Weekly Planner Spreads | July 2019

You guys probably don’t notice the difference, but it is pretty awesome I kind of like it. I think I’m going to film a article on it. I have now moved all of my planning supplies up into my office, which is kind of the end goal anyways some of the things I will still be filming on my dining table, which is downstairs.

It’s still a white background, see well really notice a big difference, but I’m very excited about this. It’s very cool. So anyway, let’s get started with the article today, I’m going to be sharing all of my July spreads. I haven’t done like a plan with me playing with me in a really long time, but what I have been noticing for myself is, I am getting a lot of planner piece if you will from filling in my plans daily.

So that’s really been working for me. So I’m just going to keep going with that and I’m going to be sharing every month with you guys my spreads and see what I did so my monthly is a little lackluster. Unfortunately, but I didn’t film this – I filmed my July one which I believe is already up, so I will link it wherever it goes anyway. So this is what happened in July, but let’s get to the a monthly spreads or not monthly.

I’m sorry the weekly spreads. This is the first week of July. I did more of a patriotic theme since July 4th was this day. I will link all of my like favorite shops that I used in this planner. If you guys have any questions about something like a little bit more specific, just leave them in the comments, and I will get back to y’all if you’re wondering where somethings from there is stuff in here, I will say that the shops are closed and has been Closed for many years, but I love their stickers, so I’m just going to keep using what I got you know so anyway, this week was kind of fun just had a random day off kind of in the middle of the week.

I did work on Friday. I think there was only like four no five people in my office like at all that went to work on that Friday, so it was actually kind of fun, um, so anyways, but that is this week. So just the red and blue a theme, and then we have the week of the 8th through the 14th. I did use this simply gilded, which I think is absolutely gorgeous. I am a little obsessed with simply gilded washi now and this star, Stardust, I think, is what’s called the Stardust pattern is totally my jam.

I love this one that it kind of goes from like pink to purple to blue. So I know I just thought it was really really pretty so clearly I had to have it krummy thing that happened this week is I went to the ER for chest pains so that was fun. I didn’t have any heart related issues. I was having over production of my stomach acid, which was pushing up and which felt like heart related problems. So I drove myself to the emergency room about 3:00 a.

M. That Wednesday early morning and got all the things done. Was there for several hours and then I took a sick day so anyways, but the unfortunately the pain, the tightness and the pressure did not go away. Unfortunately, so I did work from home for a little bit here and then I just needed to like try to lay down. It was very difficult to sleep during that time and then Friday. I also took a sick day because it was just it was so much pressure.

They did give me something for it, which is great, but it didn’t, you know, start to take effect until a little bit later, so it took effect kind of in this timeframe. Over here so anyway, that was what happened that week and yeah so and then I have my little pill reminders. I got these from a shop that is closed, but there’s a lot of shops that have these little little capsule pills and stuff, so yeah very korone um alright.

So this is a little bit of a hot mess, but you know there is a method to my. My hem y’all, so this week I also had a day off from my work. I actually won twins tickets and it was a day game. However, y’all know me: I ain’t really into the sports ball, so my uncle actually ended up taking them, which is great. He said he went, he had a great time. Also. Coincidentally, my brother is now a back from overseas and he came in that evening and they came over for dinner.

My was unfortunately still in the hospital he has been dealing with some kidney stones and yeah had another procedure, but then had to stay for quite a while longer so anyway. Also this week was the simply gilded pre-sale, so I made my list of all the ones that I wanted. Most of them are the Stardust pattern, which is right here, there’s some shooting star, which was awesome. There was one simple line and then the Twilight collection which are like boxes.

I wanted those as well so anyways, so that happened here and yeah. So I I don’t. I think the pre-sale actually started on like Thursday or Friday, but I I got my life together on Sunday to actually order it, but the presale is done now and as I’m filming this so Anna Marie alright. So and then this is actually this week. So this today is a Sunday ooh look at this. I can get this off the list whoo, so I have some things to film today, I’m going to be filming my Raskob cart organization and also I’m going to be doing my filming set up, which I hope you guys will enjoy and this week there was a Lot of stuff going on, I actually had to do two jobs on Monday and Tuesday, so another division of the company that I work for the person that does my job was on vacation.

So I was doing his job as well as my own anyway. So I had to do that and then on Wednesday my brother came over. He helped me hang some mirrors and then I made dinner for us and then someone on my team was out on vacation on Thursday Friday. So yeah I don’t know I mean it was. It’s a good time and my mom came over last night. We had a wonderful time. We had to chat and stuff like that, so it’s still pretty early in the day, even though it doesn’t look like it’s early in the day, because it is about to storm here in Minnesota.

