2015 Daily Planner FAQ's

I couldn't be more excited that the IHeart Organizing 2015 Daily Planner Printables are now available in my Etsy shop!

This is the third edition Daily Planner and I am thrilled with how far it has come!  It contains many of the same great features and layout as past versions, however, has evolved with a new color scheme, new pages with mini surprises and a whole new size option!  The IHeart Mini Planner!

That is right my friends!  You have been asking for a smaller version, and it is finally here!  The PDF printables are now available in standard letter sized 8.5" x 11" paper as well as new half page 5.5" x 8.5" pages!

I am not quite sure how to decide between the two!  Both are great for so many reasons and contain the same colors and layouts.

Just like past versions, you will have the option to select pages that contain a meal planning portion at the bottom of each daily page.  Planning our daily meals is much easier when I can work around our schedule and having it built into the planner has been such a time and money saver!

The new, smaller versions are perfect for portability!  Great for the mom always on the go or a student trying to juggle a busy social life!

Both sizes can be printed at home or at a local printing company, and can be utilized in an endless variety of binding options; most commonly enjoyed within a discbound notebook, three ring binder or spiral bound.

Both sizes are were designed with the same colors, layout  and options.  Shall we take a look inside?

2014's most popular personalized coversheets are back, with a variety of new options to select from as well!

The instant download PDF will welcome you with a fresh new introduction sheet!

This year I added a 2015 year at a glance page as well as a place to jot down your important details!

Each month is welcomed with a vibrant two page portrait calendar.  The calendar is pre-dated and each month contains a motivational sentiment.

The entire planner is pre-filled with dates from either August 2014 - Dec 2015 or Jan 2015 - Dec 2015, depending on which you select.

Each week comes dated, and spread across two colorful, portrait pages.  If you select the meal planning option, you can add in your daily meal plans.  For those who love to set goals for the week, there is a spot for that, and another for miscellaneous notes and reminders.

It is important to keep track of the important holidays, birthdays and anniversaries that come around year after year and the Special Dates printable is a great help with that task!  And I don't know about you, but I love and need to write things down.  The lined Notes pages at the back of the planner provide a place to jot down notes from phone calls, meetings or even all of those random ideas that come up during a busy day.  Both of these printables are now bundled within the entire 2015 planner kit!

Just like last year, you can snag all of these planner pages as an instant download file!  Wahoo!  No more waiting game!


FULL SIZE (8 1/2"x 11") PAGES

JUNIOR/HALF SIZE (5 1/2"x 8 1/2") PAGES

Here are some 2015 planner FAQ's:
  • I love the Martha Stewart Discbound Cover, I purchased it at Staples.  To use this system, I did invest in a special Discbound paper punch, which allows me to remove and replace pages as I wish {although I haven't personally tried it, a few readers have mentioned that this punch is less expensive}.  I love the versatility and flexibility that the system allows, as I can remove pages I no longer need, and punch in papers with important dates, such as travel itineraries and schedules for my boy's sporting events.  This is my third year using the cover and it has held up great to my daily use and love.  Other great options for binding include three ring binders {both large and small, I personally love binders from Target and Russell & Hazel} as well as having the pages spiral bound at a local office / printing shop.

    • The large planner is formatted to be printed on standard, letter sized 8 1/2" x 11" paper.  The intro page ensures that printable is easily printed duplex style {front and back}.  The small planner pages are formatted to be printed on 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" paper {half size of standard letter sheet}  

      • I prefer to use 100 bright, 32 lb paper from Amazon, which doesn't allow "show through" of the printer ink or my pens and really allows the printer ink to pop off of the pages.  I have found that this paper is less expensive, yet comparable to last year's favorite of 98 bright, 32 lb paper from Staples.

                • Because each and every printer is different, with different properties and functionality, it is nearly impossible for me to troubleshoot printer issues.  However, these pages print best when opened in Adobe Reader, sized to "Fit" .  The file also comes with a Print Release to allow you to take the file to any local print shop for printing as well as a few general tips for printing the pages. {Also, be sure to support locally owned print companies and public libraries, you may be surprised at their competitive pricing}.

                • I print my planners with my HP Laserjet printer.  I am an HP gal for life, and always recommend their printers.

                  • I currently do not offer these planners printed, bound and packaged; all sales are for digital PDF files only.
