My 2019 Planner Lineup

I love pen and paper, I grew up handwriting everything. There’s just something about writing with a pen on paper, unless you also grew up handwriting everything, I think you’ll understand what I’m saying. It took me a while to figure out what planners worked for me. I tried cramming everything into one planner but that didn’t last to long and things became cramped and messy. I have also tried to break everything thing down but i don’t like the idea of having separate planners all over.

Anyways my planner line up is very simple for 2019. I will have 6 planners total. But 3 will be all on 1 set of discs. I am trying what the planner community is calling, transformer planner. So I will have my main planner, journal and a moon journal all together on a set of discs, I will keep 3 months at time for each planner in this new system. So every three months I will replace the months out. Where as my social media and on the go planner are by themselves with the whole 12 months. Then we have my memory planner.

I feel this fixes my problem of wanting different planners for different areas but not so many planners, if that makes sense. Otherwise i have planners everywhere and I don’t like that, it makes me feel unorganized and everywhere. I also put the transformer planner on extender rings because of its chunkiness, even through I had such a hard time deciding between the black, white or clear blue discs that the planners came with originally . At first I did decide on the white that came with the Enjoy all things planner, but the plastic discs tend to break and the pages don’t move as smoothly when it gets chunky.

Main Squeeze

Enjoy All the Things Horizontal Classic is my main planner with everything in it, bills, to do lists, food shopping, meal planning, doctor appointments, budgeting, work, etc. It is also a themed planner, which I just love. This one is is adorable alone with out any stickers but I love decorating this planner. I have so much fun with it.

Journal

Modern Chic Horizontal Classic is more or less my place to write down thoughts. I also write down things might have happened that day, affirmations or quotes from books I’m reading. I try to write in it everyday, even if it is something small. This was the first horizontal planner I bought and I have not looked back. I love horizontal planning. I decorate with a few stickers but just enough for a little something since it is a pretty minimal and neutral layout.

Moon Journal

Agate Vertical Classic is used for my tarot readings and anything Woo Woo. This is my only vertical planner and it works out for the type of cards I pull daily. I pull a tarot card, oracle card and an affirmation card for each day, there are three boxes for each day. So this works great for this. I don’t normally decorate this one at all since I like to keep this one simple.

On the go

Keep Bright and Beautiful Mini will be on the go planner, just something that I can throw in my bag if I need to. I will mainly keep this one in my bag or purse. Sometime I decorate it and sometimes I don’t. Most of the time I add a few check lists and a quote or two. Thats normally it with this planner since its mainly for quickly writing down something.

Social Media

 Miss Maker Mini is what I use for my social media planner. I keep track of Bloggingbeesrt, my twitter and blog posts. I feel it is the the perfect size for what I need it for, just enough white space and its horizontal. I find I can plan out better this way. I also don’t decorate this one to much since I like to keep this one simple and clean.

Memory Keeping

Life is an amazing adventure is for Memory Keeping. I tried it in October and hoping to pick it back up again for 2019.

So that it. That’s my line up for 2019. It’s simple enough and seems to be working well for the last few months of testing it out before the new year. I am really excited to see how the transformer method works for me. I would love to see what planner lineup you have.

Social Media Planner

For the last year my Social Media Planner has been very helpful with planning out blog posts, Etsy, Twitter- personal account and RT Accounts and Facebook. I have really enjoyed my Marble Happy Planner but sadly once June is over I will be starting in a new planner. I am so excited to start in my new planner, I will most likely have a blog post up when that time comes.

I could not pass up this cover, I love it. The colors and the saying is one of my favorites. This cover is awesome, it snaps, has pockets and a pen loop.

Blog

In my planner I have a list of blog topics that I  would like to write about. This helps me brain storm on ideas and I can keep track of what topics  I have blogged about or ones I would like to. Once I move into my new planner I may rewrite this list out and get rid of ideas or add new ones.

At the beginning of  every month I write down the topics that I think or will like to write about for that month. I might not get through the whole list, it might only be 4-8 topics for that month but it gives me an idea if I feel stuck or not sure what to write about. Or I can bounce back and forth between blog posts if I feel stuck as I write.

In the first two rows I write out what I need to do for blog post I’m working on for that week. Here I took pictures before I planned out the week. Once I move into the new planner I am thinking of changing the layout of how I do my weekly’s and even thinking of combining my social media and my wellness planner since I feel like I have too much space in both planners. I have the next six months or so to decide if I am going to do this, since my wellness planner goes until December.

Etsy, Twitter & Facebook

In the last box I make reminders to schedule thread topics for my Twitter RT account and Facebook Groups. This is also how I keep track what days are what threads and also to set up my scheduled blog tweets. I will note when upcoming  relistings are due for my esty or any projects that I am working on.

I hope you enjoyed reading about my social media planner.

Blog Post Ideas – Organising

I know spring began in March.  It is now May, and as I write this at 8:45 in the morning with 65 degree weather with a possible high of 83 and all of my windows open. Here in south-eastern Wisconsin it’s finally feels and looks like spring. With that I finally feel like spring cleaning and organising my home and life. Just kidding about my life, its pretty organized. But I do have projects that I would like to start, like going through my clothes, cleaning up the closets that I dumped random items in when we moved in December or organise our storage bin in our apartment again because of all the random items I dumped in there.  I can only blame my self for that, but in my defense moving is very tiring.

As I was thinking of projects that need to get done,  I realised this would be a great blog post to do. So I made a list of different ways you organize.
