Getting More Done with the Anchored Press Daily Planner #AnchoredinGod

June 19

I find more success with lists. I keep a planner, filling it with appointments and everything I need to do. I have a bad habit of becoming idle if I don’t have something written down. It’s less decision making when I have events, daily routines, and individual tasks pre-scheduled.

The Anchored Press Daily Planner Review #anchoredinGod

Yes, I have to allow for leniency and interruptions, says the mom of a 3 year old who needs mommy’s attention right now. Don’t forget the teenager who forgot to tell you about a school play or the hubby who likes to add to your list of things to do. I don’t mind any of these interruptions at all. I just like to be as prepared as I can be so that when these interruptions come into play, I can easily look at what else is going on and make a few adjustments. It’s less brain work that way! LOL!

Disclosure: I received the Anchored Press 2016 planner in exchange for my honest review. I do recommend it. It’s perfect for the person who likes to write out each day’s plan. I, myself, have always worked with a weekly planner. That way I can see a full week at a time and bump something over to the next day, if I need to, without too much hassle. While giving this daily planner a spin, I see how much more productive my days have been.


How I use the Anchored Press Daily Planner

I use the daily planner to plan and complete my day. It helps me see the day in full, having room to add in appointments; daily, weekly tasks and one-time tasks; as well as reminders to do my daily routines. Plus, there’s a reminder to read God’s word. I usually complete the following steps the night before.


Step 1: List my family events and appointments by the hour.


Step 2: Fill in other time specific or weekly tasks.

This could include daily lunch at 11:00 a.m., or weekly tasks such as meal planning.

Steps 1 & 2


Step 3: Add the “First Four” tasks.

I use this section to list the tasks I need to get done that day, but not at any specific time. This area would also be great for creating habits for those goals you want to meet.

Step 4: Add in my routines.

While I don’t list every single task to be done, I just write in “Morning Routine” or “Bedtime Routine” in the time frame that I expect to do it. I do this after filling in the time specific appointments and tasks, so that nothing gets overlooked because I was in the middle of my routines. I keep these routines on 4×6 index cards to refer to each day.

Step 5: Focus on Scripture.

I love that this planner has Scripture and a mini-devotional in it each day. It’s a perfect amount to get a busy momma’s focus on God as she begins her day. In the writing section provided, I have been writing out the verse in KJV, then listing out my prayer list for that day.

Step 5

That’s how I have been using the Anchored Press Daily Planner. You can purchase the 2016 planner at 40% off. You still have half the year to enjoy it and test it out before the new year comes.
