College Map & Schedule

This is just a fairly quick form I put together to keep track of my college information, including a campus map, course schedule, and professors' contact information on one sheet. ODG and PDF files.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
prev.JPG
Usage advice: 

This is my first template, but I'm almost positive I got all of the bugs out of it. I couldn't find anything similar, so I made my own. There must be other students here that this could be useful to.

PDF: The first page is a map of my campus, so it isn't going to be of much use unless you attend Oklahoma State. Page 2, however, isn't campus specific. I've posted the pdf so those of you who don't have OOo can still use the course information sheet.

ODG: Obviously, you can and should replace the map of my campus with a map of yours. In fact, edit and chop to your hearts content. As long as there's no profit being made, I don't particularly care. If you change this into something new and interesting, I would like to see it though!

Daily Dairy, One page, Classic

My days are task and information heavy, with the occasional appointment. On my perpetual quest for the perfect planner, I was browsing the Paper Chase planners and notebooks at Borders when I came across their page per day diaries, a simple lined page with the date at the top that allows you to write whatever and however you want. Two days ago, a forum topic here led me to the Quo Vadis website which had a page per day diary format with a little bit of space for appointments. My first submission to DIYP is my attempt at both of those formats.

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

These are MS Word 2000 documents, so they should be easy to manipulate. I use a 0.6 inch margin on the hole punch side and a 0.4 inch margin on the free side. The top of the document is a two cell table so the date can be easily changed and it will still align properly. I spent an afternoon trying to learn OOo draw and using the widgets, but I never got the hang of it.

I'm still in the experimental stage with these, so I've only printed a week's worth. I suppose if I was going to do a lot of them I would just blank out the dates and handwrite them in later.

Q&D 2 page per day calendar

I use the 2-page system with simple scheduling & task lists on one page and a diary page on the other for various things, such as daily meeting notes. I've found the stuff on the site very interesting - but one of my frustrations has been trying to get calendar pages printed correctly. The Dynamic Templates app is pretty good, but personally I think it needs some refinement - after trying to make it print usable pages, I gave up & created this very simple page setup for a generic, undated calendar & diary page using OpenOffice's Calc (spreadsheet application).

It's black & white, and pretty plain looking - I'm printing on a B&W laser, so I didn't want color. However, it's easy enough to customize this, as well as editing the fields for time of day (my shift starts at 7AM). Granted, it's not very flashy - I also worked a bit with the DIY kit, but found it cumbersome to work with - but it does what it's supposed to do.

Feel free to customize it any way you see fit, and please upload any cool variations for others.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
daily calendar page.png
Usage advice: 

Note that this will print pages with the schedule on the right-hand page, while the diary is on the left. This works for me, but it's backwards from the Day Timer page I patterned this after.

[EDIT] If you want it the other way around, then I suggest adjusting the inner & outer columns. Notice that the image has the wider margins (1/2") on the outer edges of the page. If you make them smaller, and then make the center columns on either side of the cut line 1/2" wide, you should be good to go. The two 8-1/2" x 11" pages are created vertically (i.e. scroll down to see page 2) so your changes should reflect on both pages if you work with columns.

FYI, I made it 2 pages so I could easily do duplex printing.

Also, row height should be .25" all the way down.

Levenger Multitask Organizer - Junior

My recreation of the new Levenger Multitask Organizer - I wanted to see if I liked the format before paying for the official versions. Refills are in my approximation of Junior size (it's really just two halves of a Letter sized document, but that was close enough for me). Word does add an extra blank page that I can't seem to get rid of - so only print page 1.

Usage advice: 

Some solutions that this form may provide are: keeping your monthly and daily calendars cleaner, write or type the information one time per month, and simple analog frequency method. At the end of the month I evaluate what went well and what did not, keeping what I need and deleting what I do not. I hope that you may find it useful.

