Home Improvement Tracker | #ECLifePlanner

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Teacher Lesson Planner 2019/2020 | Erin Condren #ECSquad

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

If you’re interested in this planner or anything else that they have to sell on their website, there are some links down below. One of them is for first-timers if you’ve never purchased anything for erin condren. There is a special link for you, which is $ 10 off of your first purchase. You sign up for an account on air encounter comm and then we’ll send you a couple of different emails and one is going to be a $ 10 off of your first order.

Coupon so make sure to look out for that, and then there’s also another link down below to the erin condren website for people that already have an account. That’s an affiliate link. It really helps me out if you guys end up using that for your order or any order that you place. Your order is not more expensive because you use that or anything like that. I think that’s a lot of miscommunication from other brands that may or may not do that I mean I don’t know, but all it does is let Erin Condren comm know that I sent you there and then I receive a small commission for that.

So thank you to everyone. That’s used it and thank you to anyone that will use it in the future. I really really appreciate it and so does Doyle, because it goes towards his kibble and bacon budget. So anyway, thank you guys for sticking around if you’ve stuck it out. This long make sure to give this article a thumbs up, feel free to subscribe for more feel free to follow me on my social, so they’re all down below I’m the most active on Instagram.

Just FYI, if you want to see weird stories and pictures of my dog and stuff, feel free to follow me there, but thanks so much for reading and I’ll see y’all in the next article bye guys well folks, it’s time to kick it old school

New Fall Products + 2020 Petite Planners | Erin Condren

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

So I hope you guys go and check out some of those links. Also, there is a link down below actually there’s two links down below for the Erin Condren website.

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

Life & Apples Wellness Planner | First Impressions

This is the undated Life and apples, the wellness planner. It’s a daily motivational journal for healthy living and it says active life, balanced eating and happiness. This is something that is available on Amazon. I will leave a link below for you guys.

I am currently looking on my Amazon and it is retailing for $ 24.97. I just wanted to let you all know that and then there’s some information on the back as well. So it says the wellness planner, a daily planner and journal for staying healthy, motivated and inspired. It helps you focus on your diet and fitness goals, eat healthy and plan meals, lead an active lifestyle and stay fit, build and maintain positive habits, feel accomplished and happier, and then down here it has 240 pages, it’s a 90 day layout or it’s a 90 day Daily layout, I should say: there’s meal planning, a food journal, gratitude, fitness schedule, goals, weekly review, a habit, tracker and inspirational quotes, so their website is life and apples.

Calm, but, like I said you can get it on Amazon as well. First things: first, there is this elastic band closure, which I do like for these kind of more like softer planners, and let’s pull this guy off here all right here we go. Let’s take take it off. Oh it’s naked now so anyway, on the front, it is like a nice kind of a know like a faux leather and it’s going to be kind of hard to see, but maybe you can see it, but there is like a little embossed Apple on the front.

The spine is just like a softer leather as well, and then the back is just plain but embossed on the bottom. It says life and apples with a little apple on that as well. There is a little pen loop, which is really nice. So, let’s open this bad boy up and it does feel nice. It’s not like a gritty feeling. It’s like a very smooth feeling, even though there’s definitely like you know some. It looks like there’s texture to it, but there’s not, but I don’t know I don’t know.

I don’t mind it so anyway, there’s a little card in there that says, download your free, healthy living, ebooks and printables at life and apples, calm, a /pages, a slash going to sand. It looks like you can sign up to get a 10 % off coupon on your next order. If you sign up there, that’s cool alright, so first impression of opening it. I hadn’t opened it yet. The paper feels nice. It feels thick, but it’s like the front page, so it might feel a little different.

So in the front it just says life and apples, the wellness planner undated, alright. So oh, this is like stitch bound. Oh that’s cool! Alright, so it has different sections. So section 1 is mind, set concepts and guidelines how to use this planner a self-fulfilling promise. Section 2 is a daily planner and weekly project progress. I can’t talk today here: goals daily planner wellness, no daily wellness planner.

I told you guys. I can’t talk today. Weekly progress review and then section 3 is your progress and inspiration, a review, exciting things ahead and notes cool alright. So here is just some information on mindset. I’m not going to read this whole thing because I want to get through this a little faster for you guys, so you can kind of see the inside of this a little bit. So I think it’s just like about talking about what this planner is.

