2019/2020 Deluxe Monthly Planner | Erin Condren

That is coming out very very soon. It is done tada, it’s a deluxe monthly planner. This will be launching on the site on June 4th, and here are just some details that are different about this year. So let me actually get you in the frame a little bit butter and then let me like its talk a little bit alright.

So the base price for a non metallic cover, which this one is a non metallic cover, is increasing. They used to be thirty eight dollars and then now they’re going to be forty dollars and then also the base price for metallic covers are from forty three they’re going from forty three dollars and then now there are $ 45 for a metallic cover. If you want the eight and a half by eleven, this is the standard 7 by 9 size, which I prefer, but that’s a $ 5 increase just to like.

Let you know if you want that the eight and a half by eleven, your page count is actually increasing this year from 194 pages, with 40 notes pages to 230 pages. Still with the 40 pages of notes in the back, you can also choose your own start month between july 2019, ending in december at 2020. So if you want it to start like in September, you can you know, there’s lots of variety. Mine starts in January 2020.

That’s just kind of how my brain works, so I am, you know, happy that that is how it starts online, and this is only going to be offered in a 12 month version and there is also an option to add dot, grid and productivity pages in the Back so that is kind of the gist of this. I just wanted to show you this. I know some of you are like Emily. This is like a very different cover for you. This is a PR cover so, like I didn’t get to choose my cover or my guts or anything so, but it’s still a lovely and lovely cover, but you can obviously you know, take it out and then put your own cover on it, which is something I Really love about this planner.

If you guys have readed my blog before I will leave em in the card. I think it’s up here. My money talk playlist, because I typically use this planner for all of my budgets. I will stick that up there, but yeah. I’m just kinda, I just want to like thumb through this with you guys. You can see the difference and I have the colorful kaleidoscope pattern. They are going to be having this in the neutral kaleidoscope as well so very similar to the life planners.

So you have your kind of year at a glance here, which I absolutely love this page, it’s always so nice and then you get these twelve boxes and if you guys haven’t seen my walkthrough of the coil bound Erin Condren planner, it’s very not similar to this. But it’s similar ish to this I’ll, put that up in a card for you guys as well, and then we have January 2020. That starts – and I’m loving this. This is one of the pages that I absolutely love for the life planner that just came out and they included it in the monthly deluxe and I’m really glad that they did because people that just use the monthly deluxe I feel like can really utilize this.

It’s just like blank right here, so you do have like the birthday monthly goals and then like two areas that don’t have anything on them. This would clearly be easy enough to. You know, put it another sticker over it. If you don’t want to track birthdays or monthly goals, and then you get into the month with the sidebar and then you also have the next month at a glance right over here, which is awesome and then just like previous year, you got one two three four Notes pages and this one kind of goes at this one, because I’m just looking at like you know, pink and pink so yeah, that’s the biggest difference.

I want to walk through side by side, but let’s look at the rest of this first, because I have my other. This is my 2019 planner over here. So I want to walk through it together, but that’s basically what the month looks like so yeah so, like I said, mine goes through December, so I wanted to get at the end of December and then we have 2021 at a glance which is great, especially if You use this for budgeting and you know certain things are coming up like you know, maybe some vacation or something like that, and then we’ve got a bunch of notes, page ages, which mine just has the additional sorry about the glare you guys.

The dog is like in the curtains um, so I have the additional notes pages of which I love. These are so nice and very, very useful, very, very useful and then in the back. I have two pages of little event stickers here. So those are my cute little event stickers and then um, sorry I’ll get out of the curtains. I’m sorry, you guys the way you’ll get out of the curtains. Okay, we’re better! Now! Sorry, if you guys didn’t see before anyway, these these are the event stickers.

Oh goodness, Doyle’s living his best life, clearly um, alright and then at the very end. You have your pocket and then this has the metallic on the cover and then on the cover when we’re trying to say on the flap and then this one also has the big pocket flap as well. In my pr1, I got this already attached. I don’t believe that this comes with the planner, but it’s just a really acute idea and I really like how the dual tip marker goes with the cover it’s kind of cute right.

Alright, so I want to walk through month by month or like page by page. Basically and show you what the biggest differences are this year between this one and then my old one, so let’s look through it together. Actually here, let’s do it like this no hold on look well, nope we’re going the wrong way, Emily we’re going the wrong way. Okay, well, it’s not big enough. Okay! Well, let’s just flip through things and then when things are kind of changing, then I’ll show it together.

So we just got like quote pages totally. Fine, we’ve got our tabbed page. This is all the same, just a different print and then again same, but just a little bit different, and then we’ve got the next page which same all right. So we start in to January, and then this is very different. Like I said, you know, this is just an extra page and then we have this page, which I think is going to be really great for a lot of people to utilize versus just going straight into the month.

