It is hard to believe that it has been 5 years since I made my first printable planner. It was 2013 when I first introduced the student version for free, and its still one of my most popular pins. Over the years I’ve given the printables for free, I’ve sold them on Etsy, and last year I launched my own store. My life has become exponentially busier, and my crafting business has grown in those years as well.
All of this leads me to one big decision. It is one that I’ve been struggling with for the past several months. In monetizing the planners, I’ve lost a lot of the joy I used to get in making them. Selling things is exhausting. There’s a LOT of listings to contend with (since I like to offer so many options) and tons of back-end security stuff (don’t want to jeopardize my readers’ information!) and frankly, I dread it. I put it off. I’ve even tried to pay other people to do it for me – negating the money the planners would make.
So I’m not doing it any more. The basic planners are now FREE. Read it again. Free Printable Student Planner. My 70+ hours of design work is yours. FREE. Now I can gush to you all about how much I love the planners, how I want them to help people get their lives organized, how I want to make your life a little bit easier. I can share – truly share – these with you, without asking for a dime.
I’ll be keeping up with all of the amazing planner versions (Regular Month planners, Regular Week planners, Meal Planning, Fitness Tracking, Food logging and so on), but for now, I want to introduce the June 2016 – June 2017 Student and Teacher Planner Versions.
FEATURES: Every year I revisit the planner design, adding new items and features to make this the best personal planner it can be. For the Student and Teacher versions, I went so far as to make the planners June – June so that they could span a whole school year without interruption. That isn’t all of the features, though!
- Available in full (letter 8.5in x 11in) size.
- Each Week has space to track homework or lesson planning, notes or supplies.
- Yearly view page, with 2016 and 2017 laid out for future planning.
- Contacts, Usernames/Passwords page.
- “Sneak peak” of upcoming month in the month view.
- Filled in dates. (This is no fill-in-the-blank planner!)
- Notes page at the end of every month, so you have a stopping point to put your Add Ons.
- Additional Notes page at the end of the year, as a space to record things you’ll want to copy into your next planner.
- PDF format, set up to print front-to-back. Use the Geo Grey or Nanani Purple colors if you’d like to print in greyscale.
COLORS: One of my favorite things to do with the planner designs is create new patterns and colors. I’m a HUGE FAN of the Blue Wave color, and I use it in a ton of crafts, on my nails, on my phone, on my kitchen walls, etc. Not everyone can have taste as good as mine (lol!) so I’ve hand designed several other colored patterns to allow for plenty of choices. The Love Pink and Nanani Purple are new this year, and inspired by two friends of mine! (Tip: The Geo Grey and Nanani Purple both look great on black and white printers, to save costs!)
ADD ONS: The core of the planners sets the tone, but the add ons make it special and unique to you. Over the years I’ve created several Printable Planner Add-Ons that compliment the planner and allow for even more organized living! These are still available in the store for a new low price of $4 –
but if you use coupon code “back2school” you can get any 3 add-ons for free! Sorry! The coupon has expired.
Made specially for teachers, these curriculum worksheets allow planning and tracking for curriculum by class or by student. They are great for brainstorming, planning, or even just keeping track! [$4 in the Shop]
These pages are one of my favorite planner additions. They allow you to use your planner as a notebook, to keep long-form information in one place, or even to make a stand-alone notebook that matches your planner.[$4 in the Shop]
For student or parent, this class schedule provides a great overview of each week day. Use it to plan out a semester’s courses, record school conflicts for your job, or just know where you are headed next (or what you are skipping).[$4 in the Shop]
Keep a log of your stats weekly, monthly or whenever you have a minute. The first step in building a better blog business is to evaluate where you are. These pages help with that AND they allow a great space to write tasks, ideas and more![$4 in the Shop]
For a lot of bloggers, sponsored posts are a large part of their business revenue. This worksheet helps to organize what posts are due when, and the details of each assignment. You can track your required Social media shares as well![$4 in the Shop]
I’m not sure how parents of multiple children are able to keep up with extra curricular activities! Hopefully these sheets can help with some of the burden. This tracker has space to record coach/supervisor names and contact info, important dates (like games or recitals) and any other info you might need.[$4 in the Shop]
Meal Plan & Shopping
For some people, the planner with built in meal planning is ideal. For others, they want something to tear out and take shopping. That is where is tear-out meal plan and shopping list comes in! I use mine weekly and then hang it on the fridge![$4 in the Shop]
Dates To Remember
Whether you are writing down dates as they happen (baby’s first steps, first word etc) or planning for your future (When do buy the wedding dress, when to hire a caterer) or maybe just keeping track of birthdays and anniversaries – this add on will be a life saver![$4 in the Shop]
GET YOURS NOW: Go Grab your favorite design from the shop! Then all you have to do is pick a color and accessorize! (Which is actually a pretty hard thing to do. They are all SO CUTE!)
