Personal Planner

Looking for something to help you manage your time? You’ve come to the right place. Personal planners are a great way to keep yourself and your family organized.  Whether you’re super busy, or just looking for something to keep track of special dates and appointments, there is a planner out there for you.  Below is a collection of my personal planner printables.  My hope is that you can find a few that will help you put together the planner that will work best for you!  The beautiful part about creating your own planner is that you can print out a few sheets and take them for a test drive and move on to something else if they don’t work for you as well as you hoped.  Find the system that will work for you takes some trail and error, but once you find the right one it will be an invaluable tool that will help you in so many areas of your life.


Lots of free printables to help you create a planner that works for you! There are various daily planner printables, weekly planner printables, printable calenedars and more.

      Hi Kelly, thanks so much for stopping by. There are so many different ways of making printables. I know that many people use programs like Excel and Publisher to create theirs. Personally, I use a combination of Libre Office, GiMP and InkScape. (all of which are free programs!) I hope that helps!
      Thanks again for stopping by! Hope to see you around!

    Thanks so much for these , needed to do a weekly plan for my daughters study schedule. she really liked the design and the colours of course. I think it will inspire her to stick to it!

    • says

      Hi Diana,
      Thanks so much for stopping by. I’m so glad to hear that your daughter likes the design and colors. If you need the planner tweaked at all, let me know. I’m always up for requests! I hope you find it helpful!
      Have a fantastic week!

      • Lisa says

        Hi! I wandered upon your website from pintrest, and I love all these printables! Since I’m a student, I was wondering if you could make some homework based and like a study column would be neat! Thanks for all these free printables I really enjoy them all!

        • says

          Hi Lisa,
          I can totally work on something like that. If you want to send me an email with a more detailed description of what you are looking for, I’ll see what I can work up for you! :-) I’m happy to hear you are liking the printables. I hope you find something that will work for you in the mean time.

          • Erika says

            Thanks for all these amazing printables, I really like them. I am a student, and I was wondering if you had any college based printables with homework/study/notes pages? Also, this might be a dumb question lol but are these available to print on a 5.5-inch x 8.5-inch or am i able to print w/e size i need? I want to try to make my own planner :)


    • says

      Hi Abby,
      I’m actually working on making a half-sized planner, so stay tuned for either the half sized versions of these, or even some new ones!
      I hope you’re having a great week so far.

  2. Deena says

    Your 1/2 page layout for week & month are my absolute favorites! I searched & searched planner forms, but found myself unsatisfied with the boring layouts or intimidated by their gazillion entry lines many have. Your layout fit that colorful view I desired. Thank you so much! I actually look forward to using this pretty planner. =)

    • says

      Hi Deena,

      I am so happy to hear that you like the half size printables, I’m pretty fond of them myself. I hope you enjoy using them as much as I do. If there are any other pages you think would be a great addition to a planner, please let me know and I’ll see if I can whip some up for you. Can I ask, are you using the printables in a mini binder or did you have them bound at a copy center like Staples? The reason I ask is that I’m playing with the spacing on them for binding purposes, and I was just curious how people are using them.

      I hope you’re having a great day!


  3. Lise says

    Love the new half size designs! Are you planning to add more to the collection? I’d love to start using these along with note taking pages, meal planning/grocery lists and monthly goals/tasks. Great job!!

    • says

      Hi Lise,

      Awww, thanks! I love hearing that other like the printables as much as I do, it warms my heart. I am planning on adding more to collection, I was actually just working on a list of possible pages to include. I will add the ones you suggested to the list and hopefully, I will have them ready to go before the end of September.

      Quick question, if it’s not too nosy, are you using the half size ones in a mini binder or do you have them bound, like at copy center like Staples? I’ve been toying with the sizing and layout, and was curious which way they’re used more.

      I hope that you enjoy the printables, and that you are having a fantastic day!


    • says

      Hi Lori,

      You are so very welcome. Simple works well for me too! I have more half sized pages that I’m working on, but they won’t be coming out until November. I’ve got the kitchen beast to tame this month lol

      Thanks so much for taking time to leave a comment,

      Wishing you a fantastic day,


  4. Em says

    Hi there!

    I too love the half size pages. If you did a daily page in the same style it would be perfect. I’m using them in an A5 Arc that I’ve just bought at Staples. So far I’m using the half page month and weekly pages. A matching daily would be great. I’m not a blogger, so don’t really need a ‘blog’ title. Perhaps just ‘work’. Somewhere specific for a meal plan on the daily would be great – but there’s enough space to put it anywhere really. I don’t know if I would ever use that many lines for the time of the day – I tend to use fairly simple to do lists. But I’m going to try it out and see if it works for me. THANKS for all your hard work and look forward to checking back later in the year.

    • says

      Hi Em,

      Thank you so much for taking time to leave a comment. I do have something in the works for a daily half-size planner page, and I will most definitely take your suggestions into account. If you have something more specific in mind, please feel free to email me (alli at scatteredsquirrel dot com) and we can get it all set up just how you want it. I will also see about changing that one title to work instead of blog.

      How are you liking the Arc? Is it holding up well? I’ve been drooling over that system for a while now and have been wondering if it’s durable enough for every day use.

      I hope you’re having a great day!


  5. Kristina says

    Thank you so much for being so generous with your amazing planner printables!!! I look everywhere and have downloaded so many and find that yours are the best and include everything I need! I love the full and half size and can’t wait to get organized with them! I have such a hard time getting things together and keeping it straight and I believe these will make a huge difference!!

    • says

      Hi Kristina,

      You are most welcome. Thank you for taking time to leave such a sweet comment. The printable collection here seems to grow a little more each month, so I hope you’ll come on back. I hope the printables are useful for you.

