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.

So I’m curious to know what are your home goals for next year? Do you have any specific rooms that you want to tackle or design choices, or maybe some painting or to get some new furniture?

So much for reading, I hope y’all are having a great day, and I will see you in the next one bye guys well folks, it’s time to kick it old school

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

2019/2020 Deluxe Monthly Planner | Erin Condren

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Well, that is going to be it for all of the new information for the deluxe monthly planner for 2019 to the 2020. If you all have any questions feel free to put them in the comments down below and remember these go on their website on June 4th. There are links below, for you guys so feel free to check that out and if you liked the article make sure to give it a thumbs up feel free to subscribe, and I will see y’all in the next article bye guys well folks, it’s time to kick It old school

I cannot talk today and then dot up your days with date. Dot stickers, very cool and then oh here’s a bunch of mini months from July 2019 through December 2020, so very, very cool.

This is the pack of stickers that it comes with we’re going to get into this in just a little bit, because I believe that this goes with this, so I believe that you can. You should be able to personalize this. I asked for it with no personalization, because clearly I don’t have a kid, but I will be gifting this to someone in my life. This is a really cool one that just has some planets and has some silver foiling, and it says my dreams are out of this world very cool before we move on.

Let’s look at this next to a regular, Erin, Condren life planner. I have my new one sitting right over here. The size is the same, but I want to show you guys the coil difference so clearly, there is quite a bit of difference in the coil, not as many pages, but still the same 7 by 9 size. So yeah, alright! So let’s open this up, I have an open day yet guys. Alright, let’s get you in the frame alright, so it’s just a regular cover that has the same like a little dashboard right here.

So, even if you started in like July, you can use this page first and then this page, you know like later very cool ooh, an allowance tracker, very, very nice. If you guys don’t do allowance at your house, you could always just tape these two pages. Together. You know what what are you talking about, what I’m saving for what I want to spend, what I want to save and what I want to share with others books.

I want to read nice, okay and then the very front. This is like a drawing page and in the very front of the first month it says be kind, and I am kind two and then three different blank boxes and then we’ve got it. Oh, create your own cover design, your own planner cover in this space. Above all, right, I think this is where these kind of come in, so let’s open up this sticker pack get with it. I know I’m going to get questions as of right now I don’t know what the price is on this so, like I said when this article goes up, it will be live on the Erin.

Condren websites just go click on it and then all the pricing will be there. I’m sorry, I don’t know the price just yet. So this is the one for January. So, like you could put all of these in here or whatever, and this I don’t want to do this because I feel like whoever I give it to they might want to start it in a different month so anyway, but this little January, like fits perfectly over Here on this tab, okay and then this month it says morning routine evening, your own teen and then, if you have any birthdays this month and then it says, place monthly sticker here.

So you put your January right here and then you put in all your date. Dots wherever they go and then you’ll have like today is New Year’s Day. Today is Martin Luther King Day and then today is today is and it’s blank some happy birthdays and some blank ones, and then it has like important and then a bunch of decorative stickers right there and then over on this side. It has monthly goals, and then it says this month I saw I enjoyed something fun I did was and then make your own comic draw a story in the panels below right, what’s being said or big loud sounds, and the speech bubbles, that’s really cute alright and Then now we’re into the next month, so you get these for every single month and clearly you don’t have to go in.

If you like it and then in December, we’ve got more holiday, gifting things and then it says winter begins and Year’s Eve. This is so cute. I like that. It’s guided. I really like that. It’s guided because I think, as a kid I mean even as an adult. Sometimes you look at these planners and you’re like I don’t know what I’m going to do with this.

I really like that. It’s guided okay, let’s keep going because I think they’re a little bit different each month. So I want you guys to see everything and then be able to like make your own decision so things on my mind, you can draw a little something. That’s in your mind, and then still this page is still the same. Let’s see, I believe it is yeah, so the routines and the birthdays, and then this page is the same and then let me look okay, so this page at the very end of the month is the same.

