Hi y’all! Hope everyone had a relaxing break, I know I sure did! Now it is back to grind of school, cheer (which includes Nationals), and of course blogging! My new goal for the new year…to post more! I love to write and take pictures for y’all to see and my hope is that this year I can do just that!
To begin the year off, what is better than an organization post about this planner that I am obsessed with! Previously I have used a Lily Planner and have loved them, however I have been finding with my schedule I needed something with a little more room to write. After reading Emily Ley’s book Grace Not Perfection (highly suggest), I wanted to indulge in one of her Simplified Planners. She has so many wonderful patterns, however my favorite is the pink with the gold polka-dots.
I love that there is a calendar view, and for each individual day there is a schedule as well as a To Do list. It makes it so much easier to get organized for the week ahead and for me to see what I am up to for that particular week.
As of now I have a lot of purple (aka all the cheer stuff) marked on my calendar that I have going on this month! Once the semester starts going I will have lots of other colors that represent my classes and sorority. I highly suggest color coding in that you can instantly recognize what class pertains to that particular assignment. Also cross off what you get accomplished, it is always a good feeling to get everything done on your “To Do” list!
In this particular planner, I love that each day there is a quote that is inspiring. With all the rush that goes on in a day of a(n) college student/athlete/sorority girl/blogger, (have I mentioned I like to stay busy) it allows me to look back and see how the quote can pertain to my particular life.
All in all with a New Year in order, a New planner was a necessity!!!
Hope everyone has a great day!
