You may recall that I splurged a bit and purchased an Erin Condren Life Planner awhile back. These are kind of a trendy thing right now, and I had no idea if it would be worth the cost, considering I’m not a sorority girl, a teacher (they have a special lesson planner, too), or getting married – all very popular markets for this planner. But I have kept it up, and especially like finding the perfect supplies to make planning fun (more on that in another post!).
I went back to a paper planner, because I needed one spot to find all my important dates and lists. I’m keeping track of:
- bills and due dates
- assignments, quizzes, and tests for The Boy
- blog posts I want to write
- appointments at work, and when the boss will be out of town 😉
- evening activities like school events and date night
- budgeting and expense tracking for our trailer flip
- ideas for novels
- my christmas list
- prescription renewal reminders
I’d like to also include (but haven’t yet):
- meal planning
- shots I want to take and skills I want to practice – I got a new camera for Christmas!
- a real dashboard – mine (pictured below) is more of a home for unused or previously-used post-its and pre-cut washi tape
Here are a few shots to show you how I’m using it.
Wow, that is a fancy planner! I have the same style that I get each year at Staples. I couldn’t live without my planner…
