FREEBIE: March 2017 Calendar + Declutter Your Life!

Happy March!  Download this FREE printable calendar page [ Letter Size + A5 Size ], start planning your month and read on for this month's theme!
This month's theme is Decluttering Your Life!  Every spring I like to do some deep cleaning and reorganizing, but this year I've decided to dedicate the entire month of March to decluttering my home, computer, and life in general before I even think about cleaning!

It's amazing how much stuff we can accumulate and how much junk we hold onto!  I found some lists of Things to Throw Away on Pinterest and I realized things have gotten out of control again.

Here are some ideas of the different areas I plan to work on decluttering this month--

1. Straight up junk.  

Some of the stuff cluttering my home is going to be very easy to get rid of.  It's stuff I don't need and can easily throw away or recycle.  This is where I'm going to start.

Old magazines, expired makeup and products, random hair ties that are stretched out, old receipts that I don't need... all easy to get rid of!  Keep it simple and start with the easiest stuff first.

2. Things I can donate.

This category is a little more tricky.  These items aren't junk, but you don't need them.  It can be hard to part with these items and you may move slower during this process.  

Last year I donated most of my clothing so I don't need to go through that again.  I do need to go through all of my kids' clothing, baby gear and toys.  Here's the donation list I used!

Donating takes time, because you need to set the items aside, sort, fold, make a list (for tax purposes) and either drop the items off or schedule a pickup date.  You can also sell these items online, at a resale shop or have a garage sale.  This will likely take the most time so schedule accordingly.

3. Computer files and photos.

This can take some time if you have a lot of files, but it's nice to clear out all of the stuff you don't need, free up space on your hard drive and reorganize your desktop.

You can search and sort your files by file size and eliminate the largest junk files first or you can just go through each folder and choose files randomly.

You can use this FREE Calendar to schedule your month and your decluttering projects!  March is the beginning of Spring Cleaning so get a jump on things by clearing out unnecessary items first.  Next month we'll move on to cleaning.

What are your decluttering or cleaning plans for March?  Are there home projects you always schedule for March?

FREEBIE: February 2017 Calendar + Self Care Tips!

Happy February!  Download this FREE printable calendar page, start planning your month [ Letter Size + A5 Size ] and keep reading for this month's theme!
 I think I'm going to make this month's theme all about remembering to love myself and practicing more self care on a daily basis.  It's so easy to forget to take care of yourself when you're busy planning, goal setting and being productive!

Don't Forget to LOVE Yourself!

1. Make it a goal to set time aside each day to do something you enjoy or that makes you feel good.  

Remember, you can do more than one thing!  Reading, meditating, taking baths, exercise or stretching, or maybe spending time on Pinterest.  Whatever floats your boat or brightens your day.

2. Take care of your appearance.

I'm all for the no makeup, cozy look, but things can get out of control.  If you're someone who is forced to leave the house most days for work, school or other responsibilities then you likely don't have much choice in the matter.  Still, it's good to establish routines to help you keep on top of things.

Schedule it if you have to!  For example, I think I need to find a shaving sticker for my planner and schedule shaving days, because it is so easy to skip it during the winter.  Like I said, things get out of control...

3. You will be able to take better care of others (kids, significant other, fur babies, students...) if you are healthy and happy.  

It may be hard to take that time for yourself, but, in the end, you'll be a better you.  A better you can do a lot more than a tired, crabby you.  Tired, crabby me wants to have a pizza pity party and watch movies all day in my fuzzy socks.
You can use this FREE Calendar to schedule in some "ME TIME" this month!  This is a great time to remind yourself of any goals you made for the year and make sure you're sticking to them.  

Didn't make any?  It's not to late to set some for the rest of the year!

Taking care of yourself and improving your mood will help you be more productive and accomplish all the goals you have for yourself!

Let me know if you enjoy Freebies like these and if you'd like to see another calendar next month!  Do you like the single page format or would you prefer a 2-page spread?

FREE 2017 Year On One Page Calendar + Goal Setting

Happy 2017!  The new year is a great time to think ahead and plan for the months ahead.  Whether it's business goals, fitness goals, home improvement projects- it's better to get a jump start and be ahead of the game!

It's so easy to get behind and put things off, but I really want to make 2017 a year of productivity and success in all areas of my life.  Let's make 2017 a great year by using this month to plan, set goals and get things done!

Quick Tips: Preparing yourself for a new year.

1.  Plan early. 

Why put it off?  When you plan on the fly or last minute it's usually a mess and you're not as likely to stick with a sloppy plan.  You didn't put a lot of thought or time into it.  You didn't sit down and really visualize yourself achieving these goals.

Make planning and goal setting a priority.  Go ahead and schedule planning sessions with yourself!

2.  Treat your goals as if they're definite plans rather than a wish list.

You deserve to achieve your goals!  If you don't believe you can achieve your goals then you won't.  Have faith that you can make it happen!

Create a solid plan ahead of time that's well thought out and give it 100%.

3.  Prepare for setbacks.

They're definitely going to happen!  Plan for bumps in the road and don't get discouraged.

Planning in advance can allow you a little extra time to make adjustments.
