Today on the blog I’m sharing with you a planning method I learned through the homeschooling world that applies to anyone. Anything. Any schedule. Any kind of life.

So if you’re feeling overwhelmed. If you’re juggling all the things. If you constantly feel behind. Or if you just want to reduce the daily load, this method is for you!

Introducing the loop plan

Take a circle. Inside the circle are various pieces of pie or tasks within a schedule. Essentially you have a set of tasks within a loop and loop through the tasks.

How the loop plan works

Start with one, go through the next task. Keep going and then repeat. That’s the simple explanation. In practice, you start and stop as needed. Tweaking it based on your day. Stop and start. Pick up when you need to. Stressful day? Don’t do a task. Lots of extra time? Do more! It’s completely flexible and adaptable.

Ideas of where to add loop planning

  • Errand running
  • Housework
  • Homeschooling
  • Work tasks that don’t need to be done daily


PS if you’d like to get started on daily planning or step up your planning game, I created a free printable daily planner sheet for you that you can use. You can find it here. You can also find all of my printable planners in my shop HERE.A picture of my daily planner sheet.

Hi, I’m Kelly! I’m a mother of four children - three boys, one toddler girl - and our family lives on the beautiful east coast of Canada. I’m a past elementary teacher, turned stay at home, work at home mom eight years ago after I had my second child. I’ve found that the busier I’ve become and as my children age, that it’s become even more important to figure out what is most important to me and us as a family. Living a simpler lifestyle has helped us in so many ways in our home life - from better routines to faster tidying up times. It has been through my children that I have been inspired to learn how to effectively manage my time and to simplify in all areas of my home and life. I enjoy helping busy moms simplify home life by teaching flexible planning methods and skills. Enjoyed this blog and think it would be helpful to others? I'd love if you shared it. Thank you!
