TASK TRACKER

BULLET JOURNAL SETUP

It always seems like there is so much cleaning to get through.  With Pete and I both working out of the house (and him having clients here) makes it even harder to stay on top of.  This handy daily task tracker helps me keep the house looking presentable.

HOW I DID IT

STEP 1

SKETCH

Since this is the same template every month it’s just finding the time to complete all the lines of dots.  

I try to make it a meditative exercise but it can feel like a pain sometimes.  You can always make a template and copy it onto sticky paper as a shortcut.  You can pick it up almost anywhere in store or if you’re like me you assign the task to Amazon.

STEP 2

FILL IN

This changes from month to month so I take a few minutes, usually in pencil, to think about all of the things I would like to track for the month.  

Plus I pull up my monthly and quarterly cleaning check lists to make sure I have them included on the list. 

I may end up adding these at a later date but there are plenty of great places to find examples.  I’ve included a few below.  I think the most important part is having the daily reminder with the task tracker. 

For me Martha Stewart is where it all started.  I still have 1 year of her magazine for the calendars.  I loved when they used to include her monthly schedule in the magazine. 

The Tao of Martha: My Year of LIVING; Or, Why I’m Never Getting All That Glitter Off of the Dog

A SIDE NOTE: If you are a reader like me I have a funny book that focuses on Martha and trying to live like her.  If you haven’t heard of Jen Lancaster you should check her out.  She’s one of my favorite authors.  So funny & So real.
