I am naturally creative and enjoy beautiful things, but I have painstakingly learned to be more organized.
I'm very picky about planners.
I have an iPhone- and use it daily to keep my calendar, contacts, emails, texts, and yes, I mainly blog from my phone these days.
I also keep one paper calendar on the desk in my kitchen. This is my family calendar where I write my daily To Do lists, easily keep track of my kid appointments, and plan my meals.
In past years I have purchased a MomAgenda, which I loved but was pricey. Target has cute planners. I used a Covey planner for years. I designed my own one year with printable pages and a cute 5x7 binder.
This year I found a planner I LOVE at Walmart for around $10.
It is a Blue Sky, 2014 weekly monthly dated planner.
I love the whole month page with a big page for monthly Do, Call, Buy.
I also love the one week of space for a daily to do list and a spot for notes.
This is honestly one of my favorite calendars ever.
I looked it up on Amazon and couldn't find the same one. Mine is 8.5x11.
It has tabbed monthly calendars.
And-- vertical weekly calendars.
(I really like the tall, side by side days better than the fat rectangle ones... I know it's dumb.)
Fat ones that most calendars have...
Hope you've found a system that you love! What planner do you use?
On our best nights, Todd and I take a few minutes to plan at night before bed. I LOVE having a partner even though we have different To Do lists.
Excited to plan next week!!
It feels good to start a new planner...
There is nothing like a new To Do list.
Ha! Here is my tomorrow...
Oh, I love a tomorrow with my kids back in school and a day full of possibility!
Just some gems from my morning pondering.
::To Dwindle- to gradually decrease.
Interesting to think of dwindling in unbelief as the opposite of continually pressing forward. If we aren't progressing, we are decreasing.
::quote I hung on my TV cabinet... "If we could follow the slogan that says, 'Turn off the TV and open a good book', we would do something of substance for future generations." President Gordon B. Hinckley
::quote I hung on my desk above my new calendar and never ending To Do list...
"You can't plow a field simply by turning it over in your mind." President Hinckley
"He who waits for roast duck to fly into mouth, will be waiting a long time."
(Just an old favorite of mine.)
"You are good! But it is not enough just to be good. You must be good for something. You must contribute good to the world. The world must be a better place for your presence. And the good that is in you must be spread to others." President Hinckley
Love those quotes!
Love that Walmart planner.
Life is good!!