I saw I enjoyed and fun things I did was so that’s kind of like a nice recap of the month and then on the next page, just something a little bit different. So it’s got like a little word find and then we are into this ooh create your own shoes. Oh wow. I need some new shoes, Oh create my own shoes, and then this is the third months and then in here. Oh, if I were a superhero, hmm, that’s pretty neat and then we’ve got more of these things and then what kind of planet you want to live on? Another planet, one cool, color, the shapes below to create the solar system.

Nice! Oh! This is very satisfying this little box. That says I did it, that’s exciting, alright and then I am and then finish the crow write. A word on the grid above to finish the same. Oh very neat and then we’ve got a secret message, very cool and then let’s see what got next ooh decorate your cake. Very hmm. This is fun. Oh, it says what is that put on your thinking, cap and finish the picture below.

Well, there can be so many things you never know all right into the next month. You class time fill in the speech bubble with what your favorite things are to do in school, very, very fun. I really liked art in school. That was probably my favorite thing to do, is creative stuff and then there’s a little maze with a treasure. At the end, very neat, all right ooh, my funny face – I can make a few of those, oh goodness, and that says, would you rather ooh? Would you rather have tentacles for arms or four legs? I don’t know, would you rather be invisible or walk through walls? I’d rather be invisible, would you rather travel by spaceship or by dinosaur? I don’t know they both sound, very interesting right and then we’ve got the next one who trace your hand, oh my hand fits in there.

I could trace my hand and then give this to someone that’d be weird. Oh goodness, and then let’s see another word find very cool. Oh, it has all the words down here. Let’s see ooh, let’s go team, ooh sports or whatever I create a banner for the team that you love to root for and then animal alphabet try to write as many animal names. You can think. That’s start with the letter, A through Z. Oh, that’s kind of neat alright and then some fun in the Sun drop.

What you like to do when you were outside and then tell a story: cool, Oh a tic-tac-toe. Yes, I love a good tic-tac-toe game, oh and then a coloring time. It’s like little toucan thing well, jungle, scene, and then that is it there’s nothing else in the back. There’s no stickers, but I mean you get a plethora of stickers right here, so I think you’re good on the sticker situation, but yeah that is it there’s also a couple of other things that they had sent over in the PR kit.

I’m not sure if this is a bundle on the website or not, but these would be some great add-ons for the kids sticker or the kids sticker. I’m sorry, the kids planner, clearly Erin Condren tooltip’ Marcos be fabulous for a lot of that coloring in and then we’ve got these, which are those puffy stickers. I’m not going to take these out because it’s just the one sheet, but this one has three sticker sheets and I don’t know if they’re all the same.

Let’s take a look see: oh they’re, all different, okay cool. So these are all foiled. So this is like an orange foil like it’s, not gold, it’s like orange. This one is like a purple foil, and then we have these more turquoise foils, which is really cool, and I also like that this is not super gender II. If that makes sense, I don’t even know, if that’s a word but it’d feel like if you have a boy or girl that they could really like this, no matter what the gender of the child I mean, I know that the majority of decorative planners out there Are women? Yes, but you know there are men.

I have a man friend that is a planner ryan from a man with the plans I’ll stick his blog up in a card for you guys. If you want to read him, but you know, I think this is just a really nice creative outlet, especially if you have a parent that plans. Your kids really want to plan too. It’s just something that they can have for their own and they can draw on it and they can, you know, mess it all up or they can make it all pretty or whatever they want to do.

I just think: that’s really nice. So I really like that. This is not specifically female-driven that it’s really it could be for any kid okay, so that is it for me. Thank you guys so much for reading my article about the new Erin Condren, kids planner. I think this is a great idea for lots of kids that might like this kind of thing, so you know your own children, I’m sure you’ll know if they’re going to you know be into this or not also makes a really fun gift as well, which is What I’m going to be doing with this, but if you have any questions, feel free to post them down below, and what do you guys think about the kids planner? Do you think your kids would be into it? Is this something that you think would be a great idea for kids? Let me know down in the comments below so anyway.

That’s going to be it for me. Thank you guys so much for reading, if you, like, the article, make sure to give it a thumbs up and feel free to subscribe, and I will see y’all in the next article bye guys well folks, it’s time to kick it old school

Sticker Collection | Coffee Break Planner

This is the binder whoa. Sorry about that. This is a binder I have been using for quite a while. It is a very thick binder that I got on Amazon. I think it’s an Avery binder. I will link it down below if y’all are interested but anyways. I did a article not too long ago, showing my sticker organization as to how I put this together.

