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.

So it doesn’t get like also so kiddie Wampus on there, but anyway I’m going to stop blabbing now but yeah. I just wanted to kind of show you guys what I was working on for this year. Hope you guys enjoyed the article if you have any great tips or ideas of how to kind of just set up your monthly budgets for the following year. Please, let me know in the comments below I love to always hear the feedback from you guys.

I will leave links below to all the products that I used and thank you guys so much for reading. If you liked the article make sure to give it a thumbs up – and you can subscribe for more – and I will see you guys in the next article bye guys

Planner Sticker Binder | Organize With Me | #CoffeeBreakPlanner

I know that sounds really grand um, but that’s how it’s going to be today, I’m in a random kind of mode, but today I wanted to show you guys how I’m going to transform some sticker storage. So these are the things I’m going to be using. These are the post-it tabs everything’s going to be linked below that.

I can find for you guys, so I’m going to use these post-it tabs, I’m going to you’d, be using my pilot ultrafine, a permanent marker, a scissors. This is a binder. I’ve actually had for a while. It’s a, I think, it’s a two inch binder. If I remember right, maybe a two and a half inch binder can’t remember, but it’s from Avery I bottom on Amazon. I actually have two of them and I’m going to link it down below for you guys, and then this is a pouch that I’ve had for quite a while.

This is an Erin Condren pouch and I don’t believe they make this pattern any longer, but I had them put coffee break planner on here, and this is all my stickers from Khafre, brick planner. So here’s my problem guys. I have an issue clearly, so I need to have some different storage, because every time I go in that pouch, I’m thumbing through things, and I can’t find what I’m looking for and it’s becoming an issue.

So I was thinking about putting like adhesive strips on the side and doing all that, but it just seemed like I go through these so dang fast that I just don’t want to do that. So what I’m going to do is I bought these on Amazon and they came in a big bundle. You can buy several of these and they are called the binder pocket. Let me take them out of this thing and they come in a variety of colors. You can’t pick your colors.

I wish I could have picked all the colors, but I can’t so I got a bundle of I think it was like 28 or 24 or something there’s a bunch of bundles. You can get so there’s a bunch of different colors. So what I’m going to do is I’m going to put in all of my categories so like these are to me are, like you know all my half boxes I’ll put those in there and I will make a little label and I’ll throw it up at the Top because you can’t always see the side and the nice thing about these little binder pockets, they are for the smaller mini binders and it has velcro on it, which is awesome.

So you know it’s pretty sturdy considering but yeah. That’s that’s what I’m going to do today, also in preparation for this amazing event. There is a little side window on the ear, and I just made this – I Katherine doesn’t sell these. This is just a fun little thing I have and I just wrote, sticker swag on it. I just printed this out so I’ll know what the heck is going on when I grabbed for my binders.

My other binder I have that’s just like this – is Christian designs, and I made that one as well myself. So the Christian designs binders that she sells are a whole lot smaller than what my like collection is so, but I can now fit all my Christian designs. Stuff into one binder so yeah anyway, I’m going to kind of jam this down a little bit. So I know it’s not like perfect, but I don’t care, I think it.

I think it looks cute and then to show you for scale here is my Christian designs binder this one still says functional stickers, but it’s all the stickers. Now I used to have two of these, which is why I have this older one. This is how I did my Chrissy and designs binder. If you guys are interested in how I did this, I will leave a link in a card up above and I’ll leave it down below as well. I did this several years ago, but like this is how dang thick it is in there, but I have all my categories like all written out and I think let me see if these peel off nicely.

These might not peel afro nice ooh ooh. I think they will. Okay, that’s satisfying. You know how you peel things off and then it’s like there’s like crap stuck on there like adhesive and it’s like. Oh that’s, going to suck all right and I’ve got my little post-it guys. I don’t know. Oh aw, there’s 24 total tabs. I think I should be just fine. I’ve actually got all of my categories written down off camera yeah.

Why don’t we speed this up a little bit and have me just do it and then I will share at the end. All of my organization, so you guys don’t have to read like a 45-minute article, because nobody wants to read that and hopefully I can find some good music for you guys to listen to right now, all right. So I am all done and I wanted to share with you guys what I did so I just variegated all of the colors in here.

So I just you know grabbed. You know it was the blue, the turquoise, purple, pink and then the gray and then like so on and so forth, because there wasn’t enough of just one color or two colors to actually like you know, make it look pretty. So my thought was, let’s do the functional things in the front and then the more decorative like icons and things in the back, and that’s actually how I have my Christian designs binder set up and I really like it.

So the ones that I reach for the most our event stickers. So these are all the event stickers that I currently have through coffee break planner. If you’re interested in anything from coffee, black wet little roll a little coffee break planner, there is going to be a link down below, as well as a little coupon code for y’all, but on the scallop boxes are my absolute favorite in the event stickers and then Over here I got half boxes, so I’ve got a bunch of half boxes from her currently and lots of different patterns and designs, so that is in there next off this one’s kind of a hodge podge.

To be honest, but, like I know what’s in here so I have some, I have one sheet of full boxes. Currently I’ve got my transparent dots in here too. I think I need to just like real able that, but whatever I know it’s in there, so yeah that’ll be in there cuz, the transparent dots to me are super functional. I have flags, and these are all different. Some are really decorative like in the front and then we’ve got some like more functional ones in the back and then I’ve got I put these in there they’re like little.

I don’t know they’re like little cloud kind of looking things, but I don’t know I I understand it. I understand my method to my mayhem, y’all, alright and then over here we’ve got all the scripted words you’d ever want, I’m pretty sure I have almost all of them from her but yeah and I even have like this ones like a gold foil, which is really Pretty love those so then, after the scripted words is kind of when, like things get a little bit more like iconi.

So this one is my category of work, so I’ve got some little calculators and then I’ve got lots of different things that you would possibly use for work, so very cool and then the next one is home and then in the home category of just lots of You know different things, you know garbage and car and house and all that good stuff. Next off we’ve got food just pretty self-explanatory, but you know lots of different food icons and different things like that.

