Planning my week totally Works for Me, and I've come up with all sorts of forms over the last few years to help me do it.
This is something I designed and used for quite a while last year, and it's something I might go back to at some point. It's a four-page-per-week planner formatted for letter-sized paper. Below is some info about it. If you're interested, you can download it for free! (It's a PDF file.)
- The first page has a row of squares to write in calendar events for the week.
- Below that is a section called "Things To Do." You can write in tasks in four categories. I usually labeled the categories Homeschool, Blog/Computer, For DangerBear, and General Tasks.
- The bottom of the first page has a place to record money spent, as well as lines for notes.
- The following three pages are daily planners. Each day contains room to record things like your Most Important Tasks, daily chores, menu, Scripture reading, and so on. I used the daily "theme" to note the day's focus, like cleaning, baking, or laundry. You could also decide to focus on a certain character quality each day.
- There are daily sections for homeschool/children and blogging. I realize not everyone has kids or a blog. This is just something I designed for myself that I wanted to share. If you can think of more general categories to replace them, I can probably create a new form and offer that as a download.
I'm always open to suggestions, so if you have some ideas for improving the planner, I'd love to hear them!
