New Planner, Who Dis? Part 2.

New Planner, Who Dis? Part 2.

Yep, part 2! Even I didn’t know there was going to be a part two! (Here’s Part 1 in case you missed it ) And truth be told, maybe a part 3 too!

I just finished organizing my kitchen/photo studio. Yay! Guess what I discovered? More planners than I could possibly imagine! I didn’t count them though, do you think I should? I’m afraid if I do find out how many I own, I may have to stop buying them!!! Oh, the horror of that!



Planners 1

Many of these I picked up at at my local thrift shop and use solely in photo shoots for clients, my online shop, blog and all of my social media. They were inexpensive and perfect this purpose.

Planners 3

One of the notebooks above are from a set of three that I use for brainstorming ideas, mostly. They are filled with simple lined paper and have inspiring and colorful covers. One says “Create”, another says “Inspire” and a third says “Be amazing”. I’ve filled a ton of these type notebooks over the years.

Do you have special planners, journals or notebooks that you use on a daily basis? Do you also have some that you never use, because they are just too pretty or too pristine and so darn blank!

Planners 5

I use a combo of the three that I mentioned above, that I make myself. I call it my multi-purpose life planner. I use this in conjunction with the memo app that came pre-installed on my phone. Both my system and the memo app are quite simple. I find that I do much better this way, rather than using the type with all the bells and whistles.