Little little mugs and then the next category is animal. I would have put dog, but I have a sheet, and I think I ordered this for like a specific thing and I’ve like was like. Oh, I didn’t know that house, I have a sheet of cows. I think I you was going to use them for something, and I just didn’t so I’m going to keep him in there, though I might use them at some point. You guys, maybe when I like need to go, buy some milk or something, and then I have a sports category.

I know alert the authorities right. So there’s this like little little football things and I do actually read NASCAR. So I do have this going on and then there’s another football situation, so yeah yeah and then I’ve got these health warnings. There’s only a couple in here, but I’ve got like you know like little pads and then a bunch of a lot of these Wow. Okay, a bunch of these like little stethoscope stickers and then my last category is seasonal, so this is basically anything that has a season so like this is like a fare.

Themed. We’ve got. You know some like s’mores right here. I’ve got like school buses like that. I don’t know to me: school buses is like seasonal because I don’t have kids, but you know just something: that’s a little bit more seasonal, so yeah and I’ve got like you know like half boxes, but they’re wintery Christmasy themed. So that’s all going in here. So I used quite a few of these, so really what’s making it super thick.

Is this velcro, but I can close it just fine. This is what it now looks like. So it is a little thicker, but I’m totally fine with that thing. That’s making it thick, like I said, is the velcro, but I’m totally down with it. This is what it looks like from the top, which is like extra freakin cute. I love this. I think this looks really nice and then from the side. I can see all of my categories and where I’m going, I was thinking about putting it up at the top, like my Christian designs binders, but I thought that the side actually worked a little bit better for what I’m utilizing it for so I don’t know.

I kind of I’m kind of digging at y’all, I’m kind of digging it so anyways. I think that’s going to be it for me today. If you all have any questions feel free to post them down below. I will link all of the things that I used or talked about today. If you organize your stickers in any way, let me know I know I just did a big overhaul of all my other stickers and I will link that article down below, as well as up in a card for y’all too, but with my coffee break planner stickers.

I just had to do something a little bit different. The collection was so big and so massive that I just really wanted it all in one place, as always. Thank you guys so much for reading. I really appreciate you guys hanging out with me, for a little bit today feel free to give the article a thumbs up and subscribe if you like this kind of content.

Sticker Collection | Coffee Break Planner

This is the binder whoa. Sorry about that. This is a binder I have been using for quite a while. It is a very thick binder that I got on Amazon. I think it’s an Avery binder. I will link it down below if y’all are interested but anyways. I did a article not too long ago, showing my sticker organization as to how I put this together.

I will link that article up in a cart if y’all are interested but anyways. I have my little coffee break planner thing that I made over here and yeah. So, let’s just like get right into it. I do have these categorized by like category obviously a categorized by category way to go Emily way to use the word. I’m just a wordsmith today, but I have lots of different things to share. The first category is my event: category, which is my favorite category, because it’s got my favorite stickers in there so yeah.

So, let’s just kind of like flip through it and then we’ll just go from there. She’s got lots of really great scalloped box stickers, which are one of my favorite things. I’ve got a lot of duplicates just FYI and then I’ve got some things as well. So I know that some of her stickers are formatted for specific planners, and then some of them are just like the way that they are so sometimes when you go onto her Etsy shop.

It’ll, like give a little drop-down and say, like you, know, ask what planner ur like what orientation of a planner that you’re using and all that good stuff, so yeah. But I just like love her stuff, it’s so nice. It sounds like holographic, it’s really cool yeah and then this one, this one’s silver. So these are like assam. My favourite stickers are these little scalloped ones and she just released new colors.

I did flip through a couple of the new colors, but there’s some new ones for fall so feel free to go check that out. If you interested, but yes, it’s my first category just because it makes the most sense and then I’ve got half boxes right here. Oh, I only have two left on this one. I want to use this one up, so I’ve got some half boxes. I got some like military-inspired ones and then I’ve got a bunch of other ones which these are really nice as well, more military but yeah.

I just you know I just love her stuff, so much and this type of sticker is just like, so my jam like it’s just ah, you know I love a good. I love a good half box, a good functional anything, and I like that. Some of these have like a little bit of something to them without being like overly, you know, aggressive or whatever. These are my full boxes, but I only have one sheet of full boxes, so the full boxes is kind of, like my catch-all for other weird things.

They’re, not weird they’re, just different, you know, and I don’t have a place for them so when Katherine sends out orders, at least in my orders. She’s always put in these really cute little samplers, which is kind of Awesome, and then also I have a bunch of transparent dots, so I’ve got them in some of the colors. So this is the green and then I also have like some of the rainbow ones. I have some of the red ones and more of the rainbows as well, but I absolutely love the transparent dots, oh and I should say well now: okay, let’s get into the flag story all over the paper that she uses is matte, which I love a good Matte paper, so here’s all the flags that I’m showing today um.

But I love the matte paper. I don’t know what it is, but it’s like something about the way that the pen or the marker or whatever you’re, using like kind of soaks into the paper, and I know it’s like satisfying to me – it’s like very satisfying. Actually, what is going to say is that she uses matte removable paper. So if you mess up – and you like – lay it down on your planner – it’s okay, because you can easily like lift it up, which is kind of Awesome.

So, anyway, here’s all her scripted words that I have she’s got several more scripted words that, like don’t pertain to me in my life, so I don’t order those ones, but I’ve gone through several of these. Like look, I’m almost done with these work ones. I’ve used a bunch on this sheet too, like I forget what I have sometimes it’s just kind of the nature of the beast: with look having a youtube blog that does planning now you kind of forget what you have, and I didn’t have these like really nicely Organized for a long long time, so it took me quite a while to figure out a system that you know worked for me.

But since I did this, I’ve just been like loving the way that it all looks. And then I’ve got my work stickers, which is pretty awesome. I’ve got lots of fun things in here, so I’ve got some desks more desks. There’s lots of like versions of desks cute little calculators, we’ve gotten like a couple of those which is awesome and it’s getting like really really cold in Minnesota now. So this is kind of how I feel right now as like a little snowman, even though it’s not snowing yet.

