The planning "matrix" spread (New addition)

This post is a long time overdue.  Life keeps happening and it seems like it's not planning on slowing down anytime soon.

Ladies,  I am SO very excited to have added a great new layout for the planners this next year.  This new spread will be featured in ALL of the planners and I really think it's going to fit a lot of our different needs, styles and wants.  I made up some mock versions of this spread, my husband likes to call it "the matrix" spread.  It's so very versatile and can be customized to fit our heart's desire.

So, let's get this party started.

Here is the new spread that will be included in ALL of the planners from here on out.  It is so simple, but so useful at the same time.  This page will act as a bonus calendaring spread where you can zone in and focus on whatever specific thing you need or want.  I have come up with a few different samples and ways this spread can be used.  I just printed these out on my own home printer to save time with writing it all out so this isn't my actual handwriting, though I wish it was.  But it gives you a good idea of all of the different options you have using this particular spread.

The way I show it here is divided up into weekly shopping lists for groceries.








So exciting right, but JUST WAIT!!!!

Here are some different examples:

Here it is divided up on the right hand side into grocery categories





Divided by Grocery Store



 Here is a Menu Plan and Different lists like Exercise, Snacks, Scripture Study, Work, etc.



 Housework is the main focus on the schedule here, with Exercise, Snacks, Scriptures, Work on the other lists.  It really is all about what YOU want to focus on.



 The main focus here is Work Scheduling.  Ideal for the WAHM.  On the other side are lists of the menu plans for each week.



 Again, Menu planning with some other personal goals on the side.  Self, Calling, Home & Health



 Housework and Work Plans on this spread will help keep you on track with your busy life



 Health and Fitness is the main focus here with other self improvement goals on the side.  It's so versatile.



As you can see, the sky is the limit with this planning spread.  You could do sports schedule's, music lessons, Reading schedule, Church Calling or Activities, Bill Scheduling, Homework Assignments, You name it.

On the weeks where there are 5 weeks for the month, the list gets an extra page for the 4 columns and there is still 2 lists on the spread.  SO cool.

I hope you guys are as excited about this new addition to the planners as I am.

Planners are available for PRE-ORDER right now in the store. Academic planners will be delivered in July and the 2016 planners with be delivered in early fall.

  4. Can you please just sell the planner as a refill. You won't have to bind. I'd love to use it in my planner binder I already have. I love your planner format and style, just prefer it in my planner binder. Yearly planner refill preferred.

  5. What kind of pens do you recommend for use with this planner paper? This year I used gel pens and they take FOREVER to dry! I color code items for my family, so I need at least 7 different colors. Thanks for any input you can give!

  6. I just got my 2016 planner - my first ever from you. I AM BONKERS ABOUT IT!!!! My daughter, age 13, says she wants one as soon as she turns 18 (in order to take advantage of all the grown-uppy pages). Have you considered an LDS planner for young women? Personal progress tracking, For the Strength of Youth focuses, homework, talent development, social, family time, extra-curricular... You can see I think you are Wonder Woman and can whip this out anytime ;-) We would buy them for our youth every year if you decide to do one. Thanks for an incredible product! Oh, and I love the stickers!
