Get It Together!

Get It Together!

erin condren

Having a full time job (9-5), going to grad school at night (6-9) and juggling two different blogs can be. . .well, the word insane comes to mind. At any given time, my mind will be running in three different veins; work, school, blog. There are times when I feel like a cartoon character whose head inevitably pops off, followed by a stream of smoke.

I started looking for planners about a year ago and found some decent ones here and there but never really found one that could fully encompass all the craziness happening in my life. When the Erin Condren LifePlanner™ team first reached out to me, it was almost like a light beaming down from heaven, guiding light to a disorganized me.

Honestly, for how much I scour the internet, I wasn’t aware that you could make fully customized planners. I mean, I’m sure if I really researched it, I would have known, but it just didn’t occur to me. But with Erin Condren™ , you can create a fully customized planner. If you want, you can do a weekly or monthly or daily sheet. Or even a mixture of both. You can choose from different planner covers or even upload your own.

I chose a daily planner. I almost chose a weekly calendar, but I already previously owned a weekly calendar and ended up never writing in it. I’m so disorganized, yet OCD that a weekly calendar was wasted on me. I’m the type that needs to know, by the hour, where I need to be. Because my schedule is completely insane, I need to know that at 6:30, I’m going to be at this location or that on Monday from 8:00AM-8:30AM, I’ll be doing this activity. It keeps me regulated and perfectly on time.

Okay, that’s just one of the things I liked about the calendar. The other? OH MAN, all the fun extras! I’m talking, different stickers or post it’s or embellishments. They have Happy Birthday stickers or money stickers, any sticker you could possibly want. They have stickers themed in feminine patterns or bright patterns. I love that the add on’s aren’t just about scheduling your day (which can be tedious) but also adds joy and fun to doing it, making it something you look forward to. I’ve already added fun emoji stickers to all my friends birthdays or drink stickers to when I’m meeting friends for happy hour. It gives you something to look forward to and a little bit of joy when you add something new to your calendar.

    These are some of the most adorable planners and stationery I’ve ever seen and I’ve been seeing them everywhere! They would inspire my creativity, for sure! I don’t see how you juggle that much stuff at once; I used to juggle 2 jobs and school, plus blogging and it was insane. Definitely needed a planner!

    Oh my God, that must be tough, I have quite the same situation and sometimes I’m desperate! I was thinking to buy a planner as my simple notebook is not enough for planning. Thank you for the advise and I truly love a design of planner and calendar, so girlish and beautiful

  • You are really doing a great job for managing everything! Planning is very important for blog, I was always writing my plans, but I figured out that making digital editorial calendar works better for me.

    Btw, I loved all of the stationery in here!

  • I love stuff to organise things well, especially when they look cute and yours definitely do!
    Thanks for the advise babe. XO Charissa || http://www.ladygoldapple.com ||

  • I don’t know how you manage to fit everything in! I guess this is the little secret and lots of planning. It is so hard to find the right planners, but I am with you on this, if I have it written down, it stops something from repeating in my mind and allows me to be more focused.

    I love planners, and hate finding such a cute ones because there is no need for me to have 5 different planners lol

  • kioandlew

    Planner is really helpful as it helps you organize and track of all the things you have to do everyday. It also serves like a diary and a reminder. Been collecting Starbucks’s Planner every year.
