Weekly Family Planner – my solution to a productive household

So remember that post I did of my weekend to do list?  Yeah I am STILL working on that list and I did that post a month ago.  I have made a ton of progress and as with any to do list, more gets added.  So I started thinking about my todo lists and how I have no set way of making one every month.  I wanted something that was easy and manageable.

I love the idea of a family binder and I was thinking that there are a couple of key things that I write down on a daily/weekly basis.  So I made this Weekly Organizer.  I print it off on Sunday, use it for the week and then roll forward anything that didn’t get accomplished the week before into the next week.

I can keep it on the counter so that if my husband wants to add anything he can and that’s awesome.  It will help keep us both on the same page so we know what’s going on and we can get a lot accomplished.  My feeling is that if we can work together and be productive it is way easier than me trying to be productive for everybody.   Which then give us more downtime on the couch, fingers crossed!!!!!

Right now our Family ToDo list is pretty simple.

  • Page 1:  ToDos
  • Page 2:  Shopping (Grocery vs Non-Grocery)
  • Page 3:  Calendar – just for the week and has spots for meals and appointments
  • Page 4:  Every Day Tasks that you can just check off.

I am also attaching a template version of what is posted above.  It’s a Word document so then you can change it to be specific for your family.
