Is it too soon to begin planning for my 2022 planner? Shall I go with tried and true or try something new? Do you know what you’re doing? As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been quite happy with my Erin Condren monthly planner. The selection and quality are exceptional. The only downside is that I like…

My 2021 Erin Condren Planner

Personalized Dayplanner

I fell in love with the Erin Condren (EC) planner in 2018 when I ordered my very first one. Because I like to switch things up, I went with Saint Belford (SB) planner in 2019, and then back to EC in 2020. In June of this year, I wrote a mid-year update and at that…

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…
