Does anybody else get satisfaction out of having their week planned out? Just the act of writing what I’m doing, who is coming and going, and the tasks that I want to get done makes me feel on top of things! The desire to get organized intensifies in January, which is why I release a free productivity-boosting printable around this time every year. 2019’s addition? The gorgeous Watercolor Weekly Planner!
About This Printable Weekly Planner
This simple planner was hand-drawn using the watercolor calligraphy technique. Blue and green hues work together to make a beautiful color combination! The flourishes in this piece were inspired by vintage typography ads from the late 19th century.
I chose to complement the vintage design elements with a very modern calligraphy style — the Kaitlin. The whimsical, all-lowercase calligraphy lends some playfulness to the ornate design!
How to Use the Printable Weekly Planner
You can use this printable weekly planner in the way that best helps you to stay organized! I would recommend printing off a copy every Sunday and taking an hour or so to fill the planner out for the upcoming week. That way, you start off each week nice and centered!
When I fill out this planner, I like to put my tasks on the left — complete with boxes to check. On the right, I write things to remember: visitors who are coming, things to remember, and birthdays.
Analog Versus Digital Scheduling
I have tried a lot of different planning and organization systems, and I have to say that writing everything down is what works the best for me. Yes, Google Calendar (and similar programs) can be a godsend with their digital notifications, but there’s just something about writing things down that helps them to stick in my mind! If you feel the same way, then I know that you’ll love this weekly planner.
One thing I love about this printable versus the others that I’ve seen online? It’s unique and artistic. It doesn’t have a computer-generated look, which makes it stand out from the crowd. You’ll enjoy filling it out, and you’ll love the way it looks once it’s got all your tasks and plans on it!
Getting Organized for the New Year
This time last year, I wrote a super thorough and inspirational post over how to make effective New Year’s resolutions. If you didn’t catch that, definitely check it out by clicking here! Then, download, print, and fill out one of TPK’s artistic goal sheets. The flourished printable goal sheet — shown below — is my favorite!
Once you fill out your goal sheet, use your weekly planner to schedule a couple of tasks that will help you to move forward in your aspirations! There’s no better way to achieve your goals than by taking it one day at a time. After all, your days are building blocks for big accomplishments!
I hope that you have a Happy New Year and that you enjoy today’s free weekly planner. Again, you can find it by clicking here! Enjoy the holiday, and I’ll catch you in 2020!