I will link that article up in a cart if y’all are interested but anyways. I have my little coffee break planner thing that I made over here and yeah. So, let’s just like get right into it. I do have these categorized by like category obviously a categorized by category way to go Emily way to use the word. I’m just a wordsmith today, but I have lots of different things to share. The first category is my event: category, which is my favorite category, because it’s got my favorite stickers in there so yeah.

So, let’s just kind of like flip through it and then we’ll just go from there. She’s got lots of really great scalloped box stickers, which are one of my favorite things. I’ve got a lot of duplicates just FYI and then I’ve got some things as well. So I know that some of her stickers are formatted for specific planners, and then some of them are just like the way that they are so sometimes when you go onto her Etsy shop.

It’ll, like give a little drop-down and say, like you, know, ask what planner ur like what orientation of a planner that you’re using and all that good stuff, so yeah. But I just like love her stuff, it’s so nice. It sounds like holographic, it’s really cool yeah and then this one, this one’s silver. So these are like assam. My favourite stickers are these little scalloped ones and she just released new colors.

I did flip through a couple of the new colors, but there’s some new ones for fall so feel free to go check that out. If you interested, but yes, it’s my first category just because it makes the most sense and then I’ve got half boxes right here. Oh, I only have two left on this one. I want to use this one up, so I’ve got some half boxes. I got some like military-inspired ones and then I’ve got a bunch of other ones which these are really nice as well, more military but yeah.

I just you know I just love her stuff, so much and this type of sticker is just like, so my jam like it’s just ah, you know I love a good. I love a good half box, a good functional anything, and I like that. Some of these have like a little bit of something to them without being like overly, you know, aggressive or whatever. These are my full boxes, but I only have one sheet of full boxes, so the full boxes is kind of, like my catch-all for other weird things.

They’re, not weird they’re, just different, you know, and I don’t have a place for them so when Katherine sends out orders, at least in my orders. She’s always put in these really cute little samplers, which is kind of Awesome, and then also I have a bunch of transparent dots, so I’ve got them in some of the colors. So this is the green and then I also have like some of the rainbow ones. I have some of the red ones and more of the rainbows as well, but I absolutely love the transparent dots, oh and I should say well now: okay, let’s get into the flag story all over the paper that she uses is matte, which I love a good Matte paper, so here’s all the flags that I’m showing today um.

But I love the matte paper. I don’t know what it is, but it’s like something about the way that the pen or the marker or whatever you’re, using like kind of soaks into the paper, and I know it’s like satisfying to me – it’s like very satisfying. Actually, what is going to say is that she uses matte removable paper. So if you mess up – and you like – lay it down on your planner – it’s okay, because you can easily like lift it up, which is kind of Awesome.

So, anyway, here’s all her scripted words that I have she’s got several more scripted words that, like don’t pertain to me in my life, so I don’t order those ones, but I’ve gone through several of these. Like look, I’m almost done with these work ones. I’ve used a bunch on this sheet too, like I forget what I have sometimes it’s just kind of the nature of the beast: with look having a youtube blog that does planning now you kind of forget what you have, and I didn’t have these like really nicely Organized for a long long time, so it took me quite a while to figure out a system that you know worked for me.

But since I did this, I’ve just been like loving the way that it all looks. And then I’ve got my work stickers, which is pretty awesome. I’ve got lots of fun things in here, so I’ve got some desks more desks. There’s lots of like versions of desks cute little calculators, we’ve gotten like a couple of those which is awesome and it’s getting like really really cold in Minnesota now. So this is kind of how I feel right now as like a little snowman, even though it’s not snowing yet.

I shouldn’t have said that s word now: it’s going to start snowing, darn, it okay and then yeah. I got lots of different, really fun ones. This reminds me I need to start. My office is almost actually redone, you guys it’s it’s like really getting there, but I need to do a file organization on all my files, but I’m going to do a article about it too, because I know you guys have been asking for that.