I shouldn’t have said that s word now: it’s going to start snowing, darn, it okay and then yeah. I got lots of different, really fun ones. This reminds me I need to start. My office is almost actually redone, you guys it’s it’s like really getting there, but I need to do a file organization on all my files, but I’m going to do a article about it too, because I know you guys have been asking for that.

I just haven’t. Had like a good opportunity to do it and I actually bought a file cabinet from Ikea. So I’m very very excited about that to share like how I’m going to be organizing it and it’s like three full drawers of emptiness right now, but that’s very exciting. For me to get organized and I haven’t gone through stuff in like a really long time, so I know you guys think I’m super organized, but sometimes the fge is not as organized as you think she is so.

I think we’re all like that. But anyway, these are one of my new favorite stickers too. They just came out or she just came out with these not too long ago. Maybe a couple months back and it’s like a little shelf that has planners and then it has like a little pen cup that says CBP on it, which is really cute for coffee break planner, and I think this is so nice. If you want to like indicate like planning time or like a meet-up or something just really really stinking cute, so that’s my work category here is my home category.

So, basically, anything that has to do with the house so laundry, which I have to do laundry I’m going to do laundry tomorrow, um. I also have these like road trip. Looking ones. I’ve got some trash cans and musical notes. More laundry. I’ve got some like shopping bags. These are like little baby laundry’s like look at these, oh they’re, so cute right, that’s really cute. Yes, she’s got a couple different sizes of things so and then I also have these really cute makeup brush like cleaning things and then more trash things, some gifts more trash.

I love a good trash guys. I’d love a good trash. I also have some beds for like when you want to like change your sheets or like redo your bedding or whatever. These home stickers are like one of my favorite things, they’re so flippin and cute, and then these are awesome as well. These cute little shelves and then the really fun thing is. You can put something like inside of the picture frame if you want, if you want to like draw a little something which is really really cute, and she put in some of these, so you can see like it’s like doyle, like my dogs like silhouette, and then She put my logo and the other ones which are super stinkin cute, Oh see, I used a bunch of the house once already and these are the clean me little brushes again and then also some trash ones ooh in the plant stickers, oh and then I also Have these really cute little books, if you guys have been following me for a while, I have some like really amazing news.

So if you guys read my blog, this will make a lot more sense, so my mom actually just left today, like the day, I’m filming this. She just left to go back to Florida, but every year, like my mom and dad’s summer in Minnesota, and then they have their full-time residents in Florida, but this year she got rid of the damn plant, I’m so excited. I do not know how to take care of the plan. It’s so exciting to me.

Oh I’m excited so I probably won’t be using those plant things anytime soon, but I just wanted to let you know I had them still all right. So this is my food category. These are one of my favorite things, these little like market boxes like oh they’re, so cute, and then I’ve got some like little paper bags for like bringing lunch to work and stuff. I’ve also got these cute little cutlery wands. Oh, I’ve got more of these guys more cutlery.

More of these kind see I they’re my favorite there’s really cute little food trucks, which I wish I lived or like worked really close to a place. I had food trucks because I think food trucks are kind of awesome, so but yeah, and then these cute little crock pots, which are kind of fun. I don’t do like a ton of crock pot things I feel like I should. I need to like go on. Pinterest or something, and then I’ve got these cute little like coffee guys, which sometimes I like go to a coffee place or something to like, hang out with a friend or just like, go there, while my like oils being changed in my car or something I mean, I don’t drink coffee cuz, I can’t handle it, but you know I’ll get like a smoothie or like a tea or something or just have something else, and then these are really cute little mugs that have like a little colorful insides.

You know if you want to denote anything like that. Alright and then my next category is animals, so we’ve got like little paw prints for like your little kitty or your puppy or whoever these are really cute. They are like little stethoscopes and inside, like the little turn of the stethoscope, is a little paw print as well, and then I have these really random cows, and I think I ordered them for something that I like can’t remember for the life of me.

What I ordered them for so they’re, just in the air, I cannot recall um, but she’s got a lot of really fun stuff on her website. I love them. I think they’re great, but I’m like what did I? What was I going to use that for, and I think I forgot – I don’t know – uh previous Emily – I don’t know what was going on with her here. Is my sports categories or like athletics categories, so I’ve got a bunch of tennis shoes.

I also have a bunch of little like itty-bitty footballs, and then here I have some of their racetrack stuff, which is like more NASCAR inspired. I am into NASCAR. I haven’t readed it in a really long time because my favorite dry driver Dale jr., he retired this past year, so I haven’t really been like catching up with it. This year is like, I think, he retired at the end of 2016 – oh no, sorry, 2017, and so this year I just haven’t been into it, but I feel like I need to read it more, but anyway more footballs and then I also have.

I think I have a full collection, yeah of the race stickers and then more footballs, and you probably wondering why do you have so many footballs? And I think I was going to do something in my planner and then I forget, I don’t know I forget a lot of things, your guy, but now I have them. So if something comes up where I’m at a sporting event, I can put them in all right and then the next category is health.

So I have these little really cute little like pads that have like a little heart in them to like track your cycle, and then these are just kind of similar to the dog ones or the cat ones like the little vet ones. So you have like a little stethoscope, but then this has like the little cross in it, so I’ve actually gone through a couple of sheets of these, and I have oh, I have. I have several of them: okay, cool, but I have gone through a few sheets of these, so yeah, but I love those they’re nice I mean if you’re sick, it sucks being sick anyway is a, but it is nice when you can actually put something.

That’s really cute in your planner oops, alright and then these are the seasonal ones that I have of hers. So it’s like seasons and other like random things in here. So I have a bunch of these like carnival ones which to me is seasonal, because it just reminds me of a State Fair. I also have these little trees, which are super cute. You could use them really for anything, but I just thought that they would be good in the seasonal.

Also, these s’mores and campfires to me is seasonal. I don’t, but it just it just works with me. Also, these little banners kind of remind me of birthday banners. So that’s why it’s in the seasonal and then the little school bus is also a seasonal to me, because that’s how my brain works and yeah. So, let’s put those to the side. I’ve got these really cute little full boxes that are, you know, kind of more fall themed.

