21 Days to a More Organized Home: My Planner

I apologize for this post being so late. I haven't been able to secure good pictures of my planner so I didn't want to post until I had them.

I picked my particular planner for its layout. It offers several sections for each week labeled "Mine," "Theirs" and "Meals." This is great because I can put my work schedule in, the Mortician's schedule and meetings, my blog posting schedule, and our meals for the week all in one spot. I couldn't be happier!

At the beginning of each month is a "Month at a Glace" page along with a To Do List and Projects list for the month. Nice to have these all in one spot.

To get started with my planner, I gave it a name. I decided it was a she because of the pink and flowers (I honestly hate pink) and it reminded me of Pepper Potts from Iron Man, so I named her Pepper. I love the name Pepper and I felt this worked wonderfully for my planner.

Next I color coded. Black is the Mortician, Green is my blog, Red is my personal stuff, and purple is my work schedule! If I need more colors, I will introduce them later on, but this works well for now.

What did you name your planner? Did you make it or buy it? I'd love to know!

Look Alive!

  1. Blogger can be a wanker when it comes to pictures... o_o

    I love that you named your planner after Pepper Pots... Just too awesome. =D

    I bought my smaller planner that I carry with me, but since I couldn't find one that had both weekly & monthly pages in a format & size I liked, I added in month at a glance pages. They're not in front of each month as I like, but they're there, and that's what counts. ^-^

    I made my 'Our Home' binder from all different things I found online. There are some totally amazing & terribly organized women out there... I hoping to someday be one of them. ^-^

    Hope you're having a good week!
