Me & My Planner (Boho Berry Challenge)
Wednesday, 1 November 2017 - 21:57

If you know me, you'll probably know I don't just have one planner. I have several. And while some people (mostly planner people) seem to understand why I have more than one planner, a lot of people don't get this. Well, I'll explain it to you!

In the photo you can see me with my Erin Condren Life Planner (which was given to me by Deborah Knox), and my Simple Stories Carpe Diem Robin's Egg A5 planner.

I use my ECLP (Erin Condren Life Planner) for my company/shop Retro Hugs. It's not really clear in the photo, but it has my full name on it, and my shop name. I write down information on orders and just administration in general. It helps me to keep it separate from my personal life and personal/family planner.

I use my Carpe Diem Robin's Egg planner for everyday planning. It has personal stuff in it. It has all my appointments, but I also keep track of appointments and events from the rest of the family. I usually take this planner with me when I go somewhere. In this planner I have my own vertical wo2p inserts. I use thick 160 grams paper, which also means it's twice as heavy as when I would use regular paper. But it lasts longer and it's suitable to decorate with pens and stamps (something I really like to do, when I have time).

Now I have a couple of other planners, but I've decided not to show them in this post. Why? Well, I feel these two are really my main planners. Everything else isn't really used on a daily basis. I have a personal size Filofax for example which I only take with me if space in my bag is really limited. The same goes for my wedding planner (the wedding is over, but I haven't finished writing in it). And I have a bunch of other planners I still use, but for different projects and just not every day.

I'm hoping to add a new ECLP by the end of this year. Because my current ECLP ran from July 2016 until the end of December 2017. I don't have anything similar, and for my shop's sake (and me designing stickers!) I just need a new ECLP.

I also just purchased a new Carpe Diem planner. A Marigold to be precise. I've been eyeing it for a while. I didn't think I would add it to my collection. Mostly because I have a lot of planners already and it's not really a need, per se. But it's beautiful, and I got a very good deal on it during PlannerCon Europe last weekend! More about that soon.
