WorksForMeI am a “to-do” list kind of woman. I have to write everything down or I will forget it. Being a mom to four children doesn’t allow for much room in my brain for remembrance of detailed daily tasks. If my head wasn’t attached to my neck, I would probably loose it most days.

Every year in December I start looking for a planner that will carry me through the following year. I have a few simple features that I look for in a daily planner and I have yet to find one that meets all of my needs.

Last year I decided to create my own daily planning sheet. I needed all of my information to be organized on one page when I opened up my planner. I didn’t want to flip through multiple sections to find everything that I needed. I wanted the convenience of everything on one page.

So here is a breakdown of the daily planner I created:DailyPlanner

  • The top of the planner allows me a place to put the date as well as write down any notes for that day.
  • On the left hand side, you will find a section for Today’s Menu Plan. This is where I write down what I am cooking for breakfast, lunch and dinner for the day.
  • To the right of this is a section for my Daily Bible Verse. I fill this in so I can refer to my verse throughout the day for inspiration
  • You will also find a section for me to put my To-do List for the day, as well as a section to write down any Appointments I might have for the day.
  • And last, but not least, is a section for me to mark off my water intake for the day. I try to drink at least eight, eight ounce glasses a day. This allows me to keep track of how many glasses of H2O I drink.

  8. I love your planner page!

    You KNOW I’m a list lover. I even write stuff down that I’ve already done, just so I can cross it off. I’m so dorky.

  9. Oh, great idea – I wish I would have thought of this – I bought one planner and wrote it all up for the first qtr – and now I don’t like it – so I bought another one and it is just waiting for updates!

  10. Shynea,

  12. OMG!!! You have done it again… I sware I hear air passing through my brain if I dont write anything down. Forget about remembering with a very active 3yr old and 14wk old boys. Somebody tell Jesus to help this woman get it together….LOL


    • Dear Chrissy,

      I’m glad that you like the planner! I’m working on some more downloads so hopefully those will be beneficial to you too.

      Take care,

  13. I love your downloads, they are great!!!

    • Dear mychele06,

      I aim to please! I will be making more downloads now that the summer is here and my schedule is less chaotic. 🙂

      Take care,
