Straight and Curly Ep 45: Planning out your week

Planning Your Week

Vanessa from our Straight and Curly group on Facebook asked:

I was wondering if you could do an ep on planning out your week? I usually try to sit down over the weekend to work out what’s on for the week ahead: work, husband’s shifts, kid things, appointments; and then meal plan and work out what else needs to be done in and around that. Just wondering if you have any good tips or if anyone else has ideas on streamlining it. I always achieve a whole lot more when I do it!

Do Carly and I have ideas about planning? Um, yeah 🙂

Some of the things we cover in this ep:

  • Meal planning/ordering the shopping online to be delivered in time for the weekend
  • Kelly’s ‘two-pad system’ for organising her life
  • Changing the way you think about yourself
  • Schedule rather than make to-do lists
  • Make sure you and your partner are a good team
  • Do home admin on Sundays (or whatever day – just do it at the same time each week)
  • Plan for your life, not other people’s
  • Exercise on Sundays
  • Give your week a theme or focus
  • Use Sunday to plan your week
