But my weekly planner spread might have too much weekend on it.
|Too Much Weekend Space on a Weekly Planner Spread|
This picture shows just how much of the spread is dedicated to weekends. In sum, about half on one page - roughly 25% - of the weekly two-page spread is saved for weekend tasks, even though most weekends are spent at events (like dinners or parties) or doing routine chores (listed elsewhere).
I've been tracking my writing in my planner over the last few months, and while Monday through Friday is usually close to full, with a daily docket often used because I have so many things going on, weekends generally are light (other than, of course, watching Downton Abbey). Weekends are, in fact, barely filled at all.
I'm thinking of converting the inside grey box of Saturday and Sunday to a weekly lunch and dinner menu planning space. I'm not sure that my brain can deal with that (or relearn how to use the space, frankly), but I hate the menu at the very top (too horizontal), need the menu on the weekly spread, and use all of my notes space some weeks.

What do you think about this idea? Anyone have other ways that they use extra weekend space?
