DIY Old book into a PLANNER

IMG-20171028-WA0034If you are like me, who is obsessed with planning, journal-ling and trying to make endless to do lists than i am sure you go an extra mile to invest in a good planner. Its nice to have fancy expensive and colorful planners but every time  you buy one you end up realizing that it doesn’t have space or columns for all your to do lists. Something is always missing.

So instead of  digging hole in your pocket I decided to make a customized planner as per my needs, at a reasonable cost and from an old book lying around. It isn’t as colorful or fancy as the ones we from market but surely it serves its purpose. It wasn’t even time consuming and stole away two hours of my Sunday.

The entire purpose of this DIY is to make use of resources you already have at your house. Do not spend on expensive stationary or fancy covering. You can make a fine planner with the things available to you.
