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.

2020/2021 Layers Accessories Preview | Erin Condren #ECSquad

I just posted the Erin Condren life planner open box for 2020 slash 2021. I will leave that link up in a card for you and down below. I figured I wanted to do the accessories separate than the life planner, because I know some people are just interested in the life planner and some people are interested in just the accessories plus.

The article would have been like an hour long, so we’re going to break this puppy up. So here’s just some of the accessories that are going to be available on launch day by the way public launch day is on April 29 and then also, if you’re, an ec insider. Your launch day is on April 27. So you have a couple of extra days, which is very exciting, so the planners will be up then, as well as some of the accessories there’s, probably more accessories that I didn’t get and that’s okay.

So first things first! Thank you so much to the Erin Condren team, Sam and Tori. If you guys always think of me, thank you so much. I got this all in PR and I’m just going to tell you my thoughts. So let’s go through this a one by one and I will share what I know all right. First things. First, these little dudes are some of my favorite things. These are called complement cards and they’re like little business cards, and I absolutely love them.

I bring them to my office. I think this is one of the most like underrated, Erin Condren products. Basically of all time. I think I don’t know so I use these a lot in the office. Like I said, I mean clearly I’m not in the office right now, because we’re all under stay at home orders under quarantine because of everything that’s going on. But I have given a lot of these out in the past if somebody’s having a bad day or they closed a big sale or something like that.

So like this one sounds like I’m so proud of you, it’s got a blank back, so you can just write a little note and stuff, and the really fun thing is: is I’ll just leave this on somebody’s desk and write a little note to them. Like you know, I hope you’re having a great day or whatever it is and then, like you know, a year later, I walk by their desk and they, like still have it up. It’s like super cute, so anyways.

I love these. I think these are awesome and they’re in the colorful layers. That is the theme for this year. So you’re going to see the majority of my stuff that I received in PR is colorful layers. So this is the first thing the compliment cards. Also, this bad boy is a pen and it is a ballpoint pen. They have these last year as well in the kaleidoscope. They have the gold hardware and I did test this out already.

It is a black ballpoint pen and yeah. It’s just a ballpoint pen. It’s not a marker or anything like that, so it’s just, but it’s really cool it have a cute case. You can actually pull. Could you pull this out hold on hold on? I need to disassemble things I feel like you, can pull this out and use this for something else. Ooh hold on. Oh, yes, okay, sorry, I’m breaking all your stuff, erin condren yeah! You could pull this out and use it as like a little storage box.

If you wanted, but ya thought this was really cool and definitely going to use that there are also a bunch of stickers and we’ve got just some basic event box stickers with some silver foil. We’ve also got some birthday stickers with silver foil, and then we’ve got this one here, that’s more than rose gold, foil and the gold foil, which is my favorite, love those and then another thing that is one of my favorite faves.

I use them so often every single year is these stylized sticky notes they clip right into the coil of your life, planner they’re, so versatile, so functional. Actually, here, let’s do this. Let me let me show you the pen real quick and you just turn it like. It’s not a click like it’s a turn and so yeah there you go and it’s a black ink pen. I don’t know if I said that, maybe I do I’m losing it. I don’t even know what day it is right now.

No, but I love these and I use them every single year. I always stock up on them too, because I go through several of these per year. Next up is a dashboard, it has priorities and to do, and you can use your dry erase markers on them or wet erase markers. I don’t know I never use them and then over on the back side, it has Monday through Sunday people use this for like meal planning or if there’s like a bunch of to do things or whatever you can also use which I’ve seen.

People do little sticky notes on here, rather than actually writing on here too. So I don’t know everyone does something a little bit different. So I think that’s the fun idea of planning and you just kind of do what works for you and your family in your life and whatever you want to track or shorten dates whatever so yeah. And then these also have the clip in just like the stylized sticky notes, so they fit perfectly in your coil bound planner or they also fit perfectly in the ring bound planner as well.

Next up we’ve got these beautiful bookmarks speaking of fitting perfectly in the planner. Oh, I didn’t take. All the adhesive off should have done that before the article started. Oh well, but these fit perfectly in your life planner as well. Every year I end up getting these and you know what I end up using them for is to cut washy. Here’s my one from last year, that’s like legit just sitting on my desk because I use it every day, sometimes multiple times a day and yeah.

