Home Improvement Tracker | #ECLifePlanner

If y’all are interested in the exact when I got, I will put it up in a card for you. My walkthrough hold on. I can’t like turn things and look at the viewfinder. At the same time, I got the lux cover and I actually have an interchangeable cover behind it, because I want to use this as a dry erase board at some point.

So I got an additional cover and this is the woven wonder, pattern in the lighter version and then the luxe version had the woven wonder only in the light kind of Navy based and then they also have a black one. That has the white lines in it. As well so anyway, this is my life planner and I do get the hourly layout and it looks like this and I have done a couple of other articles about this planner and I will link them down below for you as well.

Alright, let’s get this back straight again! Here we go so I have been kind of brainstorming how I was going to use this page. This page is at the very beginning of the planner, it’s right after the view of 2000 and 2018, all the way to the end of 2019, and I just have never really utilized this in any of my life planners and I’ve. This is my third life planner. Fourth, life planner. I can’t remember, there’s been so many I was thinking about it last night and I’m like you know what I have so many like little home projects.

I want to do that. Don’t necessarily need a full page like it doesn’t need like a whole notes page as I’m trying to stay so it’s like well, maybe I can put in all the different like areas in my home that I possibly want to work on in 2019 and kind of Have like a running checklist of things I want to get done and then, when I get them done that I can check them off my list. So that is what I’m going to do today.

I already laid down some page flags as to like the rooms. I want to like talk about in each category and I used my Erin Condren clip in stylized, sticky notes. It has these old teeth right here, so you can literally just with them in if you want to, and they don’t pop out until you go like a deuce. So I kind of figured out that these were all the rooms in the home that I would possibly want to focus on.

I have a little bit of a smaller home if you guys have seen my vlogs or anything like that, but clearly this could work for any sized home or apartment or condo or whatever, but you could just make it your own or if you want to get A little bit more specific, you could, you know, there’s other things you could do. What I’m going to be using today is going to be this Erin Condren. This is there like conversion of washi, but it’s paper tape, but it really goes with this woven wonder pattern.

That’s at the top there, so I’m going to use that on here as well as I have these metallic scalloped boxes from coffee break, planner, which I absolutely love in the foil, and these are gold, which I thought would look really nice with my gold coil that I have so I’m going to put in like kitchen or dining room or whatever on there, and then I also have these from Erin, not Erin Condren. Oh my gosh coffee break planner, I’m losing it today.

Um – and these are these cute little houses, which I think I’ll incorporate in some fashion on here – I’m just not sure how just yet and then I think I have some checklists from Christian designs still, but I’m going to just look real quick, alright. So I am almost out of these checklists, but I think today I’m going to write down, maybe one or two things in each category. If I have anything kind of pending on my mind and then I’m going to use these little checklists, just kind of just put them in so I can cross them off and check them off when I complete them, and today I’m also going to be using.

I can Trevor if I talked about this, yet maybe I did maybe I didn’t. I don’t know I’m going to be using my pilot ultrafine point permanent marker to use on my coffee break planner stickers and then on my actual page, I’m going to be using this jelly roll. Oh eight, it’s kind of like a more like a darker blue version. I believe they call it blue online, but it is more of a like a true Navy and I will link the pen sources down below for you guys as well.

So let’s get this party started. Let’s see how I’m going to do this, I’m not like totally sure yet. I think I want to leave like the little colour kind of poking out still, but let’s, let’s see, let’s see what looks good all right and this little bookmark is also from Erin Condren. It just snaps in again all right. I think I like the way that looks. Let’s, let’s do one together and then I will speed up things because we all know how redundant things could get on the Internet all right.

So I think I like how that looks. I just wrote entry and then let’s try this one as well, so I’m just not I’m not sure y’all, I’m not sure, okay yeah. I think I’m into this okay. So, let’s speed up the footage a little bit and I will do all the rest of these and then we will chat at the end when I am putting in all of the different tasks that I have for each location of my home all right. So I am finally all set up with all the rooms that I want to focus on for 2019 in my home, so I’m super pumped about that.

So let’s talk about the things that I want to do in my home. I’m actually going to use some of these little checklist from Christian designs. If you guys are interested, it’s the kad, zero, zero, four seven, eight I’ll link her shop as well as all the other sources that I’m using down below. But let’s focus on one page: at a time and I’ll zoom you zoom in a little bit Emily come on there. We go well zoom in just a little bit and four on the paper.

Here, I’m going to be using this jelly roll, oh eight! So in the entryway, I want to focus on a few things, so I’m going to just lay this down, oh and by the way I like to use a tweezers to lay these down, because they’re very, very meticulous, I’m currently using a Revlon tweezers with the slant Like the area, it’s probably easier to see it on the white there, with the like slanted tip, I feel like these really helped with pulling them like pulling them off of the sticker sheet as well as laying them down.

It gives me more control I’ll leave a link below if you guys are interested in exactly the ones I am doing so in the entryway. I want to do a few things, so let’s write those in and then we’ll talk about it, alright. So in my entryway I want to do two specific things. I want to change out my light fixture and they also want to paint a bench. There’s a bench. That’s actually a built in that was you know in the home before I bought it, and it’s kind of that golden oak color that all the rest of my other cabinetry is or was, and I want to paint that white at some point.

So that’s kind of on my to-do list living room. I don’t really have anything like really specific. I want to do in the living room for 2019 in my half bath. I also have a couple of things I want to do so. Let’s put those in alright. So in my half bath I want to paint my vanity. It’s also that golden oak color and I want to paint my walls, I’m kind of kicking myself that when I moved in here a year ago, I didn’t just paint the bathrooms either because the bathrooms actually weren’t that bad, but now looking at them, it’s like.

Oh, I want paint those so anyway, that’s part of my things that I want to accomplish in the laundry room. I really don’t have anything specific in there in the garage. I have a couple little things and we’re going to put those into there’s. Actually a couple of projects within this project, but it’s hang shelving and then the guest room is not going to be a guest room anymore. But I want to do a couple of little things, but my main one I’m going to put in for 2019 all right and then the guest room with bunny ears.

I need to find an air mattress that will work for my space and I also need to figure out some bedding storage solutions for the space as well. When I have guests come over, I’m either going to set them up in the loft or my new office, which is currently a guest room, but I’m going to change that over into an office. So there’s going to be some major changes happening at the fde house. In 2019, all right, so, let’s move along to the next page over here, so I’m just going to put in all the things that I want to do in each location and then we’ll talk about it at the end, all right.