All about is what it kind of looks like of like how to set a short-term goal daily motivation. Things like that, so yeah, oh and then there’s like a little thing of like how to use this planner cool. So it talks about like gratitude affirmation active day. Today’s meal planning a wellness summary and all that good stuff. Alright, so, oh you have to make a promise to yourself. Apparently, when you have this planner all right cool.

Well, let’s make a promise y’all, so the promise to myself the day and date. I will use this wellness planner to create a lasting positive change in my health and wellness, and then you know why basically, but why you want to change it and then you’re prepared to change and commit and then sign it, alright. Okay, this has a lot of structure to it. So if you guys know me in any of my planner styles, I really don’t like a lot of structure, but I think this would be great for somebody that likes a lot of structure, especially if they’re trying to get motivated with meal planning meal.

Prepping being active things like that, so I mean I haven’t looked through the rest of it, but I can just already kind of tell that it’s going to be a lot of structure. So anyway, you got my goals. So then you can put in a bunch of goals, so your goal and you want to achieve them by and then the action steps and there’s three lines with little faint checkboxes. And it looks like there’s five on this page and then now we are into the daily planner okay.

So it’s one day on two pages, so you have the day end date, which it’s undated. So you can start this at any time. You write what you’re grateful for your daily affirmation your active day. It says, exercise workouts and opportunities to keep active today, and it’s got seven different lines with checks and then notes. It says today’s priorities to do special events, etc, and seven category or seven lines as well with little checks.

So I mean clearly you would use this for like food and activity tracking. But if you had like two dues like hey, I need to run to the store. I need to go grocery shopping or I need to like pick up the dry-cleaning like you could put that in here. It looks like and then down at the bottom. It says Universal wellness elements, are you getting enough question mark and it says: Erin, sunlight, water and nutrients, joy and fun, and sleep sleep is something that I definitely struggle with.

I don’t know if you guys struggle with it out there, but I definitely struggle with sleep water. I don’t struggle with that at all. Alright, so over into the right hand, side over here it says today’s meal plan and then it has breakfast and some lines. Lunch dinner and snacks, so you can either plan that ahead or you can even just write it in as it happens, this is small enough that it would definitely fit and I think, most people’s purses.

Let me see if I can find the size on the interwebs here all right, so this is five and a half inches by eight inches. So yeah I mean you could definitely throw this in your bag or your work bag or keep it on your desk at work or just keep it at home too. I mean it’s definitely small enough where it could suit those needs, and it says on the scale of one to five. How was today and how well did you follow the plan and it’s one through five and it just says what could be improved tomorrow? Then it’s got like a little quote from George Eliot and says the strongest principle of growth lies in the human choice.

Isn’t that the truth? Gosh, it’s getting it’s getting deep on the FDA Channel today, all right and so day and date all over again – and I believe hmm, let’s see here all right, so you’ve got a whole week and then you have a weekly review. So you have your day and date, success and wins. Oh and all the days are the same like the day and date and then like your today’s meal plan. All of those are the same throughout the seven days.

So your weekly review, you put the day and the date successes and wins, and so celebrate your wins. What were some of the motivating moments, people and things that helped you have a healthier week and then you have three lines to write about that and it says: needs improvement. How can you make next week a healthier one, any pitfalls to avoid and it’s got three lines? The next section is insight and lessons.

What have you learned about yourself this week and three more lines and then over here is the weekly progress tracking and it says, track your daily bi-weekly and weekly healthy habits. So it’s got three sections here and then Monday through Sunday, so you can either check that off or you know, if there’s a certain amount of ounces of water or something like that, you could do that as well and then over here it says, track your progress Towards your goals, use parameters like weight, number of weekly, workouts, new habits, etc, and it says, parameter this week.

My goal that’d be nice. If you’re trying to fluctuate your weight or something like that and then weekly notes, it’s got a bunch of lines and some checkboxes as well all right. So then, we’re back into the week again all right, and then you got another weekly, okay, let’s kind of see what else is going on. I kind of like that. This is stitch because it like lays like it lays flat. Like I don’t know, if you guys can see that, but it does lay flat it’s hard to see because I like tipping it up, but it does lay flat which is kind of nice.

