Happy new year everyone! To make sure that you start your new year the right way I wanted to inspire you guys to make your own planner! When I wanted to start planning (aka first year of university) I didn’t know where to start because there were so many different types of planners out there. I decided to make my own planner a few years ago and today I wanted to help you guys create yours.
Today I’ll explain you how to make your planner from scratch! You can choose to use a binder as a planner or if you only want to learn how to make printables skip number 1.
1 Choose a binder.
I bought a clear A5 binder because it was easy and quite minimalistic. They’re also durable and come in many different colors and patterns. The best part about these is that you can reuse them instead of buying a new planner every year. Mine looks a bit worn out but that’s because I’ve been using it for quite a while now!
I’ve tried using different types of printables but I never managed to keep everything in order. I printed out my class schedule on A5 paper and used that as my planner. Even though it’s not the prettiest planner layout, it’s honestly very convenient.
If however you have some spare time on your hands, make your own printables. It does take quite some time, but they will be completely to your liking.
To help you out I found this video from Mariana who made planner printables on Word. There are a lot of other videos out there so you can always check those out too!
3 Page dividers
I ended up finding some clear page dividers at home and I used these for my own planner but if you love getting creative you can follow the instructions in this video.
I hope you enjoyed this article. Let me know if you’ve made your own planner or just bought one in the comments down below!
Lots of love
