My Homemade Planner
Hey there! I’m on Day 3 of no school due to the cold…meaning that we’ve had school for a grand total of 2 days during the past 3 weeks, thanks to winter break! Eesh! Going back for a full week next week is gonna be rough. Assuming, that is, that the temps actually climb above -300 degrees. 😉
Anyway, I’ve been getting a lot done during these days off. Something I accomplished yesterday was getting my 2015 planner ready. Recently, I’ve taken to making my own planners. I tend to be rather…particular…about the pages in my planner! So when I couldn’t find one in stores that I liked, my husband suggested I make my own. Genius, husband!!
I found out that planners are really pretty easy to make, once you figure out what you’re doing. (I actually made one this past summer, but then decided I wanted a new layout for 2015.) I print out the pages I want on my own printer – I use card stock for the monthly pages and regular paper for the weekly pages. Then, I take it to Office Depot, where they bind it and add a frosted cover and back cover for some durability. Voila! It’s very inexpensive and I get just what I want.
Happy teaching (and planning!)
