7 Habits Planner Wallet

Planner wallet

I've started reading the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People and it's really got some great ideas!

One of the suggestions is a specific way of planning out your time. I looked online for a planner with this layout but couldn't find one, so I've created my own.

I wanted something that would hold these 8 1/2 x 11 planning sheets but could fold up smaller, to fit in my purse.

I'm not going to make this a tutorial, (there are several things I'd change if I did this again) but I'll give you a few ideas so you can design your own!

Interior of wallet

On the inside of the wallet, the planner sheet is held down with a piece of elastic. I thought about tying it with ribbon but decided that would add too much bulk when the wallet was folded up.

Pencil pocket
There's also a small pocket and pencil holder.

Clear pocket inside
This clear vinyl pocket has its edges sewn down with rickrack. This is for my personal mission statement. The book suggests you write one for yourself and then keep it somewhere you can easily refer to it. (I love this idea! I haven't finished mine yet but I'm working on it.)

Exterior of wallet

Here's the outside of the wallet. As you can see, I've been inspired by a quilting class I'm taking. With four pieces of cardboard sewn into it, it's stiff enough to write on and yet can be folded up!
