Erin Condren Life Planner – April 25th – May 1st

Now that work has picked up I’m managing two planner, a life planner – My Erin Condren, and a work planner – a Lilly Pulitzer.  How many of you use multiple planners, or do you merge everything into one?

They both serve very different purposes, and right now I need that.  Perhaps eventually I will merge the two, but for now it is much easier to keep work and home separate.  Work is full of all the meetings and calls I need to keep straight, as well as where I need to be.  Currently I am working remotely, sometimes at home sometimes at other locations, so I need to keep it all straight.  The Erin Condren I keep updated with daily happenings, meal plans and personal to-do lists.

This weeks meal plan was:

Monday – Chicken Patties and Tater Tots (Guilty pleasure, I was at a CPR/First Aid class until 9pm and wasn’t coming home to cook…)

Tuesday – Meatloaf and Potatoes

Wednesday – Crock Pot chicken tacos

Thursday – Pasta and Pesto Sauce

Friday – Chicken Sausages and Sweet Potatoes

Home life vs. Work life…the struggle!

I don’t want my work planner to be full of washi tape, stamps and stickers, but a little flair and motivation here and there never hurts!

I was excited to see that my local Michaels is finally starting to carry some Happy Planner supplies.  I scored some great stickers on 40% clearance this weekend.  And I have already put them to use!

Does anyone else find that they have to actually schedule time to plan?  What is that nonsense!

Happy planning all!

Erin Condren Life Planner – February 22nd-28th

Hello!  Back from a short hiatus, lots of happenings going on around here!  I did my favorite kind of shopping this weekend, gift card and coupons in hand…spend $0 of my own money!  They BEST!  And I got all kinds of cute things at the dollar spot at Target:

Among my haul were Easter Stickers, stamps, 2 packs of Gel Pens, adorable little clothes pins and binder clips.  My favorite was this phrase it stamp set:

Comes with a blank ink pad and everything, target bonus!

I used my own stamp pads, but for $3 it was a total bargain!  Perfect for my Erin Condren planner.

Here is the blank weekly spread:

Blank Spread – February 22nd – Erin Condren Life Planner

Definitely loving the winter we have had, it was in the mid 50’s all weekend, and it’s not even March!  So I was channeling Spring for my layout again.  I started with some fun Teal Washi Tape from…yep, Target.  And then I used the Phrase Stamp set to add a few highlights, and then just added in a few fun springy stickers.

A little closeup because I really do love the Phrase Stamp so much, I’m already getting my $3 worth!  And I didn’t even have to spend any money thanks to gift cards!

And I added my new Gold Butterfly clip, such a simple but elegant touch.  I love it.

Ready to start the week off! – Erin Condren Life Planner

We are also so excited that we can finally see our Debt Snowball paying off!!  We made our final payment on the first loan we tackled this weekend.  It is an incredible feeling!  Check out the beginning of our journey here.  I will be updating again in a few weeks to share how the first two months have gone.

Well, we are gearing up for another busy busy week here.  Hope you all have a great one!

Erin Condren Life Planner – January 25th-31st

I can’t believe we are already into the last week of January!  Somehow this year is already managing to fly by.  Here is the weekly spread for this week in my Erin Condren Life Planner:

You can see that the pages crumpled a little bit from last week where I glued down some card stock.  Oh well, once I fill up the pages it really won’t matter much.

This week I used stickers from The Preppy Planner and stamps from Sandra Amelia.  The ink I used and other stickers came from Michaels.  Here is what it ended up looking like:

I love the bright greens which brighten up the snowy weather that has finally arrived here!  We only got about 6″ of snow, which really was a blessing.  We braved the weather to host a monthly Free Family Movie night at our church.  I was surprised at the turn out we had regardless of the snowy weather!  I brought along the adult coloring book and markers my sister gave me for Christmas, and it ended up being a decent snowy Saturday!

Nothing like a little adult coloring and markers for a snowy Saturday evening!

Back to the planner…we have a vet appointment for Cody tomorrow, I ended up using a combination of both The Preppy Planner’s sticker and Sandra Amelia’s stamp:

Still working on what our menu plan will look like!  I hope that for all of you who received snow stayed safe and warm!

Have a happy week!

Completed week at a Glance

On my weekly spread you could see a little bit of the bleed through from the markers last week.  So I knew I would need to use stickers or paper or something to cover that up.  I stayed with a similar color scheme as last week since January tends to be the teals.  For this week I used stickers from Michaels, Washi Tape and card stock from Target, Stamps from Sandra Amelia , and stickers from The Preppy Planner.

Sandra’s stamps were some of my favorite.  I used the dollar bills as a reminder of when I have bills due this week, but it would also be adorable as a payday reminder.  Unfortunately this week isn’t a pay week!

I also love her little grocery cart stamp, I mean come on!

The cutest little grocery cart stamp!

The “buy it” label is really a page flag that I cut and glued to the page.  It came from the dollar spot at Target.