And then, if we go to the next page here, the monthly is just it’s a little bit different, but it’s just because of the design. Then it’s a little bit different, but still the same idea and loving this in the corner. They also have it here. We go to this page which no you guys are seeing my budget, I mean so very similar to the next year and then let me just count the pages real quick. So I have one two three, four, okay, one, two, three, four okay, so it has the same amount of lined note pages between every single month.

You just get two extra pages in the beginning of the month, which is awesome so yeah. I mean it’s just a good way to track things I feel like and then in the back for notes pages feel like okay, so there were two sticker sheets in the back as well, and then this and all these dinky things – I don’t know if you guys – Can see this remember these dinky things drives me nuts, because you can’t really put anything in there.

I feel like everything just like falls out but yeah. I use mine for budgeting. As I have shown, i’ve actually torn a couple of pieces out of here too, and i’ve used them. They do have the perforated edge on this one. Let me see if they have it on these ones, yeah they have a little perforated edge on there. So I just don’t feel bad, especially when there’s like what is it 40 sheets back there? I don’t really feel bad when there’s so many sheets.

In the back like in my life planner, I feel like. Oh, I don’t want to take a sheet out of a life planner because there’s only like a couple of them, but in here you know, I don’t feel bad tearing out a sheet. If I’m you know doodling or just brain dumping or something under strap it out. So yeah that is kind of it. I want to know what you guys use your Erin, Condren monthly, deluxe planner for or maybe what you would use it for if you’ve never had one before like.

I said I use mine strictly for budgeting, but I know that there’s a lot of different ways that you can use it. I know people that actually use this as their just main planner and they don’t do weeklies, because it’s just you know too much detail for them and they just like the boxes and that’s just easier for them, which I totally understand. I’m also heard of people using this for like activity tracking, if you know like weight, loss or just trying to stay active or health things if you’ve got like health issues, or things like that that you want to track like daily.

Something for you know your physician or something so yeah I mean. I think this is just like a great at-a-glance planner and I love the coil. Oh before we go. Let’s look at the coil sizes because I know that’s always a question here know they’re the same: they are the same. I know it looks a little bit funny on camera, but they are the same. It’s funny because this this um thicker cover and back cover kind of makes it look funny, but yeah they’re the same same sizes last year, alright.

Well, that is going to be it for all of the new information for the deluxe monthly planner for 2019 to the 2020. If you all have any questions feel free to put them in the comments down below and remember these go on their website on June 4th.

Erin Condren Deluxe Monthly Planner | #ECDeluxeMonthlyPlanner

Today we are going to be going through the new 2018-2019 deluxe monthly planner from Erin Condren, as well as I’m going to be sharing what I’m going to be using this particular planner for this year, as well as how I’m kind of setting stuff up. I haven’t set up anything specific just yet, but I’ve putting notes in here and all that good stuff. So I just want to show you how I’m going to use it.

I want to start out this article by saying thank you to the Erin Condren team. They so graciously. Let me pick out a planner to show you guys. So, let’s move it right along first off the woven wonder pattern. I am kind of obsessed with this pattern. I don’t think since I’ve been using your encounter, which has been a few years, I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a pattern style for the year.

As I am about this one, I actually have the washi tape sitting right here. I’m going to think I’m going to have my accessories article up before this one. So if I have that article up already, I will link it up in a card for you guys, but I decided to go with a neutral cover. It just says: fde on it. This one I’m actually going to be using for all things a favorite daughter, Emily, as some of you know that read so my budgeting articles or have been a longtime subscriber.

I do actually have my own LLC that I run a bunch of things through. So this is going to be like this, so this also encompasses like my youtube and things like that, we’ll get into that in a little bit, but the cover choice I did was obviously the woven Wonder and I personalized it and I did the white personalization and I believe that this cover is in the light taupe, if I am not mistaken, so it’s just one of the removable covers and then, when you open it up, it says deluxe a monthly planner and you can put your info right there and I did get the Colorful version – and I like mine for the calendar year, I know some people really like different options.

There are other options on the website. I will link that down below just to let you know if it’s your first time ordering through erin condren, there is a special link for you to get $ 10 off of your first purchase. If you create a profile and sign up you’ll get a couple emails from erin condren, one of them will be a $ 10 off pun code. What’s really awesome, is you get the $ 10 off coupon code and then, when your item ships, I get a coupon code as well to host giveaways or buy product.

So I can show you guys, and you know things like that, so you open up the first page and it’s the woven wonder pattern and it says you have everything inside you to be and do anything you want and then it has a little tab. That’s 2018. 2019 and then it’s got 2,000 or like July 2018 through December of 2019. I believe you can get the pad or the patterns. I’m sorry. I believe that you can get these planners in that version so July, 818 through December of nineteen.

These are great for tracking things or, if you have certain expenses or, however you’re going to set up your planner. This is really a great thing and then the next page is the twelve boxes all in different colors. I think the kind of idea from this originally was every month you can kind of have a goal or something like that, but you can really use it for anything. But, to be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever really utilized this ever in any kind of a planner, but I do like the flexibility that it’s just a blank box and you can really use it for whatever you’d like and then getting in to the planner.

