2016 Free Printable Planner

CLICK HERE for the 2017 Planner!
The long awaited 2016 Printable Planner!  I think this years is my favorite!  

Now... Please remember that I AM giving this for free, but I do work long and hard on it.  It takes me several hours to get the fonts, dates, colors.... everything the way they are.  As it is... I am sure it isn't perfect!  I fix mistakes and update as they are found, but... I am human!  

Seeing how much time I spend on this my husband and family think I should charge.  Personally... I have always offered this for free and I am SURE that is the only reason it is so popular.  But, he is right.  I spend a lot of time on this.  Most printable planners go for anywhere between 10 and 30 dollars on Etsy.  So this year I will be simply asking for donations.  IF you like my planner I am just going to use the honor system and ask that you donate what you think it's worth. Please click the link below!  It's Paypal so it's super easy to do!

Now... On to the planner!

HOW TO PRINT
I print everything front to back (2 sided) on my printer.   If you do not have a printer that will print on both sides I recommend either manually flipping your pages OR hopefully you have the option to select all even pages, then flipping, then selecting all odd, and print.  Maybe you can manually type in to print 1, 3, 5, 7...  then flip.  
This is the new opening page!  I keep my planners thought the years.  To me they are almost like a journal.  I like seeing where I was on different dates and comparing.  Sometimes I even go back and write in something that happened on a day that passed.  It's interesting to see how I use my planner and how it changes for me!  
The monthly/weekly portion are saved in two downloads.  January to June and July to December.  They are very large files and I have a hard time getting them to download to the site I save my printables on.  But here is a view of the monthly calendar!  I kept it VERY much like last year, because I like the size and I used the goal portion.
Here is a view of the weekly!  I actually really liked my layout from last year so the only thing I took away was the water droplets to track that you were drinking water.  I just felt like the page was super cluttered and I am super bad at tracking water.  
The square with the shopping list is the right size to place a post-it note.  I LOVED this part!  I put post-it notes on all my pages when I put my planner together.  I do my meal planning on Sundays so it was nice to have a place to meal plan and shopping list all in one.  
I switched up some of the quotes, others I kept because I really liked them.
Other than that everything else is the same as last year, just with a different font and colors.
This one most would print and place before monthly calendar.  I like mine after.  I placed this as a separate printable so you could put it where you like!
I revamped the monthly budget pages.  These are printed with 3 pages of Daily Expense tracking sheets.  Print 12 sets, front to back, so you have one for each month.
Cleaning Checklist!  I didn't create one last year and I wished I had.  I usually print about 4 of these as my life, family, and the time of year can drastically change my cleaning schedule.  If anything, writing it down helps me to remember what I decided to do.
Alright!  I understand that writing down your passwords and such is probably not a fabulous idea, but...  I don't write down ANY of my passwords that are vital to financial security.  I use this more for my Netflix password or any random sites that have me create a password just to buy something.
THIS one is my favorite.  I always have a long list of projects to get done.  This is a great way for my to have a running list and decide which one really needs to get done next.  
I know this seems like a silly one, but...  It is fabulous for meal planning.  We have family favorites and ones that I enjoy cooking and ones that I know the kids can cook.  I just put their initial by the meal they can cook.
Here are a few note pages.  Depending on how you like to put your planner together I usually put a ton at the end.   This year I left a skinny space at the bottom with no lines for doodling or randomness.  I don't know why.  I just felt like it was a good idea.


To download just CLICK the kinds ON THE WORDS BELOW.  It will open another window and you just have to save it to your computer from there.  This also gives you the option to view it before downloading to see if it is something you would really like!


Please let me know if you find any mistakes and I will try to fix them quickly!  Again... If you like my printable I ask that you donate this year so I can continue to keep this going!  I do work hard on it.  Hope you enjoy it!

  1. I absolutely love this planner! I've been searching for a new one but I'm very picky and have not been pleased with any until now. One of my favorite features is the Random Project List. Seriously. Thank you!

  2. Hello Jessica!!! I am more then happy to donate for your planner this year. Your planner is wonderful and worth every penny. I had searched for over a month last year when I came upon your blog through Pinterest. As soon as I seen what you had created, I knew that my prayers had been answered. I have thoroughly enjoyed your 2015 planner and have no doubt that I will love the 2016 just as much. If you decide to fully charge for this next year, I will be first in line to purchase. Thank you for all the time and heart you have put into this and know that it is very much appreciated.

  5. Any chance I could get this in a different color scheme? I use most of my planning printables from a specific etsy source, but really love your weekly set-up! I would be willing to pay if we could set something up. svmclean4@gmail.com

    1. Unfortunately I do a lot of cut and paste with the colors so creating a new color scheme would take a TON of time. And... we have a baby due any day now. BUT... next year you can defiantly expect multiple color schemes! Just out of curiosity... what colors were you thinking?

  6. I love your design and sent you a small donation. :) Any thoughts on how to print these to fit in a smaller binder besides taking screen shots? Thanks!

    1. SURE! There are two options depending on your printer. You can either select a different paper size and it should print smaller. In this case you will probably have to print on 8 x 11 and then cut to size. If you want the cuts perfect you could probably take them to Staples or Office Depot and they will cut for you.

      Next option is to select print at 50% or print 2 to a page. Again... Probably printing on 8x 11 and cutting, but All of this depends on what printer you have.
