I am not a very organized person. I struggle with staying on a schedule. I’m great at writing one out …but follow through…horrible! This year I have made a choice to be more intentional with my days. I’m hoping that this day planner will help me.
I am currently using a DayRunnner that I purchased at Staples. I really wanted a Filofax but I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on something that isn’t habit for me yet. Maybe down the road after I use it for a while first.
Here she is…funny thing is, i actually call it my FauxFilo when I’m referring to looking at it IRL.
When I open it up I have my color coding pens, some sticky notes, note paper and pictures of my children. ❤
The DayRunner came with a calendar system, but I didn’t really like the colors.
I’m using the 2013 Planner by Crystal Wilkerson
First section is my calendar (3 months worth). I have monthly calendars that fold out. Weekly 2=page calendar and a calendar specifically for homework.
I keep the rest of the months in the back of my planner.
I use these pretty stickers to reward myself for doing everything I planned that day.
Next up is my Cleaning section (the planner I used had other sections, but I needed names that made sense to me, so I made my own tabs.) I made a Daily Routine, Daily cleaning, and weekly cleaning checklists. These fold out…the daily checklists have 4 weeks, the weekly checklist has 13 weeks.
The Daily Deep Clean was taken from the 2013 Planner, I just retyped it and added it to my checklist I made.
Next section is Health. To the left I have my goal weights (not shown…) and on the right I have my workout schedule. That sheet covering my goal weights is a sheet of stickers for rewards.
This is my journal section. I love these 30-day challenge pages! My first goal is to do two full loads of laundry to try to keep on top of the laundry.
This is my God section. I keep the current month and next month’s copies of In Touch magazine.
So, there it is. So far it seems to be working for me! I’m praying that this will be an instrumental tool in re-training myself to be an intentional person!
Some other sections that aren’t shown (because they aren’t developed yet) are Design and Celebrate. The design will be Pinterest printouts that I plan on putting into motion. Celebrate has a protective envelope with greeting cards; also, a list of birthdays.
Do you have a planner? How long have you used a planner? I’d love to see it!
