How to Organize Your Home & Keep It Maintained


Hey you! Welcome to your DayPlannr! First, I want to thank you for supporting A Cozy Home! My hope is for us all to live a cozier, peaceful, and happy life. So, I’ve created this DayPlannr to help us live a little more organized life. 

The DayPlannr is a mixture between a digital planner and a physical planner. You’re going to be able to create to-do lists per day, create templates for your events or things that you want to do, you’re still able set reminders and recurring events, etc. So with that being said, let’s get started! 

Powered by Notion: 

The DayPlannr, and most of my digital programs, are powered by Notion is a digital notebook that you can use for just about every thing in your life. If you’re new to Notion, it may seem very confusing. But I will help you with some basic elements to help you navigate Notion. However, I do want to note, I am not a pro at Notion. It’s not my program, just a platform that I use.  If you have any questions that are Notion based, you’ll need to reach out to Notion to get those answered. If you have any questions on the DayPlannr, I will definitely be able to help you. 

Issues with the physical & traditional digital planner: 

I do have a physical planner that I never really use. I’m more used to my digital planner. However, I love that my physical planner has to-do lists, trackers, etc for me to use. My only issue with my digital planner is that it does not have these things. As of right now, I am unable to create a to-do list in my digital planner, under specific events, where  I can actually check off my tasks. I can’t create a new section that pertains to only to this event. Even with my physical planner, it has a section for 3 priority tasks, which is nice! But what if I have more than three priority tasks that day? I’m not able to expand the physical planner without writing out of the lines. So neither planner is customizable. 

Secondly, for me, my hand writing is not always extremely beautiful. This is a huge issue with my physical planner. I’m an aesthics person, and sometimes when I’m writing fast, my handwriting looks like chicken scratch. After that I just want to tear out the whole page and start again. 

Third, I write too big to fit all of my events in that small box on a physical planner’s monthly calendar, not to mention times of events. I really never understood how people do it. 

Last but not least, the physical planner is so big! I don’t want to have to carry around a huge planner around everyday to make sure that I’m on track with my tasks, or events, or that I’m able to add a new task when necessary. 

The DayPlannr’s Solution

The Dayplannr fixes all of these issues. The DayPlannr is completely customizable. You can change pretty much whatever you want, add whatever type of templates that you need on a daily, and get it just right for your personal life. 

You are typing everything, so you don’t have to worry about inconsistent hand writing and you can carry your DayPlannr on your phone with the Notion app or your desktop. Your whole planner fits on a mobile phone. With that being said, let’s get into the DayPlannr.

Setting up your DayPlannr

If you haven’t already, you’re going to create an account with Notion. Again, will be the digital notebook platform that your planner will be hosted on. So, click the link in the pdf, and go ahead and do that. 

Then you’re going to go back to the pdf, and click the link that says “Download your DayPlannr”. 

From there, all you need to do is click duplicate in the top-right corner, and choose what workbook you want your planner on. 

The Views

So now we’re in the planner. I’ve created three views for you to use. The weekly view, the monthly view, and the category view.

The weekly view allows you to see your planner on a week by week basis, so that you can focus on exactly what you need to do that week. The monthly view lets you see you planner on a month by month basis & the category view helps you to categorize your events. 

Creating an event

So let’s go ahead and create an event. There are multiple ways to create an event. 

  1. You can create an event by clicking the plus sign on the calendar day. 

  2. You can create an event by clicking the new button in the top right corner. 

  3. You can also use the easy access buttons that I put next to your calendar as well, which we’ll go over soon. 

So when you first create an event, you will see a blank page. You’ll first title your event. 

Type “Business Meeting” 

Then you can put your date, and if your event has a time, you can toggle “include time”. If you would like to put an end time, you can toggle “end date” and it will give you the option to put an end time. 

You can also set a reminder, if you choose to. You can add tags which will help you to catergorize your events. 

If you would like to customize your event, you can add an icon or a event cover for more aesthics. 

Using Templates

Not every event will need a notebook. However for meetings, events, notes can be very important. 

I’ve created a few templates for you to use on a daily. 

  1. Event Notes template

    1. The event notes template gives you a quick way to establish a notebook for business notes. There are five sections. Notes, tasks, brainstorm, reflection, and events.

    2. The notes section is where you can capture important information that comes up during your appointment. 

    3. Your tasks sections lets you to put your new tasks down that you’ve gathered from this event. 

    4. Your brainstorm section allows you to write down any ideas that pop into your head during your meeting. 

    5. Lastly, the events sections allows you to add another event to your calendar quickly as they come up during your meeting. 

  2. Birthday Template

    1. The birthday template is a simple template that helps you to write down gift ideas. You can add party ideas, if you’re planning the party, etc. 

  3. Notes & Tasks List

    1. This is a daily planning template where the night before, or the day of, whatever you prefer. You can write down your priority tasks, and any other tasks that you need to do. 

    2. You have another notes sections, and another brainstorm section for any ideas or thoughts that come to you throughout the day

    3. Lastly, you have a meal planner. The meal planners main purpose here is for you to be aware of what you’re going to eat, so that you can prepare for it the night before. If you need to lay out meat for a meal, you’re going to write that in the tasks section of the meal planner or if you have a meal where something needs to marinate, you’re aware of it. 

  4. You can also keep an empty page, and start fresh. 

Editing or Creating Templates

If you need to edit a template, if you want to take things out, or add things in, you definitely can! All you need to do is hover over the template name, and click the three dots on the right. Then you can click edit, and you will see a bar on the top screen that tells you that you’re editing the template. Then you can add or subtract anything that you want, and it will repeat everytime that you use that template. 

To create a template, all you need to do is click New template in the bottom. You’ll start from scratch, and create your own template. 

Using the “Create an Events” Buttons

I’ve created three buttons that will create an event using the templates automatically for you for quick access. You can also use your templates quickly by clicking the arrow on the new button to the right. Then you can choose your preferred template. 

Deleting Events

To delete an event, all you need to do is right click the event, and click delete. 

Recurring Events

To create a recurring event, you’ll click the arrow on the new button to the right, then you’ll hover over a template that you want to use. Click the three dots, and choose “repeat”, There you can set your settings, and it will only create that event on the time that you choose. It won’t autopopulate your calender. Which I prefer in some ways. 

How to Customize Your Page Design

To customize your page design, you need to click the three dots in the right hand corner, and you can change your font style, the width, and the font size of your page. 

So that you can create, and keep the same aesthics if you choose, I’ll show you what I use: 

  • I usually use serif font with a wide page. 

  • You can use call out blocks to highlight certain things, and you can change the icon, or the color of the block. 

  • You can highlight words. 

  • For the text, I capitalize all the letters, put the space in between each letter and three or four spaces in between each word.
