A few years ago, I decided I wanted a planner that was full-sized, as in, each page was a full sheet of paper. I couldn’t find what I wanted, and ended up making my own. As with most things I make, I shared it here.
I’ve been making a new one each year since, and I love each one a little more than the last. And as you can see, I actually got it finished early this year instead of at the last minute!

One of the reasons I’ve really liked the last couple of years better than the previous is because I got smart and started buying the art from people far more talented at making it than I am. This year I went on a shopping spree at My Cute Lobster Designs.
If you want to print yourself some stickers to go in your planner, I recommend these flowers, these flowers, and this cute retro set. Of course, I also bought some for fall, Christmas, and this adorable sewing theme. You’ll probably see all of them pop up here in the months to come.
I print the pages themselves on 32 lb printer paper. I found it’s just the right weight, and doesn’t show through if you print double sided.
There are yearly calendar pages for 2019-2022. That file also contains the 2020 (with the flowers in a jar) seen on the front of my binder.
Personally, I like to plan weekly, so each month also has weekly pages.
Because I like being able to easily see a month all at once, I also include a monthly page. If you didn’t want the entire planner, those could be printed to use as a wall calendar.
There’s also a page for meal planning. On one side is a menu and the other is a shopping list. I use a serrated tracing wheel to make a perforated line so they can be separated.
That file contains two pages that are opposite each other, which you can print double-sided if you’d like. Be sure to punch the holes on the Menu side, so that can stay in your planner while you take the Shopping List side with you to the store.
The files are listed here separately so you can print what you need. Have fun getting organized for 2020!
