Finding Planner Peace

I was actually at my friend Ryan’s apartment yesterday, um, I don’t know in this articles going up, but Ryan has his own YouTube blog, which I will link up in the card for you guys he is a man with the plans, and I brought my binder over And we were kind of looking at each other’s planners and whatever, and I have been decorative planning for several years now.

Actually I started a decorative planning when I started my youtube blog. So what like, four or five years – something like that and it’s taken a long time for me to really understand my style and figure out. What makes me happy so we had a discussion about planner piece and if it’s even achievable and all of that stuff. So I wanted to kind of share with you guys my mentality of how I have gotten to the point where I feel like.

I have achieved the planner piece, the illustrious elusive planner piece. So a lot of my journey with planning is centered around the Erin Condren products. I have tried several different things and what I keep going back to is simplicity. For me, I am NOT one of those people that can have four or five different planners. It’s too much for me, my brain doesn’t work that way. I have a very simple life.

I am single, no kids, no partner. I have a dog like that’s it, so I don’t really have that much stuff to track or write down or whatever you know. But there was a time where I was using a couple of different planners for different things, and now everything is in this planner. What I use now is the Erin Condren binder system, and I’m just going to flip through and like talk to you guys, while I’m flipping so yeah, but this has just been working really well for me, oh my little, my little dots are over here.

Here we go, I’ve done several articles on this particular planner. I did put in a just cover because I feel like that helps with you know not ruining these pages, but I did actually end up ordering a neutral planner, because I love the way that the neutral was. But, to be honest, I decided that neutral is not for me and you guys are probably thinking like what Emily you’re like super neutral. Yes, yes, I am, however, I’m super neutral in my like regular daily life.

However, in my planner is like the one place that I can be super colorful and more bold and loud, and it doesn’t cause me anxiety, like color in general, like lots of like big colors, really cause me legit anxiety. So that’s why my home is very neutral. My wardrobe is very neutral, I’m very neutral, however, in here I actually really enjoy it, so it’s kind of like my little outlet, if that makes sense anyway.

Here are these pages. This has where I track my menstrual cycle paydays and then like work holidays, so I mean you could track whatever the heck you want to on there here. I actually just made this not too long ago. I had one of these in my last planner too, and this is like kind of just like projects or things I’d like to do so like I have my entryway living room, half bath garage laundry office, kitchen, dining room, loft master bath bedroom, and then I have An extra one, but just thought that you know this would be kind of cute to put in there and then over.

Here is my first July, a budget that I’ve done. I used to have a erin condren, deluxe monthly planner, and that only has my budget, and that was it. I love the idea of the deluxe monthly planner when I was actually tracking every single dollar that came in and came out, but I don’t do that anymore. I do follow the Dave Ramsey plan and, at the point that I was tracking everything I was, you know paying down debt saving up my six month, emergency and saving for a house so like that was really nice to have like a tangible place to see everything Like the incoming and the outgoing, but now that I’ve already purchased the house, I’m in baby step four and six, because I don’t have kids, so I don’t not doing college savings.

So I just like an overview. That’s just works super well for me, and I decided to do that in the sheet at the very front of the month. So anyways. If you guys want to see any of my budget bud, you don’t want to see any of my budgeting articles I’ll, throw it up and a card for you guys um, but yeah, and then this is the first month. I just wrote down some things, but I never really. I don’t know I don’t know what to do with this page.

This is this is my problem and I know that some people have actually like taped these pages together, so it just flips to the month. I may or may not do that, I’m not sure I mean I might find a use for these two pages at some point, but this is my month of July. That’s already happened and then speaking of planner piece. So, for me, what has worked really well, especially when you’re first starting is don’t buy all the things.

I know that’s so hard to do, because I bought all the things and I ended up not using all the things this is before. I discovered that people had like dedicated a planner, instagrams and people did. Plan with me is on YouTube and I did not know any of that yet so I had already established my youtube blog just a little bit. I had done a few articles and I decided as soon as I started or as soon as I got my first planner, that I was going to start planning articles and I did, and I actually didn’t do any talking at all.

I mean I said like hello and then I would just you know fast-forward through it, and then he like show you all at the end and it was like very, very decorative and I felt like everything needed to have a theme because that’s the only stuff, I Kind of saw online, it was very femi and it inevitably didn’t end up working for me, which really sucked, but that’s okay. Over the years, I have established a love for two major sticker brands that have really worked for me and the first one is coffee, brick planner, which all these little scallop boxes and then all the scripty words are from her and then I also am in love With Christian designs, I feel like the majority – well not in the majority at least half of the stickers in each shop really appeal to me and that just I don’t know it works well with my brain that I can support these two shops by the things I Need and I feel like it all kind of flows well together.

I hope that makes sense for me and a normal like weekly basis. Usually my two or my go-to things are these scallop boxes because I usually will write in things that are happening, and then these are also which I absolutely love, that they are mat removable stickers. So you can actually peel them up so say I didn’t. You know, edit that day I can pull that up and it’s just so easy. I do obviously have other sticker shops too, but I kind of just sprinkle those in where they go and I’m not super dedicated to one shop or another.

In that respect, I do like little icons like this. One is a 110 and a million this ones once more with love. This little dr. Guy is from plan to plan sticker Co yeah. So I mean I love like little things like that. Just to emphasize the event in the box also, these little blobbies are super cute from oh hello, stationery like there’s so many fun things to put in there to kind of, like judge up your planner, if you like that, if you like super basic and all you Want to do is just have different, colored pens like you go, you do your thing.

You know so yeah, that’s kind of like my mentality, like walking through how I lay my stickers down and how I choose what I choose. So this is like the week of July 4th. Clearly this is July 4th right here and then um here is this week, um so yeah. But another thing I really wanted to talk about was that I know there are some people in the planner community that get not necessarily upset, but maybe like a little perturbed if other people copy their style – and I feel like copying or emulating is how people find Their style, so I always take it as a compliment.

If someone’s going to tag me on instagram or send me an email saying: hey, here’s, my first spread or here’s a spread that I just did and I really emulated your style or I copied your style. What do you think or whatever like? I think, that’s amazing, because that’s how you find what works for you, one of my biggest style inspirations, has been Jen plans and I will leave her Instagram down below. If you are interested.

She also has a youtube blog, which I will link for you guys if you see her style, it’s very different than this, but this is kind of how I came to this conclusion. She has a lot more white space than I do typically in her weeks, and she does do some of the decorative icons. But I definitely do a lot more and I did try out her style like exactly for the longest time, and I just figured you know what I love that style.

