This is where we’re going to keep our calendar of yearly events. First, put your January – December dividers into your journal. Then, at the end of each month or on the first day of the month, I want you to think about the birthdays, anniversaries, and other celebrations that you may need to send greeting cards and/or gifts for during the next few weeks. Write them down on the page for each month. Only do this one month at a time! There is no need to do it all at once. Put on your errand/grocery list the cards and gifts you need to purchase for this month. Don’t forget stamps!
As you go through your dividers, schedule seasonal jobs that you need to do for each month. You can also write in the top corner in pencil FlyLady’s habit of the month to help remind you of the habit you’re trying to work on.
When you start to do this, you will be sprouting your wings to FLY! You see we all have tons of guilt for forgetting someone’s birthday or a friend’s anniversary. Relieve you from this guilt by planning in advance!
Now that you’ve created your calendar section, you’re ready for step fifteen!