      Enjoy your weekend.


  6. Sonja says

    Hi! Do you have a daily agenda available in the Day Runner sizes? I am looking for a printable that fits my binder and loved yours! I live in Brazil and cannot find DayRunners here… Thanks!

  7. Tanya says

    I love how bright your pages are! I have been looking for a good half size check register for my planner. Have you ever thought about making something like that?

    • says

      Hi Tanya,

      Thank you so much for such a sweet comment. It totally makes my day to hear, or rather read, that others like the printables. I had not thought of a check register but I think I will add that to my list of printables to make up for the coming year. Might even be able to get it done this month.

      Happy New Year!

  8. giada100 says

    Hi Alli, your work is great and inspired me to design my own weekly planner! :)
    I published it on my blog in a post where I give you credit for the inspiration, if you’d like to have a look at it click on my name.
    Happy New Year!

    • says

      Hi Giada, thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I love that you designed your own weekly planner. How is it working for you? Thank you so much for linking to the blog, that was super sweet of you. I can’t wait to read more of your blog posts!

      Happy New Year!


  9. says

    Hi there, it’s working fine! Probably in the near future I’m gonna need something more detailed, then I’ll download your planners! I love printables because I can stick them around the room and always have them under my nose. 😀
    keep up your nice work!

  10. Caroline says

    Can you do the “Special Dates” in a half page size? Or maybe reformat it so it prints on one full page, but in a way so that it can be cut in half? I love your printables! I have a mini Russell & Hazel binder and am always looking around for cute half page sized printables.

    • says

      Hi Caroline,

      Of course I can do a half size special dates printable. I will add that to my list of ones to whip up. I have a couple of them that I’m getting ready to share later this week, I’m sure I can work this one into the collection too! Thanks so much for the suggestion.

      I hope you’re having a wonderful Monday so far!


    • says

      Hi Jamey,

      I do have dated calendars, but only for 2014 and 2013. Thought the 2013 ones will be disappearing soon. I’ll put the 2014 ones up under the free printables tab, that way they are easier to find. I hope that helps.


  11. Mandy says

    These pages are great…however the bright colours are a migraine trigger for me. Is there anyway to change the colours?
    Thanks for sharing all your tips with us!

    • says

      Hi Mandy,
      Migraines are no fun! If you let me know which ones you want, and what colors you would prefer, I can change up the colors for you. Shoot me an email to all {at} scatteredsquirrel {dot} com and let me know ok? I hope this helps.
      I hope you’re having a great week so far!

  12. kinah says

    Love these! I’m an organizer nut too and generally have 3 different type of organizer pages going in my planner. I make a lot of my own but these are so cute and clean looking I can just use yours!

    • says

      Hi Kinah,

      Oh I’m so happy you like them. I try to keep them as uncluttered as possible, that’s just a personal preference though. I’m happy to hear you like them. I use a combination of ones I’ve made and ones others have made.

      Happy printing!


  13. Tania Davis says

    Hi. I love your planner pages. What program did you use to create these if you don’t mind sharing?


    • says

      Hi Tania,
      Thanks so much, I’m so happy to hear that you like the planners. I am currently using a program called InkScape to create all the printables. InkScape is free, open source, vector drawing program. It means a little more work in some ways, but gives so much more freedom than just an office program, or at least that’s what I think. But really, it all depends on what you’re comfortable with. I know many people who create some amazing planner pages using programs like MS Word and Excel, it’s all a matter of preference. InkScape is a free program, so if you want to check it out, just google it. I hope that helps.
      Take care!

  14. Heather says

    Hi, these are so lovely. I seem to be having a glitch with the “Our Family schedule” printable. What’s the best program to open it with? The wording is all bunched up.


    • says

      Oh no, I’m so sorry it’s gone all wonky, Heather. All the printables are PDF files, so a program like Adobe Reader, or Okular is best to use. If you’re using one of those and it’s still all wonky, you can try downloading it again. If that doesn’t work, let me know and I can email you a copy.

      I hope that helps. Let me know how it goes.


  15. Trina ONeil says

    Thank you so much for sharing your printables Alli. I was googling planner pages and came across yours and I have to say I love them!!!!!!!!! The fact that you have Squirrel is a bonus because I feed squirrels all the time at home. It is like they have me on a schedule. But seriously your printables are very pretty which I love and not to mention simple at the same time. They have everything I need on them but was wondering if you have something like a Daily Agenda one to print out. I didn’t see that one but if not that is ok. I am happy with what I have.

    Thanks for sharing.

  16. says

    i love being able to come here and find anything i need. the colors and designs make them fun. keep up the amazing work that you do. a new and faithful squirrel.

    • says

      I’m thrilled to hear that you like the printables Mindy! Hopefully the new organization helps you find what you’re looking for a little easier than before!

  17. Bianca says

    THANK YOU!!!!! I am starting my teacher planner and this is perfect! im so glad I decided to do a search before I bought one. Your options are wonderful!

    • says

      Hi Bianca,

      I am so happy you found us, and that you like the printables. I hope they come in handy. If you’re in need of dated calendars, check the dated calendars page, I have ones for 2014 and 2015 on there!

      Happy Printing!

  18. Crystal says

    I have spent countless hours looking for the perfect planner and I have finally found it on your website! Thank you. I specifically use the day-per-page printable style. I use it for homeschooling my twins. Would it be possible to get one without the times listed in it? I use the full 8.5×11. The colors and layout are just perfect!

    • says

      Hi Crystal,

      I’m so happy that you find the printables useful and that you are enjoying them. I can absolutely make one without the times on it. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to post it, but stay tuned.

