how i stay organized

running a small business and growing a blog requires a certain amount of organization. a few months ago i put together a "business binder" and it's really helped me keep track of sales, schedule blog posts, keep track of giveaways, and has helped me keep on track with my goals.

i decorated my binder with glittery scrapbook paper and other patterns that reflect my designs. 
wondering where i got the stamp?? check out my post here.

i picked up a package of the binder divider folders and labeled them with the categories -blog schedule, -to do, -orders, -completed, -receipts, -craft fairs, -stores (wholesale), -ideas/inspiration, and a blank folder for any random papers.

it's been really nice having one place to keep all of my paperwork and comes in extra handy if i'm traveling or want to pull out info away form the computer.

the idea section i use to plan out new products and prototypes, color combinations, and any inspiration.
the blog calendar is printed out a month in advance (plain 'ol calendar from iCal) and i try to plan out my posts at least a week in advance. this has been really helpful to keep track of giveaways, sponsors, etc.
i recommend using a pencil, because if you're anything like me.. you'll change your mind about things a few times before settling.

Great idea!
I have gotten to where I just use iCal too and not a fancy shmancy one ;)

Love this! I am an intense lover of organization so I get weirdly excited when I see things like this. Right now I'm currently working on getting my junk in order!
