I am having a hard time searching for an electronic version (any file type that can be printed) of a daily planner. Paper version of these planners look something like this: enter image description here

Only requirements for this planner are:

  • To be free
  • To have one page for each day of the year (i.e. at least 365 pages)
  • To have date on every page

It doesn't have to look anything like in the picture above, only to have the mentioned features. The reason why I just don't buy one is because I was unable to find it in stores. If anyone knows where I can download one (or if you have one), I will be most grateful for that information. Thanks in advance.

Why not just buy some diary? – user221287 Jan 1 '13 at 16:32

You can download templates for such things online, for example I found this one using a Google search for "daily planner template".

Thanks for the answer lemontwist. I have encountered this one, although you should manually type each date, which is a bit of a hassle to do 365 times... – Danilo Radenovic Dec 31 '12 at 15:20

This is a slightly different take on the daily planner so it may not be what you're looking for right now to start off the year, but might be good for future use or for when you're working on something particularly complex and need a fresh approach to keep you going :)

It takes the approach of a goal-focused day where you also break down your projects into supporting tasks so you have a view of the progress you're making as well. There's a calendar at the top so you can mark off the specific days.

They're released on a monthly basis for free from Productive Flourishing (who I have non affiliation with!) - you'll be looking for the daily action planner:

This doesn't look like the format the person is looking for. – Jeanne Boyarsky Jan 3 '13 at 2:16
No, but the alternative might work for them if he/she doesn't find the exact format he/she wants. – Aymeric Gaurat-Apelli Jan 3 '13 at 3:29

That is the website I use as a basis for my planner templates. It will not only have a template similar in nature to what you are looking for, but, will--most of the time, at least--have a download available in multiple formats and paper sizes.

I use the templates as a base to build versions that properly suit my needs. The only drawback that I have found is that, when editing many of the PDF's, the elements are poorly organized and need to be sifted through a bit to find the parts I want edited.

I am sorry Corollary Tales, I didn't get what website are you reffering to? – Danilo Radenovic Jan 2 '13 at 21:07
Sorry, I updated with the link in the proper format. It didn't seem to show up the first time. Here it is in case I missed something: – Corollary Tales Jan 6 '13 at 18:19
Thanks Corollary Tales, this is a very useful website. I really like the variety of templates. Bookmarked it. – Danilo Radenovic Jan 6 '13 at 19:50

I like the calendars and schedules at PrintFree . There are lot of free printable stuffs available for personal productivity.
