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.

Teacher Lesson Planner 2019/2020 | Erin Condren #ECSquad

Thank You, Torian Sam and the team over it Erin Condren for sending all of these goodies to me when you are reading this. It is teacher lesson planner day launch day, so all the links are going to be below if you would like to check them out. So I haven’t opened this yet I just opened up the box.

Cuz y’all don’t need to know my address, but in the very top it has some of these new kaleidoscope pattern. I haven’t seen these yet so I’m very excited about that. So this is happy everything. It’s like the little post, it post it no post card and then these seals I always keep the seals. I rarely keep these just because I don’t really use them, but love that they come in the new pattern, and this is all the teacher stuff, I’m so jazzed.

Okay, let me try to take this all out and then we’ll like go from there. Oh, my gosh, so much Bilbo Reb. Oh all, right, move The Box out of the way we look at all that. Oh, it’s so cute! Alright, let’s open this bad boy up! Oh wow! Look at all the goodies! Okay, let’s go through this one by one! So I have seen people already post about this on Instagram and blogs, and things like that. I will leave some links down below if you guys want to see, maybe what some other people got or other people’s thoughts on certain things, so anyways um.

This is the plan T pack, and this is in a pattern that came out last year. I believe it does have that metallic mist to it and it’s got a gold zip, which I love. You can see it a little bit better if you guys want to know the actual size. It is a 5.25 by eight inches yeah, it’s so cute. I just think these are so much fun. I will show it on the planner and in just a few minutes. Next up we have this metallic washi tape duo and it’s 216 foot rolls.

I pull this out for y’all, so you can see it. I have heard that this is actual washi tape and not the paper tape that has happened in years past. Oh yeah, it’s actual washi tape, oh yeah, yeah cool! Oh I’m excited for that. Okay, those are really cute. These are like the little watercolor apples with the asterisks inside of them. Also, these are apples with asterisks inside of them too, but they’re, just like the gold foil they’re.

So nice, okay, love these. This is so cute. I know last year I think in the last couple of years, they’ve actually had the stylized sticky notes in a like teacher or student version, and I love that this one is so kind of plain. You can make it your own, and this has like a long to-do list which is kind of awesome, too little stickies and then like a big circle. This one says: don’t forget, and you know a smaller little box here and then this would just like the little paperclip I feel like anyone could use these.

That’s really nice and I will show these in the planner in just a moment. I’m just kind of like putting the things up to the side, and then this is a petite journal, but I’ve seen the inside of this, and I think it’s really interesting so like let’s take a peek at it. It is in the hexagon pattern, which I always think is like the bumblebee pattern, because it looks like honeycomb, but in the gold foil it says successful people are simply those with successful habits.

Those like a habit, tracker, so yeah and then this would fit in your on-the-go folio if you have that off camera hold on. I have this. This is like my little monthly planner for 2019 that I love. They are the exact same size. So if you have a petite planner, you could totally use this or you could just like very easily slip this into your bag or whatever. But I like that it is small and cute, and it’s got that metallic foiling.

I hope you guys can see that sometimes on camera things look a little funky so anyway, this is so cool all right and then it’s like all trackers y’all like this is kind of Awesome. So if you’re someone that likes to track anything in your life, you don’t have to be a student, you don’t have to be a teacher. This would be amazing. It also has like a little dotted line. It’s not perforated, but it is a dotted line.

So if you want to keep the same habits but then like every single week like tear off the page, you totally could and then it is on the opposite side as well, which is great because then you’re like utilizing all the papers. So I love that and I love that there are seven of these. You could use them for every single day of the week or whatever. But this is, I don’t know what I’m going to use this for, but I feel like I could use this for something good.

I don’t know, but I feel like I could, but anyway but yeah you could fill it up with as many habits trackers whatever. But you could track anything in here which is awesome. You could even do this for like some of your finances and stuff like that, would be pretty awesome. I don’t know just you could use so many things for this, so I’m really pumped about this little book here and then next we have the designer sticker book classroom collection, edition 3.

This is like their normal sticker books. Last year they had the like the pad that kind of like opened up, and I have that – and I love that – and I still use it from time to time, because you know I work in an office. So I think it’s great for anyone in an office. But let’s look up the school stuff. These are pretty. I just really like this kind of like underlay, of like this tone on tone. I don’t know I’m just like a huge fan.

These are nice this I like this. If you all know me and have seen any of my plan with me articles and I’m sorry, I haven’t been like posting them, but I actually have a plan with me article coming up this week. So like stay tuned, it’s going to be like a different plan with me, but anyways y’all know that I don’t track. I mean I track things, but I’m not like a habit tracker person in my planner like I don’t track my water and I don’t track.

You know spending in my personal planner and like the things that I show on the Internet, I don’t know, but I think this would be so cute. I don’t know why, like this sings to me for some reason, mmm so yeah, I don’t know. I saw this on someone’s post. I think it was gen McIntosh. I saw this on one of her post and I was like. I need all of those. I don’t know why, but I need them, so this would even be cute like on your monthly cuz.

It has like five columns so sometimes there’s five weeks in a month. That would be really cool like track if you’re wan na know track something for other months. Oh no, I just thought. Okay, I’m going to stop talking about that page and then now we have some metallic apples and some like little tabby things. Some of these things you probably wouldn’t use so like I probably wouldn’t use like 50th day a hundredth day and last day.

Unless I don’t know somehow, I was tracking something like personal for myself. Most of these you can totally use like reminder. I can use that assembly – probably not but maybe conference, maybe a field trip. I probably wouldn’t use important. Definitely I could use and take note. Definitely I can use, and then there are some really cute little flags, and this has like a little paperclip metallic on there, so nice, and then these are just days of the week, which was very cool ooh.

I saw this and I was like yes please. These are transparent, so you can put them in the planner which is kind of cool or mean you could put them anywhere, but yeah, and then we’ve got some washi strips and then this I’m excited about, because I have used a bunch of these in the old Sticker book and I’m really glad that it have more now, because I you know I am one of the people in my office that actually doesn’t go to a lot of meetings.

I mean there’s like multiple meetings a day for people and I’m so thankful that I don’t have to go to all the meetings, because I’m kind of like an intermediary, someone that doesn’t have to deal with like the pre-planning stuff and someone that doesn’t have to deal With like the end of the order stuff, I’m kind of in the middle, so I don’t have too much to do with having a meeting of the minds of thing, but there are some things I have to do for meetings, but I love these stickers.

I think they’re so pretty. I love the colors this year, so nice here’s another transparent sheet with some different icons, which is really nice another transparent sheet – and you know some of these – have like rapport. Do after school break no school like all. These are break-in no school like it probably wouldn’t use those, but there is like a staff meeting. I could use that to do report. Do I could use that? Sometimes we do testing, which is actually something I do don’t forget and then like a bunch of icons and just cute little things.

So that is the sticker book, I’m so excited and then next up we have the metallic mini snap-in bookmarks. I was super confused when I did my life planner launch day article. I hope, throw it up in a card for you guys. My thing said metallic and it wasn’t metallic, but this one is metallic, so I don’t know. I just think it was like different packaging that it was in because I was like they’re not metallic, but it says metallic, I’m confused, so anyways umm.

So there is a three-set here. We’ve got like the teal. We’ve got like a darker Navy and then we’ve got a like. I don’t know, I don’t think it’s red. I think it’s more of that pink, it’s more like this color here, but these are so nice. I love these. These are like my favorite favorite thing for cutting washi, and then we have. This teacher weekly dashboard says clip it in check it off plan it out.

Well, okay, then alright, and then we have a Monday through Sunday Saturday. I don’t know I need to open this. Hang on, I swear like half of the footage is always me just like opening things. Oh cool, alright, so you’ve got Monday Tuesday, Wednesday Thursday Friday, and then you have a Saturday and Sunday and then you have a before school after school. This would be great for just anyone that has kids.

To be honest, you could do like your meal plans and like before school after school, chores or tasks that they need to get done before. Like you know, parents get home and all that kind of stuff. That’s cool and then you’ve got kind of six little sections here and it says: forget the mistakes. Remember the lessons in like a very light, lined right here. So you know if you have notes about upcoming things or whatever.

I think this would be really nice, and this is life planner sighs, so it clearly would fit in a regular. You know Erin Condren life planner, which I actually have my Erin Condren life planner for 2019 2020 right here and I could easily just snap this sucker in I’m not going to do it at the moment. But I could do it all right. Here’s the piece de resistance, let me clear some stuff out of the way and then and then we’ll get to it, y’all all right here it is oh, this is so beautiful.

Okay, first off the teacher lesson planners are larger than the regular life planner and let me show you the difference. It also comes with this awesome bookmark, which also came with this planner as well, so I’m going to just do edge on edge. This is the sizing difference. So if you are interested, that’s the difference, the coil, I don’t know it seems a little bit yeah. The coil feels like it’s a little bit bigger.

Let’s see if you guys can see yeah, it seems a little bit. Bigger y’all like in the monitor, actually looks a lot bigger, but in person it just looks a little bit bigger. So I like that, because there’s a lot of pages in this thing, so clearly you can pull this off and put it anywhere. You want or just keep them off. I like to keep mine off. Just I don’t know personal preference. This is a really beautiful cover.

This year there was a couple of different new covers for the school line, and I picked this one. I thought this was so nice. You can obviously personalize it. I don’t like to personalize anything as you guys can see with this one. I didn’t personalize it at all, so, let’s dive into it. Oh this is so nice. Okay, let me here we go alright cool. I still making sure you guys are as centered as possible on this side is always a little dashboard area where you can use your wet erase markers and then you just hop in to the planner and then this is the teacher lesson planner.

