How to Make a Planner + FREE 2013 Cover Page
Decide on what you want in your planner – it can be super simple, calendar style OR you can make it homekeeping binder style.
Write down the pages you want and what order you’d like them in
Make/source/purchase printables for your planner – print or send to be printed and bound
You can print your printables and bring them to a local copy shop (Staples, Office Max, OR have them printed at your local copy shop)- you can also send your printables via email to these copy shops as well), OR you can send them to an online copy shop and they’ll arrive at your door in a couple days
Just to see what the process was like and because it’s a lot cheaper, I uploaded the following three documents (make sure that you have saved the documents that you are going to use to your computer so you can easily upload them) to bestvaluecopy.com (if you ‘google’ cheap color copies, you can find color copies for around 5-10 cents/page)
2013 Calendar (12 pages – print back to back)
Brights Weekly Docket (52 copies/pages for 52 weeks – print back to back)
- Then I chose the binding, paper type, front and back cover, and chose back to back printing.