I am so excited about this planner you guys there are so many different changes that I absolutely love. First of off, being the tabs there’s tabs. Finally, I’m so excited about that the incorporation of the tabs, I think, is awesome. It’s so much good. I think I feel like it’s going to be like so much easier for me to use and utilize just because of these little tabs, which you wouldn’t think it, but clearly you could put on your own tabs.

They did release Erin Condren released adhesive tabs a while ago, it’s on their website and the link is down below. I think they saw everybody doing this to their planners and they were like hold on. We need to do that too. So anyway. Also, a great thing is some of the sheets have changed, so I’m excited about that. So, let’s get into January here – and here, like I said, I’ve already kind of laid out a few different things, so I’ve just put in some birthdays there’s my birthday, my brother’s birthday and then Doyle is on the 19th.

I really like that they have incorporated like they did in the new life planner the next month. I really really like that. My life planner article, will be up after this one. Just to let you know, I did finally get it in the mail I held off for a little while I wasn’t sure what I wanted, but that article will be coming up very soon so feel free to subscribe and hit the bell notifications, because that article should Be up fairly soon after this, so this is very similar to the life planner just the way it’s set up, and this is what I’m most excited about blank pages in the past.

They had had that productivity page on the right hand, side and then over here was like five kind of rectangular boxes that I never knew what to do with. I used to use this for my budgeting. I will probably still use one for my budgeting as well, but this is not what this specific planner is going to be for this year, but I would always get comments of like. I do my budget on this page, which was like that productivity page and I would never use this side and people would comment all the time.

Well, what do you use for the left-hand side? What are you use for the left-hand side and I’m like honestly? I don’t use it for nothing, because it’s too for me personally, it was too regimented that I just couldn’t do anything with it. I probably still do my budgets I’m going to get a I’ll. Probably just get a different planner, but I will use the same style of planner but just a little bit of a differential.

But I will probably still do my budgets on this side because I’m right-handed – and I you know the coil and all that for the month that we’re in so like this would be for January. And I don’t know what I’ll use on the left-hand side. But maybe I’ll do some like goal-setting or I don’t know, there’s just other things you can do. Also you get more notes pages, so you get an extra sheet of pages and I just absolutely love that I think that’s amazing and really makes the planner versatile.

So you can just like make a list. Maybe there’s some like home things you want to do or I’ve seen people use these for, like fitness, trackers or if they’ve, like hat, you know, just had a baby and has a newborn. Sometimes they want to put in, like all the doctor’s appointments and feeding schedules and like weight tracking – and you know like things like that, there’s so many different options, which I absolutely love.

So there’s an extra note pages this year, where that used to be just like this, where you’d have one page, one page and then the next month. So now you get two extra pages which I’m super pumped about, so then we’re into February. So it’s got like the February page because it’s like a pink up here and it’s the same way all the way around so yeah, and then I put a few things in here: vlog you arey, I’m not sure I’m going to do that or not it’s.

Whether there’s a little question mark and then I’m usually in January or February, we have a Minnesota planner addicts paid for event, but I’m not sure if that is going to be happening in February or when it’s happening. That’s why I just kind of like put it over here but yeah. So all of the months are exactly the same, and then it’s got your March for the next month down at the bottom, which I love and then let’s go into the notes pages or actually at the end of December.

I’m sorry, let’s go to the end of December and then we’ll chat a little bit more here. Alright, so here is the notes pages tab, and this is looking forward to 2020. I do really like that this is in here. I love the little checklist, I’m like a fan of those and then in the coming year and then in the coming here is here and it’s just got everything in there. So when you get those invitations to weddings or you have trips or you have upcoming things in your business or maybe you have goals for 2020 or I don’t know if you have something in there, it’s nice to just kind of take this page and then, when You get your planner for next year or the year next, then you can kind of just swap out and put those things in there.

I want to show you guys what I’m doing with my notes pages and I elected to get the maximum amount of notes pages. There’s quite a few, I will kind of lift this up, so you guys can see. It’s super super thick where before there was only like, I don’t know 20 or 30 notes pages, there’s like ah gone now, but there is an additional fee. If you want to get those – and I decided to go for it – because I knew what I was going to use this for – and I wanted to show you guys – the first page is going to be for income.

I haven’t set up anything yet and I probably will end up doing this in a separate article if you guys are interested because this doesn’t start until January anyways and we are still in July very end of July. This might be up in August, but I’m hoping to get it up in July. I don’t feel the need to like set it up right, the second, so let me know if you guys are interested in seeing like how I’m actually going to set my notes pages in here.