This book belongs to the paper is still the Mohawk paper, it feels very nice and then they have an informational page. It says all about me: classroom information resources, name school year, email, phone address, classroom resources, website and passwords, and then over here we have events and volunteers, classroom, volunteers and contact information and then classroom events and date, information and I’m sure y’all are wondering like.

Why do I have this planner? Well, I’m kind of toying with the idea of using this for something, but if I’m using it I will share. However, I did read Jen from Jen plans, her blog or links, or something will be below for her. She did like an open box of her PR kit from Erin Condren and she is going to be. I don’t know if she is already like a scout leader, but she is going to be a scout leader this upcoming year and she was going to be using it for this and then possibly some other things, and I just thought that was like an awesome idea, Because there’s so many ways you can utilize this to really fit for your lifestyle, and you don’t have to be a teacher.

You can. You can be a student, you can be a parent, you can work with other organizations that maybe you just want that schedule totally separate from your personal schedule in your life planner or whatever kind of planner you use so anyway yeah. So I just wanted to address that because I’m sure y’all are like what the heck all right. So we have this contact tab and we have a communication. Log date name reason, slash resolved and then another one right here with a tab and it says 2019 2020 and then we have our year at a glance or our half year at a glance and then our full 2020 at a glance which is awesome.

And then we have our tab that says of your plan, so this kind of gives you, like a big overview, that you can maybe write some key points in or goal setting or whatever you’d like to do for your year plan. We also have a graph. This is purdy-like big old graph pieces of paper, and I think that there might be a couple in here. There are a few in here and then also we have some lined pages and then this page says that you can learn something new every day.

If you listen, isn’t that true and then dates to remember in July, so there is looks like a couple pages before every months you can write notes or follow-ups or whatever this page here is kind of the same as the old life planners, where it’s like thicker. If that makes sense, which is the tabbed page, then this page like this – it’s always like a little bit of a like thicker, almost feels like cardstock, but it’s not cardstock, and then here is july 2019, very subtle, tone-on-tone.

A coloration also has the next upcoming month. On the side, I love love, love that that is so nice and then you have Monday through Friday in here with another column as well, and then columns kind of going down. Also, you have a big section right here that you could use some of your stickers in so like some of these could fit right in there if you’ve got certain lessons or certain tasks or something that you would want to put in there, which is great, and Then you know it just kind of goes from there.

So here is July. Let’s go to August because I mean it’s going to be like they’re, so redundant yeah. So before the month you have two pages, basically a page, a little more than a page and a half of lined lined paper, basically and then dates to remember in August. So if you’ve got events coming up or birthdays anniversaries, no school early dismissals things like that, you can always write them in there and then so far yeah.

I really like this. Okay, I don’t want to go through the whole thing because, like y’all are probably bored by this points so anyway, the planner does go from, let’s see here July through July, so we have a full month. Okay, oh this is nice okay, so you have a full month of july 2019 in here, which is great, so you have your monthly page and all your weekly is, and then this gives me July 2020 as well, and also with my little August 2020 here and Let’s see so, we’ve got the first week or like the end of June, into the first week of July and then the first full week of July here to kind of tide you over until the next planner, which is awesome.

Then we have a little tab here. That says checklist, which is a nice piece of paper that has its like that cardstock e1 still cuz, it’s got the little Chucky tabs on there, so I’ve got a nice line piece of paper and then over here. This is where the checklists live. Oh, my gosh. This is so pretty very similar. This is called the student checklist, but it’s very similar to this I feel like this could be used really well for personal goals or whatever.

But so anyway, you can put the names and you can put assignments whatever you’d like, and it also says fold or cut along this dotted line. So you can fold or cut because if you’ve got the same students over and over, you can just do this and then you know it’s the same line for the same student, but you know more assignments if that makes sense. So you’ve got quite a few pages of these. I just love this.

Like light pastel vibe going on, I really like that. I believe that there are some customizations where you can customize like how many pages you get of certain things and whatnot, so that information will be on the website on the launch day. I’m really not a hundred percent sure on that. So anyway, and then there are some sticker sheets, because I mean it wouldn’t be an Erin Condren planner without some sticker sheets.

Okay. So then we have this metallic foiled. One we’ve got some other, really fun ones. There’s like field trip, take note conference assembly reminder. I could use some of these probably not field trip, but I could use some of them like great job big day. I can give myself like a great job Apple one of these days, and then we’ve got some more okay. My camera just cut off because I’ve been talking too much um, don’t know where I was, but I think I was still looking at stickers and then on this page.

We’ve got some more of those little tabs and some more a little like small boxes and washi strips and then we’ve got some cute little boxes and then we’ve got the back pocket, which is huge by the way and then the pocket on the back. And I must say I totally forgot in my planner article when I did the Erin Condren life planner, to talk about the back pocket. Remember how it used to be that little dinky pocket that, like nothing ever fit in, I’m so glad that they have the big pocket on the back and the front.

Now because I feel like you couldn’t fit, you know stuff in there yeah it has it on this side too, but I love that they did that with the teacher lesson planner as well all right up next, oh my god, I’m so excited about these two um. There are some stickers I mean stickers are like life right guys, so this has the coordinating colors, and this is july. 2019. Let me actually like zoom you in a little bit, so you can see this a little bit better.

These are some of the holidays. Already pre-printed, this looks like it comes with the planner, so we’ve got lots of different things like Labor Day, Grandparents Day International Literacy Day Patriot day like it just has a whole bunch of other things in here has a bunch of blank ones too. So if you want to write your own, you totally can and then we’ve just got like all the months going on. Oh, oh did I get two sets.

Oh no, I just ended up getting two of the sheet weird. I I’m sure that you’re supposed to just get two sheets out. Let me zoom you guys back out. Cuz things are getting weird: okay cool. I ended up getting two of this sheet. I think you’re just supposed to get one of each, because that just seems kind of silly, okay cool. Let me move that over here. Also, you have options with this clear pocket as well.

You can put things in there like invitations or other things that you would need to put in there. I’m not sure, but there are, I believe, options with that and then the last page is also this nice. Blank area that you can write things in and then the back cover alright, I said I was going to show you guys this tape and I’m going to do that right now. So let me get some paper yah all right, I’m just going to use this like graph side paper and then I’m going to show you how these fit as well.

I’m going to use one of my little stylized, sticky notes or nonstick. You know. So. I’m sorry snapping book words. It’s been a long day at work. You guys to cut my washi and you know I got to start at the end here. Let’s take a peek ooh. It like rolls out really nice guys, really nice cool, all right, I’m trying to get it straight. I feel I feel the pressure from the internet to make it straight. Okay, cut the washi yeah yeah, okay, that laid out really nice, and this looks so pretty.

I feel, like you know, you don’t have to be a student or a teacher, to love this planner and to love all of these things. I mean you could just like really like apples. You know fun fact I actually eat applesauce almost every morning. For my breakfast, no, that’s like a really random fact, but it’s true all right and this beautiful gold foil, so nice and company was she nice. This looks so cute, oh okay, I’m going to stop being weird, I mean, but I guess I am where didn’t you guys already know that so whatever okay? So this is what it all looks like laid down with the washi and let me get to a monthly page.

I’m also going to do this on a weekly, so y’all can see the sizing and things like that. So we’ve got our to do and I’m going to try to get as close as I can in a corner. So you can see you know, sizing and stuff like that. So this goes over just slightly here I don’t know. Just kind of count depends on how you like it there we go. I want to do one like this as well, so you can see these ones are like almost sticky all the way through.

Okay, that took me a moment all right, actually very cool and then the don’t forget which is like my favorite one, because you would think that I’m like this planner person, that is like really unforgettable, I kind of am forgetful, sometimes so yeah. This is how it looks on the month view of the teacher lesson. Planner, and here is the weekly and clearly these are going to be a little bit smaller, but like the these, little dudes are going to be a little bit smaller.

But I feel like that’s totally alright, because what I use the sticky notes for to be completely transparent, as usually I don’t pre-plan any more. What I end up doing is sharing my planner and everything like that after the fact, just for some security reasons and things like that, however, I use these little post-its as like little markers for like oh, my work schedule, or I did this after work or I Had this appointment or whatever it is, you know I just love using these little sticky notes and they’re.

So nice and I must say the woven wonder, pattern one. Last year, the stickiness, I don’t know what happened but like it really encountered up their game for sure. With those – and I have to say I’m so glad to report that these are the same stickiness those and the new kaleidoscope pattern of the stylized sticky notes are also the same adhesiveness. So I’m just very excited about that because in years past they just for me haven’t been as good, so I just hadn’t had like a great experience with them, but now I’m in love with them they’re.

So nice, oh man, be helpful. If I can like actually lay this down properly so yeah, this is what it looks like in the weekly and I know, y’all are probably chomping at the bit going Emily. Why don’t you put them in the life planner? So we can see that too, and I’m like you know, I hear I’m here for you, okay, so let’s put it in the life planner as well, so we can see just how well this is. You know how well it goes um.

I think I don’t know for sure, because I’m you know don’t know the measurements and stuff. I clearly have an hourly planner, but the hourly planner is just slightly wider in the boxes, then the vertical. So I am assuming I don’t know for sure cuz. I don’t have a vertical with me, but I’m assuming that these fit the vertical perfectly, but I could totally be mistaken. This will clearly not fit so I’m just going to put that over there, alright, but yeah.

