Today I have released a doodled annual calendar for 2021 so that you can get ready for all your planning for the upcoming year.
You'll have two choices to choose from:
1) a doodled annual calendar which is set up with a Sun-through-Sat week and/or
2) a doodled annual calendar that is set up with a Mon-through-Sun week and was specifically created for Erin Condren and Happy Planner users; however, of course, it can be used as a reference for project life fans as well as regular personal and work planning.
Ideally, you can use your calendar by referring to each week during your planning time and planning out your weekly to do's. You might have developed the habit of taking at least 20 minutes every Sunday evening to view the week's upcoming tasks and to do's on your to-do list.
If not, now's the time to develop that habit for the new year especially if “being more productive” or “using my time wisely” will be one of your New Year's resolutions
Using your Annual Calendar
I designed this organization/planner freebie in order to get a bird's eye view of the year all on one page and decorated it with a variety of doodles. The font for the calendar is Arial and a vintage American Typewriter font for the headers , the week format is Sunday through Saturday and the weekends are light grey. I have provided two annual calendar printables, one regular and one with the week's number on the left hand side. You can reduce the printable in order to fit most planners, if you would like to use them as an insert.
You can use the calendar to refer to as you plan your week or for other purposes.
Planning Your Week
I also designed the following printable to use as a brain dump to provide you a “worksheet” to gather or place all your tasks for the upcoming week. It's sort of a pre-planning sheet or a place to list all your “to do's” and then commit them to a specific day.
It isn't a necessary step, but I find it helpful to write up all my tasks, then allocate the day of the week I will post them in my planner. If I don't get to all of the tasks, at least I can pick from the “top three” tasks for each day and feel I have been productive.
Here's a sample of that weekly planner page. You can click on the image to access that printable as well.
Choosing Your Planner
Your planner choice will be a very personal one ( if you are not using one already) and there are many variables that will contribute to your decision. I will go through some of those variables in future posts. This year I went hog wild and ordered the “Hello Kitty” Erin Condren Life Planner with a variety of accessories; but, I didn't order soon enough and it is on it's shipping journey. With the Covid restrictions, the shipping and handling is taking a little longer, so there is that. Come to think of it, I should have factored that in…keep that in mind if you are thinking of ordering one. Meanwhile, I have ordered my Classic Happy Planner for this year.
For your information, since I do provide many of my own Erin Condren printable designs on this blog, I wanted to show you a sample layout for last year's “new” redesigned Erin Condren interior pages. Due to copyright issues, this is just a similar design of Erin Condren's “new” redesigned layout but not an exact one. This gives you an idea of how one of your pages might be laid out as you list your tasks. I've taken some of the tasks from a winter bucket list, I previously provided.
In addition, I have a board on Pinterest you might want to follow that has several ideas by other designers for Home Office Planning , stationery and Erin Condren Life Planner, Happy Planner, and other types of planner needs. You can view that board here, Home Office | Planners & Stationery Favs.
Facts about the freebie:
- These free printables were designed on an 8 1/2″ by 11″ pdf file.
- File size: 816KB & 847KB
- These elements were created at 300 dpi, so your printing results should be very clear and sharp.
- Printing tip: I would adjust the printing quality on your printer in order that you do not get an excessive amount of ink saturation. Just a tip, if you plan to use regular office paper as this freebie is at 300 dpi and you may need to adjust as you print.
- Color scheme: black, white, dark grey
