Project Planner – DIY Plan a Project Planner

Plan your Projects, with ease!
With a Project Planner!

In my experience I have found that there are two different types of beginner-intermediate DIYers.  Group one are the type A, create a mood board, research for hours, draw their project to scale, create a shopping list, and get started on their project.  Then there’s the other group which gets the impulsive DIY high, researches on Pinterest for 10 minutes, heads to Home Depot, grabs a few supplies to get started, heads back to Home Depot a few more times that day, and makes it all up on the fly.  Sound familiar? 


I have been both of these people depending on the project.  After surveying dozens of fellow DIYers, I discovered that there aren’t very many resources that allow us to plan projects and keep things organized at the same time. Where do I keep all of my receipts? How much money did this project ACTUALLY cost me? Can I consolidate at least a few of my repetitive Home Depot trips? Yes, yes you can with the project planner!

What is the Project Planner

The project planner is a physical hardcover journal that allows you to do all of the following:

175 pages packed with prompts to keep your projects organized! 

Plan out a years worth of projects – place them in the months you’d like to tackle them. (Some projects you have to push back because to allow time to save up. Outdoor projects during the appropriate months). 

12 separate projects, each with their own section, monthly view & weekly view

Sketch out your build on graph paper or use the graph paper to map out your plywood cuts (it’s scaled to a 4×8′ sheet of plywood!)

Plan your wood board cuts to determine how many pieces of lumber you need to purchase for your project & how to cut your boards to get the least amount of scrap!

Break up each project into phases. List the anticipated start and end date, estimate your budget. Completing projects in phases is the best way to keep momentum and make the whole project seem less daunting. 

Punch Lists for each phase – the to-do steps, supply list, days of the week space so you can organize your time.

24 Pocket folders – keep tabs on your receipts, wallpaper samples, paint chips and any other design & project related materials with each project.

Expense Tracker – quickly be able to tally up your receipts and project expenses.

Motivational Quotes – because who doesn’t need a little pick me up motivation mid project planning?

Removable bookmark with ruler dimensions. Mark your place & draw your plans to scale. 

Builtin elastic bookmarker. Keep tabs on where you left off. 

PLUS…. an entire ebook quick reference guide valued at $25. 

Quick Reference Guide is a one stop shop for all the things you might be wondering during your project plannings.

 Whats the best paint? What sheen do I buy for walls vs. ceilings? What type of wood should I use for this project? Nominal vs. Actual board dimensions (did you know a 2×4 is not actually 2 inches by 4 inches?). When to spray vs. roll paint? When to caulk vs. wood fill? How to create a mood board?

ALL these questions and then some are answered in the quick reference guide!