So this has all of the different colorful layers and you can choose you know which one you want to use or you can use all of them and you can clip them in and I feel like. I got the daily planner this year and I feel like with the daily planner. You definitely need a little bookmark just to keep you on task. I mean, maybe not just depending on how you use it, but I think I’m going to be using these a little bit more this year with that we planner for sure there is also some washi tape.

This year, we’ve got the neutral layers. Let me assume you guys in the little boat, so you can see it, I’m so sorry about the glare you guys, but you know I only have a certain amount of time to film these articles. So that’s just how it’s going to go and then so. This is a neutral and then this one is colorful. Just you can see what it would look like. You know on like a white paper background, but I just love this and they’re, not the paper tape they’re, actually like the washi tape, so there are little textured and they cut really well.

I’ve already cut one of them with one of these guys. You know these. These little dudes and they cut really really well – and I really really like them so very excited about that and jazzing up my planner this year and next up whoa hold on. We need to back that train up girl. Okay. Here we go alright. So next up we have one of the petit planners, and this is in the July 2020 through December 2021, monthly planner, it’s just a nice buttery color with the classic mid-century circles from Erin Condren in the gold, foil and yeah.

So let’s take a peek at this. So the first page is, you know this book belongs to just like you normally start out and then we’ve got 20 20 into 20 21 in these smaller month of views, and then you know some boxes and then we’ve got. You know all of the months – and this is just a really really nice basic planner, especially if you’re just not super in a decorative planning, or maybe you want to plan like do a little bit of decorative stuff.

But you just want to keep track of stuff, and this is pretty lightweight fits pretty easily into most bags or purses or something you can keep in your car on your desk. So I really like that and then also in the back. There are tons of these pages that are in the dot grid. This is just so nice and at the very back we have the little folder as usual, and then we’ve got some stickers in the gold foil as well.

So you can jazz up your planner. However, you want to and then we have the beautiful plenty pouch. I love this thing, and this is so so cute, I think was it last year is the first year that they did a pattern to plan a pouch. Maybe not maybe I’m going a little insane. I don’t know anybody’s, but they have it for this year in the colorful, I’m not sure if it comes in any other colorways, I’m not sure if it comes in the neutral or not again.

This was all sent to me in PR, and things are not live on the website. Yet so I’m not really sure, but it is this beautiful leather like material, that’s textured on the back is just kind of this really deep, greenish blue color with the gold strap. This is like a little, you know, opening and that’s got gold hardware, oh yeah and inside. I actually put something inside already, because I could not fit these back in the box and we’ll talk about these right now.

But anyway I was going to say with this: you could put this over your planner cover on your planner. Also, you could do it with your petite planners as well. They’re almost the same size, the pouch is just slightly smaller, I feel like so I feel like if you like, walked into a meeting or something with this that’ll, be it’s like super cute anyway, but yeah. You can put it on your life planner as well.

So, very cute, you can put lots of different things in their pens stickers, anything it all goes in there all right. So these are an interchangeable, DIY, pen, kit, you can scribble design, write and highlight so there’s highlighters, medium tips and three fine tips and then there’s two barrels. So these are the little barrels and then you just like pop them in I don’t know how. Oh, I see huh gotcha, okay cool, so you just kind of snap them in and then turn them and then you know, like you’ve, got stuff, that’s good, I’m kind of cool.

I know that these came out in one of the surprise boxes and I haven’t gotten a surprise box in a long time you guys, like I’m totally slacking, but these are kind of a cool idea and they have lots of different tips again. These are just like the regular markers, this one’s a highlighter, this one’s, a fine tip so yeah, and I just thought that a really great storage option would be to put them in the planning back, because I don’t want to lose any of them, because I want To play with them later and I think to get through filming this article before I can play with that so anyway, I just thought that was really cute, they’re kind of a fun option and then the last item I have to show you today is going to Be the new sticker book – I am just jazzed about this.

These colors are so vibrant and so dang pretty I just can’t get over it and I’m a sucker for an Erin Condren sticker book like everybody else so yeah. But this is beautiful. The color saturation is just so deep and so pretty so yeah I’m just. I am digging on this for sure. So this has a bunch of the gold foil. We’ve got this one that has some of the cooler tones that are more of the rose, gold, foil and then the warmer tones on this side.

