After trying a few other layouts, I dig the amount of space I have for daily to-do lists (I can't, unreasonably, put 20 items on one day, even though I have tried and felt bad about it), plus having the shopping list, meal plan, housekeeping, goals, and happy thoughts all on one spread is MY JAM.
Calendar Journal. Make journal keeping super easy by using a calendar to write down one or two sentences a day. Keep track of all the important things, cute kid quotes, special occasions and events and the day-to-day life events too. Margins make great note areas for days you want more details. Great idea!
