Today I’m going to show you how to take a plain binder and dress it up real pretty with a product from the dollar store.

If you watch any of my home management videos you will recognize this particular binder as being my recipe binder which I use for meal planning.

In my video I mentioned that I found this by binder at the thrift store for around $.26 and though it serves it’s purpose it’s not very pretty.

If you have a not-so-pretty binder sitting around your house I’m going to show you how to use dollar store contact paper to change the look of your binder.

After getting everything adhered to the binder I added a label so that I can easily locate my binder at my desk.
