I have really been loving my mini daily planners. Well, I have actually been using them as weekly planners. Every Sunday I print out a fresh planner, copy over any postponed meals or unchecked items on my to-do list, and rethink the coming week. I’ve especially appreciated having my goals staring me in the face, to remind me of the things that often require an ongoing commitment to, but sometimes get pushed aside.
After losing one of my mini planners (they are kind of small after all), I prettied-up one of the composition books that are cheap right now because of back-to-school, and added a pocket to slip my planner into. It is just a piece of scrapbook paper adhered with decorative tape. When the planner is not in my pocket I try to keep it in my notebook, which is also a great spot to write down details for the the things already in the mini planner.