I just haven’t. Had like a good opportunity to do it and I actually bought a file cabinet from Ikea. So I’m very very excited about that to share like how I’m going to be organizing it and it’s like three full drawers of emptiness right now, but that’s very exciting. For me to get organized and I haven’t gone through stuff in like a really long time, so I know you guys think I’m super organized, but sometimes the fge is not as organized as you think she is so.

I think we’re all like that. But anyway, these are one of my new favorite stickers too. They just came out or she just came out with these not too long ago. Maybe a couple months back and it’s like a little shelf that has planners and then it has like a little pen cup that says CBP on it, which is really cute for coffee break planner, and I think this is so nice. If you want to like indicate like planning time or like a meet-up or something just really really stinking cute, so that’s my work category here is my home category.

So, basically, anything that has to do with the house so laundry, which I have to do laundry I’m going to do laundry tomorrow, um. I also have these like road trip. Looking ones. I’ve got some trash cans and musical notes. More laundry. I’ve got some like shopping bags. These are like little baby laundry’s like look at these, oh they’re, so cute right, that’s really cute. Yes, she’s got a couple different sizes of things so and then I also have these really cute makeup brush like cleaning things and then more trash things, some gifts more trash.

I love a good trash guys. I’d love a good trash. I also have some beds for like when you want to like change your sheets or like redo your bedding or whatever. These home stickers are like one of my favorite things, they’re so flippin and cute, and then these are awesome as well. These cute little shelves and then the really fun thing is. You can put something like inside of the picture frame if you want, if you want to like draw a little something which is really really cute, and she put in some of these, so you can see like it’s like doyle, like my dogs like silhouette, and then She put my logo and the other ones which are super stinkin cute, Oh see, I used a bunch of the house once already and these are the clean me little brushes again and then also some trash ones ooh in the plant stickers, oh and then I also Have these really cute little books, if you guys have been following me for a while, I have some like really amazing news.

So if you guys read my blog, this will make a lot more sense, so my mom actually just left today, like the day, I’m filming this. She just left to go back to Florida, but every year, like my mom and dad’s summer in Minnesota, and then they have their full-time residents in Florida, but this year she got rid of the damn plant, I’m so excited. I do not know how to take care of the plan. It’s so exciting to me.

Oh I’m excited so I probably won’t be using those plant things anytime soon, but I just wanted to let you know I had them still all right. So this is my food category. These are one of my favorite things, these little like market boxes like oh they’re, so cute, and then I’ve got some like little paper bags for like bringing lunch to work and stuff. I’ve also got these cute little cutlery wands. Oh, I’ve got more of these guys more cutlery.

More of these kind see I they’re my favorite there’s really cute little food trucks, which I wish I lived or like worked really close to a place. I had food trucks because I think food trucks are kind of awesome, so but yeah, and then these cute little crock pots, which are kind of fun. I don’t do like a ton of crock pot things I feel like I should. I need to like go on. Pinterest or something, and then I’ve got these cute little like coffee guys, which sometimes I like go to a coffee place or something to like, hang out with a friend or just like, go there, while my like oils being changed in my car or something I mean, I don’t drink coffee cuz, I can’t handle it, but you know I’ll get like a smoothie or like a tea or something or just have something else, and then these are really cute little mugs that have like a little colorful insides.

You know if you want to denote anything like that. Alright and then my next category is animals, so we’ve got like little paw prints for like your little kitty or your puppy or whoever these are really cute. They are like little stethoscopes and inside, like the little turn of the stethoscope, is a little paw print as well, and then I have these really random cows, and I think I ordered them for something that I like can’t remember for the life of me.

What I ordered them for so they’re, just in the air, I cannot recall um, but she’s got a lot of really fun stuff on her website. I love them. I think they’re great, but I’m like what did I? What was I going to use that for, and I think I forgot – I don’t know – uh previous Emily – I don’t know what was going on with her here. Is my sports categories or like athletics categories, so I’ve got a bunch of tennis shoes.