So I think I am done now so I did add over on this side under garage keypad. I forgot that I really wanted to get one of those like keypad things. The funny thing is, is my home is already wired for it, but the keypad that’s out. There is like a faux keypad like it’s, not real, so you have to put in your own and all that good stuff, but I am going to hopefully be working on that in 2019, so over to the right in the kitchen.

Of course, I want to do a ton of things to my kitchen, but in there big things too, so I want to switch out the light fixture. I currently have this like a track system that I really don’t like, so I’m not sure if the lights still have to be tracks or if I can just get new actual like lights, for the track, I’m not sure but off to consult with an electrician. On that, I want to paint my cabinets, which is a huge undertaking, and then I also want to install a garbage disposal in the kitchen in the dining room.

I don’t really have any specific plans for the dining room at this point, but we’re going to just leave it open. I’m sure I will put something in there at some point. As for the loft again, the light fixture, the light fixtures are really really horrible here and what’s actually kind of funny is that the original owner spent more money on these light. Fixtures that I just think are hideous they’re like these like weird like spotlights, and that just doesn’t do it for me, so I really wish he would have just left the original ones in there cuz.

I know what they look like. I’ve been to my neighbor’s house and those are all original and I’m like whiney just leave those in there I mean they’re, not fabulous, but they’re, not bad, like they’re, not bad, like the ones that I heard I already have, but anyway, but switching out the light Fixture in the loft is one of my main priorities and then in the master bath. I want to paint my cabinet and vanity.

I have like oh tall, like like kind of built into the wall cabinet and then the vanity and then paint the walls again. Both bathrooms are basically the same in my bedroom. I don’t really have any like specific design plans or anything like that or things I want to buy just yet I’m going to leave that open because I’m sure I’ll put something in there at some point. As for my office, I have a huge remodel to do and I need to buy all of my IKEA office furniture and then the other tasks that I have that I’m like really needing to do is I need to remove the closet door and then I want To put up some like draperies and stuff in its place, as I set up my IKEA office furniture, I won’t be able to open the closet door all the way, because they’ll get swings and I’ll have a piece of furniture in the way and no one’s going To be using that room anyways besides myself, so I want to just remove the door and I will end up just putting the door in my garage and storing it out there for the next possible owner, oh and speaking of the office.

I do need to do one more thing in there, which is to paint the trim of the doors. So let’s put that in as well. Actually, I need to paint the doors too. What’s with that, and I need to paint the doors anywhere but in the office for sure I was thinking about just getting new doors but they’re so expensive. You guys, like I don’t know if I could do that, it just seems like kind of a waste cuz. The doors are fine, it’s just they’re like not a nice color for my design, aesthetic.

So I think I’m just going to spend the time and money and effort and just paint them versus spending a ton of money and getting them installed and having to deal with contractors here and doing all that stuff. And you know it’s just it’s just a whole long thing: it’s not just a door, it’s like the casing and the trim and all that and they going to rip everything out. It just becomes a whole long thing, but anyway that is going to be it.

For my article today, I hope you guys enjoyed this like legit. This is making me very motivated to like want to tackle these projects right now, but of course, I’m going to pace myself and when I do these little updates, I will be giving you all some sneak peeks, either in a article or on Instagram or Facebook, so Feel free to follow me there by social media links are always below for you guys and of course I will source all the things that I use for this spread down below and if you are interested in getting your own Erin Condren products if you’ve never bought Anything there before there is a link for you that says first-time Erin, Condren peeps and if you sign up and created an account, Erin Condren will send you an email for $ 10 off of your first purchase.

Plan Without Me | April – May | Erin Condren Life Planner

I have not a film to plan with me in a really long time, because I’ve been noticing that when I get home from work I need to just like decompress and I’ve really been just planning after I get home and kind of doing it throughout the weeks. I don’t really forget anything so yeah, I just haven’t done anything on camera, but I wanted to show you guys some of my weeks for the last about month or so before I get started if you’re new, to my blog.

This is what I use. This is an Erin Condren and a life planner in the luxe cover. I know that I just filmed a article sharing the regular life planner. Where is it it’s over here hold on? Let me show you so this is the new coiled life planner. I will throw that article up in a cart for y’all, and then I also because I can’t make up my mind got a neutral binder as well, and I will also throw that up in a card for you guys if you’re interested, but that’s what’s currently on The website, I’m not sure if they have Lux covers this year.

I really haven’t looked too hard at the website, but anyway, this is what I have been using for 2019. So it’s my on-the-go life planner and I use the hourly layout. I’ve been a fan of the hourly layout ever since it came out, and I don’t know I don’t know if I’ll ever go to a different layout – maybe maybe not I don’t know, but anyway, I just wanted to kind of share with you some of my layouts. This is probably going to be like a really short article.

I don’t know so anyway. This is April 1st through April 7th, and you know just have basic week – didn’t really do much after work clearly, and then I think I put some of these on my Instagram. I’m not sure my Instagram is down below if you guys want to check it out and then we’ve got April 8th it’s through April 14th and yeah. I did a lot of like stuff for my brother week. I remember that or that weekend I should say yeah and then on April what was the April first yeah these two days April, 1st in April 2nd.

We had like a really bad snowstorm, so yay good thing. I can like work from home if possible, all right and then moving along. We have Monday April 15 through a Sunday April, 21st and yeah. I didn’t really do much. I had some training to deal with and I had a co-worker’s birthday on that Friday. So I stayed late to decorate and then you know who went off and did things wasn’t feeling so hot on the 20th, and so I slept so that’s great and then I planned on the 21st and then this I did nothing.

This is how some of the week’s look you guys like, I feel like it’s important for people to know that are like on Instagram or YouTube, or just any social media platform that, like your weeks, sometimes you just don’t do them you just don’t do it because You just don’t have time all right. You know I I’m trying to get away from saying you just don’t have time to you’re, just not making time for it and that’s like more truthful for me in my life than it is for anything else, and then the next one I’m going to show you Is a little aggressive, so here we go um.

This is my go wild week and there’s a ton of different stickers. I did work Monday and Tuesday. My mom came in from Florida. She was here to read the little Doyle dog while I was out plus she has her own home here and wanted to get that ready for her season so anyways. I have a lot of different things on here. There wasn’t this many things to begin with, because there was a few things I had to put in.