It does have these as well these little ribbons Wow words are hard today. So you could ideally have one of them for your day and then one of them for your week, especially if you’re going to do one of those like weekly habit, trackers or their parameters or something so yeah. But let me find, if there’s anything else going on in this planet, that just might be it I’m not really sure. So, let’s take a peek here and then I’ll talk about paper quality in just a moment.

Okay looks like that’s all the same. Oh, oh there’s different pages hold on hold on hold on okay, so in the back okay. So this is, after all, of the 90 days, so in the back, it has review Congrats on your commitment to a healthier life, write down the accomplishments that you’re most proud of in detail. What you need to continue and improve on your journey to wellness. It says I accomplished and says: look back at your goals and notice the progress you’ve made, what are your big list accomplishments and you can write them down and says I’m committed and then exciting things the head.

Oh and then you’ve got a bunch of notes. Pages. Very cool, alright, so we’ve got 3 1 or 1 2 3 4 line notes pages and then you’ve got 1, 2, 3 3 normal pages that are blank. And then this one’s like more of a Oh 5 normal pages and then this one’s one more like a it’s, not cardstock, but it’s like thick, oh and then in the back, there’s a little pocket. So you can put you know like a something in there.

Some secrets or something so yeah, so this is the planner yeah. So the paper/quality feels pretty nice. It is a little thinner than like the Erin Condren. If you guys readed my regular planning stuff, I use an Erin Condren, it’s a little bit thinner than that, and I can tell by the ink saturation underneath as well. I don’t have time to do a pen test today, I’m kind of in the middle of doing a whole bunch of things in my home right now.

So I don’t have time to do that today, but I feel like any like regular, like ballpoint, not ballpoint, but yeah a ballpoint pen or like a gel pen would probably be really nice with this. Like I said before, there is a ton of structure with this planner like a lattice structure with this planner. So if that’s something that you’re really seeking, I think that this might be a really good. I for you, if you really want to get motivated with your food, and your fitness and tracking things like this might be a good one for you.

I know that some people have a real trouble with planners that don’t have any structure at all. I kind of thrive on minimal structure, which is probably why I’ve never gotten into bullet journaling, because there’s like no structure with that. So I do like my Erin Condren hourly, because it just gives me hours and I can put in what I want to put in. That’s like great for me, but any more structure than that.

I don’t like so this isn’t something that I would definitely use. However, I can see the value in it for sure, especially if you’re someone that just needs to have a question posed and then write it in so like having a category to say, hey. I am grateful for this, and these are my notes – and this is my lunch plan like that – I can totally understand how that works really well for some people, so I think the planner is pretty cool.

I actually really like the size of it just for portability, because if I were to use it, I would want to take this on the go and grab my pen and take it. You know to the office or take it to visit friends or whatever and like really keep track of stuff, because if that’s what this planner is all about with tracking things, it’s just something that I would definitely want to be portable, which it is it’s quite light.

As well, it’s really nice, it’s not bulky, it’s very thin, so I do like that that it would fit in in most purses. I would say again if you are interested in this planner at all feel free to check out the links down below. If you all have any questions about, anything else feel free to leave them in the comments below and if you guys want me to review any other planners out there in the world. Also, let me know in the comments down below you guys have sent me some great ideas and I’ve been trying to get as many of those planner reviews and first impressions on my blog as fast as possible.

So anyway, that’s going to be it for me today. Thank you guys so much for hanging out with me for a little part of your day. If you liked the article make sure to give it a thumbs up, if you like this type of content and want to see more 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.

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

2019/2020 Academic Planner | Erin Condren

I remember the academic planner back in the day when it was like bound like it wasn’t in a coil. Do you guys remember that anyway? I do. However, first things first, thank you so much the Erin Condren team for sending me this.

I really appreciate it and I want to share this with you and do a little flip through. So let’s talk about the Erin Condren planner, first of all, these retail for $ 37 and that’s without any upgrades. I believe that the coils are ten dollars additional for the different color coils. I am a fan. I got the Platinum coil so that one is actually included in there. Your calendar options it’s a 12 month planner, but you can choose August through July September, through August and then also January through December, just depending on how your school year works, or some people use the academic planner just like for their daily life as well.

