Planner Pad



Happy Tuesday, my dears. How's the week been treating you so far?

I am
super excited because my Planner Pad is due to arrive today!  I first heard about the Planner Pad from Kimberly Wilson, and since that time have heard many more of you sing its praises.  I finally decided that I need to see what all the hype is about.  From what I've read, it sounds like the format helps you to not only organize, but also prioritize, which I think will be extremely helpful.

This may make me sound hopelessly dorky, but there's something so satisfying about the prospect of organizing the next few months of my life!  After I go to the gym and eat dinner, I'm going to sit down with a mug of tea and map everything out.  Ahh...

Do you use a Planner Pad? What do you like about it?

xo,



P.S. Thanks to those of you who chimed in with advice about the size. I went with the Executive size because I like to have extra space. I'll let you know what I think!

I switched to a Planner Pad about a year ago...also do to Kimberly's recommendation (don't you just lover her). Last year I used the executive size but decided this year to switch to the personal size. For me this has worked out well as I can carry it in most of my purses and I like that. I even decorated mine this year (again...listening to Kimberly) and have gotten so many compliments on it.

I have a feeling you will love yours. Good Luck,

Kathi

Let me know how you like it. I've never used one and I am so hopelessly disorganized that I don't think that it will help me - so I'm anxious to hear your report!

I love mine! I use an executive size. I've used it since '07 and it is very helpful. I look forward to hearing what you think.

My whole life is in my Blackberry... i have limited the amount of things I carry with me because I actually carry tons of stuff!

I bought a planner pad this year too (ofcourse on Kimberly's recommendation)..I bought the personal size as I thought it would be more portable but i think I might need the executive size as I like to ramble a little while planning plus I like jotting down micro tasks.Let me know how you like it- I love journal, notebooks and planner pad talk..:)

I love the 'thought' of organizing too!
This is how I 'decorated my plannerpad:

I love the fact that I have space to figure out all the tasks for the week before assigning them to days and/or times. Writing them down helps me not get anxious about my tasks. I have never used a planner before this but this one felt pretty 'right'..:).

I would love to hear how you review the planner pad after you've used it for a while. I too heard about it from Kimberly Wilson but as I have a sort of listing and planning obsession beyond the practical use for it I worried it would waste more time for me than save time. I've still considered ordering one from time to time though! I'm a total nerd with that kind of thing, I lovvve new notebooks and especially making detailed color-coded plans in them!

I'm echoing Ashley's request for a review, please. Right now I have my life pretty much on one spreadsheet(!) but I'm always fascinated by other people's organization tools.

Yay for executive size!! Have fun decorating it, that's the best part.