  19. Dana J says

    Love these! I can’t get the weekly full page one to print (the one with Sunday as the week start). It doesn’t pull up a PDFfile only a JPG carousel?

    • says

      Hi Dana, that is so weird. I’ve gone through the links and fixed the one that wasn’t working. Try it now, and let me know if it still does the same thing.

  20. Melanie says

    Thank you for sharing. I just spend 4 hours looking for the perfect horizontal weekly planner. Your pages are not only beautiful, but functional. I can’t wait to use them in the new year. I just might have to ditch my old planner early.

    • says

      Hi Melanie,
      Thank you for stopping by and taking time to leave such a nice comment. It always brighten my day to hear, or rather read, that the printables are helping people. I hope you enjoy them!

  21. Dianne in the desert says

    So I came over here looking for the meal plan on one page and the shopping list on the other half with categories. Found it and then began looking through the other selections. Your various printables are so helpful. I may never have to order from a planner company again. LOL. You see, my main complaint with planner companies is that their planners are geared to people at work. A “Mom” planner is great for those with children at home. I am retired, but I am busy. The typical planner pages don’t work well for me. Thank you so much!

    • says

      Hi Dianne,
      I’m so happy you are liking and enjoying the printables and that you are finding ones that are useful for you. I completely agree with you about the planners that are on the market. It seems like they are all geared towards either professionals or students, and when you do find one that is geared towards us Moms, they don’t come with a refillable option.
      It’s makes my day to know that you’re finding planner pages that fit your life and work for you. Let me know if there’s something you’re looking for and I’ll see if I can make one up for you.
      You are so very welcome. I hope you continue to enjoy the printables.

  22. Donna Harris says

    Love, love, love your printables. I want color for my planner but not too much. The amount you have in your is PERFECT!!

    I use the Arc Jr. I love it! The only thing I could suggest to improve the two page calendars is to put them in a file so you can print them back-to-back. No big deal because I glued them together.

    If you ever make the weekly planner on 5.5 x 8.5 without the lines please email me. I would love to have it.

    • says

      Hi Donna,

      Oh I am so happy to hear that you like the printables. I love color too, but can only have so much in my planners too. It’s nice to know I’m not alone in that. I tried making the the file so they could be printed back to back, but because of how I made them the only way to do it is to go and re design them all, and at this point it is alot of work and I’m stretched for time. However, it is on my list of things to remember for when I make my next calendar.
      As for the weekly planner. Send me an email letting me know which one, and I will be happy to send you one without the lines. :-)


      • Tasha says

        An easy fix for anyone that wants to print back-to-back is print the odd pages first, then turn the stack of pages correctly and print the even pages. This worked perfectly for me.

        Unfortunately, Adobe does not have an odd and even only option…at least I couldn’t find it. Therefore, you have to enter 1,3,5,7 and so on. For the even, enter 2,4,6,8 and so.

        I hope this helps someone!

  23. Ashlie Rich says

    You totally rock!!!!! Seriously, all the colors I love and it took me less than five minutes to find this…the PERFECT planner! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

  24. Crystal says

    Hi! I really love the daily printable! I was wondering if you would be able to send me one that begins a bit earlier in the day? I wake up and have to get started by 6:30. Thanks!!

    • says

      Hi Crystal,

      I can totally do that. Send me an email and let me know which exact one you wanted and I’ll see about getting it out to you as quick as possible. My email is alli (at) scatteredsquirrel (dot) com.


  25. Sue says

    Wow- these forms are so beautiful! They are just what I was looking for. Would you consider making these forms available for smaller planners, a 6.7″ x 3.74″ size, as well?

    • says

      Hi Sue,
      Oh I am so happy to hear, or rather read, that you like the printables. I can see about making them smaller, I’m not sure how well that would work, I would have to play with the layouts but I’ll add it to my list of printables to make. Are there any specific ones you were wanting in that size? What sort of info are you looking to keep in your planner? I would love to hear more about this, if you don’t feel comfortable discussing it in the comments, you can email me at alli {at} scatteredsquirrel {dot} com and we can see what we come up with.


      • Olga says

        Alli, THANK YOU so much for these perfect printables! I’ve spent hours searching for exactly one of the weekly spreads you have. I even tried designing my own in pretty much every MS office program, but mine are not nearly as pleasing to the eye. And it took hours! So thank you for all the time, efforts, and generosity!

        • says

          Hi Olga,
          I’m so pleased that you like the printables. Finding just the right one for you can be tough, I’m really happy you were able to find one here that works for you. I’m always open to requests, so if there is ever something you’re looking for but just not finding let me know, maybe we can work together to make it just right for you!


  26. Dolly Jenkins says

    I love everything on the website. I am looking for a mileage log to add to my planner. I use both the half a sheet and full sheet version.

    • says

      Hi Dolly,

      A mileage log sounds like a great idea. I received your email, expect a reply later this week, and we’ll see what we can come up with :-)

      Best Wishes,

  27. Emily says

    I just found this website! WOW! thank you!!! I just printed off the half sized ones but they are a little too big for the personal size planner, am I doing something wrong?

    • says

      Hi Emily,

      I’m so glad you found us! The half size planner pages are designed to be 5.5″ x 8.5″, so it depends on the size of your planner. I know that the Junior ARC notebooks and mini-binder take this size, but other planners might be smaller. I know that some actual day planners use different sizes so that people are more likely to purchase their refills, so maybe that’s the case. Is it possible to trim them down a little?

      I’m not sure that is much help, without knowing which planner you’re tying to fit them it, I’m not sure what advice to offer.

