Control Journal, Step 1: Supplies

The first thing you need to do is dig out a bunch of supplies to build your control journal with (that you already have on hand!). Things that you may want include:

  • A notebook/binder
  • White or colored paper (you choose)
  • Blank dividers
  • “ABC” dividers for addresses and phone numbers
  • Monthly dividers for seasonal reminders, such as birthdays and when to change the furnace filter
  • Sheet protectors (not the matte finish unless you already have some; they are hard to erase)
  • Dry erase markers in your favorite color
  • Some kind of calendar for your schedule
  • A small note pad for making lists or post-it notes
  • A zippered pouch (for stamps, paper clips, pens, and other small items)

Once you have your supplies, you’re ready to move on to step two!
