Errands in my Passion Planner

My favourite section of my to-do lists in my Passion Planner is the Errands.

I use this section as instructed, to get out of the house and do little tasks that make a difference.

Here are some actual examples from the Errands section of my Planner this year. You can also request full example pages from my planner monthly by downloading my free ebook, A Spell for Feeling Well.

Errands in my Passion Planner

Personal Errands

Personal Errands include shopping for specific things:

  • Buy flowers
  • Get candles at IKEA
  • Buy shoe inserts
  • Stock up on Toothy Tabs at Lush
  • Buy washing up gloves at Lakeland [the moisturising ones are my favourite!]

Or other specific tasks outside the house:

  • Book theatre tickets
  • Book cinema tickets
  • Return Anthropologie purchases
  • Take out recycling
  • Sell books at Grassmarket
  • Pick up from the tailor
  • Take shoes to the cobbler
  • Deposit cheque
  • Take iPod to Apple Store
  • Pick up a book at Golden Hare that I requested online

Or non-specific tasks outside the house:

  • Consider upcoming theatre shows
  • Look for a new food processor [We got a Ninja one from Lakeland and are obsessed!]
  • Look for athletic top

Or quick little tasks to tack on the end of my day at home:

  • Send email invites to little weekly home party
  • Browse Izzy Lane’s new collection online [If you care to join me, use discount code XAG2 at checkout!]
  • Book a massage
  • Make a restaurant reservation
  • Replace the ribbon on my planner
  • Request more GiffGaff SIM cards [I get a referral bonus, so I keep a few extras at home just in case. Let me know if you want one!]