Unfortunately, so I’m going to try to get all this filming done before the sky turns totally dark, but you never know, and then this evening I’m going to be doing some meal prepping and then that is it for the entire month. Here is my budget actually for August I’ve already posted it, but I’m really loving how everything is here. You know, like I, don’t know, here’s here’s my July right here but yeah and then you know moving into August.

I have some things written down already, which is great, and then you know I’m going to keep going with what I’ve been doing and filling in. I hope you guys enjoy. You know seeing what I have done after the fact you know, usually when I get home here I’ll, give you guys like a little sneaky peeky of something-something all right. So let’s do like this. Alright. So here is just a random week. So August, 26, through September 1.

What I like to do is I like to actually set up my work first and then, if I want to use something down here or like it’s, the first of them Doyle’s going to have his monthly meds. If I have any birthdays to put in paydays, I have one of my co-workers: that’s going to be in Minnesota, so like the things I know about, I want to put in, but then when I get home I usually I put my washi into like six or Seven, that’s the latest I’ll ever be in the office is in seven, but it’s only if I’m trying to really finish a project that I can’t wait till the next day or something like that.

Most of the time I leave the office between three and five thirty, like that’s just kind of a good. You know when I leave so I will end up ripping the washi where I leave the office and then I’ll kind of fill in the rust down at the bottom. Here, I’ve kind of been using that for like YouTube or filming, or anything like that like if I need to edit something or in posting something or I need to correspond with somebody about.

You know life on the internets, but um yeah, that’s kind of how it looks, and then I just keep going so not all of my weeks are filled out how majority of them are, but not all of them are filled out and I’ve just been trying to Use what I have as for like stickers and washi, and things like that, but you know I do love a good pre-sale clearly so anyway, let’s flip back to what I did this week. So let’s do use alright, but da da da all right.

So I’m going to call it out the article here. Thank you guys so much for reading, if you have any questions, feel free to put them down in the comments below. I am going to be putting all of the shops that I love to use down in the description box. Some of them are affiliate links and there are. There is one for sure that will have a discount code so make sure to check that out. It’s because you know who doesn’t like a little bit of savings right guys so anyway, I’m going to jet.

2019/2020 Planner Choice | Erin Condren

If you guys have been following me on social media or you’ve, seen my past couple of articles about this, I will leave a link in the cards as we kind of go along. This was the first planner that I got in PR and I got to pick everything out which was fabulous, but then I went to go wild, oh by the way.

This is the colorful version of the hourly layout in the gold coil July through June. Okay, so that being said, I went to go wild, which was fabulous by the way and I was invited to an Erin Condren party and there was erin condren binders out, even in just like the general admission areas, and I got to looking at the binder and I was like oh, I need that too, and the color way for this I feel like is so pretty so it was torn.

So then, on launch day, I ordered this I’ll leave the article up in a cart. If you want to look at this a little bit more in detail, so I got this and I’m like. I love this too. What am I going to do so? I thought about it for awhile and I really thought about, like my planning style, like what I like and if you guys know anything about me. I am a very like neutral person in my normal daily life, but in my planner I feel like I’m a colorful person, so I decided on the colorful.

However, I didn’t decide on this one. I was a little sneaky and ordered something else. So I got this: this is the Navy binder. I wanted to see the Navy – and this is the gray binder, which I’ll show you in a second and the colorful our Lee is inside of here. So I think that this is. This is the one guys. This is the one, so let me show you what’s inside and how I set this up so hold on. Let me move this for just a second, so this planner and this planner are going to go to some friends.

I change the cover on this because I wanted to use the cover in my binder and I’ll explain why in just a moment, so this is going to be given to a friend and then this one here I started moving into this just be like completely honest And my contacts page in here is gone because I started playing with it and I’m like oh gosh. What’s in great so yeah, the contacts page has gone in here, but I will still give this a to a planner friend that I know will absolutely love it.

I want to talk about the binder for just a quick second, this really bothers me. I feel like you have to like hold everything for it to like properly closed. If that makes sense like it doesn’t I don’t know it closes, don’t get me wrong, but I feel like if you don’t kind of like push everything to the middle of the binder clip or whatever you want to call it. It just kind of hangs out hold up. Let me let me explain it a little bit more.