      Best Wishes,


  28. Alexa says

    Thank you so much for these, they are just what I wanted, and I can’t wait to print them out! I would like to echo one of the earlier comments in asking for pages that are printable back-to-back. I would like to make a DIY planner and print these out with weekly notes in between, so I’m going to try and cut and paste them as images to be able to print them back-to-back in the right order. Just something to think about for the next round. But, regardless, thank you so so so so so much for these, I love the designs, the colors, the diversity. Mostly, though, thank you so much for making these freely available!

    • says

      Hi Alexa,

      Aww, thanks so much. I am working on a few ideas for printing back to back, it’s harder with the half-size printables, but I am working on it.

      Thanks again for your kind words.

      Best Wishes,


  29. Shavontae says

    Hi. As I was reading through the comments, I saw that you said that you were working on the half sizes. Have you completed those yet? Or can you explain how to print on half size?

    This printables are awesome!!! Thanks for sharing.

    • says

      Hi Shavontae,

      I shared the half-size version of many of these in my 31 Days 31 Printables series. I was a little slow getting them added to the galleries on this page. They are all in there now, I hope that helps :-)

  30. says

    i just wanted to say that i LOVE these. i went out on a limb to google a planner that i can print out for work, and as a bonus these are awesomely pretty as well so i wont need to decorate them. Thanks so much!

    • says

      Hi Nicki,

      Aww, thanks! I’m so happy to hear that you find the printables pretty. The first time I put together my own planner was life changing, in small ways sure, but life changing none the less. I wish you success in your planner project!

  31. Diane says

    Do you happen to have the Week1.pdf available in a portrait 2 page version? I’ve been scouring the internet for one and have yet to find it. Thanks so much for pulling these together for the rest of us who are not as tech savvy to make our own! Love these!

  32. ariuka says

    Greetings from Mongolia! It is such a shame that 2014 doesn’t have ‘Single and Half size’ like 2015’s But i am grateful that you made into 2015’s which i will be using next year!
    Keep doing the work diligently! :)

    • says

      Hi Ariku,

      Welcome! I’ve never been to Mongolia but I hear that it is a beautiful part of the world. The 2014 absolutely does ahve a single page half-size. It shows up as two months on one page, just simply cut the page in half and you have your single, half-size. I hope that helps.

  33. Sarah T. says

    ThAnK yOu for these! They really are lovely, and more functional than most I’ve found. You’re amazing, and so generous to share with the world :). One question ~ do you happen to have the Weekly Two Page Spread in a format that could be made bigger? I like to print it out and use it just as it (not in a small binder), and a bit bigger would make it perfect (for me)! If not, no prob, I’ve still found it super useful, and cute :) Thanks!

    • says

      Hi Sarah,

      Thank you so much for you kind words. I don’t currently have the weekly 2 page spread in a larger size. I made that one as the half-size version one of the full-size single page weekly planner. I do have the Weekly to-Do’s that can be use with a single page weekly one, if that helps? I will most certainly look into making that one full size though, it seems like it would work well.

  34. Vicki says

    These are really great. I can’t imagine the amount of work you put into these! I just wish the monthly pages had lines :(. I need a two page half size for my planner, but I don’t think I can use one without the lines.

  35. Emily says

    Thank you so much for making these available to us! I love them!!! I have printed out the 2015 monthly planner pages with success. I have printed them at 80% to fit my compact planner, it works perfectly!However, I have tried printing the “Half-sized daily planner or task list” and the colors are so light I can hardly see it. Is there any way to darken it? I love this task list and haven’t been able to find anything else that is similar. I would LOVE to be able to use it.
    Thanks again!!!

    • says

      Hi Emily,

      I don’t know why that one is printing too light for you. Usually the colours darken when printed. You could try playing with the colour setting on your printer. I know when I print some things in ‘draft’ mode they print lighter. If you have no luck with that, let me know and I’ll see if I can darken them up for you.

  36. says

    Thank you so much for making these and rescuing my beloved discbound planner from a date with the garbage can! I searched desperately for something to replace the original Martha Stewart calendar pages and low and behold I found yours which are even better.

    • says

      Hi Ashley,

      WOW! Thanks so much for taking time leave a comment, I’m thrilled you like my calendars better than the Martha Stewart ones, that is high praise indeed. I hope you have fun find printables and making your planner. I love my disc bound books, I don’t know what I ever did before having them. :-)

  37. Thania says

    OMG! thank you for making this available for us to use. i want to make my own planner for work this year and this is exactly what i was looking for. very colorful

    • says

      Hi Thania,

      You are so very welcome. I’m happy to hear that you like the printables. :-) I hope you find a few (or more) that will help you set your planner up just right for you. If you need something you can’t find, let me know. I do take requests, if you email me what you need I can work with you to help tailor it to suit your needs.

      Happy Holidays

  38. Amber says

    I was tired of trying to find the “perfect planner” for my unorganized organized brain so I finally decided to make my own with various printables and self-made sheets etc and bind them. I started to look for a few basic printables I could use or look at and BAM! Up came your site and almost every page I could want, how I need it, and prettier than I could make it!!! I am so thrilled I found this! Bless you for your hard work and talent!

    • says

      Hi Amber,

      I’m so glad you found my site. I’m so happy to hear that you like the printables, and I hope you find some that will be useful for you!

      Happy Holidays!

  39. Mariam Rahman says

    I LOVE your calendars, but is there anyway to customize the colors, my planner cover is pink so…
    Thanks for the templates!

    • says

      Hi Mariam,

      At the moment there isn’t a way to customize the colours, however I am always open to suggestions. If you would like, send me an email and if possible include a picture with the shade of pink you were wanting and I’ll see about adding it to my reader request list if you would like.

