So let’s talk about getting organized…I purchased this Kate Spade 2015 Agenda (small size with black and white stripes) at http://www.swoozies.com and I am in love with the interior. It is very chic but also very understated so that you could dressed it up with various stickers and washi tape if you’d like. What I like most, and what has been keeping me organized, is the monthly view on two pages. There are weekly pages in this agenda as well, but I find that I don’t really use them much. When I can see the entire month at a glance, I get a good sense of what’s coming up as well as things I need to take care of immediately.
I just started this month so it’s a little bare, but normally I like to mark bill dues dates, gym days, events and other things that I need to remember. I try to find space to write down the books I want to read during that month also, and I check them off as I complete them.
I haven’t fully gotten into planner decorating, but I definitely plan to. I think that being organized can be fun if you spruce it up and make it work for you and your personality. The journaling memos in this picture are from Michaels’ Heidi Swapp collection. I love them so much and I will def be going back to purchase more! The page flags are from the dollar section at Target. I had to search for a minute to find those things too! And I really wish I could find more than one but whatevs! Lol…This 17 month calendar retails for about $30, but there are some more affordable ones out there…
Actually, Sugar Paper just released their line of agendas and notebook planners at Target this week. You can get the smaller agendas for $7.99 and they are super cute! Here is a quick look at them…The one on the left just has the monthly view 2015 calendar and the rest of the notebook is for notes. The one on the right is an actual agenda with both monthly and weekly views. Therefore, you can choose one based on your needs/preference.
Do guys maintain an agenda? If so, what kind? I have been watching tons of Youtube videos and following some folks on Instagram that are really into this and would put my little planner to shame, but we all have to start somewhere, right?! I really want this neon pink Filofax, but it appears to be sold out everywhere…Besides, I have to make sure I actually maintain this agenda for more than a few months before I go investing a bunch of money into a Filofax.
Anywhoo, I hope you all are having a blessed weekend…Talk to you soon! xx
