The calendar is about to flip a new page, and you’re probably already starting to get antsy to begin checking boxes. Save money, check. Organize the closest, check. Cook at home more, check. But, have you considered how you want to go about tracking all of these things? Sure, checking boxes in a little journal would work, but you might already have what you need for a quicker and way more efficient tracking method. Just pull out your agenda and let’s work some magic!

Planning Meals

This is easy; use your daily calendar to break up what you’re eating each day. This is an awesome way to look forward to eating at home, and also can serve as inspiration for weeks to come.

Grocery Shopping

Now that you’ve broken up your meals by day, you have a better understanding of what you actually need to buy. Make a section at the bottom of the page and write out what you need from the grocery. It’s so satisfying to actually cross things off with a pen, plus if you ever wonder if you already bought something you can use it as a reference and flip back to previous weeks.

Building Routines

If you work a normal 8 AM-5 PM job, then you know just how important your precious time is before and after work. You may have an unofficial routine you tend to follow, but planning these times out is a great way to structure your days and make sure you can accomplish many things in the amount of time you have. Plus, you can essentially control how much time you have to lounge and rest. Start off by breaking up your day by the hour, and write this down in a week section of your agenda. Pick what accomplishments mean most to you and play around with different things.  Now, you’ll have a reference for what a productive morning or nighttime looks like.

Do this for morning and night. A routine will help your body recognize that it’s time to wake up or time to go to sleep.
