Free Printable Planner

The 2019 Daily Page by Thyme is Honey

I’m pretty obsessed with my organizational notepads, but for years I’ve fielded requests for a planner. For the past few years I’ve provided a free Double Page Calendar File, so that those people who were begging for a planner could DIY it by creating a customized binder.

This fall I finally started the process of designing The Daily Page Planner! The process was amazing and I learned so much, but unfortunately, the process was slower than I anticipated, and I was unable to confirm a design in time to guarantee arrival before January 1st. So, I have decided to launch it in 2019, and am looking forward to having a bit of extra time to perfect the design.

In the meantime, I thought I’d show you how I organize my calendars along with The Daily Page to create a customized planner that helps me prioritize my productivity and wellness throughout the entire year. See below for a quick tutorial on creating your own Daily Page Binder.

Thyme is Honey Tabs

Step 1: Get your Supplies

  • A 3-ring binder. I prefer ones that can open 365 degrees so that you can fold them entirely in half. They take up less space on your desk and are easier to write on. Pictured is 1″ inch binder. I find that this size fits a year’s worth of pages just fine.  Purchase mine: Avery Flip Back 360 Binder ($8.75).
  • Monthly Tabs. You can find all sorts of designs and colors, but I prefer something simple. These ones have a black faux-leather tab with embossed gold months. Purchase mine: Avery Leather-Look Tab Dividers ($4.34).

If you’re printing at a local print shop, you won’t need to worry about a printer, paper, or hole punch, as they’ll be able to print your double-sided files and will have everything else you need. However, if you’re doing this at home you may also need:

  • 3-Hold Punch. If you don’t have one of these, it will come in handy. This is the one I have, and it punches up to 10 pages at once. Purchase mine: Swingline Hole Puncher ($7.84).
  • Printer Paper. I really love using 24lb paper for the annual planner. It’s light, but still thick enough to ensure that markers/pens don’t bleed through from the front to the back. Purchase mine; Hammermill 24lb Paper ($10.29).

Now that you’ve got all the supplies on hand, you’re ready to start printing your pages. Start by printing out 12 sets of this Double Page Calendar Design. The PDFs are available for FREE via the link below. Simply download and print. The calendars are dateless, so you’ll need to add the months and dates yourself. This allows you to format the weekly layout and dates the way you prefer!

Step 3: Pick out a Daily or Weekly Page Layout

All of my daily and weekly designs come in options for 3-ring binders, which have a margin along the left side so that you have room for punching. You might prefer to use the same layout every day, or you might switch it up depending on how busy your day/week is, or what sort of projects you need to tackle.

I typically use The Daily Page, but when I have a lot going on, the 7-Page Weekly Planner is my BFF, as it allows me to track even more to-dos and projects. Some weeks I focus more on batch work, and on those week’s my 1-Page Weekly Planner helps provide a super helpful overview of what the week is going to look like. Pick the layout(s) that will work best for you. Pictured above, left to right: The Daily Page (includes standard and 3-hold punch files), the 7-Page Weekly Planner  (includes standard and 3-hole punch files), The Original Daily Page with 3-hole Punch.

These designs can all be purchased in my Etsy Shop. After purchase, you’ll be able to download the PDF to your computer and print at home or a local print shop. View all the products that are available in my Etsy Shop.

That’s it! I hope that this FREE Double Page Calendar design can help you put together a planner + system that will work for you, and will help you have the happiest, healthiest, more productive year yet.
