These handy planners simplify your life enormously by allowing you to write recurring events only once. Yes you read that right! You don't have to rewrite recurring events week after week. Your recurring events stay visible all the time so there's no worries about double booking, even in future weeks and months. If you're not already familiar with the WeekDate system, here's how it works.
The WeekDate planner is super slim and lightweight so it's easy to carry with you everywhere. It folds out like this:
The top section is where you write your recurring monthly events: things that happen on, for example, the first Monday of every month. Or the third Thursday. Or the last Friday of the month. Types of things that might go here: staff meetings, farmer's market, cleaning schedules, etc.
The weeks are color coded so for example in the week shown above you can see the first Mon-Fri of the month, and the second Saturday and Sunday of the month. So you look at your current week, then look up the column to see the monthlies that pertain to that day according to which week it is.
The middle section offers you a view of two weeks at a time. This is where you write your specifics for each day. There is also a lined space to the left of the page to write weekly goals and lists.
Below the weekly section is where you write your weekly recurring events. This is where you write your kids' afterschool activities, your class schedule, and any other events that happen the same day every week. Write in pencil, and when something changes you write it once and it's done for the rest of the year!
At the left of the bottom panel is where you write things that happen on the same day every month, for example if your rent is due on the first of the month, credit card payment is due on the 5th, etc.
This means that everything is visible all the time: your monthly recurring events, your weekly recurring events, bills due, and scheduled events. Nothing slips through the cracks! No more feeling overwhelmed. This planner keeps it all together, and all in front of you all the time.
Embedded in the weekly pages there are monthly calendars and a page each month for notes, goals and to-dos:
This whole thing folds up so slim and it weighs next to nothing so you can take it with you everywhere!
I haven't shown you all the goodies in this planner so you can discover them on your own. Look for the Time Tracker especially!
