Just a Little Planspiration

Happy Friday, lovelies! Can you believe the week is practically over?! What’s even crazier is that this month is almost over – and that means that half of this year is over… Yikes!! You’re welcome for putting everything into perspective.
I wanted to stop in and share some planspiration with y’all… I went through a short bout of lack of motivation in my planning {similar to my lack of motivation in goal setting}, but I’ve found my groove again! I try to keep it fairly simple, but I like to “play” a bit too… I don’t make time to scrapbook or craft much these days, but decorating in my planner fills that crafting void! Plus I can claim to be organized in the process! *Wink!*

The inserts in these pictures can all be found in our shop… These vertical inserts are a newer addition. They’re similar to the Erin Condren Life Planner that I’ve written about, but they’re not spiral bound. I’ve been loving the simplicity and “plain-ness” of them because, while the ECLP is a nice planner, each month has a different color scheme. I like everything color coordinated, and I was restricted in my decorating each week. These are the solution to that little problem!

This was a first draft of my new two days per page {in vertical layout} for a personal size planner! I’m not currently using these inserts, but I wanted to share a quick picture since many of you use a personal size planner!

These are my week on one page with grid inserts… There isn’t a ton of room for planning each day, but there is extra room for notes, grocery lists, or doodling on the grid paper. I generally use these to keep track of scheduled activities {church, Hannah’s appointments, vacations, holidays, etc}. Because I carry my personal size planner with me {most of the time!}, I can reference it when I’m scheduling fellowship with a lady from church or an appointment for my little one.

Like I mentioned above, I’ve been using these new week on two page inserts in vertical layout to decorate… My little family stays pretty busy, but we don’t generally have a tight “time” schedule around our house. I use these to make lists and keep track of little tasks I hope to accomplish… Not everything is set in stone, and some things don’t get written down in this planner. It’s really more of a hobby than a dictator-type planner. Does that even make sense?!

I often get asked how I use two planners… Truth be told, I haven’t figured it out completely. I think getting organized or “planning” is an ever-changing thing, and depending on the season of life you’re in, my way might not work for you. Right now I’m using both a personal size and an A5 size planner.

I still like things matchy-matchy, so I’ve been coordinating my personal and A5 size planners… Here are some pictures of my last few weeks in my planners.

I didn’t take a picture of last week in both planners. I suppose I probably should – it’s kinda fun to see them together! Here are a couple of pictures of last week in my A5 size planner…

I hope these pictures have inspired you a bit in your organizing journey! Before you think I’m crazy for “playing” so much in my planner, let me say it’s a hobby… It’s like scrapbooking but helps me keep a *bit* more organized in the process. And the little planner-girl community is a fun one to be a part of! If you’ve got any questions, you can send me a message {it’s the best way to get an answer}! And if you like seeing posts like this, be sure to leave a comment below! I’d be happy to share some weekly spreads with you… Until next time, happy planning!
