Lately, I’ve been relying on the weekly to-do list printables to help me stay sane as I navigate my way through the process of setting up a new planning system. Between the growing craziness of home, family, and work life areas, I’m struggling to stay on top of everything. The weekly to-do lists have been a great resource to have on hand, some weeks acting as my weekly planner and others just to use in tandem with my planner as I get the new system up and running one step at a time. Whether you’re changing everything around like I am, or are just looking for something to help you stay on track, these printables are a great way to keep track of all you need to do on those busier weeks. Which is great for peace of mind, knowing everything is there and you don’t have to worry about forgetting something.
The weekly to-do list printables first appeared as part of the 31 Days 31 Printables series. I use one of these each week and I’ve found that a weekly to-do list has become an integral part of my planning process. You can use these in place of a weekly planner or you can use them in conjunction with a planner. I know I found these super helpful when I was using a daily planner because it gave me a place to keep track of all those weekly to-do items.
Weekly To-Do List Printables
Just like with the daily to-do list planners, I updated the weeklies to reflect the new colours and fonts. I also updated the top areas to include a weekly focus section, which I’m finding has been really helpful for me when it comes to making plans for the week. If my focus is family fun time, I’ll be more inclined to put off non-essential, non-family activities until another week, because I know I want to focus on family stuff that week.
I’m not going to explain the printable again since it really is exactly the same as the daily ones with the exception of the titles Weekly Focus and Worried for Another Week. If you’d like to see a full explanation of all the different sections hop on over to the post, Stay on Track in 2016 With These Daily To-Do List Planner Printables, and you’ll find the descriptions under the photo of the blush coloured daily to-do list.
I use weekly to-do list printables to help keep me on track when I plan out my week. I usually start filling out a new one on Friday evenings. By the end of the day Friday I have a good idea of what we’re going on the weekend, and whether or not I’ll be able to finish everything left on my list. I move over what needs to be moved over, and over the course of the weekend, I’ll add in what I know needs to get done the following week. On Monday morning, I pick my focus for the week and decide what things are going on my list of Top Three.
If I know that I have stuff coming up next week, I’ll grab a blank one and start filling it out as needed. The nice thing about using this outside of my normal planner is that once I’ve transferred everything to the appropriate place I can hang it on the fridge so it acts as a reminder for me.

You knew these were coming right? I’ll give you a brief summary here. Each one features two weeks per page and print on regular letter size paper, in a landscape orientation. After printing just cut in half down the middle and away you go.

I hope you enjoy the new weekly to-do list planner printables and that you find them a useful tool for staying sane during those busy weeks.
With spring break right around the corner, I have a feeling these might come in very handy for us. I’m thinking that I might print one per person per week, during the school break and use just the left side to assign chores and reminders about homework stuff like reading. We’ll see, though, that might be a little overkill.
