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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Well, that’s cute! I’ve never used one of these stickers before very cute. I think I think, all right, so that is it for this week. I hope you guys enjoyed the article. Sorry, it’s been so long since I’ve been online, but there are more articles to come actually filming a couple right after this. So you’ll see some more in your inbox this week. If you click that little Bell notification, then YouTube, ideally, is supposed to be sending you an email when I upload.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I actually went completely by myself. Didn’t have a roommate, nothing, but I still had a blast and then this year it’s going to be in Vegas, which will be so much fun. I am very, very excited about that and yeah. I hope to see you all there. So again, the link will be down below for you guys for the information as to how to snag your own ticket on Monday, and I believe, don’t quote me on this, but I believe that the tickets go on sale at 1 p.

M. It’s due there, like 1:00 P.M. Or noon Central Standard Time – I don’t know for sure, I’m sorry. I wish I knew so yeah well that it for this week. I hope you guys enjoyed the article and all of my ranting about my stupid furnace, but whatever it’s going to get taken care of and happy 12th birthday to mr. Doyle and yeah, that’s it. Thank you guys so much for reading. I really appreciate it all. The links will be down below to all the shops that I can find, and I will talk to you all in the next article bye guys well, folks is time to kick it old school

March 2019 | Petite Monthly Planner #ErinCondren

To be honest, I’ve just been a little uninspired with my like regular planner. I just don’t like it, but you know I get in these ruts. Sometimes – and I know a lot of you do too, but today I wanted to share this planet right here, which I’ve actually really been liking, and I am going to be doing since I do back planning I’m going to be sharing my month of March.

So this is the Erin Condren, 2019 monthly planner. I believe these are called the petit planners they’re. Just like I don’t know like a bound flexible planner. Oh whoops, I already put the washi I want to use in here, but yeah, it’s just it’s a lot smaller than the regular life planner. As you can see – and I don’t know – I just really like these – and I think it’s nice because you could like throw it in your bag or put it in your like drawer at work or just even like leave it on your desk at work or whatever.

But yeah so I mean I think I did a article on this a while ago with a bunch of other things and, to be honest, I haven’t been using the other things at all, but I really like this, so this is what I did in January. You know not a ton but some stuff and then in February I really slacked but anyways in March. I haven’t done anything yet, but I have my other calendar off to the side here. So we’re going to fill some things in.

Let me see if I can kind of get this to lay a little flatter. I know we’re kind of in the beginning and then anyways all the way through. So it has the whole year and then it has like a ton and notes pages that are aligned, which is nice, and it’s got like a little flap right here. If you want to, you know, throw like an invitation in there or some paperwork that you need or whatever so anyway, let’s get to planning y’all, I haven’t pulled out any stickers.

I just pulled out some washi because there’s something that I need to put in for the washi situation, so the first thing I’m going to put in is on the same day I had two different kind of food dates with people, so I got ta find some Appropriate stickers for that you need to find myself some, like smaller event stickers. I think I have some here in my Christian designs, binder, not really sure we are going to see what I have, because these boxes are way smaller than like this, which is like you know, normally fits like an Erin Condren vertical, but I think, have some smaller Ones in here I’ve got way too much Christian design stuff in here, but I guess you can never.

You can never have enough right, guys. Okay, where does little that? Yes, maybe you don’t have any more use them up? Hmm yeah! Ah, this is what I’m looking for right here. These guys right there now, if y’all, are interested, it’s the ka D, 0, 0, 2, 3, 2. So all right, I’m going to pull this one out and use up what a can of that, and I got my pens as always alright. So the first thing was, I had lunch with my friend Heather and we just went to Panda Express we both kind of work by each other, so she actually works from home, but that week she didn’t.

So we made a lunch date, and this month I’m not going to be like really going with any specific theme at all. I have these little guys. I think this sticker company I couldn’t find a while ago. I don’t know I mean I’ll link everything down below whatever I can find so, but yeah. I got these a long time ago like when I first started planning and I still love them and then also that same evening um.

I did a little go wild thing with Jodi and Ryan and I don’t know if I’ve posted this yet by the time that this goes up. But these are like all my go: wild stickers that I have purchased for the trip, so I figured I would use. Maybe one of these some of these something like that, I don’t know and just see you see what I want to use in here – maybe able to use one of these that has like a little go wild on here.

This is from planner topia. I only have so much room to write, earn all right, I’m going to have to cut this one for sure, but we met up for some dinner that evening, which was delicious then the next day these are from my studios. I actually bought our pajamas because we talked to all about it, so I’m just going to put here by pajamas up just a little bit super cute all right and that Wednesday I also had a QC meetings.

I’m going to put that in lots of quality control at work yay. I have that and then actually at a doctor’s appointment on Thursday met with doctor lady, so much fun. Guy is so much fun, not really, but you know whatever right. I got these cute little doctor people who’s put that in and since were on the doctor theme. Because of that doctor’s appointment, I had an ultrasound everything’s, fine, I’m fine Dori! I had an ultrasound the next week, so we’re going to just put that in as well we’ll probably get questions.

No, I am not pregnant, because ultrasounds don’t necessarily mean that you’re pregnant okay, another doctor appointment sticker and do it like a dad I’ll put in another hello Doctor person, I think I said, was entirely a doctor’s appointment. It was just more of a like a tech appointment kind of a thing, but either way putting it in anyways all right. That was it for doctor stuff. I think yes, it was.

It was and then moving on to this week and I kind of jumped around sorry I was sick, so I had a migraine which really really stinks. So I chose not to work from home that day because migraine – and I didn’t want to look at a screen at all – all right and my Christian design spender. I’m going to use this. It says sick day, but there’s like a little tissue on here the suit these are like the Cindy lettering stickers, which are so cute, and I also have these once more with love headache stickers.

So I’m going to kind of put these together somehow some way I’ve never used one of these clearly. So let’s use a pink wine, and that was on this day right here. Oh I hate getting migraines you guys it just really sucks I’ll use. One of these little dudes – maybe I’ll, put it oh yeah yeah here I’ll, put it right over the little tissues because I didn’t have a cold. I had a migraine which made no fun, no fun, guys, no fun all right and then I’m Tuesday.

I had an oil change and I just found these stickers. I cut them all up, because I’ve stored my stickers in like a bajillion different ways, so these are actually from Adriana Piper, which are super cute and it’s like a whole. I don’t know if she still has the sticker sheet. Maybe she does I’m not really sure I bought these a long time ago like years ago, but it’s like a big kind of like car maintenance like auto maintenance sheet, so yeah but yeah.

I did that on the 12 and I’m just going to write that it was at 5:00 p.M. Okay, perfect and then I don’t really have anything notable for the rest of the week and then now I need some washi and this washi. I got from Michaels and it was part of the first Christian designs launch at Michaels. I know there’s like a second season right now. I don’t know if it’s a season, I’m probably calling it the wrong thing.

Sorry Kristen! If you’re reading, I’m not really sure, but there was like a you know like new stuff, which is kind of cool, I haven’t you know. To be honest, I haven’t been to a Michaels in such a long time, but I did get some of the Christian design stuff for Michaels. This is part of the washi that I had purchased and it doesn’t come on a bobbin like this. I just rolled it onto a bobbin cuz. That’s how I store my washi.

I you know, don’t prefer it in a full roll. That’s just me, and then let’s see, I should do this as well I’ll mark down what these are in just a minute, all right. So at work, my coworker that works remotely was here during this time and then I had to do some training with her remotely cuz. She was back in her home then, and she works from out of state. So we did lots of training together this week.

All right, her name is Sarah. I’m going to use one of these little cute stickers from mom. Let’s see here, plan about it. Burke there we go. These are the these. Are the tiniest desks that I have you cute cute all right, so we did that and then sadly, my cell phone, that I had it was like a Apple 7 plus. I think it was overnight that night. My alarm didn’t go off that morning, because my phone just completely like a blacked out, didn’t like you know like I couldn’t start it again.

I couldn’t do anything so anyways. I had to go get a new phone at the Apple Store, but first I like made an appointment at the Apple store and did all of that stuff. So I had to leave a work just a little bit earlier than I normally would that day. Just to take care of that, and then I ended up getting the iPhone X are ya, iPhone XR! That’s what it is like the newest phone. So anyway, I’m just going to like put XR on here and go for it looks good to me.

I don’t really need more explanation than that all right, so that what happened that day, how fun spending money I didn’t want to spend ooh, and then I need sports stuff, probably the first time. I’ve said that in a article and then Wednesday, I went to one of our sports stadiums. What is it US Bank Stadium here in the Twin Cities and the NCAA is going to be in town? At some point I don’t know my company, the company that I work for is providing some of the products to convert a football stadium into a basketball Stadium.

