I haven’t written a good planning post in awhile….
I miss my planner. It sat there for months- mocking me. At first, it mocked me and my carefully laid out plans. It mocked me with shows that I was supposed to attend, book clubs, lunches, museum exhibits…
Then it mocked me with it’s emptiness…. day after day…page after page…empty…
I don’t like when anybody mocks me. Especially my planner. Yes- my planer is a person. I call her Sheila.
So Sheila looked so sad and lonely with all those empty pages…
What’s a planner supposed to do?
So I made a plan to add to my planner…
First off- I added stickers!
Here’s my case for stickers-
- It’s creative
- It brings out my inner child
- It’s cute
- It makes me feel good
- It gives me something to look forward to
What else have I added to my planner?
- Movies/TV I want to watch
- reminder to text friends
- Word of the day
- How I’m feeling
- Highlights of the day
- Lowlights of the day
- Actual reminders of things to do
- Blog schedule/ideas
- Whatever I’m thinking when I have the planner open
The hardest thing about the pandemic is my lack of control….
Playing with my planner has given me a little control over my days- on the page at least…
What other organizing ideas have you come up with LA? (face it- I know you’re thinking this. Who doesn’t think about what I’m doing to organize my life…)
These are my chore charts. I have them up in my kitchen. One of them are all the things that must be done on a daily basis. One is things that are done on a weekly basis. The other is a list of things that get done monthly or biweekly. It is so much easier to keep track of what needs to be done. It’s also easy for my family to see what needs to be done- you know- in case they want to help out around the house…
And there you have it!
Another planner post in the books…