This is a different type of paper. I did take one off already and they like meld into your paper um. I don’t know what this paper is, but it’s not transparent, but it’s not like the normal paper either. I don’t know, but I’m kind of obsessed. I don’t know how to explain it. You guys just need to get one trust me, and then this one has a ton of functional stuff which is awesome and the gold foil, and then this one is transparent.

These are totally transparent stickers and if you want to use a pen with these, you can’t use a normal pen. You do have to use a permanent pen. So if you have like a Sharpie pen or like I really like this one, it’s the pilot ultrafine point permanent pen. The link will be down below for these. If you’re interested, they come in a bunch of colors. You just have to write on these and then wait a little bit and then you can, you know, put them in your planner but yeah since it’s like a glassy glossy sticker sheet it just you know you can’t use a regular pen with it so yeah and Then these ones are all the little circles and the silver foil love these.

These are in the transparent as well, but you don’t really need to write on them. They already have the things written down for you in the gold foil. It’s like to do me time. Hello weekend today, appointment all that so I’ll definitely use all of these, and then we’ve got some banners, which is great like weekend, vacation a bunch of other little things, and these are all in the rose gold foiled we’ve got some silver foil here in the flags And then some gold foil and some foxes and hearts, and then we’ve got some of these washi strips, which are always so pretty every year in the layers, and these ones have the rose, gold, foil and then we’ve got some more silver foil, and that is it All right now, so this is it.

Finding Planner Peace

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I just prep ahead and that’s just been working really well for me and how this whole planner piece thing works for my brain. I hope you guys enjoyed the article, please let me know down below what has really worked for you to find your own planner piece or find your own planners style. I would really really love to know.

Mileage Tracker Setup | 2019 Business Planner |#ECDeluxeMonthlyPlanner

First I’ll tell you about the business planner in a moment, so I’m going to be using this. This actually came with a planner that I got already, but it didn’t come with this specific planner. This one came with my Erin Condren life planner for 2019.

It has the woven, wonder, pattern on it, I’m going to use it because I’m going to be making a little chart and then this pin is the pilot. Ultrafine point permanent marker and I’m going to be using this on some of my Christian design stickers, which I’ll show you in just a moment and then also this Erin Condren, dual tip marker, which is why my finger is blue at the moment, because I just filmed Another article before and tried to clean up something and made him whatever um and then also I have this washy sample from my shop link is below as well as a little coupon code if you’re interested – and this is kind of like a transportation washi, I believe, Is what I ended up, calling it, and then I have this sheet from a coffee break planner that has like these little road stickers and then some little cars, which I think is awesome.

I’m also going to be using these two sticker sheets from chrissy and designs, and I will link her shop below as well as everything all the other sources that I’m using today, including the pins. And this is kad – 0, 0, 2, 3, 2. And then I’m almost out of this sheet, I always get like really excited when I finish a sheet, I’m not going to finish the sheet today, but I get very excited. I know some people feel really really sad when they finish a sheet, but I feel the complete opposite.

So this one is kad: 0, 0, 4, 8, 5 and then the planner that I am currently using for my business is an Erin Condren, deluxe monthly planner and I got the 12 I got. It only comes in a 12-month version. I’m trying to like get my words right. It only comes in a 12-month version, but I did get January through December and I got the maximum amount of notes pages possible and I believe it was a hundred and twenty.

Don’t quote me on that, but you could get a ton of notes pages. I will also leave links below to all the other things that I have set up in this plan. Basically, half the planner is notes pages and I have done a bunch of other tracking setup in those notes. Pages are ready, so, let’s get on to the article. So I’m going to start by using the washy and actually, let’s, let’s move some things around and make it a little bit easier for everybody to see make sure the whole class can see.

Oh, don’t zoom out, you got ta zoom in okay, perfect, alright! So this is like a little road scene and then I use this little bookmark from Chris or not Christian today, as well whoo all right start over again. I use this little bookmark from Erin Condren. It’s just one of those snap in ones there you go. I’m just kind of smoothing out the washi all right, and then I thought underneath that this little road, washi you’re, not washing about Road strips sticker from coffee break planner, would look really really cute and I think it’s about the right size, even though I I realized On the washi there on a road, but when I have things like arty in my arsenal, I love using them up.