So anyway, I went there and got a tour of the progress and what they were doing on the 20th, and you know it’s kind of cool. It was really very, very interesting so and then Sarah and I both went so. It was kind of cool that she was in town while that was happening and then basketball, even though there was no basketball being played, there wasn’t even a court up yet ooh and then I need another. One.

Look good look at me and all my sports stuff. This month actually did a lot of sports stuff this month, cool all right, and then I had a meeting on the 21st about some HR stuff, but it actually was about something that was happening at my like building facility, so I’ll put a little baseball because it Was about a baseball themed thingamajiggy so put that there well there’s so many sports all right and then here I’m going to write in what I was doing.

I was shell training. Okay, my camera just cut off and I don’t know what the last thing that I said, but I’m going to put in here that I was Michelle training. So that’s what I wasn’t doing that day or those days I should say, did it for two days, but once Sara was here, she was like teaching me how to properly do the shelves so yeah that’s kind of cool. I also put a sign on my desk. That said, I was closed and if you needed any help to call Sara, but some people respected the sign.

Other peoples did not respect the sign, so it you know it took me. It took me a lot longer than I thought so, but that’s alright. I got the job done and yeah I’ll probably be doing more acoustical shells of it of it as soon so. My work bestie Jamie. We sit across from each other um. She is obsessed with Jonathan Venice from queer eye and she has gotten me on the jvn train so he’s actually coming into.

I don’t know it’s like not a concert, but it’s like I don’t know, he’s coming and he’s doing something. I don’t know exactly what he’s doing, but he’s going to be at the Minnesota State Theatre. This fall, but the tickets went on sale this day, so we bought tickets and we are going and we were both very very excited. So I have these cute little admit: won tickets plan about it. Jv antics to say that like she’s pumped, is like a little bit of an understatement, but I’m pretty pumped to I’m very excited.

We’re going to have fun fun, fun, all right and then on Thursday was the Minnesota Twins home opener, and that’s what I had to talk to HR about, because I was kind of like hosting it for my building, so they just needed some help with some things. So, hmm, I don’t have like a blue or a red which is, I know what I want. Let’s see what else I can find around here. Alright, here we go. There is red stickers right there yeah.

I just want to write lunch, so the company provided lunch for us this day, which was very nice of them, and then I have these from paper in clips and they’re like the Minnesota Twins logo. So just put that right there and maybe we’ll put a baseball, because I have him out why not there we go lunch, possum, okay and then on Saturday I had another go wild fun thing happen. I went over to Ryan’s house from a man with the plans and we had like a little brunch and Jodi.

Was there too, and we just kind of like discussed, go wild stuff. So it was kind of good and Ryan made this like really yummy egg bake, which was delicious and Ryan made this like super yummy, like egg bake thing, it was delicious thanks, Ryan, if you’re reading it was really really good, and then I actually just got these In the mail not too long ago, I had purchased these from Erin Condren and this is like the go wild set.

So maybe I’m going to use these hmm. What should I do? Oh that doesn’t fit. Oh you know what I could put it right here. That’s alright! I don’t have like things to do so. Maybe I want to use like some other go wild stickers that I have over here. Alright and I’m going to use this sticker right here that says: go wild Las Vegas from planner topia. Put that right! Oh gosh, look, I can’t do anything.

Okay, I got a whole new plan. Now, oh my gosh, losing it see. This is like real life of when you really, you know, mess up some things and you didn’t think about it before. So you done messed up. Mmm mmm I’m going to use a sticker now because that’s all right, though okay, so I’m just going to put this like little bit above it yeah, okay, cool all right. I like that, that’s good! For me! Oh and I forgot to put I purchased art.

I saw I bought pajamas on this day because we had like a conversation about it and then I believe that Friday yeah it was that Friday I purchased our airline tickets. You know so we could like all be in the same row or whatever. So that was good, so I’m going to use this from planner trophy, it’s just called air travel and, let’s see which color should I use. I don’t know, let’s use one of the pink ones.

That was just the first one here. Why not I’m just going to write Minneapolis to Las Vegas? Okay, I’m done now, oh, my goodness, alright, so that is it for my March monthly view in my 2019 monthly planner from the petite palana line. I hope you guys enjoyed this article, I’m going to be using this for the next month as well. So I actually have something in here already: hair appointment, 5:30 yay.

So yeah I’m going to be using this for next month and I will probably be filming a article if you guys are interested in this.

