Direct Sales Planner – EDITABLE

I had so much fun creating this Direct Sales Planner. I’ve tried to think of everything so you don’t have to! There will probably be more pages than you need but you can mix and match and choose which pages work best for you.

This planner is great if you’re just starting out in direct sales or are a pro! Below are some of the 150 pages included in this set (I cannot show previews of all pages as some people have copied pages from my other planner sets).

I have also designed a new half-size weekly layout that allows more room to write with the days going across the page than the columns like the letter size (full size) planner style.

I hope you guys like this new planner style as much as I enjoyed creating it 🙂

If you’re concerned about using up printer ink you could have the files printed at your local office supply store (send me a convo via etsy and I will give you a print release) the chevron and stripes patterns also print nicely in greyscale.

Printing instructions are included. Before printing you will need to pre-cut letter size paper in half (most office supply stores will do this for you if you don”t have a paper trimmer, you can also buy pre-cut paper reams)

Items for sale – saving costs by hosting a joint garage sale? Use this sheet to keep track of all items for sale, who their owner is, the asking price, sale price and notes e.g. pickup times if a customer is collecting furniture at a later date. You could pre-enter the items you have for sale, or jot down each item as it sells. Another idea would be to use one sheet per table or box e.g. clothing on one page, print another page for books ect.

Hosting a garage sale printable

Some of my top tips for hosting a garage sale

– Set up early

– Print the flyers onto bright coloured paper to attract attention. Of course black and white still stands out too

– Allocate boxes with prices e.g. $1 and put all items for that price point in the box. When all items are sorted, then add the price stickers. Having items sorted by price into separate boxes or on separate tables and also with a price makes it so much easier when it comes time for your customer to pay and if you can’t remember what box they took the item from

– Price stuff so it’s easy to make change e.g. in 10c or 50c denominations

– Make it easy for shoppers to test electronics by having an extension cord handy. You may also want to keep some batteries on hand

– Mark down items throughout the day

– Some stuff you just know no one is going to buy e.g. broken toys. I put these on a separate table and mark them as free

– Put big ticket items like furniture at the end of the driveway to draw in shoppers

– Never leave the money box unattended!

 

Here are the free printable price stickers! They coordinate with the garage sale planner colour options. ‘Cause I have OCD when it comes to stuff colour-co-ordinating. To use, print into full sheet label paper and cut. I recommend using a paper trimmer. Or watching your favourite TV show if you are cutting them by hand!

My 2015 Printable Rainbow Daily Planner

Today I’d like to introduce my new daily planner!

Please excuse the poor quality photos – the colours are actually much brighter in person!

rainbow planner cover 1

I. Am. OBSESSED with it! I created the whole planner from scratch (well, except the arc notebook I used to assemble it of course). The planner pages are 8.5 x 11″ in size. I know a lot of people prefer the smaller planner sizes but portability and compactibility isn’t an issue for me as I carry a large handbag. I’ll discuss printing options if you’d like to use the pages in an A5, half size or filofax planner at the bottom of this post.

One of the most important things about a planner is its’ pretty cover page! I am OBSESSED with pretty cover pages. Every binder I use has to have a cover page. I created one cover for the planner then came up with ideas for another cover. And another one. I ended up with about 15 covers before I finally gained some self-control. I get bored with covers easily so I intend to use a different one each month. This is the one I am currently using:

Rainbow Planner AllAboutTheHouse

I’ve listed all the other covers in my Etsy shop if you’re a cover addict like me. These covers are personalised with your monogram and/or other wording that you would like. Due to customisation these are sent within 48hours of your purchase.

Let’s take a tour of my planner!

After the cover page is the ‘this belongs to page’ in case my planner ever gets lost.

Followed by the 2014 and 2015 dates at a glance pages (with space tor record those new years resolutions/goals that I’m going to try and accomplish)

I forget to take photos of these pages in my assembled planner.

2015 Calendar

2015 Calendar Printable

Then the ‘special dates’ page where I list national holidays for 2014 , 2015 and 2016. This sheet is not pre-filled so you could live anywhere in the world and still use this planner! I live in Australia which is why this page is not pre-filled with American holidays. You can find a summary of national holidays relevant to your country on this website

Important dates where I list birthday’s, anniversaries ect. You could also use it for annual planning.

