I was wondering if anyone here follows Flylady for keeping their homes clean and organized, and if so, do you maintain a separate control journal as suggested in the website or is it a part of your planner? Or in general, do you have a separate planner for purely home related matters and another for work/outside?
Others are also welcome to comment:
- I carry a letter size leather Circa planner for work + personal projects currently and am against bulking it up too much beyond its current capacity. This has
> my work projects list
> next action list for work projects
> weekly review checklist
> my personal projects list
> errands list
> home chores/repairs list
> next action list for personal projects/errands/home repairs
> Goals list/notes
> Weekly todos/ Monthly projects
> Ideas and strategies notes
> Few important contact numbers/reference info that I need at work or on-the-go regularly
This planner does not contain any of my daily repetitive routine activities currently. Am in the process of keeping a backup of this on an iPad app.
- I have just joined Flylady and in the Flylady control journal, the following items are supposed to be covered by me:
>Daily Routines including
Before Bed routine
Post work routine at home
>Weekly Routine, that is, which day of the week will be used for cleaning/doing up which part of home and recurring chores/errands, etc
>Shopping list and groceries
>Emergency and other ocntact numbers
>Detailed cleaning lists for each zone of the house
- Should I just create a slim booklet which I can use as my Flylady home control journal that I carry around with me and use roughly at home? Or would it be better if I incorporated the above in my Circa leather letter planner and figure out a way of putting the contents down so that it does not go beyond a few sheets only.
- I also have a separate Personal Finance planner which is a junior Circa notebook which I look at only during the weekends when am going through bills,making payments, recording spends, planning investments etc. I was planning to migrate this entirely to an iPad app.
Any thoughts/ suggestions on merging/demerging of planners would be most welcome. Thanks all.
