How To Plan a Better Day (Even If You Stink at Planning)
Planning is such an individual thing and one of my dorkiest, Type A things to do is pick people’s brains about how they plan.
Do you mind if I page through your planner? How does your bullet journal work? How long have you been planning?

For me, I like to homeschool plan in chunks of time. One big planning session in the summer, then smaller bits of time at the beginning of each month. These plans aren’t super detailed, but just enough direction so that I know what direction to go each day. Planning like this helps me to get more done in our homeschool because I’m not constantly searching for books or ideas. I just do that all at one time and work off that plan.