I also have a bunch of little like itty-bitty footballs, and then here I have some of their racetrack stuff, which is like more NASCAR inspired. I am into NASCAR. I haven’t readed it in a really long time because my favorite dry driver Dale jr., he retired this past year, so I haven’t really been like catching up with it. This year is like, I think, he retired at the end of 2016 – oh no, sorry, 2017, and so this year I just haven’t been into it, but I feel like I need to read it more, but anyway more footballs and then I also have.

I think I have a full collection, yeah of the race stickers and then more footballs, and you probably wondering why do you have so many footballs? And I think I was going to do something in my planner and then I forget, I don’t know I forget a lot of things, your guy, but now I have them. So if something comes up where I’m at a sporting event, I can put them in all right and then the next category is health.

So I have these little really cute little like pads that have like a little heart in them to like track your cycle, and then these are just kind of similar to the dog ones or the cat ones like the little vet ones. So you have like a little stethoscope, but then this has like the little cross in it, so I’ve actually gone through a couple of sheets of these, and I have oh, I have. I have several of them: okay, cool, but I have gone through a few sheets of these, so yeah, but I love those they’re nice I mean if you’re sick, it sucks being sick anyway is a, but it is nice when you can actually put something.

That’s really cute in your planner oops, alright and then these are the seasonal ones that I have of hers. So it’s like seasons and other like random things in here. So I have a bunch of these like carnival ones which to me is seasonal, because it just reminds me of a State Fair. I also have these little trees, which are super cute. You could use them really for anything, but I just thought that they would be good in the seasonal.

Also, these s’mores and campfires to me is seasonal. I don’t, but it just it just works with me. Also, these little banners kind of remind me of birthday banners. So that’s why it’s in the seasonal and then the little school bus is also a seasonal to me, because that’s how my brain works and yeah. So, let’s put those to the side. I’ve got these really cute little full boxes that are, you know, kind of more fall themed.

These are more summery themed with like little sailboats and things like that, and then these I think she came out with last year yeah. I think these two she came out with last year, which are really cute. I still haven’t used them. I just haven’t found like a good spread to use them in, but they’re like these little vintage houses and like they’re kind of like little washy strips, which is really cute, and then I also have these really cute little date covers and st.

Patrick’s boxes holiday boxes. This is like a new holiday set that she has for this year. I don’t know, maybe it’s new to me, but I love the muted colors. I think it’s so pretty, but yeah be like perfect, for you know if you want to like decorate or or like when you’re decorating, to be like Oh decorate, the house – or I don’t know whatever – and this is like totally me – baby, it’s cold outside yep.

That’s kind of how Minnesota is and then oh here’s another little collection that she has for this. I don’t know if it’s this year that she came up with this or maybe it’s left over from last year. I don’t know, but it’s really cute, but it’s like so me. I like love this little one that says Happy Holidays right there, that’s, like kind of my aesthetic and my jam’ are like these colors. So that was really nice and then I love these ones and this so stinkin cute and then also she’s got this other one in the bigger one that just as Happy Holidays with the tree, which I think is really nice.

I mean I like all of them, but you know if you want to be a little bit more neutral. That is, you know of a way to do it. Alright, so those are put back so yeah. I have seasonal health, sports, animal food, poem, work, script, words, flags, full boxes, and then I have my like miscellaneous in there. My half boxes and event stick.

Plan With Me | Alaska Back Planning | #ECLifePlanner

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

2019/2020 The Focused Planner | Erin Condren

I was sent this item to take a peek at and share with you guys if I liked it so yeah. So thank you to the Erin Condren team for sending this my way. So the particular focused planner that I have there’s two separate options. This one is $ 39. You can personalize it.

I believe that there is a charge for that. Possibly you can always do. I think it’s down here, if I remember right, but there’s oil options and there’s also like the blind imprint, which is like reverse and brass embossing kind of so anyways. I chose not to personalize all so you can choose your calendar options, they’re all 12-month options, and you can start it like July to June or like all the way to just like January to December.

If that makes sense, so I got mine for a January through December. This book size is a 5 by 8, there’s also a 7 by 9 and then the 7 by 9. The larger one is $ 44. So let me show you what the 5 by 8 looks like next to a life planner. This is my current life planner that I am still working in until July. It might be July by the time you see this, I’m not sure but yeah. So this is the size different for you guys it’s like all the way up there, and then this one has a like luxe cover where this I got.