These are more summery themed with like little sailboats and things like that, and then these I think she came out with last year yeah. I think these two she came out with last year, which are really cute. I still haven’t used them. I just haven’t found like a good spread to use them in, but they’re like these little vintage houses and like they’re kind of like little washy strips, which is really cute, and then I also have these really cute little date covers and st.

Patrick’s boxes holiday boxes. This is like a new holiday set that she has for this year. I don’t know, maybe it’s new to me, but I love the muted colors. I think it’s so pretty, but yeah be like perfect, for you know if you want to like decorate or or like when you’re decorating, to be like Oh decorate, the house – or I don’t know whatever – and this is like totally me – baby, it’s cold outside yep.

That’s kind of how Minnesota is and then oh here’s another little collection that she has for this. I don’t know if it’s this year that she came up with this or maybe it’s left over from last year. I don’t know, but it’s really cute, but it’s like so me. I like love this little one that says Happy Holidays right there, that’s, like kind of my aesthetic and my jam’ are like these colors. So that was really nice and then I love these ones and this so stinkin cute and then also she’s got this other one in the bigger one that just as Happy Holidays with the tree, which I think is really nice.

I mean I like all of them, but you know if you want to be a little bit more neutral. That is, you know of a way to do it. Alright, so those are put back so yeah. I have seasonal health, sports, animal food, poem, work, script, words, flags, full boxes, and then I have my like miscellaneous in there. My half boxes and event stick.

Plan With Me | February 18th – 24th | #ECLifePlanner

Today we were working on Monday, a February 18 through a Sunday, a February 24. It’s been a really long time since I filmed a article, it’s actually been a month since I filmed the article there’s no real reason. I just wasn’t really feeling like inspired and motivated. So anyway, I wanted to show you guys I did do some planning without y’all.

Sorry, and so this workweek was kind of crazy, so this is January 28th through a February 3rd, and I worked from home for four days because it was just like nasty, so I did do this, so that was good right and then also this week. I put in as well and yeah like the way it turned out, and I don’t know I just I really enjoyed doing this without the camera. If that makes sense like it just didn’t, feel the pressure to be on not that I really feel the pressure to be on, but just you know when you’re not feeling motivated, and you just want to just do it – you just do it so anyways, and this Was the week of Valentine’s Day? This is all I did so we’re just going to leave it like that.

So anyway, this week is we’re going to get into Oh before I start I like to share to my new viewers. If you’re new here hi, I use an Erin Condren monthly deluxe planner in the hourly layout in the colorful, and I have a gold coil. I have the luxe cover and I put my blog initials on there on the cover and then also this is just a patch like it’s an adhesive patch. So yeah, that’s that’s what I that’s what I do so alright, let’s get into the actual decorative planning.

So this week was, I had another snow day. It’s just like the snow. Won’t stop y’all it just it’s like can’t. Stop won’t stop. I don’t know what to do what the deal is so anyway. I am so over this snow. Just it needs to just stop already and today, when I’m filming this, it’s actually snowing pretty bad in the South Metro. I live in Minnesota. If you guys don’t know, it’s snowing, pretty bad in the South Metro and then up towards the north.

Where I live – and I think this is kind of going on everywhere, but it’s like a blowing snow, it’s just kind of annoying. So yeah, that’s uh! That’s what’s shakin here in Minnesota land! I don’t know it’s just it’s very, very strange! So this week I actually got my taxes done, which is you know, oh so fun for everybody right, so that was on Tuesday or sorry Tuesday afternoon, where my taxes and then so Monday night, I did tax prep Wow.

I can’t talk tax prep whoo can’t talk today, um pretty much all night, so yeah. So I do stuff for like my business and then I had to gather some things for personal, and you know all that good stuff, so yeah kinda, fun, yay taxes. All right. I’m just trying to put my work in here and then Thursday. I think yeah Thursday and Friday both stayed until 5:30 oops. I had to get a couple of things accomplished before I left for the day that just tends to happen with the projects.

I do it. Just takes a long time – and it’s like do I wan na just save this for tomorrow and not remember where I am in the process, or do I just want to you know power through for another hour hour and a half whatever, so I tend to be The one that would just power through it and get it done before I leave because I don’t want to miss any of the the steps. Cuz there’s a lot there’s a lot. So here is my beautiful miss.

I could not like, for the life of me, decide on a color of washi today, so I’m like screw it, I’m just going to go gold, and I don’t know what the stickers are going to look like. So I think I’m just going to like open up a binder and see what speaks to me. You know let’s do purple and pink. Why not right all right. So, let’s put in all the work stiff. Oh you know I forget. Sometimes I’m not going to forget today dang it that I have these really cool work stickers, so you don’t have to write work some days you guys some days.

I just can’t figure out my life. Put all the things in. Oh, I just had one of those moments worth like. Did I even turn the camera on that has happened to me more than once? If I do say so myself and if y’all film articles, you probably have felt that same feeling as well. Alright, so I’m going to use my plan to plan sticker Co, little guys that say work from home because that’s what happened that day? Okay, I need my Christian binder, it’s very full at the moment.

It’s always full. What am I talking about? Alright, I need to find my snow day here we go, I think I’m going to have to like order a new one. After all of this, like all the shenanigans of all this snow we’ve been having lately, you think I’ll put that sucker up there. It’s really the only reason I work from home or if I have like an appointment or something in my area, because I work pretty far away, then I will do that, but very rarely alright and then Monday night.

I did text prepping basically for the evening it was very enthralling guys, it’s very enthralling and it like took me all night to get everything done and handled so use this cute little washi. That’s like paper clips cuz. You know the cuteness. I want like a full box or something I don’t know what I want. Let’s see here use one of these okay, here’s my little tax, prep box. There we go, and I figured it would be fun to you know, put some little oops accoutrements on here, because I have them and why not, I feel like I’d like refine just stickers all the time.