So my work income is going to be on my first sheet. So I get a few different things through the favorite daughter, Emily company as revenue streams. So the first one is YouTube, so I’m going to do YouTube and this will be just like tracking monthly income levels and things like that, so I have YouTube. I’ve also got Amazon, ShareASale Etsy contracts, and then I left a couple of other pages as well, and then I can also use the back side of here too, because I was kind of like ooh.

What if I like, expand and do something different or whatever, but I can always use the back side cuz really. I just need like twelve lines. To be completely honest, so I just looked a couple of extra pages and then this is my Etsy PR donations. The value of the item and also my shipping fees – I just really need to track that for 2019 for tax reasons. So when planner groups come to me and ask me for donations from my Etsy shop and I’m able to fulfill those donations, I just need to track that so that’ll be pretty easy, I’m only electing two pages for this front and back and then also Etsy expenses.

So there’s lots of different expenses that you incur by running an Etsy shop and business. So I have a ton of notes pages for this, but you know transactions from stores or Amazon or shipping fees or like any of that stuff. Just I want to put into here this is going to be at the only, but I am going to go over some of the other stuff in just a moment. This one is YouTube. Expensive, YouTube and Etsy are two different animals, yet they run through the same LLC.

If that makes sense. For me, I elected for twelve pages because I am going to be putting in all of my either monthly bills or doing tracking as to like how much I’m spending throughout the month and all that stuff too. So I have one page front and back that I can utilize for that. Also the things that I can run through my business legally. I’ve already talked to my tax professional. Do not take any tax advice from me, please.

I am NOT a tax professional talk to your tax professional. If you would like to run things through your business, if you have one so anyways what I can do, the way that my business is set up is, I can take my Wi-Fi, my health insurance health expenses and also my cell phone, and take that out of My normal budget – and I can run that through my business, so I can actually pay those bills in full through the business.

Also, clearly, I’m going to put anything that I need for like article equipment products, you know gear camera stuff anything I need for favorite daughter. Emily YouTube is going to be on here, as well as any taxes and fees and like all that kind of stuff is going to be in here, so I’ve got 12 pages set up for this, and then I’ve got a few pages set aside for mileage. I do try to track my mileage, it’s so hard, but I do try to track it.

I set aside four pages for that and I’m just going to do like a running tally of like January and then like when January stops like make a line, and then, like February and whatever you know, I do have to travel sometimes to go to events or Go pick up things and there’s other little things included in that. So I like to get that tracked. So, let’s move that a little bit and then event expenses, so my fees, food, while I’m there etc anything else that I’m you know spending while there.

So I did a couple of sheets for this. I did four sheets for myself but, like I said I go to, I don’t know if I said this, but there’s two paid for events for the Minnesota planner addicts every year that I do attend and have attended since they started doing these paid for events. So I will put that in there, as well as the unpaid for events as well. I can track my mileage and things like that when I go there so I’ll put that in my other mileage tab but yeah.

So I just like to put that in there and I’m not sure if I’ll be going to any other events this year, but we’ll stay posted speaking of other planner events. I am planning to go to go wild this year, so I am going to be setting up my budget and then my actual spending on this page. I know that it’s going to be in Las Vegas. I put may question mark the last. I think there’s been three go: wilds I’ve only gotten to the last one in Austin Texas, so I missed out on the first two but they’ve always I think they’ve always had them like the first weekend in May, but the dates have not been released yet so This will be kind of my planning page for my budget and then we’ll put in my actual on this page as well, and I have one page elected for this front and back and then also there is a another planner event that I would love to go To next year it’s called plan camp, so I’m going to be doing a budget and an actual for this as well, and then the dates have already been released, but there’s no location.

Yet it’s going to be June 28th through the July 1st. If you guys are interested in plan camp check out on Instagram plan, camp and you’ll find it and I’m sure they’ll be releasing more information from there. The Gaels from design pandemonium, I believe, are like the heads of this planner event and I do know both of them in real life. They are part of the Minnesota planner people, so I’m assuming I don’t know this for sure, but I’m assuming that the location will be closer to me because I’m in Minnesota I’m not sure if it’s going to be in Minnesota or not, but the last one.

I believe was I was on my cruise during the last one, or else I would have tried to attend the that one. That’s going to be it for this one, and then I did leave a couple of extra pages in case there’s any other planner events that I’d like to go to or get invited to. So that’s that and then also I have a tab, and this is going to be the last tab so far article ideas and requests. So a lot of you give me some great ideas.

Also, I get inspiration from everywhere else too. I think I said this in another article that I don’t really enjoy reading too many planner people on YouTube, because I feel like I just kind of regurgitate the articles that I like. So if I see something from a friend on the Internet, I feel like it’s like. Oh, I want to do that article too, but am I copying them, I’m not sure. So, to be honest, I maybe I’m subscribed to like three or four planning people and that’s it.