It really works for me. I, like true times of you, know I work and then I put my washi in and then you know. At the end of the day, I cut my washi and then I put in what’s going on and what’s happening, but for me I wanted a little bit more decoration in mine and some of you may see this and go oh, my gosh. This is so overwhelming. I don’t know how you’re getting anything done and some of you may see this and go.

This is super boring? Yes, oh everyone has a different way of doing things, but finding that person or that account or several accounts, either on Instagram or Facebook or whatever and just kind of using those as like, okay. Well, I’ve never thought of doing it this way, but maybe I should try this and see how it works. For me, in my life you know Jenna and I actually know each other. We’ve met a few times now, but you know she’s a busy mom.

She works outside the home. She is married and also has three kids and a dog, so her life is so different than mine, but I could still take inspiration from what she has done and what has worked well for her style. So I just kind of took her style and revamped it for myself, because that’s really at the end of the day, what you have to do, you have to figure out what works for you and not necessarily worry about what everybody else thinks of your planner.

Your planner is for you and no one else. I, however, really like to make mine pretty I do have you know a blog online. However, I don’t have to share this stuff. If I don’t want to so you know, I just really enjoy sharing it, and I make it pretty because I want to make it pretty. You know I’m not really doing anything for the camera any longer. I’m really doing it because I love it so anyways. This is another week, that’s all filled in I’m going to flip a little bit more here and show you some other things that have really helped me we’re into August already.

Oh my gosh. So this is actually this week. This is today, and hopefully I’m going to get this up sweet so as I went through this week, so these are kind of like the Emily Leigh colors. So I kind of did a little bit of rainbow and then over here is just kind of whatever. But what I have done – and I’ve actually done this – this is how the conversation started with Ryan yesterday is what I have done, and not what I was explaining to him is that I went through the majority of the weeks for the next year and just put In my work and anything else that I knew was happening so like a birthday or like right here, oh I have a giveaway on Monday.

I don’t think this article is going to be up by Monday, but you never know, and I have like a girls night with my friends Megan. I jazz – and you know like there’s stuff in here and like my trash day, there’s stuff in here that I already know that’s going to happen. So if I lay this down, it’s so much easier for me that then, like mentally throughout the week, come upstairs to my office and then like fill in the evenings or anything that needed to happen in the day time or what’s happening in the weekend or what’s Coming up so that’s really helpful for me to like pre-plan at least the things that I know, and even if say this the day of the 8th.

You know I’m off work or something I can lift this up and I can put in something else. It’s not a problem, but my biggest challenge was just starting with a blank page and not even having like my work in there and then it’s like gosh. Now I have to think about what I want to do. I got to think about what theme I want to go with and about a month ago I ended up. I think it was actually the July 4th weekend.

I just was super inspired and started just planning out my weeks and it’s just making my life so much easier cuz. I don’t have to think about it anymore, so yeah, but then like here, I’m going to be on a road trip with my mom like the last half of this, but I am working over here. So yeah it’s just like, let’s just put in the things and then also like, I have other things going on so like I found out that the wild collab sale is going to be the 22nd through the 25th.

So I just kind of put a little sticky in here and then these little sticky notes are from Erin Condren and then I have another planner meetup, which I haven’t put in here yet and yeah. I even put in like all my budgeting things and anything that I know is in here like Labor Day Patriot day I’ll put in, and then you know I’ll, just put in little page markers for the things that are kind of pending ish, like I’m going to Go to state 4 with my mom and all that good stuff.

So yeah, I don’t know, I just think like this is going to work really well for me in the end that I don’t really need to think anymore. Oh maybe that’s the theme of this articles. Like I don’t need to think about it anymore, but I just really like the way that this feels I’m putting in all my paydays, I’m typically putting in laundry clearly. If I don’t necessarily do the laundry that day, I can still lift this stuff up and I could put it somewhere else without an issue.

I still have some weeks that I don’t have anything which is totally fine and you know I’m still consuming products, I’m still buying things, because I can’t help myself, but you know at that point I was like you know, I’m not sure what I want to do For that week, so I just skipped it, and then this one was actually blank until the other day, and I got my simply gilded box, the one with the malls – and this is the Stardust.

What was in there and I’m like this – is beautiful. I love it. So yeah, but I don’t have I’m out of my little work stickers and I haven’t decided which scallop boxes I want to use for this color palette just yet, but clearly I have until September, to figure it out, there’s also a grilled cheese festival in Minneapolis. I’m really excited about that plus there’s going to be one. So you know I want to go to that um, but yeah, but I like got like I’m going all the way into the end, so yeah there’s like a mother Blanc, one here well, this is a little bit.

Funky um here is like a little spooky one for you know, October and then into the next month. I’ve only done this, but this is like the actual Halloween Day, but yeah. So I mean I’ve obviously put like my dog’s monthly meds, that kind of stuff. You know like this is just like helping my mind work and I hope that this might help. One of you know, hopefully one of you out there, maybe the several of you.

I don’t know, but this is just really like working for me and yes, I’ve already made the decisions and yes, I can’t really use any new stuff, but that’s why I left a few weeks blank. So I think that’ll work pretty well for me and then like into December. I have well this is in December, but it’s actually the week of Thanksgiving, but I have some of this written down. I don’t know what I’m doing for Thanksgiving, probably hopefully nothing cuz.

That’s just my jam yeah, and this is like the first full week of December. Oh also, I got a question from Ryan. When I was we didn’t, you know we were flipping through this he’s like what are these little things mean over here and they’re, my paydays. That’s what they mean. You might not be able to see that one very well, but this one you can soulfully see but yeah. Those are my paydays, so I just keep track of that on my little thing there but yeah.

You know I don’t have anything there. This is the week of Hanukkah, so I wanted to use lots of Blues to celebrate and then the lights all that good stuff. This is the week of Christmas, which I think is so cute, and I used this kit, not a kit but like a couple of sticker sheets from one town and a million which I thought were super cute. This washes from 110 and a million of this washes from 110 and a million, and then this little green band is signifying my coworker is off, but it’s actually from one of the Erin Condren sticker books, I think from a long time ago, but it had the Gold and it had the right green tone – and I was like – let’s do it so anyway, but yeah I mean I’m going all the way into everything for this.

So this one’s really cute, which I love this one’s actually my birthday week, so this is January 9th – is my birthday yeah and I I’m also. I don’t even think I brought this up yet, but I’m also trying to stay motivated with bringing my lunches to work. So I got these really cute little like lunchboxes and then like on my birthday I’ll, probably go out, but whatever so yeah. This is the week of Doyle birthday.