I think these are just so huge and I just I’m really liking the direction that Erin Condren is going, and I know some people are going to think like. Oh, you just say that, because you get sent stuff for free, you know if y’all haven’t noticed and I don’t mean to sound, not grateful or anything, but I used to do posts for a lot of different planner companies that, to be honest, I didn’t use, and I did it be for the sake of a article and I’m just trying to be like super transparent with you guys right now, and I’m kind of done doing that.

I really want to produce content that I would want to read and things that I’m passionate about and things that I think that you would be passionate about. I have gotten so many questions about the teacher lesson planner recently and when I was offered this collaboration, I was like absolutely I’ve had so many comments and so many questions about the teacher lesson planner. I need to show my audience like.

I was just so excited and they know that I’m not a teacher or a student or have kids or any of that like they’re, fully aware, but my audience does and I want to share with you guys this stuff, so you can make your own opinions so Anyway, that’s my little tangent. Sorry, I’m like going a little off on tangents today, but yeah. That’s the whole point of like sharing these articles before things launch, so you guys can make an informed choice and also maybe get some perspective from me as a single working person, and maybe some things I would use it for versus.

You know what you might use it for in your life and maybe it’s the same thing. Maybe it’s something totally different, but that’s what I love about planning and some of these products is that you can really make them your own. So anyway, let’s get back to this because sorry, but this is everything in the our lease – you can kind of see how it all goes. But yes, I’m so excited about that, and I wanted to show you the plan.

I pack on this because there’s been a lot of questions about it and I have actually seen people on the interwebs put this on there and, to be honest, this probably doesn’t like go the best, but we’re going to go for it anyway. I have seen some people put this on here and I am going to show you guys, I’m just going to like keep the film roll in and I’m going to show you exactly how difficult this is.

You can put it on there, but it is very, very tight. Like all I need it’s very stretched to the max, so you could probably put some flatter things in here. I think I just don’t think you could put anything of like real bulk in here. Just with it like that, and I just don’t know if it would, you know permanently kind of curl your cover. She just can see it’s kind of curling the cover like that, but somebody out there was a genius and I don’t know who that somebody was.

But I did see it on Instagram and I was like this is amazing. They put it this way. I’m like oh snap, like somebody out there was thinking. So, oh sorry, it’s like next to my body here. Sorry, I’m not really showing you guys very well. Okay. There we go so when you do it this way, it kind of you know goes inside the coil and that’s fine, but it also kind of acts as one of those at planar bands and then you can feel like you can fit like bigger things in there And you’re not going to like bend up your covers either.

So I don’t know that could definitely be an option for you and in the planning, packs, there’s lots of different patterns and colors. Now I know what was the one that they said. Oh, it was the really pretty kaleidoscope pattern that they had in the colorful that they had sent me there’s a neutral one which is gorgeous and there’s also some solid ones, so yeah there’s just kind of a little something for everyone and the zippers.

I must tell you are really really nice like they don’t skip or anything. I’ve had really good luck with Erin Condren zippers randomly, but I like kind of a zipper snub. You guys are learning like way too much about me. Oh, the back of it is like this pretty like hot, pink, fuchsia color as well. Oh and the inside is as well. I don’t know if I showed you that I’m sorry i’m a bad reviewer alright, so that is going to be it for my open box of the teacher lesson planner for erin condren at 2019 through 2020 again, links are below for y’all.

If you’re interested in this planner or anything else that they have to sell on their website, there are some links down below.

2020/2021 Layers Accessories Preview | Erin Condren #ECSquad

I just posted the Erin Condren life planner open box for 2020 slash 2021. I will leave that link up in a card for you and down below. I figured I wanted to do the accessories separate than the life planner, because I know some people are just interested in the life planner and some people are interested in just the accessories plus.

The article would have been like an hour long, so we’re going to break this puppy up. So here’s just some of the accessories that are going to be available on launch day by the way public launch day is on April 29 and then also, if you’re, an ec insider. Your launch day is on April 27. So you have a couple of extra days, which is very exciting, so the planners will be up then, as well as some of the accessories there’s, probably more accessories that I didn’t get and that’s okay.

So first things first! Thank you so much to the Erin Condren team, Sam and Tori. If you guys always think of me, thank you so much. I got this all in PR and I’m just going to tell you my thoughts. So let’s go through this a one by one and I will share what I know all right. First things. First, these little dudes are some of my favorite things. These are called complement cards and they’re like little business cards, and I absolutely love them.

I bring them to my office. I think this is one of the most like underrated, Erin Condren products. Basically of all time. I think I don’t know so I use these a lot in the office. Like I said, I mean clearly I’m not in the office right now, because we’re all under stay at home orders under quarantine because of everything that’s going on. But I have given a lot of these out in the past if somebody’s having a bad day or they closed a big sale or something like that.

So like this one sounds like I’m so proud of you, it’s got a blank back, so you can just write a little note and stuff, and the really fun thing is: is I’ll just leave this on somebody’s desk and write a little note to them. Like you know, I hope you’re having a great day or whatever it is and then, like you know, a year later, I walk by their desk and they, like still have it up. It’s like super cute, so anyways.

I love these. I think these are awesome and they’re in the colorful layers. That is the theme for this year. So you’re going to see the majority of my stuff that I received in PR is colorful layers. So this is the first thing the compliment cards. Also, this bad boy is a pen and it is a ballpoint pen. They have these last year as well in the kaleidoscope. They have the gold hardware and I did test this out already.

It is a black ballpoint pen and yeah. It’s just a ballpoint pen. It’s not a marker or anything like that, so it’s just, but it’s really cool it have a cute case. You can actually pull. Could you pull this out hold on hold on? I need to disassemble things I feel like you, can pull this out and use this for something else. Ooh hold on. Oh, yes, okay, sorry, I’m breaking all your stuff, erin condren yeah! You could pull this out and use it as like a little storage box.

If you wanted, but ya thought this was really cool and definitely going to use that there are also a bunch of stickers and we’ve got just some basic event box stickers with some silver foil. We’ve also got some birthday stickers with silver foil, and then we’ve got this one here, that’s more than rose gold, foil and the gold foil, which is my favorite, love those and then another thing that is one of my favorite faves.

I use them so often every single year is these stylized sticky notes they clip right into the coil of your life, planner they’re, so versatile, so functional. Actually, here, let’s do this. Let me let me show you the pen real quick and you just turn it like. It’s not a click like it’s a turn and so yeah there you go and it’s a black ink pen. I don’t know if I said that, maybe I do I’m losing it. I don’t even know what day it is right now.

No, but I love these and I use them every single year. I always stock up on them too, because I go through several of these per year. Next up is a dashboard, it has priorities and to do, and you can use your dry erase markers on them or wet erase markers. I don’t know I never use them and then over on the back side, it has Monday through Sunday people use this for like meal planning or if there’s like a bunch of to do things or whatever you can also use which I’ve seen.

People do little sticky notes on here, rather than actually writing on here too. So I don’t know everyone does something a little bit different. So I think that’s the fun idea of planning and you just kind of do what works for you and your family in your life and whatever you want to track or shorten dates whatever so yeah. And then these also have the clip in just like the stylized sticky notes, so they fit perfectly in your coil bound planner or they also fit perfectly in the ring bound planner as well.

Next up we’ve got these beautiful bookmarks speaking of fitting perfectly in the planner. Oh, I didn’t take. All the adhesive off should have done that before the article started. Oh well, but these fit perfectly in your life planner as well. Every year I end up getting these and you know what I end up using them for is to cut washy. Here’s my one from last year, that’s like legit just sitting on my desk because I use it every day, sometimes multiple times a day and yeah.

So this has all of the different colorful layers and you can choose you know which one you want to use or you can use all of them and you can clip them in and I feel like. I got the daily planner this year and I feel like with the daily planner. You definitely need a little bookmark just to keep you on task. I mean, maybe not just depending on how you use it, but I think I’m going to be using these a little bit more this year with that we planner for sure there is also some washi tape.

This year, we’ve got the neutral layers. Let me assume you guys in the little boat, so you can see it, I’m so sorry about the glare you guys, but you know I only have a certain amount of time to film these articles. So that’s just how it’s going to go and then so. This is a neutral and then this one is colorful. Just you can see what it would look like. You know on like a white paper background, but I just love this and they’re, not the paper tape they’re, actually like the washi tape, so there are little textured and they cut really well.

I’ve already cut one of them with one of these guys. You know these. These little dudes and they cut really really well – and I really really like them so very excited about that and jazzing up my planner this year and next up whoa hold on. We need to back that train up girl. Okay. Here we go alright. So next up we have one of the petit planners, and this is in the July 2020 through December 2021, monthly planner, it’s just a nice buttery color with the classic mid-century circles from Erin Condren in the gold, foil and yeah.

So let’s take a peek at this. So the first page is, you know this book belongs to just like you normally start out and then we’ve got 20 20 into 20 21 in these smaller month of views, and then you know some boxes and then we’ve got. You know all of the months – and this is just a really really nice basic planner, especially if you’re just not super in a decorative planning, or maybe you want to plan like do a little bit of decorative stuff.

But you just want to keep track of stuff, and this is pretty lightweight fits pretty easily into most bags or purses or something you can keep in your car on your desk. So I really like that and then also in the back. There are tons of these pages that are in the dot grid. This is just so nice and at the very back we have the little folder as usual, and then we’ve got some stickers in the gold foil as well.

