Planner Organization

I used Post-it® Notes to organize tasks into separate “to buy, to do, to bring, and food” checklists, all on one sheet of paper, for my daughters graduation party. The Post-it® Notes give me more surface area & allow me to write things that I would have otherwise needed multiple sheets of paper for. I want to keep everything on one sheet so it’s visible at once. It’s organized and I thrive on that. You can also color code different tasks using Post-it® Notes. The sky is the limit.

    Love this idea, I have always used Post-its but the just ended up everywhere. My last couple of attempt at organizing events/trips consisted up typing the To Do, Shopping list and menu all on one sheet which never seemed to work very well. I am excited to try this new idea. Thank you and God Bless.
