Lists really keep me on my toes, without them I tend to muddle through the day getting some things accomplished (the things I like to do) and not other things (those things I really detest doing… ehem… dishes). But it can be annoying to write out a list of the same things every day (which is a lot of what happens when you are a stay at home mom).
Things that must get done every day: Quiet Time, Make bed, Get dressed (Yes, this needs to be something I check off), Get children dressed (ditto), Dishes, Laundry, Pick up
You get the picture. They are simple things that we all do and should be all be able to do without a list… but not me. I need a binder of lists, from my Daily Plan of Attack, to my Blog Ideas, to Menu Planning.
I tend to be picky when it comes to my Home Management Binder. I want it to include the thing I need, and to look pretty at the same time (I mean it needs to motivate me, right?). Well, as you can imagine, it is hard to find everything you want when your list is pretty specific. The answer… create my own of course!
So without further ado I would like to introduce you to Desiring Virtue’s first ever Home Management Printable:
The Daily Plan of Attack
This printable contains four different version, each including 4 pages. The first version is my own personal version. It has all the MUST BE DONE items that we all must do plus my own personal preferences like alternating laundry days, one big daily task (floors, bathroom, baking, etc…). You may find that this version works for you as well! Great! If not there is version number two.
Version number two offers a lot more customization. It still includes the daily chores that we all do, but then gives you lots of blank spots to add your own items. But, maybe you want lots of blank spaces, but still want the quiet times, family worship, and church items that I have in my personal plan of attack…
Then version number three is for you. It is kind of the hybrid between the first two versions.
All three feature Sunday as the beginning of the week and keep the to-dos to a minimum on the day when many of us enjoy meditating on the Lord and spending time with family. Sunday’s Plan of attack also gives you opportunity to plan for the upcoming week and set goals.
The final version is completely blank so that you can customize your Plan of Attack completely.
How do I get it?
Simply download your Plan of Attack (It’s free!) and then print* out the pages that will benefit you the most.
*Make sure that you choose which pages you want to print or you will print all four version at once… maybe a little overkill.
So, there you have it, Desiring Virtue’s Daily Plan of Attack. The first of who knows how many to come. Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions for future printables.
If you are reading this on an iPhone or iPad you will not be able to see the printables in this post (man Apple and your non-flash love). No worries, just click this link and it will take you to the Scribd website that is hosting them!