So you can jazz up your planner. However, you want to and then we have the beautiful plenty pouch. I love this thing, and this is so so cute, I think was it last year is the first year that they did a pattern to plan a pouch. Maybe not maybe I’m going a little insane. I don’t know anybody’s, but they have it for this year in the colorful, I’m not sure if it comes in any other colorways, I’m not sure if it comes in the neutral or not again.

This was all sent to me in PR, and things are not live on the website. Yet so I’m not really sure, but it is this beautiful leather like material, that’s textured on the back is just kind of this really deep, greenish blue color with the gold strap. This is like a little, you know, opening and that’s got gold hardware, oh yeah and inside. I actually put something inside already, because I could not fit these back in the box and we’ll talk about these right now.

But anyway I was going to say with this: you could put this over your planner cover on your planner. Also, you could do it with your petite planners as well. They’re almost the same size, the pouch is just slightly smaller, I feel like so I feel like if you like, walked into a meeting or something with this that’ll, be it’s like super cute anyway, but yeah. You can put it on your life planner as well.

So, very cute, you can put lots of different things in their pens stickers, anything it all goes in there all right. So these are an interchangeable, DIY, pen, kit, you can scribble design, write and highlight so there’s highlighters, medium tips and three fine tips and then there’s two barrels. So these are the little barrels and then you just like pop them in I don’t know how. Oh, I see huh gotcha, okay cool, so you just kind of snap them in and then turn them and then you know, like you’ve, got stuff, that’s good, I’m kind of cool.

I know that these came out in one of the surprise boxes and I haven’t gotten a surprise box in a long time you guys, like I’m totally slacking, but these are kind of a cool idea and they have lots of different tips again. These are just like the regular markers, this one’s a highlighter, this one’s, a fine tip so yeah, and I just thought that a really great storage option would be to put them in the planning back, because I don’t want to lose any of them, because I want To play with them later and I think to get through filming this article before I can play with that so anyway, I just thought that was really cute, they’re kind of a fun option and then the last item I have to show you today is going to Be the new sticker book – I am just jazzed about this.

These colors are so vibrant and so dang pretty I just can’t get over it and I’m a sucker for an Erin Condren sticker book like everybody else so yeah. But this is beautiful. The color saturation is just so deep and so pretty so yeah I’m just. I am digging on this for sure. So this has a bunch of the gold foil. We’ve got this one that has some of the cooler tones that are more of the rose, gold, foil and then the warmer tones on this side.

This is a different type of paper. I did take one off already and they like meld into your paper um. I don’t know what this paper is, but it’s not transparent, but it’s not like the normal paper either. I don’t know, but I’m kind of obsessed. I don’t know how to explain it. You guys just need to get one trust me, and then this one has a ton of functional stuff which is awesome and the gold foil, and then this one is transparent.

These are totally transparent stickers and if you want to use a pen with these, you can’t use a normal pen. You do have to use a permanent pen. So if you have like a Sharpie pen or like I really like this one, it’s the pilot ultrafine point permanent pen. The link will be down below for these. If you’re interested, they come in a bunch of colors. You just have to write on these and then wait a little bit and then you can, you know, put them in your planner but yeah since it’s like a glassy glossy sticker sheet it just you know you can’t use a regular pen with it so yeah and Then these ones are all the little circles and the silver foil love these.

These are in the transparent as well, but you don’t really need to write on them. They already have the things written down for you in the gold foil. It’s like to do me time. Hello weekend today, appointment all that so I’ll definitely use all of these, and then we’ve got some banners, which is great like weekend, vacation a bunch of other little things, and these are all in the rose gold foiled we’ve got some silver foil here in the flags And then some gold foil and some foxes and hearts, and then we’ve got some of these washi strips, which are always so pretty every year in the layers, and these ones have the rose, gold, foil and then we’ve got some more silver foil, and that is it All right now, so this is it.

Thank you guys so much for reading my Erin Condren planner accessories haul, all in the beautiful new colorway and pattern and the colorful layers, if you guys enjoyed the article, make sure to give it a thumbs up, feel free to share it with your friends.

NEW Planner Tote Bag | Erin Condren

It’s really hot outside and I just got done taking Doyle on a walk. I have the fan on here in the office, but it’s not helping so anyway. I was waiting for a little while to film this, but I’m like you know what I’m just going to be tomato face today and that’s alright. So today we are going to talk about the new erin condren totes.

I have mine on the floor here I packed it full of stuff, so you guys can see a little bit more. I did post on Instagram the other day so yeah this is. This. Is the Instagram post that I posted on there so yeah? Let’s look at the bag, I’m going to take everything out I’ll talk about the bag, a little bit, what the prices are launch day, all that good stuff. So it’s down here! It’s really heavy right! Now! Cuz, I wanted to show you guys how much stuff it fits.

I have the grey one and this hold on. Let me back up. I just want to run I’m roll over the dog. This is what it looks like and it has little handles if you want to use the handles. I am not really a fan of the handles, but I like the versatility of that and then this is all the stuff that’s in there. So I want to take everything out one by one and just to show you what actually fits in here. I love this canvas bag.

It gets so nice. I’ve been like literally wearing this every single day since I got it in PR and I’ve had so. Many compliments on it. It’s been super helpful. I love a crossbody bag. You guys didn’t really see, but there’s this really nice sturdy gold hardware. I am using right now this strap because it was just Memorial Day like the other day, and this has the Navy. There will be a Navy as well, but all of the samples that I’ve seen on Instagram have been of this gray canvas.

So it doesn’t really bother me that this doesn’t like these don’t match, but it might bother you I don’t know, but let’s look at what’s in the bag and what I can fit in here. So people were asking about. Like a laptop, I have a 15-inch MacBook Pro, which I believe is the biggest one, and it definitely fits clearly you sought kind of sticking out, but it does fit, which is nice and then hold on. I just want to like a couple things around and then try to mmm hold on.

Let’s, let’s see if we can push you guys down just a little bit. Let’s see, let’s see what we can do here boo, maybe yes, maybe, and then we have the teacher lesson planner, which is the bigger planner which is in here, so that definitely fits without sticking out the long way. And then I also have one of the new erin condren binders, which actually has every single page in it as well. If that makes a difference to y’all, and then I put in one of these little journals – which I love, because you know love me something bendy and then it’s like kind of empty on the inside now and we’ve got some pockets which Oh hold on.

Let me let me turn it around. This is like difficult. So do you guys alright? So there is it’s hard to see, but there is a like water bottle pocket. You can kind of see it like that, so it has like a little like bungy down here. So you can take your water bottle on the go, which is nice and kind of tuck it in the corner. Let’s see, can you see it a little bit better yeah, so you can kind of see it like on the corner there, and then I have my wallet, which literally fits so perfect right in here, and I just have a Michael Kors wallet and I actually put Can’t see it very well, but this is that dressy drusy, I don’t know how to say it a little plainer charm from Erin Condren that I got in my launch day order.

There’s also like a little key fob thing that you can just very easily take your keys on and off. Unfortunately, my car is not very new, so I have to use this to like start my car. I know a lot of people nowadays have vehicles that just start if their keys are even cloaks. So that’s nice, but there are two slip: pockets right here. This is the larger one that my wallet fits in really really well um, also where’s, my phone phones.

Oh my phone’s right here – oh my gosh I have the iPhone X, are so it’s a little bit wider and that fits perfectly right there. It’s maybe a little tight. Well, actually, no, if it’s actually really great in there, so it fits in both anywho and then we’ve got this slip pocket here, not slip pocket. This zippered pocket, which I have a bunch of my Erin Condren tote bags in because I always need a tote bag, and then there are two pockets right down in here.

I did want to put something in there. This is Alec’s planner a 12 month life planner. So it fits perfectly in there and you know you don’t have to really struggle with it and just to let you guys know it goes down all the way to the bottom. Oh, I should show you. The bottom is um. You know that faux leather, so I like that. I think it’s faux leather. I don’t know if it’s real leather, guys, um, alright and then the next one.

I wanted to show you guys a file folder, but I don’t have folders. I only have hanging folders. So I put it in here and it fits just fine. So if you have like important documents or anything like that, you could always slip them in here and again this one. It goes down all the way. So that’s what’s in the bag it’s empty now, but you can see I like that it comes with the gray lining, so it’s a little bit easier to see because it’s a little bit brighter um but yeah.

So I have been rockin just throwing this in here. My phone and keys and then anything else that I need so like, Oh, throw my reusable bags in there, I’m not somebody that actually brings my binders and my planners like along with me. I may sometimes like grab one of these. This is just one of those bigger notebooks and sometimes I’ll just pop one of those in here as well. Dr. Easy-peasy, and also this has been really great because I’m trying not to use as many plastic bags and I’ve just been able to like put the things in my bag.

Like you clearly I paid for them first, but you know it’s all good, but yeah. This is the bag, it is so I don’t know I just really really like it, and one thing I really like about it is like it’s kind of smooshy. I love the gold hardware and I like that, it’s not you know in the planner world, as we all know, things can sometimes be like very precious and what I mean by that is like you know, you can’t scratch it.

You can’t stain it like any little thing and it just doesn’t look good. You know, but I like how like non-precious this is that you could, just you know, throw it in your car and you know you could be a little rough with it and I think it would still like be okay, even if you got a little something on It or whatever, so anyway, let me back up – and let me show this to you on and oh the strap goes pretty far down, I’m five, six that I have a really long torso.

