Last week Erin over at Sunny Side Up posted about her time management binder. I have been following her blog for awhile and I LOVE how organized she is! I actually got to meet her at the Queen Bee Market in November. We were both shopping at Lindsey's booth and i totally blog stalked her and said "hey you're Erin!"
ANYWHOO... back to the time management binder. I loved how she wrote that it was a place for everything running around in her mind. I decided to ,make one myself because that is just what I needed. Here is my version of the Time Management Binder.
I got the cute binder from Target. Everything is more fun if it starts out cute.
I broke it down into 8 sections. Allow me to walk you through it?!?
#1 - Daily Planning.
This has my minute by minute schedule for the day. I sit down at the end of each day and plan out my day tomorrow. I make a list of goals on one side (costco, workout, devotional, laundry, dishes, etc) and on the other I plan out the hours (6:00am coffee & devos, 7:30 wake girls breakfast, 9:00 Pennie nap - mommy chores, etc)
In here I also have my check off lists from Clean Mama. I have the Weekly Cleaning Schedule, the Monthly Cleaning Schedule, and the Fitness & Weight Loss Tracker. If you haven't checked out Clean Mama you need to NOW!
#2 - Shop For-Menu Planning
Erin had a great idea of putting 4 post it notes on a page with each store that you need to visit. I have one for Costco, Grocery, Target, and Crafts/Etc. I can just easily jot down the items that I need and take that post it with me. Easy Peasy!! Also I have lined paper in there for menu planning and a couple sheet protectors to slip in recipes.
#3 - Current Projects
This section has everything that I am working on. A working list and how I am going to accomplish it.
- Hang Photos
- Stretch Fabric over frames
- Paint table, tray, and frames
- Organize Garage
#4 - House Ideas
This has my list of BIG projects that I want to do for my house.
- Replace Bathtub/shower
- Build a bench/Kitchen Nook
you get the idea. I also use Clean Mama's FREE PRINTABLE of Project Planner in this section.
#5 - Yellowmedaisy
This currently has a list of all my blog posts, but it also will have meeting notes of my time with Holly, project ideas, inventory, etc.
#6 - Green Valley Church
This is for my other job - Children's Director. I have all my blog posts scheduled there as well as to-do lists and event planning.
#7 - Personal Goals
In here I have Clean Mama's printable of Fitness goals, Weight Loss Goals, and just a simple lined paper with personal goals.
If you can't read it some of them are:
- read more to my girls
- play outside more
-see the bottom of all 3 laundry bins!!- Go to a nursing home (our New Year's Resolution of being generous)
- Go on a date (Jan)
- Go on a date (Feb)
- Visit my grandparents (in L.A.)
- Complete all chores under January
- Finish our bedroom
Hoping to get all of these checked off by February!
#8 - Misc.
Extra paper, sheet protectors, and printables.
I have been using this for a week now and i LOVE LOVE LOVE it!! It helps me to think clearer because I'm not constantly REMEMBERING!
it's also PERFECT to use with my Much Ado About You planner.
Hope Ya'll have a great weekend!