This is Doyle’s birthday right there. It’s also my brother’s birthday, so yeah, but you know I just I’m loving the way that this is working for my brain and you know. I hope that you guys get a little bit of inspiration from this as well. It’s so cute. This is Valentine’s, even though I don’t have a final time, but that’s alright. This is a Valentine’s Day and then into March. I’ve done a few things love the way.

This looks it’s like huh, more springy, and then we’ve got st. Patrick’s Day week. So I mean I don’t know I just I just really like the way this looks, and I hope that you guys to do as well this one’s like a galaxy theme, which I love this washi, it’s like a sample that I had and then um. I don’t know I use this like art, deco II washi as well, so maybe I’m going to just stop it there. There are more weeks that I have filled out, but once I get into May I really haven’t done anything because you know if I get new stuff, I want to be able to use it.

I just prep ahead and that’s just been working really well for me and how this whole planner piece thing works for my brain. I hope you guys enjoyed the article, please let me know down below what has really worked for you to find your own planner piece or find your own planners style. I would really really love to know. We are all different. We are all unique, but I feel like we all have the opportunity to take inspiration from each other and I feel like there is definitely room for all of us as well, whether it’s on Instagram or Facebook or YouTube.

You know, I think everyone has a unique voice, even if your style is still growing and still moving forward. So anyway, that’s going to be it for me today. Thank you guys so much for reading and it feel free to thumbs up subscribe to all those things. Those youtubers tell you to do and I will see y’all in the next article bye guys well folks, it’s time to kick it old-school.

2018 Budget Planner Setup

I know I’ve been like really lacking with the budget articles lately, but since I like, taking a little bit of a step back from YouTube and finding out what I do want to share and don’t want to, share budgets have been kind of a part of that. But I do want to have like budget related content for you guys too so anyway.

This is a erin condren, monthly, deluxe, planner, yep or deluxe monthly planner. Sorry, I opted to pay a little bit more and get a whole bunch of notes pages in the back. I believe some erin condren links down below if it’s your first time ordering through erin condren. There is a link where you can sign up and get a $ 10 coupon code emailed to you. If you place your order and once your order ships, I actually get a $ 10 off like redeemable voucher code as well, so yeah also there’s another link that is just directly to the erin condren website, and that is an affiliate link.

So I just like to be upfront, but it really helps support me and my blog, if you use that to you, know, check out and whatnot so anyways, I’m not really going to go like into this too much. I already have another article on this, and here is how I’m going to set it up. I want to do like one month with you guys or maybe a couple of months with you guys and just kind of show you what works for me and my brain, and maybe it will help you I don’t know so anyway.

I am going to use these I’ll put that to the side it’s going to become apparent in a minute, so these are the let’s see floating florals stylized sticky note pad there’s 30 of them and they are adhesive on like a little less than half of it. So I’ve actually never used these before, but I thought this would be really really great to put over on this like little side bar here and the reason being is, if things are coming up in that month, that you know about it’s easier to budget for them.

If you like, you know, have it written down, so even something as simple as like birthday: parties like cuz. Obviously, people have birthdays, but not everybody has like a party. You know. So I’m going to put this right on the side here and then I’m going to put in you know anything that I know about for the month of January, which I don’t know of anything in January. That’s like an expense. That’s coming up! Oh no! What I do I do know what’s coming up um.

My dog needs some medication in January, so we’ll put in oil meds and then this will be basically my running list. So if I think of something in January or if I commit to something in January, then you know I have I have this down. So I know to put some of this stuff in my budget and then the next two pages is where, like I put my budget stuff so yeah also, these sticker sheets are from coffee break planner and I’m basically obsessed with these.

Hence the weird little tweezers, but I do like to use these to like indicate my paydays. You can get ones from her. These are transparent, dots. You can get ones from her that are all one color. I was going to say flavor, that’s not right, Emily or you can get like the multicolored one. So I’m going to work on this one just because I want to use green. But if I run out I’ve got another sheet here, so I don’t know.

I just kind of fold the paper a little bit take the little thingy majiggy out and put the date in and now I don’t remember what date I get paid mm-hmm all right hold on. Let’s take a little break and well, if I’m going to figure this out all right, so that didn’t take as long as I thought, but my first payday is going to be the fourth. So let me actually zoom you guys it. I can kind of show you whoops of what I do a little bit, so I like to kind of line it up as well as I can like over the date and then push her down and that’s what I do and then with this I just kind Of peel it off like that, and then I get paid every other Thursday, but I hate when you lay these down and they were like kitty Wampus or I didn’t land right cuz.

Your fingers are so big, but man, the tweezer game, so good. So good. You guys so this is basically how a month is going to look for me, I’m going to put all of my things in and then I’ll come back, and I will just share with you guys. You know some of my other expenses that I have coming up and all of that stuff too. And oh, if you’re interested in between the pages is this page to the left, this page to the right and then there’s a dot grid, page and then you’re into February.

So I’m going to work on February and then I’ll be back! Oh okay! So now I’m into December, let’s go back to February and we’ll kind of talk. I didn’t really put in many things that I, like can think of off the top of my head, that I know of that are going to be coming up expenses, but I just wanted to share what it looks like so far. It’s very bare-bones. This is my sheet of my coffee break planner stickers.

I do have a couple left, so that’s actually very exciting if I wanted to which I may actually do, is um go into like this page of 2018 and put them in like here into here. Maybe right yeah, I might do that. I might do that too hold on. Let’s do that real, quick all right, so I used exactly as many greens that were in here and I used up a full sheet Wow all right, so this actually looks really nice.

I didn’t really bother with doing 2017 because it’s not really relevant to like what I’m working on in this participate: vigor planner um but yeah. So let’s go back to February. This is what it looks like like. I said I don’t really have any like coming up expenditures that I know about in February. This is what my March looks like, which is one of the I like to call them the magic months, because they have three paydays, which is really awesome.

So I love those months. I didn’t really have anything specific in that month that I know of, but what I’m going to do after this article is done because my actual budget planner from 2017 isn’t with me, I’m going to go back and look at the different months that I have obviously Budgeted and know certain things and I’m going to look at my budget and see if there were other expenses that I just can’t think of off the top of my head, like what I’m thinking about right now is like travel or like any upcoming, like annual things That I just know are going to be happening.

