A Little Organization goes a long way and an organizational planner FREEBIE

I (heart) being organized.  I realize it may be an obsession of mine.
My first goal over summer break was to organize my TPT and blog information.
It was a mess Friends!  I had receipts in envelopes all over the house.  Chicken scratches about ideas for new teaching units and blog posts written in several different notebooks.  Talk about an organizational nightmare especially when it came time to do my taxes. Ugh!!!

So I vowed that I. HAD. TO. DO. SOMETHING.

Here's my new and improved organizational system for TPT and blogging.

Doesn't it look fabulous!  I LOVE all the colors!  Makes me want to "invent" something to write down just to be able to write in these new organizers.

The Life Planner is from Erin Condren.  I use this all the time to jot down information, notes, and important events.  I keep a calendar in my Iphone, but I also like to have things written down as well.

This little "baby" below is what I am most proud of:  " My TPT Financial and Product Planner"

I created a planner/organizer in which I could keep all of my needed information about TPT product ideas, blog posts, and tax and financial information.

Inside of this 3 ring binder is:

1. A 2013 Blog Planner from Confessions of a Homeschooler.  You can download this for free by clicking HERE.

2.  All the pages of "My TPT Financial and Product Planner".  You can download this for free by clicking HERE to download this from my TPT store.

Inside it includes:

Product Idea Pages
Each page includes a place to write the title for your project, activities to include in your project, graphics and fonts used, and a completion date.

" My TPT and Blogging Finances" Pages
I created a page for each month. Each page includes an area to write expenses and income  for that particular month.  Also included with this are labels to place on manila folders to create monthly pockets in which to place important receipts.  These folders can be 3 hole punched and placed in the binder as well.

The last thing I have included is " Important Tax Information" for the year.
If you are someone who pays quarterly taxes, there is a page to record this information and the date taxes were paid.
I intentionally kept the year off of this packet so that it could be reprinted each year and a new binder created.  I'm hoping this will keep me organized and all the information during tax season will be at my finger tips. 

If this looks like something that would help you with your product and blogging organization, please click on the photo below for this FREE download.  Enjoy!
