My Planner and Organizer (Free Printable)

By the end of last year, I had a lot on my plate: my TPT store (with products, newsletters, feedback), my blog, the FB page, my Pinterest account, and everything related to my full-time job. At first I thought that I can keep everything under control without using a planner (I was only using a small app on my phone). But I was wrong…VERY wrong! :)

So I asked some of my friends (mostly teachers) for advice. They told me they had problems with the planners they used in the past, mostly because these weren’t suitable for all their needs. It was either that the planners had too many categories or not enough. There are lots of cute, but impractical planners out there which require a lot of time to fill in and organize. So I decided to make my own: something easy and practical that I can use to keep a record of my social media accounts and my budget. I’m going to share it with you today. 

What I do is use write down everything I did/ I plan to do for my TPT store, blog, and FB page with the date and the product that I worked on/ will work on. I use a green friction pen to write down what I want to do and a blue one for what I have done.

The same goes for the budget. On the first page, I tick the box when I pay the bill. I left an empty space on the lower side, where I stick post its with my to do list.
On the second page of my budget planner I write the date and the things I bought, then the total and who paid for it. At the end of each month, I analyze how much money I spent on junk food or unnecessary items and try to be more careful next month.  

I keep all the pages in an A4 arch folder, so when I need to add more it’s very easy. It has been working very well! You can download thefree organizer by clicking on any of the images in this article.
