What's the Plan, Stan?

Now that the year is in full swing, I think it's safe to say we all need a little stability in our lives. It's incredible how I live my life in pure, ignorant bliss all Summer, pinning my little life away & storing up ideas that are SURE to make my life a dream come back-to-school time. Then, reality hits. And unfortunately, those perfect little boxed up ideas that looked great on paper (err, my computer screen) are NOT HAPPENING. Real life is tough, man.

My search for the perfect planning template has gone a little like my summer "planning." I find and pin about 10 a week, only to return to them to find that, while pretty, they do me no good. The ratio of cute:practical I have found is somewhere in the neighborhood of 1,000,000,000:1. So, there's that.

Then, I found it. Here she is, folks:








This little gem was shared by teaching guru Cara Carroll over at The First Grade Parade, and adapted by yours truly and I am pretty much in love. Here's why I like LOVE it:

1. It's simple
2. I can see the entire week at a glance
3. It is organized
4. It makes sense!

Cara posted this sometime last year, and boy, talk about a GAME CHANGER. I staple the whole pack together and use the back of the last page for my To-Do list. I know, I'm fancy. 

She just recently posted a newer template, but I still like this one. I have a feeling I won't be straying from this little guy for quite some time. You can grab the editable version here!*

Happy planning, ladies & gents!

*I kept the fonts in the editable version basic so they would translate nicely onto all of your screens. Feel free to change the fonts around like I did in the examples above, because let's be honest---life is more fun with cute fonts! (I used Hello Kelly from here and Happy Solid from here).
