I am not, by nature, an organised person, but I am determined to at least not get overwhelmed this year!
I’m off to a good start with my ‘brain dump journal’ system – a super simple way to just get all the ‘stuff’ out of my head in a somewhat organised fashion.
I’m using my free printable monthly calendar to make sure everyone else in the family know’s who needs to be where and when, and I also created a simple weekly planner to help me keep on top of day to day commitments.
I find the weekly planner super useful for making sure I manage to juggle work and family commitments.
I use it as a mouse pad so it’s always right there when I am working at the computer, and I scrawl all over it with things I need to do, things I need to remember, appointments, ideas, inspiration… anything and everything.
You could also use it as a family planner, filling it in at the start of each week and popping it up on the fridge so everyone can keep track of what is going on.
This is a new, updated version of our weekly planner.
This free printable is an A4 sized pdf file, if you are printing on US ‘letter sized’ paper be sure to select ‘fit’ or ‘shrink to fit’ from your printer options.
All Picklebums free printables are for personal use only, you may not sell, share, or link directly to these files.
Don’t forget I also have a free printable A4 sized 2015 Calendar and an A5 sized free printable calendar which fits perfectly into my brain dump journal. Now you have no excuse not to at least try and be organised!
