Free Autumn Inspired Daily Planner - 4 Colors!

As we approach back-to-school season the jump from lazy summer schedules to school and sports and work can be stressful for many working moms. After 17 years of back-to-school (my oldest is 22!) I have finally found a groove that works for me and my kids.  Instead of trying to do it all, I have scaled back my expectations of what I can realistically accomplish in the busy first weeks of September. 

 

This includes:

- Scheduling a few days or afternoons off from my day job the week school starts. I take advantage of the quiet house and catch up on my to-do lists and do light meal prepping. I also get to be there when my boys get home and can hear about how their first day went. 

- Setting aside time to fill out back-to-school paperwork. You know, that mountain of paperwork that comes home the first week. Rather than procrastinate, I set aside an hour to go through everything. My school district recently went to online forms, which makes this process so much faster! 

- Putting the school district calendar into my work and personal calendars. I use outlook at work and an old fashion non-fancy planner from Wal-Mart for the rest of my life. I always take a few minutes to add school vacation, workshop days and early release days into my both my calendars, for the entire school year. that way I can avoid the whole "What do you mean you don't have school today?" in the middle of March. 

To help me stay on track as we segue into autumn, I use old fashion pen and paper and make to-do lists (and not-to-do lists) as well as daily and weekly planners. You can see some of favorite tools over in the Free Printable Library.
