Things to Track in your Planner

Looking for things to track in your planner? You’ve come to the right place. It seems like a few times I week, I see people in planner groups asking others what to track in their planner.

Often times they’re stay-at-home Moms who feel they don’t have much to include (I get you, I am you). Or, they just want to have a cute chunky planner with lots of pages to keep them busy decorating and filling. Whatever the reason, they all have one thing in common: they want more things to “plan about.”

If you’re here, it’s because you, too, are looking for a list of things to include in your planner. And that’s exactly what you’re going to get.

Below, you’ll get a list of over 175 ideas PLUS, anytime I have a freebie to match, I’ll include a link to it as well. All of my freebies will be listed next to the item in pink. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to get a printable list for things to include in your planner.
