I LOVE my Planner!

I'm so excited that my planner for the 2014-2015 school year came in the mail this weekend. It's beautiful.


I had been going back and forth on whether or not I wanted to buy an Erin Condren planner. Yes, they're adorable. And yes, they look durable. But there were so many pages I didn't plan to use and the price was just something I couldn't stomach. 

So I went on to TPT and found the most amazing download from A Modern Teacher. What I love most about this download was that it was completely customizable! I was able to put my subjects in the orders that I wanted and I could arrange my calendars and plan pages just how I needed them to be.


Once I had everything designed the way I needed it I looked and looked to get it printed in color. Do I need color...no? Does it make me happy to have a color planner...yes! I called around locally and couldn't get 153 pages, printed color, front and back for less than $83.00 and that was without binding or anything fancy! 

I had heard about Best Value Copy so I figured I'd give them a shot. I was pretty nervous because they don't have a preview of your product once you've customized, but I was sure to double check everything a million times. Needless to say, my planner arrived and it is exactly what I wanted! 

The printing, binding, clear cover and hard back cost me $29.74! That was the absolute lowest I could find!

Click this referral link for Best Value Copy! You will definitely be pleased with your purchase. 

All in all, my planner cost 
$8.50 for the digital download
+ $29.74 for printing and binding
= $38.24
which leaves tons of money to buy my new favorite FriXion Erasable Pens!

  1. I just bought my planner and I'm deciding what to include and which templates to use. Did you include the small group and reading plans?

    1. I didn't include those in my planbook. I usually keep a separate binder for all things reading. I keep my plans, data, observation notes, etc. in there. That binder then stays at my reading table...plus it gives me more room for writing!

  2. When sending it off to be printed, how did you organize the double sided page versus single sided? For example, I want the monthly calendar view to be double sided so I can see the whole month, but do not want my first page printed on the back of the cover. How did you go about organizing this? Thanks for your help in advance!