Alright, so here’s my little check receipts and yeah like this is how I felt this like once more with love sticker. I don’t know it’s going to focus properly there. It goes that’s exactly how I felt on Monday, alright, and then I put everything in a fancy. Little folder and put it in my purse and then I went to my tax appointment very exciting all right and then on Tuesday at 3:00 I had my tax appointment and it actually went well.

I had asked my tax preparer if she had had clients that were happy or upset when they left her office, and she said unfortunately, she’d had more that were upset. But I didn’t get as much back that I got back last year, but you know that’s because it’s just like some of the new tax laws and things like that so anyway, but you know I was just fine with me and I know like if you all Are Dave, Ramsey people we shouldn’t be getting money back, but it’s so difficult to decipher that when you have a small business as well so anyway, I didn’t have to pay it, so that was that was good.

So anyway, I got my taxes done. I didn’t do anything on Wednesday because it was a snow day Thursday. I went and I picked up my prescription, so I’m going to use these little guys, so I just ran after work a little pick up at Walgreens, alright and I ran to Target after work on Friday. It seems to be like my go-to is just you know, run to target on Friday or do like grocery shopping on Friday, because that just makes life easier.

You know, and then I did laundry Saturday, let’s see what’s going on here. I forget to put in my trash: sometimes there we go Marriott’s to do laundry. Alright, I’m just going to go clean and then like a little house icon, because you know that’s kind of what was going on that day and then I took a nap because you know it’s tired, but it’s just the reality of it. I was tired, y’all someone used one of these little guys.

Let’s see here well use the little mmm. Let’s go. Snooze yes took a little snooze. Oh we’re going to use these as well. These are from Lily Henry, but I’m not sure if her shop is still up or not. If they are, I mean, if any of these shops that I use are open like I will always link them below, for you guys, but um yeah. I have stuff from so long ago and I you know I want to use it up, but sometimes the shops are closed or they’re discontinued or it was like a limited run.

So but I don’t want to be wasteful and not use my stuff so yeah and then today I am filming and editing and that’s about it and I’m dreading taking Doyle out on his afternoon walk because it’s like blowing snow out there and I’m not really wanting To do that at the moment so put in a little filmy guy right there. No, basically, the rest of my night is going to be this editing sans the bracelets. I don’t I don’t do the bracelet thing.

Well, that’s cute! I’ve never used one of these stickers before very cute. I think I think, all right, so that is it for this week. I hope you guys enjoyed the article. Sorry, it’s been so long since I’ve been online, but there are more articles to come actually filming a couple right after this. So you’ll see some more in your inbox this week.

Plan With Me | January 14th – 20th | #ECLifePlanner

Today is the 20th I’m hoping to get this article up for you guys today I was planning on filming it yesterday, but my furnace decided to break so that was fun. I do have heat now, everything’s good. I am replacing my furnace totally. If you guys follow me on Instagram, you would have seen my stories yesterday, but I’m getting a full replacement and that’s happening this upcoming Tuesday.

I believe so. It was just really really expensive and it was very, very adulty, but my furnace was over 17 years old. So it was definitely time it actually only cost me like. I want to say a couple hundred dollars more to replace the whole thing versus fix every problem with it. So I’d much rather do that, because it comes with some warranties and guarantees, and things like that. So anyway, that was fun yesterday, but also yesterday was Doyle’s birthday, so I am going to be using some Shiba washy and I think I’m going to use this sort of like black and white one.

I pulled out some orange ones too. These are all from my shop if you’re interested, but let’s talk about the planner right away. I know a lot of you guys read these all the time, but some people are new, so I use the 7 by 9 Erin Condren life planner. I got the gold coil in the hardbound cover this year. However, I did get. It comes with like a little thing here. I did get another plastic cover too just so I could, like I don’t know, use it for other things, but anyway, and then also I got the colorful version.

I did this washy myself. I did the colourful version and yeah. So we are working on this day or this day no this week, and you know we’re going to just get going with this. I’m going to grab my little thing. This is also an Erin Condren thing. It’s a it’s a bookmark, but I use it to cut washi because it just makes my life easier and where it was, this start cool. It’s so funny. I’ve had this washi for like the longest time and I have never used it.

So I figured it would be good because it’s Doyle de or it was Doyle’s birthday yesterday on the 19th and he turned 12 years old. He is an old old man that little Doyle dog he’s kind of funny. So he had a lot of visitors yesterday, because I had a lot of appointments yesterday with people coming into the house and checking on the furnace and everything. So he actually really enjoyed his day. Oh gosh and now he’s sitting at the front door because he thinks it’s time to go out and it’s like not even 9:00 a.

M. Y’all. So I don’t. I don’t know it’s like when I’m downstairs he’s like. Oh it’s time, it’s time to go. It’s clearly not time to go. He just wants to demand things yeah. So this is such a cute little Sheba washy, it’s so much fun. Okay! So let’s put in my work and then I actually got my hair done this week too, and all that good stuff. So, let’s put in some work um I have this washi, which I think is really cute.

It’s just like little X’s like little black and white X’s. I don’t know I thought that would be kind of fun with the Sheba’s situation and I always tend to write down my work schedule a little sticky note over here, because I have a flex schedule. So I just I never know when I show up and there’s some days that I’m like. Oh, I have to go in early because I got to finish this project or whatever and then there’s some days or I’m just like yeah I’ll show up at 8:30.

It’s fine actually Thursday. I started at 8:45, but that’s because I had a doctor’s appointment and I actually worked at home instead of going into the office so yeah and then some days I work really late and you know it just kind of depends, but yeah Wednesday. It was only their fertile 2:30 because I had a hair appointment at 3:00, so yeah. I was actually able to get in to see my hair gal weight earlier than I thought I would.

I sent her a message at the beginning of January and I’m like hey. You know, let me know when you have time in your schedule and I know like she’s the owner of the salon, so she kind of books up pretty fast, but she had one random day and I’m like I’ll take it. So that worked out pretty good. All right and then Thursday add in and then Friday, 7:45 to 4:45 that’ll, just cool yay work. Alright, so let me grab my work things that I need.

