Wordless Wednesday: New Planner

As a start to my One Little Word for the year, I am going to focus on creating organization today.

Over the last month, I have realized that in order for my blog to grow, I need to be more organized.

Between family time, household responsibilities, my blog and my Etsy shop, I realized that I needed to be more productive and deliberate with my time and in order to do that I need to do a bit more planning.

I decided to use some of the money I had made from my Etsy shop to buy myself a beautiful 2013 planner!  I had been eyeing the Plum Paper Designs planners on Etsy for a little while but wasn't sure if I really wanted to spend that much on a planner when I could easily get a cheaper one at my local Staples.  I am so glad that I decided to go ahead and get one though, it is beautiful and I am so excited to use it over the next year!

This planner is set up with a laminated tab for each month and each month starts with a notes page followed by a two page monthly spread.  After the month overview, there is a two page spread for each week of the month.  I love that on the weekly pages, the days are broken up into morning, afternoon and evening.  Since I am a stay-at-home mom, my days are not planned out by the hour but instead by blocks of time, so this is perfect!  There is plenty of space to write what I need to write in each of those time slots and there is even a small checklist at the end of each day.  On the left hand side of the page is a weekly checklist, along with a small monthly view.  The rest of the planner is rounded out with a 2013 calendar at the beginning and a 2014 calendar at the end.  Right before the 2014 calendar is one page that holds information for 16 contacts.  The very last thing in this planner is a small "for keeps" pocket for any loose papers or business cards you might have.

I could not be happier with my purchase and hope that it continues to keep me on track and more organized!

*I was in no way compensated for this post, I just love my new planner!
