Post-it Note Grids

As a part of my family binder, I created a couple of fun Post-it Brand projects.  I love how they turned out.  The idea is simple- create a grid where the Post-it Notes can be replaced weekly.

The first printable is based on meal planning.  By making a “This Week for Dinner” grid, I am more prepared for the week ahead.  Once a week I sit down to make a menu.  I then write the items for each day and refer to that for my grocery shopping trips.  Notice there are only six spots- I take Saturday off!

I used Post-it Notes throughout my Family Binder in a variety of ways because they are versatile and easy to use.  They were great for this Post-it Notes Grid and fabulous for attaching small notes on the calendar portion of my binder.   I am in with love the bright, colorful and fun new colors that the Post-it Brand is offering.  Don’t they just make you happy?  To have easy access to pens and binder necessities, I attached a Post-it Pocket on the inside of my binder too.

The other version that I made is for a weekly goal grid.  It’s the exact same idea but with realistic, small goals that I want to accomplish for the week.  For this one I used Post-it Greener Notes.  These Post-it Greener Notes use recycled material.  Functional and sustainable = win/win! I like having the goals written down so that I can refer to them.

Here’s how you can make your own Post-it Note projects:
Print the grid on plain white cardstock.  You can then laminate the print or use a sheet protector.  Standard Post-it Notes fit perfectly in the squares on the grid.  You can then change out the Post-it Notes weekly in your binder.

Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.

      Thanks Brenda! I wish I could think more along these lines for everything else. I’d be a whole lot more organized. ;)

    Thank you so much for this great idea. I am recently retired and trying to find a way to organize my time, so that I don’t waste my free time! I love post it notes.

    This is a genius organization idea…I love how simple it is! This would be perfect to link up to my Create It Thursday post…it’s live now!

    Great idea! I love post it notes to organise as putting one idea down at a time seems so much easier than working through a list. I’d never thought about putting them in a binder though … I feel a new project coming on! Thank you.

    I found this post from Pinterest. I’m in the process of making a home binder for my family and felt like there was always something missing until I found your Goals sheet! Just what I’ve been missing! Thanks for the inspiration.

    love this so much. I hope you make a lot of them next year and love the bolt colors the best so hope you make a lot more of them in 2014

    I have improved my family planner with your notes, but I also include copies of our SSI cards, Copies of all cc – in case of theft; all cc login information – incase the other needs it :) Hope this helps!

    I love all of your family binders! I’m not organized by nature at all but I’ll be returning to work after baby#2 and have to get my life together.THANKS

    I love your printable Mique. I have printed and started to organize the mini budget organizer. Is there anyway I could just get the weekly meal sized for the mini? I love it is small enough to put in my purse. Next project for me is a family binder and I can’t wait to start that either. I can’t wait to get organized.

  14. lisa says

    I love this! I brought a planner this year through ETSY but the resources that you have provided are more practical and I can organize them as I need to fit my daily life. I also have the monthly meal planner decal on my refrigerator. I used it faithfully for two months and slowly stopped. However, having it in my binder on the go and done weekly is more practical. Do you offer the post-it grid projects for the mini binders (possibley) with the smaller post-it???

  15. Rachel says

    Thank you so much for offering these wonderful printables and ideas! I can’t wait to make one for my family and think I’ll make one for my aging parents as well. Very kind of you do do this.

    HI, found your page two days ago and i havnt gotten much sleep since then :D
    really love your side and i love to start on the binders, they look amazing

    Is there a chance to get the pages in a rewritable pdf somewhere, because i have to overwrite everything from english to german, so my other family member ( most of all the little one ) can read all of it too

    Thanks for this amazing side

    Greetings from Germany,
    Jessie

    Hey I love your binders. They have given me ideas on getting organized. Do you have the recipe binder in a mini version? Thanks

  18. NormaJean says

    Love both of these organizational aids! Although I probably wouldn’t use a binder, I will put these two sheets back to back in a page protector to help organize and keep me focused each week. Thanks so much for sharing this! You creative young ladies never cease to amaze and inspire me.
