How to Use Plannerisms planners Weekly pages
Plannerisms planner's weekly pages are very flexible to use any way you like. You can even use them differently week after week. It’s easy to customize the page to fit your needs. Here are some suggestions for use:
Use the column on the left before Monday to list your daily goals, then check them off in the day spaces as you complete them. This way you don’t have to write “Exercise” or “Take vitamins” every day. The checkmarks are a great visual indicator of whether you are meeting your daily goals. The goals written in the column are a daily prompt to remind you of what you want to accomplish each day.
Alternatively, you can write the names of your family members in the left column, then in the daily columns you can write each person’s activities for each day so you know who is where and when.
Another option is to divide the daily columns into Appointments/ Tasks/ Reminders, or Work/ Home/ Personal, or anything else you like.
Use the bottom of the daily columns for menu planning, daily totals, or any other notes for that day.
The space below the daily columns can be used in endless ways. Here are some ideas:
Use the space below the days for To Do lists. It helps to categorize lists. You can write a list of Things That Must Get Done This Week and another list of Non-Urgent Tasks. You can categorize your lists into Work/ Home/ School/ Family. Or, you can create lists by project. Experiment to see what works best for you.
This open space is also a great place to capture phone numbers, notes and reminders that otherwise would get scribbled on a scrap of paper and lost.
What I love about the weekly pages is they are so adaptable, I can use them any way I need to! And the flexible format easily adapts to my needs even when they change week to week.