I should have pulled all this out before, but I clearly didn’t so whoopsie see I’m going to use these black ones, but then I keep forgetting to use these scripted words that are like some of my favorite things to use like work. Oh here, let’s use that one here we go we’re going to use this one. Instead, cuz, you know good stuff, alright, so they pull out five of these. I just think these look so cute together and these are all from coffee break planner.

I do have a discount code down below if y’all are interested in checking out her stuff. It’s a matte removable paper and it’s one of my favorites, so just just FYI how it works so yeah. I really like the coffee break planner paper. If you like, matte paper you’re going to like this a lot – and I love that it’s removable too, because y’all know your girl screws up all the time on these plan with me.

So if I need to you know, lift something up or whatever it’s just so much easier than you know, ruining your paper so yeah alright. So there is that and then duo had a nail trim, so we’re going to put that in, but I think I’m going to look and see. I have this huge dining table here but, like I never have enough room, I am going to pull all right. I’m going to use this from Chrissy and zion’s and use up my last little foil dog.

These are doyle dogs too, but they’re like the black and tan version of doyle dogs, so cute alright, so I actually have to take Doyle because he’s so ordering I have to take him to the vet to get his nails trimmed. So we did that. I have. We had an appointment at 7:15 on Tuesday, I’m going to use these. I actually got these at Michaels like years and years ago. They probably still have them, so I’m going to put a little black paw here too, because you know he like screams of bloody murder.

When we go there, but he just he just doesn’t like it, he just doesn’t like it. So I wish I could actually trim his nails myself, but that’s not happening. It’s been twelve years. That’s still not happening. Alright, then, on Wednesday I actually just saw the Caesar the Christian design stickers for Michaels, and I have this one that says: hair appointment so duh. Why don’t I use it right and um? So I had my hair appointment at a three o’clock on Wednesday and we did three o’clock p.

M. Oh. I guess I wrote through p.M. Right there whatever, but aren’t these cool little stickers, it’s so cute. I think I’m going to use this is what, because these are so cute, I’m going to heck right, tada, alright, so that is done and then also I had a doctor’s appointment on Thursday. So, let’s use the doctor’s appointment, one as well, alright, and that was at 7:45 a.M. And we had to do some like blood draws and medical check, some things.

So that’s what that one was and then we’ll use this like little stethoscope to and then that’s why. I worked from home because I sometimes will have to go back and do another blood draw later on in the day, depending on my like lab results and stuff. So I just stay at home because my clinic is really really close to where I live, and I live pretty far away. You know from where I work all right and then we are going to use.

I think I have like a little work from home thing in here, but I got ta find it. I know I have it in here been like consistently not on purpose been consistently working from home like once a week pretty regularly. That’s not something I normally would do, but it’s just like weird circumstances have come up and I’ve had to work from home, so anyway at least I have the ability to do that. Alright, these are from plan to plan sticker CO and I’m just going to put in this little gal working from home and then after work a rant at Target.

This – and this is Mayor, bear crafts. I know I got this years and years ago, but still love it all right, and I have these cute little stickers that are actually of Doyle sticking his little tongue out at me, and I got these from Erin Condren calm. You can, like you know, customize, that we all these stickers are different or they’re all the same, so I got them all the same, so she put in Doyle’s stinky little birthday here like this and I used last week.

It was my birthday, and I used this sheet from Christian designs – is from that celebrations. Collection binder and I figured oil turns 12, so we can put in his candles for 12 tada, so cute and we’ll put in some little birthday planner Steve’s, because why not right tada and then for the fun stuff. Well, first thing: let’s do some laundry because I did laundry all day so, let’s put in some non dray here we go grab an orange one, all right, so I put in furnace down here, but I’m going to use one of these.

Let’s see it’s the two-year anniversary favorites from once more with love, and let’s see here, I think we’re going to use this ugh little person. This is cute cuz. It kind of that’s kind of how I felt so what happened was in the morning. I woke up and I was like gosh – it’s really cold in here. So what took toil and a walk and came back and looked at the thermostat and it was down to like 54 degrees – and I usually keep my house at 62 like that.

Just feels good to me and I was like what the heck is going on so turn the thermostat on turn the feminine thermostat off. I was like what is happening here. Finally, it like turned back on, but then it was just blowing air. It wasn’t hot air. It was just like you know, room temperature, air, I’m like what heck it’s happening over here. So at that point I was like I should call so I called like a 24-hour emergency place that actually happened to be the same place that my parents have used for their home and I’m, like you know I don’t know, what’s going on, can you have somebody? Come out and they’re like absolutely not a problem, so I had the first technician come out and just assess what the problem was and his name was Nathan.

So I’m going to put that in here, and he basically told me that you know the repairs like the minimum repairs would be like $ 1500 and the maximum repairs to fix everything. Then it would be like I think he said $ 2,900. If I wanted to fix the unit completely and all that stuff, but new units started at about $ 3,000, so he’s like well, you know is that something you’d be interested in. Are you really interested in just repairing, and I said you know what for the cost difference I’d rather just replace the whole unit? My unit is, you know more than 17 years old and the national average, at least in the u.

S. Is about 12 years. Is how long they last some last like 40 and some last like two but whatever so then I had a guy named Bill, come out at 2 o’clock and explained everything to me and we have set it up where I am getting a new furnace on Tuesday. So I will be working it from home on Tuesday as well. See I’m and I like, keep it going. I guess right just keep keep working from home, I’m going to use one of these well stickers.

Unfortunately, this shop is not in business anymore and hasn’t been in quite a while, and but you know what this is perfect for this day right and then I called my mom to commiserate on home ownership, so that was fun she’s like way too adults, I’m like. I know right so anyway. Today I am filming my plan with me this morning and we’ll just put it in like right about here. I will edit at some point, but I’m not totally sure, and then this morning I did a little bit more decluttering.

So I’m going to put that right up here. Actually, you know what no I feel like I feel like. It would be better if I put this inside one of these. I don’t know why I just really like the way that that looks so much better than just on its own. Do you agree? I think that’s so cute so anyway, that is my week so far. I will probably put in whatever I do tonight, but I am planning on just enjoying my relaxing day and editing this article for you guys and oh I forgot to say okay so tomorrow the 21st is when tickets go on sale for the general ticketing for go Wild it’s in Vegas this year.

