2008 and 2009 Week at a View Planner

This is a Word document, Classic page size, one week per page, Monday start.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Usage advice: 

It's in table format, with the days going down the page.

The dates and the lines (between the cell borders) are set to print in 70% gray as I don't like the strong contrast between the paper and full black. Also it doesn't show through to the other side of the paper. But this is editable in Word by changing the font color.

I set margins to .3 inches and print two pages to a sheet, cut the pages apart, and have the book spiral bound with extra pages and some photos, an envelope, etc.

I have the weekly calendar page on the left and the right-hand side (the back of next week) is left blank for notes. You could put the weekly calendar on the right if you prefer. If you don't need the note space you could print duplex. There are also lined notes pages at the end of the file that you could print onto the back of the calendar if you like the lines.

If you have it spiral bound you can get plastic covers bound in. With the normal plastic covers Office Depot has, the covers start getting ragged (corners break off, etc) around August. It's better to take some scrapbook paper or a photo to use as the front and back cover, and have them laminated before binding.

There are several planning pages at the end of the file for future years.

There is some word art (the word "Holiday") at the official holidays when banks and post offices are closed. You can delete this if desired -- it's all editable.

Email me or leave a comment if you have any questions. I hope it's useful, if for nothing else than a starting point.

Looks Great!

Another nice template for the gallery - thank you for sharing with all of us! I really like the Word Art too! :)


Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for and I've already customised it with my own 'logo' and events!

I didn't need anything fussy with appointment slots as this is for my own personal life nothing to do with business - and now I have it saved as my own template with custom bits it will be used for years and years to come.

You've saved me a fortune both in time and money (and given me happiness in not having to 'put up' with a shop bought one that didn't really work for me) and for all that, I am eternally grateful!!

Thank you so much!!

PS. Edited to say: and in a format that I understand!!

Thank you, BlueTiger!

I've wondered if anyone found it useful, and if the format worked for anyone else. That makes my day -- actually it makes my week!

Actually I'm sure the Open Office approach is excellent, but the learning curve, even with Doug's kit, is more than I want to deal with.

Thanks for your comment!


Thank you: I downloaded it yesterday

And I tweaked it.

A lot.

The first thing I did was take out the big numbers and the holiday graphics. Then I changed the font to Blue Highway. Then I translated the whole thing to French and I took out all the names of the holidays because they were American holidays. Then I changed the margins a bit and printed all the pages on the left page. On the reverse I printed grid note pages for the right pages. That way, it's closer to a Modo e Modo moleskine weekly planner. I smurfed the hole thing and added it to my circa classic planner.

And I love it.


You've made it yours! I'm glad it provided a starting point.



2009 Sunday start?

This is what I have been looking for, except that I am needing a Sunday start to match my monthly calendar. I've tried to tweak your template for a Sunday start, but really and repeatedly messed it up (not "gifted" computer-wise...) Can you help me?

Thanks for your contribution- I love this website and appreciate everyone sharing their creations and expertise!
