Set Up Your Days for Success {Day 10 to a Renewed You} - Are you ready to get back into a regular routine? Spend some time today setting your days up for success.

Today’s assignment is to get yourself a little more organized with a calendar, personal planner, or other work control system.

When I try to fly by the seat of my pants, I sometimes do okay. Other times, it’s a dismal failure. There’s only so much bandwidth in my brain. All my thoughts take it up — and I

  • forget to mail the rent check and have to deliver it in person
  • forget to change the laundry and have to rewash the musty duds that I find in the washer
  • forget to thaw the meat and end up taking much longer or more money to get dinner on the table.

These kinds of things have happened in the last few days all because I’ve thrown caution to the wind and let my to do systems fall by the wayside. Things like this could be easily avoided, making my life a lot less stressed.

So, what’s a girl to do?

Personally, I’m cleaning up my office and unearthing my clipboard and planner that got buried in the holiday chaos. If you want to join me, check out these posts:

    That’s the binder I use for my LifeAsMom inspired household binder! I love it and use a combo of folders/ dividers and page protectors to set it up. 🙂

  2. Back to school tomorrow!!! Printed out one of your blank weekly organizers to get ready. Was trying to find your “store” on the website to see if there was a 2015 calendar, and I couldn’t find your e store? Maybe I need more coffee??? =)

  3. HA! Found it! The new layout/no coffee threw me off…

  4. When I go in to purchase OLAM it still wants to charge $9

    • Are you on mobile or tablet? I’m not sure why it’s doing that. It’s fine on my desktop. I will refund you the $4 if it won’t go through correctly. So sorry for the inconvenience.

  5. I have a Day-to-Day Planner that I use and it works great with my work schedule, after school activities and appointments that are coming up. If I run out of room I also will type and print out extra stuff that needs to be done throughout the week. I make sure that I lay this out in plain sight to I can look at it throughout the day.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