So let me stand up and show you guys what it looks like. So if you want to, you can actually like tuck these in if you’d like, there is a little flap here with a magnetic clasp if that’s yo, jam um but yeah. This is what it looks like on me. I can make it longer or shorter, just kind of, depending on your style, but um. You know just depending on where you like it to hit. I like it to hit just a little bit higher than it is right now, because I just extended it a little bit more um.

But again I am five six, but I have a longer torso than I do legs. I have stubby legs in a long torso, but yeah. I really I really like it and it’s it’s very comfortable, it’s very lightweight as well. So the nice thing is when I load up all this stuff yeah, it’s really heavy, but if I don’t have a ton of stuff in here, it’s very, very lightweight. I want to show you guys, some of the other accessories that it comes with, but I need to open up my phone first here are some of the other accessories, and this is one of the other interchangeable straps, and this also has the gold hardware.

This actually has the grey fabric right here and then also there is this one that has the Navy, and I wanted to keep the plastic on this one. So you can see how it comes, it’s really nicely done, and it just kind of peels off. It’s like very satisfying, not as satisfying is when you get the new iPhone, but like kind of close and then this is also wrapped up. These are, but I was too excited to just see them all.

So these are interchangeable, straps, which I love, because I feel like you can get a lot of use out of this, because you can change them for the season or whatever you’re feeling that day. But the bags I’m going to like read off my phone because I don’t know where the information card ones – okay, so there are going to be four different bags, they’re all going to be the same size, so don’t worry they’re all going to be the same size.

They’re going to be constructed the same, but there are going to be two leather bags which are going to be a hundred and twenty dollars, there’s going to be a black leather bag and also a metallic platinum leather bag. If you guys have seen erin condren personal facebook page, which is not Facebook, I’m sorry Instagram page, which is at I am Erin Condren. She has shown this bag in that metallic platinum and it’s really really pretty.

I actually got to see it in person and it looks very, very nice. It has a little sparkle to it, but not like crazy, aggressive Sparkle. If you know what I mean, there’s also the gray canvas which I am showing you right here, there’s also the Navy, which will be fun. Everything is going to be. Probably I’m assuming everything is going to be photographed on the website on launch day. So you guys can see it, but then the gray and the Navy are both $ 60.

They all come with one strap, I’m not sure. If you get to pick which traffic with that detail, I don’t know, but for any of the other planner tote bag straps. It’s $ 12 for the canvas ones and then, if you want any of the leather straps, those are $ 20 apiece. So you can either get the black strap or you can get the metallic platinum. Sorry, I’m reading so uh yeah. They all have the gold hardware.

So they all match with that, and I just love how interchangeable these things are. I’m a fan of the canvas for sure like I feel like I might want a navy one too. I don’t know I don’t know, I don’t know what my vibe is, but I really like this strap. I really like this strap. This strap is probably my least favorite, but you know it’s okay to have a least favorite, but yeah right now, I’m loving this one.

Just for the patriotic holiday that we just had and then July 4th is going to be coming up too. So I’m very excited, but I love this one too. It’s really really nice and oh. I should probably tell you when this is coming out right. That might be helpful. These are going to be live on the Erin Condren site on June 11, and I am just so pumped I’m actually really pumped to see if they are going to offer any more straps or how they’re going to be doing that.

I’m hoping I don’t think this is true, but in my perfect world I would love for them to have like seasonal straps, like this one to me is like very patriotic, but I would love to have like some fall colors and you know some more wintery colors And like seasonal kind of colors, I think that would be really cool. I don’t know Erin if you’re reading think about it, especially in the canvas. I think this is really nice and I love the stripes.

Also, it’d be really cool to do this like enough solid to just a thought, but anyway, that is going to be it for the new erin condren tote bag. I am so in love with this. I hope that you guys liked looking through this with me, so you can get a better idea of how everything works inside of here. I know that there’s other reviews online and blog posts and things if you have any questions about the bag, feel free to post them down in the comments below I’ll answer as many of them as I possibly can, if you’re planning on getting a tote bag or You’ve gotten a tote bag depending on.

When you see this, let me know which one you got and why you got it. Maybe the black bag goes best with most of your outfits, or maybe the navy bag will go best with you know your style, but um yeah. Let me know, let me know which one you got so anyway, that’s going to be it for me today. Thank you. So much for reading, if you liked the article you know the drill give it a thumbs up also feel free to subscribe, and I will be back with more content very soon for you by my bag.

I love you all right, bye, guys! Oh before I go, I feel like I’m going to get a lot of questions about my nail. Polish and sorry. My cuticles are weird-looking right now, but this is from color Street they’re like the little you know, doohickeys, where you just slap her on, but if you’re interested I will put the link of the person I bought mine from but yeah color street and they’re like I. Don’t know like a silver, just like a silver glitter, very exciting, okay, i’ma go down well, folks is time to kick it old-school.

Working from Home | Office Tour

Guys have been asking for this, so I figured. I would just show you around a little bit in the office. Give you a little bit of a detailed look of what I need on a day-to-day basis to do my job. My actual job title is a process engineer and what that means is I interpret drawings from design engineers and calculate out material for it to be fabricated.

That’s kind of the easiest way to describe it. So basically I look at prints and drawings all day as well as I do a lot of math. So that’s kind of what I do and it’s all not all of its data entry, but a majority of it is data entry and entering it properly into our systems to make everything work. So this is my second bedroom, and this is now an office I used to have it as a guest room, but I converted it into an office quite a while ago, as you enter we’re going to look down right now.

Cuz Doyle is there sleeping doing his due diligence as the coworker, and let me give you like a little desk to her right now, since we’re dealing with kovat and all of that stuff. I have like a little heart thing. I actually got this on Amazon yesterday. This came in it’s like a little rope rainbow and I thought that was really cute. So you know I have my little my cute little valence here so yeah, I’m going to link as many things as I can find it down below for you guys over here.

Actually, let’s start with this wall, so clearly this is not required, but I have these prints on the wall. I got them from home goods, I believe, like home goods, our Marshalls. I can never remember which one, but I got them at the same time, they’re beautiful they’ve got like some sparkles on them and I just love like the gilded frame. I think that’s so so sweet so pretty anyway. Over here I have a little envelope opening thing.

I have right now just a little book in there, but I actually do keep like my paper bills in there. Anything that gets mailed to me that I have to like financially take care. I will put in there as a reminder and then, when I deal with it, then it goes in the file cabinet, which I will show you in just a moment. I have two of these lamps, which are on both sides flanking got those from Ikea. I also have this little funny-looking thing um, that is a tripod like.

I can actually put my camera right here. It’s like a little mount. I will link it is actually already linked below, but it works really well for my set up when I you know, do planning articles and such over the corner. Here are my planners that I got in PR that I have some things I need to do with or like deal with with them. I also have some stickers and I’m going to be doing a haul with I have more stickers coming, so I’m just kind of stacking them there for the moment over here I have this really cool, washi, cart and a bunch of simply gilded washi.

You got ta have hand cream, especially now, when we’re all washing our hands like crazy and then over here I’ve got some calendar set ups, so this is a firm Erin Condren. Those planners are from Erin Condren as well, but this is from Erin Condren. This was just kind of keeping track of my vlogging, and things like that and like what I needed to film so today is actually the 28th. I did a little bit of decorating, but not not too much so yeah, today’s the 28th and then I’ll be posting.

This, I don’t know at some point I actually got this acrylic easel, like a critics, stand on Amazon the other day, and I really like this a lot. I like that that just like sits there and I can see it cuz. I’ve got a lot of things going on so yeah like that. This is today and I’m down here, filming filming things, I’m filming things so yeah, but that’s that over here just some stuff. I need to deal with there’s some ups returning labels that I still need to hold onto until amazon credits.

My account I have like a little. I call it a washi cutter, it’s not it’s actually a bookmark, but I use it to cut washi. I just leave it right here. Then inside of here is a bunch of markers from Erin Condren, so we have that I’ve got a little coaster, because you need a coaster for all your good stuff. I also have some just random sticky notes. I was writing some sticky notes. I got ta put away whatever and then I have a new pad of sticky notes, so I just always have a fresh pad of sticky notes already and then I have a bunch of pens.

I just kind of put them in there. It’s easy, I’m right-handed, so it makes sense when I’m at my all my monitors that I have it on the right side. I also have my phone and it’s on a little stand right now, it’s being charged. That’s really easy to like you know, do this or have it sit like that, like for article calls or what have you and then I also have a wireless, keypad and mouse that all gets connected into this bad boy over here, which is my laptop and then Over on the side, here I have like a big pen holder, but um.

You know this doesn’t really fit anywhere else on the desk, so I just put it over there and then, when I need pens, I just throw them in there cuz it works, so they usually just use the same two or three over and over again, and if You guys are wondering I got my desk at IKEA. I can’t remember the name of it but um I had to you know everything was separate, so you got the file cabinets and then the top and the one-leg all separately, so yeah and then the chair.

I actually got on Amazon. I will link that below and then I think I got like everything on Amazon for the most part, and then I’ve got this, which I actually got the other day there I’ll make it look pretty for you. You can kind of make it look funny here, but this is supposed to help with, like I don’t know your nerves or something. But anyway I did read on the Amazon reviews that this can kind of stain your chair.

So I put a your encountering Sherpa throw down, so it didn’t stay in the white anyway, but it seems to be working just fine and I really like it and then underneath my chair. I actually have a foot roller because I have plantar fasciitis in my feet and that helps moving over here. I have all my chords just like a hot mess, but they are it’s a labeled hot mess. You guys and then I have my paper shredder.

