Free Planner Printables – Etsy Shop Management

If you, like me you run an Etsy shop, then you need to keep on top of your sales and orders to ensure you you keep your customers happy. Plus, you want to make sure you always have the right stock available. There are so many important things to track each day and it can be hard to keep on top of it all. That is why we have created a completely free set of planner printables to help you keep track of your Etsy shop. So what are you waiting for, download your free set now.

What does the set include?

The set includes:

  • Order tracker - allows you to keep on top of who has ordered what and monitor when an item was made, packed and shipped
  • Yearly shop fees tracker - this helps you monitor your shop fees monthly and see just how much you have spent on Etsy fees throughout the year.
  • Profit tracker - do you know how much you make on each product?  Want to run a discount code?  Then it helps to know just how much profit you are making on each item so you can work out which products are your best products in terms of making you the most money.
  • Stock inventory - this planner printable allows you to monitor your ongoing stock levels for all the different items in your store, helping you to keep track of what you need to order and when.

These printables are in A5 size, but can easily be shrunk down or scaled up to fit smaller and larger planners.  I hope you find them useful.

12 Week Fitness Challenge – Week 1 Walking and Water with planner printables

Like me, I am guessing that you have also made a New Year’s Resolution to try and get healthier and fitter in 2017.  Now I think this has been my resolution for around the last 5 years, which is why I have set up this course.  If I am creating printables and have a whole group of people who are waiting to hear my progress, I know I can’t quit.  Plus I am hoping that together we can create a little community that helps to motivate and support each other and get us through the tough days.

I want us all to be able to look back in 12 weeks time and be proud of ourselves.  In order to see how far we have come, I have created the body measurements printables, which can be downloaded here.  You need to write all of your body measurements down and take a few pictures if you can bare it, so that in 12 short weeks, you can look back and be proud of how far you have come. I have also included my weekly weigh in printable so you can track the difference it is having on your weight too.  Every Sunday evening, I am going to post my weekly progress on the 9-5 Planner Facebook page and I would love to see how well you are doing too.

Week 1 Challenge - Water and Walking

This week's challenge is all about starting off gently. The target for this week is to manage 30 mins of walking a day.  That could be 3 ten minute walks or one long walk, but you need to hit 30 mins of walking every day this week.

Our bodies are 50-65% water.  We need water to help our body dissolve minerals and nutrients, making it easier for the body to utilise and it helps flush out toxins and waste products from our system.  The aim this week, is to drink around 8 glasses of water a day (equates to around 1.2 litres).

To help you with both these challenges, I have created a walking and water printable that can be used in your planner.  I look forward to seeing everyone's completed sheets at the end of the week!

This course will give you a week by week challenge to ensure that at the end of the 12 weeks you will look and feel like a whole new person. Every week you will be given free tools and downloadable planner printables to help you track your journey and ensure that you get the weight off and keep it off.

There is no catch, I just want to help create a community of like minded people who are looking to change their lives and share their success stories as added motivation. On my own, I know I wouldn’t be able to do this, but by supporting each other, I know we can make our weight loss dreams a reality. Together we can do this and make 2017 the best year of our lives.

Why are we called the 9-5 Planner?

Category : General

I am a born planner.  Even as a child I used to enjoy planning my days out in various notebooks and I had so many diaries on the go.  I loved stickers and using them to transform a dull notepad into something magical.  As I have grown up, I have always kept up my diary tradition and now have a bright pink A5 Filofax that is full of beautiful paper and floral stickers.  I think I probably have enough washi tape to go at least once round the earth.  My love of planning has extended into my career and my 9-5 day job involves very high level strategic planning.  However, as much as I would love to use my pink fluffy flamingo pen and my hot pink Pusheen note paper in board meetings, it is just not the done thing for a serious professional.  So I like to think I have two planning personalities, the 9-5 planner and the pink fluffy weekend planner.  In my 9-5 planner mode, I use serious washi tape with pictures of building silhouettes and black and white sophisticated to do stickers because even though I am at work, I still want to let my personality come through, even if it does have to be toned down.  At the weekends, I am all over my glitter unicorn stickers and gorgeous flamingo washi tape.  My general planner is broken into two sections.  The 9-5 section has toned down sensible black and white floral dividers, my weekend section has rainbow unicorns.  This blog represents my two sides, it contains the serious 9-5 business me, but it also lets my inner glitter girl come out.  I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it.

Which size of planner is right for me?

Category : General

There are so many planners on the market, with the original and probably best known being the Filofax. For many of the planners on the market, the Filofax sizes have become the industry standard.  They have 3 main sizes, the A5, the personal and the pocket (A6).

I’ve tried to use the pocket on several occasions. As a diary they are great, as they fit nicely in your handbag but you are going to struggle to use them for much else.  The paper is too small for recording much other than shopping lists.

The personal size is much more practical.  It is still small enough to fit in a normal handbag but is a good size for taking meeting notes or jotting down blog ideas.  

However, if you are looking for something for work, then I would recommend the A5.  There is so much more note taking space, plus there are tons of people making printables and inserts.  This means that you can completely customise your planner and make it your own.  I have 2 A5 planners on the go at all times.  One is for journaling and the other is for work.  I would always pick the A5 but it is important that you pick the planner that is most likely to fit with your needs and lifestyle.
