I had so much fun creating this Direct Sales Planner. I’ve tried to think of everything so you don’t have to! There will probably be more pages than you need but you can mix and match and choose which pages work best for you.
This planner is great if you’re just starting out in direct sales or are a pro! Below are some of the 150 pages included in this set (I cannot show previews of all pages as some people have copied pages from my other planner sets).
This planner is available in 7 colours (see photo above). To purchase, click HERE. Also available on Etsy – see HERE. Direct links to each colour: purple, pink, green, light blue, dark blue, grey, black. Can’t decide on a colour? Purchase them all HERE
The pages are letter size but can be printed at any size you like (such as half size or 8.5 x 5.5″) by changing a few setting on your printer menu. See this post for printing tips (and helpful screenshots of what to select).

Which goes perfectly with your choice of binder covers that can be personalised with any wording you like E.g. create the categories that suit you such as e.g. main meals, cakes, breads, slices, soups, seafood, family favourites, under 30min ect.
This style is very popular!
Here are some example covers and ideas:
Each binder cover comes with a matching binder spine in 3 sizes to suit any binder.
Binder Covers are also perfect for organizing craft projects, sewing patterns, a home/family binder, schoolwork, create a finance binder, home projects, meal planning, to do’s and more!
I also use them to organise my scrap paper left over from crafting e.g. I have a binder cover in pink chevron for pink scrapbooking scraps ect (I store them in clear plastic sleeves within the binder). I recommend clear-view binders. I store miscellaneous items such as embellishments in a separate binder and use plain white tab dividers decorated with a matching washi tape label (e.g. pink chevron washi tape label for pink embellishments).
Here’s some more examples of binder covers:
I created these covers for a customer yesterday:
Binder covers can be made into notebooks.
Such as this chevron recipe book
And this Blue chevron and pink notebook
I live in Australia so shipping is expensive to the USA where most of my customers live. You can create a DIY version by pairing a binder cover with I plain white paper then take it your local office shop and have it bound into a custom notebook!
