    I got it at Walmart. The brand is DayOne. It also comes in Black. I paid $25.00 for it up here in Canada.

    It was really easy to put together, all I had to do was change the paper size to "half" and away I went. With the help of some internet clipart and some awesome designs from the Creative DISigns forum I was in business.

    PS. Your comments really cracked me up!! I can't wait to show the family that there IS some appreciation for organization in the world!:goodvibes

    Hi:banana:

    I'm so excited to start my own. We're going in August and I know we'll need a schedule and strategy to have the best time. So I might as well have it in an awesome and fun organizer:woohoo:

    I'm having trouble finding the Creative DISigns forum. Do you have a link??

    Thanks, Dana

    Okay I have a really silly question! LOL
    The problem I'm having with these smaller binders is I can't figure out how to hole punch the pages with the 7 ring binders- without punching nine million holes LOL! I have a 3punch adjustable... Kathy? How did you do yours? :rotfl2:

    That is the one down side to the small binder. All I do is take a sheet that I removed from the binder (the MANY pages that they come with) and I hold it up to my printed page and I use a single hole punch. It is a little more time consuming than punching all at once but it works like a charm.

    I'm sooo glad you liked my addition to the thread. I was feeling a little like a "thread-crasher"!
    Please continue to ask any questions you may have.

    No no no you're fine!! And I figured something out. I am a nut for tab dividers that have the pockets in them. That was one of the reasons I wanted to switch from a 'blank book journal' to a ringed binder. That way each day has a tab and in the pocket I can put my ADR card, Mousekeeper envelope, and any other whatnot I collect that day.

    Of course, they don't make small ringed binder- sized tab dividers let alone pocket kind! But I stuffed one of the planner pages inside the pocket and viola! Very easy to cut it with my ummm... whatever you call the scrapbook cutting thingy!!

    I am glad I'm not the only slightly OCD planner :rotfl2:

    I was going to make some pockets out of scrapbook paper. Although heavier cardstock may be a better idea.
    Boy, do I ever feel at home in this thread!

    WOW! I did not realize there were others like me!! My family thinks I am crazy when it comes to Disney planning. It brings out the OCD in me. I can not wait to get started on my planner for our next trip. Thanks for the ideas and inspiration. :yay:

    All my planning for our June trip is done. I've been wondering what else I can do until then. HERE'S my answer :banana: Only hitch is my kids won't know until the week before we leave, so I'm going to have to work on it after they're in bed!

    Off to Walmart and Michael's this weekend :yay:

    ooo..oooo...ooo!!! I'm SO in! I love to scrapbook and totally would never have thought of this idea. It's way better than trying to organize absolutely everything after the trip is done. My daughters are sleeping over their Grammy's tonight and I have most of the day tomorrow to myself, so it looks like I'll be heading to Walmart to have a peek at these binders. This is our first trip to Disney and I just booked it 4 days ago, so I'm in the infant stage of our planning, perfect time to start my binder. I'm so excited!!!!:yay:
    Like someone else said--I feel so at home here on this thread!
