2020 Planners

I have decided on two types of planners for 2020. One is the Erin Condren and the other is Hobonichi Techo which were both used in 2018. You can go here to see what I used in 2019. I tend to do Erin Condren for future planning and day-to-day appointments and the Hobonichi for tracking…

My New Bullet Journal

A few years ago I tried bullet journaling. It didn’t last long. I liked it but hadn’t invested the time and effort fully engage with the process. Part of the problem may have been the spiral-bound, hardcover notebook I was using. It was plain, uninspiring and had a hodgepodge of lists and other remnants of…

PlannerCon was amazing! I met so many fabulous people and wish I had taken more pictures. I fell in love with these journals made by October Lurty, owner of Television Train Wreck on Etsy. As I write this, I don’t see much selection in her Etsy store, but she did say she does a lot…

In a few days I’ll be attending my second PlannerCon in San Francisco. I went last year for the first time and had an amazing weekend. The event is packed with vendors, speakers, workshops, swaps, shopping, giveaways, connecting with other Planner-aholics, getting ideas, being inspired, learning new things. Some of the many vendors include: Carpe…

2019 Saint Belford Planner

Part of the charm and excitement of planning a new year is the process of selecting a new planner (or planners, as the case may be). This year I’m trying my first Saint Belford. This planner comes from Australia and I first heard about it on Chris Guillebeau’s Side Hustle podcast, episode 683. I ordered…

Planner Obsession

As a planner-aholic, I admit that I have a problem limiting myself to one planner. My daily planner for appointments and organization is the lovely Erin Condren planner. The rose gold coil is my favorite. Last year (2017) I had gotten the platinum coil. I must admit when I saw my first EC planner in…

My New Planner for 2018-19

I discovered this lovely Beauty Magic Wonder Planner by Katie Daisy on Amazon. The illustrations are amazing and I absolutely love the artwork on the black background. The size is slightly smaller (5×7) than my current Erin Condren planner, and it doesn’t have the solid rose-gold coil binding that I love on my EC Planner.…

The Daily Greatness Journal Review

I had heard about the Daily Greatness Journal: A Practical Guide for Consciously Creating Your Days for a while, but couldn’t justify the cost of $49.95. Last November I decided to look at it as an investment in self-development and I made the purchase. There is a lot of reading at the beginning of the…

My First Hobonichi Original

I love planners and every year I have more than I can possibly use, although I do try to use them all. I’ve decided to start reviewing them and sharing what I like, what works for me as well as what I’m not so fond of – plannerwise. This versatile day planner can be used…

Planner Con 2018 in San Francisco

I attended the 2nd Annual Planner Con event at the Hyatt Regency in San Francisco in early March. This event had all kinds of heavenly planner goodness- planners, journals, stickers, stamps, cutouts, bands, charms, pens, markers and so much more! I had not heard of Planner Con before and only happened upon it through some…
