Home Improvement Tracker | #ECLifePlanner

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Donation Tracking 2018 | #ECLifePlanner

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Plan With Me | September 24th – 30th | #ECLifePlanner

I got ta tell ya. I’ve been back planning for a little while now and last weekend. I just didn’t get to the plan with me, unfortunately, and there’s just no natural light when I get home just because it’s now fall time in Minnesota, so yeah but anyway it is now Sunday into October, but I’m still going to plan out this week.

So you guys can see what I did and you know read all the pretty things so anyway, we are planning for the week of Monday September 24 through Sunday, September 30 and right after I’m done filming this bad boy. I am filming the next one as well. So anyway, um I pulled out a couple of wha she’s this one I don’t know where I got from, and I believe this one I got from my shop and yeah, so I’m just going to go with it PS.

My fingers are so dry and kind of just jacked up because of the weather change. Recently, it’s been really kind of irritating and I touch paper all day at work, so it’s even more irritating because of that, so it’s just kind of kind of a bar. So my hands are kind of chapped and kind of peeli. Oh, I don’t like the way that looks so yeah. Sorry, if my hands look a little weird today, alright, there we go.

Maybe I can line it up, Wow good job Emily. Sometimes I can’t line up my washi properly, but oh whoops, if I didn’t do these plan with me, articles it’d be a lot easier if the actual paper was a little closer to my body. But then, if it was closer to my body, you guys wouldn’t actually see it on camera, not that I’m the best at putting things in the frame. Clearly, if you guys have been reading my blog for a while, sometimes I forget to do that and I’m like.

Oh great, the last 20 minutes have been out of the frame: sweet, good, youtuber, Emily all right, so that washi is down like grab my Christian designs, binder here, alright and I’m going to pull these, which are one of my favorite stickers. These are the K ad zero, two nine six four, they are like the little movie placard ones. I use these from my articles, so, let’s put in what I put up this week, alright needed to go into a second sheet here, because I am done with a full sheet.

If y’all been reading my blog for a while, you know that it makes me so excited to finish up a whole sheet of stickers, it kind of like. I know some people don’t like it, but for me it’s like really really validating that. You know I spent my money on this and it is now realized that I actually needed all of these. You know I don’t know, maybe I’m weird like that, but it makes me happy alright and then Friday I put up my October budget.

Alright, alright, I can never really remember the times that I was at work just because I’ve been staying a lot later most days, especially this week. This was the last week I had with my coworker that was training me, so I’m pretty sure I stayed a little bit later than normal, but that’s alright I’ll just kind of put in some time and go from there. So I put in my time alright – and let me dig into some of my coffee break planner stickers.

Let’s see, maybe yellow, could be a good one. I’m trying to figure out like what colors to do know. It may be pink as well. I don’t know I’m just kind of working it out today. Alright, let’s do let’s do a yellow today, that’s kind of a fun one, alright, so, let’s put in the work situation. This is like all coffee break planner stuff today. So, Oh five of these stickers ooh next week, I’m going to get all satisfied all right and then these are from Catherine’s shop as well.

These cute little desk things I’m trying to make my office space at work kind of cute. I will have a article coming up, hopefully very soon, about some of the things that I purchased for my new office at work, so I’ve got lots of really cute things. Just you know kind of make it your own you’re there all the time. So why the heck not right so anyways um yeah, that article should be coming up fairly soon.

I believe this is going to be uploaded first, though I’m not a how-to percent sure, but I’m pretty sure, but unfortunately I am not really able to take photos of my cubicle at work for security reasons, so I won’t be able to share my actual cube with You guys, but I will be able to share like some of the products and stuff that I am going to bring to my office so anyways I will hopefully have that up in the future for y’all I’m going to put in some meal things.

So, let’s see here I’ll put in Panera oops come on. Oh my gosh, this one’s like not cooperating properly. Oh there, it goes it just did not want to be friendly today, okay, Panera right here. What else did I do? I usually have like a ton of stuff at the bottom over here. Okay, I’m going to leave this one out because I’m not really sure where I’m going to put this one for like Friday night, I did a whole lot of eating out this week.

