Ya'll, I'm a hot mess. My life since coming back to work from my maternity leave has been nothing short of forgetting one thing after another. I needed to get my behind in gear. I needed something to save my days from anxiety and procrastination.
I tried many different calendars from different places. There was a DARLING little notebook in the Target dollar spot. I bought all of the accessories for it: paperclips, binder clips, pencils, pens, paper pads. But every time my work bag took a tumble in the car, they would all come flying out. The metal binder rings would always open and spill everywhere.
Then something magical happened. I ran across an ad on Facebook for 50% off the Erin Condren Life Planner. Now I know they were on sale because it was the middle of April. But it was the middle of April and I still didn't have my life together.
The Life Planner was durable, bound, and beautiful. I decided to take the plunge.
I got my planner a week later and it was ripped open immediately. HOW BEAUTIFUL IT WAS! I had chosen my planner cover to have pictures of our new little family. I immediately got to work adding in my summer PD classes, dr appointments for my little Lamb, vacations (San Francisco in June...YAY!) and filled in what I know about next school year.
The planner came with stickers to help organize the planner. I also ordered some extras...like photo stickers! I use them to track my favorite football team's (Go Ducks! Go Broncos!) schedule and family member's birthdays. There is even a laminated bookmark that is moveable week by week that will help you plan meals (a top 3 reason for arguments in my house...what's for dinner and who's gonna cook it!).
I cannot wait to dive deeper with my Life Planner. It's small enough to fit in my purses and small enough to not be too bulky or heavy.
Life Planners for the new year come out in June! Check them out!!!