Here’s my April again, nothing exciting. It gets more exciting. You guys! Don’t worry here we go, here’s may go wild is on there I’m kind of excited. However, I haven’t gotten a ticket yet cuz they haven’t gone on sale. As of me filming this, so I’m hoping I can snag a ticket here, they’re really really hard to get so I’m not sure but go wild. Is I think, if I remember right, it’s like Thursday, Friday Saturday Sunday like the first week, I’m pretty sure, maybe the second I’m pretty sure it’s the first though anyways, so that is an annual planner conference and I’ve never been before.

I think this is the third one and I really really want to go so anyways, so that’s happening and May hopefully I get to go and then in June I’m going to Alaska I’m going on a cruise with my mom and my aunt and I’m super excited. We’re actually flying into Vancouver and then taking the cruise ship up to Alaska and yeah, I’m going to be gone for quite a bit of days, but yeah. I’m really really excited for that and then also Doyle’s like annual vet visit is typically in June kind of like the end of June.

Typically, so it’s just nice to kind of budget in for that and then July I don’t have anything that I can think of, but in August I have the State Fair, because hello, the State Fair, is amazing and you definitely need to budget for that, because Wow And I have my like: Auto tabs are typically due at the very end of August into like early September. So I like to put that kind of in my August budget, regardless of kind of when it comes out, and then this is another one of those like magic months, so that’s exciting and then in September I don’t have anything.

I don’t think I had anything on October, either no nothing in October and then come November. I like to prep for holiday gifts. So actually right now is I’m just in the very beginning of December, and I’ve got like two more things. I need to get for holiday gifts and it’s just gift cards at Target, so I figured just next time I was at Target. I would just go pick up a couple of gift cards, which is probably going to be today to be completely honest, but all of the actual like gifting I already have so I like to get that all done by November, because I really don’t want to go Out shopping in December, at all I mean obviously I’m going to go out to like you know, go get food and stuff, but I just don’t like to be at the stores, if at all possible, and then in December I don’t know what I’m doing for my Holiday plans this upcoming 2018, obviously 2017 s like holiday.

You know weeks have not happened yet, so I’m not really sure what the plan is. So I’m not sure if I’m going to be going to Florida to visit my parents if they’re going to come here, you know what the plan is so anyway, but I’m just going to you know, leave it there and then I once I know kind of what’s Happening, I can just start writing stuff down, even if I find out like next week, something’s hex that’s happening in like July.

I can go back to July and then write it down. So then I kind of know – and it prompts me to say: oh that’s right and if it’s something big like say, like my Alaska trip, I’m already kind of budgeting for that right now, anyways, so it’s kind of just one of those bigger expenses. That’s not like! Oh, it’s just like an oil change, or it’s just whatever and as I was actually putting in these little dots, I was kind of thinking to myself when I was you know using these that it would actually be kind of cool like if you’re going to like A dual income household or say you have a couple of jobs that you could actually use like the green.

For I mean I like the green just because it’s like signifies money, but if you wanted to like say it’s like you and your husband and you want to use like yellow for you and you know orange for him and then maybe you have a second job Or he has a second job or another stream of income. You could use like the blue, like just so. You knew what was happening, but you can use these little transparent, dots really for anything in your planner, but using a tweezer is like a total GameChanger.

MINIMALIST PERSONAL PLANNER | FLIP THROUGH | FILOFAX RICHMOND

I have a flip through a detail flip through of my personal file, sacks Richmond planner. I did a flip through on my Instagram, but I wasn’t too too specific of the things that is in here. How I set things up, but I’ll give you a detailed look now. So if you’d like to see what I have in my personal Richmond final facts, stay tuned, ok guys.

So the first thing I got this planner from the thrift store just found all of them on my posh I’ll. Try to leave a link to my parchment ich, but I’m last year started finding all these planners people were getting rid of planners like the beginning of the year and they were nice planners. I could tell they were nice planners, they just wasn’t for me. I wasn’t really into grains at the time and now think about it.

There were some pocket rings that I had, and I so so I was in a Thurston when they just on a whim looking for stuff to sell on my posh and came across this one. So I asked my Instagram friends like: should I sell it because I kind of knew it was worth something which I’m just drawn to expensive stuff anyway, but I knew this is worth something and most of my ex-girlfriends like no. You need to keep that.

So I’m sorry I’ll keep it so I attempted minimal planning in here. It didn’t go so well. All I did was check my orders and that’s it in the state on my desk, nothing more nothing less so this year I said I’m going to give it another. Try and I’m just going to set it up for the cheap. I don’t want to spend a lot of money with purchasing inserts from my cost and paper and other places, and I don’t use it like.

I didn’t use it last year so anyway, I purchased this on clip here from Ollie clip I’ll try to leave the link below. I love love, love, love these and again. I’d only think I paid maybe five dollars for this. It was less, I believe highly. It was less probably three – I don’t know so here on the left side, which I think is getting a little drinky. I have this paperclip because a lot of the little dots that I use I need to purchase, I mean I need to pick them up with the paperclip.

I have this little Schlag I made out of some vellum that I got from like Michaels. This little paper clip I need last year sometime. It is just something I think I downloaded off of Pinterest. I turned it into a die crack laminate it and just stuck a paper clip in there. This die cut is a die cut. I was selling at one point and a sticker, and it is just a chandelier like that, and then I just threw these in here, because I found them on my desk and they are just some little icons.

Go for you or either rose. Gold rose gold for real icons and then this is a freebie from Jessica. I don’t know Jessica Pearson, I don’t know, and then I have this little underling card. It was a pack of like journaling cards. I got out of Julian’s, I believe, and then on the inside here I was cleaning up my room and opened the box from simply gilded. I believe it was my last subscription box, and it’s just I don’t know, I think it’s a journaling card as well, probably be six or pocket-size, and then I just have some bows here from Nicki plus three.

I have some bows here that are from panda bird design I’ll try to remember to leave all the links below of everything that I got, and these are just, I think, their date separators pay separators. I forgot what you call them. You just separate like you’re on your date. They separate or I believe, and then these are some that I made. I think they were too thick. I might take those out and then I got these from Brooklyn grace coat last year, but they was so hard to get off the paper and I haven’t tore him up, and so when I ordered my inserts from her last year.

This is what I got. I’m going to retire these two, and so I’m going to put okay moving a wall. This is a piece of acetate that I cut for this planner got this from either Michaels or Joanne’s. I have some sticky notes on here. I had more, but they was just coming off so whatever, and then I made this dashboard a laminating paper and a simply gilded. Although the king in a subscription – and I just put it down in the lamination and waiting – we’ve danced for it and then this planner will have probably more colors than in my eight-five business, but this is from digital.

