Is anyone else obsessed with using pretty planners?
I love, love, LOVE my Erin Condren Hourly Rose Gold Planner. I’m definitely an INFJ (Introverted Intuitive Feeling Judging). Doug makes fun of me because I am a “lister” and am constantly creating lists of things to do, accomplish, read, and complete by a date. It helps me stay on-task and focused at my target!
My mother has the neatest handwriting, my sister’s being a close second. I have rpacticed getting better at my everyday penmanship, but have settled on it being scrawling and half-cursive because it truly represents my thought process: kind of crazy and messy. Amiright?
My planner obsession started with stickers, which I have collected at different periods of my life all the way down to being 8 years old and having a Lisa Frank sticker book. Gotta love those bright rainbow colors.
Now, after phasing in bullet journals, I have invested in my Erin Condren Hourly Life Planner in Rose Gold in January. I have decided that I LOVE it. Although much of my everyday planning occurs using GAFE tools (the Google Calendar) so my supervisor can see where I’m at and what I am working on each day. A flexible schedule so that I can help teachers has been a total blessing this academic year. As Virginia starts SOLs, the need for a planner with a concrete set of what I am planning each day helps so that I am not disturbing test-takers in the library by going in and out of my office all day! Each Sunday night, I sit down at my computer and determine my to do list and events that I have mapped out for the week and insert each one in an hourly spot in my EC LifePlanner!
I have curated a list of photos of some great layouts that I have found on Pinterest! I have shared these pins on Pinterest. Check out my board here to see all sources!
