December 2018 Personal Planner – FREE Printable

It finally feels like life is settling down here. 

There are still presents to buy and wrap, Christmas parties to attend, a service project, and a swim meet, but so much fun to be had! However, the tree is up, decorations are spread around the house, and it’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

We’ll be giving ourselves a bit of a break during the month of December, hopefully about three weeks. A time to rest, recoup, and relax and truly enjoy the Christmas season. My idea of relaxing involves watching Hallmark Christmas movies, lots of hot tea, and books surrounding me.

If you’d like to lay out your upcoming month along with me, I have a free download of my December 2018 Personal Planner Pages – try them out this month and see how they work for you.  If you like them, grab the 2019/2020 Yearly Planner and get a jump on planning the next few months. 

A Peek Inside My Planner

If you’d like to take a look at how I’ve set up my yearly planner, I’ve explained it more in this post here, as well as given links to my favorite pens (the convenience of pencils, but erasable ink!).

Don’t Miss The Daily To-Do List

Daily to do list free printable

 
My Daily To-Do List is pretty basic, but hopefully it will work for you too. There is an area to make a list of things to accomplish, household goals, appointment, meals for the day, and even a space to record exercise and water intake. Each page in the document is identical so you can print them off, cut the page in half, and have two lists. If you print them front to back, you’ll have four to-do lists and save a little paper.

Hope you all have a wonderful month!! I’d love to hear your plans!

 

November 2018 Personal Planner – FREE Printable

November is promising to be a FULL month: two birthdays, a LEGO competition, two weekend swim meets, a week-long musical, family visiting from out of town, and Thanksgiving.  Phew! And then we move into all the Christmas planning. I’m partially not wanting to even think about it all…it’s a bit overwhelming, quite honestly.

Our household projects – well, no progress! We finally settled on a paint color but haven’t had the time to work on it yet. The original color ended up being completely different than we thought it would be. 

It will get done, but there are so many other things to do in the mean time…so it sits and waits.

Needless to say, my brain needs a little help staying organized and on top of things!

October 2019 Personal Planner – FREE Printable

We just returned from a weekend camping trip and I so wish it could have been a little longer. The weather was amazingly gorgeous (there has been SO MUCH RAIN this summer) and we really couldn’t have asked for a better weekend. And honestly, it was a much needed time together as a family. 

Our household projects – well, they are moving a little slowly! We have plans to repaint the schoolroom, but the green paint requires a layer of primer first and below is literally how far we’ve gotten since we’ve had a lot of other stuff going on. 

It will get done, but there are so many other things to do in the mean time…so it sits and waits.

Swim season is back in full swing and McKenna’s musical practices are keeping us busy on weekends as well. At the rate we’re going, life looks to be opening up in January.

September 2018 Planning Pages – FREE Printable

We’re two weeks into our school year and finally I’m feeling like I can breathe a little bit. Not everything was done and in “ready” mode when we started, but we eased in and kept moving. 

There are projects and updates that need to be both completed and started around the house. After eight years of living in a house with four kids, the wear is starting to show. 

Trim needs to be touched up and repainted. Walls have dings that need to be patched and then be repainted. Our laundry room is getting an overhaul and finally some cabinets. No huge projects, but little things that require some time and patience. 

For some reason I felt painting the schoolroom in the midst of trying to reorganize everything was a good idea. During that process, I managed to pull off some of the drywall thanks to some adhesive wall maps we had – so we had to add a little time to the overall project. 

I’m hoping to go with a pale blue color and lighten up the overall area. I have loved the green color but am ready for a little change. 

Meanwhile, swim practices start up the day after Labor Day and McKenna’s musical is now practicing twice a week since she has a lead. The calendar is quickly filling up and we still want to squeeze in some camping time before it gets too cold. 

If you’d like to lay out your upcoming month along with me, I have a free download of my September 2018 Personal Planner Pages – try them out this month and see how they work for you.  If you like them, grab the 2019/2020 Yearly Planner and get a jump on planning the next few months.

August 2018 Planning Pages for Mom – Free Printable

Confession: last month resulted in little homeschool planning until the last two days of the month. 😳 Yeah. Can we just say a little out of my comfort zone!

Needless to say, that means there’s a lot that needs to happen in the next few weeks. On the one hand, I’m a wee bit panicky, but on the other hand – well, we’re moving into our thirteenth year of homeschooling and I feel a bit more relaxed on that front, especially since we usually ease into our school year. 

Mentally I’m ready for a bit of a winding down now that our swim season is over. The girls are still going back and forth to work, but it’s much more manageable and now we can sit and relax some too. 

If you’d like to lay out your upcoming month along with me, I have a free download of my August 2018 Personal Planner Pages – try them out this month and see how they work for you.

New Student Planner Covers for 2018-2019

One of the things I love about our student planner is that the kids have a chance to OWN it by adding in their information, including filling out the dates for each month. A few years ago I started selling a PDF version of the planner I created for my girls and each year update the covers (your purchase allows access to a ‘buyers only’ page where optional pages are added, including additional dated covers and other pages as readers/users request).

Each of the *new* covers has a calendar for the years 2018-2019 (the 2018 and 2018-19 covers) or 2019-2020 (the 2019 covers). 

Want a peek inside? I promise it’s super simple, full of color, and ready to download and print. This is one of ours from a few years ago.

A quick note: I figured out that our printer will print BORDERLESS. It was one of the paper choices in settings. In the video you’ll see some of the pages that we experiments with (ones that were or weren’t printed all the way to the edge). Our front and back covers were printed onto cardstock and then laminated for extra durability. We use a heavy weight paper (24 lb.) to print the planner and make the pages a little thicker.
