Since I’ve spent two weeks talking about my planner and stickers and all that nonsense, I thought I’d actually share it and how I have it set up.
After the cover I have my daily page which helps me stay on task and make sure I get the household things done that I want to get done. On the back of that sheet is my weekly cleaning schedule/checklist. I need to do some editing on that because I’m noticing my weeks aren’t breaking down quite how I have them on this sheet, but for now I’m making it work. (To make these, I purchased a template on etsy and adjusted them in Adobe Elements. I printed it out and laminated it so I could check things off with a dry erase marker. They are attached to the spiral with sticky do-dads that you can order from Erin Condren. In my old planner I used this tutorial so I didn’t have to buy anything but it was super fiddly.)
The next series of sheets are ones I made using the “Notes” section in the back of the planner.
I made a quick and dirty “spreadsheet” for those monthly jobs that I want to accomplish but always seem to forget about on one page and my goals for 2015 on another.
In the back, I laminated and sticky do-dadded (very technical term) my reading challenge list so that I always knew where it was (I lose things) and also so I could have it for handy reference when I was at the library or bookstore. Behind that is a folder (with the included perpetual calendar insert for birthdays/special dates).
Finally, we have the other side of the folder with more EC stickers and a zipping plastic pouch with my stickers so they aren’t floating around everywhere.
**This planner was purchased fully out of my own pocket and links are NOT affiliate links. I just wanted to share my opinion and set up.**

I am not a planner user in any form. I use my work calendar to track all my appointments. I have a list app on my phone that I use for groceries. I write weekly meals on a chalkboard in the kitchen. Every morning I ask my kids: "Where do you need to be today and when?" It's not a perfect system. Sometimes I am surprised by things. Sometimes things get dropped. But I have never seemed to be able to use a planner effectively.
Yours, however, is adorable. I want to be the kind of person who would have and keep and use such a planner. Alas, I am not. 🙂
