Plan Books

I know this is silly, but I really enjoy planning and using my plan book. I've had a few during my career that I just can't get into and few I don't like because they're boring.

I really love my Erin Condren Life Planner and know she makes a teacher plan book, but it's expensive ($50) and I am hesitant to fork over that amount of money for something my school will give me for free (though the one they provide is really boring).

Seriously, how adorable is this?!

So, while reading other blogs, and searching for things on Pinterest and Etsy, I've been toying with the idea of making my own. I don't know if I should use a binder (I am in love with them) or if I should make my own and bind it. I already use binders for so much at school it seems like a no-brainer, but I also like the portability of a simple spiral bound planner.

What do you use? Did you make your own? What program(s) did you use? Do you have coupons for Erin Condren's stuff?!  :)


  1. I made my own and bound it last year. This year I was thinking of getting a 1/2 in binder.

    1. I have a binder to keep all of the current units we are working on, and I keep my planner with it. Two years ago I kept it IN the binder and it was just too cumbersome. What program did you use to make it? Do you happen to have pictures?