I feel like I’m kind of all over the board today, but that’s all right, we’ll get this figured out. Let’s go and order cuz this it’s like stressing me out so um. Actually, during the day, I did a email that I had to take care of. I kind of did that during like lunchy time ish, something like that. That’s just like a little follow up situation, yeah and then, after that, I ran to the peel box. Alright, typically do that on my way home, because it’s on my way home my public mailbox, which isn’t really a P o box, but my public mailbox is not really near where I live, but it’s the closest I can get so we go for it.

Alright Q box is done. Alright. I also got Amazon delivery day, which was exciting, so I did a face mask which I’m trying to get better at, but a lot of you guys have way way busier lives than I do, but for some reason it’s just one of those things in life where I’m like I just don’t have time. I clearly have time. I just don’t make the time. I think that’s part of my issue with a lot of things in life.

I think that’s a lot of our issues. To be honest, so so, let’s see Tuesday they sent my brother document. So let’s put that in edited and then this is, I don’t read a ton of television, but I do read that show here we go. This is what I want. Let’s see here there is that you know I try to put things away as I go when I’m doing this, it’s like all off camera, but I don’t. I should really get better at that.

Okay, I did the post office, which was good. I also filled orders on Wednesday as well the post office. I did the very tail end of the day. All right, I had to create an invoice that done all right and package orders. These are all the fun things I did that day. Oh, except I did move some inventory into my new office, which I’m going to be sharing to you guys. Hopefully so nish um haven’t fully completed my new office yet, but it is coming up, hopefully very soon so yeah, I’m I’m really really excited about it.

All right, I got these cute little like washi rolls all right, so I’m Thursday we did a little happy hour thing for a co-worker. That was fun. I didn’t stay very long, but it was still fun. Nonetheless, you use one of these at all guys all right. I had a meeting all right, so that is that okay Wow come on. I’ve got like way too many things going on at the moment. Well, I just searched my sticker arsenal for quite a while looking for a particular kind of sticker, and I don’t have it so we’re just going to go with this.

I was lucky enough to be a guest on the planner lifestyle podcast and I’m looking for like a podcast occur or something like headphones or something. I don’t have anything in any of the samplers that I have, but I listen to all my podcasts on my phone. So we’re going to go with this, this is going to be my little icon situation, so yeah so planner lifestyle podcast was released on Friday, a September 28th, and this was going to this was part one.

There are two parts actually they’re both up right now. So I will link them down below if y’all are interested in checking them out, but yeah, so it was really fun all right and so the rest of the evening I had ended up going to the Justin Timberlake concert, which is kind of nuts. I was not expecting to go, but my friend over at life’s organized chaos head texted me in the middle of the day and was like hey.

I know this is like a real long shot, but would you be interested in going to Justin Timberlake with me tonight and I’m like well yeah kind of like you know, so we chatted about it. A little bit turns out. One of the gals that was supposed to go couldn’t go anymore, cuz of an illness so anyways. It ended up working out pretty slick, if I don’t say so myself, so I need all the stickers alright. So first thing I did was we went to Kirby’s, which is a restaurant really close to the Excel? Was it the Excel yeah the Xcel Energy Center? So we went there? Oh my gosh.

I cannot get the sticker off and met up with Jody, and then we went to the concert, which was like an all-night situation. I did leave a little bit early. I like to leave a little early, because I had this really fun thing called anxiety in crowd. So I don’t like to stay there too late. So I skipped just the last couple of songs and it ended up being just fine with me, so anyways, but Jody had other people there with her too.

So I wasn’t like the only one or anything, but anyway I had a great time and it was really really fun so anyway, yes, Justin Timberlake. That was really good times change my air filter and I did that on Saturday, clearly winning it life change. The air filter ooh – I didn’t finish my desk, put on. Let me pull this out cuz, it’s just there all right, I’m going to used I’m trying to like use up stickers.

