Its either really hard to know where to start planning or so easy to start, then get quickly discouraged, though, isn’t it? To get over this start big! Look at the big picture, the one that affects the whole family. The trick is looking at it in a way that doesn’t really seem so big, so ignore all the details right now.

I’ve been following Leigh Ann at Intentional by Grace for a while and have stumbled upon her Planning 101 series several times. This year, however, I’m actually following the steps she shares to plan for the overall year for my family.

Leigh Ann walks you through making sure everything for your family is on your calendar for the year so you don’t forget the little things!


Go ahead and check out Leigh Ann’s post, and make sure you have your calendar ready!

(I was going to make my own to add to this post, but came across these!) If you are a blogger and looking for a life and blogging planner, check out Wonderlass!

Come back on Friday to check out the way I’m planning to accomplish my goals and mini-goals!