I know there’s a ton of them out there, but I try to limit myself just because I just don’t want to seem inauthentic. So if you guys ever have any specific article requests, let me know this is where I’m going to keep my running tally and we’ll just go from there. So I’m really excited about that. I got ton of pages for this so, like I said before, I got the maximum amount of pages that you can get and there is a fee for that.

But I think it’s well worth it. If you’re going to be using this for tracking lots of different things like I am also in the are some sticker pages, which I love, so these little sticker guys are so incredibly cute. I love the little asterisks, so there are two of these and then we have our pocket folder just like in all of the planners, and then you got the big pocket in the front. I got the little one in the back.

To be honest, I don’t think I’ve ever used the little one, but I do love the big one for like invitations or things like that, and then the very back side. You’ve got this kind of blank back cover where you can use your like white erase or your you know eraser. What is that thing called what erase that’s what it’s called your? What erase markers to write down little notes and things like that and then the back cover it looks exactly the same so and then obviously this has the little.

You know page right here too alright, so that is going to be it for my walkthrough of the deluxe monthly planner for 2018-2019. Like I said before, links are below, if you guys want to check this out for yourself, I’m so excited about the improvements and changes that they made this year. Oh, I should also say the paper quality is exactly the same as last year, so I will not be conducting a pen test.

However, if you guys are interested, I will put up in a card somewhere my walkthrough of the deluxe monthly planner from last year, because that’s when the paper changed and it’s a little bit thicker in years past. So I really really like this paper. I’m excited that they stayed. I believe it’s a brand called Mohawk paper, I’m really glad that they stayed with that brand and it’s very very nice, a very thick and very easy to write on as well.

So that’s going to be it for me today. Thank you guys so much for joining me again. If you have any questions, feel free to post them down below. Also, if you have any article ideas for 2019, let me know suggestions. I always love suggestions down below or who knows, I might do it this year too. You never know also, if you guys decide to get a deluxe monthly planner. Let me know in the comments what you guys are going to be using it for, like I said before, I’m going to head use one for a budget and then this one’s going to be for my youtube tracking and all of my other etsy stuff and all The stuff that’s runs through my business, but let me know other great ideas of how you would use this in your daily life if you had one.

So thank you guys so much for hanging out with me today and I will see y’all in the next article. Bye guys well, folks, is time to kick it old-school.

Reunion Planner | Erin Condren Deluxe Monthly

I am going to share how I am going to be using the deluxe monthly planner from Erin Condren, and I actually purchased myself another one, because the one that I previously had was the full year of 2020 and what I’m using it for. I actually need like now like the months now so anyways I did a little well. I did a little shopping because I am going to use a couple of these items, but actually a lot of these items all of these items.

What am I talking about in the planner, so I figured, I would just wait and show you guys, so I got this little flair thing. This is one of those little drusy drusy. I don’t know how to say it can someone. Let me know in the comments like how you say this, because I’ve been saying it, I’m probably saying it wrong. Let’s see here, did you do here? We go. I actually have the white one on my wallet, but I got the black one because I just don’t know I thought it was cute and why not right? I also got a Polanyi pack, it’s just great, so I am going to take this out.

Okay, I need like a garbage pile over here, so I figured I would put this on here because you know the cute, the cute. Alright, I got this so I could put all my stickers inside of it and then let’s go to this. This is the actual planner that I’m going to be using. However, whoops there’s like a little these kind of pop off, sometimes um. However, they did not have the option to have this like school, one in the monthly deluxe.

So I had to purchase this separately, which is totally fine, so let me rip this guy off do do if you guys want to see my other monthly deluxe article, which is going to be like way more in-depth than this one feel free to click. The little link in the card right there and yeah okay. So let’s snap on the new covers and then I’ll explain what the heck I’m even using this planner for this year. It’s always easier like for me at least it’s easier.

If I go like this all right now, we’re ready to go all right. I just got a random new cover. Okay, so here we go um. This is for FHS, a class of 1999, a reunion, and yes, my 20-year reunion is this year and I am on the planning committee, ha ha, ha ha ha ha ha right, so hey grace, so the monthly deluxe I thought would be awesome for this. Our scheduled event is actually happening in October and I believe it’s October 5th and yeah.

I really don’t need the rest of these months, but I have like all the notes pages, which is fabulous and I purchased a little pen holder as well, because I thought it’d be great for that, because we have meetings and stuff like that with, like some of Our vendors and all that good stuff, oh this, should have been like way higher hold on. Oh, it’s still work. I don’t know. Maybe let’s uh, let’s see, ok, because I want to put this a case of pocket on here and it’s going to be like tighten.

Okay, I also got these. These are the two large corner pockets. So let’s put these babies on, and I also have these on my Erin Condren life planner that I’m using for this upcoming year so yeah, because I’m a person that never never never actually writes on these. I wish I was that person, but I am like clearly not so yeah and then let’s open this bad boy up over here, I’m going to use this one right here and then all right.

