It's called a PocketMod and has been done for years.
Here's there website...

You can use plain old ruled binder paper, but if you want to customize it, you can add the pre-made pages and print it out of your computer.

The pre-made page setups are calendars, schedules, to do lists, conversion tables, checkbook registers, etc.

And the best thing is, it's FREE!
I've been using it for several years and love 'em.
