2020 Update to Daily Pages
These pages have been updated so they will not look exactly like those shown here.

Why Daily Pages?
For years now, I have been purchasing planners and personally, I never found one that ‘fit’ me perfectly. So, not long ago, I started making my own planner pages.
In my first attempt, I used a regular-sized binder. As the year went on, I was not getting along with it anymore. It was just taking up too much space on my desk. Plus it was wasting more paper especially on days that I didn’t have much going on.
Eventually, I made the switch to mini planners which were perfect…except that I wanted more than my daily pages in it. I wanted a menu planner, my finances pages, homeschooling records, etc…. I realized I couldn’t fit it all in my little planner if I expected a whole year’s worth of daily pages.
As a result, I came up with perpetual daily pages that I can print out as I need them. Plus, they come with four days to a page when you print front to back saving paper.
Now, my planner is able to hold two month’s worth of daily pages, a menu planner, household finance pages, homeschooling records, etc. As each week goes by I remove a week’s worth from the front of my binder and toss them.
Now, before you click and print your free daily pages, you might want to make sure you have the supplies you need to put yours together.
Many of these are optional and I give alternatives in parenthesis, but they make putting together and maintaining your mini planner much easier.
Materials and Supplies
Below I’ve listed some materials and supplies for your planner. As you get to know your planner, you can later add things to make it more functional for you. See some of my Amazon suggestions below as well.
- mini binder (must accommodate 5.5″ x 8.5″ sheet)–see binders below
- hole puncher (note: some binders come with 3, 6, and more rings)
- paper cutter
Printing Your Daily Pages
- When printing your pages, remember that you can print them back and front giving you four days total per page.
- Another way to save paper is to use the back of scrap paper. I usually have a pile around the house for my boys to use for schoolwork. If your printer is not very sensitive, you can ‘feed’ it scrap paper and use the backs for your planner pages. (P.S.–some of my scrap paper comes from junk mail letters).
- You could go the waste-free way: print one page (4 days) and re-use the one page over and over by writing in pencil. As you complete your tasks or goals, erase them instead of crossing them out. This way you’ll have an empty page (hopefully) at the end of the day ready for next day.
How I Use My Daily Pages
Below is an example of how I use my daily pages. Under goals, there is a space so that you can fill it with the type of goal you are working on. These can be fitness goals, financial goals, reading goals, or just plain old ‘me’ time activities.
For your daily list, there is a small space you can use for a checkmark or time. For the bottom categories, I just use a highlighter when I’ve completed that task.
