Near the end of August, I caved and bought an Erin Condren planner after looking through my mom’s. I really liked how each day had different sections, and ever since I started using it, I’ve become more organized and efficient with my day-to-day tasks. I’ve had a bunch of people ask me how I use my planner, so I though it would be a good idea to detail everything in a post.
Here’s what a full layout for my week looks like. I break each day up into four categories: Today, To Do, Blog/Youtube, and Little Things. My sidebar is broken down into my daily routine + purchases for the week, I have a “hydrate” counter and a pill reminder in each of my “Today” boxes, and there’s a section at the bottom of each day where I write a little reminder about my favorite tv show for the night.
In my “Today” boxes, I usually write any deadlines or projects that are due, or what I would like to focus on for the day. My “To Do” boxes are pretty self-explanatory (as is the “Blog” section), and the “Little Things” boxes are where I write down at least 1 good thing from the day.
I used to collect stickers (mostly Lisa Frank) when I was a little, and this new hobby has definitely reignited that love. I have a few shops that I love checking out for cute stickers and wash tapes:
