10 Unique Ways You May Love Using Your Planner

1.  Track your Mood

Tracking your mood daily.  With a simple emoticon, like a happy face, sad face, grumpy face, pissy face.  So, when your family says “You’ve been crabby lately,” you can flip open your planner, point out those happy faces, and reply, “Nope, I don’t thiiiiiiink so!”

 

2.  Gratitude 

I fail here a lot.  It’s not that I’m not thankful, but I need to be more disciplined in taking note of it. Go back over your past weeks and find what you were thankful for. Set a reminder for the next week ahead to send a card, email, or call someone just to thank them. It will go a long way for both of you.

 

3.  Health & Symptoms

I have Hashimotos and complicated migraines.  I can tell when my levels are off,  just by glancing in my planner.  Track your meds and symptoms. No, this has nothing to do with tracking my mood…grumble…see happy faces in my planner…(sticking out tongue).

 

4.  Volunteer Work & Donations

Everyone can help a little more. You’ve been meaning to…well, write it dow! Plan it. If you plan it, you will do it.  I have a monthly plan to donate things around the house.  I need to continually downsize and it’s a perfect time to share clothes, appliances, and toys not being used.

 

5.  Memories

Go back and note memories of the day in empty spaces in your planner. Those little tid bits that made you smile. This turns your planner into more than a planner.  It’s like a brief history of life’s little journeys. So, when your child asks, “Can we get a kitten?” and you reply, “I’m allergic, we can’t be in the same house.” and they reply back, “That’s ok you can sleep outside.” Yeah…priceless.

 

6.  Yard, Garden, & Indoor Plants

Time to spray? Water? Yep, it’s all in my planner! My cactus truly believed it lived in a desert until I started to water regularly.

 

7.  Household maintenance 

We know you schedule your cleaning and laundry, but how about changing air filters, washing outside windows, air-conditioning/heater maintenance, and cleaning out those house vents?  You can actually save your families lives by scheduling to clean your dryer vents and to change fire alarm batteries to help to prevent potential fires.

 

8.  Crafts 

I could collect Pinterest pictures until the cows come home but I’m on craft picture overload. I list the projects I plan to do, the materials required, and check them off the list. Typically, I will use the sidebar in my planner for this if I only plan one project for the week.  Yeah right!  Insert more sidebars here;)

 

9.  No Spend Goals

Do you find yourself a collector of crafting supplies, an Amazon junkie or a Target $1 bin dumpster diver? Me too. I have a huge tendency to overspend. Putting spend limits in my planner or no spend weekly goals in my calendar helps me keep some control.  Except when buying stickers from Planner Squad…it’s ok to get stickers from Planner Squad…I’m just saying…some things just shouldn’t be banned…

 

10.  Blog Stats, Posts, & Social Media

Are you a blogger, a pinner, or a socialite spinner? Use your planner for Blog stats,  Blog Posts, and Social media posts!  I have started using my Blog Planner Insert—designed especially for my planner for blog tracking.  It’s a tad easier if you track it in your planner or better yet if you try the Blog Planner Inserts  because there is more room for writing and tracking your posts.

The Blog Planner Insert set comes with adorable tracking stickers and a dashboard, too! You can punch and add them anywhere you want into your planner.
