If you don’t know this about me yet, I love paper planners. I fell in love with planners in high school all those years ago and since then I am carrying a planner in my bag. I love how popular planners have become these days; that means it’s normal again for an adult to be a bit obsessed with planners, stationery, and different color pens.
Anyways, the year is almost over and that means I am going to be switching to a new planner soon. It’s shiny and new and waiting for me already. This year I have chosen a vertical style of planner for the first time ever. So far, I have only ever used the horizontal.
I decided I cannot wait for 2.5 weeks to start using one, so I created a printable letter-sized version that I can start using right away and get used to the vertical layout (excuse valid enough? no? ah, whatever, let’s say I just can’t wait).
I’d like to share this printable with you. I thought, maybe, it is also hard for you to choose vertical vs horizontal planner, or maybe you prefer the horizontal layout and want an extra printable, or, like me, you just can’t wait. Whatever your reasons are, I hope it helps you stay more organized.
This week file is available for download for everyone here.
From next week on it will only be accessible through the library, open for subscribers only.
If you are new to vertical planners like was a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to talk a bit about those different rectangles on this print. Every vertical day consists of 3 pink rectangles. Some people choose to use them for mornings, day and nights, which is awesome if you have long scheduled days. My personal days are scheduled, but I like being flexible, and that can turn schedules upside down sometimes. So I use them for work, non-work tasks and personal or family events. And this is what I love most about vertical planning. You could also use them to separate your priorities, or anything else really. The gray areas you can use to add extra notes. I use the vertical gray areas to note larger projects I am working on or master task lists. The bottom gray rectangle I use for notes that don’t fit anywhere else.
If you love vertical planning, leave me a comment on how you section your days. Show off this printable in use on your Instagram and tag me @gypseeart and #gypseetribe, and I’ll be happy to take a look and give you a shout out.
