|I am using the dividers from the Vera Bradley 2014 Calendar and used my label maker to cover the months - |
I just didn't cover the back side yet.
So, I am back to those main five sections: calendar, future, projects, tasks and files. Actually, I divided the calendar section in to weekly and monthly and again, that is mostly a bookmark issue; it just makes it easier for me to get to what I need to.
I have found having a future section is brilliant. Before reading about that, I would have tried to include an entire year's worth of calendars. I have 2 sheets, back and front, inside this section and have divided the page and listed 3 months on each. This week I traveled to Vanderbilt for a regular (every 4 months) appointment with my kidney doctor. With my 5 year (new) kidney anniversary approaching, new tests were scheduled for June.
I had a number of appointments for my mom and I (she is 6 years post transplant) that I am keeping up with. I turned to my Future section, found June and could see when I would be available for my appointments - it works so nicely. We have 2 appointments each that I wrote in. I wrote on a small post-it that we could eat but it needed to be something light, 4 hours before the appointment - I'll transfer that small post it and another note to my weekly pages the closer we get to June.
Since the holidays have passed, my projects section has gotten slimmer a basketball schedule, a tracker for online purchases, my bills checklist and a couple of other items that I am wanting to pursue that needed a landing place.
The tasks section has remained empty but I have ideas and plans, such as a master packing list for road trips, a quest for the perfect cleaning/chores system and a list of things to do that don't have a specific due date.
My Files section is full and I am okay with that! I keep and index of the contents but instead of using sticky page tabs to locate them, I decided to buy A-Z tabbed dividers to use.
My weekly pages (format) change often as well as my planner dashboard but these sections/files will probably always stay the same just because they work - and they work well.