      I am so happy to hear that you like the printables. :-)

  40. Robin Rice says

    Thank you for sharing these printables! I accidentally ran across your blog as I was searching for a few ideas to make my own planner pages. You have saved me SO much time!! xo!

      Hi Robin,

      I’m glad I was able to save you some time. Making your pages can take some time, but sometimes it’s best way to get what you need. I’m happy to hear that some of mine ended up helping you out. Enjoy!

  41. Brooke Rohleder says

    I have spent my entire two weeks vacation from teaching by creating my own 3 ringed binder personal and work planner. By far, your printables are the best I have found. Thank you for your generosity to those of us who must depend on computer talents such as yours.

    • says

      Hi Brooke,

      You are most welcome, I’m happy that you found some printables to use in your planner. Teaching is a tough job, I can only imagine all the things you need to keep track of for work, then to add all the personal stuff in on top of that must take some careful thought and planning.

      I hope that you have a wonderful year!

  42. says

    Your printables are beautiful and perfect for what I need. Thank you so much for sharing. The weekly to do page seems to print out very light. Is there anyway that I can darken it up a bit. Thanks so much for your kindness and helpfulness.

    • says

      Hi Elaine,

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I’m so happy that you like the printables. I’m working on darkening some of them up, I just printed a whole bunch myself in greyscale and realized that they need a little more oomph to make them show up. :-) Stay tuned, I’m not sure when I’ll have them ready to be shared. I’m frantically trying to get all caught up after my computer died the other day. :-( But they are in the works.

      • Tami says

        I recently found your printables, and absolutely love them – they have just the layout I was looking for! I was reading the comments for suggestions about darkening them up. My eyes are old! I really like the idea of the half size, but being small and light print, I have a hard time seeing it. Bold, darker colors would be awesome.

        If you ever think about making these in another color palette, I love the bolder colors in this image – – especially the darker orange, green and purple.

        Thank you for providing these – and being so responsive to the comments!

        • says

          Hi Tami,
          I am working on a plan to darken them up a bit. Not sure how it’s going to work just yet, but I’m hoping to start working on them soon. Thank you so much for including a link to a photo. I will most definitely check it out and see what I can do.

  43. Susan Metz says

    These are the BEST half-page monthly printables. So happy about the colors. Will look forward to more printables, and for 2016.

    • says

      Hi Suzan,

      I’m so happy that you like the printables and are finding some that will work for. As crazy as it sounds, I’ve already started making plans for the 2016 ones. Enjoy your printables.

  44. Lisa says

    I just LOVE this. I was wondering if you had an address book to go with it? I’m using the Green, Blue, Purple scheme.

  45. Marie says

    When I saw the title of your blog- Scattered Squirrel- I thought to myself does this girl have -look there’s a squirrel!- ADD too? I am 47 and 2 years ago found out I have had ADHD all my life. People just thought I was pretty smart, had endless energy and the attention span of a goldfish. I homeschooled my children by using schedules and lists for everything. Now my children are grown and I often can’t stay focused on simple tasks- household and personal- that people take for granted. Calendars, charts and checklists have become the tools for me to adopt a basic routine again. Your printables are so incredible, simple and pleasing to the eye, thank you! I have searched over 2 weeks online to find some sort of planner that would help me survive morning to night. Thanks to you I have found it. Have you ever had the need to have a chart/checklist for a wellness routine? You are the most wonderful squirrel, I would hardly call scattered. :) Thank you so much for your generosity.

    • says

      Hi Marie,

      Welcome to the craziness! :-) Yes, I do have ADD, though I prefer to just refer to it as being a scatter-brain. It’s my way of embracing that side of me on my own terms, and in no way is meant to undermine the seriousness or the challenges that having ADD/ADHD present.
      Wow, I have to say, your comment about homeschooling your kids touched a part of my heart. We considered homeschooling our boys, and though my oldest doesn’t want it, my youngest has been asking about it more and more. I have always said that I would do it in a heart beat if it was the best option for them, but I’ve always been terrified that I would fail them miserably if we had to do that, because my ADD makes it so hard for me to stay on tasks and get things done in a reasonable amount of time. It’s heartwarming to know that others have done it with success. :-) Thank you for sharing that with me.
      I’m so happy to hear that you found some printables that you like and that you think will work for you. If you ever have any questions or just want to chat, don’t hesitate to get in touch!

  46. Jana McCormick says

    Hi there! I love your printables! I’m curious though, if I’m just blind or if you really don’t have a full page daily agenda page? I would love to pair it with a printable of my own, to combine into a day on two pages for myself. Is there anyway a full page will come around?

    • says

      Hi Jana,
      You know, after reading your comment I had to go and look. The closest I have to a full size daily agenda is the full size day planners, which is so weird, I was pretty sure I had a full-size version of that one. I’ve added it to my list for reader requests, I’ll try to get it out in February’s feature post. :-)

      • Jana McCormick says

        Thanks I really appreciate it! It comes in really handy when I color in my unavailable times during the day, so I can see how much time I have left to fill in other tasks or schedule more work.

        Thank you for all the things you do!

  47. Laura says

    Do you make the weekly 1 printable without the time already listed? I was wondering so I could fill in my own times.

    Thank you! I love your stuff!

    • says

      Hi Laura,
      You know I thought I did, but it was the daily planner that I did that on. I’ve added that to my list of printables for the reader request, I’ll try to have it available for February’s feature post. :-)

  48. Cali says

    I just downloaded the half sheet calendar. I LOVE the colors and designs you used! Any plans for health/fitness trackers in the future?

    • says

      Hi Cali,

      I have health/fitness printables on my list of ones to make. I’m hoping to get some ready to go in March, if not a little earlier. Stay tuned! I’m so happy that you’re liking the half-size calendars. :-)

  49. says

    Hi Alli,
    I wanted to say a huge thank you to you!! I am a mom, part time professor, a full grad student working on my doctorate, just started a non profit and am a therapist ( not at all trying to brag…just showing proof that I am probably insane!) and I have tried planner after planner to try and map out the stuff that I am trying to juggle and at the end of each week…it is an epic fail!! Coming across your site and your blog about what a planner is to each person really hit the nail on the head as it forced me to figure out what exactly I want and what I don’t want in a planner as well as literally what it means to! I currently feel a sense of relief as I have printed up different sections of your printables and made a planner that is simple, effective and yet covers pretty much everything I need and best of yet totally fits how I use a planner!
    So thank you, thank you for being the type of person that cares about the well being and mental stability ;p of random strangers!!!

    • says

      Hi Lara,
      Wow! You are living a full and busy life. I am so happy that you found some resources and printables to help you create a planner that is working for you. It can be hard when conventional concepts just don’t work for us how we need them too. It’s taken me a few years to figure it all out, and I’m so happy that by sharing my ideas I was able to help you even a little bit. I hope your planner continues to work well for you. :-)
      Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me such a nice comment.

  50. Dianne in the desert says

    I have found, after more than 60 years of life as an adult, that how I use a planner and what I do with my planner is going to change depending on who else is involved and what stage of life I am in at any given time.

    When there are young children in the home, one is tracking the things that they are involved in, of course, just to make sure that they get where they need to be when they need to be there. As the children grow up, they begin dealing with their own appointments and only involve the parents when they need to.

    Now, the children are grown, so it is just hubby and I at home. My planner is a bit lacking all of the notes that were there, but it is still filled with things that I want or need to get done. My planner makes it possible to deal with my life as it is at any given point.

    In the process of making all of those changes, my inserts have changed drastically, but the purpose in using the planner has not. Could I get along without a planner? Sure! But I don’t want to and that is what is important. People do what people want to do, or not, as they choose.

    Your inserts, Alli, have made it possible for my planning to change in a reasonable and happy way. I still get to do what needs to be done and my inserts are so pretty that I thoroughly enjoy working with the planner each day.

    Thanks a million! You are the best!

    • says

      Awww Dianne, thank you so much for your sweet words. I’m so happy that you’re finding the printables helpful.
      You are absolutely right, people will do what they want, or not. For some, planners just don’t work, and for others they are as necessary as breathing.

  51. Larae says

    Wow! Just what I was looking for! Thanks so very much, Alli! I found you through a Pin and am thrilled!! CANNOT WAIT to explore your entire site. Love these organizer pages. THANKS!

    • says

      Hi Larae,
      Welcome to my little happy place. I’m so happy you found us. I hope you have a ton of fun exploring all the fun stuff we have here. And I hope to ‘see’ you again!

  52. says

    OMG! These are amazing! And you gave us options. I’m so grateful. You’re so generous to share these at no cost. They are elegant and fun! Thank you!

    • says

      I’m so happy you like them. I enjoy making printables, and love to share. I hope you find some that you like and that will work for you in your planner.

  53. Nicole Zitnik says

    Thank you so much for the printables. I love them. I use a planner for everything in my life also as a journal. I love putting pen to paper. I love having an 18 month calendar. I like to have the years in different colors. I was wondering if you could do a daily page with the rainbow colors. And also if you can do a 2016 year at a glance, PLEASE. I want to use the purple and blue for 2015 and the rainbow for 2016. I hate to even ask but that will make this my most perfect planner ever. I want to take to staples to have them spiral bind it and laminate front and back covers. Thank you for sharing all of your printables with all the planner lovers of the world.

    • says

      Hi Nicole,

      Oh I’m so happy to hear that you like the printables. I am working on the 2016 calendars and I’ll see about getting the year at a glance out soon. :-) I can’t make any promises about the rainbow part, as I’m working with a new colour scheme for next year, but I’ll see what I can do. I will most definitely add a daily page in rainbow colours to my list of reader request printables to make. I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get that made and shared, but it will be shared at some point. :-)

  54. Jessica says

    OMG!!!! I LOVE THEM ALL!!! This is exactly what I needed!!! They have helped me get myself organized. Thank you so much!!!!

  55. Toni Moore says

    These planner pages are awesome and I love that you use bright colors! I’m new to planning/organizing so the ability to customize and change as I go along is perfect until I know exactly what I need. Thanks so much for sharing your hard work. Can you do a saturday/sunday daily plan on one page. I am currently using the half daily planner and I just turn the planner to the side. It’s not terribly inconvenient but it would be nice.

    • says

      Hi Toni,
      Thank you so much for taking time to leave a comment. I’m so happy to hear that you like the printables and are finding them useful. So, you’re looking for a daily printable that has the whole weekend on one page? I can look into doing something like. Any particular one you would like me to use? And is there anything particular you want to see on the weekend page?

      • Toni Moore says

        I just read your ‘about me’ and the slightly scatter-brained clutterbug description fits me so well. Not so sure about the recovery just yet but I’m getting better at it.

        The pages are great. My co-worker shared your site with me. And now I’m putting together a half-size arc planner for my sister so the categories seem to be pretty versatile.. I just have a couple requests.

        1. one page weekend in portrait for full size maybe sat on top sun on the bottom and for half size they could be side by side?
        2.monthly pages half size in portrait
        3. I’m using the weekly task/todo as a divider and I’m printing it on cardstock for durability when moving from day to day. I’m thinking it would be nice if it were half or even a third the size of a page lengthwise.

