I typically only print one month worth of daily pages to put in my planner at a time, otherwise my planner gets too thick. So how do I plan future stuff?
Well, in front of my daily pages, I have a section that I call "Calendar." I keep a calendar of the year, one month on two pages, to write down appointments or reminders or tasks that are more than a month out.
Typically, I check my calendar nightly when I plan for the next day, or at the very least, I'll check it weekly.
I originally tried to do a month-on-one-page format, but that just wasn't enough room to write stuff down. I don't have quite enough appointments, generally, to fill up my calendar, but I'd rather have a little too much room than not enough!
|This was taken before I wrote everything in for October. Look how nice and clean the month looks! <Sigh> It's much messier now.|
And, because I love you and I had to make calendar pages for myself anyway...
These pages include Calendar-on-Two pages for the 2015 Calendar Year. There are two styles to choose from- I messed around with both fonts before choosing one.
A note about printing: I use a small format binder (or Desk size, or A5 size- it uses 5.5" x 8.5" pages). I do not print these pages two-sided. I like having the back sides blank to add notes or doodles, to tape papers on, or just about anything. I then cut the pages in half down the middle and hole punch them. If you have a larger binder (a standard 8.5"x11"), you could still use these if you hole punch at the top of the page, but you'll have that gutter area in the middle.
Here's the first style:
