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!

    That is a great idea. I like the money spent section. It's so easy to forget where cash goes sometimes.

    I'm glad you all like it! It's good to know that the ridiculous amount of time I spent designing it was worth it. =)

    Wow, you are on the ball! I can't believe you managed to try the chai within hours after me posting. :) I'm glad you liked it, though. At first I was trying to make the chai from memory and I was always using too much of the actual tea and it would end up bitter. Once I got the recipe I was much happier! I haven't tried it iced yet, but I should, it sound fantastic.

    I'd been wanted to make chai for a while, so when I saw your recipe I jumped up and tried it!
