How To Print And Bind Your Own Weekly Planner

I have always been intrigued with making my own booklets and binding them myself.  I used to do it as a child, punching holes in pages of artwork and tying them together with strips of colored yarn. Over the years I have tried several methods of binding and have come up with another one, and of course, it involves wool sweaters. I just recently designed a fun printable compact weekly planner and I had a thought…….this would be so cute bound with a colorful felted wool strip. In this tutorial, I am going to show you how easy it is to print and bind your own weekly planner using felted wool sweaters.

So I gave it a whirl, and look how fun they turned out!

This little planner:

  • Is great to throw in your purse or bag
  • Measures 6.75 x 3.75 inches.
  • Fits a filoFax compact or personal binder
  • Has editable form fields to add your favorite quotes.
  • Has editable fields for months and year making it a perpetual planner.
  • Easy to print and bind.

You can put these planner pages in a compact binder or bind them like this.

    Homemade BBQ Sauce

    Finally, a homemade BBQ sauce without high fructose corn syrup! Have you ever tried to find a BBQ sauce at the store that does not have corn syrup in it? Well, it is challenging. We have not had BBQ sauce at our house for several years, because I could not find one I liked. I am going to share with you a homemade BBQ sauce recipe that I came across on Pinterest from Gimme Some Oven . My family loves it! It is not only delicious but surprisingly easy to make.

    When I made it for the first time, I didn’t have any liquid smoke, but I made it anyway. Personally, I don’t care for liquid smoke, but if you like it, I am sure it tastes great. Anyway, we all liked the sauce without it.

    Makes a really good BBQ sandwich, BBQ ribs, chicken, beef, and as a dip for chicken strips.

    Ingredients (About 2 cups)

    • 1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
    • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
    • 1/3 cup honey or agave nectar
    • 1/4 cup tomato paste
    • 1/4 cup molasses
    • 3 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
    • 2 tsp. liquid smoke (optional) I don’t use it, but if you like the smokey taste it is good
    • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
    • 1 tsp. garlic powder
    • 1/2 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
    • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
    • 1/2 tsp. salt

    Instructions

    • Whisk all ingredients together in a medium saucepan.
    • Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat.
    • Reduce heat to medium low and simmer (uncovered) for 20 minutes, or until the sauce has slightly thickened.

    Use the sauce immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 1 week.

    Non Toxic All-Purpose Cleaner- How to Easily Make Your Own

    non toxic all-purpose cleaner

    If you are interested in cleaning your house without toxic chemicals, this is an awesome recipe for a non toxic all-purpose cleaner that really works.  I have been making and using this cleaner for years, with great results.  The essential oils used in this blend are great germ and bacteria busters!

    This cleaner is very quick to make up and cost effective!

    all-purpose cleaner uses:

    • Toilet seat, bowl and handle
    • microwave, fridge and cabinet handles
    • faucets
    • counter tops and sinks
    • lights witches
    • and for any general cleaning purposes

    What you will need:

    • 16 oz. Spray Bottle
    • 2 teaspoons concentrated dish soap or 1 TB regular dish soap (use half that if you have soft water)
    • 30-40 drops Tea Tree, (Melaleuca) essential oil
    • Distilled or filtered water

    Other essential oils that work great are: Clove, Lemon, Geranium, Rosemary and Wild Orange. (I like to add 30 drops of Melaleuca and 10 drops of another oil).

    Mrs. Myers dish soaps are really nice to use in this cleaner because they smell so yummy! Experiment and find what smells you like. Definitely makes cleaning the bathroom a lot more enjoyable!!!

    How to make the non toxic all-purpose cleaner

    • Fill the bottle 3/4 full of water
    • Add the soap and essential oils. (Adding the soap last will keep it from foaming up and spilling all the precious essential oils out of the bottle).
    • Carefully fill the rest of the bottle up with water and shake well.
    • Shake before use.

    I love these labeled bottles. The recipes for the cleaners is printed on the label that goes on the back side of the bottle. No more searching for the recipe when it comes time to make up another batch.

    You can get the downloadable, printable PDF file and make your own labels or buy an already labeled bottle set . We keep a set upstairs and one downstairs. These make great wedding shower gifts too!

    I recommend getting some cheap cotton washcloths all the same color and use them only for cleaning. That way you will know what are cleaning cloths and what are washcloths. 

    Walmart sells a set of wash cloths called Mainstays and they are only like $4.00 for 18.

    Whenever I am somewhere else cleaning, and I am using chemical cleaners, I can sure tell the difference. I get a headache and feel so yucky afterwards. You may want to think about what you are using to clean with and if you want those chemicals in your home. I have found that there ARE great alternatives out there without giving up any cleaning power.

    The best thing is, that you can make them yourselves and save a lot of money!

    Why don’t you give it a whirl!
