Having two pages on one sheet seemed to be the more frugal way to go as we would use less paper and less ink, though we did need to go out and buy a small binder to put it in. I decided on black and white for the same reason. Having a colored border did make it prettier but it does not change the functionality and it would have unnecessarily used colored ink. Now, the reason I chose the Daily Planner over the Chore Planner is that the Chore Planner has the entire week on one sheet. This would be great for someone who wants to see the entire week at once, but personally, it was too cluttered for my mind to work with.
I have been printing out a month at a time to go easy on the printer ink. I realize some people may want to print it all out at once and get it bound. As getting something bound is not that easy of a thing to do in our rural community I thought that a binder would be an acceptable way to hold my planner and it is working really well.
I love the fact that, not only is it a checklist of specific "chores" that should be completed each day, it also includes a calendar for appointments (separated in hour increments). The chores include exercise, make bed, empty trash, etc. Each day also includes different weekly items such as "'clean shelves in refrigerator" or "vacuum bedrooms". These are the things that I tend to not budget time for and then, by the time I think of them, it seems like an impossible task to complete which frustrates me because I feel I should be doing other things. Using this checklist, things don't get out of hand like they used to and I am remembering to do those daily tasks. Even hubby has been making the bed when he wakes up for work.
