Before the week on two pages, I had a to-do list as my dashboard and a week on one page that I didn't really use but felt obligated to look at, LOL!
Below you see what I am currently using on my 8.5 x 5.5 planner. I created it myself and I usually print out a month at a time. Since I made the sheets myself, I like to add the weekly dates - but undated sheets are quicker to print.

I have four days on the left and 3 on the right, with another section for notes. On one side of each day I have space for a to-do list with circles to tick off each task as done. I like to write in my monthly bills on the to-do in red. You'll see in the photo that I write in an extra check box after the bill. I check that one off when it clears the bank. Just a little something I do to keep me on track with my finances.
My weekly page is the first page I go to after glancing at my dashboard. I look over the to-do list, see if there are any appointments coming in the next couple of days and glance at the week as a whole. I often will write reminders on my weekly page as well as use sticky notes to jog my memory to do something that doesn't have a firm to-do date. In the picture above I have a sticky to remind myself that it's time for me to buy my calcium supplement. As a transplant patient I take numerous medications and even though the doctor prescribed the OsCal, I tend to treat it as not as important as the other medication and might even let it go for a few days or weeks. That constant sticky note keeps nagging at me and even if I put it off, I'll move it to the next week until I take care of it. For the record, my hubby just brought it home for me. :)
Any questions about weekly pages? What works best for you? For Day 6 I will have my first 31 days printable for you: an undated version of my weekly pages!
