Homeschool Mom Planner Freebie for 2022

Hello, dear ladies! Today I am sharing the wonderful news that I have some organizing videos and…a homeschool mom planner freebie for 2022!

In my absence here on the blog I have actually done two videos, one on how I organize my life on paper, the other on how I organized our hallway closet. I will share both of these videos at the end of this post.

Also, I have done a new video describing and explaining a planner I put together just for us homeschool moms.

I created this planner because I have looked, and looked, and looked (which is really fun for me) for a product that hit a lot of spots, but could not find one that met my particular needs, namely:

  • Places for life as a manager of my home.
  • Places for life as a cook and procurer (it must be a real word because I just typed it and it does not have a read squiggly line underneath–who knew?).
  • Places for life as a homeschool mom (why is it that the word “homeschool” always does have that squiggly line underneath?).
  • Places for life as a child of God.

I also did not like the form of most planners, which typically offer a week-at-a-glance on a two-page spread. My preference is to have a two-page spread with a week-at-a-glance on one side, and places for all sorts of other useful things on the other side. As I understand it, this style is called “dashboard.”

And…I can’t stand ugly or masculine-looking planners. I’m not just a girl, I’m a girlie-girl (as a child I hid my pants so I would only have dresses to wear to school).

I prayed and I sat for a few nights and I cut and pasted and arranged until I had something that I think I can really use. Then I printed it and bound it and have been using it, and I think it is wonderful!

I plan to put all of this yummy organizing goodness into a file and have Amazon (and maybe someone else who does spiral binding) turn it into an actual book someday, but that will be after I have ironed out the kinks and gotten more input from other moms.

And, here’s the good news: You can try it for free!

Yep! Right here and now you can download it and print it and use it however it suits you (there are actually three cover versions, so pick the one you like best).

Just click on the picture you like best to find your download:

Here are some previews of what you will find inside:

Aren’t you excited? I know I am. You can leave input in the comments of this post, on my contact page, or on my channel under the video for this post. Here is the link:

Before you go, make sure and watch these videos for more fun and giggles:

  2. Thanks for sharing your planning pages. I especially like the food inventory and home task pages. These are too areas that I needed more structure and ideas.

  3. First off, I’m so grateful for you and all your videos, they have blessed me so much and have been the biggest influence on me, besides the Bible, as a mom. I recommend you to everyone and my husband is probably tired of listening to me talk about you ha ha. Thank you so much for making a planner, I am so excited to try it out. I have been watching videos and looking through all kinds of planners trying to see if one would work and I haven’t tried it yet but I can already tell yours checks off a lot of boxes on my planner wish list (the grocery shopping list like aisles is exactly how I think, love it that you thought it out so thoroughly). I prayed today (under your influence, always talking about how God gives you ideas) that God would give me an idea about how to organize my life better and then I found your new post! Anyways I hope all the best for you and your family in this coming year, know that God is most definitely using you!

    • Thank you for your sweet, encouraging words. As you know, I am just a silly little girl who loves her heavenly Daddy, and I hope to encourage others to do the same because He is so amazing 🙂 I’m glad the planner blesses you–I have been using it these past few weeks and I think it’s working, although there are a few things that may need changing, still.

  4. Thank you for sharing your creative planner and planning process. I just discovered your blog and truly appreciate your passion and generosity. Are you considering making an editable version of this available on Etsy, Facebook Marketplace, TPT or some other site? I truly love this planner and would be willing to pay for a full year with the option to tweak edit a couple of things such as the fonts.

    • These are great ideas! I never thought of the options you have suggested. I will definitely consider them–thank you so much for your valuable input:)

  5. I just started using your planner this week, and so far really like it. I just put it in a three ring binder, so I can put the kids’ assignment sheets in (thank you for those, too!), and I think I will put your record book pages in between. for me the homeschool area is too little with currently 5 students, but with your additional pages I can resolve that problem.
    Thank you so much for sharing the planner and all the other great resources!

    • Thank you for your valuable input! I will try and work on that homeschooling section, perhaps have a version for homeschool moms with more students? I love sharing resources that help others!

  6. I can only speak for myself, but you do help a lot! Whenever I can I buy your books instead of using the free printable ☺️. I love especially the lesson books!

    • I love offering things for free, but I’m so thankful when someone buys my books, so thank you, thank you! I’m so glad the lesson books are blessing you 🙂

  7. I’m a planner girl and I love your new planner. The food inventory has been helpful. My suggestion is about the fonts. I love pretty fonts and think the planner would look so nice with some jazzed up fonts. I especially love the Bible verses you included.

    I always talk about you in first person to my husband and cousin (who also homeschool and follows you.) I consider you my homeschool mom mentor and I love watching your videos and using your curriculum. I always recommend your website, curriculum and videos to friends.

    I’m currently watching your gluten free meal planning video. My daughter is allergic to dairy. E-mail me if you want a homemade “cheeze” recipe. It’s so good and healthy.

    Reply
    • I am so humbled–it makes me happy that we can be “friends” via video 🙂 Perhaps in Heaven we can give each other a big hug {{{}}}. I will take the jazzy fonts into consideration. Do you have any favorites? I would greatly appreciate your cheeze recipe–dairy is not our daughter’s friend!

  8. I love the planner! Thank you. I do have one suggestion. It would be nice to have a page for clothing inventory. We have 12 people to keep track of and I can’t tell you the times I hear “I need this, I need that…” it would be nice to have a place to write it all down with other household responsibilities.
