Recently I started doing a simple trick to easily see the first of each month in my weekly planner: Highlighter!
I have several things that must be done at the end of each month and the beginning of each month like paying bills, submitting invoices, etc. Sometimes the first of the month sneaks up on me in my weekly planner. This simple trick makes the first of the month more visible on the current week and when I’m flipping ahead in my planner.
Now it’s easy to see when each month begins so those end- and beginning-of-month tasks don’t creep up on me anymore.
What types of little tricks do you use in your planner?
