I got my Filofax back in December and since then, I’ve been going back and forth on the best layout for my weekly view. I’ve tried a few different layouts.. this horizontal week on 2 pages that I posted back in December is the one that I actually used more than any other but it wasn’t perfect. I hated having to look up the dates every week to fill in, I wasn’t in love with the horizontal layout, and to be honest, it was a little too free-form for it to be useful to me. I found myself drawing in extra boxes and using post it notes to add in extra sections that could have easily just been incorporated into the original layout.
I did notice that the more Plan With Me videos I watched, the more I fell in love with the look/layout of the Erin Condren Life Planner but wasn’t crazy about it being a ring bound book or certain things in the layout (the morning/day/night headings, among other things), so I decided to see what I could come up with when I tried to make my own planner set. I now present to you, the free August – December 2015 planner set.
As you can see in the picture above, this set is black and white. This is mostly because I made the set as a sample to see what it would look like. I will be making a 2016 version that will be in full color and include a few more pages that this set does not have. Specifically, a meal planning section, a cleaning checklist, and few other surprise goodies. If anyone has any ideas of pages they would like to see added, please leave a comment below!
Close up of the goals, notes, and Mon. – Wed. half of the week on 2 pages.
Close up of the Thurs. – Sun. page. Each week also includes a section for daily tracking, which is not something I’ve seen in any other planner. I’ve been using it specifically to keep track of daily medications & chores and it’s actually been great to be able to glance at the page and see if I did something the day before or not.August - December 2015 Planner Pages (577 downloads)