You can also personalize your cover and do all of those things, and I believe that the only option for the insides is colorful. When I ordered mine, I didn’t have an option for colorful or neutral, so that could be a part of that so anyway, let’s flip her open and take a little peek. This is also a 7 by 9 planner. Here’s, my planner, I am currently using. So it’s the same, it’s the same and the coil size is exactly the same as this one.

This one, this one’s seen better days, cuz, it’s really full anyway. So this is the academic planner, oh yeah, I got August through July. I could not remember which one I ordered oopsie, there’s also a spot for your name school and then we’ve got 2009 or end of 2019 here and then 2020, and this has a little projects tab. So here’s your projects – oh, this – is really pretty well. I kind of like this.

I know a lot of people use this for work as well, especially if they have projects and things like that. I don’t work in an environment where I have projects I work on for a long time once they get to my desk, then I’m usually done with them with day. So I don’t have like long progressive projects, but if you’re like a project manager or someone that has ongoing projects throughout the year, this would actually be a really cool planner for you to have at work.

But anyway, this has a projects and exams or you could just do projects a description. It says class and then details. This could be just like the project name and then details, there’s deadlines, important date and then like a little completed, checkbox, which is also very satisfying. So there’s quite a few on here, so there’s three and three and then we’ve got some more pages and more pages. These are cool, it’d, be kind of cool just to have like this is just me thinking um.

It would be kind of cool to have just a planner or like a notebook that has just these pages in it, like just projects and exams, or just something like that. That would actually be really cool because y’all know if you’re in school you’ve got way more projects and exams in a year than this typically so actually be really cool anyway. So now we are in to the planner. So we’ve got our August tab here and then we have a notes page.

It’s lined with little like kind of rainbow color watercolor thing I don’t cool alright and then we’ve got August, which let me see where my planner is for 2020. Give me a second: I want to see what it looks like compared to this alright, so this is the planner I’m actually going to be using starting this upcoming July, which it might be July by the time you see this, I’m not really sure so, but I Want to go to the monthly page and see how different it looks or does it I don’t know so.

Here’s kind of the differences so yeah. This one is like very colorful and has like you know the colorful tabs and the you know the rounded corners and things like that, and then this one is just like straight corners and still has like over here. I put this, but it still has the color blocked area as well so cool. Alright, I just wanted to see the difference and see if there was you know, huge differences or not so yeah, but love that they have the upcoming month right there.

It’s always super helpful, all right and then we have july 2019, the very end, and then we have august. So we’ve got monday tuesday wednesday to do lists, and then things are kind of broken out a little bit, Thursday Friday and then Saturday Sunday. Our two little things so again this would be great for work if you work like a normal like Monday, through Friday, type of a job and then yeah. So these are the weekly pages and just for comparison, because I have this here and if you all are debating between you know a life planner or whatever I have the hourly, but this is you know this is the difference.

Basically, you know you just got more room. I think this one just has like more room to write in it, just because your Saturday and Sunday are so small. But again, if you don’t, you know, want to put academic stuff or work stuff on Saturdays and Sundays. I don’t know, but like I used to actually work like a retail job where I had Sundays and Tuesdays off, so I would probably if I was still in that job, which I’m clearly not.

I would maybe make this like my Sunday and Tuesday and then like re-name, the days or whatever to just fit my needs, but yeah cool, oh and then at the very end you get some notes pages, which is actually really great. So you can, you know, clearly write notes or anything else that you need. You know jot down or remember so then, we’ve got September and I like that it has like the little watercolor things over there.

I think that’s really cute. Maybe they did that for like the colorful version in here, because it is quite subtle, you know, and then you know just like their little rainbow thing again and then October. So all the months are the same and I don’t want to be super redundant and go through every single month, because that would be a boring article Emily. So, let’s go to the very back in July I like to always see if they have other things in the back, because sometimes they do and sometimes they don’t so, let’s go through July and see what’s going on back here.