I will link the information down below where you can find it, so I am going to be going. I hope I meet some of you guys there I’m so so excited. I know some of you had sent me messages saying that you’re coming for the first time or planning on coming for the first time, so I’m so so excited to meet you all. So if you all are interested feel free to check that out, tickets are limited. So I am anticipating them selling out fairly fast, so I hope to meet as many of you that I can find there.

We’ve got a article for y’all. I have been collecting things basically, since I got back from go wild and I wanted to share a planner slash, sticker haul with y’all, hey that, like totally rhymes anyways. So there’s a lot for me to share with you, I’m hoping I can keep this a little brief, but you you right there you may want to grab a snack because things are about to get weird.

I am going to link everything I can down below. There’s a few things that I have discount codes for a few things that I have just affiliate links for all that stuff is going to be down below it’ll, be very transparent in the links, so first things. First speaking of go wild. I am now obsessed with simply gilded washi and you’re. Probably thinking Emily, you don’t seem like a bow person and you’re right.

However, I’m obsessed with a lot of other things. So this is not my full star dust collection, but these ones that have like the little metallic on the edges. I’m like obsessed with these. This is the white black and I think this one’s pool – blue, I’m just I’m obsessed. These are so unbelievably pretty and my new obsession in life, so yeah those are from simply gilded. I also have some other ones that I’ve heard just recently.

Some of these are like older from her collections um. I got this really cute like rainbow washi. I got this one here, that’s like kind of a wintery house situation, this one’s the simple line or something like that. I don’t know, and then this one is one that kind of go. I don’t know. I feel like these kind of go together a little bit, but this one has some metallic on it and it’s more of a floral pattern and then I just took these out of the packaging.

I got these the other day. This is from her pride collection. So it’s just the Stars. She has the bows two in the five millimeter but, like I said, bows aren’t my thing and then also I got the like fourth of July colors as well, both in the stars and five millimeters. So I’m like kind of obsessed with this, and I have already done a little pre-planning and these are going to be in my fourth of July, spread for sure so I’m pumped for that next up.

I have an old favorite that I have loved for years and she has some new stuff and I wanted to share this with y’all, so um coffee break planner, my friend Catherine. I do have a discount code down below. If you are interested in getting 20 % off of your order, but anyways there are these enamel pins, which I absolutely love, enamel pins right after I’m done with this article, I’m actually going to show my enamel pin collection so far in my vlog.

So if you guys want to see my vlogging series I’ll put a link, I think it goes right there a link up above and a card for you guys, but I thought these were so cute and I just thought they were really fun because they’re Katherine’s. So I needed some enamel pins, clearly um. She also has these really cute washes that are the same pattern as the pins, and I thought that this one was really really cute with like the planning and like the little bows.

I know I’m not a bow person, but you know, but it has like little planners on it super cute and then, since she is coffee break planner there are you know these here that have all the coffee cups and, like you know, the aerial view of the Coffee mug as well just thought that was really fun. You know so anyway, and then of course I got stickers because, like hello, it’s me so anyway um this is the little freebie that it came with, which is awesome, and then she does have a Facebook group which, unfortunately, like I’m not really around too often or Whatever on Monday nights at 9 p.

M. Eastern and they they do like a live preview of their new releases and they also do giveaways, so you guys want to join the Facebook group. I highly recommend it, and here are all of the stickers that I ordered this go-round, so I got some new trash cans. These are just plain old trash cans and then um. She has different colored ones as well. But I love me some gray, because you know team neutral and all I love these.

These are the little market baskets with no writing on them and then I’ve got the little houses which are so cute. I got little grills because it is grilling season and then I got some of my most favorite scallops event boxes here, and these are the brown ones. It’s like the dark brown and then I’ve got a bunch of lavender. Let’s see, I ordered a bunch of all the colors and then I’ve got several pinks and then what else do I have in here? There’s quite a few things: okay and then I have some of the script words, so this one is sick day.

I also have decluttr, which I clearly need um this one’s work from home and then I also have a couple of works because I was running low. I also have budget because I need that in my life I got two of those and then I’ve got some workout ones, so that is all the fun things I got from Catherine’s shop at coffee break planner, I’m trying to keep myself organized, but I know it’s Not going to like actually happen, alright and next up, we are going to do two different situations.

I discovered at go wild and I had heard of this shot before, but I never I don’t know why I just like never took a peruse on their website. I’m mildly obsessed to say the least. I have had these stickers for a while. So I’ve used some of them and there’s probably duplicates in here but wanton and a million has the cutest freaking stickers and I am usually not like I’m more of a functional person. But I’ve like into the functional things, but then I also like to put like if it’s taco day like a little burrito shake.

You know what I mean. I don’t know it’s just kind of fun, so anyways this is all from her website. I got a little laundry day, stuff, more laundry, all the laundry I got like a little road trip thing because I’m planning on doing a road trip. Oh this goes somewhere else hold on we’re going to get to that. We have like a little snow day. Shoveler! Oh goodness, there’s hold on hold on guys, it’s getting way too exciting.

I also have this one, which I think was a freebie and one of my orders. I know I didn’t specifically order this and then I got these, which are little shrugs and, like some bill pay stuff Mo Money mo dumplings, it says super fun and then ice cream, spaghetti and meatballs more spaghetti meatballs, because you know yummy yummy, a little bundle of Joy for, like kids and babies, some birthday things some eating out more tacos and burritos more like take out stickers.

This is like an eating healthy one. Clearly I like their food ones. This is like an out to dinner kind of a thing, and then this is like a little concert, so I just thought that these were so freakin cute and I’m, like I said, I’m obsessed and then I went to Michael’s and like they have sticker books for Coupons on in a million – and I’m like, I need all the sticker books. Actually I didn’t buy all of them.

I bought quite a few, so I’m going to just run through these really quick, but they are at your local Michaels or they might be on Michael’s online. So this one is like the more fitness II looking one. I think that these books, majority of them, are like five dollars and it’s not the same like sticker quality as what they have in their shop, but it’s real darn close, but it’s got all the same designs and kind of more of that pastel color way.

