Just a quick idea I wanted to share.
Today I picked up a super cute 2013 planner (actually, it runs from September 2012 through December 2013) at Michaels for just $2.80. It has a page per week with space for each day (perfect for my daily to dos and appointment notes) and monthly pages.
Instead of making my own planner like I was going to, since this had EXACTLY the layout I wanted, I decided to make a transparency with the Project Life Design A template that I could slip into the planner each week.
I used a Sharpie to draw the template on so it was permanent. I don't have printable transparencies for my ink jet printer, so this worked best for me.