Okay, so we have them notes pages like normal and then okay and then it says, arriving at one goal is the start of another awesome, and then this has a bunch of the Erin Condren stickers, which are great. I I always forget that they’re in the back um, there’s ones that say exam midterm test quiz read paper: do a study group study no class vacation and then we got a couple blank ones too, which is really nice.

So that is that, and then there is my back cover so yeah. That is it for the article. I hope you guys enjoyed it. This is the academic planner for 2019 2020 from Erin Condren. There is a link down below for you guys if anyone is interested in checking it out if you’ve never purchased anything from Erin Condren there’s a special link for you that will give you $ 10 off of your first purchase.

planner changes | day 16 #VLOGTOBER

It’s like 8 o’clock, but I am so tired, Doyle’s behind me doing his Doyle dog things and I’ve just been jamming on my planner I readed. This is us because I missed it yesterday, because I had my hair appointment, so I wasn’t able to read it. So I just readed it like you know, NBC calm or whatever they have the episodes up afterwards.

I ordered some shoes on Amazon which will be here this weekend because, sadly, I actually already threw them away. My gray superga sneakers, like completely broke yesterday, like it was bad, like the part of the heel, came off on one of the shoes, as I was like trying to slip them off. I’m like what the heck and then I looked at the other one and the other one was all ratted up there to him like okay.

Clearly, these shoes have seen better days. It is time – and I was debating I’m like well, could I donate them or something? I’m like no they’re they’re beyond repairs, Oh anyway, yeah, so those needed to just go away. So I ended up buying the same super goes again and then I had these tennis shoes. I think they were adidas tennis, shoes, they’re, not very expensive, but I had them in my cart or like my wish list for a long time, and I’m like, I should just get those and try them on because the those ones like whoever the seller is.

It’s free returns like back, so I don’t to pay for shipping back, so I’m like well. If they don’t fit or I don’t like them, then whatever what else did I get it? Oh, I got furnace filters, but that’s exciting, but yeah. What else did I get? Oh and I also got a humidifier for my room, so I needed to grab one of those, so I did I just I was trying to get the cheap ones like the $ 20 ones because they tend to get all gunky like, even though I clean them.

It doesn’t matter so it’s like at the end of the season because I use it every single night. It just gets really gross, so I don’t know of a good way to clean them. I’m sure, there’s probably like YouTube article. I should probably read or something but I live in Minnesota and it’s really cold here and I’m constantly like outside walking the dog and all that good stuff. So it’s like going from warm to cold to cold, warm and all that good stuff, and it’s not good for the skin either so anyway, while I was reading, this is us.

I was jamming on my planner, so, as a bunch of things have changed due to me not having surgery tomorrow and then my mom not coming in today, which is unfortunate, but she changed her flight, so we’re good to go um yeah, so I just jammed on My planner and then this Friday I have an oil change, so this is like. Let me give you a better view, so that is my first half right there. So anyway got a bunch of stuff done.

This first half of the week got my hair done. What a girls night with some friends um this my tubal had to get rescheduled, so I had to talk to them about a different time. I talked to my mom also my pH test, which is supposed to be on the 30th, isn’t happening then, because I have my surgery on the 31st and I can’t have my pH test like still inserted in me. It’s a time so anyway, so yeah had a lot of good things and then this is today did a bunch of stuff.

We had cake day obsolete folder. My client, I cleaned like my cube, and then this is kind of what I’ve done. Oh and then I had an Instagram winner as well. I am currently giving away a simply gilded little pack of stuff. I typically do that. Every single time that I get a subscription box, like whatever I don’t, whatever, whatever I won’t, keep and use, I will gift to somebody else and I held the held it on Instagram.

I always hold on Instagram. So if you guys ever want to follow me it’s down below but um, I have a winner and I just sent them a message like maybe five minutes ago. So you’ve always got 24 hours to contact me back with their information and then, unfortunately, if they don’t contact them back within 24 hours, then I have to move on to a new winner. So um yeah, it’s just really all I’ve been doing yeah a headache is still there.

I know a lot of you are going to ask. The headache is still there. It never really goes away anymore, but you know I’m powering through trying to take just some advil and not take my crazy migraine medicine but um yeah. It’s it’s! It’s not going great, but you know I’m going to try to have a good attitude about it and power through guys. You just sometimes just got ta try to power through, and sometimes it really sucks, but you got to do it, but anyway, I’m just going to do this.