So if I didn’t help it, let’s move this. It would go like this. Do you see it? I’m saying like all that’s right there, okay anyway, so this needs a little like Oh needs a little help, and then this one’s good, alright. So that was the gray one which I think is beautiful as well, but I went with the Navy. I thought I wanted to see what the Navy look like and then, if I didn’t like the Navy, I could just swap the binders, but this is the Navy.

It’s gorgeous. You guys know that I don’t really like personalization, so I didn’t do that plus. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep this. This also has whoops the gold hardware as well, which is like my favorite, and then I put these big erin condren pockets on either side of the binder. So I’m going to be keeping these in here. That’s for coffee, brick, planner and they are like little transparent, dots and I’ll.

Show you how I use those in just a moment, but I’m going to keep those are right there and then I have another one right here and you get a packet too, and the Erin Condren website will be linked below for you guys. This is one of bookmarks and I used this to cut washi mainly, and then I took my old cover off of my coil bound planner and put it in here, and the reason I did that is because of that issue I was just talking about so I Have the back cover in here as well, so I feel like when I’m ready to close this up.

I can just easily go like this and I feel like I’m not going to tear the pages if that makes sense like if there’s something like kind of hard behind it. So that’s how I am going to use that so anyway yeah. So this is what I’m going to use. I was actually talking to a co-worker of mine recently because they wanted me to bring in my planner, because some of them have decided to become Erin Condren fans as well, so she was like wow.

This is so colorful. I’m like yeah, I know she’s like I would have just never thought that you would be a really colorful person, and I said you know the only place that I’m colorful in my life is inside of my planner and that’s kind of like what threw me over The edge of like okay, I need a colorful planner, there’s just no way around it. This is very similar from last year. I track a few different things, and all of these stickers are from coffee, brick.

Planner. There is a link down below, as well as a coupon code, if you all are interested for 20 % off, but I track my cycle, which is why I have these over here because clearly I don’t know when that’s going to be happening and then I have All my paydays and then I have work holidays in here too. If I decide to track something else, I’ll put it up here with a key and then I have a bunch of different colors.

She has a ton of different colors in these little transparent dots. So anyway, this goes from july 2019 through a December 2020, and then here I’m not sure what I’m going to do last year. I ended up doing like home projects, but I’m not sure what I want to do this year, so we’re just going to like leave it for now and let it marinate you know and then July July is clearly not here. Yet I’m still in the end of May, when I’m filming this so for July, I really don’t have anything major going on.

I did decide to open up my little package of long sticky notes and put one on every single month. So if there’s like birthdays or special events that I need to remember or something like that, I have them, you know a little place to write them down. I did put in my garbage and then I do have a hair appointment on Wednesday. That day on the 24th so anyway, that is that that’s all I know what’s going on, but I absolutely love this.

I think this is so pretty. I kind of feel like with the neutral I’d kind of get sick of it. After a while, then, I feel like for me there’s more functionality in the colorful, even though I know some people are very anti. This, like color block here, but I don’t really mind it also something I decided to do, which I hope you can see on camera. It’s so hard cuz. This like viewfinder, is like teeny, tiny small.

Over here I decided to take some Christian designs, transparent stickers and put in like paydays into the current month that it shows down here. So this is July and then I have to get paid July 5th and July 19. So it’s just something to track and then also if I want to track something else or if I know if someone’s going on, I could do that as well. But I love this little thing down in the corner.

I love that change. I think that’s so nice and then I’ve got that little guy right there and then in to auto stand. Then again I did trash and stuff, but let’s go to the back and take a little gander at what’s in there, and then we have our notes pages. Oh something I should say I did not do. Is let’s see here. I put everything in here. However, not everything so I put everything in here through January.

Sorry, I’m kind of like all over the board today. So I put all my weeks up until January in here and then once February hits then I just put in the month and then, like you know, this is the back of the month and then I pushed it into the next month. So I have all of my other pieces of paper upstairs in my office, so when these months start to happen, can put them in here. I just didn’t want the binder to be totally full.

I wanted some extra room in here and not make it like. So bulky and I do have the room to store – you know the extra pages and whatnot. So that’s what I did for February through December of 2020. So but I do have you know my months out there, so I can always jot things down anyway. Now we’re into the notes section, and so we’ve got a few things that I actually did a little bit of planning before I filmed this article because I felt like if I did this on camera, it would be like hours long and I’m just like not all About that life anyway, and of course I did it at like mmm like 10:30 last night and there’s like no lighting at that point in my home, so anyway, I decided to do something really similar like I did last year, and I actually have it sitting right Off camera here, so this is my one from the previous year and then I put in like July through June, and these are just like tasks so like 2019, 2020 monthly tracking cute little house sticker there from coffee break planner.

