BotO - Daily and Weekly Schedules

This is part six of content for the Brains of the Operation, aka Household Binder.

I've found it extremely helpful to have everything I am supposed to do in a day in one place. So while I have my cleaning schedules, it's nice to see what other things I need to do daily, along with cleaning everything. So I created the Daily Docket.

This template helps me see what we are having for dinner (Eat Me), the glasses of water I should be drinking (Drink Me), what needs to be cleaned daily (Clean Me), what needs to be done daily (To Do), paperwork I need to do (To Sort) and laundry that needs washed (Wash Me). There is also room for notes. I think I should have this one laminated as well.

I have created templates for all days except Sunday. Sunday is my day to be a lazy bum, so I don't actually schedule anything for that day.

This template lets me see my week at a glance - my Weekly Docket. I can see what we will be eating for dinner each night. Again, Sunday is my free for all where I schedule nothing, so it is missing from the week. This template lets me see a brief description of what I am supposed to clean/do, eat and then any activities I have planned for The Good Daughter. I also have a space for notes. This template would probably be more helpful laminated too.



I also have a daily food tracker to help me stay on top of my diet. I have spaces to count calories/points, or in my case carbs for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks and spaces to record my blood sugar numbers. At the top of the page I have a space to check off the daily allotment of water, protein, veggies/fruit and dairy and an exercise tracker. At the bottom of the template, I have space for notes as well as space to track my progress.

You can now get these printables and more in my Etsy Shop! 
 
The Daily and Weekly Docket includes the Today printable that features a new design and are now part of The Docket Pack and The Good Wife Home Management Pack. The Food Diaries are now part of The Health and Fitness Pack. You can also get CUSTOMIZED printables too!

I cannot get the first to templates to open. The only one I can get to open to view is the Food Journal (the very last one). Could you try updating the links again? thanks!

The Good Wife said...

Thanks for letting me know about the issue with the links. I believe I fixed it now. I hope they will work for you, Mrs. Tasha.

I love all your templates, is there any way to edit them to fit our home? for example we sdon't have children so we will not be doing diapers in the weekly cleaning list, we don't have loans to pay on the budget lists, so I was wondering if they could be edited

The Good Wife said...

Joni,
Just email me - there is a link on the right sidebar - and let me know the specifics and I will work on getting some templates to you.

Joni said...

you are fantastic, I will get you the details, and I do appreciate it. Your lists are great

The Good Wife said...

No problem! Thanks for reading.

I just want to say thank you! so many people come up with good ideas and they are more than willing to talk about them and get you all excited but then they don't share them. Or maybe they sell them and even if the price is "fair" it never seems to be in my budget. Thank you so much for being willing to contribute to my life! Thank you for your generosity!

hiya, thanks for allowing us access to your fantastic binder pages, they are so useful to me.
I was struggling with using a standard daily docket before, but when i found your one per day ones, that was amazing!
Are you by any chance able to share a blank copy that i can more tweak to fit our schedule please?
and also my machine is unable to print all the fonts you use, (esp. the lovely flourish under the name of the day, just get a blur) do you know where i can get them from please?
many thanks and keep up the good work, jo b

I'm new to the whole house wife thing and I can't believe how hard this job is. Now that I take it seriously I really needed help getting organized because every night when I went to bed I always felt like I didn't finish 101 things. Using your binder I now feel like I did accomplish everything I was meant to do that day. Thank you for helping me get a handle on things. Now I am starting to feel good at this job.

I just stumbled upon your blog and am completely addicted!! I think I've spent at least 3 hours on here! I love your BotO binder! Wowzers! I'm just now getting started on mine (9 years late but better late than never haha!). Your printables are great! Would it be possible to get them blank but fillable (new word ha!)

Thanks

Hello, I just found your site on Pinterest and I'm in love. I was wondering if you were still offering your templates for your daily and weekly docket? I would love to get my hands on them if you are. Can you please let me know. Thanks.

I can not even fathom doing all this every day along with a full time job, a toddler, three dogs and a fish tank. Somehow it seems like it's the perfect idea but I ... *thud* ...
