Planner Printables: Keep Your Schedule and Budget in Order

It seems that the older I get, the more stuff I have going on. Funny, I thought that getting older meant things would calm down, but that has yet to be the case!

On that note, I quickly discovered that there was a great need for new organization tools that I could use to keep everything in order. Sure, I have a planner that I use to track meetings and assignments, but I wanted something that would cover more than just the basics.

That’s why I decided to start creating my own planner printables (available in The Study Sesh shop).

The Study Sesh Planner Printables Cover More than Just Your Schedule

I’ve been working hard to consistently add new products to the shop based on areas in life that we could all use a little more organization. The hourly planner printable featured above is a simple design for those of you who just need to divide your day into smaller increments. I created this one with students in mind, but this could easily be used for anyone who has a tight schedule to keep (I’m talking to you entrepreneurs – I know you’re hustling hard out there to gain success)!

I also recognized a need for shopping list and menu planner printables for those individuals who like to have meals planned in advance.

(This is one area that I could definitely work on in my own life, but that’s a whole different story)

Menu Planning Made Easy!

By the way, this was not the original design I had envisioned at all. Originally, I didn’t even plan on having the days included, but I quickly realized that it made sense to have the menu planner right next to the shopping list. I think one of the biggest benefits of having shopping list and meal planner printables is that you can post them on the fridge for everyone to see.

That’s right – No more children nagging you about what’s for dinner on Wednesday after book club. You now have the power to tell them that they can reference the fridge if they would like to see what’s on the menu.

Need an Organization Overhaul – Get a Life Planner

I’m no stranger to running a chaotic life.

Sometimes it feels like you literally have 30 hours of work to fit into a 8 hour work day (which actually ends up being 10 hours because a meeting ran over, a client went into crisis, or you absolutely HAD to get your final product turned in by the midnight deadline).

Talk about stressful!

That’s why I decided it was time to create a life planner printable so that you could get all of the necessities in one place.

Although this planner printable is not as detailed as some out there, it definitely is enough to get you started on the right track. Here’s what’s included:

  • Life planner cover sheet
  • 1 bill payment tracker sheet (columns for bill/expense name, amount, due date, date paid, on time, and remaining balance)
  • 1 savings sheet (room for all 52 weeks of the year)
  • 1 shopping list and menu planner printable
  • 12 weekly planning sheets (one for each month – blanks are included at the top so that you can write in the dates that apply)

I chose purposely to leave off the year or specific dates in this planner printable because I wanted people to be able to use it whenever they wanted. The great thing about purchasing one of these is that you can print as many as you want! That’s right – I haven’t put any limits on them. I did my best to make sure that these planner printables work for you so that you can get your life organized without spending an arm and a leg.

And Don’t Forget the Budgeting Sheets!

Let’s just be honest – Keeping track of your finances is SUPER important! There are tons of budgeting tools and sheets out there, but I wanted to create a simple set that was easy for anyone to use. The 3 page budgeting printable set featured above contains a budget sheet, transaction tracker, and calender.

The inspiration behind these budgeting printables came from the fact that so many of the students I’ve interacted with lately have no clue how to manage their money. It’s one of those life skills that is SO important… I just wanted to create an easy way for them to understand the concept. After feeling super inspired, these sheets were born and here they are now! Funny how that whole motivation thing works…

Why Printables are Better

If you have never purchased a printable before and are a little apprehensive, here are some reasons why they are better than purchasing physical copies of things:

  • Print as many as you want once you make your purchase from The Study Sesh or another seller
  • Fill in the dates that apply to you (no more spending money every year on planners and new filler sheets)
  • The options are endless… literally
  • Some sellers offer customization services

Since I enjoy designing planner printables and understand that money can get tight, I make free printables every now and then to help out. Like I said, the last thing I want to do is break your bank. I just know how much I spent on my planner this year and I’m honestly appalled because I could have easily bought a printable version for so much cheaper!

Alright, enough about getting organized – I’d like to hear from you! What are some of your favorite designs and colors for planners, shopping lists, or budgeting sheets?

    Love these! I recently discovered that I could easily bind my own printables and so I have been printing off custom blog organizers, budget planners, and home planners for myself then heading to Office Depot to have them bound. SO much better than buying a generic calendar planner. 🙂

      I completely agree! It’s amazing how much money you can save by creating your own AND you can customize them to fit your personal and household needs!

    February 18, 2015 at 11:10 am

    I love this idea! I can never find a planner with what I need. Its always missing something or has too many things I don’t need. These are beautiful!

      I can’t go a day without my planner anymore… Always so much to do and only so much space in my brain to remember it all 🙂

    I pretty much need all of these! I’m so disorganized, it’s one of those things that I feel motivated to do once a year, and then it slowly tapers off.

      I’m an organizer by heart but even I get to a point where I need to separate my tasks into different sheets so that everything stays straight!

    One day, I’ll have my whole life organized in a binder with printables. For now, I’ll settle for a generic planner from Amazon and an Excel budget. If anything could encourage me to get that binder going, though, it would be your fun printables!

    these are great! i am notorious for buying planners and forgetting to use them. and then rebuying another with the intention of “getting organized”. having a downloadable piece is helpful for people like me who continually forget a few days. thanks for sharing.
