5 Notion Page ideas to Organise Your Life (Free Template!)
March 18, 2021
HAY, how art you? I’ve been using Notion for nearly a year and since then, I’ve never looked back. *hair flips* It is hardly a surprise that almost my entire life is now organised in this very versatile app. If you are new to Notion, it is basically an all-in-one application that can be used to organise anything under the sun. In this article, I will be sharing 5 Notion page ideas that you can use to organise your life. There is also a free template that you can duplicate with one click into your own workspace, so read on to know more!

Before scrolling down, check out this quick video to watch how I use each page:
Notion Page Idea #1 – Weekly Reset Task List
The first page idea is a weekly reset task list, which contains all the nitty gritty to-dos when starting a new week. The brain is usually crammed with too much stuff to remember, so it’s really helpful to off-load mundane information into a list like this one. For my page, I have separated the to-dos into different sections:
- Cleaning up my physical space
- Organising my virtual workspace
- Reviewing my tasks and projects
- Planning for the new week
- Money-related matters
- Life in general
Ever since I set up this list, I’ve been feeling more organised and prepared for each new week. If a weekly list sounds too stressful for you, you can also personalise the list to make it a monthly reset instead.
Notion Page Idea #2 – Learning Notes
The second idea is a virtual notebook to capture learning notes. Right on top, I have included some quick links to learning resources as well as a photo from Unsplash to decorate the page. Every time I take an online course or webinar, I make sure to take down notes and add to my notes database. For each entry, I include the following:
- Course title
- Category, the main topic of the course
- Source, where I took the course
- Date of creation
I also pre-made a simple course notes page template that allows me to set up a new page easily. Lastly, I added different views for each course category to allow me to find my notes quickly according to the different topics.
Notion Page Idea #3 – Expenditure
The third idea is a page to organise things related to expenditure. On my page, I have 3 tables:
- Online purchases
- Subscriptions and bills
Putting items in the wishlist first will decrease the likelihood of impulse buying. For each item, I can do first research on the prices and models of the product, list out pros and cons, and think of alternative solutions before buying something new.
Under the table for online purchases, I record what I have purchased recently and the status of the delivery.
The subscriptions and bills table lets me review my subscriptions from time to time to prevent unnecessary spending.
Notion Page Idea #4 – Library (Free Template!)
The fourth idea is a library, to keep track of all things related to reading and books. Right on top are some links to reading resources. In the centre, I added a counter widget from Indify to track how many books I have read this year. On the right, I uploaded a photo from Unsplash with a link to my Book Shelf database, where I keep my book summaries and reviews.
The TBR (to be read) list database below is organised by priority, where 3 paper clips represent the books I want to read the most. I also added tags for the book topics and a source column to document where I got to know the book from.
This page is my favourite one in my Notion setup! If you would like to duplicate it into your own Notion workspace, feel free to click on this link to do so:
Notion Page Idea #5 – Encouragement Jar
The last idea is an Encouragement Jar to record positive messages and inspiring quotes. There would always be times when we feel unsure, discouraged or unproductive. This page is meant to be a little pick-me-up and extra motivation when we need it. On this page, I paste screenshots of kind YouTube comments (check out my channel here!), Instagram DMs and motivating quotes that I come across. Also, I like to colour the blocks to make the page as cheery and vibrant as possible.
A Collaboration With Abbey Sy
Lastly, Abbey Sy, an artist, author and content creator, has very kindly agreed to collaborate for this topic, and she shared 5 other creative page ideas on her video here:
I hope these Notion page ideas are useful for you. Feel free to personalise these pages and the free Library template to fit your lifestyle needs.
