I’m a firm believer in sinking funds. In fact, I have a number of successful sinking funds this year and I hope to carry on with the system for the year 2018.
These are the tracker sheets that I made myself so that I can organize all my sinking funds efficiently. I’ve been using these since the beginning of this year but not in my planner. Next year however, I’ll have them included in the financial section in my planner.
They are for the personal size planners and I am very happy to offer them for free. Just leave a comment under this post if you are interested in getting these inserts so that I can provide them in the next post or something.
Also, I’d like to know how do you manage your sinking funds because my system is pretty much these inserts and that’s it, lol.
I only started pre-planning this year actually and I wonder why I didn’t do it sooner. Pre-planning saves my messy a** big time and my planner looks neat now that I almost don’t have to erase any mistakes or stick too many sticky notes to mark events and stuff.
I use this printable weekly sheets from The Planner Spot to pre-plan my week.
The sheet is blank so it’s easy to set it according to your personal preference. For me, I dedicated those four sections to DUE, WORK, PERSONAL and FINANCE.
I can move my events all I want because this sheet is not a permanent insert in my planner.
As soon as I done transferring all the events into my actual weekly inserts, I change the pre-planning sheet to a new one.
Another way I pre-plan is using this convenient weekly desk planner I got from Typo. I mainly use this to pre-plan my big events or projects because it’s huge and has plenty of space to write on.
By the way, this is my current planner setup. I’m loving it so far.
