Michael’s Recollections Notebook Cover Review

Whew, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve been here. How are y’all doing? Is your year going good? I’ve been suffering from a planning existential crisis. Am I planning effectively? Am I being productive? Is there a better system? Who am I? You know, just the general questions you ask yourself when you begin…

DIY Bow Clips

Okay, y’all. I know it’s been a minute since you’ve heard from us, but now that the holidays are mostly out of the way life is slowing down again. Slow enough that we can even do a diy project or two. Today, I decided I really needed some new clips for my new planner baby…

Color Coding My Life

I’m pretty sure I say this every year, but I am going to be more organized in 2016! I’m determined to get my life together in a way that makes sense to me and that means stickers and pretty colors. You really should have seen that coming. I know New Year’s Resolutions are saved until…

No Buy November

Okay y’all, I’m going to say something that all of us already know…planners and planner goodies are expensive. Yeah, I know.

Handy Dandy Tab Trick

Just like most of you, my planner is so much more to me than a list of appointments and chores. It’s my journal and memory keeper. In my planner you’ll find what I did that day, where I went, who I met, and how I felt. There’s scribbles and doodles all through out the pages….
