DIY Planner
Easy

Quickly hanging out the laundry while mentally making your shopping list, and then later, after picking up the kids from nursery school, mustn‘t forget to drop off some flowers for Aunt Gerda‘s birthday – phew, there should be 48 hours in a day!
This is often what a typical day looks like. When life‘s commitments revolve around taking care of the kids, the household, and organising your life in general, things can sometimes get a bit chaotic.

To make things a little easier for you, planners are a great way to keep track of all your tasks and to free up more time for yourself at the end of the day. Be it a cleaning plan, a grocery list or a meal prep plan – these various planner freebies will leave you perfectly prepared for the challenges of everyday life. Use triplus pens and Noris colour coloured pencils to decorate them in your favourite colours, which will not only brighten up your day but also create a more visually pleasing look.

And so that you don‘t have to print out a new planner every week, here’s a tip: by mounting it in a beautiful glass frame, you can simply wipe off the writing with glass cleaner and a kitchen towel and write on the planner over and over again with a Lumocolor non-permanent pen. This saves paper and protects the environment.

Notes

Now it’s time to start colouring! Use a few pens of your choice and take your time to colour in the small details and motifs, just as you wish. Feel free to try different colouring techniques and let your creativity run wild.

 

 

When you‘re done colouring, you can write on your planner and attach it to your fridge with magnets, for example.

Alternatively, you can take a more sustainable approach and hang it on the wall, mounted in a pretty glass picture frame. Using the Lumocolor non-permanent marker, you can write on your planner as you wish and simply wipe it off again with a little glass cleaner. This means that you can use the planner several times and do not have to dispose of it after just one use!
