Yay- Please post pics of your binder when it's done- I'd love to see how people adapt theirs.

So I have started putting together some spreadsheets to help with my 2013 trip. I feel they will end up being a lifesaver, cause it looks as though the trip will include close to 20 people if not more. I hope to remember to post them after I am done...

The main reason I came on here was to post that the Container Store has miniature 3 ring binders. They are not half size but still helpful.

Measurements: 9" x 7" x 1-1/4"
Price: $15.99

We are going in May and I am so EXCITED~ I saw these wonderful amazing planning journals and knew I needed one. So... enter hubby. I am so creatively challenged it's not even funny, seriously .

My hubby on the other hand is super creative so I begged and pleaded (actually just asked once...lol) and he consented to help me. We were so blessed to find a 9x7 3 ring binder in PERFECT condition at Goodwill for $1.00. WOOHOO

I had some scrapbooking supplies (though I never scrapbooked a day in my life, I just thought the items were cute) and presented them to DH who came up with this cover and side. How cute is this??? I haven't added any pages yet but they are coming! I am an avid organizer and planner just lack the creative juices. BUT I will carry on and keep you updated.

Thanks for looking

All of these binders are amazing. Needless to say I was inspired to start my own even though my trip is still a year and half away. (Never to early to start planning!) I'll post some photos when it isn't the middle of the night.

my thoughts exactly Kate
I made a planner book out of one of my son's old school note books that i was quite proud of until I read these boards and realized I could have soooo much more fun with it. The planner I have done just has maps and cue cards stuck in with cool pics in for illustrations- the cue cards contain info such as EMH opening times, parade times, rides I want to go on etc.
but now I want a 'proper' binder with small cue cards to take in the parks and pockets for KTTW cards and maps and OMG!!! I need to plan!!!

Wow those look really awesome! Maybe I should start trying to do a binder instead of getting there and remembering what I forgot to do later...

I saw this and immediately wanted to make one of my own. My mom is a huge scrapbooker, but me, not so much. It takes too much time (for me) and I rarely get pictures printed.

Anyway, I was searching for a journal I liked, but was having no luck when I stumbled upon this at Michael's:

SMASH

They're essentially what the OP posted, except pre-made. They have a bunch of accessories that you can get for them as well. Perfect for me as I was hitting a wall trying to find a journal I liked. I've been putting mine together a little bit and so far I love it. I am excited to take it with me on my trip!

Just wanted to let all of you wanting to take the planner-making plunge know that Staples carries the half-size binders in multiple colors! They are Staples brand, and come with a clear pocket on the front, perfect for personalization! They also carry page protectors, tabbed dividers, and pockets for that size binder.
The new Martha Stewart line at Staples also has binders, tabbed dividers, zip-loc pockets, etc for both the 5x8 size and 8x11 size!