Let me know if you guys are interested – and I can you know, make this a monthly thing if this is kind of what I’m going to stick to.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

This is one that you can actually customize your own blobby and have a whole sheet of blobbies blobbies like the little the little guy or girl or thing. I don’t know what you want to call it, but like blaaah, be at a desk because, yes and then again I got a bunch of the sampler ones. So these are like the little blobbies like the tiny blobbies. So this one says 19 d4 and then b4 and I’ve used some of them like there’s a couple like holes missing because, like I said, I’ve had these for a little while and then these are like the regular set.

So sorry, these are like the regular sized blobbies and blobby variety. This is blobby variety for just think, so these are so much fun and then we have blobby variety, one and then variety, three and then variety. Five there’s, like I said, there’s there’s holes missing because I love blobby so much and I think I have another order in with her right now, but oops whoopsie also at go wild. I have been putting off buying these for a while, and I went to the Avery like work center or, like I don’t know they had like a big display and they have these in there.

These are marks a lot permanent markers and they are so good. I’m going to link an Amazon link for you guys they are amazing. I actually tested these out and they’re fantastic. I usually use this, which is the pilot ultrafine point permanent marker, which I love, but these work just as well, if not better, and they work awesome on Christian design stickers. They work awesome on any vinyl stickers as well.

So I highly recommend them and I am going to be taking these up to my office in just a moment and I am going to be putting them where they belong. So in my p.O box I got a very, very kind note from a subscriber and her name is Alyssa. So Thank You Alyssa for thinking of me and sending me these. I thought these were too cute not to share, so I just wanted to send these or share these with you guys, so it’s from Callie, pi, stickers and I’ll leave the link down below and so there’s some like washi strips she clearly reades my articles cuz.

It’s all like budget-conscious kind of things, so we’ve got like some ATM money things. We’ve got some calculators like a little safe, some bags of money, some little piggy banks, more washi, strips thicker, washi strips and then she’s got these, which are really interesting. Like you know, budgeting and then like income, budgeted expenses, that’s really neat and then like an expense tracker, and then all of these are like a no spend.

Oh, that’s really cool. Like I looked through some of these but anyways I like that. This is a green, and this is like purple. Like looks like you can pick, oh this one’s like more of a pink and a blue and then a black. So you can pick your own. That’s really neat! So thank you. So much for thinking of me. I am very appreciative of all of these fun things, so thank you, so much Alisa all right next up plan to plan sticker Co, I’m kind of mildly obsessed with this company.

I just can’t get enough of them, so this is one of their samplers that they had sent out, which is so cute, and I got a bunch of stickers, so I got some like lady doctor.

2019/2020 Planner Choice | Erin Condren

If you guys have been following me on social media or you’ve, seen my past couple of articles about this, I will leave a link in the cards as we kind of go along. This was the first planner that I got in PR and I got to pick everything out which was fabulous, but then I went to go wild, oh by the way.

This is the colorful version of the hourly layout in the gold coil July through June. Okay, so that being said, I went to go wild, which was fabulous by the way and I was invited to an Erin Condren party and there was erin condren binders out, even in just like the general admission areas, and I got to looking at the binder and I was like oh, I need that too, and the color way for this I feel like is so pretty so it was torn.

So then, on launch day, I ordered this I’ll leave the article up in a cart. If you want to look at this a little bit more in detail, so I got this and I’m like. I love this too. What am I going to do so? I thought about it for awhile and I really thought about, like my planning style, like what I like and if you guys know anything about me. I am a very like neutral person in my normal daily life, but in my planner I feel like I’m a colorful person, so I decided on the colorful.

However, I didn’t decide on this one. I was a little sneaky and ordered something else. So I got this: this is the Navy binder. I wanted to see the Navy – and this is the gray binder, which I’ll show you in a second and the colorful our Lee is inside of here. So I think that this is. This is the one guys. This is the one, so let me show you what’s inside and how I set this up so hold on. Let me move this for just a second, so this planner and this planner are going to go to some friends.

I change the cover on this because I wanted to use the cover in my binder and I’ll explain why in just a moment, so this is going to be given to a friend and then this one here I started moving into this just be like completely honest And my contacts page in here is gone because I started playing with it and I’m like oh gosh. What’s in great so yeah, the contacts page has gone in here, but I will still give this a to a planner friend that I know will absolutely love it.

