Using a Planner


 I am a planner addict. There I have said it. I have a drawer filled with as much stationary as you can imagine. Before Target Dollar Spot there was the Dollar Store which ones…ALL of them. Hobby Lobby, Michaels and Joann’s well they were enabling to say the least.

I started using a planner back in high school and since then I have been using one. Over the years planners have evolved there are many different options that can fit any budget. They come in different sizes: pocket (3.5″x6″), compact (4.25″x6.75″), classic (5.5″x8.5″), monarch (8″x11″). As well as in different layouts: daily, weekly, and monthly. There is a planner for everything and everyone: prayer, meal plans, work, academic, moms, athletes, and the everyday folk.

There are so many places to meet your planning needs:

Now, Etsy has a variety of shops that are a dream come true for all planner nerds. Target Dollar Spot always has cute stationary finds for $1-$3.

Last year I used a compact planner which was cozy, it had just enough space to write the necessary. Yet this year I thought I was due for an upgrade from a Franklin white, compact planner  to Franklin Planner’s new collection ‘Planner Love’ the classic–I wanted to have extra room to write amply.

Here’s the why you should plan part of this post.

#1. Take some stress off of your shoulders and write it down.

#2. Lay it out. Simple as that.

#3. Don’t miss out on important dates. Write ’em down.

#4. Personalize it. It will keep you motivated and in check with whatever is happening.

#5. So many possibilities. So. many. Like I said there’s a planner for everything give it a try! It’s a perfect way to start the year.

#6. Staying organized and sane!

#7. Never missing an episode of your favorite real time sorry Hulu.

#8. Never missing a birthday!

#9. Actually being able to use pen and paper.

#10. Decorating it. It’s an art. 🙂
