Morning friends, and welcome to another edition of #Girltalk. I’ve really come to enjoy these little ‘chats’ we have on Fridays. What I love even more is hearing from you and getting your input on matters. Today I want to talk planners. I have discovered the joy of life planners on Pinterest and Instagram. I have discovered some gorgeous images of amazingly organized (and pretty ) planners. Clearly they slotted in some time for planner decorating, ’cause those suckers are gorgeous.
I am dying to get my hands on a super planner that can help me organize my crazy life. My current system is a terrible one! I have a notebook, a diary, a blog schedule, a lesson planner and a day planner- all going at the same time. Oh, and don’t forget the lists I make (and inevitably lose) on tiny scraps of paper. This madness has to stop. I have been lusting after a well-known American planner brand. I am still waiting on the email reply, but it looks like the cost of the planner and the shipping costs on top of that will amount to about a grand. Wow! For a planner?! It’s a pretty amazing looking one, but I am convinced that there must be something equally lovely (and a lot more affordable) available.
This is where I turn to you lovelies- What do you use to run your busy lives? Just a heads up, that even thought I share a calendar app with my hubby, and am pretty tech savvy, I am looking for the real deal here. A genuine, gorgeous, OTT paper, book format planner. Any suggestions?
I require a planner where I can
- schedule my life
- plan meals
- plan my lessons
- plan my blog schedule
- plan my ‘social’ life
- keep track of meetings, my travel schedule and deadlines
- general to-do’s
- that allows some space for jotting down down daily inspirations and thoughts
- some general writing space
- and general prettiness
Is it too much, yah think?
I am dying for one and cannot find the right product to spend my bucks on. I’m putting this one to you. Any advice?