So we are good to go right there, okay, awesome, so I also got some other things for this planner. I don’t know what I’m going to use. These are like little graduation, wah she’s from my old Etsy shop. I no longer have the Etsy shop, but I figured I would pull a couple of those from my old stock. I also got this one. I thought was super cute from wanton and a million it’s a little like graduation, one so funny, and then because of my mascot in high school was the Tigers.

I found these and I just thought they were super cute, and this is a company I had never purchased from before called a plan and go, and then these were just like little tiger heads. I think she had ones that were like tiger heads, but like invent boxes as well so anyway, but I thought that these would be really cute to mark out like no sending emails or whatever. Also, I got a few things from plan to plan sticker coat.

I’m not sure what I’m going to use, but you know whatever. So there is some like crayons and school buses, also like little person writing emails, because that’s kind of how the whole committee is communicating. We’ve got like our drinks and then also we’ve got like little apples, and then I thought this would be really cute too so yeah. So since I’m only using this for the rest of 2019, I am going to pull out what I don’t want in this planner, because I just don’t want it to be like really bulky, if I have to take it to like meetings and stuff like that.

So this might be a little sacrilege, but you know what I’m pulling out pieces of paper. I was thinking about uncoiling and recoiling it, but that just seems like way too much of a problem, so we are taking things out of the planner and all I really need here is well. I don’t even really need this to be completely honest. I just take this out yeah, I don’t care about this. Okay, bye-bye look read me: destroy a planner.

Yeah. Okay still want this, and then I want the July tab. Obviously, okay and then the reunions happening in October. I will keep November, but December yeah got ta, go all right, I’m just going to rip out some pages right now, so maybe I’ll like lay some music over this, because some of you are probably like crying reading me do this, so I apologize all right. So I’m done ruining things you guys can look now anyway, so I got up to the very end of the last month.

That’s in here, which is June, and then I’m going to keep the notes pages that were part of the June thing and then over here are more no well okay hold on ripping things out again. Sorry guys don’t need this and I really don’t need it because it just has that on it. So I’m really just getting rid of one notes, page so yeah, but then all of these our notes pages so yeah, I’m so excited yeah. And then you got the stickers which I’ll keep in here and then you get the folder and then I put these little guys in there as well yeah.

So this is this: is my new planner, I’m so so excited, and I am going to be doing a some decorating in here at some point I don’t know when, but at some point I will and I’m really going to be excited to share with you guys. This stuff and then what I’m going to do I’ll just get it all set up right now, someone I used these put them in here do this is like a total reminder to myself, but I need to email everybody like like now so yeah.

I am all set and ready to go for my reunion, this fall yay so anyway, and that is it for this article. I hope you guys enjoyed it.

Income Tracker Setup | 2019 Business Planner | #ECDeluxeMonthlyPlanner

I wanted to share how I am setting up my financial stuff in my business planner. This is for 2019, so I won’t be using this anytime soon, but I wanted to show you just how I’m setting it up. So, let’s talk about the things that I may or may not use. I just kind of pulled some things out and I will leave links down below to all of the shops that I’m mentioning.

I just have this movie strip like film strip, washing that I got a long time ago, like Michaels or something I have these little calculators from coffee break planner. I also have some event stickers from coffee break. Planner I’ve got these are really cute little computer desks from Bob Bob. I can’t talk today, Peiper paper company. Sorry, I’ve done like three articles already. So that’s like I’m going a little batty at the moment and then I also have these two different size youtube buttons from Harriet Wright designs.

I am going to be using my Erin Condren planner. This is my one for 2019, like I said, and this is the deluxe monthly planner. If you guys want to see a article on how I originally set this up, I will leave it in a card up above, for you guys. It just has basically like a monthly view, and then it has some pages in between and then I elected to get a ton of notes pages. As you can see, the notes pages are about as thick as the guts of the regular planner.

So I wanted to track a bunch of things, so that was kind of the catalyst of this. So what I want to do in this article is, I want to show you how I’m setting up my like first page but here’s the issue we’re going to talk about revenue streams, really quick. So this little page marker is also from Erin Condren, I’m just going to put that off camera. At the moment my work income is very different, so I get Google Adsense, which is basically like the money you make off of views on YouTube.

That’s going to be this first page, the next page is going to be Amazon. I do have affiliate links from Amazon, there’s always links below and I always denote affiliate link. So I do get paid from Amazon. Usually, every month like you have to hit a certain threshold or whatever and now the really cool thing is. I just set up an Amazon door or like an Amazon shop. So basically you can shop all my favourite things and I have them listed like in categories.

So I put like kitchen and then like a bunch of stuff that I’ve either talked about in my kitchen, or maybe I’ve never talked about it, but I use it and I put it in there. I put like all my cleaning products I have like done just skincare makeup. Planner supplies that I absolutely love from Amazon and all that good stuff. The cool thing is, is, if you check out with the link, that’s given, so you know you just stay on the browser for that long and then you know you check out no matter what it is regardless.

