I used to have a Busy Mom's Book, things changed the next year, it was a waste of money. I currently have a planner with monthly schedules on tabs with about four sheets in between. On these I keep Things to Do, Books to Read, shooping lists- food and non food, gift ideas, birthday plans for the kids, with reminders to shop the month before, I keep some money info but I have Quicken on the computer, and there is an envelope at the front for all my current papers and I keep an envelope with my best coupons in there. My store has double couples, up to 5 coupons and up to $1 twice a week, abut you have to spend $25. So I presort my best coupons, combine with purchases of milk, eggs, produce, etc. This has made my life easier, not to try to sort and carry so many coupons.
One thing I have done the last several years is carry over some goals every year from my planner, for example in Jan/Feb I have sort closets, July school shopping, March sign up for camp, October wash and pack summer clothes and start a grocery bag per kid for Christmas, Dec schedule tax appt. This has helped me remember annual events, and helped me get things done. I have yet to do all the closets, though! It has helped remember to get to the dentist, get flu shots, etc. When I complete them, I highlight or circle, so I carry over to the next year.
Some of my current goals are ones for school, apply for scholarships every month, debt payoff, try to pay off even a little extra-for Feb my goal was just an extra $15, giving away some baby items every month, and re-dong my wardrobe to look better and be ready to go if I get into nursing school. I have even bought three used scrubs tops, and warm clothes for walking around a campus-doulbe duty as I am teaching at daycare now, they are used for playground duty, staying warm while standing outside in MN! They are also good teacher clothes.
That's my system so far, I will need to reread yours, esp Brandy and Amy, and see what I can incorporate in my planner.
