Working on my organization skills

How do you plan for the upcoming week? Do you have a written list of things to do or an app on the phone that holds your list? I once heard that women always make longer lists than men. They said women will fill the space but men keep it simple. I don’t know how I feel about that.
I need a plan, or a road map for my week. Without it I feel like I’m forgetting something. I’m guessing that the older I get, the worse it’ll be. Feeling rushed and unorganized on Monday can lead to a terrible Tuesday for me.
Knowing what I need to wear all week, and having those clothes hanging together is one way I like to prepare for the week. I had to make a habit out of duplicating my work calendar on my phone. That was hard for me but it’s a lifesaver on Sunday night when I’m planning my wardrobe.
I plan my lunches for the week as well. I know what I’m going to eat all week when I go shopping. I count out everything to make sure I have what I need. My lunch items are placed in another area of the refrigerator and the pantry. I have my “points” written on everything that isn’t already counted out and prepacked.
Now this doesn’t happen every single week. I need to develop better habits. Maybe I should revisit my Flylady notes and see if I can get my good habits back on track.
It seems that I can’t get my home organized until I organize ME. When I have my ducks in a row I think I have more motivation for the house. We’ll see. The next 2 weeks I’m going to test that theory. Now, where did I put my spiral notebook?
