FREE Homeschool + Ministry + Home Management Planner (10 Pages!)

I'm a "fixer." I'm always tinkering, never satisfied, always searching for a "better" way. It can be both a blessing and a curse. I try to share my tinkerings here so that the blessing aspect of being nit-picky can outweigh how irritating this part of my personality is (my poor husband!).

When I was looking for a planner at the beginning of my school year, I wanted something that covered EVERYTHING. I don't want one planner for school, another for home and appointments, another for my blog, and another for church/ministry obligations. I need it all in one place, and as much as I heavily rely on my phone to remind me of stuff, I still want a physical print-out to help me manage my time. 

I was looking for something that would work for someone who homeschools, runs a home, meal plans, AND either works from home or is involved heavily in ministry (which is about 90% of the homeschool moms I know!).

Here's what I had in mind:

  • A Daily "Docket"- I wanted to see my most urgent things-to-do, make notes about appointments and obligations, keep track of prayer needs of friends and family, make note of what we planned to eat that day and any shopping or prep-work needed, a way to track small steps toward a big goal, and reminders for important school events (like finally grading some work... right?). Not to mention a way to track my water intake, time spent exercising, and a reminder to work on a new verse to memorize.

  • PLUS, I wanted a running checklist for three main areas of my life: School, Work/Ministry, Home Management. I like to take the approach of having a running list of important things so that I can have the satisfaction of checking them off. I tend to use notebooks for this, but end up with a variety of notes, all over the house. I'm nothing if not asynchronous in my passion to BE organized juxtaposed against my incredible, scatter-brained, disorganization.

  • I also wanted a planning sheet to keep up with each of my student's current work. I wanted to have ONE list of what curriculum (or living book) we are using for each subject, how much time we have blocked for that particular subject each day, and a way to indicate that each book or curriculum had been completed. When you use a running list of living books, you can lose track of who's reading what and what's next. Plus, in this way, it doubles as a reading log.

  • AND, I wanted a place to jot out a general schedule for our week, using time blocking (because time-blocking and timers are how we get anything done at all!).

  • Once I had this big-picture, "week-at-a-glance" mentally sketched out for the whole family, I wanted a way to record where I would be (who I would be with) and what I would be working to accomplish during each block of the day. So, I also wanted a daily plan to flesh out what my weekdays and then weekend days would look like.

  • And what's a good printable collection without a goal tracker, right? Whether it's a homeschool project, a home improvement project, or a blog project, we always have something going on. I wanted a way to set a goal, break it into phases, then record those phases. I use steps from this only my daily docket to make progress toward whatever the goal might be.

  • On top of all of that for my home, homeschool, and other responsibilities- I have a blog! So, I ALSO wanted two pages of running checklists that are blog-specific plus a "Blog Balance Sheet" to keep up with the various expenditures of running a blog.

Because I'd created this perfect planner in my mind... I couldn't find anything close that I was satisfied with AND even when I did, I was having to piece things together. Being a bit OCD, I was annoyed that they didn't match. What's a girl to do but make her own, right?

And so I did, and you can have them too! In this download, you will receive 2 files. One is specific to Homeschool + Home Management+ and any kind of work or ministry obligations. The second file simply adds a few blogging tools in the even you need it.