I love Starbucks yeah. I love it. I love coffee, and so when I saw that this was available, I was like yes, I got ta pretend something. So this is what I have here, and this is a dashboard that came with the planner it needs to be, but it came with the planner, so clear, divider and then this is a download from Pinterest that I did and then here’s another download from Pinterest that I did also I’ll try leave my Pinterest below and I have a whole Planning section on there.

Some things were saved to there. Some things are not and I’ll just leave that below and then here is some vellum. Is this like a pink or peach? It looks a little yellowish, but I just use that on the top of my class and then here on my year at a glance, I took some guts from planner Kate and just put all the important birthdays and pretty much and then, of course, my anniversary and Then like, if there’s a vacation or something I’ll, add another dot, but so far oh I do have a vacation.

I need to edit that I’ll do that later and then here we go you guys. So this is cardstock that I purchased from Walmart and I just turned them into the writers and then put all my months here and then I just throw some clear on paper. But the dates I’m feeling with the months on it and then just add them to the chance, and I really thought I was going to need to have them closer together. And then I really didn’t so.

I kind of space them out a little bit more, but nonetheless, here they are, and this is January this is my monthly view for January and that I have just a little flag here from cloths and paper, I’m just like a transparent flag and that’s just to Let me know what month I’m on and then I have this kind of color coded the black represents the bills. These are things like. Maybe I paid I’m here are my pity.

The little saying these little flag quarter, flags here corner. Excuse me transparent stickers from thoughts and paper. This is from this. Guy is from planner Kate. These are the ones that I made the black dots and just kind of color cosine. I was scrolling on and what was paid or what needs to be done or what’s going on, these coils represent my Etsy pay days, and then I just put this flag here to know what month I’m going.

I can just go right to it so I’ll move. It from month to month so these are the rest of the months and these are the dashboards and what they look like and then here’s a dashboard. I made myself out of a school plastic file from Walmart when it was school time they had. These sounds with the phone proto valves, your folder excuse me these black plastic folders and they were like 50 something cent and I think I bought like two or three.

I actually bought more. I put one in purple and I decided to cut them up and put my that was my plan for them anyway, and to put them in my micro. So I should have got more, but I did find this paper and this material excuse me as staples I’ll. Probably go back and get it, but I’m not. I think I can hold out to school time again to meetings or dashboards, and then I just have this coffee die-cut here that I’ve downloaded probably on Pinterest and a little hard paper clip here that came in to order.

And then I just stuck a little bow here from I’m simply gilded back here and then here’s a little card thing I made to stick in here and, as you can see, most of my sticking hosts came off, but it’s okay. I still have these, so I just stuck these here. Let’s see if I can show you so what I did was. I ordered College off of Amazon I’ll leave the link below they are just these clear acetate, they’re, not even acetate.

I don’t even know what this is, but they’re like business card size and I just stuck some sticky tape. Whatever sticky notes, sticky Flags on there and then stuck it in there, it’s a little tight fit. That’s why I can’t really get it out. So when I get it out and definitely need it, I also made. Let me show you guys: you’ll see that in the back, what else I’d get with them and I bought so many because I want to use some pants like when I do freebies and things just to add.

Maybe two orders or giveaways different things like that and then so over here are some more transparent Flags, some sticky Flags here and this right pocket came with this planner yeah. When I say I got the best deal ever and I’m not even going to begin to tell you what I was going to sell it for, but um this, these little sticky post-it notes. I got they’re like transparent and then they have a little bit of white on them and you’ll see later how I use them, but also I like to use them for notes, and so it came in a pack of two.

Let me see if I have the original package – and this is what the package looks like, so it comes like this so and I think they have my Walmart, but I got mine out of staples. Oh, let me show you the ones I got at a Walmart and I just like to keep them here, so I can make notes like sticky notes with these, so that goes there. This is a die cut that I printed last year that was in here. That was just sitting here and I just left it, and here are the sticky notes that I got from Walmart and you can use these to like hold the page same thing here, put it here, so that you know to get to something.

The only thing is that I didn’t like about this. Someone has suggested these where they said they took. I guess the color part off, but you can’t take that color for long and so the color part doesn’t come off, but it’s great. If you just want to put just a tiny bit of color and get to a certain section, you can flip right there, and so I love this little pocket. I actually want more, but I don’t know if I’ll be ordering from the final sex sake I’ll see.

Who else has these, and then I have a piece of vellum here from digital dash that I appointed myself from that if you’re not signed up for digital sign up for it. So here is that cardstock that I made into a dashboard – and this is basically my weekly this is – I wanted to just like – get rid of this one and keep this one. But I really like the feel of this and it’s been in here and I just decided to keep it so this is pretty much going into my weekly and then here is my weekly and another Ollie clip, and then this was last week how I planned last Week, I’m just again not a lot of stickers, just basically pen to paper and a highlighter, so I just use this to close off that week.

So now that’s like this is this week, and so I still have some more planning to do, and I just use some washi tape, my few tape to mark off the decimide day off and then for a little touch of color. I added this little sticker here from Miss applause and then this little paper clip. I had him in my shop. I was going to sell them at one point, but I decided since reason as freebies. The ones that have coming now are black and I just wanted to try the black ones, and this is too cute.

Oh, this insert came from Brooklyn grace Co. I downloaded these. That’s what I like the matter of sight when I first started. Trying to minimal plan is that I could just download and so pretty much all my inserts come from Brooklyn grease and they’re never going into my daily and daily. Basically, is me kind of doing my schedule daily task priorities, things like that, and then here is a laminating pocket that I made myself with just a lot clip to keep it close, and then my mom gave me a Michaels gift card for Christmas Michaels.

These are the little tiny dots that I made myself oh and some transparent paper. These are the no spin stickers from my shop and then I took these stickers from my happy planner. I think this is from the mini and just keep them in here. So I can get my calendar this back here this undated, and then this came from thread of cake. This is how it came and I just cut it. It came like that, and I just cut it because these only the colors that I want to use at the present time – and I want to keep in mind this planner here.

Ok, so again, this is my little laminating pocket and then it goes into my daily, and this is just where I write daily tasks. Things I need to do. I’ve only done one day is undated, which is perfect. For me. I don’t have a few. We only have a few here because I’m going to replant some of these – and I just try to stick to these when it’s just dealing things I need to do, and I have a lot going on and then I made this dashboard here from laminating and some Vinyl that I had and then I will sticker of the Louboutin purse I kind of wanted to just represent.

