My Weekly Schedule and Giveaway Winner!

Posted: June 3rd, 2009 | Author: Katie | Filed under: Simple Solutions |

I have a day planner.
I like to write to do lists.
But I always think I might forget something.

So with the combination of inspiration from Laurel @ Ducks in a Row and her “Game Plan” …


and the format of my name notepad given to me by my mother-in-law:


I came up with my own version of My Weekly Schedule” that works for me! I wanted something that would keep me consistent in my cleaning, appointmentserrands to run, calls or emails to make, what type of exercise I was going to attempt (if any), and even what meals I am cooking on what nights. (Really, do you see how hard I’m trying?!)

So here is my attempt at a 5 step tutorial:

1. I created my schedule on excel. (I would be more than happy to send you a copy of the format if you would like).


2. I printed it off on linen paper and cut it according to the size of an old note pad backing.


3. I punched holes.


4. I used a small perforator to make lines along the top so I could rip each week off.


5. Tied with a ribbon.

Seriously - that easy and CHEAP!

Now I should never miss any cleanings, appointments, exercises or dinners… Yeah right!
