I find it a lot easier to stay on track with daily records when I do a little journaling, I guess it helps to satisfy my creative side and make the task seem less mundane. Since I don't want to clutter up the page with random thoughts, I journal a few words about the weather every day and I write a short note about chores in the weekly section of the page. I imagine I might get more detailed when gardening season hits. Every credit item goes on the left side of each day and every debit goes on the right. Boy, is that gonna be handy next fall when I'm wondering how much hay we need!
On the big monthly page, I have a place for things that might need to be found more quickly. So far it's been good for breeding and due dates, butcher scheduling, and medical records. When summer gets here I will probably add planting dates and seed info to this page. I think I will keep a running tally of what we get from the garden in that note column on the right.