I wanted to kind of be like a window to the next and this pretty much what it looks like and I love it and this divider. I pointed from Pinterest and then this double sided with a lady with some leopard heels and some hands. I got asked in my Instagram when I posted this on Instagram, like how do you search for certain things on Instagram? The best thing I can tell you is put in like illustration, like the girl in the illustration, whatever you want make sure you put it in like illustration or what is the other words clipart and then one thing I’ll lead you to another.

That’s how I found so many things if I looked up girl illustration of Vogue illustration, it just led me to so many different classic things and then here’s another on dashboard that I made from that folder that black folder for Walmart. I had a little bit left over and then I cut it into a dashboard. This is my list section and then here is some more artwork. I got from Pinterest and I just printed out made into a dashboard and then that is well from Pinterest, and this is my list section so here I just have certain lists my grocery, my hair beauty products like what I need grocery like where me Etsy things That I need for that for my business and then this is my budget section again that same folder.

I had it cut on my so I cut it on my silhouette and just made into tabs and these tabs. I tried to line them up so that they all kind of go together. This one should like that, so that way they’re kind of uniform. So this is my budget section. I did these on my Silhouette as well just use some clear, sticky paper and then just go for you get and I ran it through my laser machine and then this is just a piece of leftover vellum from some envelopes.

I was making for co-worker up like this, how it is I just stuck it there to represent the dollars and it’s funny to look at cuz, it’s kind of iridescent, so it looks. Gold in some areas rose. Gold and doing looks perfectly sound like that, and then this is my budget for the month and I’m just trying to keep up on my expenses, and I had mentioned on Instagram, I’m working on my own budget inserts printables.

Just for myself for also me and my coworker are doing some things just for hairstylist, so I will keep you all up on that and then here is another dashboard that I created I’m using Pinterest artwork and that’s her and then here is a dashboard that I Made laminating paper, and then I just set those sticky notes, we’re sticking ups that I showed you guys that’s what this is, and this is my note section like this is a you know.

How like this is my note section, and then I made this note paper from camera, so I don’t have any notes and then this is my inbox section and I took that same sticky, paper and you’re able to write on it. Let me show you guys: I don’t want to waste these things, because I really love these things and I probably could do someone, but you can just lay them on there and do like little notes to yourself and I’m thinking this is the pin that I use Was this pilot, precise v7r T it writes so well on there and you can see now I wouldn’t suggest all right away, and so I didn’t see it smudges.

But if you wait a little bit, it won’t smudge and then you can just write on that and just stick them in your dashboards or you can just stick them on pages, because it’s and then I have this little peach thing here to remind me that this Is my inbox and that I got something in here that I need to get myself attention to you as I do this one here. Let me know what month I’m going and I’m going to make a little cute card for that.

I learned that from Maddie but many plans, and then I had this little dashboard and also white. I just like the colors and she hates all that good stuff, but I couldn’t one so I was going to take it out, see this rips out. We pray and then this is my little inbox I’m I want to do this on black, but I do this on camera and I just left it just as some extra paper and then I mean I can put my little sticky notes, one to your right stuff And then this is my order tracker.

So I leave that in my inbox section that lets me know to give attention to see what hasn’t came. How are you taking something to come and then I have a few of those yeah and then this is the ruler that came with the planner. This planner just came so well equipped, I mean with everything it even had a little world map. It even had the monthly inserts like this, but they just wasn’t the color, and I was looking for so I took those out and then it came with this here, this little plastic envelope that opens on the side here and I just have a drilling Carter.

On top with another printout from Pinterest, then here in the back, I have these from my shop when I had my website and they’re, just some paid amount, whatever sickness I have this clip here, I got from a printer babe at a little planner Meetup, I’m caring. So she had made something clips with that on there and I like it, because it’s just cute – and this is what I did with those clear things I showed you before I made these washes strips this one.

I had already made with the little chopping boards from the Dollar Tree, but when I got these, I just thought these were more sturdy and I’d leave. This blank went in here to cut my washi tape, so I just took some random washi tape that I had. I had this neutral tape and I thought that would go good with the static of my planner and these are the washi tapes that are using this. I just added these like last night, so y’all didn’t see this on my stories because I hadn’t been there yet.

I decided last night to kind of put those in the air and then back here I have a freebie from Miss Moss and I just leave it in there. So when I want to add a little color to the planner and edit her to mine, and then I have this pin here from Michele, absolutely love and I’m going to use this pin to write on that sticky tape and see how I keep doing it. No one is going to merge, so that is the complete flip through of my planner.

Thank you guys so much for reading. I hope you enjoy this slip through I’m in love with this planner. I just can’t believe that last year this will not last you this time, but last year, when I went to use this, I just couldn’t. I didn’t know I guess how to use it. I tried minimum planning last year and I said on my Instagram stories that I think happy planner came out was wrong. Something like that and I got sidetracked and I just never returned to her, not even like we’re putting the orders in, because that’s all that I was doing sprinting disorders in I didn’t really know.

I tried decorating her for me to like her, but I think because I started with the rings and what’s going into a TN, I just don’t want to keep going into rings, but now I’ve been in her everyday. I love it. I love it. I’ll continue to be a decorative functional planner, but I will also be a minimalist planner on my everyday things that need to get done. I don’t feel pressured to sticker my day or show you guys that I’ve decorated for the week I’ll be doing flip through periodically.

In here, so that you can see how my days of God, if you want to see more minimal planning, please let me know in the comment section because I will be happy to again – I’m new to it like. I just think personally, it’s a lot going on in here. There is not that memo, so it’s still not that minimal. But to me it is the minimum, because I don’t have to stick up my mom. I don’t have to stick her my days or my niece, like I said I put a sticker here, but it’s still minimal.

It’s just not a whole like a full box or quarter box at all that this is black and white, and that just works for me because I can play in without feeling guilty that I didn’t show you guys how I planned so again. If you want to see for throughs of my minimal planner or a more consistent basis, let me know so we’ll do like a flip through at the end of the mob or maybe like weekly will just show flip through us.

You know, however, just let me know and as I update her and change things around I’ll, definitely give you guys a flip through of that. But again, if there’s something that you’re interested in, please let me know thank you all so much for reading. If you’d like to see more for myself hit that subscribe, button hit that notification barrel so that you notified your notified whenever I do a blue content again, if you are interested in weekly, sprayer, more planning, budgeting, DIY planners planner related anything planner related.