It’s like the main goal in life today. Alright, so my desk took quite a long time set up office. Yes, the desk situation took a long time to do, but that’s alright. Here we go it’s a cute little thing there and also I had the chair to do which the chair, I said, a lot of four-letter words. While I was putting that chair together. I’ll just put it that way, but um there was nothing actually like wrong with the chair once it was together, but the holes were not drilled properly, unfortunately, so that was kind of a pain in the butt and then for the rest of the day.

I really just was in the office um and then on Sunday. I did all the article edits, so I edited basically all day yeah, let’s be real. I didn’t start really editing until like then, and to be honest, I don’t know what else I did that day. It says air filter here, but I know I did it on Saturday, but I don’t know these are all the things I edited. Maybe I’ll write it in make it look more exciting than it really was okay, so that is it for this week.

I hope you guys enjoyed the article if you did make sure to give it a thumbs up.

Pen Test | 2020/2021 Erin Condren Life Planner #ECSquad

If you want to see a little bit more in depth of this planner duo, I got the daily duo to review a little early. I will link a card up in the corner for you guys, but I am going to bust into one of these and we’re going to do a little pen test for you guys. I have a ton of pens here and just wanted to I already kind of already kind of started doing things, so I’m going to use yeah I’m going to use this side of the paper, because, on the very back of these daily duo’s, usually there’s a bunch Of notes pages, if you have like a regular life planner, not the duo, but this one only has the two pages and the one I would do it on won’t show any shadowing, because it’s got like the Erin Condren information page at the back.

So this wouldn’t be very helpful, so I’m going to show it to you on this page, because I don’t mind if this page gets a little shadowing doesn’t bother me at all. So I’m going to use these blue pens, which I actually have a little box of blue and a box of black pens. I think I’ve got these little boxes at Michaels. You know like at the checkout in Michaels, there’s kind of like that little area where it’s like a couple: bucks or a dollar or whatever for certain things.

This was only a dollar, but I got two of them because I wanted to have a black and blue pen test. I feel like both of them would be redundant because I’m using the same thing that’s over and over and then at the end, I’m going to share with you guys these pens, which I here I’ll show you right now, but I’ll do it at the end. This is the box and I put washi tape in the Bott of it that this pen comes in, which will also be available on launch day, and it had like all this foam in there and I just ripped out the foam, because I wanted a place to Store these, which these are like a little click pens or pens and markers that have like the barrels so anyways.

I wanted a place to put them where they wouldn’t be like tossed all over the damn place. So this was my solution tada, so they fit in here pretty perfect. Alright! So there’s that so, let’s get into the pen test something on okay, I’m going to have to organize this a little bit. So it’s like markers and actual pens kind of so I kind of have it organized a little bit, but let’s zoom, mullion and yeah.

So for my regular pens that I have clearly a pencil is going to work just fabulously for you, but I wanted to show you guys some different pens. So I’m going to start out with my favorite actual pen like a gel pen, and this is the paper made ink joy, gel pen and the o7. I don’t know what it is about. This color is like a navy color, it’s not the blue one of my faves. This is the blue Pilot g2 in the 10.

So it’s like a thicker point. I, like a thicker point, anything like an O, 5 or less. I just am NOT into I like an O 7 or larger. That’s just my personal preference and pilot g2s were my favorite until I found the paper may enjoy gels, and I’m like okay, I, like those ones better. This is the jelly roll o 6 and also in a Navy. You can tell these pens have not been used in a while. I like legit, just keep them in that little clear container for these.

My other ones that I use on a daily, which I do use a lot of these daily, are other places. Okay, and this is the Erin Condren Navy. I don’t know what the point is on this and I don’t even know if they still have them, but some of you might still have these um in your arsenal and, I believe, they’re a gel pen. But let’s let’s see here yeah, that’s very, very pointy, not my fav, but um. You know it’s good to test them all, and then these are the pilot, precise rolling ball v 5 and they’re the extra fine.

