Medication Tracker

My main reason for keeping a planner is to keep track of all of my doctor information and appointments. However, it is also a very convenient way to keep track of all the medications I am taking: for my reference, in case of emergency, or if I'm seeing a new doctor.

To that end, I created this template. It's optimized for the 6-ring planners that are 4.25"x6.75". I left out markings for holes as I imagine you can use a sheet from your planner already to mark them and it should make it easier to scale it for other planners.

This was created using Scribus. I certainly welcome any suggestions for improvement: this WAS my first attempt, ever, at anything like this.

Paper size:

Thumbnail: 
MedTrackSample.JPG
Usage advice: 

The name of the medication (I suggest using the generic name, if you know it) should go above the purple box. The 'R' stands for 'Refills' (as an aside: pencil might be best!). The other fields should be self-explanatory.

Mood Diary - pocket mod and Cognitive Restructuring problem solving worksheet

This is the Daily Mood Journaling / Tracking Page by Matdredalia worked into a pocketmod format. I often leave my planner on my desk, but never my wallet. Since this isn't something I'd want anybody looking at, I prefer to keep it in my wallet. (I never fill out the personal information pages of the planners either. Oh, and the reason I'm so touchy about personal info -- I work in a jail).

Thanks for the original template Matdredalia, and for permission to pocketmod it!

I'm also adding another pocketmod which incorporates some of the Mood Diary. It also has a worksheet for a "Problem Solving Technique". This is based somewhat on David Burns books and the cognitive restructuring schools of thought. Cognitive theory holds that at least some of the time when we face a psychological problem, it is at least partially caused by our own distorted thought patterns. So, whenever you notice yourself having thoughts of suicide, feeling a need to cut, feeling the need to overeat, feeling the need to not eat or purge, or ...
a technique to handle it is to write down the emotion, what triggered it, and then rephrase your self talk to overcome the distorted thinking.

I find to do this, I really need to have this sheet with me all the time -- hence the pocketmod. I also like tracking the factors from the mood diary as well. The two blank rows at the bottom can be used for tracking other factors that may be relevant for you.

Lastly, one page of the mod is for keeping track of doctor's appointments.

Weekly Receipts Envelope (#10)

This template prints onto a 4 1/8" x 9 1/2" envelope (aka #10 size or "business" envelope). Top line allows entering of month/year/week.

6 x 35 table with columns for date, details, bank, debit or credit card, amount, and expense type.

Paper size: 
Other
Usage advice: 

Ideal for heavy plastic users who generate piles of receipts and dream about reconciling their bank statements and tracking their expenses.

Test print onto a piece of paper. You may need to set print setup to "landscape" for your envelope. Feed them in one at a time to avoid off-center printing. Text and margins reconfigurable with OpenOffice Writer.

I divide each month into 4-5 weeks and print one envelope per week.

For week 1, I put 2/1 in the top row and 2/7 in the bottom row. Then for week 2, 2/8 in the top row and 2/15 in the bottom row, and so on.

I put a "D" if a debit card, "C" if a credit card, "$" if I used cash.

For cash back during POS transactions, I use two lines for my entry, with the second line saying "W/D" in the "Details" column and "$" in the "Type" column.

For gas purchases, I enter in the Details column the vendor, price/gal and # gals.

If I need a receipt for tax, warranty or reimbursement purposes I put a "T" "W" or "R" on the left edge of a given row. I use different colored highlighers and zigzag over the corresponding receipts. You can try colored stickers.

You can always print on both sides for 70 rows if you love to itemize expense categories.

I designed this template with an emphasis on creating an envelope you could carry with you to collect receipts.

I use personal finance software so I do not worry if I have a receipt covering multiple types of expenses, I just write "MIXED." I categorize when reconciling paper to digital. If you use paper I suggest you write "SNEAKERS" instead of "CLOTHING" at this stage. I find it's easier for me to classify from specifics than to have to remember specifics from a category.

The #10 envelope is big enough to hold the stupidly long receipts you get if you fold them in half.

Planning Year per Legal (fold-out Classic) - 2008 & 2009

This provides all of 2008 on one side and 2009 on the other of a landscaped piece of Legal. Once printed, it can be folded into thirds to fit into a Classic-sized planner.

As I was exploring the site and getting things together, I found the Year a page (A4) for 2006 and 2007 and thought it'd be nice to have an updated 2008/2009.

It's listed as "Other" paper size since it uses a full piece of Legal and folds to fit into Classic.

Paper size: 
Other
Thumbnail: 
2008 & 2009 Year.png
Usage advice: 

Use this to map your year. Track vacation time. Plan timelines for longer projects.

I've included the .odg and .pdf versions. Suggested fold lines are included on the image, but if your printer can't print within 1/4" of the edge of the page, they won't print out. Still, you'll be able to see them in the .pdf viewer and can adjust as per your tastes. (I tried to fold mine along border between date boxes.)

*Update* I've added a new file. It's Excel 97 format, since it was the spreadsheet I had at hand when I needed to create an updated version. It may work in Open Office, but I haven't tested it. To use/update dates: Add the beginning year in cell C1 -- all other cells will update based on that entry. If you change anything else, you'll have to fix the formulae.

Day Diary Template 2008 v1

Updated version on my original Day Diary Templates.
Not likely to be the last as I search for the 'perfect' solution.

Appointment Page on left hand side
Notes/Tasks Page on right hand side
Monthly Index Page added for special dates & a Notes page

It's not perfect but I hope they are of value to someone.

PDF Paper size = A4, page design is for Covey Compact

Paper size: 
Other
Usage advice: 

Printing : Print duplex double-sided printing.

Punch boarders: Center of the page where the page will be trimmed.

Trimming: Cut down center of A4, then trim off Note sections. Cut note sections in half again. These will take a set of three holes punched. (or turn vertical to take 6 holes, but lines will also be vertical)

Page Date Order: Cut page down center then flip LHS onto RHS to get the date order.

NB: I used the spare paper down the bottom of the page templates to create small note pages. I found that I was writing small info notes for other people and having to tear up a large note page or giving them a whole note page, so the little note pages were made.
I also found i wasn't finishing some of my tasks so I now use the Floating Actions page and move it across the dates as I need it.
