Staying Organized on the Run

I'm not sure how everyone else does it, but when I run errands I usually have a bunch of paper to keep up with. (stuff for the post office, coupons, lists, etc) I decided to make something to keep myself organized for such outings.

I searched for a tutorial for a notebook cover and couldn't find what I wanted, so I had to wing it. I needed something for a regular 5x7 notepad that I could tear sheets out of when I was through with them. (all I could find were tutorials for composition notebook covers)  It took a little tweaking, but in the end it came out just right. Now I have a pretty and organized way to keep up with my junk when I am out and about.

How do you keep up with all your "paper stuff" when you are out running errands?
Do you just sew your own stuff when you can't find what you are looking for?

  3. You did a great job, Nikki. No, I do not sew things when I can not find them at the store. I do not currently have the time nor the talent to do such an awesome thing. :-) I just shove my papers in my purse, and I don't look nearly as cute as you do! Blessings!