I’ve got my printer, which I really don’t need to use to be honest for the most part, but every once in a while. I do need to physically sign something and then scan it. So it’s nice to have this, and this is a LaserJet printer and I absolutely love it and I’ve had it for a few years now and I really really like it. As for the file cabinet, it’s a three-tiered file cabinet also from Ikea, had it for several years now.

This tiered cart is from Ikea everything’s for making you guys – and this is my planner cart – that has all my stickers and all my washi and sticky notes and all my little doodads to decorate my planner, which is right over here. So you know I needed to put something in my planner or whatever I can just wheel. The cart over and plan and then over here is nothing really interesting. I have these two bookcases there, the billy bookcase – and this is what the inside looks like.

I really don’t have much going on in either of them. This used to be storage for my Etsy shop, which is no longer in business because it was just too much. I didn’t need to do that anymore, so I just said sayonara, and this is all the extras and then on top here I just have a little bit of tissue, another little organizer. This one is from home goods and then I’ve actually got some like these. Are these two are like work notebooks and then I have another work thing here.

This is a medical binder and then this is also a medical like binder slash tracker. So that’s basically it for my at-home work set up. I try not to up here, but it’s really, I feel like it’s super difficult right now, just with everything going on what I’d like to do is work when I’m working from home there’s a dog right there is I like to take him on a nice long, Walk usually about like 10:00 10:30 somewhere in there.

That kind of just helps my brain. Like I, you know in the morning I check my email. I get all my emails out do all of that good stuff and then once it kind of dies down just a little bit I’ll, take him out for just a little bit of a mental break. You know, like a 15-minute, walk, something like that. He’s getting really excited when I’m saying anyways and then yeah, I grab some water or whatever take my coffee or tea or whatever I’m drinking for the morning and oh, don’t worry your curse, um and then take that downstairs and then you know bring up bring up.

Some water or juice or whatever I want to drink, and you know kind of reinvigorate a little bit so yeah. But let me back up a little bit here: I’m going to back that train up here, come on Doyle, so yeah. That is it for my working at home office a set up. I hope you guys enjoyed the article and enjoyed just a little look at the office. I you know don’t use too much pen to paper, except for my little notes.

I do have to write myself little notes once in a while, but that’s about it. Everything is digitized. I send over all my completed work actually to my boss. He goes from there because he’s actually in the office right now. I think he’s he is the actually. The only person in the office, everyone else is working in production and they’re, taking all their precautions and things like that, and they actually all work more than six feet away from each other, so not sure when I’m actually going back into the office.

That has not been announced yet, but um yeah I’ll try to get this article up for you guys and then I will, like I said before. I will link as many products as I can find down below and then, if you have a home office set up, do you have any like tips or tricks or little things that really help you? You know, like the dog, helps me because kind of breaks up the day and things like that, but yeah right Doyle.

New Fall Products + 2020 Petite Planners | Erin Condren

I wonder what this is, so I picked it up and it was like super heavy and I thought well, maybe not all my warehouse sales stuff came, but it already did, but I was like well, maybe they like duplicated the order or something and I’ll just send It back so then I open it up and it’s a bunch of brand new things from Erin Condren, so this is clearly a PR package, so I figured I would just open this up because I have the time today.

I don’t have the time tomorrow. So I wanted to share with you some of the new goodies. There is stuff, that’s on the website already and there might be some things that is not on the website. Yet so, let’s just go through it and let me get this box out of the way. Now I have to clean this because the bottom of my box was wet gross, Oh guests. Ah there it goes cool all right, so I have my computer right over here, so I am going to just put the thing down and see if I can find it.

Oh, my gosh, why are you so blurry stop dude a little little look yeah there. It goes good job okay, so this is called the accordion zipper pouch. So let’s find this accordion zipper, pouch? Okay! So it’s just $ 14. I did actually see this on someone’s Instagram feed. I think it was gen McIntosh and I saw the picture of it and I was like I don’t get it. Do you get to pick your color? Well, you get all the colors cuz.

It goes what I really like the gold hardware. I think that’s really neat, and then it has like a little loop here, so you can hold on to it or a loop here so like you can literally play the damn accordion with your erin condren pouch, which is kind of fun like it’s like a rainbow Accordion anyway, so it does retail for $ 14 and it’s like I don’t know what kind of materials it’s like nylon II kind of.

Let me see what it says. Oh doesn’t say anything: okay, cool cool, all right. It says 6 attached pouches with gold hardware with handles for easy expansion. Clearly and then it’s man-made materials and then care instructions are to wipe down with a damp cloth. So this is alright, I feel like it was stuff. It would be like a something I’d put like a wet swimsuit in, even though like the inside isn’t like lined or anything um but yeah.

I don’t know, I mean this is an interesting concept. I don’t. I don’t know how I would use this besides. Just to walk up to people, and maybe do this – I don’t know I mean I guess I could store some of my secrets in here but um I don’t mean I guess. If you’re like a pretty minimal planner, you could put like some of your like most used stickers in there or something, and just like put pens in one of the or I don’t know I don’t know I feel like this would be like way too small.

For me, or you could use it like for travel, maybe I don’t know it’s kind of an interesting idea, but I do love a gold hardware. I think that’s really really nice, but yes, this retails for $ 14 and the next item is this little ruler and I actually readed a open box of the new seasonal surprise box, which this is the first time that I have not I’m going to zoom. In a little bit again um I have not ordered.

This is the first time ever that I have not ordered the seasonal surprise box for fall. You know the seasonal surprise boxes. I just haven’t been feeling lately, but this was in the seasonal surprise box article that I readed and it’s what is called just metal ruler yeah. So let me see if it’s online, yet I do like this a lot. This was like the one thing I was like. Oh I might get this, and then they had said that this is actually coming to the shop.

It wasn’t like an exclusive thing, so that’s really cool. I love the little asterisks. It’s like very it’s a very nice weight to it, which is nice, and it’s got some nice corners. I do have like something from Target, there’s only six inches long by the way I do have one from Target – that’s really similar, but it’s like a full. You know 12 inches that I’ve had for years and years and I think it was like a Nate Berkus thing, but let me see if this is online: it’s not online yet so I’m not sure what the price is, but I will leave the erin condren links Down below for you guys, I want to say, maybe it was like nine dollars or something it is a nice medal, but I mean, if you don’t like gold, I don’t know if they’re going to come in any other colors or not, but yeah.

This would be actually kind of nice hold on to like put in there see, I don’t know. What’s going on my camera today, just keeps like getting all blurry, I don’t know. I got ta look into that alright and the next item. This is also something that was in the seasonal, a surprise box that I saw, but clearly I didn’t get that one is this desk accessories set. It’s kind of this like jewel tone, so you’ve got like binder clips pushpins.

These are like the ball pushpins. These are just regular, pushpins, two different sizes paper clips, which these are like coated. It’s not my favorite. I really like one I’ll grab one out, let’s see here where are they near the other ones? I, like cuz, I’m like crazy, they’re, just regular old paper clips but they’re the ones that have like the little grippies on them because it just I feel like it, holds the paper so much better, but yeah and then there’s some rubber bands so see what it Says: okay, so it includes nine binder clips a tee ball push pins, forty basic push, pins, thirty rubber bands, eighty small paper clips and then twenty-seven large paper clips.

So let’s go online and see if this is online. Yet it’s not online yet, but it probably will be, but I might put this article up, I’m not really sure when all this stuff is launching, because in the box there was no information and I hadn’t gotten an email. But you know I’m appreciative of all this swag so anyway, these are kind of fun, though, if you like these kind of like folly, jewel tones, and then I got these, these are the daily planners.

Let’s take a look at them. I know that they had these. Like petit planners from last year – and I’m just you know, not sure what they look like this year, but I do really like the UM kaleidoscope pattern to them. I think that’s really nice, so I have January through March April, through June July, through September and then oxalá October through December, and I know a lot of people have been waiting for this to come out so yeah.

Here it is January 20 2000 K and then you have like the dailies in here too cool, alright, nice event, ness February, and then we’ve got Marge and like clearly it’s all good. Oh look at this fancy. Schmancy um! Oh my gosh! These have purple foil on them. Can you see that? Oh, that’s, just freakin cool all right hold on hold on? I have a hypothesis, because this is kind of purply. Is this what I’m going to have pink foil? You know I’m clearly more excited about stickers than anything in the world.

So here’s your look at this one. Oh, my god, it does well, it doesn’t. Oh no, it’s different see it’s like a magenta um, so you can see yeah. It’s like a magenta color. How fancy? Okay, what do we think this one’s going to be it’s going to be like yellow, or is it going to be orange mmm? It’s just gold, it’s just regular old gold, but still love okay, you’re going to look at this one! You like this one’s going to be blue, maybe green, no, I’m hoping for blue, because it’s got the blue foil here.

It is blue. Look at that! Oh these are really cool nice, nice. I know that they have these in the just monthly, which I did you. I did use that for a little while this past year, at the very beginning of the years, are the years of the year of 2019 um but yeah. I never really got into like the daily one, just because it was just you know. I have my regular life planner. It was just too much for me to use like a bajillion different planners, I’m just not that girl, like I just can’t be.

I know there’s a lot of player people that use a lot of different planners and I just can’t get into it. So, oh, no, all right! So let me pull up and see if they have this yet. Okay, so doesn’t look like these specific ones are out. Yet but the ones that they have online there’s the regular petit planners, I believe they all have a sticker sheet in the back to our $ 14. So I’m not sure if these are going to be $ 14, but usually, if you buy the whole bundle like the January through December, there’s a little bit of a discount.

