She Plans: Storing Extra Supplies

I recorded this first, before my other videos...I don't know why...LOL But here is how I store my extra stuff and other random things like that. One thing you need to know: I'm totally wrong on the disc measurements! Sorry about that! LOL

Martha Stewart/Avery has 1" & 1 1/4" & Staples has 1" & 1 1/2", but I've recently heard of Levenger Circa discs having more options (both size & color).

And just to clarify, these are my own opinions--I don't work for Staples or anything, honest! LOL

She Plans: Menus, Budgets & Notes, Oh My!

In this video, I'll show you a little bit on how I plan my meals each week, as well as a few other sections in my planner.

I have one more video in the series after this one, in case you were wondering: how I keep my planner supplies & extras organized! I don't expect this blog to be *just* about planners, but about organization in general. It just so happens that this is how I decided to start the year off! Time management is a big issue--if you can't keep your schedule or routines organized, it will be difficult to keep everything else in line!

What are some things you struggle to keep organized?

She Plans: Weekly Schedule & Project List

As promised, here's a look at my weekly set-up and my project list. I've used the Martha Stewart pages in the past, but I didn't utilize the space as well because she uses a column layout for each day...then each day is separated into morning, afternoon & evening. You can check those out here.

I like the week on 2 pages set-up that I'm using now. I like the amount of writing space on this layout, because I typically don't write in an "appointment" format, but rather just in a to-do list format, and the wide, lined space allows me to write to my heart's content! Here's my Part 2:

She Plans: A Look Inside Planner 3.0

Hey everyone! So in my last post, I promised I'd show you my new planner, affectionately dubbed "Planner 3.0". I thought doing a video would help give you a better look instead of just pictures. When I first recorded this, I discovered something about myself that my friends probably already know: I talk a lot.

I trimmed it down and decided to make it into a series. So here is Part 1, which will show you my monthly calendar and the general set-up of my planner. It's also the longest in the series (so far), so stick with me!

Some links I mention in the video:


In my next post, I'll show you my weekly pages & my project section in Part 2! Now that we've already made it through the first week of January, have you decided on a calendar yet? If not, when do you start looking for one?

She Plans on Paper

ver the years I have tried to perfect my schedule-keeping methods. I used to keep a pocket calendar when I was in high school--you know the kind, with sunflowers or kittens on the front? When I married, I had a wall calendar up, with stickers, colored pens, etc. But the problem was, I was the only one using it! So, I started using my phone calendar--it was easy to update on the go, and I could send a quick text to my husband so he could put it in his phone.

Then my phone broke.

It was never quite the same after that, and eventually I replaced it because I could no longer turn it on or anything. The touch screen had become completely unresponsive. I lost all my information, calendar or otherwise. Sad day.

She Can Laminate!

I just wanted to post a picture of one of my exciting Christmas gifts...yes, folks, it's a laminator! I have to admit, no one though to get one for me, but they did get my one of my close-second "favorite things": an Amazon gift card! I knew right away what I was going to purchase...

I use a laminator at work at least twice a week, if not more. Every now and then I have something at home that I need to laminate but I don't want (or have time) to take it down to the office to take care of it. What would you need a home laminator for?

Here are some ideas:

  • protect paper insurance/ID/membership cards
  • preserve kids' art projects
  • protect your master to-do list (use a dry erase marker to tick off completed items then wipe clean at the end of the day)
  • create crafts (place mats, bookmarks, etc.)
  • create a dry-erase board in a pinch!
  • flash cards for the student in your home
  • turn pretty scrapbook paper into planner inserts/dividers
If that's not enough, simply do an online search for ideas and you will come up with a ton of stuff! So, here I am now, with my very own laminator for home and I'm thinking about joining a support group for laminator-aholics.


Now, let's LAMINATE!

She Has Goals

Happy New Year!

It's that time of year when everyone makes goals--some are easy but others are challenging. Some will be met, and some will be forgotten or are simply unattainable (winning the lotto anyone?).

Traditionally, I take the minimalist approach: make few goals and you have fewer chances of failure! But this year, I just feel like it's a good year to push myself. Here are some things I'd like to do in 2014, with my plan below each one:

  • Get (and stay) more organized
    • I'd like to use my planner more, and I'm also hoping this blog will help keep me accountable and on track!
  • Pump up my fitness routine (double my current 1-hour/week)
    • I currently attend a weekly Zumba class, but I'd like to add an at-home fitness routine that is small bursts of 20 min. exercises, 3 times a week
  • Eat cleaner (less processed, more whole foods)
    • Last fall I cut out caffeine & sugar, but it only lasted 6 weeks. I'd like to start again and implement more vegetables this time. No more "forgetting" to eat and then rushing through a drive through or over to the candy jar!
  • Complete my first year of classes toward my credentials (I'm half way there, but I took a year off...)
    • I'm going to look into a couple of online options, and hope my current credits transfer
  • Blog regularly