        It’s great that you consider other ideas and take the time to respond to individual posts.

          hi, your works are very useful. i like that daily planner printables. but, i need a “special” daily planner that covers my entire ideas. how can i recieve your help. can u help me…

          • says

            Hi Abhijith,
            I’m happy to hear that you like the printables. What sort of things are you looking for on a daily planner? I have a couple daily planners that have lots of room for planning different things, but I’m always willing to try to tweak things.

    Hi, Alli. Nice to see your blog. Thank you for free printable daily planner you’ve shared. So much colorful and I do love it. I hope they all will help me from now on. By the way, what kind of paper do you recommend to print out them?
    *Big hug from Malang Indonesia

  57. Ela says

    Hi Alli,
    I found your printables through pinterest. Let me congratulate and thank you for them . I’m using week on 2 pages and it is perfect. The layout, the colors are awesome. I’m printing them on one side of the paper as when I try to print twO sided, it messes the weekly lay out- .Can you help me with this . Many thanks.

  58. ReniMo says

    I wanted to thank you for sharing all ur great printables and ideas with me!! Looking forward to getting started on my binders!!!!

  59. Lori Kolas says

    Hi Alli! I’m just beginning my journey to an organized life (LOL). After unsuccessfully searching stores for a planner with pages and sections to fit my needs, I discovered the world of DIY Planners on Pinterest. This discovery lead me to more frustration. Initially I could not find where to acquire the supplies necessary. Amazon to the rescue! Armed with a new computer (the hair loss from pulling most of it out trying to navigate Windows 8.), a subscription for Microsoft Office, half size paper, markers, pens and all my stamping and paper supplies, I started to try to design my own. Being a pretty crafty girl, I assumed it wouldn’t be too complicate… I have never been so WRONG! I was about to surrender, which I hardly do, when I found YOU… There aren’t enough words to express my gratitude for You, your printables and your generosity! I hafe just finished downloading almost your entire site and the printer is warming up… I almost feel selfish asking after everything you already give but you and countless others my benefit from my idea so here goes… Initially I wasvgoing to include a Project Planning section in my planner. As it evolves, I’m beginning to think it needs to be it’s own binder. The day I moved into my home I went into labor with my 3rd surprise bonus baby. You can imagine the list of projects and To Do’s haunting my every thought. Do you have a Project Planner? Would you be willing to collaborate on creating one? I would love to get some guidance, insight or give you my thoughts and watch you work your magic. Let me know your thoughts if you would and THANK YOU for all you do! Sincerely, A Very Dopey Mom of 3, Lori

    • says

      Hi Sammi,

      I’m toying with a few ideas about how to do just that. :-) Unfortunately, I won’t know for sure until later on this year. But as of right now, yes I have some plans to be updating some of the daily and weekly pages to match the new 2016 colours.

  60. JoAnn Walkenhorst says

    Evidently I’m the dumbest person in the world. All I want to do is print the planner but I see nothing that indicates what I should do to print.

    • says

      Hi JoAnn,
      It can be a little confusing, and I apologize for that. As you scroll down page, you’ll see that the printables are organized into galleries. Simply click on the picture of the ones you want. It will open the PDF version of the printable and you can choose to save or print it right from your browser. Depending on your browser, you might instead get a pop up dialog box asking where you would like to save the file too. I hope that helps. If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to ask. :-)

  61. Tatiana.J says

    Hi! These are awesome, I just was wondering what size are the half daily planners when you print them out?
    Thank you!

    • says

      Hi Tatiana
      Thanks! The half-size printables are all two pages per one sheet of letter size paper. Cut in half and you end up with pages that are 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches. I hope that helps. :-)

  62. Cheska says

    Hi Alli

    Thanks for these great printables. Just that where I was looking for. Now I only have to go to the copy shop to print en cover it.

    Many many thanks from Germany.


  63. Tonyadee Shuey says

    This site is awesome. I just found it when I was looking for daily planners that I could print myself. Wow, you have really put in a lot of work here. Its nice to see that there is someone out there looking out for those of us, who are unorganized, lol. So THANKS for your hard work. This site rocks.

  64. Penny says

    I’ve only just got into planners, and haven’t even got my own yet, but your blog is such an amazing resource and I’m definitely going to make use of all the free printables!! I have a query – I absolutely love the weekly 2 page planner (the one with meals) but I’m not a family! I could cover over this and write something of my own, but I wonder if this could be altered slightly? Thank you so much 😀

    • Penny says

      I’ve got something to add! I’ve had a look at printing costs and it seems like black and white is the only viable thing for me, at least for the weekly planner – I feel like I’ve seen some things in black and white on here, but is it possible to have it black and white but with no grayscale? I hope this makes sense – I’m happy to do it myself with a couple of pointers :)

      • says

        Hi Penny,
        I have shared a couple black and white printables but not many. At this point grey scale is the only option. I am working on making some more black and white versions of the printables though, I’m just not sure when I’ll have them ready to be shared.

  65. Michelle says

    Your planner pages are just awesome. I am currently working on putting together a planner to try to help me organize. I’m going to use a lot of your pages because I just love them! I’m using the half size pages. The daily planner page layouts are wonderful, but they print up too light. Would you be able to tweak them and darken the colors a bit? Thank you so much for sharing these!

  66. Grainne says

    Your planners are the best I have found anywhere! (and I have been looking for ages!!!!) Like a couple of people before me have posted, my printer only prints black and white and all of your documents print too light! I have changed the settings on my printer to the darkest settings but still the lighter sections are unreadable. If you could make a B/W version where everything was just black text/lines, it would print out beautifully! Until then, I must sigh wistfully and drool over your beautiful planner pages and to-do lists! Thanks so much for posting these….can’t wait to actually use them!

    • says

      Hi Grainne,
      I’m working on black and white and darker colour options. I can only print black and white too, and I completely understand the too light part.

