Now my current position has required that I stay with a planner for it's lifespan so I feel like I'm married to each planner when I buy it and this causes me to spend a considerable amount of time deciding just which planner to "walk down the aisle with." (pun completely intended!!)
Back in May I was in a bit of a predicament, I bought a planner but didn't love it, bought another one and gave it away. I couldn't commit, I knew I would be spending the next 12-13 months of my life with my choice and I couldn't do it. Sometimes I question how I ever got married. So I decided I'd search for a DIY printable planner that I could fall in love with and download. Pipe Dreams, that is all it was, I could not find what I wanted. So I took to Photoshop and made my own.

Now I'm approaching December and I only made the planner above for June-December so I decided I would be proactive. I would start early so I could search and research the hell out of planners until I found Mr. Right. In my mind if I start early enough I will find what I want and I will commit, so far that is only in my mind. I have spent numerous hours trying to figure out just what planner I'm going to spend 2016 with, I got some help from Kayse Pratt after I read her post an Ultimate Planner Review. I really love the Simplified Planner by Emily Ley but my frugal heart needed CPR after I saw the price. This was the same problem I faced when starting to fall in love with the Erin Condren's Life Planner. No matter how gorgeous these planners are I could not pull the trigger, I know a ton of work goes into these planners but I couldn't (at least right now) spend upwards of $50 on a planner. I was also still caught between do I want a daily planner or weekly planner? See told you I can't commit. So I have once again gone to the drawing board using my trusty friend Photoshop and have designed one option in a few colors. I'll post them below and you can help your self to them. I felt like I had to accomplish something so I went with a generic (in terms of the date) because I'm such a commitment failure I couldn't even commit to making them for the full year. Sad Day Huh!
