FREE Minimalist Versatile Daily Planner Printables

Before settling for bullet journaling, I went on trying every single planning system I came across. I tried doing it monthly, weekly, daily, hour-to-hour, and any other combinations I could make out of them. I purchased different notebooks, planners, and journals. And while some of them are really great, I came to the conclusion that when it comes to planners, there’s no one-size-fits-all, and my size is particularly an awkward in-between one. (Or maybe I’m like a person with a right feet one size bigger than the left so while the shoes out there are perfect, I still need to craft my own. Well, you get my point.)

So, partly for that reason and partly for the joy of the creative process, I decided to create my own daily planner. Even when I have the total freedom to create my own system from scratch, I went through quite a long (and exciting!) process of finding out my needs and coming up with a way to cater to my every needs. I have created more versions than I can name (one can only have so many ver1.5.x.x before losing count). I print them out and try using the pages for a few weeks and make some notes from the substantial ones (add “Expenses” section!) to more trivial ones (square too big?) and revise and revise and revise. It sounds like so much trouble but I did have fun!

Mind you, I am not in any way a design or Photoshop expert. I’m learning it by doing and by my own errors so if I can do it, I’m sure you can, too.

So, here it is; still not perfect, but I decided to acknowledge my passion and efforts in creating this by sharing with you. As I said, I create this for me so if you don’t think this is for you, I encourage you to create your own! (If you don’t want to start from scratch, I’m offering you my .psd file. Contact me to get it for free!)

Tips: This free daily printable looks great printed in any size (A4, A5, or even smaller). I use it in A6 because my handwriting is rather small.

As you can see, my day ended early at 9 pm – because I need that 8 hours of sleep and so do you!

Features “habits” and “expenses” on the right bar. I find the habits section very useful to track habits, but I realize it can be too tiring and repetitive to write down your desired habits every single day. However, I found that writing it down can be useful to remind yourself of the desired behaviors. Even so, you can always opt for codes to represent a particular habit. I even use stickers or washi tape at some point (book sticker for reading, shoes sticker for running, etc.). Use it however you want, really!

The “Exercise” section can be used to track time spent doing any particular activity. I have used it to track time I spent exercising, practicing piano, even reading. Note that you can always contact me to get your .psd file and edit the sheet.

I made this version when I decided to learn Dutch (yeah, that went to the gutter). I aim for at least four words per day, while also learning from other platforms. I came up with a way to integrate it into my planning/journaling system. Later, I also used the section to write down new English words. But you can use it however you want. New terms you learn, articles you read, new songs you like, anything.

  1. I love making planners but I find it so hard to stick to them. I start off with the best intentions and then I just drop it. The funny thing is, I have tons of lists and I write on scrap sheets of paper everywhere. I don’t know why I can’t keep a planner. These are lovely!

  2. I love planners, and I started a bullet journal for 2017! It is the planner in me to know everything that happens and when it happens! Planning allows me to stay on top of things and to not get so frazzled if I do happen to miss a detail

  3. This is so awesome! I love that you created your own planner pages. So creative and personal to your own writing needs. I’ve yet to try bullet journaling like the other comments mention and I have a feeling I’d love it too. Keep it up and never stop creating!

  4. I love how clean and straight forward your pages are! I hate ones that are too cluttered, or require me to write WAY more than I normally do just to fill the page. This has inspired me to make my own planner pages! I LIVE on to-do lists, so maybe I can do a daily to-do list page for my a5 planner. Thanks for the idea!
