Planning for the Week Ahead

Hi everyone! Heather here. This week I’m going to let you take a peek into how I plan out my week. I got a new planner and have been trying to find a groove that works for me, I think I finally found it!

2014-12-07 21.24.20-1

I found some little label sheets. I start by coloring them with three different markers to match the heading boxes (The Morning, Day, and Night headings in my planner didn’t make much sense for me, but I loved the separation of items each day)

This month had a green theme, so three greens it was. It wasn’t a perfect match, but since most of the strips would be covered, I didn’t mind too much.

2014-12-07 21.40.00-1

I measure the height of the strips, and mark both edges with my pencil.

2014-12-07 21.34.54-1

I line up the edges on the cut line of my paper cutter then slice it up. Then I cut down the middle to give myself twice the amount of labels.

2014-12-07 21.50.00-1


I peel up the labels and add the cover to the existing strip. Once they are all finished, I’m ready to add my own headings.

Using Plan Everyday, I grab the To Do, Notes, and Work Stamps. I use Versafine Ink to stamp onto the labels. (Because I stamp onto the label, it’s not going to bleed through to the other side.)

2014-12-07 22.01.33-1


Using the same labels, I stamp my water tracking glasses, from Plan To Eat, three times per label.

2014-12-07 22.04.30-1

Then they get cut apart and added to each day of the week.

2014-12-08 08.01.17-1


I finish it off with the weather icons from Plan To Go and add the highs and lows for each day. And just like that, my week is planned. It’s pretty simple and I get to get crafty every Sunday, so it’s part of my favorite part of each week. What about you, when do you sit down to plan? Do you have a routine you do to make your planner more customized? I’d love to hear and see!

Until next time,
