Daily Planning vs. Weekend Planning

My daily set up and my weekend set up are totally different! During the week, I like having ½ hour slots, running from 6 am to 9 pm. During the weekend, well, it’s pretty much a running to do list. Now that’s the simplified explanation.

Daily Set Up

Starting with 6 am, I skip a line, continuing to 9 pm. The skipped line represents the half hour. Depending on the size of insert I’m using, all this either fits on the left hand page, or it continues on to the first couple of lines on the second page.

This set up helps me from over scheduling myself and putting too much on my plate, as it were. Yes, I do need a visual reminder of how many hours are in a day. I’m currently not color coding, but that will change with the next insert. I got out of the habit these past two months.



Weekend Set Up

On the weekend, I use a very different layout. My weekend pages are essentially a running list, with actual scheduled items at the top of the list and everything else listed underneath. I do have daily items (clean kitchen, pick up house) noted with a F S U. No, not Florida State University (GO GATORS!), but Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

  1. Love this planner & the fact that you use a different layout on the weekend! Adorable!

    Neat. I have a similar(ish)
    I write my lists first of everything I need to get done by day(s) and then color code them by priority category (Red = A, Orange = B, etc) and then prioritize each item under it’s category to what it most important (A1, A2, B1, B2, etc). So I can quickly visualize what needs my time first or what I can done quickly when I have just 5min. Anything that is left over from one day is added to the next day’s/week’s list.

    I prefer to plan – but never get around too it.
    I like schedules and routine – but somehow always get off track. This is very informative. I do keep my paper planner – somehow my iphone calender does not remind me. 🙂

    I love planning and lists. I have my big events list that is easy to see in my room, and then the detailed lists on my planner.

    I’m just a one big list kind of gal because depending on the day, I have to fit a variety of things into the ‘open’ time.
    Fortunately, however, my lists don’t have lists…

  7. I haven’t read a journal post in a few weeks! I just do daily lists for each day, but on the weekends you’ll find more cleaning tasks and sometimes I’ll even skip a day if I’m just planning on being lazy.

  8. i’m more of a bullet person only putting in times when important..

    I have tried so hard to find the right planner for me already made. Since I am not as creative as you (and Pinterest), I have resorted to keeping my lists digitally in Evernote. I can’t lie though, I really, really miss having a physical planner.

  10. Valerie says:

    That is a smart idea. I stay amazed at your organization skills.

    I still haven’t completely nailed the right organisational method for me yet – I tend to jump around between being super detailed and then not at all. One day!