If you can get them on the bundle so anyway kind of cool and to go along with this, they sent a pouch thing. I do have one of these already, which is the the gold metallic. Let me put these off to the side here, so we can look at this a little bit better, I’m going to zoom you guys out justice, coach yeah, and this is just a really pretty wine color, and let me see this is online. I swear I’ve seen this already, so this is called the on-the-go folio.

I can never remember what anything is called guys like. I just I don’t know my brain does not function. Sometimes so it’s the on-the-go folio and they are currently retailing for $ 20 on the website. However, this maroon color is not on the website just yet that it actually looks really black coming off on camera. But I think when I add it I’ll be able to show you guys the color a little bit better.

It does have the embossed little asterisks right there, which is really pretty and then on. The inside. You’ve just got the four strings you know kind of strong through like normal and how these are kind of the wrong way. I’m going to fix that there we go great so um. The idea is, you can put up to four books in here and just go like a debt, and the funny thing is: is that in my Erin Condren cart? Currently I hadn’t checked out.

Yet I had a what do I have in my car hold on. Let me even tell you, I currently have a monthly deluxe, planner or deluxe monthly planner in my cart for 2020, because at work I am part of this team called the fun committee and we do a lot of clearly. We try to make it fun, but we do like infants and we do all like the birthday cake day things every once a month and all of that stuff. So we do have quite a bit of meetings to kind of like brainstorm and go throughout things.

So anyway, I wanted a monthly deluxe, because I was wanting to write down some notes, but maybe I’ll just use this and then just bring this to work so how it would actually be pretty ideal. So yeah plus I mean clearly we don’t do stuff every single day, but this would kind of just be like an overview of our events and we have cake day the third Wednesday of every month and then like. If we have other events happening and then like when we have meetings, you can just write notes in here.

I can just use this. You know the insights for notes as well, which to me works really well, but yeah. I think that would solve my problem. Probably a couple notes pages back here, but to be honest, I’ll probably use this mostly for you know, meeting notes and what we went over and just like to do task list, items and stuff like that and whatnot so yeah. So now I’m really glad I got this, not that I wasn’t happy before, but it’s like oh wow.

What is this alright, so that is it for my PR haul. I hope you guys enjoyed it taking a peek at some of the new things that are coming to the website. I know I couldn’t give you pricing on some of the stuff, because I had no information about it, but I will leave the link for Erin Condren down below if it’s your first time shopping with Erin Condren. There is a special link for you that gives you $ 10 off of your first purchase.

You just have to sign up and then Erin Condren will actually send you out a few different emails, but one of them will be a unique $ 10 off coupon code. For you to enjoy off of your first purchase and then if you have shopped with Erin Connor before there is a another link for you guys, and that is an affiliate link. So I do appreciate, when you guys choose to use that link to shop, because I do get a small commission from all of those sales.

So thank you guys so much that have used it and thank you to everybody that will possibly use it in the future. So anyway, I kind of had a lazy day planned, but you know what I’m going to do is. I am going to set this up for the fun committee, so I’m really um anyway. So that’s going to be it for me. Thank you guys so much for hanging out. Thank you to the Erin Condren team for thinking of me and sending me all these goodies, and I will just see you guys in the next article bye guys well folks, it’s time to kick it old school

Finding Planner Peace

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Organize With Me | Planner Sticker Storage

I will put it up in a card for you guys. I had some sticker organization that was working so so well for me, but in the last year or so it just hasn’t been functioning for me properly. I’m going to just explain what I had before and then we’re going to get into how I’m going to be organizing from here on out.

I had these clear pouches from Erin Condren. They had like the zip. You know things right here and I labeled them with Christian design stickers of what they were like this one was food. This one was working YouTube and I had tons of different categories and I would just put my planner stickers in here and then I actually had a pouch. This is actually the pouch I used. I don’t know if they have this design anymore, but these are those just like neoprene pouches that they have and then once they had all of their stickers in them.

I would just throw them in here, however, this got really full and even though I go through my stickers all the time, I do get a lot of stickers and PR and things like that – and I do try to you – know – trim them down from time to Time I was noticing that this little slide on some of them had broken off, because I had like used it too much and also I wasn’t very nice on my stuff and also like some of the seams had kind of ripped down.

I just stuffed them way too, full it’s, not the products fault. It was like totally my own fault, so we’re not going to do this anymore, but what I am going to do is take some inspiration. If you guys follow Jen Mackintosh on Instagram, she has her own blog too. I cannot remember the name of it for the life of me, but I will put it down below as well. For you guys, I saw the top of her Raskob card and I have a Raskin card as well and if you guys want to see a Raskin carte organization like obviously I’m going to be done with this by then.

Let me know in the comments down below or give the article a thumbs up. It just lets me that you got ta know that you guys want to see that I saw the top of her Ascot cart and she had the most genius idea. These are other pouches from Erin Condren they’re, just like a little envelope, which I absolutely love and there’s two different designs. There is this gold one and then there’s also a silver one that has like little polka dots on it, but I thought this would be really nice.

This is the one that she had, because I have an idea on the tops of hers. She actually put like right over here. I can’t remember if it was over here a little sticker. That said what was in there and that’s how she stores her stickers and I was like girl. I need to do that with mine. The issue I had with these, as they were a little bit too small, so if you can see the size comparison and not all my stickers would fit in this smaller one like the one that has the little white design on them.

So I have tested out some of the bigger stickers and they do fit in here, which is awesome and with the slides not working like even this one. Now it’s this one, oh, I was playing with the other one before this one is only open on the one side and see how this is like it’s hard to see, but this one’s already kind of ripping down this one just cause it’s a snap closure would Make it so much easier to kind of just get in and out of I just I don’t know I really like it.

So what I’m going to do is I’ll move all that away. I just got this Christine designs order in the mail and then she had sent, I think, with all her orders. Now they have like a little sampler, which is super cute, but I really wanted to get these a gold half buck, not half boxes but little event stickers. So I got a couple of these to work with there’s like a purple and and green, and then I have the bigger ones as well.

So I got two of the purple two of the green, but really what I’m going to be using is the gold glitter boxes here, because I do want to copy Jen’s stuff and put this little sticker up here and then I think for the bigger stickers. I want to put it you know somewhere on the front or maybe right here by the clasp or something like that so like, if I’m looking at it like this, I kind of know what it is versus like this way.

But the idea is one all of your envelopes. I’ve got a few, let me show you, but when all your envelopes are kind of sitting upwards, they’re going to all have the description of what is in there. So then you can just you know, grab which one you want and then go from there. So I’m really excited about this little object here. Oh I should say I don’t know if I said this. These are from Aaron Cohn and I will link the Erin Condren website down below, for you guys and when I bought these they were on sale, I’m not sure if the sale is still going on again, you can check the links down below, so I’ve actually been Out of this motive organization, for a little while – and let me show you guys what I’ve been using y’all are going to laugh.

I’ve been using plastic bags, so this one is labeled a celebration and like this one is labeled beauty. Yeah, it’s been a challenge, so I have been in this stuff for a little while, but you know what it’s been working for me and that’s really all that matters so they’re all just like in this big tote sitting. Next to me, is I’m going to pull all of them out, put them on my table here and then I’ll be able to write down my categories and then stuff my envelopes as I go, oh, and I also wanted to show you guys – I got these today In the mail as well, I got these in the mail as well, so these are get from Libyan Co.

I actually bought these because Jodi at life’s organized cast showed these on her blog and I was like I need those for sure these are from Libyan Cote and they’re, just like the little cash envelopes. So if you guys follow the Dave Ramsey system – or maybe you do like allowance for your kids or something like that or use cash for certain things – these are great little icons and I also got a ton of like fall themed things which I’m like super kind Of pumped about – because you don’t really see things in this colorway too often like the beige is Browns and like the burnt orange and the like nice cranberry, color, like from here over, is kind of my jam, the other stuff, it’s okay, but um yeah.

I got a lot of functional stickers for the Fall. I feel like with all my samplers and all that stuff, I’m always running out of stuff in the fall time. So I just got a bunch of these because I thought they looked really cute and you know need right: it’s a need situation, so let’s do the first one together as always, and then we will speed through the rest. So when you get these they most of them that I have, I think there was like, maybe one or two that didn’t have this.

They have like a little too you in the middle, and you don’t really need that. That’s just kind of maybe show the design, but the front part of this is completely clear, so there’s not like design on design. If that makes sense, and then I’ll snap that closed and the first thing I’m going to do is my category of shopping, as you can see, there’s like all these Target stickers. Currently, alright, I’m just going to start with one of these and write shopping.

Also, with the same idea, I’m going to do shopping right up here, alright, and I think what I’m going to do is. I want to start at the so there’s like a little design here and then the design kind of breaks right there. So I think I’m going to do it like right at the break. Maybe I don’t know Nona try to align the top of the word as much as possible. So now you see it says shopping. Oh, it’s kind of hard to see hold on guys.

Let me get you guys a little bit further in oh, it’s hard to see hold on move things out of the frame and then maybe it’ll show up yeah see now it says shopping so when it’s all lined up you’ll be able to see all the things That are in there, so I’m pumped about that and then this half box I want to put – I don’t know – maybe right here – maybe here yeah, maybe here’s better because I feel like if I put it like right here, my fingers going to like keep touching it All the time and it’ll, maybe like you, know, get kind of gunky, so yeah, that’s the first one and then let me get my bag out she’s such a funny way to do it.

