Hi Rebecca, this is a great question! I'm actually going to do a follow up post and share how I plan ahead. I will say it doesn't take as long as it probably seems! I tend to ramble and make things seem a little more complicated than they are, lol. I do most of my weekly planning over the weekend, but I start on Wed-Thurs. and fit things in as I have time. I have a kind of timetable I follow and that is what I will blog about. Hopefully that will show how this all unfolds and how much time I actually invest in the overall planning. Thanks for your comment! :-)

Oh, amy ... your post made me smile! Good luck with your renovation! I hope you'll keep me posted. :)
Thanks, Lori! I too use weekends for catch up! :)
Thanks, Chrissy! :)
Thank you so much, Angie! I had to laugh at your question ... YES! I did find myself peeking inside and boy did I show it off to Bill when he got home! I let Little Bear take most of the credit. :)
Thanks, Jen! Yeah, I'm not a fan of the door thing. I never use it, lol!
Thanks, Penny! I'm on the mend now! :)
Thank you, Jen! :)
Thanks, Amanda! :)
Thanks, Christi! I am right there with you! :)
Thank you so much, Shirley. The tooth (site) is feeling much better now. :)
Thanks so much, Benita! I like the color-coding idea. I have considered that myself before ... I did a month-at-a-glance calendar in such a way last fall and ... well, I wasn't sure if I liked it or not, lol! I'm not really one for too much color, but it does make perfect sense. And I'm all about being more efficient in the planning! :)
Thanks, Jen! I have heard from several people about the issue with the disappearing ink. I've not seen any fading yet with my own pens but of course, it's hardly been warm here in New England recently! I will have to look into it further. I really, REALLY love how they write so I am going to hope there's a fix for this issue!
Thanks, Mary Ellen! :)
Thanks so much, Denise! As much as I love talking about planners I also love hearing about them! Thanks for sharing where you're at with your planning. I hope you are well!
Thanks, Helena! :)
