Business Expense/Mileage Logs

These forms are designed to work together. I used these forms (though not in DIYPlanner format) for a number of years, and can attest that they work. In fact, my accountant loved this format. :-)

I have to confess, however, that the basic format is not unique to me. In fact, this form is loosely based on a Dome book. However, I constantly worried about losing my Dome book. So, one year, when I couldn't find the Dome book in the store, I made my own forms that fit inside my DayTimer, and created a spreadsheet that would work with my own forms. I have now modified my forms yet again to take advantage of the Widget kit, and make them more general, and less specific to my needs, including adding extra categories, and leaving some blank lines for those who need even more categories.

I've enclosed instructions in the zip file.

Enjoy!

-Jon

hPDA: Add to Planner card template (French)

French PDF version of "Agenda", with OOo source included.

Paper size: 
Index Card (3 x 5)
Thumbnail: 
Ajout.jpg
Usage advice: 

Jot down appointments and synch them to your planner at the end of the day.

I do not carry my daybook/planner with me during the day. But I do make appointments during this time. I made this template so I can jot down the appointment that I make, and later add to my planner at the end of the day when I return home. I'm a Francophone, so the form is in French.

International Radio Alphabet List (corrected)

I have a very long French name and I got tired of spelling it out only to have it mispelled anyway. So I made this card and now my name is not mispelled anymore. Ygor pointed out a booboo, so I fixed it.

Project sheet

Before I found this great site, I found myself becoming overwhelmed at times due to the great number of projects that I'd be working on at any given time. I created this form to help better track the projects that I work on.

Before I found this great site, I found myself becoming overwhelmed at times due to the great number of projects that I'd be working on at any given time. I created this form to help better track the projects that I work on.

I created this form to help me keep track of things that I have to do for projects I work on. I can make note of who/what it is for and figure out a priority listing for it. I list all of the things that are to be done and can check them off as I complete them. If I have to get some info from someone else, I can make a note so I can remember it. I can put notes on the back to keep track of things that need to be changed or whatever.

Authorization for Disbursement envelope

This template is printed on letter paper (8.5" x 11"), cut and folded into an envelope that fits into a Classic binder (5.5" x 8.5").

The envelope has a form on the front for users to list expenses for reimbursement, disbursement requests, and check payee and address information. There is also a place for 2 authorization signatures on the front form. The envelope includes instructions for use on the back as well as a large place for notes.

Paper size: 
Classic (5.5 x 8.5)
Thumbnail: 
Auth_for_Disbursement_env.jpg
Usage advice: 

This form is the template of an envelope with forms printed on it. Print to 8.5" x 11" paper (landscape), cut, fold, punch, and store in Clasic size binder (5.5 x 8.5).

I use this form in an organization where I am the treasurer. Members complete it to submit receipts for reimbursement. Members also use it to request a check for something that has a quote or purchase proposal.

As an envelope and form in one, it is really handy for someone like an organization's treasurer or finance committee. It keeps signatures and receipts/quotes all together in one neat place and package.

The template here is simply titled "Authorization for Disbursement". In my customized version, I put the organization's name above the title and the organization's logo to the left of the title. That kind of customization gives the form a more official feel when the form is eventually used for official financial documentation.

Checkbook register for younger folk
Paper size: 
Letter and A4
Usage advice: 

This is a US Letter-sized checkbook register for younger people to use (or those getting harder of seeing) It's pretty basic, but allows for one or two-line descriptions.

I've included both Microsoft Excel, OpenOffice.org and a pdf file in the zip file.

*EDIT*
Reynor has emailed me a portrait version of the register, so I'm including it in a separate Microsoft Excel file. So, the zip file encloses a register in landscape, and the non-zip is portrait.

Home Roaster's Templates

This template is for homeroasters and coffee aficionados. The first page is a roasting schedule with a field on the left, CODE, for the roast code (think C = city, C+ = City+, FC = Full City, etc). The second form is an inventory list. They are both first drafts. Hopefully, I'll add a cupper's log later. What I've uploaded is a zip archive with both the printable PDF and the customizable odg files.

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

The Coffee Templates are designed for homeroasters to schedule their roasting as well as monitor their inventory. Laid out as a Classic format. Enjoy!

Knitting Project Manager

Paper size:

Usage advice: 

I'm not a graphic designer, so this isn't perfect, but the basic idea is that you can have your project info all on one page for quick reference. I like to have records of the projects I've done, and this form can be used as a record of past projects as well as an idea sheet for future knitting. The back of the form is knitter's graph paper for charting color or stitch designs.
