Collect any papers that would need to be put into your binder
Oh and a bit of time too :) Depending on your organizational needs it could take anywhere from an hour to a few hours to get ready.
Here is a breakdown of what I have within mine:
6. PFC Club (same idea as a PTA)- I am a member of the PFC club at my daughters school and I get lots of papers with schedules, articles to write, and a ton of other things that I am able to keep all right here for easy access!
7. Activites- Any papers for our families extracurricular activies are place in this area.
I know that this is a lot of information so if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask :)
