Planner Challenge – Day 12 | Checklists

This might be my favorite day of the entire challenge! I love a good checklist. I recently read that writing down something and subsequently crossing it off actually releases endorphins — yes! So those of you (us!) who like to write down things we’ve completed just so we can cross them off: We are not […]

Top iPhone Apps to Simplify Your Life

I don’t know about you, but the one thing that goes with me everywhere (besides a little one or two) is my iPhone. I use it for practically everything and I have a handful of apps that help keep me organized and simplify my life. And it’s your lucky day because I’m going to share […]

Planner Challenge – Day 11 | Multi-Day Events

Today’s prompt in the 2015 Planning Challenge is to write in any known multi-day events. First, define what a multi-day event is. I know, sounds simple, but it could mean any number of things and what’s most important is that you are consistent in your planner so that you know what things mean as the […]

Planner Challenge – Day 10 | Key Dates

Today’s planner challenge prompt is to add key dates to our planner. First things first, how do you define what constitutes key dates?

Planner Challenge – Day 7 | Weekly Spread

Today we are talking weekly spreads — also known as my default. If there’s a section of my planner that I have open at all times, it’s my current weekly spread. There are so many key pieces of information I keep on my weekly spread that it makes sense for me to have it open […]

Planner Challenge – Day 6 | Daily Page

When I started putting together this challenge, I tried to think outside the box–outside what I normally use and to what many people might use in their day-to-day planner. This concept of a daily page is one that I haven’t used in years. I use a daily page for work {via Outlook} but for personal use, […]

Planner Challenge – Day 2 | Intro Page

I have no idea what happened, but my Day 2 post somehow disappeared a couple days after it was originally published, so this is my attempt to recreate it! My apologies that these posts are now out of order, but I wanted to make sure we had everything we needed here on the good ole […]
