Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Hello! Happy Monday. How was your weekend?  The sun was shining here in the bay area and then we ended the weekend with rain. While my brother in law was here visiting us,  I did some painting, worked around the house, spent time outside in my garden and got ahead of the week by ordering some stuff from Costco from Instacart. (btw-I really like ordering stuff online because I can be more intentional about what I buy. If I go to Costco in person, I will come back with so many more things that I didn’t need.  Plus, it frees up time so it’s worth it to me!  I just don’t like people picking out my produce (ever). That’s super personal to me and I can’t always trust what I’m going to get.)

This week I’m headed to Los Angeles for a quick minute! While I’m gone, I gotta get all of Cooper’s school stuff situated so my boys have a smooth week. I have a mountain of laundry to fold (hello, I procrastinated!!). The only thing that keeps me motivated to do it is having something on TV on in the background. I’ve been “watching”  Off Camera on Netflix while I work/fold laundry and it’s been really good. I highly recommend the Matt Damon interview. He’s golden.

Good luck this week! Hope you get all your Intentions for the Week crossed off your list!

  • Kristin

    Yes! The produce. I could not let anyone shop for me because of the produce. Hope you find that charger, the floor beneath your laundry, and have a great week!

  • Joy

    I don’t understand people who do Fresh Direct and the like for the produce reason! I can’t even imagine someone else picking out my produce. 🙂

  • Erin

    Just want to thank you for getting me started on the “Intentions for the Week” habit. Even if I don’t complete everything, I feel more organized knowing there’s a list that I can consult instead of having a bunch of “shoulds” swirling around in my brain. I haven’t been able to go full bullet journal yet, but this is a great start. Thank you!

    • Tracy

      you’re on the right track! just being intentional about your week makes a difference. I’m sure you’re starting to see that! xo

  • Laura

    I totally feel you on the produce front. Picking out everything is so personal. I’m using an inkwell press planner right now but have dabbled with bullet journaling off and on. Your posts are inspiring me to get back!

  • India

    You worked out four times?! That’s amazing! Way to go, Tracy!

  • Kristin

    i love instacart! i’ve actually had pretty good experiences so far w/ the produce. occasionally there’s something i wouldn’t have picked, but overall, it’s been good.