Amazing Customer Service With Bell Mobility

If you read my Instagram stories anyway, I vlogged a little bit about the fact that the SN that I had was broken and I figured I’d just keep you along for the journey for me trying to get it fixed with Belle. Oh, you know figured if it’s a good experience. That’S sherry! Why not give credit where credit is due, there’s too much negativity in this world and if it turns out to be, you know a bad story.

Well, we’ll just tell the truth and the facts. You know what happened. Oh I’m happy to report, it’s all over and done with, and it was excellent. It’S very very good. Unfortunately, that account, you know no longer is there they can’t hold or made the decision that you know we needed to split, which is okay. I agreed I should be for my own phone, but I still think I want to share this because again, there’s so much negativity out there and that goes for every single telecommunication company.

Everybody there’s always someone that’s mad about something so for once, let’s share good stuff. So there’s my name’s or whatever than now on the 20th of May so this has been a living truth, the 20th of May, and today we are the 13th of June. So I got the phone this one. So when the 20th Maine to the 13th of June, everything affects here’s how the phone came at yeah. I looked good, so the original problem that I sang in for cuz.

It was thunder the one year manufacturer, so we got it an August of last year. So August would be the one year manufacturer that comes with every phone at should I mean if it doesn’t ask? Oh, at least it doesn’t bail anything but when you’re a manufacturer, but it has to be something that you did not do. I was still under that one year manufacturer warranty and I was hiding problems from Lee GetGo.

I had called back in January and the whole thing was that call have to wipe your device in the bluff. That experience wasn’t necessarily that good that I could go through like tech support and he made it kind of impossible because he wanted me to like wipe the phone like while he was waiting on a hold and trying to tell him. You know I have to like sync this to my old phone, because I won’t lose my data that was frustrating.

However, they still open the ticket and I just never sent the phone in cuz. I was like you know what it’s not worth the hassle to not do anything, but I’m not like the beginning of May mid-may. I realized that no long, not only did I have like processor issues, there was a screen problem like it lagged from when I would touch no, I think, you’re trying to type in something and then there’s nothing at all this and like 16 letters would show up And there’s also the fact that the imprint of this keyboard was brought into the screen.

So if anybody out there is younger than like me, so if you’re under than like 35, you probably don’t understand what like burnt into a screen means. But a long time ago, when our computer screens were the CRT things, the big hunk of things, there was a reason why screen savers exist now screen savers are kind of just there to look pretty because that cousin it was a projection and long story short.

You can burn the image into the screen, so if you always had it on like you know that hello or Windows 3.1 screen, because I’m going that far um, it would burn the imprint in there. That happened on this phone, which is not supposed to happen on these LCD displays so by then I was like well, I may as well send it in so I started blogging in I I had to started going along with it, so it was good. I mean this account is you know my Mullins account and I’ve been lucky enough.

This whole time that I’m sharing the account with her and there had to be for myself, though um she did. That was really nice. That’S over other story um, but at the time I was still on the account. So I was always the one that dealt with everything and I don’t know if it helped or not, but our account that we’ve had we’ve had it for eighteen years. That’S a really long time to have it an account and because it was grandfather because it was grandfathered in from alliant to della Lian to everything in the middle.

We ain’t going to be in a small business account because that’s how they could only give you shared lines way back when again and we just kept up with them. Um the sort of over the years has not been bad. It’S called you know, and I was also one that called I’m the one that that made all the deals and figured everything out and whatnot. You know now I have my own phone. I was told that I had to get my own, so I did.

I went with Rogers, not that II mean I just didn’t, have a choice: cuz. Yes, there. It’S a penalty that comes with this phone because it’s the contract. Is it huh? However, I don’t have credit all right, we’re all aware that you know unfortunately invisibility I had to declare bankruptcy. There was no way than that could keep $ 37,000 car. I didn’t know I couldn’t so. I have no credit. I don’t have any credit.

Therefore, I can’t get this phone in this line, transferred over to Bell and open a brand new account and not leave her with the penalty, because I don’t spread it. I can only count whether I want to or not it’s not going to happen, so I had to go with Rogers because well, I have my home services with them, and I’ve had many services of them for like five years now, mostly because the building that I Live in isn’t wired for fiber.

Ah, you can only get Rodgers in this building and we’re not going to go into which company is better. Oh, what it’s a good! So that’s how I ended up getting you know another phone that had to get through Rogers, because I wanted to get my number all my social media, everything that is linked to everything that I’m trying to do um so for us successfully. That’S the hope it keeps going away, it’s linked to my phone number, so I really need to keep it, but the decision was made that I had to pay my own cell phone.

I had to go down so now that that’s out there, this one’s actually up for sale, you want it and it’s brand new. Now let me tell you why, because again we sent the ticket open on May 20th, and I took about a week and they were really helpful, but they had to do was wait for the back office to close off the other order that had been opened in January and then send me the box for me to send the phone in, and there was all these legal papers that I had to sign.

That said that you know I’m okay, if I lose any data on on that whatnot because they do have to reset it. However, I had already factory reset from the s7. Anyway, I’ve moved everything over to the old s6 and whatever complicated I know, and this time it was easy to deal with them. No, I thought it wasn’t in the past. Sometimes it is, you know sometimes just depends on the agent and this time you might have to do with me.

I hadn’t done the DBT classes. I’Ve learned so much I’m going to communicate on how not to get mad and all sorts of things that I handle things. So maybe it was partly the fact that I’m better and not angry or whatnot you I they did understand that I knew it. It was talking about when I told them that, like hey, I love trying for my thing, so they do listen and they sent me the paper and they had all the things a little square.

That said, like all the things that were – and I added in the park that the screen image was burnt in because that wasn’t in there but I hand, wrote it in and signed it and again you just said that lose any data. I can’t keep bail. You know responsible, which is fine. I knew that already, and it said that I had to you know if there was a pin or a password I’d had to provide what it was, but that wasn’t the case because I had factory reset.

I was actually pretty easy to do with an amazing question so off it went. I had a Weedle number now if anybody looks at the articles because I’ll, I might add them somewheres in here, because that was a day where I had to go out on my own okay, that was when the whole fiasco has been that no longer the support Worker everything’s kind of got a do everything on your own and yeah outside is heard. Okay, I’m good in my apartment, I’m good at my job cuz, I’m used to it.

