Finding Planner Peace

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Reunion Planner | Erin Condren Deluxe Monthly

I am going to share how I am going to be using the deluxe monthly planner from Erin Condren, and I actually purchased myself another one, because the one that I previously had was the full year of 2020 and what I’m using it for. I actually need like now like the months now so anyways I did a little well. I did a little shopping because I am going to use a couple of these items, but actually a lot of these items all of these items.

What am I talking about in the planner, so I figured, I would just wait and show you guys, so I got this little flair thing. This is one of those little drusy drusy. I don’t know how to say it can someone. Let me know in the comments like how you say this, because I’ve been saying it, I’m probably saying it wrong. Let’s see here, did you do here? We go. I actually have the white one on my wallet, but I got the black one because I just don’t know I thought it was cute and why not right? I also got a Polanyi pack, it’s just great, so I am going to take this out.

Okay, I need like a garbage pile over here, so I figured I would put this on here because you know the cute, the cute. Alright, I got this so I could put all my stickers inside of it and then let’s go to this. This is the actual planner that I’m going to be using. However, whoops there’s like a little these kind of pop off, sometimes um. However, they did not have the option to have this like school, one in the monthly deluxe.

So I had to purchase this separately, which is totally fine, so let me rip this guy off do do if you guys want to see my other monthly deluxe article, which is going to be like way more in-depth than this one feel free to click. The little link in the card right there and yeah okay. So let’s snap on the new covers and then I’ll explain what the heck I’m even using this planner for this year. It’s always easier like for me at least it’s easier.

If I go like this all right now, we’re ready to go all right. I just got a random new cover. Okay, so here we go um. This is for FHS, a class of 1999, a reunion, and yes, my 20-year reunion is this year and I am on the planning committee, ha ha, ha ha ha ha ha right, so hey grace, so the monthly deluxe I thought would be awesome for this. Our scheduled event is actually happening in October and I believe it’s October 5th and yeah.

I really don’t need the rest of these months, but I have like all the notes pages, which is fabulous and I purchased a little pen holder as well, because I thought it’d be great for that, because we have meetings and stuff like that with, like some of Our vendors and all that good stuff, oh this, should have been like way higher hold on. Oh, it’s still work. I don’t know. Maybe let’s uh, let’s see, ok, because I want to put this a case of pocket on here and it’s going to be like tighten.

Okay, I also got these. These are the two large corner pockets. So let’s put these babies on, and I also have these on my Erin Condren life planner that I’m using for this upcoming year so yeah, because I’m a person that never never never actually writes on these. I wish I was that person, but I am like clearly not so yeah and then let’s open this bad boy up over here, I’m going to use this one right here and then all right.

So we are good to go right there, okay, awesome, so I also got some other things for this planner. I don’t know what I’m going to use. These are like little graduation, wah she’s from my old Etsy shop. I no longer have the Etsy shop, but I figured I would pull a couple of those from my old stock. I also got this one. I thought was super cute from wanton and a million it’s a little like graduation, one so funny, and then because of my mascot in high school was the Tigers.

I found these and I just thought they were super cute, and this is a company I had never purchased from before called a plan and go, and then these were just like little tiger heads. I think she had ones that were like tiger heads, but like invent boxes as well so anyway, but I thought that these would be really cute to mark out like no sending emails or whatever. Also, I got a few things from plan to plan sticker coat.

I’m not sure what I’m going to use, but you know whatever. So there is some like crayons and school buses, also like little person writing emails, because that’s kind of how the whole committee is communicating. We’ve got like our drinks and then also we’ve got like little apples, and then I thought this would be really cute too so yeah. So since I’m only using this for the rest of 2019, I am going to pull out what I don’t want in this planner, because I just don’t want it to be like really bulky, if I have to take it to like meetings and stuff like that.

So this might be a little sacrilege, but you know what I’m pulling out pieces of paper. I was thinking about uncoiling and recoiling it, but that just seems like way too much of a problem, so we are taking things out of the planner and all I really need here is well. I don’t even really need this to be completely honest. I just take this out yeah, I don’t care about this. Okay, bye-bye look read me: destroy a planner.

Yeah. Okay still want this, and then I want the July tab. Obviously, okay and then the reunions happening in October. I will keep November, but December yeah got ta, go all right, I’m just going to rip out some pages right now, so maybe I’ll like lay some music over this, because some of you are probably like crying reading me do this, so I apologize all right. So I’m done ruining things you guys can look now anyway, so I got up to the very end of the last month.

That’s in here, which is June, and then I’m going to keep the notes pages that were part of the June thing and then over here are more no well okay hold on ripping things out again. Sorry guys don’t need this and I really don’t need it because it just has that on it. So I’m really just getting rid of one notes, page so yeah, but then all of these our notes pages so yeah, I’m so excited yeah. And then you got the stickers which I’ll keep in here and then you get the folder and then I put these little guys in there as well yeah.

So this is this: is my new planner, I’m so so excited, and I am going to be doing a some decorating in here at some point I don’t know when, but at some point I will and I’m really going to be excited to share with you guys. This stuff and then what I’m going to do I’ll just get it all set up right now, someone I used these put them in here do this is like a total reminder to myself, but I need to email everybody like like now so yeah.

I am all set and ready to go for my reunion, this fall yay so anyway, and that is it for this article. I hope you guys enjoyed it. I just wanted to share with you guys of what I was going to be using mine, for I know, there’s lots of different uses for the Erin Condren deluxe monthly planner, if you guys are interested in the Erin, Condren, deluxe, monthly, planner, or anything that you saw Today, in this article there are some links down below for you guys.

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.
