Daily Dairy, One page, Classic

My days are task and information heavy, with the occasional appointment. On my perpetual quest for the perfect planner, I was browsing the Paper Chase planners and notebooks at Borders when I came across their page per day diaries, a simple lined page with the date at the top that allows you to write whatever and however you want. Two days ago, a forum topic here led me to the Quo Vadis website which had a page per day diary format with a little bit of space for appointments. My first submission to DIYP is my attempt at both of those formats.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Usage advice: 

These are MS Word 2000 documents, so they should be easy to manipulate. I use a 0.6 inch margin on the hole punch side and a 0.4 inch margin on the free side. The top of the document is a two cell table so the date can be easily changed and it will still align properly. I spent an afternoon trying to learn OOo draw and using the widgets, but I never got the hang of it.

I'm still in the experimental stage with these, so I've only printed a week's worth. I suppose if I was going to do a lot of them I would just blank out the dates and handwrite them in later.

Not bad

BTW, OpenOffice 3 opens them up just fine.

Thanks.

Good to know they work in OO 3. I use Office 2000 at home and Office 2007 at work, so I will just stick with what I know and what I'm paid to use. Much less frustrating for me that way. :)

No problem. Do what works.

As far as approval, sometimes ya hafta nudge us admins.

Your planner page was so simple and uncomplicated. I have worked for 40+ years and have always looked for the 'perfect' planner. Now that I am retired, I don't need all the detail. I make jewelry now in the hopes of selling, so I do need to keep track of dates and things to do. Thanks for your idea -- I am sure some day I too will find the perfect planner.

Thank you

I'm glad you liked the pages. I have actually switched to a new daily page since I submitted these (which I did use for about 6 months I think). I'll submit my current one page per day planner as soon as the 2 page weekly template I just submitted goes through.
