My "created from scratch" planner :)

I love my planner!  I made it a few weeks ago, and it has taken me forever to finally get the pictures up.  I have been trying to blog more, so you can see the whole post about it, with more close-up pictures here:

http://journeythroughlove.blogspot.com/2011/09/my-homeschool-planner.html

Here is the general idea :)  It looks small, but it is a normal 8.5x11 size

(I laminated scrapbook paper for the cover)

Monthly calendar, with monthly notes

Monday through Wednesday on the left, Thurs/Fri with priorities, menu and weekend activities on the right.  


Share your planner!  I'm an organization junkie :)

hahaha boobah's planners!   That's too funny :)  Planners are a dime a dozen on the internet, I just never could find one that fit me.  Thanks girls, I'm glad you like it.  I enjoyed making it.

 I cant find one I like either. I have looked for weeks now. I think that is so awesome you now have one to make totaly your own. Did you have it binded ect at a store? How much would you guestimate total cost was?

OK if anyone sees a planner that: a 2page spread monthly, 2 page spread weekly without times, subject, or lines, notes section seperate..and for cyring out loud who needs a freakin address book in every planner/calendar they use. For me I use my cell phone and I have 1 address book that I dont feel like duplicating nor think all friends and family want there info carried everywhere I go. WHEW sorry about that this planner thing has been eating away at me.

I acually got a binder cheap at office depot.com if you go to my blog and click on past stories, I did a whole review of it. I love it. So paper, 2 laminating sheets, ink, and the cost of one spine, that is it!

The binder has already paid for itself. We make our own nature journals, reading logs, planners, notebooks, drawing pads, etc. And someone suggested I make custom note/drawing pads for my nieces and nephews for Christmas so I am all over that!

That sounds fairly simple, play around in word and use shapes and text boxes! I bet you could do it!

Btw, I did use white card stock, so the print on the other side wouldnt show through. I tried on copy paper and you could see through. That would drive me bonkers.
