I ooh and aah over all the pretty planners out there. I need a planner (I hear my mom saying right now "Yes, you do!") But I just don't have the time to go all out, so I have a system where I only spend about 30 minutes at the beginning of each month getting the whole month ready to go.
I need it to be cute enough that I can stand looking at it, but don't want to spend a lot of time getting it there!
I've had a couple of emails lately asking if I keep a planner and how I set it up. I put together a quick video showing what I do at the beginning of each month.
I also show how to make this cute pocket I keep in the front to hold my To Do lists and sometimes my pens.
Like I said, I don't do a whole lot. Just make my To Do Lists and decorate a little with washi tape and maybe a stamp or two. Can you spy the little red butterflies? I even keep the same place keeper every month: my little black cat. I do change his ribbon to match the month's page colors. In the video, I'll show how easy it was to make him too!
Here's the video:
Even though I have a planner, I still forget things! Usually because I forgot to write it in my planner to start with.
Do you keep a planner? Do you have some suggestions to make it easy and functional? I would love to hear from you.
Have a lovely week (and if you have a planner, don't forget to write something down)!