Ta looks cover this past year and I really love it so yeah, it’s like the same. You know nice hard board basically, but it’s very like it’s like a leather like feeling on there and it comes with a black coil. I’ve actually never had a black coil before I don’t think I don’t think I’ve ever had a black coil anyways but yeah. This is the black coil. Clearly it is so much smaller than the life planner one, but that’s because there’s less pages so, let’s open her up – and I should say also it only comes with the black cover – doesn’t have any options with that.

So, let’s open her up, donc done! Oh so pretty still has the woven wonder on the other side – and this is the focused planner from Erin Condren and I’ve actually never seen one of these in person before by the way so like bear with me. I’ve readed other people’s articles, but I’ve never actually like had one in my hands before this is kind of exciting. Alright. So then we have 2019 2020 holidays, which is great because you know you can start your planner anytime, but it is still a 12 month planner and then we’ve got important dates to remember and then all the months and then some notes pages and then there’s like These little oh cool, there’s like little cutouts and then here is your month at a glance which is great and then there’s a little next month over here, which I am loving, that they did that in the new Erin Condren life planners as well.

If you’re interested in that I’ll put a link somewhere for you, so this is January, and then this reminds me of like one of my dad’s planners that he had, but it was like way smaller. It’s a teeny, tiny, but it had these little like lifti tabs. That were just like that, so that’s kind of cool anyway, so this is kind of like where you can put, I don’t know it looks like maybe like notes or something for the month, so on this side, there’s some little circles, which basically are I don’t know To me, they look like checkboxes, but it seems like it’d, be really easy to make this really whatever you want cuz, it’s kind of pretty simplified over here.

It just says, notes and then aligned page and then same over here. Oh, are these undated? What I’m confused? Oh okay, so like there’s, no, like weekly pages hold on okay. So sorry, I’ve never seen these before alright. So I guess that this, maybe it would be your weekly page but it’d be like a Monday through Friday or like whatever five days. You work like one. Two three four five and then like notes, I don’t know, but that’s cool like if you just want to keep track of your schedule this way.

I think that is a really cool idea and then, like week, one of the month week, you know week two week, three four and you know sometimes there’s five, that’s kind of cool. I like that. You kind of like make it whatever you want, which is nice, so I know a lot of people really like this for just like sitting on their desk. You know if you work like in a more corporate place, and you really don’t want like this on your desk.

I don’t care, but I don’t. I actually don’t bring my planner to work, but I do have lots of accoutrements on my desk, which is totally fine in my working environment, and I totally understand if it’s not in yours. But this would be like a really easy thing to like. Take with you to like a meeting or something like that. Oh I should also mention the focus. Planner collection also has just like notebooks as well so yeah, but that’s something that take a peek at on the erin condren website.

I do not have one of those, but it is, you know something to look at if you’re in stir stir yield but yeah, let’s get to the back and see if there’s anything else back here, because sometimes there is – and sometimes there is not so we got To go all the way to December here we go done all right, so you’ve got our pages for the week. Okay and the very end hold on says. Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another: isn’t that the truth, and then on the back? It has also the woven wonder luxe cover on the back as well, so yeah these are really kind of cool.

I know this was like a really quick little walkthrough article, but this is pretty plain: there’s not much to it, but I can totally see you know certain types of people wanting to use something like this either on their desk or maybe it’s a family calendar or Something like that and yeah this is, this is actually really kind of cool. So let me know down in the comments. Are you a focused planner person? Are you a life planner person or maybe you’re, like a deluxe monthly person? I mean I don’t know, but let me know down in the comments below so that is going to be it for me today on the erin condren focus planner.

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.

So if you like this article, make sure to give it a thumbs up and feel free to subscribe. If you haven’t already thank y’all so much for reading 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.

2019/2020 The Focused Planner | Erin Condren

I was sent this item to take a peek at and share with you guys if I liked it so yeah. So thank you to the Erin Condren team for sending this my way. So the particular focused planner that I have there’s two separate options. This one is $ 39. You can personalize it.

