it took me some time, but i finally decided on my 2015 calendars and planners.
1. patterned wall calendars – i’ll be using one of these for both my house and my office. i usually use a kraft calendar in my office, but i’m going a little crazy and adding color this year.
2. kraft monthly planner – this planner is how i keep track of when bills are due. it’s a good size to clip in the one bill i actually have to pay by check – plus the lines on the side help me keep track of what i owe.
3. weekly planner sheets – the weekly planner is what i use daily and this was the option i kept changing my mind on. it was between these sheets and the kraft weekly planner. i plan in general and not daily, so each week i make a list on the lined pages of what i want to get done – adding things as the come up. on the weekly part i will write down any hard deadlines, appointments, meetings and birthdays. since i use the lined pages more than the weekly pages i put the holes on the opposite side than the sheets were designed for. using a mini binder works better for me than the already spiral bound planner because i like the flexibility of adding in more sheets on really busy weeks.
4. stick any where calendars and mini calendars – this year i am going a different route than i have in the past couple of years for planning for big projects. i’m testing out a new size spiral notebook that has lined pages on one side and the dot grid on the other side. with this i’m going to be using the fill in the date sticker calendars. this gives me the flexibility to use a notebook for each major project.
hope your off to a great start with your 2015 planning.
