Print your weekly planner instead of buying one. That’s what I’m doing! I like Amy’s printable Weekly Planner page that she created for her MomAdvice readers. I like the weekly “To Do” list and the ample space provided for writing down what’s going on all 7 days of the week (since the mom “work week” is 7 days long!).

I always go crazy right after Christmas if I don’t have a calendar for January ready to write in, so I’m going to create mine now and put it in a 3-ring binder to keep open by my phone in the kitchen. This will work even better than the types of planners I usually use because each 8.5×11 sheet is one week, so I can arrange the pages to view 2 weeks at one time. This will help me look ahead to the week coming up without flipping the page. Thanks Amy!
