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 options 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.
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 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 better quality paper is better.
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.
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.
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.
