This has been a long school term and we have one week to go. The discussions of what to do has already started. This weekend I will be putting up our holiday planner so we can add to it as we have ideas. I have added a free printable below for you to download. Do you have many plans?
Hello. My name is Paula and I am a planneraholic. I have always loved lists and planning for what needs to be done. I cannot seem to work any other way. I am always looking for a functional planner that works best for me. I have a Blog Planner that I use and am always looking for ways to make it better. Lately I have been searching for ideas for a personal planner that fits my lifestyle. I will then be working on a budget planner and a Home Management Binder. There are so many out there, ready for printing and even places that will make a personal planner up for you.
There is so much to consider when on this journey. Cost, look and effectiveness. I don’t want to spend too much. It needs to look pretty and inviting and has to fit in with our family lifestyle.
I have even joined a group on Facebook and have already discovered some fabulous things out there. Unfortunately, everything I love is in the USA and no matter how much I search, I cannot find it in Australia. Oh well. I will keep looking. If you love planners and planning head to Planner Addicts and request to join the group. You will love it.
Here are a few of my favourites:
Click on the picture below to view the range at Erin Condren. Her planners can be sent to you ready for use. They are gorgeous and very user-friendly. Price could be an issue for some people.
Jen’s planner at I Heart Organizing. This is a very reasonable price. It will take you to her Etsy store where you can buy it and have an instant download. Then you will need to print it out yourself and bind it in the way you like. Below is what it looks like when using the Martha Stewart range.
I have gone with Jenn’s planner for now as I am still searching for the perfect one and the price helps. I am thinking of making me own down the track.
Yeah, I finally have something to show for the Blog Planner I have been working on. There are still some pages I would like to add but this is a good start. Graphics are courtesy of Petit Tatti
The Planner consists of:
3 blank monthly planner pages – different colours for more choices
* You will need 12 copies, one for each month of the year
* Write the month at the top and then use the Yearly Calendar to see where 1st goes for each month. Fill in the days in the coloured circles.
Weekly blog planner page
* You will need 52 of these should you be blogging every week. I do 10 at a time in case I don’t blog in a particular week.
Blog expense tracker sheet
* Print out sheets as needed
Blog statistics page
* You should only need one of these
More details of how I use these pages will be in a later post.
You are able to download the pages for free by clicking on the pictures below. I also use a Yearly Calendar and insert this after the cover page. This is used to circle significant dates for the year ahead. I only ask that you use it for personal use and not sell or download it to share as your own.
Organising is always something I strive to be better at. The Mum on the Run blog is no different. There are so many gorgeous Blog Planners out there but I thought I would design my own. Once complete it will be free to download, for a short time. I am also working on adding a shop to the blog where all free printables and new cheap ones will be available to download. Below there is a sneak peak of what the cover looks like. Stay tuned for the rest.
