Downloads on The Art of Simple


Did I write about a download and you want to find it? It’s most likely here.

Daily Docket 2.0

[download] If you’d like a simple, streamlined, useful day planner, you might like the Daily Docket. Updated from the original version (which is still available, below), this download has room for you to scribble out your day, make dinner plans, commit to taking care of yourself, and even motivation to make it through another day of LEGO-stepping.

Pocket Docket 2.0

[download] Same thing as above… sorta. There’s two on a page, so it uses half as much paper. Not as many bells and whistles, but still totally gets the job done. Room to scratch out your day, decide on dinner, and remember stuff for tomorrow.

20 Questions for a New Year’s Eve Reflection

[download] Here’s a printable list of questions to reflect over the past year, for you to use at gatherings with friends and family, or to mull over by yourself. You can also cut up squares of the same questions to put in a hat, game-style. Also, download kids’ questions! Read more here.