Like I don’t know other other stuff, I didn’t really know about. Plus you get so much swag at go wild and I will leave my go wild playlist up in a card for you guys, if you’re interested in reading some of that, but for all the things that are like kind of go wild related. I like to put those stickers on my go wild week, so this is my only like super, like kind of no white space planning a little bit, I mean it is here cuz I worked but but yeah.

So I don’t know it’s just cute and fun and why not – and I still don’t know the next year’s location – I’ve had so many questions about that. Don’t know they didn’t announce it this year. So I’m like chomping at the bit to know when it’s going to be and where it’s going to be. So where is usually the question that gets answered first and then when comes later, but maybe they’ll announce it all at once.

I mean who the heck knows. All right and then so we have May 6 through the 12th and this week sucked. So so I got back from go wild on this Sunday and then this Monday. I took off because I just knew that I wanted to spend some time with my mom and I had the day off and just to kind of like unpack and laundry and just get kind of my life back together. And then I went to work on Tuesday, which was awesome because it was our Taco Tuesday, so we did like a big potluck which is really really fun and then Wednesday morning I woke up and I was like death.

I was so incredibly sick turns out. I had the flu and that just really sucked and then Thursday morning, at 4:00 a.M. I had to take my mom to the airport, which was so much fun when I’m still sick and thankfully she was in the car with me to tell me where the heck to go, because I was just like so not. I don’t know alive so anyway. After that, I did stop in to work because it from the airport back to my home.

Work was on the way, so I just did a couple of things like super early in the morning. I think it was there like 5:15 or something I just worked for like an hour. I had to just get some paperwork filled out and do all that good stuff, and then I went back home and I went to bed. Oh, I actually went to the grocery store cuz. I needed more cold medicine and they’re open 24 hours in my area, so that was that was good and then Friday I was still super super sick yeah it just it just sucked so anyway, and then I mean I did a little planning.

I did some laundry. I organized my swag and then I love this little quote. It says it back the up, sprinkle tips today. It’s not that today, that’s kind of how I felt like the entire week and then I slept basically all day on Sunday Mother’s Day. I did call my mom and talk to her a little bit but yeah just not great, and then this is actually this week. So this is Monday May 13 through Sunday May 9.

I’m right here and yes, I did go to work on Monday and I think I pushed it a little too hard. So I did work a little bit on Tuesday and then I was working from home actually and then I just emailed my boss and one of my co-workers on my team and I’m like. I need to go home well or not. Go home but like go to sleep because I was already home, so I worked from home a little bit and yeah basically slept all day, and then I got my EC order that day, which was great, but I didn’t really do anything with it.

Anyways so, and then Wednesday was another sick day. Unfortunately, I got a simply gilded delivery, which was awesome, and I did a little bit of organizing in my closet, which was good, but you know it’s like it was the like all this sick time. It’s like takes so long to do like the most mundane things like taking a shower. You know normally takes like 5-10 minutes, not even and it’s like you’re in there for like 25 minutes, because it’s just like you’re moving like a sloth like I’m moving so slow.

But, yes, everything takes a lot longer anyway Thursday. I went to work. It wasn’t great, but I went anyway and it was fine and then on Friday went to work and that was good. I went to Trader Joe’s and KUB. I did a little face mask which was awesome and then yesterday was definitely a lazy day, and I love this and says if it requires the pants. It’s not happening. Basically, that’s like my entire weekend.

This weekend I got the laundry done. I updated some stuff in PayPal and I love this just go the to sleep because I had to take a nap and then I planned a little bit last night. I’m filming I need to edit a little bit and then I’m going to do some meal prep for the next week and then I do have a little bit on this week. So far, so I made this, I didn’t make this sticker. I should be more clear, but it was in one of those Erin Condren books and then I put the little the time is now on there.

I thought that was really cute. My co-workers still on vacation for these two days and then y’all Sunday May 26 is the favorite Mama’s birthday. So she is turning 70 and I won’t see her. Unfortunately, but then I will see her the following week, because her and my dad are going to be driving from Florida to Minnesota next, the the next week after this so yeah I’ll, give her a call. I know she’s got a couple of things going on that day, but yeah the favorite Mama’s going to be the big 700, but anyway, that is my week I or my weeks.

I wanted to just kind of share this with you guys. I know I haven’t been really good about, like taking pictures and stuff like that, which I totally should be, but I’m not, I think I need to just I don’t know, share some photos of this stuff. I don’t think I have so. I think I think it’s time to share some pics of this on the internet and tag who I can remember um. I will leave a link or not like not a link, but several links down below as to some of the sticker and washi shops that I have been using and loving in the previous spreads that I just showed you.

So I hope you guys go and check out some of those links. Also, there is a link down below actually there’s two links down below for the Erin Condren website. If you have never purchased from Erin Condren before there is a link down below for you. That says, first-timers get $ 10 off. You can use that link to sign up to create your own profile. Then Erin Condren. What com will end up? Sending you a couple of different emails.

One of the emails will actually be for $ 10 off of your first purchase and you don’t have to purchase a plan or you can purchase anything from there.

Donation Tracking 2018 | #ECLifePlanner

I wanted to share how I track my donations from my home. This is my tracker for 2018. This has been set up in my planner for a little while since 4:17 – and this is my 2018 – I had to think about it for a second. I’ve been doing a lot of articles for 2019. Currently – and this is my on-the-go life planner in the hourly layout – and these are just a couple of notes – pages that are in the back so like I said this has been set up for a little while this washi, I actually grabbed out my little bobbin.

This is from my shop if y’all are interested, the information is down below and these stickers, like the little flag stickers, are all from Erin Condren. If I remember right so what I like to do is I like to use the dash method for things? What I usually do is I just give this piece of paper or actually like give my whole planner to my text, professional and she figures out how much things are worth.

I know that if you do your own Texas, I think that there is a chart on. Maybe like TurboTax or some other online sources that are reputable, that you can actually see what the dollar amount is for things. These are like very generalized things if it’s like a really specific item that I know is worth a lot of money, like maybe like a crock-pot, would be more like I put like kitchen tools, because it’s like like serving spoons and whisks and egg timers, and, like Things like that, that you know a kitchen like it’s a kitchen tool, but if it was something bigger, like I said, like a crock-pot or something like that, that probably be worth a little bit more monetary value.

I would list that specifically so in the spring I did a big clean-out and that was on 417 for the Epilepsy Foundation, and these are all the items that I had donated actually just recently on July 31st, I had another pickup and you know you get these Little cards in the mail, I’m not going to show you the front side, because it has my under a sauna but yeah. So you know I just did another pick up and I’m going to just put in all the things that I donated, which are kind of similar to what I donated before, but there’s a couple little differences.

