So the other week I talked about planning your meals, planning your day, and planning your chores. But you might be wondering what the best way to keep that all together would be? One of the best organizational tools you can use is a daily planner.
The other week I had the opportunity to sit and chat a little with my friend, Erin about a project that I’m starting and I asked her what she used to help plan her days and weeks. She suggested I check out Motivated Mom’s planners. As soon as I got home I checked out the planners and decided to try one out. I downloaded my planner and have been using it for a few weeks. It has a meal planning sheet, a daily to-do list, and chores broken down into small pieces, making it easier to get cleaning done.
It also has a section for hourly planning which works great for me as a work at home wife to be able to help plan my dead lines. Having this chart really pulls everything together, the meal planning, the chores planning, and the work planning. And you can store it all in a little book. Motivated Mom’s offers a half page planner if you have a smaller planner notebook or a full page planner (which I’m using) that you can keep in a regular size binder.
But does putting it all together work? Well, I worked about 60 hours last week, my house is clean, my laundry is done, I’ve got food in the freezer for the next week, and my kitchen in clean. The key is to stick with it!
So if you are having trouble putting it all together I’d recommend you check out the Motivated Mom’s planners! You can check out sample pages from the planners before you buy. Right now since only half the year is left you can get the planner for only $4. And in my opinion, it’s really worth it!
The other planner I enjoy is the Home Management Binder from Getting Freedom. This is the one that I current use since it is more of an overall planner whereas Motivated Moms is more of a daily planner.
