Question for 2019 Inserts

What kind of calendars and other inserts would you like to see on Planner Fun for 2019?  Be specific and include the size that you use in your planner.

Thanks!

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!

[31 Days #17] Planner Walk Through: Health Section

I've mentioned before (probably several times, LOL), that I am a post kidney transplant patient.  Although I am definitely glad to be alive, I encounter a number of ailments and side effects from the drugs that I take.  I track unusual symptoms and change in my health to reference at my quarterly appointments with my nephrologist.  One of the biggest reasons I like using a planner is because I don't have to forget anything!

[31 Days #16] Planner Walk Through: Lists Section & a Note About That Inbox

On day 12 I talked a little bit about my dashboard and how behind it I have blank paper that serves as my "inbox."  I didn't go into a lot of detail about the inbox but it is really a big deal in the GTD system.

When you first get started with this system, you are encouraged to write everything that you've been thinking about into your inbox.  The planner world also calls that a "Brain Dump".  Once that's done, you take every item your wrote down and process it - you put it somewhere and sometimes that is a list.

My list section holds several different lists and like my projects section, I keep an index as the very first page to list all my lists!  😏

My current lists are:

  1. Someday List
  2. Priority list
  3. Planner To Do List
  4. Christmas Wish List
  5. Cleaning Tasks List
  6. Master Goal List
