2014 Planner Printable

I am a sucker for printed planners.  I always have been, but since being married and having kids there was a point where I slipped away from them.   
One year I decided to create a blank planner printable for my husband who has used a printed planner ever since I have known him.  And since I was making one for him I decided to make one for me
I was rehooked!  I have no clue how I stayed organized without one!

He recreated a monster.  That was 2012 and for 2013 I decided I wanted something a little bigger and opted for an Erin Condren Life Planner.  LOVE IT!  So cute, perfect size, and great quality all wrapped into one amazing planner!

For 2014 I wanted to go the Erin Condren route again.  But I was a little late in ordering and it wouldn't even be shipped until Jan 9th by the time I looked at it!  How would I stay organized until then!  My children would run about willy nilly and our meals would consist of PB&J for breakfast, lunch and dinner!  So I decided to go on Etsy and check out the printables for sale.  I figured this way I could customize the pages a little more and it would cost less than a Life Planner from Erin.

While browsing Etsy I expressed my plight over not being able to choose. And feeling guilty for paying for something I would still have to print and could have create myself.  Then there was fact that none of them were quite perfect for what I wanted and I would have to mix and match planner styles.  It wouldn't match!  So my husband opened his big mouth.  
"Why don't you just create your own?"
I have plenty to do.  I didn't want to make a printable.  It takes time, I don't think I am that great at it and  I seriously need a new computer.  And plus I want the dates printed on the page.  I don't want just blanks that I fill in.  Call me picky.  It would take forever to do that myself. 
Then my husband opened his big mouth again.
"Ok.  I just know you will like it more if you make it. I KNOW you can do a great job. You are amazing."
Silence on my end while I rev up for the idea...  And husband realizes that I am beginning to change my mind and that I will spend hours on the computer making something perfect but that I didn't want to initially.  He opens his mouth again.
"WAIT!  You don't have too!  Spend the money please.  Save yourself sometime.  You are... also great at adapting and you will love whatever you find and put together on Etsy!"
To late hubs... you have create a monster who then spends hours creating herself the perfect planner and then posts it on her tiny blog in hopes that at least one other person will use her hours of work besides herself.   But it's OK!  We watched the entire next season of Sons of Anarchy and a few episodes of House of Cards and I only neglected my children for a little bit.  
AND NOW TO MY PLANNER!
The following pages I printed on 8.5 x 11 24 Lb paper and selected borderless when printing.  Not sure about how your printer works.  Play with a few pages before you go to crazy.

ALL DOWNLOADS ARE AFTER EACH DESCRIPTION 
AND AT THE END OF THE POST!!!
To start there is a brief info sheet.
Followed by a two page spread of a month...
...and then all the weekly pages that follow that month.

The monthly and weekly printables are all in order.  You just have to print front and back.
There are in two seperate downloads to keep the file size small.
Like I said... my computer is slow and 7 years old.  
P.S. I printed my January to June before triple checking all the spelling....  Apparently it's the year TwentyFOUteen for me.  LOL  I fixed it for you.

Since I was creating my own planner and had search Pinterest and Etsy like a MAD woman (because all the best people are mad right?) I knew there were a few extra sheets I would like to add.  I will put them in the order that I printed them for my planner.  Most likely you will want to rearrange them for yourself!  Chances are I will before getting it bound!
Special Dates are on 4 seperate pages.  I printed these front to back.  These are so I can remember birthdays and anniversaries or holidays.
Budget Planning - There are 4 sheets in this.  One monthly budget sheet and then 3 expense tracking sheets. We are Dave Ramsey fans in our house.  He has helped us to stay debt free!  I printed one set for each month.
Favorite Recipes - We do family dinners at our house.  Since my hubby works a 24 on 24 off work shift at the fire station we don't get to see him much.  But we are allowed to bring him dinner!  But with piano, karate, birthdays, church activities...  we get busy.  Writing down a list of our favorite recipes is just one of my quick ways to schedule my weeks in the planner.
Meal Planning / Grocery List - Many of the planner printables I found on Etsy had an individual section  just for meal planning.  I created one thinking I would use it, but...  I will use just a Favorite Recipe List and place them right onto my weekly planner pages.  Just easier for me.  But I made the sheet so I had to share.  SOMEONE use it PLEASE! 
Cleaning Checklist - I printed only one of these with a notes sheet on the back.  This is more so I can look at it and know what needs to be or already has been done.
Auto Maintenance - I am horrible at remembering things like this, but since the hubby is gone so much I am the one that keeps track of things like this.  Neither of us are super mechanical so an auto maintenance sheet will be useful (I think...).  It has a notes sheet on the back so you can track anything else I didn't include.
Babysitter Checklist - I loved this idea!  Especially since we make a habit of moving around a ton AND have a 4 year old who seems to love bi-yearly trips to the ER.  I printed 10.  Hopefully we go on that many dates!  We are stay in, drink fancy hot cocoa, grab a Redbox and snuggle type of people.  It's cheap!  Just like me. (But my husband hates it when I say that.  He says I am not cheap I am thrifty.)
Contacts - Um... to write down the names and numbers of people or places.
Password Log - To help me keep track of passwords and kids log ins for school.  
Blog - You never know... with all this planner organization I just might remember to post something besides this planner!
Random Ideas - This is more a of TO DO list.  I have one side for household things (ex:Create new sewing table from Treadle or Reorganize winter hats and gloves.)  The other side is for random things! (ex: Finish quilt for baby shower or clean toys in the church nursery.)
Notes - You may recognize this sheet because it is included with a few others.  I wanted extras of these for random note taking.  Like... when meeting with a teacher or writing down that cute clothing website a friend recommended.

Here is a list of all the printables found on this post!
Print and Enjoy!

  1. WOnderful! Thank you so much for the printable. I decided I didn't like my student planner I purchased in July so I was looking for a replacement for 6 months until I could order another july-july planner, so your jan-june one is PERFECT for me so I don't have 6 months I don't need with the dates already in (I agree, paying for a PDF that you have to print and add dates to seems silly!) Thanks again!

  3. Thank you :) You are a life saver, I buy a planner and don't use half of it. You have managed almost all of the important stuff to me as well as some I didn't think about.

  4. Thank you so very much for the lovely printable xxxx Exactly what I was looking for! I appreciate the effort you put into the design too! Simple but not so ordinary ^_^

    For some reason the printable doesn't show up the grid lines on the weekly. It would be painful to go back and redo them, but just wanted to let you know.

    Thank you so much again!!!!

  23. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS!!! I have the same problem you did! I felt bad having to pay for something I still had to print and put together. I had trouble finding something free that was hip, colorful and that the layout just worked for me. THESE ARE PERFECT! Thank you for saving a grad school student some money and some sanity! Definitely will be following this site now!
