If you’ve spent any time in the planner community I am sure you have seen all the super cute dashboards and dividers people have made. Let me tell you- they are ADORABLE and I love them, but they are usually just not for me. I love dividers, tabs and paper clips because I love getting to the page I want, but I need it to be focused on function, not cuteness. I am sure a cute shaker sheet is fun to make, but it does not help me.
Anyways, I have stayed away form most dashboards but this month I wanted to try something new to help organize my lists. I decided to make a dashboard to hold a shopping list that I would refer to throughout the month. One of the things I have been working on this year is reducing the unnecessary trips to the grocery store and I am not doing so great. (Full disclosure, today I had to go to the store at 7:30 am to buy cat food. It is that bad.) I am hoping that by creating a list that I can add to all week and then have with me I will be able to get everything in one trip and save myself time, gas, and money.
The dashboard itself is made from a folder from the Dollar Spot at target. I cut it down using my paper cutter and punched it with my Happy Planner Punch. If you only buy one accessory for your planner, GET THE PUNCH. It is worth it! Want to know what size to cut it to? Check out my dimensions post here and find your planner.
I then cut regular paper down to fit on the dashboard and attach with washi tape. When I’m done with the list I just remove and add another.
What do you think? Do you have any other creative ways to hold onto a list in your planner?
Need a punch? I have this one and love it!
