It’s the beginning of a new school year, and we’re all gearing up for another crazy season. Are you ready?
If not, keep reading.
I was reasonably well organized at my last job with the help of my Bullet Journal, but when I switched jobs this summer, I just couldn’t keep up with all the projects and deadlines and timelines. It was too much to track, and too much work to make so many pages so quickly.
Sure, I could buy a planner for a couple bucks from the store. But none of them fit me. None of them had everything I wanted.
So, as any reasonable girl would do, I went to Pinterest.
There were millions of options, as Pinterest tends to provide, but I began curating content that fit my style, and stumbled across the Traveler’s Notebooks, or the Midori system.
I’d looked at this system before; it looks so cute put together!… But I didn’t want to invest a ton of money on building a system I may or may not like or use.
I’d rather not spend any money, to be honest.
So I created my own version of a Traveler’s Notebook, in a desktop size: plain old 8.5×11 inch paper!
No cutting, no waste, no new expenses.
Everybody has plain old printer paper on hand. It costs practically nothing, and it’s a good size.
I made a cover out of some extra leather we had in our stock, and I used elastic string to run a few bands up and down the spine.
Print, fold, insert, go.
That’s my kind of timeline.
And I think this could work for you, too.
Because I love this system so much, I’m going to let you try out my printables for free! No mailing list, no email, no strings attached!
Download and print your very first journal insert here.
Here’s what you need to know about it:
- Use letter-sized paper (8.5″x11″).
- Print it double-sided (and have it flip on the short edge!)
- Most printers are able to handle 0.25″ margins, so there should be no need to “fit” or “scale” this page. It’s made to print in its original, actual size.
- Fold the booklet in half, and you’re ready to go for the next 2 weeks! If you want more weeks, simply print multiple copies and nest them inside each other.
- Share this website with your friends if they want a copy, too! All I ask is that you link back to this original website.
After developing my first printable, I’ve made over 60 pages of printable resources to fit my needs. I’m looking forward to sharing them with you over the next few weeks.
I hope they help you as much as they’ve helped me. Because we’re all crazy busy, and we need to stick together.
I’m rooting for you!
