Book At A Time Bible Reading Plan

A template designed to aid in your bible reading. It lists books of the bible by "average reading time" and provides a place for notes as you read though the bible.

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

The template will give you an overall view of how long it takes to read through each book of the bible so as you have time, you can look at the "average reading time" on the template to pick the books you'd like to read depending on your time available. I've used this on long flights to read an entire book of the bible as I've flown. It's quite helpful and only takes three classic size pages (double sided) to list all 66 books and leave space for notes. For a specialized reading plan that you can use in concert with this template, see Woodrow Kroll's book "Read your bible one book at a time".

Music Notation Staves adapted from incompetech.com

Staves for music notation, adapted from the one generated at Kevin MacLeod's Free Online Graph Paper/Grid Paper PDFs page.

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

With Kevin MacLeod's permission, I've adapted this music notation paper to ensure there's enough room for hole punching. Great for putting music together when you're on the go.

The 1-up file includes front and back for duplex printing on 5.5"x8.5" paper. Printing the 2-up file with a duplex printer requires that the printer be set to long-edge duplexing, as the first page is upside down with respect to the second.

WW Points Log Version 2

This is more an update to the already great points log that's here. I've just changed the format so it's more like the points trackers that they give out at the meetings/weigh-ins. There is now a "Deposit" column for earned activity points and the weekly points allowance section is now numbered. I also really wanted to do a page 2 for the log as well as a 2-up version for easy printing.

This is a "from scratch" version of the log using the D*I*Y Planner Widget Kit and it couldn't have been easier. Thanks Doug, et. al. for a great system and a great site. I just went back to paper from a PalmOS device that I used for six frustrating years in various models - and I was a PalmOS application developer!

Meal Planner Template

A template for planning out a week's worth of dinners.
Updated: Version 1.1 now includes pages that go from Sun-Sat and Mon-Sun.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)

Usage advice: 

At my house we sit down on Saturday and plan out the meals for the next week. What we cook can be based on who is able to cook on which evenings or who can setup the crock-pot in the morning.

We used to just scribble on a piece of paper, but this form has space for a mail course (and what cookbook it's in and which page it's on) a vegetable course, dessert and notes.

There is also a check list where you can note Special Ingredients to be put on your weekly shopping list.
