How I Use My 2016 Erin Condren Planner

I'm a planner nut. My husband even enjoys saying so. He likes to rub it in all the different planners I've tried and how much I've spent on planners over the years. He thinks I'm crazy, I think he's just doesn't get it.

  A few months ago when it was time to order my 2016 planner, I decided to go with an Erin Condren planner and I love it! I love the simple layout and the pretty colors. It took me a few different attempts to figure out how to use it best but I've finally figured out the best way for me.

Because I love it so much I decided to give a tour of my planner and show you how I'm using mine.

I've never used the yearly view in any planner before and I'm not sure why because I'm using it now and love it! I purchased some see through map dots which is awesome because I can mark out weekends or trips ahead of time and be able to see them well in advance.

  I haven't used this section yet and I'm still not sure what I'm going to do with it but it looks awesome and might be a perfect place to set up some kind of monthly goals. Right now I'm thinking the books I want to read each month.

  I'm using the monthly view to plan out my month. Drs appointments, library visits, yoga, school events and days off, it all goes here. Each week when I plan I reference here.

  It took me awhile to figure out how to plan out my weeks. I tried planning out morning, afternoon, and evening but that didn't last long. I used time blocking stickers with little success.

 Now I'm using each box to plan out Home, Blog, and Personal goals for each day. This works the best for me because I dislike scheduling out my days. Too type b personality. This way I have a list of 3 different categories I want to work on each day and I'm free to accomplish them as the day may go.

  I love these reminder stickers. There are several different ones for various events and they fit perfectly in the daily columns.

  The removable celebrate booklet is pretty awesome. Because it's an insert I'll be able to fill it out once and move it from planner to planner.