What I’m going to do is I’m going to just skip a line because it just makes my brain feel better and I’ll just put in the date that it was picked up. So it was picked up on the 31st and it the same foundation, the Epilepsy Foundation and I put in their web address. So you know, if I have questions or my tax professional has questions come tax time. We can always look that up. So let me write down all the things that I donated this time around.

Alright. So here are the items that I donated this time around, so I had two serving trays that I donated. I had one mixer like the little handheld mixer organizers. I had quite a few I had like 15, it wasn’t like 15, it was actually 15, so I’m going to put those in and then, as for baskets, I had six baskets. You know I’m a sucker for any good, organizer or basket, but I’m really trying to like trim down what I have keep all the really good stuff and the stuff that I know I’m going to be using again and just really going in and like purging things.

I had three pairs of shoes that I ended up donating and then I had a ton of pants randomly, so I had twelve pairs of pants so I’ll put that in and then I had a ton of tops like I don’t know what happens, but it’s like Every time I get one of these little cards, I’m like oh, I don’t really have too much. I’m like oh wait, never mind. I have a ton, so I have these big black, like you know those like big black, like leaf bags or whatever, like the garage bags, I’m like okay, I’m going to go around the house and see if I have anything I’m like.

Oh my gosh, I have so many things, so I don’t know what it is about tops, but I feel like I have like way too many, but it’s good to purge some of those too. So I know I had a ton of them last time and I had about the same amount this time, so I had 30 tops this time. I also denoted sweaters. I don’t know if that makes a difference, but for me I actually wrote it down. So I figured why not just do that as well, so I had six sweaters that I ended up donating and winter gear, so winter gear to me is like hats, mittens gloves anything you need like for the winter, so I actually had 12 hats.

They were actually unused and I was going to donate them to somewhere and then I totally forgot and they just sat in the back of my trunk forever in my car. So I was like you know what this is time to get rid of them, and then I had a bunch of officee items. I had some writing tools. I had some pads of paper. I had some filing system things. I also had a couple of other things. Like that would be kind of more office related, so I kind of lumped those all into one, because the value of the items were kind of around the same, but I had quite a few of the items, as I’m sure you could imagine.

So I am going to be putting in a lot of dashes here all right, so I had 27 office items, and that is all the things that I donated this time around. So that is how I have been tracking things in my 2018 planner. However, I do want to show you guys something that I showed in a previous article and I will link that up above it’s actually in my new planner. This is my new planner for 2019 and I got the it’s like the hardcover.

The lux cover in the colorful woven wonder pattern with the gold foil and the gold foil, and this is in the hourly version. I’ll show ya. This is the hourly version. I put the tape on there myself. Let me move this out of the way real quick, but I have been setting up like charts and different things in here, and I wanted to show you guys what I was working on and I did show this in a previous article and I believe it was My 2019 Erin Condren move in so I, if I haven’t already I’ll link it up in a card and I’ll link it down below, for you guys too.

So this is my monthly tracking for 2019. I took inspiration from Jen at Jen plans. I will leave her information up in a card and down below so check out her blog. If y’all are interested, I wanted to get more diligent about doing certain things and letting some tasks happen on a monthly basis. Some of these, you don’t need every single month, but I’ll just go through the list, really quick and then I’ll kind of talk about the donation part in just a moment.

So I have budget wash bedding and blank kids. Wash windows clean out, fridge, clean out freezer clean out, pantry clean out garage air filter that doesn’t need to be done every month in my home, but it’s good to have that in there culligan service test smoke detectors again, not every month, but that’s all right. Organized files, donations, which is we’re going to talk about in a moment, toothbrush facemask, clean out car car wash and oil change.

So there’s a few different items on here that are going to really help me with my donations for next year and I’m going to be setting up something really similar to this in this planner. So but I think I’ll just wait until that happens. I don’t know. I’m not really sure how that’s going to work washing all of my bedding in blankets. I mean I wash my bedding all the time but like the blankets, it’s like all the blankets that are downstairs on the sofa and all the blankets that are in every other room that maybe dog hair gets on and things like that.

So if there’s issues with any of the blankets say that they’re getting a little bit dingy – and maybe my style has changed – maybe there’s like a little rip or something like that in them, then I can decide if I want to put that possibly towards my donations. If they’re worth recycling, there might be a time where it’s just garbage, I mean I don’t know, but that’s going to really help me with my donations and then also cleaning out the garage.

That is also going to help me with my donations as well, because a lot of times things go into the garage to die like there’s, there’s so many things in my home that I’m, like, oh I’ll, put it in the garage I’ll like deal with it later. I have so many things right now currently that are in my garage that I’m like I haven’t even opened up that cardboard shipping box. I should probably do that, like I literally haven’t done it, so I think it’s about time to deal with things.

So if I’m dealing with things on a monthly basis, then I know hey, I’m not using this or hey, maybe I’ll keep it for another month and then, if I you know say it’s in April and then I’m in May and I’m like you know what I’ve Waited a month, I don’t even like the item anymore or it’s not working for me any longer, it’s time to go into the donation bin. So I’m going to be doing that for next year, pretty diligently and then ask for donations.

I’m not necessarily going to donate something every single month. But I think, what’s going to be awesome is that I will have a system to look at and visualize and make sure that I’m actually doing what I’m supposed to be doing when it comes to donations. Also in my garage I’m going to be setting up like I have a bunch of those like big sturla, I think they’re Sterlite bins and I use them in my crawlspace for organization.

If you guys are interested in which ones I got I’ll link it up in a card or not in a card I’ll link it down below. I’m sorry and I use them for all my like holiday, decorations, storage and all of my, like other miscellaneous storage, and I have a couple of extra bins. There’s like just sitting in my garage. So I think I’m going to keep those bins in the garage and have them for donations and then, once I come across an item in my home that either isn’t working for me or maybe the fit, isn’t right on the clothing item anymore or the shoes.

I’m just not into any longer or whatever it is. I can just put it in that bin and the next time I get one of these cards right here then I can either call them for pickup or I can drop stuff off at my local thrift store or something like that, and then I can clearly denote In my tracker, what I’m donating and when I’m donating it and where I’m donating it to so, I really feel like this is going to keep me on task and keep me on track for 2019.

