5 Minute Planner Hack: Turning a Mistake into a Useful Tip

Sometimes you happen on a good hack quite by accident. In my case, this was an accident! After cutting my graph paper in half for my dashboard /capture page, I discovered that I did not cut the paper exactly in half - by about a half inch!

I decided to use it, even though I definitely like things all lined up. With the front pages more narrow that the others, a natural divider was made and it got me to thinking about my grocery list. I usually jot down during the week what we need on a sticky note and then transfer it to my shopping list before getting groceries. Last week I used the narrow paper to make my list after writing in the aisle categories of my store.

I enjoyed having my list front and center with room to write in what we were out of as well as the things I knew we would be needing. I also found the natural divider made it super easy to get to the capture page to record any information I needed to process.

Simple hack - but it is working quite nicely for me.
