Erin Condren Life Planner Update

A few months ago I shared how I use my Erin Condren life planner. I'm always reevaluating the best way to use my planner, and I thought I'd try something new for 2015. I'm posting this to help keep myself accountable to my goals and to provide some inspiration for you, too!

I still plan to use the daily morning section for appointments and the afternoon section for my work schedule/tasks, but I think I'll use the night section for dinner plans now that my husband is on day shift and we'll be eating dinner together more often (yay)! I'll still use the left lined column for a list of to-dos but at the end of it I'm adding a quote of the week for inspiration.

At the bottom of each weekly page are several lines to use for miscellaneous purposes. This year I'm using these as a place to record weekly goals and tasks in several categories:

Books (for keeping track of my reading challenge tasks and assigned committee reads)
Blog (scheduling at least one weekly blog post)

Health (working on creating healthy habits)
Home (cleaning, organizing, and other home tasks)
Family (things to do with my husband and son)
Finances (reminders to help us reach our financial goals)

Up until now, I've been using the life planner's monthly spreads for keeping track of paydays, bills due, and other expenses, but I decided to get a separate monthly calendar for this purpose so that I could leave it at home where my husband can also reference it. I like that it just has the monthly spreads and a page of notes in between (where we can record our budget for that month and track our debt payoff progress).

Luckily I had a gift card and coupon code, so I only had to pay shipping for the monthly calendar...I love a good deal! If you want to save $10 on your first Erin Condren order, feel free to use my referral link.

How do you organize your monthly/weekly schedule, goals, and to-dos?
