Goodbye From Planner Fun

I've been blogging for a long time.  I started in 2001 blogging about my pregnancy at a website called Xanga.  My son will be 18 in December!  I've done Mommy blogs, weight loss blogs, homeschool blogs...I've always loved creating things on the Internet.

I am still very much into creating inserts, but mostly for myself these days.  I have never sold my inserts because I didn't want my time to be dictated to me by a shop, however, I did expect some sort of interaction between myself and my readers and that has never really been there, so I am moving on towards other things.  I too am guilty of downloading freebies without even a "good job" or "thanks," so I understand how it happens.

I probably will never leave the blogging world completely.  This blog will remain with all the free inserts I have made over the years.  If I don't renew my domain in March, the url will change to

Graph Paper, Gratitude List, and a Folded Monthly Tracker - FREE!

Today I am sharing with you a couple of inserts I have made recently.  I started out with a Michael's Recollections binder in personal size, BUT their inserts are 4 x 6.75 instead of 3.75 x 6.75, so I have continued to use that size (since I make all my own anyway).  There is only a .25" difference between the two so I edited each file to include the standard personal size, below.

Future Planning Insert {FREE}

My current planner has smaller rings so I don't carry a full 12 months.  So, how do I handle making appointments that go beyond the three months that are in my planner?  I use the future planning insert that you can download below.  I keep it directly behind the last month in my planner and if I need to add an appointment and I don't have the month available, I will write it on that insert.

When it is time to change out my monthly pages, I use that sheet to fill in the dates I need to remember.  Simple yet effective!

Changing Things Up!

New free inserts will be added to this blog from time to time but I will no longer maintain an index. The best way to not miss an insert is to either subscribe to my blog and get a notification when a new insert is posted, or to check the sidebar.  From this point on I will put a label on all new inserts.  Thanks for visiting.

Be sure to check out "Your Insert Wish List" aka "how requesting a free insert works"!

Because this new system works better for me, I will no longer be updating my  "Planner Fun Uploads" Facebook page, but will keep it open in case there are some inserts posted you want to access, or if you want to chat about inserts!  If you see spam, please report the post and I'll get on it.

A5 Undated Week on Two Pages

A reader wrote me asking how she could make one of my inserts print A5 size.  It was designed on a letter size page and since it was undated for classic size, it could be printed on both sides and cut down the middle.

There might have been an easier way, but since I didn't have the original size, I imported the pdf into my desktop publishing program and made two different sheets in A5 size.

All of that to say this:  if you are interested in an undated, week on 2 pages insert in A5, take a look here.

Homeschoolers - Free Academic Year At a Glance!

Side Note:  School Planning happened and I wasn't able to keep up with my 31 Days of Planner Fun.  Sorry guys, I really thought I would be able to!  Check out the 31 Days of Planner Fun in the sidebar to see previous year's series.  Who knows - maybe I'll be able to finish it, so check back.

Speaking of school planning, I am knee deep!  Today I needed a year at a glance page for my attendance and threw this one together.  This freebie has two year at a glance calendars printed on letter-sized paper.  It starts on August 2018 with a Sunday start (I have to have my calendars start on Sunday, but not my week at a glance pages - weird!) and ends July 2019.  I printed the page and cut down the middle.  I have two students so it works perfectly.  Here's the link

PS - You might notice that October doesn't have the weekends highlighted - that has been corrected!