I have a regular blue and then also a navy. So, let’s um, let’s try these out. I don’t. I think these are new word to my collection. I think I had a like gift pack like a pack of a bunch of these, so I don’t know: let’s try it yeah, not my favorite again, not as what as a pointy as the erin condren one but yeah, you know and I’ve. Never. I don’t think I’ve ever written with these before yeah to to uh mm.

I don’t know scratchy scratchy for me and then okay, we’re going to go with the erin condren sapphire a pen. These are the dual tip markers another, a cult classic and some of my favorites um. I am a fan of the medium tip, so we’ll go into that in just a moment: here’s the fine point side and then we’ll go to the medium, which is my fav. No just works well for me. I don’t know I like it. I like it better and then another favorite is the Paper Mate, and this is the peppermint flare.

I don’t know, I just love the flare they’re. Just nice they’re easy. They kind of go with most things unless you need a permanent marker which these most of these worked really well on glossy or difficult to write on stickers that have a little bit of a film, so these are kind of my more permanent style. Yes, so let’s get into this, this is the micron. Oh three, it’s the pigma micron. I can tell you right now.

I absolutely hate writing with these, but I know a lot of people. Absolutely love them again. It’s too Scratchy for me, whoops man down hold on, and I know I’ve gotten comments in these articles before like. Why do you keep all these if you hate them for this for this? This is why I keep them, because everyone has something different that they like, and then I want to show you if it’s shadows or if the shadowing would bother you – and these are all things I’ve either picked up over the years – that I know don’t work for Me or that have been gifted to me or put in some swag bag, and I just keep them because I know someone out there has them and they’d probably be interesting to see how paper holds up, not just erin condren paper, but other paper and stuff too.

So anywhere, so, let’s write this one down all right, pigma micron and then we’ve got that’s. Oh there’s two of these. I don’t. I don’t even test two of them. This is the lip pen and I actually really like the way that this, like the stroke of it like works, really well, but it’s still again. The point is to for me to it. I don’t know how to say it all right. Nice yeah – and this is the Stabenow – do the look.

I don’t know how to say it. I don’t say anything and then we’ve got this one, which I absolutely love. It’s the marks a lot permanent and these are in the ultrafine tip. I did some research online and this one you can only get in like a rainbow pack. They don’t have these yet and I hope they do at some point so Avery. If you’re reading, which I know they’re not you need to make pacts with just black and you need to pick make pacts with just blue trust me because I would buy them, but right now, you can only get them in a rainbow pack.

So these are the Avery marks a lot so good, so good y’all and it almost rivals this bad boy, which is my favorite fav, which is the pilot ultrafine point permanent type marker, I’m just going to put pilot ultrafine because you don’t need the rest of it. My favorite, that’s my favorite one, to write like for sure this one’s actually pretty good as well. This is the Sharpie permanent marker in the ultrafine a point, and this is actually navy.

I actually had to buy from a seller on Amazon, like a box of these and my god they’re. So good they’re not like this, like the lepen or the Avery, like that’s a very royal blue, where this is like a navy which I very much prefer like you, can see the difference. And then this is just a regular sharpie marker. Just a sharpie fine point like the ones you get like big boxes of at the office supply store, I’m just going to write, sharpie yeah and see the color between the two.

Much prefer the Navy fo sho. Okay. So that’s that, let’s look at the other side, and let me do this. Let me zoom you all in a little bit, so you can see the shadowing because I know that’s a big deal PS turning 40 on january. 9Th in case you want to, you know, send me some love, but what is the way but anyways, but yeah. You really can’t see too much shadowing too bad. Nothing would really bother me until these ones, like the Avery marks a lot and down so like the Avery marks a lot.

Let’s go like this, like the Avery marks a lot, the pirate pirate, the pilot ultra fine point, the Sharpie ultra fine and then our sharpie sharpie. Those would really bother me, but, to be honest, I personally write a lot with stickers. Like I put a sticker down and then I write with it, so really I don’t have a lot of this, but if you are concerned about shadowing, I wouldn’t do a permanent marker on this type of paper, and this is, I think I said this already, but It’s an 80-pound Mohawk paper and they’ve been using the same paper in their planners, for is this their third or fourth year.

