I present, my planning system(s)...
Here are a few shots in its current testing phase...
You can see that I wasn't quite willing to commit to it being my project binder, so I used stickies to write down my January goals & ideas.
This is a quick form I created (very basic & really quick) to keep notes on my crafting projects.
I am about 99% sure this is going to be more journal oriented than a project binder. No fear about losing my project binder, as I have a few of these "half" size binders laying around.
Next up is my daily planner. I have been trying to settle on a "real"/"regular"/"legit" planner and I have pretty much narrowed it down to a Franklin Covey (after endlessly researching Filofax). I am now waiting to see if they go on sale and also paying a few bills before I splurge on something that isn't necessarily needed right now.
I am using a Martha Stewart by Avery collection binder in the cherry red or just red. I believe the rings are the one inch size, which is good, not perfect, but works right now. I am using the Franklin Covey Blooms page on two days planner refill this year. I like the page on two days because I can have my to dos and appointments/schedule on one and have the other to journal the day's activities. It is working wonderfully.
I also picked up some of the Martha Stewart tabs/labels/stickies.
Here is a closer look at my month on two days view...
This shows my finance worksheet. I plan to put my existing bills, plus purchases made throughout the month that are "extra" (re: online spontaneous purchases). It doesn't show, but there is a Notes space at the bottom.
So that is what I have been hard at work on. I have spent a couple of weeks figuring out the "calendar" part and now I am ready to pull it all together and get the rest of it working for me.
What do you use to organize yourself and plan your life? Are you a paper person or a digital person? Hit the comments and let me know.
You can always request a specific type of post you would like to see. I am always looking for new things to show and give my readers what they want.
