It is that time a year again my second favorite season of all – it is PLANNER TIME!
Now, Maybe you’ve already gotten the Free Student Planner. Maybe you are starting your planner journey for the first time, or maybe you’ve been getting one of my planners every year since I started sharing them 6 years ago. Maybe you stumbled here from Pinterest (welcome, newcomer!) and you are just looking for something cute and functional to get your s**t together in 2017. I hear you.
In any case, I’m hoping you’ll love your next planner!
In the past 5 years I’ve tried tons of ways to list/store my planners. The latest was via email sign up, but a lot of people found it took too long and wanted something more instant. So, this version of the planner is back in my Planner Shop. But don’t worry! The planner is still free! While you are there you can also pick out some great Add Ons to customize with!
If you’d like something more than the basic monthly free planner – check out the other planner options in the shop. I’ve made Meal Planning, Food Log, Fitness Tracking, Lesson Planning and Weekly View planners as well!
FEATURES: I like to think that this planner is one of the most full-featured free planners out there. I built it based on my own needs at first, and over the years I’ve tweaked it to add the features other people needed too. And hey, if there is something you think the free planner is missing – drop me an email and maybe you’ll see it in the next version!
- Available in full (letter 8.5in x 11in) size.
- Yearly view page, with 2017 and 2018 laid out for future planning.
- Contacts, Usernames/Passwords page.
- Thumbnail view of upcoming month in the month view.
- Filled in dates. (I can never be trusted with a blank-date planner. I never write them in right!)
- 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: Am I the only one who enjoys hand-crafting tiling patterns to be used as background on printables? Yes? Oh, ok. In any case, I LOVE making the colorful patterns that make up the personality of these planners. It seems like every year I design a new color to add to the collection. But don’t worry if you are trying to print black and white. The Geo Gray and Nanani Purple are great in grey scale!
ADD ONS: Believe it or not, I designed the first Blog Tracking Add On long before the actual planner. I needed it to keep myself organized. Once I saw how pretty it could be though, I knew I needed a planner to match. These Add Ons take the basic Free Planner, or any of the specialty versions (Meal Planning, Fitness Tracking, Lesson PLanning and more), and make them unique to your needs. These are available in the store for $4 – but if you use coupon code “PLANNERTIME” you can get any add-on for free! Grab a couple and save them – you can print them again next year, or as many times as you want!
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: Visit the shop and pick out your free planner. If you want something more than. 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!)
