Are you a mother that is managing many different tasks, people, and events? It’s difficult to remember everything, all the time so using a planner is one of your most important tools to save your sanity. When you write down what you need to remember and check your planner regularly your mind can relax and you can accomplish what you need to. There’s so many ways to use a planner. Here’s the tools I use to keep myself organized:
- I use a calender hanging on the wall,
- a control binder,
- a weekly planning planner,
- and a calender planner that are both the size of a checkbook,
- and a dry erase board that hangs in the kitchen,
- and I love post-it notes
- and small, chunky notebooks too!
Do what works for you. Maybe you could organize yourself in your i-phone.
I love dry erase boards.
Here’s a bigger dry erase board.
You can make a semi-permanent grid that is less confusing to read by using a ruler and wet erase markers to create a grid or calender. The wet erase markers can only be erased with water.
Here’s the tools I used:
And remember the post-it notes!
Also here’s another idea – Keep a small notebook by your bed to write down those flashes of inspiration you receive at bedtime. Who knows maybe that’s were you’ll get your ideas for your next Pulitzer Prize winning novel idea!
