2021-2022 Yearly Planner – Organize Your Days

It’s here and ready!! The 2021-2022 version of my Yearly Planner is done and uploaded and ready to help you start planning!! (Don’t miss the sample download below to get a peek inside!)

For the last five years I have been using this Yearly Planner – a planner I put together for our family (and love). It’s a place where I can keep all of our day-to-day happenings in one place and attempt to keep life in a little bit more order. Because it was such a help to me, it was one I have shared with you all as well!

Life gets busy and truthfully my brain just can’t remember it all. I’m a paper and pen kind of girl, and seeing my week laid out in front of me is so helpful in keeping things straight. Appointments in one place. Goals and reminders of ‘to-do’ stuff. I can pull it out, open it up to the week on hand, and get a great picture of what is happening.

The yearly planner is newly updated and ready for both the 2021 and 2022 years and now has some additional features (including bonus pages, a variety of covers, and more to come!). 

My goal is to make this planner as user friendly for you all as possible, so if there are additional pages you would like to see added, please let me know! 

Yearly Planner Highlights

Here are the highlights that will help you get your weeks and months quickly organized: 

  • November 2020 – December 2022 weekly and monthly calendars – 24+ months!!
  • a 2-page weekly spread that lays flat, 8.5″ x 11″
  • one page to track a weekly “to-do” list, keep running lists, write out weekly goals, and write down things you don’t want to forget, including shopping lists
  • a one page layout for weekly appointments and top 3 daily goals
  • a link to unlock planner extras – additional pages to help get you organized, including bonus covers, address pages, note pages, and more to come!

The Week-at-a-Glance Pages

The daily planning pages also include a two page month-at-a-glance spread. These are the pages that I use to write down any major stuff first (trips, big events, etc…) and then do a rough meal plan (before I plug meals into my monthly meal planner).

Just for fun, I added quotes that I love to the month-at-a-glance pages too. It’s something little, but I love reading them!

The pages are all 8.5” x 11” in size, so they fit great in any standard binder. Personally I’m in love with this Martha Stewart binder and dividers – which is why you’ll notice the rainbow colors along the bottom of the calendar. 

  • November 2020 – December 2022 weekly and monthly calendars – 24+ months!!
  • a 2-page weekly spread that lays flat, 8.5″ x 11″
  • one page to track a weekly “to-do” list, keep running lists, write out weekly goals, and write down things you don’t want to forget, including shopping lists
  • a one page layout for weekly appointments and top 3 daily goals
  • a link to unlock planner extras – additional pages to help get you organized, including bonus covers, address pages, note pages, and more to come!

Bonus Pages

address-pagesThis year I’m adding something new to the Yearly Planner – bonus pages! I realize not everyone wants the same (or huge) file, so at the end of each planner you will find a link to a webpage where you can download extra pages to print off and use with your planner. Currently you will find:

  • address/contact page
  • books to read
  • notes pages
  • birthday/anniversary tracker
  • project tracker

More pages will be coming – and if there is one you would like to see added, please let me know!

How I’m Using My Yearly Planner

Here’s a peek at my planner so you can see how I’m using it.

My weekly to do list is just the running list of overall things that need to get done (I keep a longer list on a sheet of notebook paper in another section – until I finish up a cute printable for that!). My goals are broken down from my yearly overall goals. During January I’m trying to finish up a few books (need to get some of that book list knocked out).

There is always a list of things to do (I also have a list of projects that can be finished in 20 minutes or less). Every day I try to focus on THREE main things that need to be done and then work on other things. Those three are the ones that really need to be worked on at that point.

Daily Planning Pages printable - free download for February. Also link to the FULL 2015 Daily Planner - get organized this year.

If you’d rather use a 3-ring binder for your planner, grab some cute tabbed dividers  for sectioning out different things that you want to keep handy: a cleaning schedule, meal planning, recipes, finances, and other important information.

My new favorite option is having the planner spiral bound! I’ve been taking mine to Staples and they coil bound it for me for $4.99. I am loving the different format and will continue to use this option since it slides into my computer bag easily.

July 2019 Planning Pages – FREE Printable

The days of June (and summer in general) have been flying by for our family. 

Since mid-April it feels as though life has been a perpetual whirlwind. We’ve had major swim meets, an 18th birthday, family visiting from overseas, a high school graduation, a kiddo flying (and leaving us for a year) to Africa, the start of new jobs for two kids, and summer swim team  starting. 

Whew! In short, we’ve had a lot going on. All good things, but still a lot. 

Laundry has gone unfolded. Many days we are up and out the door early for practice and then don’t return home until late at night. 

And confession: I have done zero planning for the upcoming school year. Honest truth. My goal this month is to declutter the house. A bag a day if possible. Eating following a menu plan, and staying focused on the stuff that really matters (ignoring the squirrels). 

Needless to say, my calendar and to-do lists are part of my sanity at the moment!

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

A Peek Inside My Planner

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!

 

 

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.

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.
