Don't have dividers?
You can make your own by attaching folded pieces of paper or different colored post-it notes along the edge of a piece of paper. Just be sure to have them extend out from the edge of the paper before stapling or gluing, and stagger each one slightly lower than the one before. A finished example has been provided.
