It’s happening again, the year is already coming to its end. I don’t know about you, but for me it always feels like it is sneaking up on me.
So, for next year, why not get more organized. Try to stay on top of things and feel like you’re in control. That usually helps me to get a hold of things.
And what better way to do that, than to get a nice calendar and planning gimmicks. I’m always more motivated to stay on top of things, when they look pretty (ha, so superficial, but what am I gonna do. It helps, right?)
I guess it just speaks to my creative side, and to see other people put so much work and love in creating beautiful planners and calendars is inspiring.
So here come my favorite and some of the best planners, calendars and free printables out there.
Wait, two more things:
First, a big thank you ♥ to all those creative bloggers, especially the ones listed below, for making these amazing planners, calendars and designs available (for free)!
Second, this post also contains affiliate links. You can read more about that on my site policies.
I always like to have a wall calendar that I print out. Last year, I used a floral one that I printed in black and white, and I loved it. So for this year, I found this cute floral wall calendar. It is by the gorgeous “dear crissy” and it also comes with an overview page. Download it here.
Update: The gorgeous floral wall calendar I used last year is now also available to download this year. Check it out here!
I love watercolor, so when I found this calendar, I was really excited to share it! This is an awesome watercolor freebie (!) calendar by the “cottage market“. The design is impacable! Check it out here.
If you are looking for a whole planner, I love this one by “the organized dream”. It comes as a whole package, with trackers, e.g. a revenue&expense page and a password tracker. Also, as a huge plus for bloggers, it comes with a blog post tracker, a blogging calendar and social media tracker. Lots of nice things. Download it here.
I used “eliza ellis” weekly planner and the habit tracker throughout 2017 already, and plan to keep on using it. It comes in 7 (!) different designs, in A4 or A5 and cover pages for your planner! It is absolutely gorgeous. Download it here and make sure to also check out here other planners and calendars (lots of goodies on her page!).
If you prefer a hardcover planner, I am obsessed with the Rifle Paper Co. Planner. It comes with a floral print on the outside and simplicity on the inside. I like that it isn’t too bulky/thick which leaves enough space for me to add washi tape, notes and stickers 😊. You can check it out here*
*they also make a cute wall appointment calendar!
As for add-ons like sticker, washi tape designs and tags, you have to try out “chiclife design” . You can download checklist boxes, vertical boxes with beautiful patterns and a “you got this” box as well as functional stickers, washi tape designs and habit trackers! Get it here.
I also got the Recollections Washi tape set* . I love the different tape cuts that have numbers, weekdays and checkboxes on them, as well as tapes with text (“important”, “to-do” or “life is good”). And I think you get a lot of bang for the buck: 45 different washi tapes you can all use for journaling in one box! Check it out here*
Last but not least, check out this cute kit by “Fit Life Creative” . I just love the design and the cute to-do list! I will print them out a couple of times and attach them to our fridge with a magnet! Download it here.
Alright, those are my favorites.
And now the bad news: no excuses anymore to not be more organized in 2018! ♥