So yeah see like it has the laundry again and all that good stuff, so yeah there’s just some like really cute little things, there’s like some more kid kind of things and then these ones you know I can relate to and then let’s see and then like Crunch time must stay awake, laundry, a bunch of different things, but these are super cute, there’s 298 pieces in here and I think for around five dollars.

It’s pretty good and you can use coupons on these. I believe this one here the very front says like sticker addicts more sticker, please washy, please! So, of course I was attracted to this one. Sorry, I’m kind of doing this a little bit like sideways, but I think I think you get the drift and look at all of these. This gold foil is so nice. It’s really really cute all these little sticker things and then you’ve got like these little trackers, which is super cute and a bunch of these.

All these like happy male, which I’ve been getting a lot of happy male recently and then lots of washi, which is like one of my favorite things. And then all these washi addict, washy washy Wednesday is more sticker. Please sticker addict and then we’ve got like new releases refresh. Well, you saw my planner all this fun stuff, so yeah I got that one and then I have this one, which is like a bunch of the like dumplings like a little checklist, and then this one’s just more like functional.

I think what I want to do with some of these, at least is. I want to do like a whole spread of these like using these ones, and then there’s like some countdowns or some date covers right there and yeah they’re, just like really cute. I really like them. Okay, next one is like a money one. This says like payday, all that good stuff, which you know all that good stuff and then lots of money, stuff cuz.

You know I you guys know I like to budget – and you wouldn’t know by this article, but I do actually enjoy budgeting so yeah and there’s like things for like no spend, which is always a good thing to do like bills. Bill, do more budgeting. The kind of things very cute little icons there, and then we have this one, which is life as short, eat, dessert. First, because who doesn’t love desserts and fun fact I have never.

In my life eaten a macaroon. I think. That’s how you say it: macaroon macaron, Mak macaroon, I’m pretty sure. Anyway. Let me know in the comments open. It’s supposed to be. I’ve never eaten one before, but they look delicious it’s and then I love myself, some delicious Asian food. So I thought this would be amazing. At plus it’s got like this. One looks like a plate of bacon because yeah um we’ve got like taco taco night got pizza bubble, tea, all that good stuff, and this one’s like a little bit more like eating, healthy and like takeout, and then we’ve got a bunch of like functional things over Here and then more fun foods and then we’ve got some treat type of foods here with while the bubble te, which also I’ve never had before and then some ice cream and then a bunch of like coffee and tea, so yeh that one’s fun.

And then we had these ones that were in the same aisle, so these are like a weekly kit, so I don’t know I figured I just like flipped through these ones, real quick. These are not as much like icon II, if that’s even a word, they’re more like the strips and boxes and things like that so anyway, I hope you can see them. My viewfinder is like having difficulties today so anyway. That was this one here and I don’t know like what these are called.

I don’t have like a I mean it says, weekly sticker kit, but it doesn’t have like weekly sticker kit, like macaroons or whatever, but yeah. I thought this one was really cute with all the pastel colors, which I love, I think that’s so pretty so yeah and then all the gold foil, which a huge fan of gold and then that’s the last sheet, so yeah. And then I also got these, which are wonton and a million wah she’s from Michael’s.

I know that they have washes on their website as well, but these are the ones I decided to get and I just thought that they were really really fun. So I’ll put those off to the side, so those are all the things I got from wonton in a million and speaking of places, I didn’t know really know existed. I found this place, I think also because of go wild. I think that they had a little sampler in there.

This is from the coffee monsters, Co believe that they are on Etsy, so this is like a little sampler. I got this one’s super cute. It’s like the two-year anniversary sampler like when I find like these little iconic places I like to get like their samplers, because I don’t know, I just think they’re kind of fun but anyway. So this is the two year anniversary, sampler there’s also this one, which is the three-year anniversary.

Sampler. That’s got some really cute little people on them. I also have this one, which is like the the drinking emotes. I guess so. You got some beer, some hard liquor. You got some wine, you got some good stuff or sleepy little dudes, which is fun noodles because who doesn’t love noodles. Sorry, I’m like not in the right spot to tooth is headache and migraines. I suffer from migraines, as some of you know, so it’s good to track them tacos because, yes and target because yes and more so tired – because I am so tired – all the time and then baking emojis cuz, I’m going to maybe do some more baking soon.

You never know you never know all right. I also found nothing like there. A lot of this stuff is like brand new to me guys so anyway, this is a company called sticker oke, they are on Etsy and they have like branded stickers for places, and I just thought that they were really cute so yeah. So these are like little Dollar Tree ones. I got some that for from home goods I got these, which is that were kind of cute like little McDonald’s like sippy cup.

Oh, I already used a McDonald’s sippy cup. Clearly, let’s see I got a few of them because I figured like I don’t to pay for shipping like again like I might as well just buy a bunch. Here’s like the Taco Bell: sippy cups, here’s chick-fil-a, there’s not a chick-fil-a close to me, like super close to me, so I only got one chickens, good, alright and then I got Marshalls and then t.J.Maxx as well, because I love those places they are so good to Me also a place that has some branded things.

Is this company called paper and clips? They do have other things. Besides these branded things, as you guys know, I’m not like a huge look sports fan, but this is the logo for the Minnesota Wild. I do work at a company that has like sporting events that we like deal with. If that makes sense, it really doesn’t make sense, but anyway, so I wanted to get some Minnesota Wild things for my planner also Trader Joe’s and Walmart.

I very rarely go to Walmart, but I just thought: well: they had Walmart I might as well might as well grab it so anyway link them down below for ya, and then my friend Kayla hi Kayla. If you’re reading, we got to meet at go wild this year at a private Erin Condren party, which was awesome, she was so kind and so cool and I didn’t realize I knew she had her own YouTube blog. But I did not realize, and I feel like I’ve been living under a freaking rock, that she had her own stationery company and so blobby has become like my bestie so anyway, so I have little blobbies here.

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.
