Making My Own Planner Pages

For calendars and weekly pages, I am a fan of pre-made inserts. (Specifically, I like Franklin Covey Compact undated Flourish inserts. Colorful, with lots of writing space and a great horizontal weekly layout.)

But for a while now, I've been using graph paper, two-sided, as my dashboard and scratch paper. It's cheap to print and easy to measure and cut.

Yesterday, I decided on a simple tweak that makes the pages look less busy, but still gives me the elegant lines of graph paper to work with.

Basically, I only print the graph paper on the back of the page.

The result? Perfectly straight, orderly writing, clean pages, and a happy planner. In this picture, you can see how the graph lines are viewable through the page, but faded since they are on the opposite side from the writing.

You could also print grayscale, 40 or 50% will give you lighter graph lines.
