So I've joined (re-joined) the planner nation. since i've had a smart phone, ive soley used my phone and outlook calendar for all my appointments, and i still do (seriously love the travel time feature in my iPhone, especially for Notary appointments).
Back in the day i had two daytimers, my medium binder one for my desktop and my little notebook one that was in my purse..it was perfect for travelling at a moments notice, I had my passport and my needle detector card in the pocket, that if i had to visit a factory, i was ready.
Then came the smart phone...the medium planner got put in the closet, then a box when i moved, and unless i get lucky when purging my storage unit in my garage this weekend, donated a while back. My pocket daytimer, locked in a filing cabinet with my passport, which probably sadly hasnt been used since.
And then the planner craze started....and it just appealed to every hoarding part of me, the stamps, the stickers, paper...the to do lists...i could go on and on. I debated the Erin Condren Life planner...debated and debated...and decided to jump in slowly with Lilly Pulitzer instead. I love my Lilly..i am a Lilly girl..but she doesnt really fulfill my planner needs...after 2015..the Lilly planner is dead to me (i think the Jumbo size , would probably better suit my purpose..but i need to be able to at least carry this in my purse, and that would be too large.
I did print out some planner pages, mostly for meeting details, and punch them with my zutter bind it all and put them in the week they occurred...i just did them on the black/white laser printer at work and decorated with washi, but I'd truly like a planner with regular note taking areas. I realize that it could get bulky, but with a binder system, i know i can take them out as well.
Sometimes I feel (like some of my foray's into direct sales), I dont have the super busy life for the planners of today, I don't have kids, I use it to note down meetings at work (sometimes), life appointments (most) and notary appointments (almost always..but again mainly using the iPhone for the travel time feature too). My menu planning consists of making freezer meals into one person lunch/dinner portions. I think maybe when my work load balances a bit, and i can get back to regular posting of crafty stuff, i would utilize a bit more for scheduling blog posts etc.
So, long story, long...why I am taking this challenge..that whole work life balance thing, I havent been scrapping that much (for my regular customers, or more importantly myself). While there's not a lot of pictures per se...at least this will give a snapshot of my life this month...and actually it's already destined to be a great one on a lot of fronts, so I'm super excited.