I mean 2018 we’re more than halfway through, but I’m probably going to have more donations, but it’s just nice to kind of go through things and if it’s like, if something isn’t working for you pass it along to somebody that it will work for or just donate It because someone else is hopefully going to buy it from that organization and they will receive funds for your donations. Oh and if y’all are wondering, I don’t have little boxes here, because I ran out of the right color of stickers.

I actually just got a shipping notification. I think it was today saying that my package was on its way, so I just ran out of stickers, but they will be full by the time in 2019. Happens. Alright. So this is it for my article to show how I’m tracking donations for 2018. I would be so interested to know how you guys track your donations. Do you have like an app? Do you write it down like I do to have like a spreadsheet on Excel? How do you track your donations for the year so tax time? It becomes a little bit easier to muddle through all the paperwork.

Let me know in the comments down below what works for you and your family. That is going to be it for me today feel free to thumbs up the article if you liked, it also feel free to subscribe. If you want to be part of the fde a family, and you can hit that little red Bell notification, if you want to be alerted when I get new articles up for you guys but yeah, that’s it hope. You guys are having a wonderful day and I’ll see you in the next one bye guys well folks, it’s time to kick it old school

Weekly Planner Spreads | August 2019

I know I really don’t do plant with me type articles anymore. I will link my playlist up above if you would like to read you know. What’s been giving me a lot of planner piece recently is just kind of filling it in when I get home and making it really work. For me, if y’all are interested, I am using an Erin Condon condon, an Erin Condren, binder system.

This year. I have the Navy cover and I chose the hourly colorful version and I really like that you can. You know, take these pages out and stuff like that. Like it’s super helpful, you know when you’re trying to decorate – or you know when I’m right-handed. So if I’m trying to write something on here, like I don’t bump into this, I can just pop this little sucker out. So it’s really actually helpful for me so anyway, let’s talk about this week, so this week is July 29 through August 4, and this was a pretty alright week did a bunch of stuff and my mom and I were kind of getting stuff ready for Niagara Falls, Which you’ll actually see in this like planner, I guess you’re not going to actually see Niagara Falls in the article.

I’m sorry, if you guys want to see the Niagara Falls, article I’ll link it for you guys, so we chatted about it. On Monday, we already had this plan like last year and then I got the hotel booked and everything, so it kind of like figured out a plan, and then you know we kind of just like went from there. I’ve been having some problems recently. Unfortunately, some health issues, so I have been working from home.

It’s like digestive stomach problems, so you’ll, probably guys, will learn more about that in September, because I have some more doctor’s appointments and stuff scheduled that I need to take care of. So anyway. I’ve been working from home a lot recently because of that, because you know my just had to be close to a bathroom which is gross, but it’s part of life. You know also on the third, I went to Ryan’s apartment with Doyle and we had a great time and Doyle now owns his apartment.

So anyway, so that’s a good time. Oh and then I also released my ticket information for my 20 year high school reunion, which is coming up this October. So it’s coming up really darn fast. So anyway, that was this week and then we get into the week of the 5th through the 11th, and this was an OK ish week. I actually, on Monday, had hail damage on my vehicle at work, so that was interesting, went to girls night with my friends and we wouldn’t had well tacos.

I don’t know. I think I just had rice. I can’t remember anyway, and then the next day I made my hail claim with my insurance company and doing all that good stuff. The next day I had a migraine, so I had these are my little migraine. People things anyways, so that was kind of a crummy day. On the next day I had to work from home because you know my well stickers. I worked on my packing list that evening and I wrapped up a gift for a friend, and then this was a really bad day.

It was a sick day. My mom came over to help me with some things and tried to sleep. Couldn’t do it my brother? Actually came over later on that day cuz he had to pick up some mail, but the nice thing about that Jay was my friend’s daughter was born. Charlotte was born that day at 9:29, so it was very exciting and then the next day I did some laundry. I made my collab list: the actually the wild for planners sale is going on right now, but this article is going to go up probably way after this, but I was making kind of my list and then I took a nap because clearly I wasn’t feeling of The day before and started to pack my bags and then I went to the twins game for a little while we didn’t stay the whole time.

But we went to the twins game for a little while and then I did some meal prep, so yeah and then the next week, I’m actually in Niagara Falls. I had to contact my doctor about my problems, so I need to talk to him about test stomach issues migraines and my prescription refills, so we’ll get into that in the next week. This I worked from home these two days because I just was not able to deal that makes sense.

Then, on Wednesday I actually was in to the office that day, which is great Rand at the post office, and then I went to Ryan’s apartment to drop off little Doyle dog, because Doyle was hanging out with Ryan from a man with the plans for the weekend. So that was fun. My mom and I left on Thursday morning bright and early and drove to New York, but the we actually stayed in Ohio on Thursday and then we basically after lunch, we got to Niagara Falls.

Our check-in was at like 2:30 or 3:00 or something – and we got there like right at that time, so it worked out great. So we actually went to like a little Niagara Falls movie, which I totally recommend. We had some Chinese food that night and then we went up on this. Like looking pier area. I don’t know what that’s called is probably totally wrong, but we readed the light, show and fireworks which is really cool and then the next day it actually rained.

Quite a bit in the morning and then we went over to Canada. We went to a really great Italian restaurant called mamma mias, which was wonderful. It was recommendation from one of you guys and then you know, did a bunch of other little adventures in Canada and then came back. And then we went on me to the mist I got super burnt and then for dinner. We had went to Hard Rock and then on Sunday morning we started driving back to Minnesota.

So we just drove – and I just put in like food stuff because it was just like that’s all we did and then we stopped in Illinois for the evening and then our tolls total from like the beginning to the end, was 74 dollars and 40 cents. We should have just flew there anyway, so now with this week, which we’re in this is today we drove for part of the day, and then I picked up toil kind of later on in the afternoon.

It was about three four somewhere in there, so I was able to stop by Ryan’s apartment, which was kind of on our way home, and he and then I unpacked did a little bit of laundry and that was kind of my Monday and then on Tuesday went To work, which was great all that good stuff and then I went to Abra to get a Hale estimate and all that good stuff, and I had to email acuity, which is the insurance company that I have once I got the estimate and then the next day.

Unfortunately, I had to work from home again I did have an appointment with my doctor and we have a bunch of things that we are now going to be dealing with yeah. So then my mom and I actually went to Applebee’s that evening and then I had to go to Walgreens to pick up a prescription next day I worked from home as well, and then I had to make a consultation appointment for a surgery I need to have, And then I also this was the first day of the wild collab sale, which is right here and we’re currently in it.