  67. Megan says

    Just found the 2016 half size printable calendars on Pinterest, and I absolutely love them. I would love to include “blank our week half-size” to my binder but would love for it to be in the 2016 color scheme. Any chance that is an option?
    Thanks Megan

    • says

      Hi Megan, I do have some plans to update some of the printables with the 2016 colours. I’m not sure when I’ll be sharing them yet, but I do know I will have them up before 2016 gets here. I’m aiming for no later than October right now.

  68. Sarah says

    thank you so much. I have been looking for something for my planner for a few days now n your design n style is just what I was looking for.

  69. Domiziana Salimbeni says

    Hi! very nice planners! Will you make the 2016 monthly in pastel too? Now I’m using the 2015 and I love it! I hope you’ll do the 2016! :)

    • says

      I get asked this question a lot and I’ve thought about it quite a bit, and sadly, no I will not be making a second version of the 2016 calendar. I do have blank calendars in the 2015 colours, if that helps. I also offer customization now, if you want to check that out.

    • says

      Hi Kimmi,

      I have a half-size special dates one, I guess it didn’t get added into the galleries. I’ll get it added later on today so it’s easy to find.

  70. Lisa Shah says

    I was wondering if you could make a contacts page for the personal planners. I would really like to have one. Please and thank you in advance.

    P.S. Great job on your printables. They will really help me keep on track with college homework so I don’t get behind.

  71. Arielle says

    Hi ! I LOOOVE your planner inserts, they are just amazing ! Thank you for the amazing work you’ve done !
    I was just wondering : do you have inserts for addresses/contacts ? I would love to see that ! I already had one in my uncostumized planner but now it looks just weird with all the new theme going on thanks to your inserts !

    • says

      I do have address/contact printables in half-size format. I have full-size ones on my list of Reader Request, and those will be coming out later on this year.

  72. Keyonna says

    When you say “half size,” are you referring to A5 printing, or A6? I have a Van Der Spek A5 planner and I love your monthly printout and would love to add it to my planner to separate my months, but I just want to make sure that I am printing out the right size.


    • says

      The closet size to my half-size ones would be A5. My half-size ones are designed to fit two printable per letter size sheet of paper. That way anyone who would like them just needs to print and cut them in half to use them.

  73. Dianne in the desert says

    Yes, the pages show as “Half” size are a half sheet of US letter sized paper.

    An A5 page is about 1/3 inch narrower from the rings outward.

  74. JoAnn Walkenhorst says

    I really like all your printables–nice variety. However I use the smaller 3 3/4 x 6 3/4 size planner. Any plans for making printables that fit that size?

    • says

      Hi JoAnn,
      Thank you so much. At this time I don’t have plans for making smaller planner printables, but I am looking into it, so that might change. If I do decided to give them a whirl, it won’t be until later this year. :-) Sorry I’m not more help.

  75. xin yi says

    Thank you so much for the printables!
    they are a great help to my DIY planner as I’m a quite fussy person when it comes to organizing.
    Really greatful for sharing your efforts with all of us! (:

  76. April says

    I am super scattered too and stuck in transition to our new home — so I can’t even TRY to get organized and it’s making me crazy (well more crazy than normal). I am sitting here in tears because I am so thankful I came across your site. This is so perfect. I have purchased countless planners, and even tried to make my own, and they never really work for what I need. I am thinking I could print out a daily and weekly page for each one of my four kids in addition to a master for myself and that would be really be helpful for our family. Thank you so so SO ssssooooo much for sharing all these templates.

    • says

      Awww, I’m so glad that you found us! Moving is tough, when you’re super scattered (like I am on most days) it can feel really overwhelming. I hope you find some printables here that help make life a little less chaotic for you!

  77. Sarah says

    Thank you *so* much for sharing these! I’m planning for our new school year, and your printables are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!!! I’m looking forward to checking out the rest of your site! Enjoy your summer!

  78. naureen says

    I too have looked over so many planners and I end up at your site admiring these free printables :-) I must say, this is an incredible incredible project. And I’m more impressed that you’ve made them free. Bless your heart.

    So I’m trying to figure out how to work with the half page ones. Which binder types would these half page ones fit into? Or which binder size?

    I’d love to see how you or others have used them to set up their own planners.

    • says

      Hi Naureen,

      As Dianne mentioned below the half-size planners fit the mini binders or arc junior books, you want something that will use 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 pages. Once you’ve printed them, cut them in half and you’re good to go. I hope that helps.

  79. Dianne in the desert says

    The half size pages would fit in binder using “half letter sheet” or “A5″ planners.

    The printables are in PDF format, so if you open them in Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can choose the printing option that works best for you.

    Full page forms can also be printed to half size, but you may not get the edges where you want them.

    Hope that helps!

  82. Nikki says

    A HUGE Thank you for all your fantastic work. Like many others who have left comments, I’ve been so disheartened trying to find the right calendar/planner that I also tried ( and failed miserably ) to make my own. Thanks to you I can now quit pulling my hair out in frustration and get down to planning and enjoying the rest of the year.
    Having said that there is still one calendar I’m still trying to find – A Gardening calendar. Most of it would be filled in by the gardener – blank spaces to fill in plant names, a section for date sown ( can use colour coding to show whether its sown in or out doors ), a section for germination,potting out, harvesting ( possibly with a option for yield as well as date ) and notes.
    There’s loads available for veg gardening – the template on most is great but I’m growing flowers as well as veg and they dont give the option of adding my own plants to their current list.
    Is this something you may consider looking into?, there would be lots of grateful Gardeners if you did.
    Many Thanks and keep up with your STUNNINGLY simple, yet beautifully eloquent work.
