This mega file includes everything you could possibly need to plan, track and evaluate your homeschooling routine and your children's wonderful journey of learning through life! This is the perfect addition to your homeschool, whether it's your first year (congratulations!) or you've been homeschooling for decades.
I'm getting a head start on next year's planning and I feel so organised with the lesson plan outlines in The Mulberry Planner. The hardest part for me has been choosing which of the gorgeous cover sheets I want to use! There is just so much choice and I can really make this planner my own. My son loves having his own record keeping pages to use too.

Designed for flexibility
I've designed this planner for ultimate flexibility, because I know that every family's needs are different. For example, many pages have multiple layout options. I've designed more than 170 pages but you definitely DON'T have to print every page! Once you've downloaded, simply look at each file and decide which recording and planning pages you'll use, and which cover and section dividers you prefer. Then build your own planner by mixing and matching! If your needs change throughout the year, your planner can change too!
For unschoolers too!
We get a lot of unschoolers asking whether this planner is suitable for unschooling. It's a great question... We have it on good authority that our planner suits unschoolers too! (See what they had to say about the planner here.) Why? While you may not use the lesson plan or weekly schedule template, there are 100+ pages that will help you record your children's self-directed learning.
A simple digital download
The Mulberry Planner comes as a DIGITAL FILE for you to download and print. It's a full set of 176 gorgeously designed pages, templates, printables, lists and calendars - basically it's your whole homeschool year... SORTED!
"I love the beauty and functionality of my Mulberry Planner! It's easy to personalize to my family and homeschool needs. I simply print the pages I need to for lesson planning and record keeping. Such a simple and lovely way to help us stay organized!"

Add a unique personalized cover page
I'm in the Southern Hemisphere, can I use this planner?
We release TWO planners a year, almost identical.
In May, we release a planner for the July to June Northern Hemisphere school year, so the calendar months will be June - December of 2018, and January - June of 2019. The title pages are marked with 2018-19 and the page size is US Letter (the most common page size in the Northern Hemisphere). The variation calendar has Northern Hemisphere moon cycles, but there is an unmarked calendar option too.
In October, we release the Southern Hemisphere planner which fits the January-December school year. Eg. In October 2018 we will release the planner for 2019. The moon cycle calendar version will be updated to reflect this, as will the title pages. The calendar will cover all of the 2019 months. If you don't want to miss the release of our 2019 planner, subscribe to our email list.
So if you'd like something to help you plan the rest of 2018, you can buy this planner now for the rest of 2018, and purchase the 2019 version in October to take you through all of next year.
Are these templates A4 or US letter?
The Northern Hemisphere planner is US letter size, which still prints on Southern Hemisphere printers, but some borders may be cropped slightly. To avoid this, some printers have a setting to 'Size to Fit' or similar. The Southern Hemisphere 2019 planner (and the 2018 one) are A4 size, designed for Australian and New Zealand printers.
Why is this planner sold in USD?
This planner is designed predominantly for residents of the Northern Hemisphere, where USD is the most common currency. The Southern Hemisphere planner is sold in AUD.
Do you deliver physical planners?
No, these planners are not printed, they are a digital download which you will get access to after purchase to download as PDFs and print. This is clear on our site, and refunds will not be given for accidental purchase.
I can't see the pages in detail on your website.
We've created large images for you to preview in detail, so to zoom in closer, press keyboard shortcut.
PC computers: Ctrl +
Mac computers: Command +
When will I receive the digital files?
Straight after purchasing, you'll be directed to the links to download the planner. You can also access these links any time from the purchase receipt, sent to the email provided on checkout.
Can I print this planner at home?
The planner comes in a series of high quality PDF files which can be printed on standard home printers, however for the best results and quality we would recommend printing at your local office supply or printer store eg. Staples, Officeworks. This is quite cost effective as industrial printers are more ink efficient and can therefore be cheaper than buying a cartridge to print at home.
Can I print it all in black + white?
We have designed 80% of this year's planner to be printed in black & white (as opposed to last year) but some of the title pages, quote pages and section dividers will still need color ink.
Can I get a refund?
Unfortunately, due to the nature of digital online products we do not have a refund allowance on our digital products because you are purchasing access to a link that delivers the product to you. We can't return a digital product when you've already got access to it so therefore we can't do refunds. If you believe you have extenuating circumstances, you can contact us.
I want the customized cover page, how long does it take?
Customized cover pages will be delivered as a digital file within 7 days. After purchase, we will email you to confirm which design and initials you would like, and send you a proof to check.
I have another question about the planner.
