Lately, I’ve been feeling an urge to hand-write on paper instead of doing everything digitally. I also have a lot of standard letter paper that’s been used on one side but not the other, and I hate to recycle it without using both sides first. I decided to combine these two issues and create my own notebook paper.
Printable notebook paper
It was very simple to create what I wanted, which was just lines with numbers on the left side. It’s an Excel file, but I also saved it as PDF for those of you who can’t use Excel files. Notebook paper Excel and notebook paper PDF.
That was all I wanted, but then it occurred to me my readers might like some fancier stuff. I started trying to make my own, then realized there are people who’ve already done it better than I can. Here are some links:
- To do list with check boxes and alternately shaded lines for easy reading. This one prints out either landscape or portrait, and works with letter size, A4 or Classic (5.5 by 8.5 inches) paper.
- MintPrintables decorative printable to do lists are just so pretty. They’re not anymore functional than other to do lists, but they have a surprising variety of designs that range from fun to sophisticated. These print out 4 lists to an 8.5×11 sheet.
- AllFreePrintableshas lots of different kinds of lists: shopping, to do, spelling and math lists. The designs are also very nice, with several available in the shopping and to do lists.
- To do lists with Matrioshka dolls. Like the Mint Printables, these don’t do anything special, but they’re gorgeous and oh-so-cute. You can also get Matrioshka printable labels from the same page, which are great for labeling things around the house.
- The “Eat Bacon” decorative to do list cracks me up. It’s just so apropos of nothing, unless you’re as big a bacon fan as I am, in which case it feels like yes, this really should be the first item on any to do list! Prints 4 to do lists on a sheet of letter or A4 paper.
- Three-column to do list with columns for task, due date and status. Now, here’s a printable to do list that’s actually got some interesting functions for you. If you need a little more detail in your to do lists, this would be a great choice.
- Decorative to do lists from PaperPrintout are yet another decorative type – this time, only the borders are decorative. If pretty designs get in the way for you, but you still want something that’s a little nicer-looking than just lines and boxes, these are nice! Print 2 to a sheet.
- Plug “printable to do lists” into the search engine of your choice, and it’ll come up with a collection of images matching that search. Most of those images will be set up so you can print them as to do lists of your own.