There are a bunch of shops that I shopped at right away, and then there are a few today that I am going to shop as well, because I just can’t help myself plus I’ll, be doing a haul for you guys to the next day I had my Culligan service come into my home. They just come into my home a couple of times a year and maintain my unit and things like that. So they do that when I’m not home or sometimes I am home, but whatever they know how to get in, went to lunch with some co-workers and then helped out.

My HR person, with some false store apparel items, ran to Target to get some groceries and such, and then I got sick that night again, so that was no bueno. The next day I actually got my acuity check from here from my estimate so figured that out. So I ran to the bank and did my deposit. I also went to Walgreens cuz. I had another pickup and then there was a planner meet up at the maple grove library which I went to, and then I went to Olive Garden with Ryan, from a man with the plans and then today this is this morning.

I had to place an amazon order. There was just a couple things I was missing. I was supposed to be going to a brunch with the Minnesota trio, which is Ryan from a man with the plans and Jodi from life’s organized chaos. I will leave their blogs down below for you guys if you want to check them out, because you totally should how ever Jodie’s plans changed. She has been doing a ton of traveling for work and she had to leave a little bit earlier than expected.

So we were going to reschedule that, so it’s been we maybe sometime in September that we will get together. I had to drop off things at the lab and you can see what that is. Um part of the doctor thing and then today I am filming. Look at this, I can do this um. I already did my sublet guilded subscription box, my September budget. I actually just filmed, and my August spreads that’s what I’m doing right now so yay so anyway.

That is it for this article. I hope you guys enjoyed seeing all of my spreads for the month of August in 2019. I know I’m not really doing the plan with meas anymore, but I just really enjoy coming home and just filling in stuff or things I know about or whatever it’s just like really helpful for me and if you guys are interested, I will link up in the Corner my what’s, it called my planner piece of article.

I really talked about kind of the groove and what I’m doing this year and how it’s helping me quite a bit so anyway, I will leave that up there for y’all, but anyway I am going to get to publishing no uh-huh, taking this footage and putting it In my computer and I’ll probably be doing a little bit of editing this evening, not sure when this article is going to go up, but it’ll go up a fairly soon for you guys, hopefully within the next week or two, and also I need to do a Little bit more shopping today before the wild, collab sale ends so anyway, that’s it for me.

Plan With Me | Alaska Back Planning | #ECLifePlanner

I am planning in my planner alert the cheers. We are actually working on something that I have been dreading doing, because it’s going to take a long time and I’m hoping it won’t be too long for you guys that I can edit this thing down a little bit, we’ll see how the editing goes. I’m not sure how exactly this is all going to work out, but, as many of you know, I went to an Alaskan cruise month or so we’ll go a little more than a month ago and I didn’t bring.

I brought my planner, but I didn’t bring my planner supplies because I wasn’t like 100 % sure what we were going to be doing and all that good stuff. So what I did is, I actually took my Erin Condren, like sticky notes, and so I have a bunch of little sticky notes denoting what we did and when we did it – and I was in Vancouver from June 19 and then we went back to Minneapolis on Really really late Sunday June 1st, but we didn’t actually get back until the 2nd.

So my goal today is to back plan this and the rest of this. So let’s get started here. I did get a bunch of these things which there’s a huge mess off camera for you guys so yay. I got a bunch of these things if you guys readed my Alaska haul, like all the things I got in Alaska, I’ll, throw it up in a card for you guys if you want to check it out, but I am going to be hopefully using a bunch Of these in the planner here, but I’m not sure how it’s all going to work out and then I did at one of the gift shops find this washi tape.

It won’t pull these out real quick and I don’t think I’m going to use the Northern Lights. One, but I might use these other ones. This is like the totem, poles that say Alaska on it, and this is just like some naturey looking ones. I don’t think I’m going to talk through this, because it’s going to be way too long. If I like ramble on about things, let’s just speed up this footage right now, all right, so I am finally done this took way too long, but I’m very happy to share with you guys all the fun things I did so.

The things I put in I’ll just talk about so when I got to Vancouver, I attempted to sleep for about an hour. I, like didn’t sleep overnight as a whole, long thing, if you guys want to read the vlogs if I haven’t linked it up in a card already, I will do so now and I will link the vlogs down below. We also decided to go shopping afterwards, actually hold on. We had some dinner before and I think we all had like burgers.

So, let’s put a little burger in there. Why not right, and then on Wednesday that was our cruise day, so we’ve gotten the cruise and then we unpacked also the Minnesota planner events planner buying out the Minnesota planner event summer event went on sale that day so Jodi over at life’s organized chaos bought my Ticket for me, so I paid her for that next day we were at sea, we played some bingo, there was also a lumberjack in the area and he did a little demonstration on the ship and let me put in a little, you know thing, you know what I mean we went to an art auction.

The only reason we went is because it was free champagne that, like by the way it wasn’t that good, but whatever it was free and then I’m late into that evening. My mom and I went and got a manicure. The next day we were at the Inside Passage in Alaska and Ketchikan, and then I used this washi tape. It’s a crafting tape. It’s like more, like a paper tape. So I’m not sure I don’t know if I’m going to put this up in my shop as samples cuz, it would get like very warped if that makes sense.

So I’m not sure about that and then we went to the totem Brite State Park. I used a little Alaska sticker, we also went to the lumberjack show and then we were at Ketchikan. After that we went on sea. Then we woke up in Juneau. We went to the rainforest garden, the Mendenhall Glacier, which I have a really pretty sticker from also we went to the State Museum and on the we went to a comedy, show the next day we were in Skagway Alaska.

We went on the White Pass Railroad and then we actually went into Canada for a little while and then after that we went into the red onion. We also went to Liars ville and had a salmon bake and gold panning later on. In that afternoon we went and got some ice cream, and then we were at sea and then the next week on Monday we were at sea. We did some laundry. Actually, my mom and aunt did laundry. I didn’t do any of the laundry I was attempting to sleep because of the snoring issue.

We were in Glacier Bay, so I got a lot of really great photos. Then I did some editing because we were at sea. I also participated in a fashion show and we got some like more formal photos taken that you would kind of see in the vlogs if you readed the vlogs, and then there was a musical on the on the ship and it was called encore. The next day. We were at sea, I did a little ship tour for my vlog.

I just put this little Alaska sticker green because I thought it was cute. We went to bingo and then we had a packing party and the next morning we woke up in Anchorage. We took a train ride over to Talca Tina and then we also spent some time there and then we ended up in a mount mckinley princess Wilderness Lodge the next day. We were still in the Mount McKinley princess wilderness lodge, we went on a hike and then we went to the Denali princess wilderness lodge after that I tried to upload there, but the internet was not strong enough, so I just wrote an upload failed.