Power of Less Quick Guide

Usage advice: 

If you choose only One Goal to guide you through your work and personal life, you have a much greater chance of completing it. You can also get a lot more done if you stick to a few key tasks instead of a huge list every day.

Classic Chaos: Small Integrated Planner

Designed to be a homemakers companion, this small planner is powerful. It is a dated two page per week format with the schedule all on one page and a task list, notes, and project list opposite. There is also a section to plan evenings seperate from the daily schedule--thus allowing for scheduled family time or a night of comfort or romance with the spouce.

Also included:
Monthly tabs with calanders which track holidays, special days, and monthly tasks.
Menu Tabs plan everyday lunches and dinners by the week or gatherings by the event.

Classic Chaos is smaller than the original, Chaos Contained. It is more portable while still managing to fufill all the functionality required by a busy household.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
classic chaos.jpg
Usage advice: 

This is designed to be printed front and back onto 5.5x8.5" paper. I usually cut computer paper in half then print on the smaller sheets.

I use the left hand sheet to schedule my appointments.

The right sheet tracks all of the necessary tasks for the day and week. I can make a list of all my weekly projects (craft, cleaning, child education, etc...) or else use it as a shopping list in the upper right column. I often use the note section to remember special needs of family members and friends and my children's homework focus for the week.

I enjoy the evening planning section because it allows me to plan a movie, game, or talk with my spouce. I also plan runnover projects (alone time) or note evenings when I'll be out.

The menus are useful in two ways. First, I can plan out the week in advance and follow it. Or, I can just write down everything we eat for a week and THEN it becomes a menu. This is an invaluable tool for tracking what we 'really' eat. The leftover section can be used to note what needs to be eaten that week OR what leftovers will be comming from that week. I find it more useful to see what needs to be eaten, but I do have some menus that tell me what is likely to be leftover for the next week. Don't throw out full menu pages. Save them and recycle the week at a later time.

The formal menu section is useful for planning gatherings or nice family dinners. We try to have at least one NICE meal a month. This helps me to make sure the table is set and that the meal is perfect for the occasion.

2 pg weekly planner, Classic

Someone posted a DIY version of the Levenger Multi-tasker planner for us. I took that template and modified it to include a menu planner and space for weekly tasks/notes and a task list. I included a line at the top for the daily weather because that usually plays a part in my planning.

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

I've left some of my personal weekly check off tasks, and modified the ones I didn't want to share. That whole section can be removed and replaced with more lines for notes. This is an old MS Word file, so it should be easy enough to modify, including putting actual times in the appointment section if you prefer. It uses a lot of tables, the print preview function will show which lines don't actually show up when printing.

Running Project Inventory

It's a running project inventory with a place on the right for status updates and a check box on the left for completion.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
Project Inventory for Thumb.jpg
Usage advice: 

It's a running project inventory based off the work of others on the DIY site. I haven't decided what the "Key" might be for the status fields, but I figured it'd be easier to work off of a running inventory for a while before re-consolidating on a new list. You could use letters or symbols to indicate that the project has stalled, is awaiting approval, etc... It's in classic size, 2-up format in PDF, staggered for front/back printing. Play with it when you print it. Anytime I print 2-up PDFs front/back, I screw it up once... well, twice probably... Also, if you're going to edit in Inkscape or something, it's in Papyrus font.

Basic Book Review Schedule

This is a basic book review template, that I created, to keep track of books that are being reviewed, for whom they are being reviewed for, and when they are due, to help keep track of what is needed for each month.

Right now this is a very basic, to the point. It's 8.5 x 5.5 and meant to be something small and easy to use. It can be printed out for all the months, or enough to bind together to have a running record of books reviewed/when.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
Basic Book Review.gif
Usage advice: 

This can be printed double-sided to save paper, or printed individually to place in its respective month for a quick overview of that month.

This is to help keep track of books that are being reviewed and if, one finds that they have a lot of books to review for the same month, I would recommend, just simply print both sides. It's meant to just be enough of a quick glance over.
