How many times have you said “I don’t need to write that down, I will totally remember it?”  Yeah. Us too.   There is SO much we need to keep track of in our daily lives, how can we be expected to remember it all. Why should we?  Keeping track of all our appointments. Our families appointments.  Errands we need to run. Calls we need to make.  Things we need to buy.  Bills we need to pay.  Sound familiar?  Overwhelmed yet.  Yeah Us too.

We searched for a way to get it all under control. It was really simple when we started looking for a solution.  Write it down.  Simple.  Done.  You no longer have to store all the info in your brain like you are a computer.  This painless task of taking pen to paper will give you your “brain space” back.  By taking a few moments to layout everything you need to accomplish you can organize those tasks, create the best plan of attack to get it all done.  This will ultimately create more peace and calm in your days.  And that is what we all need. Peace. Ohhhhhhhmmmmmmmm………..

Whether you just use a piece of paper, notebook or the calendar you get from the ASPCA, we just want you to write it down.  If you are looking for something a little more structured, hey, we got you covered with that too.  Go to our shop get our limited edition A5 Planner Inserts. Cultivated because of our busy lives, we are proud to be able to share with you our week on two page calendar inserts.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how we use these pages to streamline our days and weeks.


Paper Bean Press A5 Insert Refills Priority Box

We call this our priority box.  This is a place for our most important task or focus of the week.  This box was born for that one item that you simply cannot forget for the week. Think of it as your “don’t forget” box.  You could also place quotes or scriptures in this area as a wonderful reminder for the week. We have done that too if there is nothing super pressing for the week.  We actually really like to use is that way.
Use it for…
Upcoming Birthdays/Holidays
Card(s) you have to mail
Appointments you have to make
Items you must buy
Bills you have to pay

We love printables!

It’s really no secret how much we adore printables.  And when we create a printable that we just swoon over, we think you need to have it!  That’s how we roll.

Since all our printables are created to fit an A5 planner, there is a little trimming you will need to do after you download these must have pages.  Each page will print perfectly centered on an 8.5 X 11 piece of paper.  If there are two pages or more you can print them on both side of the paper.  If your computer setting are correct, they should print perfectly.

Printing TIP:  Make sure when you go to print the page you change your printer settings and choose ACTUAL SIZE. (Most printer will default to fit to page.)

Our pages are built with crop market which will give you a guide on how and where to cut them.   Here is a step-by-step guide on how we trim our printable to fit in our “can’t live without” planners.
