Frazzled No More

I've been feeling frazzled lately...scattered and stressed. My life used to be pretty slow and boring, but this is the season of homeschool co-op and Mom's Group, which both meet weekly. Then there's our regular homeschool day on top of that. I'm also scheduled to teach some classes at The Neighborhood Knit Shop. It's still not a terribly fast-paced life compared to some of you, I'm sure - but lately it has started to feel hectic.

Yesterday, though, I realized one reason why. I forgot to put the October daily pages in my beloved Franklin Covey planner.

Instead, I have been operating off the October monthly pages, which is fine for scheduled events - but I use the daily pages for my to-do list each day and without those pages in my planner, I have been trying to remember everything! Sadly, my memory ain't what she used to be.

So yesterday I took action and put the remaining daily pages in the October section of my planner, as well as all of the November pages. It was such a relief to be able to make my to-do list and check things off! Now I feel like I'm on track again.

I'm curious, though...what helps you stay on track with your schedule? Planner? Online calendar? Post-it notes?
