Planner World

Last year was the first year I used a homemade planner – a ridiculous, 86-page monster that I designed in Photoshop and printed on card stock. It was the most glorious thing I think I have ever created. ;) From now on, I believe I’ll be forced to make one every year, because I loved it way more than any other planner I’ve ever had. This year, however, the obsession has grown. My 2016 planner has a whopping 98 pages, and I created a companion notebook with more planning pages to go along with it. The nice man who binds my books at Staples definitely thinks I’m insane. (I hope you type-A list-makers are virtually fist-bumping me though.)

First up – the planner. I have yet to fall out of love with all things nautical.

Quick side note – I apologize that these pictures are mildly terrible. I was pressed for time. I know, I’m a photographer, but you’ll get the idea.

To keep you from scrolling for three years, I won’t show you every page, but here are the highlights!

Papermate pens found here. I’m obsessed with them.

The second book I made is basically all the stuff that I would have put in the back of the planner if the binding machine at Staples was bigger. I think I like having a second book though, and I most likely will make next year’s books separate – one strictly calendar dates and the other all lists / extra pages.

I’m trying out “mission boards” this year. So far, I’m a fan! It helps give a framing to each month.

These handy little divider tabs are awesome and can be found here.

These “today’s plan” pages are also a new thing I’m trying. I often write quick schedules on a sticky note or in a regular spiral notebook if I want to put down more specifics that won’t all fit in my planner, but I’m going to try to use these now to keep everything together. I don’t use one every day – just for the days that I have an excessive amount of things to sort out by writing down. ;)

I’ve never been a huge meal planner…mostly because it takes me entirely too long to decide what I want to eat, and I change my mind 12 times a day. I didn’t print too many of these because our schedules aren’t always exact, but I know they’ll be really helpful for grocery shopping on dieting days!

I’d love to hear any suggestions you all might have for making next year’s books even better. :)

Happy Wednesday, loves!
