Today I am featuring some great organized planners. I love seeing how everyone else uses theirs. I could look at planners all day long! What about you? Do you like planners?
“I absolutely love diaries and pens so when I found this one, I fell in love. It was a 365 diary so I took out the original pages and added in 2013 dated week to a view pages. I work from home in our family business so I need to have an organised diary. I have highlighters and pens for each member of the family
so I know what’s happening with everyone everyday. I drew some of the inspiration for your awesome Filofax diary.”
“There were many things that needed to get organized for me to become a Smooth Operator… Monthly Family Calendar, Daily Schedule, Meal Planning, Grocery Shopping, Cleaning, Laundry, Work Projects, Home Projects, Basic To-Do Lists, Fun Ideas for Little Missy, Things to Buy, Gift Lists and Party Plans, Vacation Ideas, etc. I’m also trying to eat healthier and exercise to lose those last 15 lbs. of baby weight because I really don’t want to become a schlumpadinka. So that means I also have a daily Food and Activity Tracker that I maintain. That’s a lot of stuff to keep track of.”
“My favorite part of a new year is getting a new planner. Really, the day that I head into the office supply store to pick my new best friend is almost better than Christmas for me. And when I find that planner, I skip all the way to the register, pay gleefully and then hurry home to begin filling its pages with awesomeness. I never claimed to be a normal girl. Inevitably though, I can never find a ‘perfect’ planner. I’ve had great planners before, but by the next year, it will have been discontinued and the search for another one that is ‘perfect’ begins again. And since I’m a blogger, I have specific needs in a planner that aren’t to be found in just any old store. So I made my own. So far, I love it. I blogged about it here http://www.thriftycraftygirl.com/2013/01/blog-planner-heaven.html

It was a Christmas gift to myself, and it’s absolutey beautiful! On the front of this purple leather cover it reads:
How sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now I’m found;
was blind, but now I see.
I HAD to have this when I saw it! I bought this back in December at a book store. Just back in August, I gave my life to Christ, so the words on the front really hit home for me and now I finally understand exactly what these words mean. Because of God’s grace, He did save a wretch like me, and for that, I am forever thankful! Each page has a scripture on it and below the scripture it gives the meaning of the scripture in lamen terms.
“My pretty planner inspired by you – the Apex Filofax with a great zip pouch. I love the post it notes and tabs. I loved your highlighting so much, I’ve copied the idea of colour coordinating.”

This is my new planner which I customized by making my own tabs for Gratitude, Inspiration, Receipts, Finances, Notes, Work, Projects, Dates to remember, Contact info, Coupons, ect. The “To Do”tab is on a plastic tab so I can write them on a sticky notes and take with me if need be, I also did the same for my Shopping lists. I organize the coupons I will be using for the week and take them from my Coupon binder and put them in my planner which I always have on me so if I can run into a store they are with me, this helps to not over buy. I love planners and have had many, but I am happy with this one and love the colors I choose and my little bling bling. Unfortunately the pictures do not do justice.
I am fairly new to your site, and I ADORE all your wonderful organizing ideas! I am on a mission to organize my home this year and I love all the tips you have in decluttering and organizing! So I must thank you!! I also saw your planner for 2013 and I love planners! A few years ago(after having baby #4) I was in a rut and I knew I needed a planner to help me get my life organized, so I turned to my mom! She is an AMAZING organizer and she gets things done! She plans, prepares, and then does! While her and I were together for a couple of weeks (I’m in Missouri, she is in Arizona) we decided to come up with a planner that would work for us. With the help of Excel and Photoshop our planners were created. We used our planners for the year of 2012 and they worked great. I feel like my life has gotten back in order and I don’t forget so many things, ha! We got so many questions and compliments on our planner that we decided we’d sell the files! We call our planner My Best Day Planner 2013. We just opened an Etsy store:http://www.etsy.com/shop/PolkaDotChalkboard
