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
You can see last week’s plan here. Several family members were sick including me, so I didn’t accomplish everything I had planned. I did take my daughter on a date to get ice cream (free with coupon!), finished my ebook Affordable Gluten Free, had my son’s senior photos made and gave a $20 gift card to a family we don’t know, so I am happy with that.
This week I am focusing on organization again. I find that I am much more peaceful and productive when my home and my desk are organized, so I am working this week to make that happen. I am still praying and planning about the upcoming year as part of my organizing, and continuing with my morning “brain dump“ (read more here) and daily exercise.
One other thing that I will be working on this week (and probably forever) is openly communicating my respect and adoration for my husband. It is so easy for me to criticize, complain or simply focus on what’s going on in life, rather than really respecting and appreciating my husband.