This is the weekly spread that I personally use. I am obsessed with lists so this layout has been working perfectly for me!

The ‘simple‘ version where you can make it your own e.g. add lines across the page to separate each column into boxes to separate things like school, work, social, reminders, meal planning ect. Or just keep the columns blank with lots of open-ended writing space

Rainbow simple planner

For those who prefer to have one page for each day:

Daily Planner 2014 2015

Daily planner printable

I also have an undated (and editable!) version. I use this on days where I need to get a lot done and I want to map out exactly how I will use my time. I call this the ‘schedule’ planning method (rather than the open-ended weekly pages). There are 2 lines beside each hour – one line per 30 minutes of the day. I print a few off and keep them at the back of the planner then transfer them to the current week when I need them.

Rainbow daily undated

Wondering what that un-labelled box is for? Anything! After designing and using many daily planners I have found that I needed a section that was flexible. Some days I use this box to record my exercise plan, on other days I use it for reminders or calls I need to make. I also like having a large notes section so I can jot down messages when I’m on the phone. I used to scramble around for a piece of paper which I then couldn’t find a few days later. This way I can keep everything in order 🙂 The meals box is big enough to plan all daily meals or just dinner and a few things I need to pick up from the store on my way home.

After all the months, I include extra notes pages as well as pages you can purchase separately from the ‘Extra’s package.’ I store these pages behind the ‘Miscellaneous’ divider (which comes with the planner).

Calendar stickers

I LOVE calendar stickers but they are very hard to find in Australia so I made my own. Because I am obsessed with things being coordinated I used the same colours as the rainbow stripe pattern on the planner. I made my own template in photoshop and printed the 6 sheets onto full sheet 8.5 x 11″ label paper then cut using a guillotine (you could also use a paper trimmer or scissors). I keep them in a clip top bag in the ziplock pouch I also purchased for the back of the planner.

Still quite pretty!

HOW I ORGANISE MY PLANNER

1. Colour code. I write everything in my planner in black pen. I don’t use a special brand of pen. I use cheap ones from discount stores like the Reject Shop and Crazy Clark’s. I live in Australia so I don’t have access to Walmart :(. I then highlight each ‘thing’ in my planner in a different colour. For example: yellow is Etsy, pink is personal, green is appointments and social events, purple is to do’s, orange is family and light blue is finances. When I was in school I used to use different colours for homework, assessment due dates ect.

2. Calendar Stickers (which I mentioned above). They’re rainbow and co-ordinate with my planner – nuff said 🙂

HOW I USE MY PLANNER

1. I write things like when bills are due in the monthly view. I also note any appointments and social events. I try to minimise what I write in the monthly view to prevent it from being over-cluttered. One of the reasons I use a full-size planner is because of the large writing space in the monthly view. I have used smaller planners before and found I filled the little boxes too quickly. I also cannot stand trying to write something into a planner and not having the page to lean my hand against as I enter a task (hopefully you understand what I mean, I know I didn’t explain that very clearly :/)

2. The weekly views show each day in more detail. Occasionally I review my ‘master’ to do list which I keep in my lists book. I shared some pictures of it at the bottom of this post. Basically I printed off all the sheets from my lists kit and bound them into a notebook.

Anyway, in the lists book I have monthly to do lists. At the start of the year I list things I’d like to complete for each month (personal, work – everything) and stop about 5 lines short of the bottom of the page (gotta keep room for ideas that pop up throughout the year!) Each month I pick out the main to do’s and fill the first monthly to do list column in the planner (on the monthly planning page).  I keep the second column free for to do’s I think of throughout the month. So basically the lists book is a ‘reference’ and my planner summarises those lists.

I’ll pick a few of the monthly to do’s in my planner that I feel are the highest priority. I transfer tasks that need to occur to complete each of those to do’s to the weekly pages of my planner. For example, if I am working on a new planner set then I will break the planner down into smaller to do’s and allocate those throughout the weeks of the month. I write these steps in the unlined section of each day. I keep the checklists for routine tasks such as laundry, grocery shopping, emptying the dishwasher, de-cluttering ect.

