How do you use a LifePlanner™ Binder?

Learn about the LifePlanner™ Binder, how to use it and its add-on accessories, note pages, and our proprietary 8-ring hole punch! Here are our top tips for how to use your binder planner.

(Note, this article focuses on the LifePlanner™ Binder, but the tips apply to all of our 8-ring binder planners. And while the following images demonstrating how to use our binders feature past planner designs, you can explore all-new 2021 - 2022 Binder Planners here!)

How to Open & Load the LifePlanner™ Binder

Arrange the LifePlanner™ exactly the way you want in a binder! You can remove, add, and rearrange the pages and accessories to fit your schedule no matter how many times it changes!

Open and close your binder using the center rings.

Load your planning pages one section at a time. Add new inserts like extra note pages and page protectors to your binder for extra room for note-taking, list-making, bullet journaling, storage, and more! As with any binder, it's best to flip through your book one section at a time.

Pro Tip: For agile and portable planning, only load and carry the active pages you need or want. Use a Planner Storage Box to store your unused pages for safekeeping and used pages for memory keeping!

How To Use Snap-In Accessories in the LifePlanner™ Binder

Enjoy all the classic coiled LifePlanner™ snap-in accessories you love, including dashboards, bookmarks, sticky notes, and all! Simply snap them into your binder as you would a coiled planner.

The best part about snap-in accessories is that it’s fun and easy to swap them out and move them around your binder. Snap them out by gently pulling them out and upward.

Our must-have classic coiled sticker sheets fit perfectly in both the coiled and binder versions of the LifePlanner™. Simply load your sticker pages leaving one hole free at the top and bottom of the binder rings. New every year, and a fun and functional extra feature included with every LifePlanner™, use the four full sticker sheets to infuse color and excitement into your planning!

How To Add Storage to the LifePlanner™ Binder

Add sticky pockets to your binder for extra storage. From extra sticker sheets to receipts, loose paper, and more, just stick a sticky pocket to the interior of the binder (in the front and in the back) to store more!

Now that you know how to use, care for, and make the most of your LifePlanner™ Binder, have fun setting it up and planning your way to a more organized day!
