About a year ago I switched from a standard size wallet into a Kate Spade Wellesley planner. I did this in an effort to keep everything together while I’m on the go. I must say it’s worked out perfectly. I have a spot for everything and receive compliments all the time during checkout.
– Business Card Inserts
– Kate Spade Wellesley Planner
– Annie Plans Printables List Insert
– Recollections Pouch
The first thing I did was to purchase some business card inserts* from Amazon. I use them to store all of my bank and loyalty cards. The Day Runner inserts are my favorite but I also purchased these Day Timer* inserts which work just as great! I recommend them both. Next, I purchased some inserts from AnniePlansPrintables. Her shop sells several different layouts but I actually purchased the personal size “lists” printable so that I could write down to do’s on the go. Annie also sells a ton of differently sized printables so even if you aren’t using a Kate Spade you can get another size that fits your planner perfectly.
After that, I made some cash envelopes. Now, I first heard of cash envelopes from a Dave Ramsey group I’m a part of and I decided to make some in hopes of managing some of the categories I tend to overspend. If you’d like to make your own, I included a free download of the cash envelopes for my email subscribers. You can download it by signing up at the bottom of this page.
Finally, the last section in my wallet is just a Recollections zip pouch from Michaels, which as you can tell I just use to keep my loose change, keys or any loose items. The back of the planner also has a pen loop and a small pocket for some extra storage.