It’s like one of my favorite things. Oh there’s like a little tail there we go, oh, that I feel like that. Just like really defines it a lot more. I like that a lot very cute, okay, so on to the tracking I am going to be putting in a few different things, I’m going to use oh darn it – maybe I won’t use these Bert Bert Bert. Actually, yes, I can still make it work. I was going to use the purple, but then there’s no purple in the washi.

I thought that there was a little bit of purple, but it’s more like a primary color situation, but there is there’s some blue. So I’m going to use this blue and then I’ll use some other colors here, so I’m going to put in date destination miles and then, like a total like a cumulative total at the end actually know, I’m suddenly used the same sheet, but just like at the Same type of sheet, but just a different one, if I want to use, I think I’m just going to use the yellows like something in this spectrum of the yellows, because I got that little ambulance right there, okay, so now I have them all written down.

So, let’s peel these a bad boys off I’m going to put the date on the left hand, side there. We go took a moment to peel off here and then we’ve got the destination, I’m just kind of centering it in the middle of the line, because I’m going to do a little something in a moment and then I’m going to take total and put that at The very very end can I just see how much space I have to work with here, I’m going to kind of hang, I’m going to hang this one over just a little bit because the miles are going to get you know bigger as the year goes on And then miles will just go right over here.

That is, crooked. Okay hold hold on all right, not crooked anymore. At least I don’t think so I mean you guys will tell me in the comments. I am sure what I think I’m going to do is I’m going to use another one of these strips cuz. You know if you have it, why not use it and I’m going to use this line as a guide for myself actually hold on. I keep messing everything up today. All right hold on I’m going to use.

Do this over one more time, just a little bit over and awesome. Think about coffee break planner stickers is, they are matte removable and I have removed stuff from like eight months ago with really like no issue, and it not. You know coming up on my paper or anything like that. The paper didn’t like rip off or anything like that, and I can still use the sticker, which is kind of cool. So I am going to make a little line on here.

So I’m going to be using my Erin Condren, dual tip marker and I open up the wrong side. We are going to use the fine point for this. All that we’re going to just put that up there for a moment. All right move this little guy over. I’m also going to use this sheet from Christian designs. It is the K ad is 0. 0 is 7 5. I’m going to be used this little yellow a sticker. That’s got some polka dots in there and just write mileage tracker on here.

All right, I’m just going to plop this up on the top there and I think I’m going to use 2 of these little blue cars. Also from that coffee break planner thing and then just put these two little blue cards on there. Cuz there’s a blue car here. You know you guys know. I, like my consistency and know my car is not blue. Oh my gosh, I’m! So sorry you were not in the frame. Oh I’m horrible! I’m sorry guys this whole time once in a while.

I should look up at the viewfinder I mean just once in a while, but clearly I am a failure, but now you can see what I was working on. Oh my gosh, I feel so stupid whoops. It up see. Oh well. I hope you guys could forgive me also. I just noticed this. I love this little blue car. I’m going to put this next to this little destination too cuz. You know cuteness and whatnot. Ok now I now I’m done after you guys didn’t see any of this stuff that I showed great.

This is fabulous alright, so I’m going to move this little guy down here, it’s just kind of off camera at the moment. Alright. So this is my mileage tracker for my business planner for 2019. If you guys track mileage, let me know how you do it like if you do it in a decorative way like this, I know, there’s like apps and stuff like that, that you can do on your phone, but if you track it in like a paper way, Let me know in the comments down below what you use.

Also, if you have any questions, let me know down below, I will link all the sources as well as my nail color. I get a lot of questions on my nails recently, so I will leave that in a link down below for you guys as well, if you, like, the article, make sure to give it a thumbs up, feel free to subscribe. If you’d like to join the fde family – and I will see you guys in the next one – 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 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.

Then Erin Condren. What com will end up? Sending you a couple of different emails.

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

Donation Tracking 2018 | #ECLifePlanner

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

Plan With Me | Alaska Back Planning | #ECLifePlanner

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Reunion Planner | Erin Condren Deluxe Monthly

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Well, that’s cute! I’ve never used one of these stickers before very cute. I think I think, all right, so that is it for this week. I hope you guys enjoyed the article. Sorry, it’s been so long since I’ve been online, but there are more articles to come actually filming a couple right after this. So you’ll see some more in your inbox this week.
