With a new year upon us I decided to share my planner and all the nuts and bolts that I will be using for 2017.
In the fall of 2016, I switched to my Recollections Creative Year Solid Planner in metallic ivory. I love it so much that I plan on being it for the entire 2017. You can find it at your local Michael's or online(which is currently out of stock).
I changed the inside of my planner for the coming year. The dividers I made from Target Dollar Spot folders and cut them down to size for my planner. The pockets feature an array of Target Dollars Spot post its and post it notes. The secretary pocket features miscellaneous stickers that can be used on the go from Michaels Recollections collection. The girl with mug I made from a illustration from a illustrator (@nichollekobi) I found on Instagram that I adore. I recolored her with photoshop to look more like myself. The pen is a Target Dollar Spot pen. Despite what you hear I like the Target pens.
In this first section you have this 2017, This is Your Year. It's from The Charmed Shop . A free downloadable printable that you can fill in each area with 7 goals for the year. Genius Miss Trenchcoat. Genius! Download it here.
After that I have the 2017 Calendar overview from Wendaful. You can download it here.
I then have a print out for all the US Holidays for 2016- 2018 from Green & Lyme. You can download it here.
This next printable is Important Dates for the entire year from SewMuchCrafting. You can download it here. Love this. I'm good with birthday but other important dates sometimes go right over my head. This is going to be super helpful.
Then I have a free downloadable printable from Strange Charmed with a list of A Resolution a Day. Which I'm failing right now to mark off. You can download it here.
This next sheet is a January overview sheet which features a mantra, important dates, monthly goals, and reading list. It's from Strange Charm is apart of the printable with A Resolution a Day. Perfect for writing out everything for the month.
From there I go into my monthly calendars which I decorate and forward plan with. They're from Wendaful and can be download here.
After my monthly calendars are my week on 2 pages from Wendaful. I made a page marker from a leftover folder that I used to make my dividers. I used a Today sticker from Heidi Swapp and put some page flags for easy access. You can download the printable here.
Right after the page maker I took a page of grid paper from a Recollections booklet and cut it in half. I used stickers from Me & My Big Ideas Create 365 1829 pieces sticker book to create an area to list additional to-dos, shopping list, bills that need to be paid, dinner menu and a weekly task list. I started this mid-year last year and I highly recommend it.
This next divider is more for note taking and was made from the same pack of folders from the Target Dollar Spot.
On the backside of that divider I have a Heidi Swapp Receipt Pocket which you can get from Michaels. In this section I have a couple of sheet of To-Do lists which came with my planner.
Also a couple of pages of lines paper that I got from Target Dollar spot which I cut down and punched.
In this next section, I have a lot of important information (ie: telephone numbers, doctor information,password log and etc.)
This first printable is telephone log from Green and Lyme that you download here.The next two sheets are my Online Order Tracker and Wish List. Which are both from Wendaful. Love them!
I have a million and one books I want to read but before I get there I must read the books on this list first. This Books to Read printable is from Wendaful and can be downloaded here. To see what I have on this list to read for 2017, go to my blog post "A Look Back on 2016 Reading Challenges ".
This next printable for 2017 Goals for the Year I can not for the life of me locate the source but if you would like to print it out feel free to shoot me an email. I'll happily email it to you.
I then have a running Festival Checklist which I got off of Pinterest. You can find a variety there.
I then have a bucket list for Fall and for Winter using stickers from me & my Big ideas 1557 Seasonal sticker book.
I then have sheets of the Recollections grid paper for jotting down more lists.
This next section featuring a couple of foldout printables. The post its and page flags are all from the Target Dollar Spot. Yes I'm a bit obsessed but they come in handy when you have to jot something down.
This first one is 2017 Fold Out printable from Peanuts Planner Co. I haven't figured out exactly what I'm going to use it for yet. You can get download it here.
I've been on the hunt for a online sales tracker for a while now that has everything I need on one page. I finally found it at PapierMyDay on Etsy. I purchased it for $4.75 and it's worth is so much in my opinion because it's a life saver for me. You can get it here.
The second foldout is from Strange Charmed and it's the 2017 Yearly Overview Printable. Which I started to use to mark my blog post and my schedule for each day if something major was going on. You can download it here.
I forgot to photograph the Quarterly Etsy Stats which are from Green & Lyme. You can download it here. It's great to have the stats of your website and Etsy on hand.
To round off this section I have a Keeping Track of My Social by Recollections . It's part of their new inserts for their zipper planners. This section came from the Boss Inserts. I gave the rest to my sister.It came with a section for Client List, Invoices, and Appointments.You can find them at Michaels.
In this last section I have everything pertaining to my blog. This insert is called the Blog Brainstorm which features a couple of lines to jot down ideas then a calendar below. Super great to schedule blog post for the month. They're from Cort in session and can be downloaded here. Note: the inserts were made for 8x11 paper. So I reduced the size to either 50% or 75% to fit my planner.
Following that I have two pages worth of blog ideas that I found on Pinterest. I scoured all over and took ideas that I knew that I would want to blog about in the future in case I don't know what to blog that particular day. Super helpful and good to have on hand.
To finish off my planner I have a folder that I made from a Target Dollar Spot folder which holds any random pieces of pieces . It's great to have in my planner.
Lastly, I have one of the dividers that came with my planner so that the pages before it don't get too damaged.
This completes my look into my planner for 2017. It's super functional with a bit of cute. Otherwise I would be a disorganized mess. With it only being January a ton more could be put into it in the months ahead. Maybe in a couple of months if things change I'll do a update look. Until then this is my planner.
I would love to see your planner. Feel free to post a photo of what you're using for 2017, your Youtube channel, and/or Instagram.
