This year, like every year, I have some big plans to stay organized. I love technology and I love going paperless. However, the truth is sometimes I just need a pen and paper to really get my mind and myself ready.
Every year I buy a planner. Every January the planner is packed full. Then by April *cough* February *cough* it’s completely empty, wasting away and collecting dust. Dallas and I have a strict budget for 2017. There is no wiggle room at all. I will be taking an unpaid maternity leave when Gemma arrives and we pay for his schooling without taking out loans. We are on the very long road to being debt free… So finances are IMPORTANT.
That being said I can not justify spending $20 (or really even $5) on a planner that the past has proved I will not use the whole year. So I came up with a solution!
There are so many talented people who are so generous with things like calendars, planners, goal lists, habit trackers, meal plans, finance trackers and the like. I’ve spent hours browsing through so many cute and FREE options to help get 2017 started in a productive and organized way. The great thing is, if I slip up for a month or two I can just dust myself off and print out a new copy and start over. It’s perfect for me and I’m sure it’s a great solution for a lot of you out there as well!
So without further ado here are some of my favorite FREE organizational printables to help us through 2017:
