Number 4 on the list was staying organized and keeping up with important dates. After getting a few emails I made this quick video (now.. don't judge too much as the video quality is not the greatest..but I will share all my links!) Now, I want to preface this whole blog post.. I am a technology addict! I have almost every app on my phone for listing and calendars.. and I still go back to actual pen and paper.
For the past 2 years I have been using the Uncalendar. I am a HUGE lister so I loved all the space that the Uncalendar gave me. The price was fantastic as well. There are 2 different sizes. I bought the small size the second year, but ended up buying the full size as well (have I mentioned that I love making lists?) But, if I am going to be organized, I am going to have space to make different notes on the items that I need to do. Check it out here
Reasons I loved the Uncalendar:
-Had monthly calendars along with weekly calendars and lots of pages for notes and other important information.
This year I jumped on the Erin Condren bandwagon. This is a great company and has lots of different things you can add to your calendar. I chose to get the lesson planner (but it was really because I couldn't wait for the Life Planner to come out.. apparently patience is not one of my virtues) In hindsight.. with my position the lesson planner was probably not the best option. You can check out Erin Condren here.
Reasons I loved the Erin Condren:
-I do like the size
-It does have space for listing.. and I think that if I had waited for the Life planner it would have been a much better fit for me
-It does have monthly calendars along with the weekly calendars.
Those are the 2 main ones that I have used.. and then a sponsored post for the Happy Planner came up in my Facebook feed. Guess what.. you don't have to order it online! You can of course.. but it was so nice to actually pick it up and feel it before spending the money (little secret.. I love organizing) You can get this at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I knew that the planner I had was not the best fit for me.. so I decided to go ahead and grab this one.
I have had my Happy Planner for a week.. and I LOVE IT!
Reasons I love it:
-The size is great and I bought the expanders so it fits even more items
-It is easy to organize- I bought the extra folders, notepads and stickers
-I think that it goes back to my #makingofamaker where it offers me a chance to be creative when I am listing
-The price is fantastic! I ended getting mine at Michaels and had a great coupon.
Do you have a favorite planner? How do you stay organized?
