Weekend Warriors: Back to School Planning!


Happy Saturday my fabulous friends!
I'm back with my Weekend Warrior friends with tips and tricks for back to school!


Planning the first few weeks can be tricky.
You never know how long it'll take to complete the activities you plan...
...or what things may come up during the day.
I ALWAYS over-plan and find myself rewriting my plans from day to day.

Soooo this year, I wrote my plans on sticky notes!!
The things that aren't going to change, I wrote in like I would normally do.
But everything else is color coded and easy to change if needed!
(*my plans are usually much more detailed than this!*)


I don't like having to cross things off and move them around.
I REALLY don't like writing in pencil.
You might say I have some issues, tehehe. :)
I don't like messy plan books!
So now all I have to do is move the sticky note!
Or change it.
Because there are already a few things I want to add in/change. :)

Plus it just looks so pretty! :)

Once we get our routine down and I get to know my new little kiddos,  
I'll go back to writing them in like I normally do.

Happy planning!

Don't forget to check out my Warrior friends' back to school ideas!!

  3. What a great idea!!!! I change something every day or if we don't get to an activity I make arrows to the next day and everything get messed up. So smart!

  5. One year I did my plan book all in post it notes. It was great because then I could move things as needed. Plus it made it easy the next year, because I could just go pull the post it notes out, and move them to my new plan book!

  6. Wow! What a genius concept! I can not write in pen in a plan book. We'd be a good ying and yang =)
