I once paid $80 for a yearly planner that I barely used.
I know, I gag just thinking about it.
It was highly rated and recommended by a friend and came in all these adorable covers. I was sold with claims of it being so well-made and how the design would make me so much more productive.
The planner ended up being so big and heavy, I couldn’t fit it in any normal sized bag, so the monstrosity just sat on my kitchen counter leering at me with blank pages full of absolutely nothing.
Then, just a few months into the year, the spiral binding bent and I couldn’t get it to go back, so my $80 planner wouldn’t fully close.
By the end of the year, it was a relief to throw that gigantic reminder of wasted money in the trash.
Since then, I have never bought a fancy planner, realizing I always do better with something much simpler.
The Daily Planner Printable:
When I thought about what I actually needed it was pretty simple. Just a basic time organizer for appointments and then some checklists that I usually end up chicken-scratching on various sheets of paper around the house.
I also combined a small daily meal planner, although you can find a more extensive meal planner and grocery shopping printable here for free, too.
Plus, I really love a good motivating quote, so there is space at the top for the quote I am crushing on most. Check out my post on 47 girl power quotes to get some ideas to use.
Now, I have a planner with exactly what I need and none of what I don’t and it costs me pennies to print it.
How To Use the Daily Planner Printable:
All you have to do is print and go with this bad boy.
Or, you can send the file to your local print shop and have them print and spiral bind 100 of them or so, copying them back to back for no wasted paper.
That’ll give you a ton of daily planners for a super affordable price.
Or, print a week’s worth at a time at home, staple or paper clip them together, and forget having to lug around some gigantic planner.

If you aren’t interested in printing this one for free – my second favorite is The Happy Planner. It’s the one I get from Staples for under $30.
