You could make a simple snap-bound or post bound book :D materials should not run you more than $30, if you are good at bargain hunting. Sales are everywhere in craft stores, and you could always build your materials over a few weeks/months until you have everything. I use a snap-bound scrapbook with the page protectors, and it works amazingly! Other than that, you could buy a thick journal and section off a certain amount of pages per section, and tab them with the sticky tabs from any office section or supply store :D Hope that helps!

You can buy little binder hole covers at walmart, they are at the pencil area. You can't miss them.
