{31 Day #2} My Favorite Planner Blog

Day 2 is here and I am still pretty excited about these 31 Days!  I think it is because I am such a geek when it comes to making printables and using my planner.  Today I want to tell you about my favorite planner blog.

Although I love looking at all the pretty planners that have been decorated with Washi tape and stickers, I choose to be more of a practical planner user simply because I know that I would be overtaken with that style!  When I used to scrapbook before my boys were born, I kept a very tight reign on myself so I wouldn't go crazy buying all the accessories associated with the craft.  I loved it, I just knew I had to keep myself from going overboard.  That is the reason I barely decorate my own planner pages.

When I stumbled upon this blog, Giftie Etcetera, it made my heart glad!  I very much like her practical, get it done style of planning.  In the past I had been a selective-perfectionist (I made that term up, can you tell?!) when it came to planning.  I wanted my pages, that I created, to be perfect.  I wanted to write in my planner AND not make any mistakes.  I wanted wanted things neat and perfectly lined up.  After reading a few of  Giftie's (aka Kristy) posts, I felt inspired to let go of some of my restrictions and focus on my purpose for having a planner - to use as a tool to stay on top of things that I needed to do.

My planner sections are set up the same as Kristy's except for two additional sections - I will be talking about these in-depth this month.

There is also an accompanying Facebook Group by the same name.  I have enjoyed the group very much and appreciate being able to communicate with other like-minded people.  I encourage you to check the group out - it's a great place to ask questions!
