I finished all of October using the free Scattered Squirrel printable planner pages. While it was hard not having my Bullet Journal (I ran out of pages in my 2021 Bullet journal) I got into the swing of things fairly well with Scattered Squirrel and think if I HAD to use something other than a bullet journal this might work just fine.
The picture above shows the two different versions of the monthly planning sheet. I loved them both. The page on the left was a bit more detailed for planning. The page on the right had a dot grid section on the bottom for me to make a menu plan which was really helpful. (Please excuse the picture quality, I’m working on getting better at lighting and making them more clear.)
I also love the weekly planning page options. The one above was a more simple view, which I liked the best. But if you have a lot of appointments to keep track of, my second favorite weekly page below might work better for you.
And this very simple daily page (on the right below) ended up being a winner for me. I love the time block down the left side and then 4 sections on the right, along with a “top three” at the top of the page. It was very versatile for lists, projects, etc.
Overall, if you are on a very tight budget but want to be more organized and better at planning, Scattered Squirrel is awesome. All of her pages are available for free, and they all have full size and half page options. Working in a binder was NOT my favorite, but if you printed out the pages for each quarter or half year and had them spiral bound, it would be very affordable.
And now, the time I’ve been dreading… you get to see how I did on my habits this month. They STUNK. I have no excuses other than I just didn’t want to do most of them… sigh. But, November is a fresh new month, and I can try again. Progress not perfection, right?
Let me know if you’ve tried Scattered Squirrel and what you thought. Or what works best for you. Later this week I’m going to introduce you to the planner I’ll be using for November. And I have to say, it is BEAUTIFUL! It’s a Hopefuel planner and I am excited to share it with you!
