Things to Include in Your Planner


So even though it’s the year 2017, I’m still all about that paper planner lifestyle and I have been since I was very young and would make business cards with just my name and number on them with some random childish design, and waste all my mother’s ink. But hey I’ve come a long way, so now I’m only just wasting all my ink yay! Lol

But all jokes aside and to be honest, there’s just something so satisfying about making a list, and scratching/crossing/highlighting them off, I just always feel like I get more done when I have a real list in front of me.

Now don’t get me wrong I still use my google calendar app to sync up all my devices, I just pretty much only use it for medium or high priority things, but for everything else like (To Do’s, Trackers, Lists, Project Management, and Notes) I prefer paper. Because if my phone is always going off, I tend to swipe it and not really pay it any attention, and then I get nothing done. Which is not so good.

Now I’m going to share with you what I like to keep in my planner, and what I’m using. This also changes whenever I get the mood, as I don’t like looking at the same thing for months at a time. I also like to design my own inserts & stickers for my planners, and I’m actually working on designing my own planner to sell in the near future hopefully. Wish me luck!!!