I want to talk about the binder for just a quick second, this really bothers me. I feel like you have to like hold everything for it to like properly closed. If that makes sense like it doesn’t I don’t know it closes, don’t get me wrong, but I feel like if you don’t kind of like push everything to the middle of the binder clip or whatever you want to call it. It just kind of hangs out hold up. Let me let me explain it a little bit more.

So if I didn’t help it, let’s move this. It would go like this. Do you see it? I’m saying like all that’s right there, okay anyway, so this needs a little like Oh needs a little help, and then this one’s good, alright. So that was the gray one which I think is beautiful as well, but I went with the Navy. I thought I wanted to see what the Navy look like and then, if I didn’t like the Navy, I could just swap the binders, but this is the Navy.

It’s gorgeous. You guys know that I don’t really like personalization, so I didn’t do that plus. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep this. This also has whoops the gold hardware as well, which is like my favorite, and then I put these big erin condren pockets on either side of the binder. So I’m going to be keeping these in here. That’s for coffee, brick, planner and they are like little transparent, dots and I’ll.

Show you how I use those in just a moment, but I’m going to keep those are right there and then I have another one right here and you get a packet too, and the Erin Condren website will be linked below for you guys. This is one of bookmarks and I used this to cut washi mainly, and then I took my old cover off of my coil bound planner and put it in here, and the reason I did that is because of that issue I was just talking about so I Have the back cover in here as well, so I feel like when I’m ready to close this up.

I can just easily go like this and I feel like I’m not going to tear the pages if that makes sense like if there’s something like kind of hard behind it. So that’s how I am going to use that so anyway yeah. So this is what I’m going to use. I was actually talking to a co-worker of mine recently because they wanted me to bring in my planner, because some of them have decided to become Erin Condren fans as well, so she was like wow.

This is so colorful. I’m like yeah, I know she’s like I would have just never thought that you would be a really colorful person, and I said you know the only place that I’m colorful in my life is inside of my planner and that’s kind of like what threw me over The edge of like okay, I need a colorful planner, there’s just no way around it. This is very similar from last year. I track a few different things, and all of these stickers are from coffee, brick.

Planner. There is a link down below, as well as a coupon code, if you all are interested for 20 % off, but I track my cycle, which is why I have these over here because clearly I don’t know when that’s going to be happening and then I have All my paydays and then I have work holidays in here too. If I decide to track something else, I’ll put it up here with a key and then I have a bunch of different colors.

She has a ton of different colors in these little transparent dots. So anyway, this goes from july 2019 through a December 2020, and then here I’m not sure what I’m going to do last year. I ended up doing like home projects, but I’m not sure what I want to do this year, so we’re just going to like leave it for now and let it marinate you know and then July July is clearly not here. Yet I’m still in the end of May, when I’m filming this so for July, I really don’t have anything major going on.

I did decide to open up my little package of long sticky notes and put one on every single month. So if there’s like birthdays or special events that I need to remember or something like that, I have them, you know a little place to write them down. I did put in my garbage and then I do have a hair appointment on Wednesday. That day on the 24th so anyway, that is that that’s all I know what’s going on, but I absolutely love this.

I think this is so pretty. I kind of feel like with the neutral I’d kind of get sick of it. After a while, then, I feel like for me there’s more functionality in the colorful, even though I know some people are very anti. This, like color block here, but I don’t really mind it also something I decided to do, which I hope you can see on camera. It’s so hard cuz. This like viewfinder, is like teeny, tiny small.

Over here I decided to take some Christian designs, transparent stickers and put in like paydays into the current month that it shows down here. So this is July and then I have to get paid July 5th and July 19. So it’s just something to track and then also if I want to track something else or if I know if someone’s going on, I could do that as well. But I love this little thing down in the corner.

I love that change. I think that’s so nice and then I’ve got that little guy right there and then in to auto stand. Then again I did trash and stuff, but let’s go to the back and take a little gander at what’s in there, and then we have our notes pages. Oh something I should say I did not do. Is let’s see here. I put everything in here. However, not everything so I put everything in here through January.

Sorry, I’m kind of like all over the board today. So I put all my weeks up until January in here and then once February hits then I just put in the month and then, like you know, this is the back of the month and then I pushed it into the next month. So I have all of my other pieces of paper upstairs in my office, so when these months start to happen, can put them in here. I just didn’t want the binder to be totally full.

