Home Search Planner Printable (4)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Happy Planner, and one of the things I love the most about it is how customizable it is. With the use of a punch I can put just about anything in my planner.  As I have mentioned in previous posts, we are currently in the process of selling out current home and purchasing another.  We received the good news the other day that our house in under contact so we the hunt for a new home has begun! I put together these simple little printables to help us narrow down our choices and make the best selection.

This file is  in PDF format.  Print at 100% on an 8.5x11in sheet of paper and then cut down to Happy Planner size. (7in x 9.25 in)I suggest using something a little heavier than copy paper as it is thin and will show through. I like this cardstock. After you’ve cut down the sheet punch it and add it to you’re planner.

How I plan my week

How I functionally plan my week in The Happy Planner

As you may know, today is the first day in the new 2016-2017 Happy Planners.  In honor of today I wanted to share a little bit about how  use my Happy Planner to organize and plan my week.  I know I have posted on this topic before, but today I want to focus on the parts of the week planner that i use and how.  This post will be about what works for me; of course everyone’s lives are different so my system may not work for you, but it might give you ideas and insight into how to make your planner work for you. Please note that although this post in similar to a “plan with me,” I will be focusing on my general layout/planing system instead of the creative process of putting together an appealing layout.

IMG_5797

First of all this planner has a Monday start. Because of this I sit down before the start of the week and start thinking about the week ahead. I prefer to do this on Sunday, but it could happen any day Friday-Sunday that I have the time.  First I speak with my husband and jot down his schedule for the week as well as any engagements he has or has roped me into.  Because he works in entertainment, his schedule is not fixed. I like to know his additional plans for the week as well so that I can plan means or plan my own events.  Now that I have an idea of the general make up of the week I can sit down with the week view of my planner.

IMG_5798

The first thing I do with my weekly view is my decorating.  As you my have noticed from my spreads, I tend to keep my weekly layouts simple with lots of white space.  Today I went a little wild and downloaded a free printable weekly kit from My Planner Life.  I stumbled upon her blog last week and it is awesome!  She also includes free Silhouette files so you can print and cut her stickers.  I chose this kit for the week of June 27-July 3rd.

IMG_5796

When I place my stickers I am already thinking about where and how I want things.  I keep the same basic setup each week so it is relatively easy.  The top section of each day is my to do list.  This is where I jot down tasks as they come to me.  I refer to this section the most and I like it to be simple and readable. This is also where I place functional icon stickers like yoga, trash, and others.

In the middle section of each day I have a place for my dinner plan, my  husband’s work schedule, and any other events or important things going on that day.  I also mark holidays, important work meetings, and other events in this space.  If you have kids, this is a great place to record their events, playdates, or school functions. Or, if you’re in school jot down your own school events.  I write down all or most of my meals at the beginning of the week.  After they have been decided on I look through my fridge and pantry and add any grocery items that I need to my grocery app, AnyList.  This app shares my list with my husband so that we can both add to the list as well as see it when we are in the store.  I am notorious for writing a great shopping list only to leave it at home or end up shopping before I was planning on it.

Note on work meetings: I have a separate daily planner for work, however I have been leaving it at work at night so I don’t look at it before I leave the house.  If I have something for work that I need to remember before I leave the house I add in in my personal planner.  All other work events and notes are in my work planner. This helps me keep a good work-life balance while still being prepared for the workweek.

The third section of each day is where I do my blog planning.  I like to write down the posts that need to go up along with reminders to do social media.  I also jot down any blog related to-dos in that section as they come to me.

I tend to switch up what I use the sidebar for.  This month I am tracking my spending.  This way I can go back and see if there are any areas in my life where I need to cut back.  In the past I have used this area for a grocery/shopping list, packing list, or just general notes.  See what works for you.


Although I like to decorate my planner, I always try to keep the focus on functionality first. This means a neat organized layout with space to write down everything I need in a clear and logical fashion.  With the start of this new planner I am working to dedicate myself to really following through with my plans.  To do this I am making it a habit to look at my planner first thing when I get up as well as right before bed.  This way I can ensure I am reviewing the day and preparing for whatever I will need.

Daily Planer insert for the Happy Planner

 

I love the weekly format of the Happy Planner for my home planning needs, but sometimes I have a very busy day and I feel like I need more.  Often I just reply on  a notepad for those days, but sometimes I just want a daily page I can add into my planner.  For those days I created this printable.  With this you can add a daily sheet and then reference it before and after the day itself.

 

This file is  in PDF format.  Print at full size on an 8.5x11in sheet of paper.  I suggest using something a little heavier than copy paper as it is thin and will show through. I like this cardstock. Cut out along the gray lines to get the correct page size and then punch and add to your planner.

Need a punch?  Buy the MAMBI one here, or get  this one off amazon for only $19 and free prime shipping.

I recently joined a new online book group and one of the discussions was how you keep track of your reading.  While I love Goodreads, I also love having a paper record of my books in my planner.  I created these files to share the logs with my readers.  I couldn’t decide on the best color so I made them in pink, purple, and teal.

These files are in PDF format.  Print at full size on an 8.5×11 sheet of paper.  I suggest using something a little heavier than copy paper as it is thin and will show through. I like this cardstock. Cut out along the gray lines to get the correct page size and then punch and add to your planner!

Steps and Mealsfree planner printables

As I mentioned at the beginning of the year I mentioned that one of my goals was to focus on my health.  One of the ways I am doing that is by using an activity tracker.  I use the jawbone up2 to track my sleep, walking, and activities.  I am a very goal oriented person so when I see that I am aiming for 10,00 steps a day this is great encouragement to do what  I can to make this happen.  Because this statistic is a part of my goals for a healthy lifestyle I decided to make planner stickers to track my steps.  These cute little stickers track steps per a day and are great at monitoring over a longer period of time.

Along with walking more, I am trying to plan and think about my meals.  I already plan dinners for the week, but I want to try to keep my other meals healthy also.  I made these meal tracker stickers as a way to keep myself accountable regarding my food choices.  I like to hid bad choices but when everything must be written down I will think twice before something I don’t want to be reminded of for the rest of the week.

 

Anyways, enough talk, here is the printable.  Enjoy!
