Surprise surprise friends, we’re only 4 months in and I’ve already switched up my planning system. At the beginning of the year I shared my 2017 planner setup and how in love with it I was. While that system was an A+ choice, I ended up switching things up as my needs changed.
That change also made me realize that one of my favorite things about planning is the ability to change my setup as my needs and my daily life changes. For that reason, I don’t really consider myself one of those people searching for “planner peace” because I know my planning system will always be evolving.
Main Planner – My main planner is an Erin Condren Deluxe Monthly Planner. Big surprise there, right? Y’all have heard me talk about EC Life Planners so many times. It’s no surprise to me that I always end up back here. I’ve been using EC Life Planners consistently since 2012 and they just seem to work for me. Since I don’t have a ton of day-specific things that need to be done, I use the monthly spread to track doctor’s appointments, bills, and special days. Then, the notes pages are perfect to keep track of my ongoing to-do lists! (You can get $10 off your first Erin Condren purchase here, plus dated calendars and planners are 50% off right now!!)
Secondary Planner – I’m also using a personal size Filofax planner with inserts from Julie of Plan2Create and also from Peanuts Planner Co. This planner is used for on-the-go and for tracking purposes. I do very little planning in this planner and mainly use it for keeping track of creative team projects, tracking stats, my editorial calendar, etc.
I would love to know what your planning system is for 2017! Let’s chat about it in the comments below.
