New Monthly PlanPack insert for the Midori Traveler's Notebook

This is a new concept in Midori inserts, based on an idea by my friend Rhomany (her site is here), who helped me work out the details and build the individual layouts.

As you can see from the pictures above, this is an all-in-one 48-page insert with a variety of pages. The idea is that you have a fresh insert for each month. The insert starts with a title page:

Behind that, there's a two page spread for the current month:

You can fill in the dates and note down key events and monthly goals and make notes for a monthly debrief - matters to carry forward to the following month.

Behind the month spread, there are six weekly spreads that look like this:

Finally, the back two-thirds of the booklet is freeform note space:

What you may not be able to see unless you click to enlarge that spread is that there's a faint dot grid pattern, which lets you use these pages very flexibly, which you can hopefully see in the pictures at the top of this post.

The real beauty of this insert is that it can do so much for you while only taking up a single booklet's space in your notebook cover. And saving your used monthly books will create a very useful and well-ordered archive. 

What you'll download is a PDF file, in 'pre-shrunk' format. This is ready to print straight away, without any need to use booklet format on your printer. Just print this straight to A4, with duplex set to flip on the short edge (I'd recommend you print just one or two pages first to make sure your printer deals with this correctly and make adjustments as necessary.)

Once you've printed out the pages, you can bind them into a booklet and cut to size using these instructions.

Of course, the real nerds among you (you know who you are) will want the source file to tinker with. Here it is.
