Today is a New Day Printable

Hi everyone! If you'll remember back a couple weeks ago I posted about starting each day with a plan and organizing your day.  I don't know if it's helped any of you, but it has sure helped me get a lot more done each day.  Anyway, I really liked the printables I had listed there, but neither were exactly what I wanted.  So I decided to make my own.  I was so excited to try this, and I even made those water bottles from a real picture of a water bottle.  New technique for me and I was so impressed with myself for figuring it out. lol  Here's the link: Today is a New Day

Today is a New Day

I printed mine out at my local copy place and had them laminate it, too.  Then each night, after the kids are all in bed and I'm relaxing for a bit, I take 5 min. and plan out my next day.  It's really been working well, and it helps me sleep better, too.  Why, you might ask?  Because as soon as my head would hit the pillow a million things that I needed to do the next day would start racing through my head. lol I know I'm not the only one who does this, right?  Now, I've already gotten at least most of those things planned out or there's no room to add anything else anyway.  It really does help me fall asleep faster.  Try it!

A big shout out and a thank you to Krista Sahlin for letting me use her buttons on this to share with you.  They were a freebie from her site here.  I also want to thank Summer Driggs for letting me use the rick rack on this, too.  They were a freebie from this kit here.

Anyway, I hope someone else might find this helpful. I'd be happy to change any of the box headings if you'd like, too. Just let me know.

This is such a great idea. I often end up writing a million notes to myself each day and having a stack of these to work with would make my days run much more smoothly. Thank you for posting!

This is a great printable! If you ever get a chance, I'd love a copy that said "Homeschool" instead of "Blog" :-)

Great printable - water bottles look great! That's my weakness - I'm a southern girl & love my sweet tea... Hey, sweet tea is mostly water, though, right? :-) thanks for linking up! I'm sharing on facebook, too.

Amy D said...

I created one and linked it to THIS week's WFMW and although mine is different, I felt like I should give you credit for the idea of actually CREATING one. I linked your post to mine. I hope that is okay. I certainly do want to give you credit, but also wanted to share with my readers (all 5 of them) what worked for me! Thanks for the inspiration. :)

(and for some reason, I still can't remember to drink water every day!) I didn't put water on mine, maybe I need to!)
