Organization Pages

We wanted to make Marie Kondo and The Home Edit proud, so we created tons of time saving sheets to keep you super organized from day one including assignment checklists and password lists.

  1. Hello,

    I noticed that a password is necessary to edit the PDF. I would like to change the times in the daily schedule to match my school’s times. Are you able to provide that, even if it comes at a cost?

    Thanks for the beautiful files!

    1. Hi Martha,
      We are so glad you like the planner! We have the file password protected to protect the copyright status of the fonts and graphics, so we are not able to provide the password to edit the full file. Any parts of the file that you are able to edit are the gray boxes that you can type in to change the text.

  2. The link will not pull up. I used pages from this planner last year and loved it, but forgot to save! Can you share a valid link with me?

    1. Hi Hayli,
      When you click the blue “Download Here” button, a pop-up should open. You can try checking to make sure your browser isn’t blocking pop-ups from the site or try using a different browser. If you happen to be attempting the download at school, your district’s web filter may be blocking the pop-up. Let me know if you’re not able to get the planner!
