Homemade Planner

So my brain feels a little fried since school started again and my hubby finally went back to work (ha ha).  Trying to get back into a routine is a relief but I'm also struggling to get it all together again - chalk it up to having kids!  Well I love to write things down in a planner, I've been doing it since high school.  Since being a stay-at-home mom though I haven't found the right planner for me. To many "appointment" spaces and not enough "to do" spaces.  To solve my problem I made this planner page today:

I printed a "cover page" with a calendar for the month of September. Then I printed the planner page (included in the download) on the back.  I then printed it on the front and back of 7 pieces of paper to give me enough days for the month (does that make sense?).  I took a cute piece of cardstock, cut it to size (8.5 x11),  folded it and all the pages in half.  Then I sewed right up the fold line with my sewing machine.  I folded it in half again to re-crease it.  Rounded the cover's corners with a punch and ta-da (as RJ would say) my custom planner for the month.  I'm going to make one of these next.  I'll probably have it printed and bound at my local copy center... I think they would make cute gifts too.