And then I got these from Christian designs and then this washi is actually from Christian designs, but it’s available at Michael’s, only so very fun. So these are all the things that I want to achieve in the next year or so so I just want to like you know, have the task done so for me. Obviously yours is going to be a little bit different and if you have different categories like, let me know in the comments down below, maybe need to add some.

So anyway, I have a budget donations. I tend to donate something every single month or a bag of things clean out the fridge clean out the freezer clean out the pantry. That’s done sometimes weekly, but you know it’s something that I need to do at least once a month. My air filter. I don’t need to change it every single month, but it’s nice to see when I’m doing it. I think it’s about like every three months.

My color gun service is not every month, but it’s nice to see when the last time was checking smoke detectors. My bedding and blankets, organizing my files changing out my toothbrush head clean out the car, a car oil change, face, mask I’m trying to get better at that, like the whole self care thing, I don’t know it’s just like very difficult for me and I need to Just like make the time – I don’t know if you guys struggle with that too, and I’m like one to talk like I don’t have kids and I have a very like subdued life, but still it just sometimes it’s just difficult to make the time and then no Plastic bags: that’s like a big thing that I am going to try to start well, I’m actually already starting it, but I’m going to try to not use any plastic bags in the next year.

I have so many reusable bags. Those Erin Condren ones are just amazing and I love them, and I have so many of them in my car ready to go, and you know you pop into like CVS or Walgreens or the gas station or whatever, and I’m like. Why do I have this plastic bag? I should just always have a reusable bag in my bag. So that’s what I’ve been doing. It’s been working out really well and if I’m clearly like going to the grocery store I’ll put like five or six of them in my bag and if I don’t use them all great, but I would rather over pack then under pack, because they’re so lightweight anyways.

So I’m that’s like a goal of mine and I don’t know if it’s weird but that’s like something I want to do in the next year or so so anyway. Um there is my little dot grid pages and then I haven’t filled out my contacts yet because I didn’t want to be all creepy and stuff Here. I am going to put in all of my house stuff, so the name of the heating and air company. That I view is the name of the electrician.

I’ve been using my HOA contact, my mortgage company, like any like service related thing like culligan. They come over and do service in my home and, like anything house related I’d like to keep it in here, so I think that will be good and then oh over here I put in so this is January 20 January of 21 wow, that’s weird to say Through December of 21 – and I put in all of the pay days as well with those same stickers from Christian designs, those transparent circles – and then here are the sticker sheets, which I decided to put in the back here.

I might end up taking these out because a lot of times, if you guys have seen like any of my other planner articles a lot of times. I kind of forget that they’re back here and then I don’t end up using them. But if they’re in here, which is like my little Erin Condren sticker organizer, then I know that they’re here, so I might just end up putting these in here. Eventually, these are just all loose sticker sheets from Erin Condren that I love so anyway.

They’re in here for now, like I said I might, I might move them – I don’t know so yeah and then we’ve got these ones too. These are so nice very underrated, but very nice, and then I have my back cover to the coil planner, which I love that too, and then here there is that big pocket again, so you can slip something in there. I was actually going to use this. I decided I was going to put this hold on and here’s stop talking so these little flaps kind of replaced this and I already bought it, but I think I’m going to give that to someone that is going to take one of those planners.

What I did last you, which I absolutely loved, is when I was tracking this for like my cycle and stuff, I put this in here and had this little flap here and had this inside and it worked out great, but the more I thought about it. I was like you know I kind of like more streamlined like that. So anyway, this is going to go to the friend, so this kind of replaced that, but I mean everyone, just kind of needs to do what works for them.

So anyways that’s going to be it for me today. I just wanted to share with you guys what I am planning on using for the 2019 2020 year in my Erin Condren hourly. Please please. Let me know in the comments below what you’re going to be using to organize your life for the upcoming year, even if it’s not an Erin Condren, that’s okay! Even if it’s like your cell phone, that’s alright and if y’all are interested in any Erin Condren products.

There are links down below, for you guys I will be leaving links to a Christian and also coffee break planner as well, because I used some of their stickers in here. So if you guys want to check out those websites they’re right down below, but thank you guys so much for reading.
