Printable Calendars, Planners and MORE!

"Presentation is half the battle." And I LOVE pretty things. Somehow, if I've got a graphically designed calendar or a super cute planner I suddenly become more productive. Maybe it's a girl-thing. Yesterday as I was getting paperwork ready for my first PTA meeting as Council President, I was working on the agenda (ho-hum) and knew I needed to add some graphical touches. Bree, my cute teenager, smiled as complimented it. (Bree is the artist in the family!)

Now, here's the thing. If you're not an artist or a graphic designer ... it's doesn't mean you can't enjoy the cuter things in life! I am constantly finding stylish printables & templates to fit my needs. Here are just a few of my current favs:

blank daily printable planner for mothers
1. Routine Planner and Daily Schedule for Mothers from www.MeetPenny.com. Love the colors here. You can create a daily routine as a "guide" and then individualize the days.

2. Free Financial Printable from www.pinchalittlesavealot.blogspot.com. Budgeting ... not normally a fun subject. But I think these are just the dose of fun my budget needs!
Fab N Free: Free Weekly Menu Planner Printable
3. Weekly Menu Plan from www.fabnfree.com. Next to budgeting this is probably the second most avoided topic in the house. And don't you dare ask, "What's for Dinner??" But what if you planned out 4 weeks and rotated them in a picture frame? Genius!!

i heart organizing printables
4. Daily Planner from www.iheartorganizing.com. You can find many printables for free (and I do!) but sometimes to get the really good stuff you've got to be willing to pay for it. And really, if you are really going to use it, shouldn't we support the artists? Jennifer Jones is a brilliant designer and I just love the her style. she not only shows you how to use the elements together, but allows you to purchase that the products that you would actually use. LOVE!

Printable blog planner
5. How about a Blog Planner from www.infarrantlycreative.net? She breaks it down in a video with how to put it together and how to use it to plan a fabulous blog. Great ideas!

People are always telling me how creative I am ... if only they knew! ;)
