Get organised in 2017: 8 great ways to use your diary

Great ways to use your 2017 diary

8 great ways to use your 2017 diary



Dairy Diary 20171 Write all your ‘need-to-know’ information in the Useful Numbers section.
I find it really embarrassing that I can’t remember my car registration plate, but a quick peek in my diary reveals all!

 

 

Memorable dates stickers2 Use your dates reminder stickers to note everyone’s birthdays.
You’ll never miss that important date again.

 

 

 

Dairy Diary 20173 Jot non-local contacts’ details in the Family & Friends section of your diary.
Have you ever got to the post office to post a card or parcel only to realise that you don’t have the address details to hand?

 

 

Dairy Diary 2017 recipes4 Be more inventive at mealtimes.
We all get stuck in a rut, cooking the same meals week-in-week-out. Vow to cook the Dairy Diary recipe every week and discover a whole host of new favourites.

Dairy Diary 20175 For other meals, jot ideas on the relevant space in your diary.
You can easily see what you’re planning to cook and write your shopping list accordingly.

6 This may seem obvious but write everything down, yes everything!
If it’s on paper it’s out of your head and gives you a better sense of wellbeing.

Diary Diary 2017 notes7 Keep all your jottings in one place.
Instead of scribbled lists on various different pieces of paper, write all your thoughts and ideas on the Notes pages at the back of your diary and you’ll always know where to find them.

 

 

notes-pocket8 This one may seem a little strange, but I’ll reveal it anyway!
Over the years I’ve discovered, with much trial and error, which colours suit me best (and the colour you wear can make a huge difference to how well you look), so I have a handy colour chart made from paint swatch cards hidden in the pocket of my diary for quick reference. Et voila, no more bad choices when clothes shopping!

2014 diary launched | Dairy Diary 2014 now available

2014 diary

.

It’s here! The 2014 Dairy Diary.


Officially launched today. Hurrah!!

Life working on the Dairy Diary can be a strange one – you never know what year you’re in for a start.  The 2014 Dairy Diary is brand new to everyone else, but Marion our editor, Karen our designer and I have been working on it since early in 2012! So, it’s a huge delight to be able to properly, finally, launch it.

I know I would say this, but I honestly think it’s the best yet. We have refreshed the design inside so it has a more modern, magaziney feel but it’s still uber user-friendly and Dairy Diaryesque.

And of course it’s packed full of the most delicious triple-tested recipes, many with a distinctly seasonal twist. My personal favourites include Cauliflower & Potato Curry, Crunchy Alaska Salmon Goujons and St George’s Day Pudding.

The features are simply fascinating and include food for kids, anti-ageing foods, companion planting and my personal favourite super-cute mice – a gorgeous project for crocheting the cutest little mouses.

2014 diary contents

The best bit about the Dairy Diary though; is the diary itself. Not only is there plenty of space to write each day – essential for us with busy families – it also has dainty little dates stickers for those important events, such as birthdays that we really need to remember. Try to hide them from the children though or they’ll be adorning the front of their t-shirt rather than the diary (it’s lucky a can get some spares!)

There’s also a handy pocket for stashing all those notes that get lost amongst the hairclips, odd socks and wet wipes in the bottom of your handbag (or is that just me?!)

So if you’re looking for the perfect planning tool for 2014 look no further, the Dairy Diary has it all.

It’s great value at £7.25 and ON SALE NOW.
