Downloading & Printing
HOW DO I DOWNLOAD MY NEW PLANNER?
Once you have completed your purchase, you will receive a PDF to download with the title of the Kit you chose. If you bought multiple Kits, you will receive one PDF for each individual Kit.
Open that PDF document and you will see a list of five links. The first link says "Download Planner" (or "Access Membership" if you are a Forever Member).
When you click that link, you will open a web page to a Google Drive Folder containing all color versions of the Kit you purchased. You can download or print the color option you prefer from that page.
*You do not need a Google account to access this folder.
I CLICKED DOWNLOAD BUT NOTHING HAPPENED.
Some web browsers automatically download the file but don’t open it afterward. Check your browser downloads section or your computer’s download section to see if it ended up there.
CAN I PRINT MY BINDER KITS MYSELF AT HOME?
Absolutely! Most Organized-ish Binder Kit owners prefer to print their Kits at home. All Kits are optimized for standard 8.5x11 printer paper and basic ink cartridges.
Alternatively, you may choose to have your Kits printed at a local office supply store or print shop.
THE TAB AT THE TOP GOT CUT OFF DURING PRINTING.
Sometimes printers change page sizes and margins to optimize space. An easy way to make sure your planners print the full page without cutting anything off is to select the "fit to page" option. It's usually a little checkbox or dropdown menu.
WHAT IF I WANT TO PRINT EXTRA COPIES OF ONE PAGE?
All Organized-ish Binder Kits come with one page template each, and there will be times when you'll want more than one copy of that page. (For example: calendars, contact lists, and shopping lists)
To print multiple copies of one single page, in the Print Settings, change the button from "Print All" to "Pages # to #". Insert the page number you want to print in both # boxes and enter the quantity you want to print.
CAN I PRINT IN BLACK AND WHITE?
Yes! Your purchase includes printable versions of three color schemes: Cardinal Hill, Coffee & Cream, and Tabbly Cat. The Tabby Cat version has been optimized for black and white printing to ensure everything shows up well.
PAPER SUGGESTIONS, PLEASE!
The recommended paper weight is standard 20lb copy paper for most kits, but we suggest using a slightly heavier/thicker paper for the Essential Home Management Binder Collection. (Home, Family, Finance, Emergency, End Of Life) These five are your most important kits and serve as a portable filing cabinet for referencing during emergencies and monthly maintenance, so a higher-quality paper is better.
Can I Print in A5? (half letter size)
Yes! Although the Binder Kits are made for standard letter size, they can definitely be resized for A5 or Half Letter.
Here's how to do it:
1. When you click Print on your Binder Kit on your desktop computer, adjust the paper size to A5.
2. Change the sizing to "Fill Entire Paper"
3. Load your A5 paper into your printer.
4. Click Print and it will automatically be resized.
*Note: The cover page will print a colored bar on the top and bottom but the sides will be cut off. No big deal, it still looks fine. All the actual planner pages print fully. If you leave it on the "Print Entire Image" option, the pages will be smaller and won't fill the paper correctly.

I HAVE A PLANNER IDEA. HOW DO I SUGGEST IT FOR AN UPCOMING RELEASE?

HOW DO I KNOW IF MY SHELTER OR RESCUE NOMINATION WAS CHOSEN?
We donate 5% of all Binder Kit Membership sales every month to an animal shelter or rescue organization. If your nomination is chosen, we will email you to let you know. We only donate to one center per month so if we don’t get to yours immediately, it may be on our waitlist for a future month.

Great! We would love to hear from you. Send us a message here and our team will reply as soon as we're able.
Binding & Storage
WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO BIND MY KITS?
Organized-ish Binder Kits are made to be stored inside a standard three-ring binder, but you can store yours however you'd like. Some people prefer hinged folders, and others prefer scrapbooks.
You can either punch holes in the pages and put them directly into your binder, or you can slide them into plastic sheet protectors.
We recommend storing the five Kits from the Essential Home Management Collection in one binder together and keeping it in a central location of your home for easy access for all family members in case of emergency.
If you get a large enough binder, you can store many Kits all together, separated by tabbed dividers.
DEETS ON YOUR FAVORITE PLANNER PENS?
Ballpoint pens are recommended for filling out the pages in your Organized-ish Binder Kit. Gel-based pens can bleed through your paper and smear, and pencils can fade or transfer onto the page on top of it.
Our favorite pens are these Sharpie Pens, which are different from Fine Point Sharpie Markers. Sharpie Pens don't bleed or smear, and come in a good variety of colors.
And if you're a frequent mistake maker (we feel you!) these erasable pens are really great, too.
I GOT THE ESSENTIAL HOME MANAGEMENT PLANNER. WHERE SHOULD I STORE IT?
YAY You! The Essential Home Management Bundle Kit is going to change your life!
We recommend keeping it in a heavy duty three ring binder in a central location of your house, like a cabinet in the living room, a shelf in your office, or a nook in your entryway.
Make sure everyone in the house knows where to find it in case of emergency. It's a good idea to let close family members who don't live with you but have access to your home know where it is, too, in case a disaster happens and they need your info to assist you.
DO YOU HAVE SOME CREATIVE INSPIRATION FOR FUN WAYS TO CUSTOMIZE THE KITS?
