Being organized helps you to save money and live your true priorities!
My favorite way to stay organized is to make a weekly plan to ensure that I am focusing on what is truly most important in my life, rather than just staying busy.
I have used lots of different planners, but I am currently hand-writing my plan each week just because it makes me happy.
I divide my plan into five categories:
PERSONAL-habits that keep me healthy and happy
PEOPLE-activities that promote relationship with the people I love
PURPOSE-tasks that enable me to fulfill my purpose in life
PASSION-activities and experiences which enable me to enjoy life
PROJECTS-priority tasks that need to be finished this week
This week I am focusing on getting the house organized and cleaned up from the holidays and continuing to plan for 2013. I am continuing with my morning “brain dump“ (read more here) and daily exercise. I am also adding a cutoff time for eating because I find that I eat in the evenings sometimes when I am not hungry.
You can see last week’s plan here including some great printable planners to help you stay organized in the New Year!

Hello, I just find this and is very helpful, but I don’t get what are the week green circles for, can someone explain it to me?
Hi Danni! I use the circles to mark off each day that I have completed my goal in that area – for example, if I want to drink 6-8 glasses of water a day I would write “water” on the line and then I mark off the circle next to “water” if I accomplish that goal each day. Hope that helps 🙂
Absolutely love your site & your visuals. I have been a list maker literally my whole life. I am constantly making lists for myself & my family.
One question… I don’t have Facebook, so how can I get my hands on the customizable weekly plan?
You can now download the planner when you subscribe to The Peaceful Mom. Click here and add your email address at the bottom of the page. Once you confirm your subscription, you will receive an email with the download link. 🙂
This planner looks awesome. Just wondering what the little bubbles under the days of the week are used for?
Thanks Brandy! The circles are to mark off the days that I do those items. 🙂

I have already cleaned out and organized almost every room in the house, even the attic. I love an organized home….now if it can just stay that way a little while..
Thank you SO much, this is a wonderful tool. I really like what you have planned!! Happy New Year!
You are very welcome Tammy. Happy New Year to you too!
This is awesome! I’ve been stressing because I can’t find the planner I used last year for this new year. Duh,! I can handwrite one for myself each week! And I love all the colors you’ve used for yours. I am so blessed to have people like you share their talents! Thanks.
So glad I could give you the idea. 🙂

I plan on cleaning up and organizing my house before my college classes start next week. I did my boys rooms and my room last week, so now all that’s left is the livingroom, kitchen, laundry room, and both bathroom 🙂
You can do it Jennifer!
