OK, so here's what you'll need:
A binder, one with a sturdy cover
- this will for the base of our organizer. I got a reasonably sturdy one at the store just a bit ago for $0.75 since we're in the middle of a "back to school" bonanza. You'll probably want one made of a stiff backing, covered in vinyl.
A box of Velcro
- Be sure to get the kind with an adhesive back
so you can just put it right on the binder without any additional work. I wanted broad swaths of velcro so it wouldn't take a whole lot of effort to cover a large area, so that's what I picked up. This box cost about $5.00. I picked the kind that said "heavy duty" because:
1. It said heavy duty. 2. That must mean it's better.
A Fishing Jacket!
-This is my favorite part of the project. I tried to think of something that had lots of smallish pockets that I could use as a basis for the organizer, and this sprung to mind. In addition to being convenient, this will also give you street cred in Montana.
- The fishing jacket is tan, but the velcro and the binder are black. This cannot stand. I bought some black dye to remedy the situation.
