Using a planner helps you direct your own and your family’s activities rather than just reacting (in a panic) to activities and appointments as they pop up. You don’t have to purchase an expensive planner system to stay organized and reduce your stress.

What is a printable planner?

A planner is basically a beefed up calendar. A printable planner is one that you can download and print out on your own printer (no need to go out to the store).

The advantage of printable planner pages is that you can design your own planner by choosing the planner pages, different layouts and page sizes to match the size of your planner.

Free planner printables are a great way to try different planning printables and different styles so you can find what works best for you – for free.

Why you should use paper planner printables:

  • Increase productivity
    • Set goals for yourself
    • Use habit trackers to monitor your progress towards your goals
    • Keep track of tasks 
    • Brainstorm
  • Improve time management
    • Keep track of activities and appointments
    • Schedule tasks to meet your needs and schedule
    • Keep track of deadlines
  • Reduce your stress
    • No more last-minutes cram sessions because you forgot about a deadline
    • No more missed appointments
  • Keep track of key information
    • No more losing phone numbers, due dates or important information
  • The act of writing helps you remember and helps you process information in a way that doesn’t happen with digital planners

Frequently Asked Questions About Using a Printable Planner

Do I Need Special Paper?

While you could print the free printable pages out on computer paper, you won’t be happy with it. It won’t feel or behave like a real planner. My favorite paper to use for printed planners is 32 lb paper. You’ll be happiest with how your planner works if you use 28-32 lb paper. 

Can I Print on My Own Printer?

Absolutely. I enjoy using my own planner printables because I can print them out at my convenience at home. I usually print on draft to save a bit of ink, but if you’d like a more luxurious planner experience, don’t scrimp on the ink. 

You can adjust the amount of ink used in the printer settings.

How do I Get It To Print Out Correctly?

I recommend printing a trial run on computer paper with the printer settings on draft and grey scale. This allows you to see exactly how everything will print out. 

It’s not always intuitive to know how to print the planner pages out so that they’re in the order that you’d like.

Every printer is different and we all think about how to do this differently. Here are two tutorials that I use whenever I’m printing out a new planner pdf.

Do I Need a Special Cover or Binder?

Absolutely not. You could just staple the pages together and go. But most of us prefer a planner that is set up like a notebook. I personally prefer the disc bound system because it’s so simple to remove and reposition pages. But you can use this printable planner in any binder or binding system that you prefer.

  • Disc Bound – There are many different disc bound systems.
  • 3-Ring Binder – You can use a basic 3-ring binder for find a pretty one that is perfect to hold a planner. 
  • Spiral Bound – You can take your printed planner to your local office supply or printing store and have them spiral bind it for you while you wait for a minimal cost.

Warning – The disc bound notebooks and discs come in different sizes, so please be careful in choosing the sizes. The 3-ring binders come with different configurations for the holes. You can always hand-punch the holes, but if you’d like to use a 3-hole punch, make sure your binder is in line with your hole punch.