I think it’s their third year doing this paper and it’s not a glassy feeling. You know paper is really glassy feeling it does have a little bit of a grip to it, which I think is great for people that want to use stickers or whatever it just. It doesn’t fly out of your hands, which I think is nice, but I really like the quality. That’s very. I don’t know it’s thick, but it’s not too thick. It’s not like cardstock thick, but it’s it’s good, but it’s like an 80 pound paper anyway.

So yeah here we go: oh, let’s zoom back out cuz. This is the weird and then why don’t we use some of these because I haven’t to be honest. I haven’t used check them out. There’s some highlighters, which I want to put all the like ones. Together. Cuz, you know neuroses and whatnot, alright, so with the highlighters, I’m just going to write highlighter right here, cuz. That seems like the easiest, and then this is like a ballpoint pen, just like a regular pen like a little twisty pen from Erin Condren, and you get this and the box.

But in the Box you get that um foam thing I was talking about that. I ripped out because I don’t like it so yeah you can tell I have never written with this, because it’s skipping and probably get the ball rolling on it. Quick. You know, like oh yeah kind of, have to do that to warm up the pens. Sometimes, let’s try this one well, what the heck! Maybe it’s just my pen, I don’t know, leaving a failure.

Okay and there’s like nothing behind it. So weird, okay! So it’s such a fail! You guys! Okay, let me try it down here. I just I don’t know. Okay, what is going on? Okay, it’s working fine on like this paper, but not on the Erin Condren paper, I’m so confused! Okay! Now it’s not even like what what the heck! Why is it working on here, but not oh, my gosh! You guys! Okay! Well! This is a fail. I I don’t know I don’t know what’s going on, but whatever let me just show you the highlighter.

All I wanted to do is just like go Knight Cadiz and go oh look at the fine line. It’s good uh, anyways! Okay! These are just the highlighter colors yikes, you know, sometimes it’s probably user error, because I am kind of the worst when it comes to certain things. But anyway, I didn’t use the little doodad over here, but that’s okay, alright, so the fine tips, there’s three fine tips and then the rest are medium tips.

So let’s do the medium tips. These feel exactly the same as the dual tip, medium for sure yeah. I really I like the medium. Like I said before I love the medium, I’m I’m not a fine tip girl at all. I, like a medium. The highlighters actually felt really nice as well so yeah. Let’s do some more medium yeah that one that one’s my jam yeah, I’m not sure of the colors the colors – will be listed on the website when everything is alive for you guys, I just don’t have the information right in front of me because you know I Just don’t: oh, I like this color.

This kind of I don’t know like sorbet kind of a color okay, so that is that and then they all come with this like barrel and there’s two barrels in the box that will be available on launch day. So there is that and then we have the fine tips so again, not a fine tip girl. That’s okay! That’s okay! I mean they write nice. It’s just you know not my preference and I have three fine tips. So look at this blue one down alright.

So, anyway, that’s the pen test. Let’s look at the back side of this, so you guys can see on let’s zoom y’all in just a little bit here: okay, okay, let’s go beyond where it says sharpie these are going to be. You know where every where all the colorful ones are, and I don’t really see too much in the shadowing. To be honest, I mean, when you lift it up, you can see it just slightly, but if you have a piece of paper behind it, you really don’t really don’t see it.

I see the most shadowing right here, which is when I tried to use this thing and I was like going yeah yeah like I couldn’t, couldn’t stop because the pen wouldn’t go for me so anyway, but that’s what it looks so, like close up, I really like The highlighters and I like the mediums a lot fines, not my jam, but I feel like if you like, a fine tip you’re going to like those markers and then with the versatility of the barrel kind of nice to just swap these in and out once in A while, alright, so that’s going to be the pen test for the new planners, which are the 2021 through 2022 Erin Condren life liners.
