As you may have figured out by now, we love being organized. My idea of a fun day is sorting out and tiding cupboards or shopping for even more notebooks (I’m currently totally in love with the colourful Leuchtturm ones).
So, having recently shared how we schedule and plan our renovation projects in the house, we thought we’d also share how we keep on top of our day-to-day appointments and general stuff we need to remember.
Yep, yet another totally high tech solution – a piece of paper in a frame! We do of course have a few additional ways of keeping track of things, but this one works great as a way of keeping an overview of the things we need doing throughout the month.
This DIY whiteboard couldn’t be easier to make. All you do is design a perpetual calendar, frame one you already have or print the template that we used (which you can download here) and then stick it in in a frame (we use this one). Done.
We use a whiteboard pen (this is the one that we have) to write on the glass. It works amazingly well and really does wipe off easily.
Something that I love most about this calendar, is the way that you can easily move and change appointments and dates around – just wipe and rewrite. It’s so easy to keep it neat, tidy and up to date.
How do you keep on top of your to-do list? Do you use a whiteboard, a paper diary or do you prefer to keep an online calendar?