The next morning we woke up in Denali Alaska. Again we went on an amazing national park tour that was probably one of my favorite things that we did on land. It was absolutely amazing, after that we had lunch, and then my favorite mama reads comments. My mom’s Q & A posted that day, so, if you guys, are interested in reading the favorite mama Q & A, I will link it up in a card for you guys and it was really sweet.

The comments that you guys had for her and she responded back to a lot of you guys there. We also went to a local place, called the bake that night and then the next day we traveled to Fairbanks, and we went on this riverboat tour and there was like a 40 degree below experience where you just went in a meat locker and like stood in There, for a minute it was kind of cool. It was actually that bad me being from Minnesota.

It was like, oh that’s kind of refreshing, and then we had an extensively loud dinner. It was pretty horrible, but whatever we got to put it in the planner, you know, and then we had a packing party. Then we traveled to of Fairbanks or sorry we were already in Fairbanks. Sorry, I’m getting my Awards mixed up. Today we did a little traveling downtown. We went to this visitor center and I actually put this Northern Lights washi in there, because we readed a like little show about the Northern Lights, which is really cool.

My mom and I went to a cemetery cuz. That’s like her favorite thing to do in the world. I put this cute little Alaska sticker in there and then we took an airport shuttle and we went back to Minneapolis. I did not do anything over here. Cuz, that’s just a whole long thing, but anyway that is going to be it for me today. I will link all the sources of all the stickers that I used the like stickers that I got on my vacation.

I won’t be able to source because I’m not sure where they’re from but any planner stickers that I used, I will link down below as well as the writing utensils that I used as well hope you guys enjoyed the article sorry if it was kind of long. I’m going to try to clip this up and make it not super long for you guys, but if you like this article make sure to give it a thumbs up feel free to subscribe, and I will see you all in the next one bye guys.

Well folks. It’s time to kick it old-school.

Sorry, I’ve been a little m.I.A but dealing with some health problems and all that good stuff. If you guys want to see all of that good stuff, you can check out my last vlog tober series, because I did vlog every day in the month of October, which is what we’re going to talk about so like regular content.

Articles have not really been happening, but I figured I would sit down today and do this and share with you guys what I have been doing in the month of October, since I don’t really do like normal plan with me articles any longer. I like to kind of recap at the end of the month. What really works for me is laying down all the things that I know is going to be happening. So, like my work laundry, you know trash day if I have like an appointment or whatever that really helps me out and then, when I get home I kind of decompress and then I put in anything else that was kind of like happening that day.

This is my first week of October, so we have September 30th through the 6th and lots of fun. Things happened this week, the location for the new goal unit, the new the next go. Wild conference was announced it’s going to be in Anaheim, California, which I’m very excited about. I also went dairy-free this week right here. You can see. I went three four actually to the Saturday and Sunday as well, but that didn’t change any of my medical things so anyway we’re trying some stuff, but so yeah, but then um.

I requested my time off that day for the actual wild. You know they are the wild sale, I’m sorry, the wild planner convention and I had to call and make a bunch of appointments this week for some future surgery, I’m going to be having which I still haven’t had yet and then on the fifth that I actually Had my high school reunion, which was really really fun, I am one of the organizers, so I’ve got there a little bit earlier than you know normal and had a really really great time, seeing other people and we had like really good mix of people too.

So it was really really fun. I did leave a little bit early. I’ve been struggling with migraines um, that’s part of all of this health problems and I just had to leave a little bit earlier and – and I woke up with migraine so yeah alright. So, let’s go on to the next week, so here we are looking at October 7 through the 13 through the 13 during the turn 13 sorry, I wanted to use some of my simply gilded stickers in this spread.

Also, this washi is from simply gilded as well. I get like the simply gilded boxes. I do hauls on those, so if you’re interested feel free to go back on my blog and check those out so this week, I did have to work from home a couple of days. That is because of migraines so yeh. This I actually didn’t work the whole morning and then I worked later on in the afternoon did a little car repair action every time I do every time I have actually have like a payday, I always put usually in the sunday morning.

Cuz I sleep in um. I usually put like what bills I have to pay, even though I’ll sometimes pay them other days. But I like to kind of do that just to like remind myself what’s going on and then I uploaded a bunch of articles and took a nap because I had a migraine, woohoo, so yeah and then I gave myself a manicure that actually looks kind of like This one, but it’s not – this – is like a like. A burgundy knive got this on today.

It’s really overcast outside, so the natural light is showing a little bit of a different color, but this is more of a purple anyway. Alright, so, and then this is October 14 through the 20th. This was actually supposed to be my surgery week for my first surgery, which was removing my fallopian tubes, and that didn’t happen. Unfortunately, on Monday I got a call from my surgeon’s office saying that she had a family emergency and she could not perform my surgery and I’m supposed to be on this Thursday.

So I had to call my mom because she was flying in and was going to fly in this day, so it got all sorts of screwed up so anyway, it’s already happened now, but you guys won’t see that spread. I don’t think you’re going to see. No, you won’t see that spread until November, so anyways, but that was kind of a little bit of an issue and glad we got it figured out. But oh man, that kind of sucked and it kind of pushed everything else back pretty far.

Unfortunately, but you know I’m just I’m just doing what I can so on Monday night I went out with some of my girlfriends. We went and had some delicious Mexican food and on Tuesday I had a hair appointment, which was great, and you know just just lots of fun things. I ended up picking a winner for a giveaway that I had had. I worked from home this day because migraine no fun and yeah lots of lots of no funds.

Like a bottom migraine, a lot of my grand I cleaned a little bit there. Oh no good, I don’t like migraines and then this I didn’t even finish out this week. You guys was just like over it um anyways. So now we are in October 21 through the 27th, which is the last weekly spread of this planner. Oh by the way, I’m using the Erin Condren hourly planner in the binder version in the colorful way, there’s like a colorful and a neutral, but I like the colorful, so anyways um.

This week I had two yeah two migraines good times, and even though I had a payday here – and I have my bills here – I did pay them, even though I did not check them off so anyway. This week was just not a good week, and I just you know, sometimes you just don’t feel like completing the day or whatever I don’t know. Sometimes it’s just not sometimes is not in the cards to finish out your week or finish out the day and be like you know what I don’t know it’s been so long now I don’t even know what happened so I’m not going to go back and like Post planet or whatever, but I think yep that is the last thing and also onion.

