3 Easy Ways to Use Blank Paper in a Planner

KerrieLynn from SparkleFrogs asked me do a post for her Facebook group about planner inserts and how I use them. 

I'm sure most people are talking about how they use Franklin Covey or DIY Fish inserts, but I instantly thought that I wanted to talk about blank pieces of paper.

Of course, any paper can be cut and used in a planner, but for my 4 1/4 x 6 3/4 Franklin Covey compact binder, I choose some cheap 4 x 6 notepaper.

TIP: 4 x 6 index cards would work well, too!

I use my blank paper in so many ways. That's the wonderful thing about blank paper. It works for any purpose.

*Menus

*Grocery Lists

*To Do Lists (Day or Project Specific)

*Codes or Indexes

*Brainstorming 

*Doodling

*Meeting Notes

*Logs

It just makes sense to use cheap paper for these short-term purposes. By using unlined paper, I leave open so many possibilities for how I might use the paper.

TIP: Hole punch both edges of the paper, so it can fit on the left or right side of your planner as needed.

How do you use blank paper?

Etcetera.

Thanks for the great ideas! I'm a bit planner obsessed. :) I have an Erin Condren planner that I just love and I admit I don't always use the blank pages at the back. Thanks for the tips!

I am currently using blank (or graph) paper to track health goals (weight, blood sugar, pressure, insulin usage, etc.), hoping to see noticeable changes over time.

Dashboard. Occasionally as a daily page or docket. Although, I've downloaded some cool pages by Becky of plannerfun.

blank paper IS my planner! LOL. Just a sheet of printer paper with scribbles that I hang on to until the end of the week.

Pretty much the same way. And I use cheaper paper, too. I tried punching the paper on both sides but I didn't like that. I wish I did, though, because it would make a good thing even better.
