After a bit of an unscheduled break over the past month I am trying to catch up on some planning so I thought I would share the link for my Calendar pages that I print out and keep on my desk as my personal reminder of what is going on.
I am using the 2020 Planning Pages from Activity Village. It is one month per page and they always include at least 2 versions of each month so you can select the colour/theme that suits you. (There tends to always be one page for Northern Hemisphere and one for the Southern Hemisphere.)
For my uses I simply create two holes at the top and tie the pages together with a colourful ribbon. Then I jot down all the activities that we have signed up for – everything from one-off workshops to our weekly classes. I also include planned trips that we want to do with the kids (like English Heritage sites) and possibly holidays.
This year we are also including some of our own deadlines – my daughter wants to do a yearlong project which needs to be completed by a set date so to help keep us on track we are creating our own mini-deadlines for when we want to have certain stages completed. Just our way of making sure we stay on top of the project and don’t leave everything to last month.
I used the 2019 pages last year and I must admit I used them for the whole year – which was a first for me – in the past I have printed out planning pages and then changed part way through the year. So as straight forward an idea as it may sound having a hard copy lying on my desk really worked well.