I wanted some extra room in here and not make it like. So bulky and I do have the room to store – you know the extra pages and whatnot. So that’s what I did for February through December of 2020. So but I do have you know my months out there, so I can always jot things down anyway. Now we’re into the notes section, and so we’ve got a few things that I actually did a little bit of planning before I filmed this article because I felt like if I did this on camera, it would be like hours long and I’m just like not all About that life anyway, and of course I did it at like mmm like 10:30 last night and there’s like no lighting at that point in my home, so anyway, I decided to do something really similar like I did last year, and I actually have it sitting right Off camera here, so this is my one from the previous year and then I put in like July through June, and these are just like tasks so like 2019, 2020 monthly tracking cute little house sticker there from coffee break planner.

And then I got these from Christian designs and then this washi is actually from Christian designs, but it’s available at Michael’s, only so very fun. So these are all the things that I want to achieve in the next year or so so I just want to like you know, have the task done so for me. Obviously yours is going to be a little bit different and if you have different categories like, let me know in the comments down below, maybe need to add some.

So anyway, I have a budget donations. I tend to donate something every single month or a bag of things clean out the fridge clean out the freezer clean out the pantry. That’s done sometimes weekly, but you know it’s something that I need to do at least once a month. My air filter. I don’t need to change it every single month, but it’s nice to see when I’m doing it. I think it’s about like every three months.

My color gun service is not every month, but it’s nice to see when the last time was checking smoke detectors. My bedding and blankets, organizing my files changing out my toothbrush head clean out the car, a car oil change, face, mask I’m trying to get better at that, like the whole self care thing, I don’t know it’s just like very difficult for me and I need to Just like make the time – I don’t know if you guys struggle with that too, and I’m like one to talk like I don’t have kids and I have a very like subdued life, but still it just sometimes it’s just difficult to make the time and then no Plastic bags: that’s like a big thing that I am going to try to start well, I’m actually already starting it, but I’m going to try to not use any plastic bags in the next year.

I have so many reusable bags. Those Erin Condren ones are just amazing and I love them, and I have so many of them in my car ready to go, and you know you pop into like CVS or Walgreens or the gas station or whatever, and I’m like. Why do I have this plastic bag? I should just always have a reusable bag in my bag. So that’s what I’ve been doing. It’s been working out really well and if I’m clearly like going to the grocery store I’ll put like five or six of them in my bag and if I don’t use them all great, but I would rather over pack then under pack, because they’re so lightweight anyways.

So I’m that’s like a goal of mine and I don’t know if it’s weird but that’s like something I want to do in the next year or so so anyway. Um there is my little dot grid pages and then I haven’t filled out my contacts yet because I didn’t want to be all creepy and stuff Here. I am going to put in all of my house stuff, so the name of the heating and air company. That I view is the name of the electrician.

I’ve been using my HOA contact, my mortgage company, like any like service related thing like culligan. They come over and do service in my home and, like anything house related I’d like to keep it in here, so I think that will be good and then oh over here I put in so this is January 20 January of 21 wow, that’s weird to say Through December of 21 – and I put in all of the pay days as well with those same stickers from Christian designs, those transparent circles – and then here are the sticker sheets, which I decided to put in the back here.

I might end up taking these out because a lot of times, if you guys have seen like any of my other planner articles a lot of times. I kind of forget that they’re back here and then I don’t end up using them. But if they’re in here, which is like my little Erin Condren sticker organizer, then I know that they’re here, so I might just end up putting these in here. Eventually, these are just all loose sticker sheets from Erin Condren that I love so anyway.

They’re in here for now, like I said I might, I might move them – I don’t know so yeah and then we’ve got these ones too. These are so nice very underrated, but very nice, and then I have my back cover to the coil planner, which I love that too, and then here there is that big pocket again, so you can slip something in there. I was actually going to use this. I decided I was going to put this hold on and here’s stop talking so these little flaps kind of replaced this and I already bought it, but I think I’m going to give that to someone that is going to take one of those planners.

What I did last you, which I absolutely loved, is when I was tracking this for like my cycle and stuff, I put this in here and had this little flap here and had this inside and it worked out great, but the more I thought about it. I was like you know I kind of like more streamlined like that. So anyway, this is going to go to the friend, so this kind of replaced that, but I mean everyone, just kind of needs to do what works for them.

So anyways that’s going to be it for me today. I just wanted to share with you guys what I am planning on using for the 2019 2020 year in my Erin Condren hourly. Please please. Let me know in the comments below what you’re going to be using to organize your life for the upcoming year, even if it’s not an Erin Condren, that’s okay! Even if it’s like your cell phone, that’s alright and if y’all are interested in any Erin Condren products.