One take vlog here, cuz. I am going to run and go to bed because I’m tired and I didn’t really do anything fun after work today, like I didn’t go anywhere. So I didn’t even take you guys with me, but Doyle and I are going to go. You guys probably can’t hear it, but he is snoring it’s funny um anyway, but I’m going to let you guys go. Thank you guys for hanging out with me today and I will see y’all tomorrow with another vlog bye eyes.

Well, folks, it’s time to kick it old school

Weekly Planner Spreads | August 2019

I know I really don’t do plant with me type articles anymore. I will link my playlist up above if you would like to read you know. What’s been giving me a lot of planner piece recently is just kind of filling it in when I get home and making it really work. For me, if y’all are interested, I am using an Erin Condon condon, an Erin Condren, binder system.

This year. I have the Navy cover and I chose the hourly colorful version and I really like that you can. You know, take these pages out and stuff like that. Like it’s super helpful, you know when you’re trying to decorate – or you know when I’m right-handed. So if I’m trying to write something on here, like I don’t bump into this, I can just pop this little sucker out. So it’s really actually helpful for me so anyway, let’s talk about this week, so this week is July 29 through August 4, and this was a pretty alright week did a bunch of stuff and my mom and I were kind of getting stuff ready for Niagara Falls, Which you’ll actually see in this like planner, I guess you’re not going to actually see Niagara Falls in the article.

I’m sorry, if you guys want to see the Niagara Falls, article I’ll link it for you guys, so we chatted about it. On Monday, we already had this plan like last year and then I got the hotel booked and everything, so it kind of like figured out a plan, and then you know we kind of just like went from there. I’ve been having some problems recently. Unfortunately, some health issues, so I have been working from home.

It’s like digestive stomach problems, so you’ll, probably guys, will learn more about that in September, because I have some more doctor’s appointments and stuff scheduled that I need to take care of. So anyway. I’ve been working from home a lot recently because of that, because you know my just had to be close to a bathroom which is gross, but it’s part of life. You know also on the third, I went to Ryan’s apartment with Doyle and we had a great time and Doyle now owns his apartment.

So anyway, so that’s a good time. Oh and then I also released my ticket information for my 20 year high school reunion, which is coming up this October. So it’s coming up really darn fast. So anyway, that was this week and then we get into the week of the 5th through the 11th, and this was an OK ish week. I actually, on Monday, had hail damage on my vehicle at work, so that was interesting, went to girls night with my friends and we wouldn’t had well tacos.

I don’t know. I think I just had rice. I can’t remember anyway, and then the next day I made my hail claim with my insurance company and doing all that good stuff. The next day I had a migraine, so I had these are my little migraine. People things anyways, so that was kind of a crummy day. On the next day I had to work from home because you know my well stickers. I worked on my packing list that evening and I wrapped up a gift for a friend, and then this was a really bad day.

It was a sick day. My mom came over to help me with some things and tried to sleep. Couldn’t do it my brother? Actually came over later on that day cuz he had to pick up some mail, but the nice thing about that Jay was my friend’s daughter was born. Charlotte was born that day at 9:29, so it was very exciting and then the next day I did some laundry. I made my collab list: the actually the wild for planners sale is going on right now, but this article is going to go up probably way after this, but I was making kind of my list and then I took a nap because clearly I wasn’t feeling of The day before and started to pack my bags and then I went to the twins game for a little while we didn’t stay the whole time.

But we went to the twins game for a little while and then I did some meal prep, so yeah and then the next week, I’m actually in Niagara Falls. I had to contact my doctor about my problems, so I need to talk to him about test stomach issues migraines and my prescription refills, so we’ll get into that in the next week. This I worked from home these two days because I just was not able to deal that makes sense.

Then, on Wednesday I actually was in to the office that day, which is great Rand at the post office, and then I went to Ryan’s apartment to drop off little Doyle dog, because Doyle was hanging out with Ryan from a man with the plans for the weekend. So that was fun. My mom and I left on Thursday morning bright and early and drove to New York, but the we actually stayed in Ohio on Thursday and then we basically after lunch, we got to Niagara Falls.

