Plan With Me {February 2017}

I cannot tell you how much I’m enjoying my Happy Planner this year! I love having one spot for all my daily to-do’s and reminders. Every Friday night I take about 15-20 minutes to plan for the weekend and upcoming week. I’ve enjoyed watching other “plan with me” type videos on YouTube, just to see how other people use functional stickers to make their planning more effective. I usually find that I have a little bit of creative energy on Friday nights, so setting up my planner for the next week is a very productive way to use up that energy!planning-with-me-weekly-planning-session

Here are a few things I love writing in my planner that I wasn’t able to track using my old system (a to-list only style planner pad):

  • recurring tasks from my household cleaning schedule
  • healthy eating goals (I almost typed “health and fitness,” but who are we kidding? There’s no fitness happening here! 🙂 )
  • verses and quotes for inspiration each day
  • also – I love having my to-do lists for household chores and blogging all in the same place!

But why just tell you when I can show you? Here’s a peek at last weekend’s planning session!

  1. I tried doing digital planning for a year and it didn’t work for me at all. I can’t count how many times I accidentally set a task for 5 am instead of 5pm. I decided to go back to paper planning last summer and it has been amazing for my organization and time management! The physical act of writing helps with memory, so it’s even helped me to remember to do things when my planner isn’t right next to me. 🙂


  2. I’ve been wanting to ask if you are the only one cleaning your house and cooking all the meals ? My husband and I both work full time jobs, and I’ve tried keeping up with everything and I just can’t do it all by myself. How do you get it all done?


    1. Oh Mandy – I totally know what you’re saying! I only work outside the home 30 hours a week right now. When I was working 40 plus hours I didn’t blog or do YouTube, so I had a little more free time. We don’t have children and I don’t do much at all as far as volunteering at church or hanging out with friends. To answer your question, yes, I do all the housework and take care of all the meals and shopping. When I worked full time, Paul did almost all the laundry and at least one other chore. That was a huge help. Don’t be ashamed to get help with your house cleaning or something else like that – because you’re right, we can’t do it all! When I get overwhelmed I just make sure that the laundry is being done and that our main living space is tidy. We eat simple meals and I run the dishwasher often! Hang in there! Hugs ❤
