Okay guys, I know I usually have our yearly planners out at the start of the school year, but I’m SUPER behind this year. Better late than never, right? After hearing plenty of feedback from last year’s version, we stuck with the clean design with colorful accents, but tweaked our weekly tasks pages a bit to better go with what many of you were looking for. You can nab our Free Printable 2018 Planner for Busy Moms, and get your scheduling and to-do lists more under control for the new year!
Yes, the planner download is FREE – but if you don’t want to deal with downloading, printing & binding all by yourself, you’re welcome to purchase it from where we get our own copy printed…
While I always worked with planners that started on Sunday, I heard a vast majority of you asking for it to begin on MONDAY instead – wish granted! Also, we have the days organized along the top of the page, and then several lines down, with AM, PM or EVE (evening) along the edge. This will give more freedom and room for writing down the many tasks we tackle each week!
Many of you said you didn’t care much for the dates for each day all year long, either – asking instead for it more general in case you need/want to make copies during the month. Again, we made that change! I’m really happy with the cleaner look and more lines and space for writing in.
For our monthly spread, we didn’t hear any big requested changes by the larger portion of you, so kept it the same. Large squares allows for writing in important dates or events, with a section along the right side for taking any notes.
At the bottom right corner you’ll find the previous month as well as the following month, so you’re not having to flip back and forth much while handling your planner.
We stuck with offering you the FOUR cover designs, since there was such a variety of preferences…
Each design can have a BLANK blue box, or have a little line/ribbon down it (I prefer this, so I write the year beneath and either my name or Busy Mom’s Helper above it)…
Here’s the breakdown of the covers…
- Top Left – Cover 4
- Top Right – Cover 3
- Bottom Left – Cover 2
- Bottom Right – Cover 1
Since we’re so late getting this out this year, we didn’t worry about starting in August – after all, most of you won’t be going BACK to write things in for the previous few months, I assume. As such, this 2018 planner will go from January through December 2018.
In each pdf, it has the front cover with a blank back, then a 2-page NOTES spread. After that is the monthly spread of January, followed by the weekly tasks for January, then the February monthly calendar spread, then February’s weekly tasks spreads……and so forth through December. After the last week of December’s tasks is a 2-page NOTES spread, then 1 page of NOTES – then a blank page to be the inside of the back cover.
I designed these to be 8.5×11 in size – sorry, we don’t have smaller/different sizes this year as we had far too many people getting confused how to print them and getting upset with us because we couldn’t tell them how to work it on their own printer. We apologize for that, but we can’t possibly help so many people with all their different printers or programs. 🙂
