The Month Ahead: October 2013

As each good planner has a place for a monthly calendar, weekly, and often daily planning pages, ListPlanIt has the pages you need to create your own planner.  All you need is a binder (I love Mead’s Notebinder for its flexibility and Staples arc system for its ease of customization), a hole punch, and pages from‘s Time Management section.  You can create and customize your own planner for your own uses.  The Month Ahead offers holidays*, special events*, and reminders to help you get and stay ahead of your business, home, and/or family life.

* holidays and special events are mainly those of the U.S.  If you are from a different part of the world, feel free to note your holiday or special event below in the comments.