If I suggested something to you or not – or maybe you just check out with the items in your cart, I actually get a small percentage of your transaction, which is awesome. Your cost doesn’t go up or anything like that. It just lets Amazon know that I sent you there. So that’s a really cool thing, so I do get an income stream from Amazon and then also share a sale. The only thing I do for share a sale right now is Erin Condren.

So there is an again a link down below, for you guys says you can buy something from Erin, Condren again same thing as Amazon, your price doesn’t go up. If you use the clickable link, it’s like a unique link that sends you there and you check out. Then again I get a small percentage of the sale and the cost of goods does not go up. Shareasale is like for bloggers and instagramers and youtubers influencers, and things like that.

So you have to meet certain requirements to do that, but I’ve been doing it for the Erin Condren for a while, and I really like it but yeah. It’s just kind of one of those fun things, but I can sign up for like other companies on ShareASale, but I just haven’t yet because I don’t know none of them have like turned my crank Etsy. I clearly own an Etsy shop. The link is below, I feel like this whole, like intros, like link, is below go check it out so yeah I have Etsy and then also I have contracts that I will sometimes do so.

I left that in there and then I have a bunch of blank pages as well so in case there’s other like streams or something like that that I need to deal with. So anyway, let’s set the first page together and then I will show you guys in the end, because it’s going to be way too much. Article footage, if I do all of them but I’ll, stop the camera and then show you what I did once it’s all over with. So let’s do the YouTube stuff.

First, I just need like what I’m here. Let’s talk a little bit more um. So what I’m going to do is I’m going to put the months here so like January through December, and then what you know, what my income was for that month and then what the running balance is as well so like how much basically I’ve made throughout the Year so it’s like you know the actual and then the total so yeah that’s kind of what the plan is.

So I really only need 12 spaces, but I think I’m going to do like every other space. Maybe I don’t often thinking thinking that might look kind of more aesthetically pleasing to my eyeballs, I’m kind of just using the line as a guide to not totally make this look crooked. You know just a little crooked, not all the way crooked, and then these are the snap-in bookmarks from Erin Condren and I love them for cutting washi because they seem to work really well for me and then on my sticker here I am going to be using A pilot ultrafine point permanent again.

This link will be a below as well, and I get these on Amazon. They come in a bunch of different colors, there’s black blue red and green. I believe so love these alright. I guess I could probably take this off of here. There we go. That’s a little bit better, all right we’re going to put the total at the end here: income Khanna right over there! Well, that’s really crooked, Emily good job! Don’t worry guys, I’m a professional! Oh! My goodness, you would think by, like you know, I’ve done this for years.

I could lay washi straight and I could do all those things not so much. Not so much. Oh well, all right just put a little calculator on the side there and then I think I think one of these big boys will fit in here. I think yeah cool, all right and I don’t know – maybe one of these will fit up here too. I just love these. I think these are so cool. I just haven’t had a real opportunity to use them yet actually hold on here’s.

What I’m going to do? I’m going to move this just a little bit over and the nice thing about coffee break planner stickers is, is their mat removable, so you can move them around and actually, like several months later, you can still do that at least on the Erin Condren paper. I’ve noticed so that’s kind of exciting, so I’m going to put this guy like right up here. I think that looks really cute, because basically, I’m like on the computer all day, which is what youtubing really is, you would think a lot of it’s.

You know the articles, the articles are the articles, but a lot of it is on the interwebs so staying connected and all of that good stuff. So my mindset for this whole thing is that I want to kind of keep this other side blank. I would use this marker, but this does bleed through a little bit, which is why I just use them on these stickers. So I am going to go in with my paper. Mate ink, joy, gel pen and again link will be below for this guy.

If you are interested, but I am going to list out all the months and make a line and another line and we’re going to just go with it all right, so I have all my months in and as I was you’re thinking about this, I was like. Oh, my gosh I really wanted to put in another category, has nothing to do with income, but I do want to put in like right here. I’m going to put it right underneath here, I’m going to put subscriber count, so I think it’s just really fun like I love reading, like my friends that are on YouTube, their subscriber counts.

You know how they change and fluctuate, and I really want to keep track of that. The reason that I like to keep track of it. Subscribers really doesn’t I mean if you want to like talk about YouTube like income, and things like that subscriber count has absolutely nothing to do with your income level on YouTube at all. So the nice thing about looking at the subscriber count is you can kind of look and see what months you’re gaining a lot or maybe losing a lot to be honest, this past, like 30 days, I think I’ve lost like over three or four hundred subscribers and I’m really not sure why I have been posting really regularly.

I’ve been doing a lot of vlogging, which everyone that comments on the vlog says that they really like the vlogs, but maybe they don’t like the vlogs. Maybe I need to do more planning articles which I’m trying to do, but it’s very weird, but sometimes YouTube will promote my blog and other times. They won’t – and I think that this summer, for whatever reason I just haven’t, been really in people’s like suggested bars, you know like when you read on YouTube.