Our check-in was at like 2:30 or 3:00 or something – and we got there like right at that time, so it worked out great. So we actually went to like a little Niagara Falls movie, which I totally recommend. We had some Chinese food that night and then we went up on this. Like looking pier area. I don’t know what that’s called is probably totally wrong, but we readed the light, show and fireworks which is really cool and then the next day it actually rained.

Quite a bit in the morning and then we went over to Canada. We went to a really great Italian restaurant called mamma mias, which was wonderful. It was recommendation from one of you guys and then you know, did a bunch of other little adventures in Canada and then came back. And then we went on me to the mist I got super burnt and then for dinner. We had went to Hard Rock and then on Sunday morning we started driving back to Minnesota.

So we just drove – and I just put in like food stuff because it was just like that’s all we did and then we stopped in Illinois for the evening and then our tolls total from like the beginning to the end, was 74 dollars and 40 cents. We should have just flew there anyway, so now with this week, which we’re in this is today we drove for part of the day, and then I picked up toil kind of later on in the afternoon.

It was about three four somewhere in there, so I was able to stop by Ryan’s apartment, which was kind of on our way home, and he and then I unpacked did a little bit of laundry and that was kind of my Monday and then on Tuesday went To work, which was great all that good stuff and then I went to Abra to get a Hale estimate and all that good stuff, and I had to email acuity, which is the insurance company that I have once I got the estimate and then the next day.

Unfortunately, I had to work from home again I did have an appointment with my doctor and we have a bunch of things that we are now going to be dealing with yeah. So then my mom and I actually went to Applebee’s that evening and then I had to go to Walgreens to pick up a prescription next day I worked from home as well, and then I had to make a consultation appointment for a surgery I need to have, And then I also this was the first day of the wild collab sale, which is right here and we’re currently in it.

There are a bunch of shops that I shopped at right away, and then there are a few today that I am going to shop as well, because I just can’t help myself plus I’ll, be doing a haul for you guys to the next day I had my Culligan service come into my home. They just come into my home a couple of times a year and maintain my unit and things like that. So they do that when I’m not home or sometimes I am home, but whatever they know how to get in, went to lunch with some co-workers and then helped out.

My HR person, with some false store apparel items, ran to Target to get some groceries and such, and then I got sick that night again, so that was no bueno. The next day I actually got my acuity check from here from my estimate so figured that out. So I ran to the bank and did my deposit. I also went to Walgreens cuz. I had another pickup and then there was a planner meet up at the maple grove library which I went to, and then I went to Olive Garden with Ryan, from a man with the plans and then today this is this morning.

I had to place an amazon order. There was just a couple things I was missing. I was supposed to be going to a brunch with the Minnesota trio, which is Ryan from a man with the plans and Jodi from life’s organized chaos. I will leave their blogs down below for you guys if you want to check them out, because you totally should how ever Jodie’s plans changed. She has been doing a ton of traveling for work and she had to leave a little bit earlier than expected.

So we were going to reschedule that, so it’s been we maybe sometime in September that we will get together. I had to drop off things at the lab and you can see what that is. Um part of the doctor thing and then today I am filming. Look at this, I can do this um. I already did my sublet guilded subscription box, my September budget. I actually just filmed, and my August spreads that’s what I’m doing right now so yay so anyway.

That is it for this article. I hope you guys enjoyed seeing all of my spreads for the month of August in 2019. I know I’m not really doing the plan with meas anymore, but I just really enjoy coming home and just filling in stuff or things I know about or whatever it’s just like really helpful for me and if you guys are interested, I will link up in the Corner my what’s, it called my planner piece of article.

I really talked about kind of the groove and what I’m doing this year and how it’s helping me quite a bit so anyway, I will leave that up there for y’all, but anyway I am going to get to publishing no uh-huh, taking this footage and putting it In my computer and I’ll probably be doing a little bit of editing this evening, not sure when this article is going to go up, but it’ll go up a fairly soon for you guys, hopefully within the next week or two, and also I need to do a Little bit more shopping today before the wild, collab sale ends so anyway, that’s it for me.
