With the new year coming up I am setting my sights on some goals. Not resolutions. I hate resolutions. Goals. One of them is to improve my productivity and stay more organized. I live and breathe by my wall calendar. But the problem is, the hubby doesn’t use it enough and when I am out and about and plans get made I never know what is going on. I have tried using the calendar functions on both my phone and my iTouch, but it just isn’t working for me. So I decided that 2011 was going to be the year of the planner. That’s right. A good, old fashioned, pen and paper planner.
But old fashioned doesn’t mean that it can’t be super cute and fun right?
- Easily fits in my purse. I do carry a big purse, but it is a really nice size.
- STICKERS!! Oh yeah, I already said that.
- A little pocket in front I throw receipts and coupons in
- To do lists and grocery lists that tear off
My absolute favorite part is the way the inside is laid out.
I am not sure if you can tell what is going on by the pictures, but each family member gets their own line. With a bunch of space on top just for mom. It helps me more easily sort out what is going on and is how my wall calendar is set up at home so I am used to this system. In fact, Orange Circle Studio has a wall calendar to match my planner with even more stickers. Next year I am TOTALLY coordinating my calendars.
They seriously have a ton of great wall calendars, desk calendars and planners to start your year off right. This tear off desk calendar looks HILARIOUS. They also have some gorgeous journals that I might just need to get to jot down my bloggy inspirations when they come to me. Don’t want to miss something brilliant because I have nothing to write in!