I know some of you readed my budgeting articles. I didn’t even do a budget for November um. I think what I’m going to do is just kind of quickly skip November and I’ll do a December one for y’all, because it is what the twenty-something, what the 24th of November and no one cares to see a November budget that late. So I think I want to do is do a December one for y’all, but anyway, that is it. For my October walkthrough of my weekly spreads in Erin Condren life planner.

I hope you guys enjoyed the article if you did make sure to give it a thumbs up, feel free to subscribe. And if you guys are seeing this around Black Friday, Cyber Monday make sure to click the Erin Condren link down below, because a little birdie told me that they’re going to be having a good sale, I might be shopping.

That is it. 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, it’s time to kick it old-school.

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.

If you see me feel free to come up and say hello, I don’t know what you look like. So hopefully you know what I look like from all the instagrams and Facebook’s and articles that I’ve done over the years. But if you see me come say, hi we’ll take a selfie, we’ll chat for a little bit and I hope that you all decide to come. If that’s something that you’re interested in, I went for the first time last year and I had so so much fun.

I am very, very excited about that and yeah. I hope to see you all there.

Neighborhood was just like a flutter with things and then I just paid a bunch of bills and then we get to with a sixteenth through the 22nd. So this is where the first, I don’t know, they call it a surgery, but just cuz. They like put you under, but it’s more of like a procedure.

I had an endoscopy which basically means that they put you to sleep and they put a tube down your throat as well as a camera and see what the hell’s go going on. So what happened? Was it took a bunch of biopsies? Everything came back pretty normal or as they expected it to come back, but I also have a hiatal hernia, which that just means that there is part of my stomach. That’s creeping up into like places.

It shouldn’t. Be and pressing on my like chest, cavity wall kind of, and that’s why I feel that chest pressure and that chest pain quite frequently so, like my stomach, is going places it shouldn’t go basically, so I am in the midst of getting that fixed. I don’t have any updates of when that’s going to happen, but that is what they found out. So this was pretty whatever about normal a week. I guess and then in the morning I did work from home.

I didn’t have to go in until noon that day. So then, I just kind of wrote out on here all the things that I could do before I went in so I could have oatmeal at 6:00 a.M. Or by 6:00 a.M. I had to stop all clear liquids by 10:00 a.M. And then at 10:00 a.M. They wanted me to drink 12 to 20 ounces of Gatorade and then be done with it by 10:00, so yeah and then a hiatal hernia, that’s what they found out.

So my mom stayed over that night and then she left about noon the next day. Um you know cuz. I had to have a responsible adult with me um. I did work from home this day because I couldn’t drive for 24 hours after being put under, but we did a ticket giveaway at work and it was also national pepperoni pizza day, so they had pizza over there. So I just worked from home and then I was so tired. I took a nap so yeah and then Saturday you took another nap, but I was so tired, like the next day.

It wasn’t too bad in the morning, but man at like 24 hours afterwards. It’s just like like hit me, I don’t know um yeah and then I had a frog came in my house. That was exciting. It was really really stormy and rainy the whole weekend or likely it’s that morning and a frog decided to come and seek refuge inside of my house. So I was like oh nope you’re, going to go back outside little friends. Izumo anyway, move some boxes out to the garage for my brother.

I had another migraine. Yeah I feel like this is just like Emily’s medical history, yay, so yeah and then um you know, did a bunch of things. Added articles and brother came up to pick up. All of his stuff and then went out to dinner with my parents and brother that evening, and then we are into this week, which today is the 29th. So this week was me I mean I don’t know, there’s just so much going on, which is weird because I normally have like a very simple life, but I’ve got a lot of medical crap going on so Monday.

I actually stayed till 7 o’clock, which is why I have my nice little peanut butter, taco sticker. That says it so I was just trying to get this order out and it just took so long. I was just a pain and I but um I had to stop at Walgreens, because I had a medication change that I had to deal with and then the next day. Okay, so my brother drove to Iowa, like he actually lives in Iowa, so moved all of his stuff and then went to Iowa ID email.

My doctor, I got a flu shot and had to go to Walgreens again because they did more think it’s the whole thing. This medication wasn’t right so then they gave me a new medication. I had a migraine, unfortunately, and read this as us: oh so good you guys so that was fun and then regular work went to a meeting with some friends and my mom came over and walked the dog cuz. She was just over here and, let’s see, oh, my friend Kristin her birthday was on the 26th.

I worked from home. Actually, both of these days, I was planning on working from home this day, anyways, because I had a doctor’s appointment at 4:00 and it was just a pre-op, but we needed to talk about my hernia results and all of that stuff, so they said like hey. Can we give you a call if anything opens up in the day, and I said yeah – that’s not a problem, so I was going to plan on working from home here.

Unfortunately, again chest pain, same thing went to the grocery store later on that night, and I was reading some Netflix more migraine migraine good times, uh-huh Walgreens again and on that evening I did some laundry posted. My budget did some name tags for my upcoming high school reunion. That’s coming up, which is exciting. I did some cleaning yesterday, so I cleaned my entryway closet. My brother has had stuff in there for a year now so now that he’s moved he’s going to heat.

One to Iowa, I was able to revamp that a little bit, so I was able to clean it out declutter everything I actually decluttered a little bit in my closet too. So I have to UM like garbage bags full of stuff that I’m going to be taking a donation. Probably sometime this week I was planning on going to the grilled cheese, a festival in Minneapolis with Ryan from him with the plans. However, his plans changed and then earlier in the week we were texting and I’m like you know what I’m having so many issues with my stomach and digestion.

I just don’t think that’s a good thing and I can’t really be drinking alcohol with, like all the weird medications I’m on so and like the tickets, we hadn’t even purchased the tickets yeah, but the tickets came with like the booze and then like a tasting thing From the vendors and I was like yeah, it’s probably a better idea, just I cancel it and so he’s like. Okay, sorry, I just didn’t want to like leave you hanging, I’m like no, I think it’s best for everybody, so he actually ended up going out of town, which was great so anyway.

Today is Sunday. I paid a bunch of bills. I have oh, I still kind of have a migraine, but it’s better. Now Doyle has had diarrhea all day, which has been a very interesting. Thankfully he hasn’t messed in the house, but I don’t know what he got into, but I made him some rice and he’s on the mend, but yeah I’ve been trying to lay down and it’s just like, not working, and so I’m filming right now.

Weekly Planner Spreads | July 2019

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.