I believe that there is a charge for that. Possibly you can always do. I think it’s down here, if I remember right, but there’s oil options and there’s also like the blind imprint, which is like reverse and brass embossing kind of so anyways. I chose not to personalize all so you can choose your calendar options, they’re all 12-month options, and you can start it like July to June or like all the way to just like January to December.

If that makes sense, so I got mine for a January through December. This book size is a 5 by 8, there’s also a 7 by 9 and then the 7 by 9. The larger one is $ 44. So let me show you what the 5 by 8 looks like next to a life planner. This is my current life planner that I am still working in until July. It might be July by the time you see this, I’m not sure but yeah. So this is the size different for you guys it’s like all the way up there, and then this one has a like luxe cover where this I got.

Ta looks cover this past year and I really love it so yeah, it’s like the same. You know nice hard board basically, but it’s very like it’s like a leather like feeling on there and it comes with a black coil. I’ve actually never had a black coil before I don’t think I don’t think I’ve ever had a black coil anyways but yeah. This is the black coil. Clearly it is so much smaller than the life planner one, but that’s because there’s less pages so, let’s open her up – and I should say also it only comes with the black cover – doesn’t have any options with that.

So, let’s open her up, donc done! Oh so pretty still has the woven wonder on the other side – and this is the focused planner from Erin Condren and I’ve actually never seen one of these in person before by the way so like bear with me. I’ve readed other people’s articles, but I’ve never actually like had one in my hands before this is kind of exciting. Alright. So then we have 2019 2020 holidays, which is great because you know you can start your planner anytime, but it is still a 12 month planner and then we’ve got important dates to remember and then all the months and then some notes pages and then there’s like These little oh cool, there’s like little cutouts and then here is your month at a glance which is great and then there’s a little next month over here, which I am loving, that they did that in the new Erin Condren life planners as well.

If you’re interested in that I’ll put a link somewhere for you, so this is January, and then this reminds me of like one of my dad’s planners that he had, but it was like way smaller. It’s a teeny, tiny, but it had these little like lifti tabs. That were just like that, so that’s kind of cool anyway, so this is kind of like where you can put, I don’t know it looks like maybe like notes or something for the month, so on this side, there’s some little circles, which basically are I don’t know To me, they look like checkboxes, but it seems like it’d, be really easy to make this really whatever you want cuz, it’s kind of pretty simplified over here.

It just says, notes and then aligned page and then same over here. Oh, are these undated? What I’m confused? Oh okay, so like there’s, no, like weekly pages hold on okay. So sorry, I’ve never seen these before alright. So I guess that this, maybe it would be your weekly page but it’d be like a Monday through Friday or like whatever five days. You work like one. Two three four five and then like notes, I don’t know, but that’s cool like if you just want to keep track of your schedule this way.

I think that is a really cool idea and then, like week, one of the month week, you know week two week, three four and you know sometimes there’s five, that’s kind of cool. I like that. You kind of like make it whatever you want, which is nice, so I know a lot of people really like this for just like sitting on their desk. You know if you work like in a more corporate place, and you really don’t want like this on your desk.

I don’t care, but I don’t. I actually don’t bring my planner to work, but I do have lots of accoutrements on my desk, which is totally fine in my working environment, and I totally understand if it’s not in yours. But this would be like a really easy thing to like. Take with you to like a meeting or something like that. Oh I should also mention the focus. Planner collection also has just like notebooks as well so yeah, but that’s something that take a peek at on the erin condren website.

I do not have one of those, but it is, you know something to look at if you’re in stir stir yield but yeah, let’s get to the back and see if there’s anything else back here, because sometimes there is – and sometimes there is not so we got To go all the way to December here we go done all right, so you’ve got our pages for the week. Okay and the very end hold on says. Arriving at one goal is the starting point to another: isn’t that the truth, and then on the back? It has also the woven wonder luxe cover on the back as well, so yeah these are really kind of cool.

I know this was like a really quick little walkthrough article, but this is pretty plain: there’s not much to it, but I can totally see you know certain types of people wanting to use something like this either on their desk or maybe it’s a family calendar or Something like that and yeah this is, this is actually really kind of cool. So let me know down in the comments. Are you a focused planner person? Are you a life planner person or maybe you’re, like a deluxe monthly person?
