A couple weeks ago, I introduced you to Naked Binder, a Life Your Way sponsor, and their line of environmentally friendly binders. They also sent me a set to test for myself, and I really, really like the look and feel of these binders. They’re made from 97% post consumer waste and are completely recyclable, which is pretty awesome, but they’ve also been independently tested to withstand more than 250,000 flexes. That’s a lot of use!
In addition, the project binders come with your choice of colorful spine wraps. I think all office supply addicts agree that color-coding makes everything better, and these snazzy spine wraps are a great way to organize your binders by color.
I set out to think of all of the ways you can use binders around your home, but I have a feeling this list is still incomplete, so I’d love to hear what other ways you use binders!
- Home management notebook
- Pages you’ve pulled out of magazines
- Recipes & kitchen tips
- Manuals & warranty information
- Holiday planning
- Photos and scrapbooking
- Sermon or Bible study notes
- Brainstorming and continuing education
- Important reference documents
- Organize receipts and other financial information
- School binders (color coded by child!)
- Lego manuals, puzzle guides, game manuals, etc
- Save special artwork
- Baseball card collection
- Activity books: place activities in page protectors and do with dry erase markers
- Lesson plans and printable curricula (color coded by year)

How else do you use binders?
