My Planner

I don't remember ever , EVER using so many notes and reminders to myself in all my life!! In the last two years I have to write everything !! down or it will slip my mind completely. I always use to keep everything I had to do stored in my pea brain , but nope not anymore.. I have a notebook for my car I hang up on the vent for all the stops I have to make..My computer screen is bordered with tiny posty notes..and I have a big dry erase board on my refrigerator.  I think I remember hehehe, no pun there, that reading about as you grow older your brain cells die off. I'm IN BIG TROUBLE!! I had very few to start with!!!eeeks

But anyways I have always loved office supplies!!! planners, paper products and pens, post it notes,, etc. I'm so glad my sister works at the Staples warehouse!!!
Last year I made my own planner instead of buying the expensive refills.. one year I actually just bought a notebook and wrote it page by page, it got boring.. or someone would grab the notebook and use it for their own liking.

I made my own pages this year. I used a few different one's from blogs this past year. I like the half size planner the best. And I like to refill and move the pages if I wanted to. Staples has the half size binders and they are very durable.
Here are the pages I made..
 I was wondering if anyone would like a copy of these pages to use?? I print them out two on one full page then flip the page and print two of the second page , then I cut the middles. Make sense? I can email the pages to you if you like!! I  made these using Photoscape!!! The lines look like stitches, you can't see it well here. And don't look at the mistake I made , I punched holes on the wrong sides.. oh dear.

 See my last year pages?? I have the pocket dividers in the back and tabs inside as well.
I add a memo clip on the top of this weeks page. This is a page from last year I had been using. You can view about that one HERE from my blog. There are links to download those too if wanted from Sofiasworld.

You can still have a chance to win my planner I made!!! well the cover for the planner I made.. but it comes with a store bought planner!  Go RIGHT HERE!!! for my give away!!
Parting words.. my son was driving home from work a few mornings ago and he was looking out at a field of wild turkeys. I cringe when I see those birds! Word of experience here!! haha..but one decided they had to comment suicide flying right into his windshield! SPLAT. yep he was mad. 250$ worth of damage to his windshield.
I guess that turkey was wanting to go out of style instead of in the oven!


  1. I downloaded Photoscape and was playing around with it a little this morning!!! I gave one of the cats some long flowing hair and glasses hehehe!!! I wonder if I would be more organized if I used a planner...hmmmmm

  2. You're so good for making your own planner pages! Id like to make my own calendar. I'm glad your son is okay! Fancy having a turkey run into you!

  3. Hi!
    I know you posted this a few years back but I LOVE what you did! You mention that if I comment, you'll email me a copy of the half paged version. Can you do that please? My email is

    I started a blog about my journey to financial freedom. Im doing a year long spending freeze where I only pay for necessities in order to pay off student loans. Check it out if youre interested. Being able to make my own planner would save me money for sure!
