Welcome to Month by Month:

This blog is my own little version of organization central. We touch on just about every aspect of home, family, and holiday organization here. It is my hope that by blogging my experiences, I can grow as an individual and perhaps inspire others to try new things and think about everyday life a little differently. So please join us in organizing for life every month of the year!

Monday Planners, Posts, and Life Revamp

I thought it was about time I checked in here at Month by Month and gave you an update on life.

                                            (I printed this free cover just to mix it up for summer)

There's so much that's been happening that its really hard to get back on track so we will start small today as I share my planner and how I am using it as a home notebook. Actually this is the last month I will be using this size planner for my home as next month I'll upgrade to the larger 8 1/2 by 11 size for my home needs but I have been using this size for the last year and a half.

Here's my June monthly view....the planner itself is pretty blank but there are so many free printables and fun things out there to decorate it with. I am using this monthly cover and I'm sad to say I forgot who I printed it from....if anyone knows or if the creator sees this please let me know so I can give credit. It is super cute! Of course all of June is not filled in because things will "hop" into my life and I'll need to update it accordingly.

Here's the weekly view and I hesitated to show it because my handwriting is so sloppy...when I wrote in it I didn't realize I'd be sharing it....and i usually have better printing. (ugh). The blank spaces up at the top are to be filled in with appointments and errands and such but I'm a bit behind because we are coming into the week off a holiday weekend!  Let me tell you what the planner typically looks like.

1. Space for appointments
2. Space for Errands and other Must Dos
3. Meds reminder
4. Email reminder (since I'm recently been elected to the school board I need to check it more)
5. Exercise reminder (which isn't on here yet)
6. Water Tracker (again isn't on there yet.)
7. Menu
8. Daily tasks (middle portion)
9. Room of the Day cleaning schedule (bottom)

Just for fun let me show you a couple other weekly versions from earlier. Each week I mix it up a bit on how I layout the week but it keeps me on my toes!

And another.........

So that's a little peek into my life lately. FYI. This is the Happy Planner (MAMBI) and it is available at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. There are several different versions with different covers and layouts so choose carefully! There is also the larger version available...it starts with July 2016 so I'll be sharing that set up next month.
