Hi, my name is Christine and I’m an plan-a-holic. *Hi Christine* I never met a spreadsheet I didn’t like. I may-or-may-not have once made a written timeline to plan out my daily shower routine. And if you’ve ever planned a trip with me, you know I have elaborate schedules for every day. It may sound like torture to some people, but for me it is pure bliss.
Lately, I’ve been trying to get more organized as my life becomes busier. I wanted a tool that allows me to plan all the things I need to plan during the week – my days, my meals, and my blogs. After fervent Google searching, I couldn’t find anything that worked. Most of the tools available are geared towards mummies, families, or diets – and I have none of those! So, as the resourceful girl I am, I made my own.
With a little research and a lot of design, I created three weekly printable planners – this week, meal planning, and on the blog. Each has its own special layouts, areas for notes, and versatile writing space. I wanted something to write my thoughts, ideas, and tasks on without feeling like I was ruining my pretty Kate Spade planner. I still use my planner to record dates, appointments, and birthdays but these weekly organization tools help remind me of tasks and to-dos.
My favorite printable planner has to be on the blog. I created space for two blog posts a day, since I personally don’t have more than that. I also created icons for social media that I can check off when I’ve scheduled Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest posts. I can set goals for myself, make notes, and jot down ideas and reminders. Once a week, I start fresh with new inspirations to share on my planner. These planners stay on my desk next to my laptop. I know I’m a little bit biased, but I think they are wonderful for my refined lifestyle. Since it is only Monday as I’m writing this, they don’t look too full – but by Friday they’ll be covered in check marks, notes, ideas, and inspiration! I love these so much that I am obviously sharing them with you lovely people! Click the picture below to get yours:
