Business planning

Blog planning

Over the past few weeks I’ve really been hitting the “getting organised” button. I started in our dining room and it’s spiraled until the entire house is now fit for guests, finally (we’ve only been here 6 months).

So I started off the day by looking on the lovely pinterest for some planning printables to organise my time a little better. I’m finding I’m procrastinating a lot at the moment and not enough progress is being made. I’ve found the following and printed them out.

Stash organisation

I also created an Excel spreadsheet and printed it off to keep track of all the different yarn and notions I have purchased. This should save me time and money in the future when I’m trying to work out whether I need to buy something new. One thing I did get a little stuck with was trying to suss out what colours of yarns I currently have available. I’m going to punch some holes in some card and tie small pieces of coloured yarn to them. This should prevent the inevitable confusion that arises months after throwing away the yarn sleeve.

Time keeping

Today I’ve had a lunchbreak and an afternoon break. I’ve been fairly efficient today as well having allocated my time in the morning I knew what I was meant to be doing at any one time, I kept social media time to just in my breaks and was more production because of it. I’m amazed how many hours can be lost to facebook and pinterest.

How do you manage your time and your business?

  1. This is a great idea for organization! I have my yarn in cubes, organized by weight and color. This helps to some degree, but I love your idea of the excel spreadsheet. I’ll have to try this!
