This past weekend, I decided to take my own advice and actually relax. I forgot to add one of my favorite hobbies when I talked about relaxing and unwinding. This hobby is decorating my Erin Condren Life Planner! Yeah, I know it sounds weird but if you search Pinterest there are TONS of planner girls like me. Decorating my planner and planning my weeks are so fun for me and lately, I have been neglecting my planner. This is most likely why my life has felt like it is in shambles.
To start my planning session this past weekend, I printed a monthly and weekly kit from DesignLovelyStudio. I tend to purchase printable stickers or make my own stickers and cut them with my Silhouette Portrait. This saves me time and money on shipping. Next, I like to put down all of the decorative stickers and the functional stickers that I use regularly. I do this before I write down anything to make sure that my week will be pretty and functional.
After using the stickers that I love, I begin to fill out the things that I need to do for the week and add additional stickers. When I make plans for the future, I write them on sticky notes and stick them on the date in my planner. This way, when I make it to that week I already know what is going on and I can still decorate without having plans (that may have changed) already written down. So I take my sticky notes and transfer the information to my weekly spread. This system works really well for me.
I like to look at my planner each night and check off the things that I have accomplished. I also add new things to the next day if I think of anything that needs to be done. One thing that I like to plan during the week is what I will clean each day. I don’t write down this information until the day before because sometimes one cleaning task will need two days to complete. When everything is filled in, I am ready to tackle the next day.
My planner of choice is the Erin Condren Life Planner. This planner is amazing! It has everything that I could ask for in a planner. The new planner allows for complete customization and has a lot of new features. While I am determined to completely fill my 2016 planner, I know exactly which option I will order for my 2017 life planner. I am going to order the neutral horizontal planner with the interchangeable covers. My favorite thing about Erin Condren Life Planners is that they have something for everyone.