I’m sure that there’s other like really great ways to store your stickers, but you know you’re just going to do what it works best for you. So then all my shopping stickers are in here and this category is done. I’m very excited about it and let me do the rest of them and I’ll speed. This thing up for you guys and hopefully I’ll find some good music for you too, all right, so I am all done, I’m so excited to show you guys.

The end result. Let’s use the Doyle one just for funsies and why isn’t focusing here? We go. Let’s focus up kids, alright, imma zoom, you out just a little bit for just a moment. On the very front I have the half box that I used from Christian designs. If you guys are interested in SCADA, 0, 7, 7, 7 and then at the very top, it says Doyle as well, and then this sheet was kad. 0. 0, 7, 8, 3 I’ll live I’ll, live no I’ll leave it.

The Christian designs link down below for y’all love the way that this works and then I just open it up and there is a ton of different. You know, doyle related stickers, and things like that. So I know that this is my doyle category and i’m not going to show you every single one, because that would be like way too long of a article and i’m sure y’all are not interested in that. So now, when I set up everything standing up in my raskov, it shows exactly what I’m working with so like this one: a celebration, beauty, military, functional health and then Doyle.

Those are the categories right here. Let me grab some more and I will show you my other ones, and here are some other ones to share Countdown’s household food, random, which basically, I have like emoji stickers in there, but there’s some other really random things in there that I do not fit into Any category and then travel and then my last few categories are shopping, sports, samplers, seasonal and work.

So that is it for how I am reorganizing my planner stickers, storage. I would love to know how you guys store your stickers. I’ve used the binder method in the past for a lot of my stuff, and it really only works for me with my Christian designs, stuff, just cuz, it’s already like pre-punched and everything, and I have quite a lot of it – and I’ve tried different kind of like Filing systems and those haven’t worked, and, of course you guys saw if you readed my article that had these ones in there.

It worked really well for a long time, but it just doesn’t suit. My needs anymore, but I think that’s like the fun of organizing, like I think, organizing spoons. Some people absolutely hate it, but I absolutely love it is. Sometimes it suits your needs for a little while and then you have to modify it to fit your life as it is right now. So this is how I am choosing to store all of my planner stickers and if, for some reason, I have a sheet, that’s a little bit bigger than this.

It’s very easy to just trim that down and then throw it in the little pocket envelope, which I love, oh and by the way. The back is pattern to. I don’t know if I said that also, I forgot to say the pen that I am using. It was the pilot ultrafine point permanent marker in the blue, and the reason that I used the Christian design stickers over any other sticker like that’s more papery, is her stickers are more of like a like a matte vinyl.

I go so I don’t know they’re kind of they’re not really glossy, but they’re, not matte, either. It’s very strange, but it’s an awesome sticker paper is, I felt like these would hold up as I’m like grabbing for things, and you know my nails are on things or whatever, like just the paper ones, get a little bit scratched up and they’re, not as durable When I’m using it for something like this, that I’m going to be grabbing all the time, so I thought that these would be really good and they held up really really well in this fashion.

Before so – and I there’s like nowhere on any of these – and I was using these all the time so anyway, that is going to be it for me. Thank you so much for reading. Let me know what your storage methods are down below feel free to thumbs up the article if you liked it subscribe. If you want to be part of the fde family – and I will see y’all in the next one – bye guys well folks, it’s time to kick it old-school.

Mileage Tracker Setup | 2019 Business Planner |#ECDeluxeMonthlyPlanner

First I’ll tell you about the business planner in a moment, so I’m going to be using this. This actually came with a planner that I got already, but it didn’t come with this specific planner. This one came with my Erin Condren life planner for 2019.

It has the woven, wonder, pattern on it, I’m going to use it because I’m going to be making a little chart and then this pin is the pilot. Ultrafine point permanent marker and I’m going to be using this on some of my Christian design stickers, which I’ll show you in just a moment and then also this Erin Condren, dual tip marker, which is why my finger is blue at the moment, because I just filmed Another article before and tried to clean up something and made him whatever um and then also I have this washy sample from my shop link is below as well as a little coupon code if you’re interested – and this is kind of like a transportation washi, I believe, Is what I ended up, calling it, and then I have this sheet from a coffee break planner that has like these little road stickers and then some little cars, which I think is awesome.

I’m also going to be using these two sticker sheets from chrissy and designs, and I will link her shop below as well as everything all the other sources that I’m using today, including the pins. And this is kad – 0, 0, 2, 3, 2. And then I’m almost out of this sheet, I always get like really excited when I finish a sheet, I’m not going to finish the sheet today, but I get very excited. I know some people feel really really sad when they finish a sheet, but I feel the complete opposite.

So this one is kad: 0, 0, 4, 8, 5 and then the planner that I am currently using for my business is an Erin Condren, deluxe monthly planner and I got the 12 I got. It only comes in a 12-month version. I’m trying to like get my words right. It only comes in a 12-month version, but I did get January through December and I got the maximum amount of notes pages possible and I believe it was a hundred and twenty.

Don’t quote me on that, but you could get a ton of notes pages. I will also leave links below to all the other things that I have set up in this plan. Basically, half the planner is notes pages and I have done a bunch of other tracking setup in those notes. Pages are ready, so, let’s get on to the article. So I’m going to start by using the washy and actually, let’s, let’s move some things around and make it a little bit easier for everybody to see make sure the whole class can see.

Oh, don’t zoom out, you got ta zoom in okay, perfect, alright! So this is like a little road scene and then I use this little bookmark from Chris or not Christian today, as well whoo all right start over again. I use this little bookmark from Erin Condren. It’s just one of those snap in ones there you go. I’m just kind of smoothing out the washi all right, and then I thought underneath that this little road, washi you’re, not washing about Road strips sticker from coffee break planner, would look really really cute and I think it’s about the right size, even though I I realized On the washi there on a road, but when I have things like arty in my arsenal, I love using them up.

It’s like one of my favorite things. Oh there’s like a little tail there we go, oh, that I feel like that. Just like really defines it a lot more. I like that a lot very cute, okay, so on to the tracking I am going to be putting in a few different things, I’m going to use oh darn it – maybe I won’t use these Bert Bert Bert. Actually, yes, I can still make it work. I was going to use the purple, but then there’s no purple in the washi.

I thought that there was a little bit of purple, but it’s more like a primary color situation, but there is there’s some blue. So I’m going to use this blue and then I’ll use some other colors here, so I’m going to put in date destination miles and then, like a total like a cumulative total at the end actually know, I’m suddenly used the same sheet, but just like at the Same type of sheet, but just a different one, if I want to use, I think I’m just going to use the yellows like something in this spectrum of the yellows, because I got that little ambulance right there, okay, so now I have them all written down.

So, let’s peel these a bad boys off I’m going to put the date on the left hand, side there. We go took a moment to peel off here and then we’ve got the destination, I’m just kind of centering it in the middle of the line, because I’m going to do a little something in a moment and then I’m going to take total and put that at The very very end can I just see how much space I have to work with here, I’m going to kind of hang, I’m going to hang this one over just a little bit because the miles are going to get you know bigger as the year goes on And then miles will just go right over here.

That is, crooked. Okay hold hold on all right, not crooked anymore. At least I don’t think so I mean you guys will tell me in the comments. I am sure what I think I’m going to do is I’m going to use another one of these strips cuz. You know if you have it, why not use it and I’m going to use this line as a guide for myself actually hold on. I keep messing everything up today. All right hold on I’m going to use.

Do this over one more time, just a little bit over and awesome. Think about coffee break planner stickers is, they are matte removable and I have removed stuff from like eight months ago with really like no issue, and it not. You know coming up on my paper or anything like that. The paper didn’t like rip off or anything like that, and I can still use the sticker, which is kind of cool. So I am going to make a little line on here.

So I’m going to be using my Erin Condren, dual tip marker and I open up the wrong side. We are going to use the fine point for this. All that we’re going to just put that up there for a moment. All right move this little guy over. I’m also going to use this sheet from Christian designs. It is the K ad is 0. 0 is 7 5. I’m going to be used this little yellow a sticker. That’s got some polka dots in there and just write mileage tracker on here.

All right, I’m just going to plop this up on the top there and I think I’m going to use 2 of these little blue cars. Also from that coffee break planner thing and then just put these two little blue cards on there. Cuz there’s a blue car here. You know you guys know. I, like my consistency and know my car is not blue. Oh my gosh, I’m! So sorry you were not in the frame. Oh I’m horrible! I’m sorry guys this whole time once in a while.

I should look up at the viewfinder I mean just once in a while, but clearly I am a failure, but now you can see what I was working on. Oh my gosh, I feel so stupid whoops. It up see. Oh well. I hope you guys could forgive me also. I just noticed this. I love this little blue car. I’m going to put this next to this little destination too cuz. You know cuteness and whatnot. Ok now I now I’m done after you guys didn’t see any of this stuff that I showed great.

This is fabulous alright, so I’m going to move this little guy down here, it’s just kind of off camera at the moment. Alright. So this is my mileage tracker for my business planner for 2019. If you guys track mileage, let me know how you do it like if you do it in a decorative way like this, I know, there’s like apps and stuff like that, that you can do on your phone, but if you track it in like a paper way, Let me know in the comments down below what you use.

Also, if you have any questions, let me know down below, I will link all the sources as well as my nail color. I get a lot of questions on my nails recently, so I will leave that in a link down below for you guys as well, if you, like, the article, make sure to give it a thumbs up, feel free to subscribe. If you’d like to join the fde family – and I will see you guys in the next one – bye guys well folks, it’s time to kick it old school

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.
