10 Ways:

1. Perpetual Calendar

Obviously, you can use this planner as a regular planner and just use the monthly view as an overview of the month. The notes pages in between could be used for a variety of notes and lists, specifically weekly or daily lists.

2. Meal Planner

You can use the monthly layout to plan ahead for meals and the notes pages to make grocery lists and write down recipe ideas.

3. Faith Planner

The monthly layout would be great to track scripture readings, as well as time sensitive prayer requests. The notes pages could be uses to track sermon notes, devotional and bible reading notes, and prayers.

4. Mood Tracker/ Journal

The monthly layout could be used to color code and record moods and word of the days, while the notes pages would be great for journaling.

5. Academic Planner

While Erin Condren does offer planners specifically for school, some students might would benefit from using the monthly planner instead. This is a great option if you do not need the weekly view. The monthly layout could be used to track assignment due dates. The notes pages would be ideal for tracking grades, making study guides, project and assignment breakdowns, and taking notes.

6. Lettering/ Doodle Tracker

The monthly layout would be perfect for Cindy’s monthly doodle challenge and the notes pages would be great for the lettering challenges, as well as additional practicing.

I got this idea from Laken over at Plan With Laken.

She used this idea to track Cindy’s challenges over at Llama Letters.

7. Goal Setting Planner

The monthly layout could be used to time block the amount of time needed to be dedicated towards specific goals. The notes pages would be great for goal breakdowns and brainstorming.

Jen over at Wildflowers and Marbles has an excellent blog post talking about this idea specifically.

8. Budget Planner

The monthly layout could be used to track bills and payments. The notes pages are great for breaking down payment plans, recording payments, and tracking sinking funds.

Jen Plans has some fun ideas for using the monthly planner as a budget planner.

9. Content Planner

I have personally used the monthly planner as a content planner and love it. The monthly layout is great for tracking and planning instagram, blog, and youtube posts. The notes pages in between are good for tracking analytics, setting goals, and taking notes for future content ideas.

Julie over at Julie’s Plans has an awesome video showing how she uses this idea!

10. Reading Tracker

The monthly layout would be good for tracking and setting reading goals. The notes pages could be used for writing down quotes from books, listing future books to read, and rating books.

How I Plan Ahead

I have been planning as a hobby for over five years now. One of the most commonly asked questions I get is how I get each week’s stickers to match while still putting plans in my planner ahead of time. I joke and say that if it is not in my planner, then it is… Read More How I Plan Ahead
