My TODO Lists

 Between homeschooling my kids, working part time, keeping house, running errands, selling our old house, and building a new house (want me to keep going?), my life feels like it is snowballing out of control. I'm afraid I won't take care of everything I'm supposed to in a timely fashion. I've perused Pinterest quite a bit, and followed some of my favorite blogs, looking for the perfect daily or weekly planner for me, but sadly could not find the perfect one. The one I'd want to use every day. The one that would keep me from dropping all the balls I'm currently juggling. The one that would track house projects, cleaning projects, exercise & food, and people to call. Nothing too picky, right? 

So, I decided to make my own. I wanted something simple that would let me check off a simple cleaning list that would help me easily keep the house clean and keep me motivated to get it done because it could be done quickly. I also need something to write down the important things I have to do today and people I need to call. I also wanted to start meal planning, so there also needed to be a place for that.  With all my needs/wants, I decided to make two lists. One to give me an overview of what I should do today, tomorrow, and sometime later in the week, and one that would give me the chores I have to complete today to keep my house nice.

Here's what I came up with. 

I'm still playing around with it, but I think my weekly and daily cleaning lists are where I want them to be for now. I'm thinking about maybe making a monthly one too, but will have to see how my weekly and daily lists keep me movtivated and on track. :) I'm also playing around with my monthly food & exercise log. It works, but isn't as pretty as I want it to be, plus I found some other cool features I wanted to add to it. Guess it will have to wait for some more free time!
