Chaos Oasis revised

This is a revision to Chaos Oasis with corrected formulas and a slight modification to make the weekly pages more useful to my life in the past year. This version is once again a letter sized, integrated, adaptable Life Managment Center. Rather than hit every hour of each day, Oasis gives you space to plan the things that are important to you. Life is a hectic mix of home, work, family, social obligations, and creative endevors--get Oasis and come in out of the storm.

The next version of Oasis will be classic sized for portability as I am returning to the workforce.

Usage advice: 

As per the original:
Leave conformity behind; decide what you need to track and plan. Suddenly time conforms to your schedule-- that is Oasis.

*Oasis is a perpetual calendar. Enter the starting year, day, and weekly planner start day on the main page. You can start the yearly, monthly, and weekly pages on any day of the week you choose. Traditional Sunday? Go-getter Monday? Wacky Wednesday? Oasis will automatically format the calendars for dates and day titles.

*I punch holes on both the left and right sides of the Monthly and Weekly Pages after printing them front to back. Each week or Month, I insert the Monthly page on the left side of the binder and the weekly page on the right. When the week changes, I just move/flip the pages so that the month is still on the left and the week is still on the right. No more transferring, no more writing on an uncomfortable side of the page. Left handed? Reverse and put the month on the right.

* I find it easiest to keep major appointments on the monthly page.

*The good behavior chart is gridded for small round stickers (get a book with 1000's at any dollar store.) Adapt the behavior for your child's problem areas. And remember to accentuate the positive! No Don'ts allowed. :)

*I've included a basic lesson planner for home school use. This is very adaptable to homework assignments, ongoing projects, daily chores, medication usage, or other tracking/planning issues.

*Household tab gives a quick integrated list of what needs to happen in each room of your house. Update it for your personal use. It also has a quick tracking reference for recurring schedules and phone numbers.

*Also included is a tab of lined note pages and a tab to track birthdays, address, and phone numbers.

This work is entirely my own. It is my baby and was very labor intensive; please do not sell it in any capacity. You may alter it for your personal use and you may freely redistribute it as long as you give credit.

Classic Weekly Calendar

This spreadsheet contains several tabs, the important one being the weekly calendar. It is a two page per week calendar, with room for appointments, daily and weekly tasks, and a small space for notes. I left my tasks in to give an idea of usage.

Usage advice: 

There is a box on the spreadsheet for the user to type in the date of the first Monday they want a calendar for. The spreadsheet will automatically generate the last half of the previous week as well as several future weeks. After that, it's just a matter of cutting the pages and punching them. It's pretty straight-forward, I've been using it for several months now and have only punched the wrong side of the pages once ;-) Let me know if you have any questions. Enjoy.

Basic Book Review Schedule

This is a basic book review template, that I created, to keep track of books that are being reviewed, for whom they are being reviewed for, and when they are due, to help keep track of what is needed for each month.

Right now this is a very basic, to the point. It's 8.5 x 5.5 and meant to be something small and easy to use. It can be printed out for all the months, or enough to bind together to have a running record of books reviewed/when.

Usage advice: 

This can be printed double-sided to save paper, or printed individually to place in its respective month for a quick overview of that month.

This is to help keep track of books that are being reviewed and if, one finds that they have a lot of books to review for the same month, I would recommend, just simply print both sides. It's meant to just be enough of a quick glance over.

Usage advice: 

I use this as a system to balance my life as a full-time student and full-time employee, but it can be used for either situation very easily.

These templates can be used in any order. I suggest printing everything duplex to reduce weight. In my system, I include the Budget on the back of the Calendar and make sure to print a duplex of both the Bank Register and Master To-Do List.

The Weekly To-Do Page Finder is set up to be printed duplex and cut into three equal pieces.

I will also upload this package in pieces with the a source file to edit to your needs.

May through Dec 2011 Daily Calendar Pages - Letter Size

Daily calendar pages for May through December 2011 with columns for "Priority To Do" and "Want to Do," as well as an "Appointments" column with times (my day starts at 4:45am so the first time row is 4am). There is a small area to write in Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, and a "Notes for Today" area to put things like "Hubby out of town" or "Jane's Birthday."

I just put a link to my site because I was hitting the disk quota when I tried to upload the files.

Usage advice: 

I'm sorry for the wonky margins. OpenOffice Draw (and the consequent pdf that I make from it) is pushing the entire page to the right by one-quarter inch, and I cannot figure out why. So I'm just manually adjusting for it.
