An Unusual Planner

As my big resolution at the end of 2011 I am on my quest to have a much better planned and organized life in 2012. After much research I ended up purchasing a couple of Franklin Coveys and my first Filofax (all about it here). Although I abandoned the FC binders shortly after and am still working on the set up of my Filofax, the one thing I was sure was that I couldn’t put all my plans in one single organizer.

After reading about WeekDate calendars at Plannerisms AND reading in someone’s blog (sorry, no link this time. I don’t remember where I read it) that the FlyLady system is very compatible with WeekDate, I decided to go for it! That planner would be just for house chores/work.

Throughout my digging here and there searching for a “perfect” organizational set up, I found this lovely idea by Jen Hewett.  Her concept is based on post-it reminders that we all once had placed around our monitors in an attempt to not forget tasks (important or not). You can read more about it on her own blog.

So… I decided to incorporate it to my WeekDate planner. 

On the left side – better saying on the back side – of the calendar I will stock up all the chores/ tasks that come to mind in no specific order like this:

Throughout the daily calendar then I will move and spread those tasks/chores into specific days like that:

If something can’t be done as planned I just move the sticker to another day. I am really making WeekDate’s “only write it once” motto happens!
Anyway, I hadn’t color coded anything yet as I want to make it as simple as possible but I may have to do it. I have been experimenting with it this past week and will be bringing my updates on that system pretty soon!
One more pic just for the fun of it and thanks again for reading my blog!
