Organizing can be very enjoyable but it can also cost a lot of money. For this post, I`ll be sharing with you an inexpensive do-it-yourself organizer. This can be used for organizing bills, note cards, receipts, and cash. Just like with almost any D.I.Y. projects, the great thing about this organizer is that it`s customizable! You can put your own touch in the design and create your personalized organizer without spending a lot.

      1. Put double-sided tapes at the bottom and front part of the envelopes. Make sure that as you put the double-sided tapes, they are properly aligned with the bottom edge/line of the envelope.

          You can put one whole double sided tape for the entire length of the envelope. However, to save double-sided tape, you can simply cut 3 1" - 1 1/2" double sided tapes to put in the left, middle and right sides.

      2. Remove the double-sided tape and combine the two envelopes together by sticking the bottom areas. Do this one by one until you`ve stuck all envelopes together. Make sure that they`re all aligned to one another.