You have like your screen and then you have like that’s suggested a lot of times. I get new subscribers because of the suggested bar like the suggestion like that long bar there. I don’t know why but whatever, but it’s just nice to see like, oh in you know, January switch something up, and I did something different. So, when February hit, I had like how many more subscribers – or maybe I didn’t, do a lot in January and my subscriber went like lower or whatever I don’t know.

It’s just very strange. Actually, what’s really funny is, like my blog grew a ton when I wasn’t doing any articles at all like last January into February. I don’t, I think I uploaded like one or two articles like it was hardly anything, and I think I like gained, I don’t know like a thousand followers, or so it was just really weird, I’m like why is it growing? I’m not doing anything. So I don’t know it was very weird, but I’m going to keep creating content for you guys, I’m not so hung up on the subscriber count, but it’s just a fun thing to track.

So anyway, I’m going to be using this Chris, a sticker sheet. I’m just going to like use this little sticker right here and just kind of put it right there and then I’m just going to put subscriber on it and if you guys are interested on the number on. This is ka D, 0, 0, 2, 3, 2 and her sheets are like a matte vinyl like a semi-gloss kind of a thing, we’re not glossy but they’re like a semi-gloss and they smell like I don’t know they smell, like pool floaties like little arm floaties.

I don’t know why or like really love that smell, but I’m going to take this little red one cuz we’re going with like the red theme. Alright, so just wrote subscriber so yeah and then I can just track that right there and you always have to wait for a second for this to completely dry. So I think it’s dry now perfect looks super cute alright, so I have got my trusty Erin Condren snappin ruler right here, so I’m going to use that close up this binder here.

This is how I store all of my Christian designs, stuff cuz. It’s an obsession! You guys it’s an obsession all right, and that is it. That is what I’m going to be doing for the rest of these pages. So I’m going to stop the camera because, like I said it’s going to be way too much article file footage. I don’t even think my memory card is that big for as long as it’s going to take me to do this, so I will see you guys in just a second when I’m all done alright.

So I am back. I am all done with my financial pages and my business planner for 2019. So I wanted to show you what I did and where I got everything. So I did change this just a little bit since we last saw each other. I did include these um they’re. Just like little money stickers, I want to say that I got this from paper loving mommy, on Etsy. If, for some reason, you can’t find any of these things on these specific shops, you can also Google or search on Etsy like money, stickers or whatever kind of sticker you’re looking for, and there are so many other wonderful shops out there too.

I just happen to have these from other shops, so anyway, I put these on all of my pages, for you guys. So here is my youtube page and then moving right along. This is my Amazon page. So I’ve got my little scallop boxes, which these are all from coffee break. Planner I’ve got my little money guy. I’ve also got this. It’s so cute. It says my transformer name is Amazon, Prime, and that is from small-town grace and then I’ve got these little shopping bags, which are from Lily Henry several years ago, and then I also have this little Amazon sticker from KB sticker Co and then obviously I’ve got.

You know it’s the same template all the way through, and then this one here I have oh, and I should say most of the washi that you see is on my shop on favorite daughters, shop on Etsy. I will leave a link down below most of it’s on there. Some of it isn’t, but you know, there’s lots of different stuff on there at the moment. This is not because this is an Erin Condren product. This is an Erin Condren washi.

They do come as a set, and this is the new pattern for this year – the woven wonder which I’m like kind of obsessed with so again. The scallop boxes are from coffee-break planner, we’ve got the money and then the little eyeglasses. Those are from a sticker sheet. From Erin Condren comm and then the little EC, I just put that on there too, and that’s a sticker from Erin Condren as well, and the little shopping bag is also from Lily Henry.

This is going to be from my Etsy page, so the washi is from my shop and then I also have the scalloped boxes, which are coffee, break planner. Sorry, this is kind of redundant, but I know a lot of people ask and then I’ve got the money. The boss sticker, those are also from small town grace and then the little bag again is from Lily Henry and then the Etsy sticker is from planner topia. And then this is the last sheet that I have and then all of the scale up boxes, as well as a little calculator, are from a coffee break.

Planner the washi is from my shop. We’ve got the money sticker again with another one of those Rea done. Mugs and that is from small town grace and then these awesome computers are from a piper a paper company, and then I do have a couple of extra sheets in the back in case, there’s other revenue streams or I decide to do something different with the business. This year, but yeah so we’ve got my contracts, Etsy ShareASale, Amazon and YouTube, so that is going to be it for me today.

Thank you guys so much for hanging out with me. If you’ve got any other questions for me feel free to post them down below and if you guys run a business or own a business. How do you guys keep track of your expenses? Clearly, I’m a paper planner person, but I know a lot of people. Do it online as well, but let me know how you do yours. I’d used to be really curious.