The outside world is scary, super scary. It’S called agoraphobia, but I’m working on it. Okay, I’ve logged my day out cuz. I had to go mail it. The mail counter happens to be so V’s of the road. It’S really not that far. For me, it looks like whatever it got done. I survived I’m still here. All my body pieces are still attached, I’m good. It was a great experience. Do it again someday not right now say it was tough, so send that back in I had a tracking number, which I was able to track and also Bell actually sent me emails.

They sent me an email telling me that they hadn’t received it and, as per our conversation that I had with the agent, I’m not going to say her name. But I have her name here and I think after this I’m going to call Bell – and you know your rikuo’s – why not I’ve worked in call centers, and sometimes it’s great to hear that you know he helped someone instead of how was being yelled at so inner Conversation, it came the fact that some of these things that weren’t working could possibly be my fault and if they have to fix something, sometimes they do, but then the bill the charge for it automatically ends up on the bill.

Now I had a problem with that. Already, if we were at the point where you know my mother’s had had to pay for my own phone bill or whatnot, but I still respect the fact that this is my mom’s account and it’s her credit. So we had an agreement that they were not going to fix anything that needed money that needed a charge before they were going to ask permission for two reasons. One I mean again it’s my mom’s account it’s up to her.

If she wants to pay that if she can or if she can’t you know with bets, I shouldn’t you know, I have the right to speak in a decisions, but I’m not a jerk. So the second thing is: is that if they tell me certain things are broken, maybe I can just fix it myself, because I know how turned out I didn’t have to. They took care of everything. So this is a phone, I got it back and it comes in this cute little package, I think, is great: what do they replace on it? They replaced the processor because there was a processor issue.

They replaced the whole LCD screen and the home button, because the home button kept sticking and whatnot, so they replaced. All of that. Did it cost me anything nope, nothing. The phone is here it’s in perfect working condition, and I think I haven’t tried it. It put a sim card in because you know it’s for sale now. Could I have my own thing, but my whole point is that I dealt with bail, and this was what I was going to talk about.

Was that was it going to be an easy thing to do the words they’re going to need hoops to jump through? Was I going to have to prove that I didn’t damage it myself or whatnot? No, none of that happened nothing. I told them what was wrong. They said all right, you know, send it in now. The reason why this had send it in, however, it took a little bit of explanation because were in the Maritimes and we don’t have actual Bell Bell stores like Bell link.

We have Bell Aliant and that’s not the same thing, because it was an actual Bell. Bell store, I could have just walked in with my phone handed it to them and gotten a second link. You know, so there was a little bit of Hoops, but they weren’t difficult to jump her. They worked with me and I walked with them. So again they sent me the box for me to send everything I didn’t even pay shipping or anything.

I find all those papers put the phone in sent it in the mail and not even a month later I got the phone back completely fixed, no turn whatsoever, and that’s it. So my conclusion – yes am I dealing with Bell over the fact that the phone that you know we purchased from them was defected. They fixed it for free and the whole process was less than painful. It was extremely easy, um give or take I mean the beginning part I mean one of the technicians were a little bit snotty, but whatever okay there’s like 4,000 employees, three of them I mean I ain’t mad at that all right and even over the whole.

Other years of the eighteen years again, I was always the one that would call him, for you know: billing mistakes, billing mistakes, um data issues and you know upgrades and whatnot. I was always the one that dealt with that and over all those years I mean every once in a while. I did have to escalate to supervise him only because I knew I could get better and did I he worked for Bell for a long time.

Yes, am I trained in law, Realty and all four lines of business? Yes, so I did know that you could get more. That was a little bit of my thing, however, with an 18 year old accounts, they’ll give you the moon in the stars. I mean within parameters, but they’ll bend over backwards and they did this whole time. So I want to thank all of them. Thank everybody that was involved. It was a good experience to get the phone fixed overall of the whole time that we’ve been dealing with Belle.

It was frustrating a little bit. Okay, we did have her her things when it came to upgrading, but again that just has to do with the fact that were in the bird new brunswick, where we don’t have Belle Belle, we have Bell Aliant. So sometimes you know things kind of get. However, I do have to say that, however – and this is really really important to say that yes, we did have really good customer service over the years, because every time that we would upgrade – and this upgrade was done with foam – they actually nailed the them to me And my mom in the mail, but every time before that we always went to an actual Belle Stewart, operand um.

I would call we get everything you know, figure it out playing wise phone wise over the phone and then he’d show up to pick them up and then that’s where the problems always happened, and there was always like this $ 30 activation fee. That doesn’t need to be charged. That’S just the store charging you the speed for their tie. Insert I don’t know. However, this is one see me a good customer service because I would call them them you like a look.

Why would have to pay for that? They would always put it. The moral of the story is yes. My experience with Belle was great. Am I sad I’m no longer a cell customer of Belle actually yeah? I am, I really did like them and northern that we’re not going to get into it, because it’s not the point, but the experience itself over the years was mostly positive. I mean nothing’s perfect, but for the most part it was good and when I recommend Belle yeah, I would definitely um promo, jumping back and forth that it can give you.

You know: savings in the short-term, but after 18 years of being with the same company. That’S when they start really really giving you awesome, deals and awesome prices because they are rewarding you, for you know, being a long-term customer for not creating. You know bunch of accounts back and forth in or not so just because the grass looks a little bit greener on the other side. You know if it’s just like a ten dollar difference between two companies like stick with the one you have.

I mean unless there’s problems, you’re not happy, but if you’re meteor awkwardly happy with your your servants and your provider stay there, the longer you stay, the more they’re going to give you. This is from from this is an insider tip. Actually, I worked at loyalty so when I wanted to give people credits because I have the right to – I would look, how long have they been a customer? Have they paid them bill one time everyone do they complain all the time.

Do they ask for credits all the time if all those things weren’t there, I get the moon. The stars like, I have a lot of credit that are given some people get a lot so overall, they’re fixing the phone with bail with a good, really good experience. Like five stars out of five, my overall experience with Bella for the past 18 years, I give it a four out of five stars. As for my experience with Rogers, I don’t know we’re just starting on the cellphone journey with Rogers, I have my home phone, my home phone.

You know everything else with them, maybe I’ll get into that. I don’t know if you’re interested in knowing what my experience of all that is leave me a comment. Let me know because I I’ll tell it, I don’t have a problem. So I’m necessarily oh man, so that’s it. I promised all of you that I would let you know if their journey was difficult or heard or what it was it wasn’t. It was easy. I recommend it no hard feelings, I’m sad, I’m gone but license on.

I got to do what I can do. That’S all I could afford so anybody looking for an SM, it’s brand-new, they just fix it um, but yeah. So thank you very much and everybody