The reason I love the layout of the weekly pages is because they are simple, uncluttered, flexible and don’t have too much colour. I do love a bit of colour (hence the rainbow stripe), but because I highlight/colour-code my planner I kept it to black only below the pattern. I don’t like planners that include mini monthly views on each weekly spread as I find this a massive waste of space. I rarely need to know what day a certain date falls on and if I do I have the monthly summary pages and the dates at a glance places to refer to.

I do use tabs as you can see in the pictures. I purchased these from Staples. They were pre hole punched for a 3 ring binder but I punched over the top – they are made of a plastic-like material so they still stay in place in the Arc notebook. I am on the lookout for nicer tabs because I’d prefer them to be thicker like cardstock. If anyone knows of any good tabs please let me know!

So that’s my planner! If anyone has any questions or comments I’d love to hear from you 🙂

***PRINTING YOUR PLANNER***

The pages are 8.5 x 11″ in size. They will work with printers that CAN do duplex printing and also printers that CANNOT do duplex printing. Detailed printing instructions are included in your purchase. As all printers are different, I cannot offer technical support for printing. No refunds will be made if you are unable to print the pages due to your printer having different settings than shown in the example/if you do not know how to use your printer. If you are having problems printing your planner at home, I recommend printing at your local office supply store.

If you want to use the pages in an A5/Filofax/half size planner you can by using ‘2 per page’ or ‘multiple’ print settings and then cut the 8.5 x 11″ sheet in half. However, they will be single-sided.

If you would like to use the planner pages in a personal or smaller than half size planner I do not recommend doing this. You can print any page at any size (smaller than 8.5 x 11″). See this post on printing tips for instructions (tip 2). The reason I do not recommend this is because you will need to cut every sheet down to size.

As a side note – a coupon is included in the printing instructions document which you can use on all future purchases until the end of 2015!

***PLANNER SOURCE LIST***

Home & Inventories – Household Binder

I recently added another section to my household binder – Home & Inventories

Home & Inventories - AllAboutTheHouse(4)

Home & Inventories - AllAboutTheHouse(5)

Home & Inventories - AllAboutTheHouse(6)

This set includes 42 EDITABLE pages:
– 2 Binder cover and spines (Home & Inventories, Warranties & Manuals) – Spines come in 3 sizes to suit any binder
– Car Maintenance Checklist (2 pages)
– Appliances Index
– Home Maintenance
– Home Projects List
– Home Projects Planner
– Home Repair Log

– Fridge inventory
– Movie Inventory
– Book Inventory
– Electronics Inventory

I keep the appliance index and electronics inventory sheets in a separate binder with the ‘warranties and manuals’ cover in the front of the binder. I use plastic sleeves to store the manuals and place them in the same order as I list them within the appliance index and electronic inventories so I can find them easily when needed.

Appliances Index - Green

Electronics Inventory - AllAboutTheHouse

Warranties & Manuals - Cover and Spine - Green(2)

There are pantry, fridge and freezer inventories in this set. They have been updated since I created the meal planning section of my household binder. I use a combination of both. The ones in this set have space to record use-by dates which I needed for foods I use less often.

For the bathroom, cleaning supplies and household products inventories, I record the item and tally mark the number purchased (in) and the number used (out). I used to use checkboxes but found I filled the sheet too quickly.

I keep the cleaning supplies inventory blue-tacked to the inside of the laundry cupboard. The bathroom inventory is blue-tacked to the inside of the bathroom sink cupboard.

Bathroom Inventory - AllAboutTheHouse

The office supplies inventory keeps a stationery hoarder like myself in line. I know what I actually NEED to buy by keeping track of what I have on hand and what I have used. Again, I use tally marks to keep track.

Office Supplies Inventory-AllAboutTheHouse

Garage Inventory – don’t let the boxes of junk pile up! I’ll admit that I have a few boxes in my garage (such as ones that store Christmas decorations) . I use this sheet to record what’s in each of them. E.g, ‘Christmas Tree Ornaments, quantity 2, boxes in the far right hand corner’ so I know exactly where it is and don’t need to lift heavy boxes trying to find them. You could also use this if you have a lot of tools.

Movie Inventory – there are 3 pages with 2 columns on each categorizing the alphabet from A-Z
