I ended up buying the smaller version of this Ban.do planner, and I shared it on Instagram and Facebook. Well, guess what? I ended up not keeping it! 😱 I KNOW! I really, REALLY wanted a spot with times for me to write what I wanted to accomplish during that time frame.
While I was at Target, I found these 5.5 x 8.5 Mara-Mi binders. Right next to the planners were these Avery agenda inserts, so I bought those and some note pages. The daily planner starts at 8 and ends at 5, and I figured that’s okay for now, though I usually start my day around 5:00 A.M. I kept toying around with all of this, and I realized what I really wanted to keep track of are my health and fitness goals and my prayer and Bible reading. I’m not ready to hold on to two different planners, but I figured the Avery inserts would be good for daily and weekly Bible reading and praying, and these printable food and wellness pages would help me stay focused on my health and fitness goals.
I purchased the downloadable file because I want to be able to print them out whenever I want to. Plus, I have access to a printers, copy machines, paper cutters, and hole punchers. Be sure to take a look at this Etsy find; if you don’t want to print yours, the Etsy seller also offers a notepad version. Read more: Continue reading →

Three things I plan on teaching my incoming sixth graders this year is planning, organization, and goal setting. I’ve been reading several articles and books on the subject, and while doing so, I realized I never really learned how to stay organized when I was a kid. I remember binder and backpack checks, but I never kept agendas or organizers. In high school and college, I didn’t use agendas, but I wrote things down in a ratty little notebook I carried around. Once I got a Palm Treo back in 2008ish, I kept everything in my phone.
After visiting the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in San Francisco last week, I saw so many cute agendas! I type up the majority of my to-do items in a Google Calendar and sync it to my iPhone, but I do realize there is power in writing down goals, plans, and to-do lists and checking off those items.
What if I’m overwhelmed with the idea of using an agenda?
How can I use my agenda or planner effectively?
What should I put in my agenda?

Tell me: How do you stay organized? Are you Team Electronic or Team Write It Down? Can you recommend a favorite agenda?
