7 things to do on Sundays for the best week ever (+ weekly list printables)
Here are the 7 things to do on Sundays for the best week ever so that you can be more productive and organized.
1. Check the weather for the week
Weather is the one thing we can’t do anything about so check the forecast for the week so you’ll know if there’s going to be some surprises that might rock your schedules.
Also when you plan your clothes for the week, you’ll know which kind you’ll be needing. And that takes us to the next thing on the 7 things to do on Sundays for the best week ever.
2. Check that you have enough clean clothes for the week
After checking the weather you’ll know what kind of clothes you’ll be needing the next week. Check that you have enough clean clothes for the week and if not, this is the perfect time to do the laundry.
If you want to be even more productive, then organize your closet. I can’t think of anything nicer than seeing an organized closet on Monday mornings.
When you organize your closet make sure you won’t start decluttering, because you’ll get distracted and there are still other things to do to make the week to come the best week ever.

3. Clean out your purse and bag
Third thing of the 7 things to do on Sundays is to clean out your purse and bag.
- Empty both your purse and bag.
- Check that there’s no stains and clean both if needed.
- Throw away all the trash and receipts you don’t need to archive, and put the loose change where you keep them.
- Take the un-needed items that you had in your bag – but don’t want to carry them around the following week – to their right place
- Put the things you do want to have in your purse and bag back in them.
Some people do this purse and bag cleaning and organizing every day, and I can’t tell you how much I admire them and would like to one day be one of them, but if you’re anything like me, then this kind of weekly cleaning is already a good start.
4. Go through you calendar and create a to do list
Now that you’re all set with the clothes and your purse and bag it’s time to do the next things of the 7 things to do on Sundays -list.
Now go through you calendar and check what kind of schedules you have for the week to come.
And more importantly if you have some appointmens, meetings or other events coming up that might affect your normal weekly routine.
Add tasks on your to do -list and schedule those tasks.
I think Peter Turla has said it the best: “A plan is what, a schedule is when. It takes both a plan and a schedule to get things done.”.
Check that you have scheduled enough time to do everything but also to have enough time to rest and relax. If the week feels like it’s too packed try to rearrange some appointmens or to postpone some tasks.
This is also the perfect time to plan the dinners for the week and check your budget.

5. Clear out your email
When you plan your week it’s also good to clear out your inbox.
- Check if there are some emails that need to be answered, or schedule answering to them for the next week.
- Purge the emails you don’t need to read and trash or achieve the ones that you already did read.
- Try to achieve inbox zero, but if you have hundreds or even thousands of emails, then leave the decluttering for another day.

6. Choose 3 goals
Now that you’re all organized for the best week ever let’s make it even better.
Choose three goals you want to achieve during the week.
They can be anything. Like cleaning the garage, organizing the best birthday party for your son or daughter, finishing a part of a project, learning something new, finishing the book you started…
And when you’ve chosen the three goals you want to achieve then choose the one most important to you and prioritize that one.
Long-term goals are important, but even more important are the mini-goals – the short-term goals. They make you feel that you actually accomplished something bigger and they guide your daily tasks and weekly priorities.
So what’s your one mini-goal you want to achieve the next week? And hey, there’s one more thing you need to do! And it’s maybe the most important one.
7. Take some time for yourself
The last thing of the 7 things to do on Sundays for the best week ever is maybe the most important. Actually let me refrase that. It IS the most important, because you are important.
The last but not least thing to do is to take some time for yourself.
Do whatever makes you happy. Take a bath. Read a fun book. Watch your favorite tv-show. Or do nothing. (I love doing nothing!). But take some time for yourself.
You are always doing so many things to others. So remember to do things for yourself too. Take some me-time and charge up your energy tanks so that you can continue doing all those things on your plate.
If you did all the steps you’re all set for the best week ever!
