[31 Days #13] Giftie Etcetera (Guest Posts Tomorrow!)

Did your heart skip a beat when you saw a series called "31 Days of Planner Fun"?  The first thing I did when I decided to participate in 31 Days was to check out the organization section to see if anyone else was going to blog about planners.

Want to know a secret?  I know where you can get 365 days of planning and organization (give or take a few days because you never know what life is going to throw at you).  Kristy, creator of the Giftie System and the owner of the Giftie Etcetera, writes almost everyday on the topic of planners, systems, organization and order.  Everyday I check my news reader first thing to see if her blog has posted anything new.

When I first got started using a planner, I was somewhat overwhelmed.  I created inserts and dividers (lost of dividers) and posted information that was thrown all over my planner.  I got a peek at the planners that were decorated like scrapbooks and tried to use some washi tape to give my pages some color, but knew right away that wasn't going to be for me.

What to do?  Fortunately I came across Giftie's blog and knew right away that her system would work best for me.  I let go of decorating expectations, and the idea that I needed a divider for all 749 areas of my life.  I read back posts and videos and set up my planner as closely as I could to match Kristy's system.  It's been over a year and I haven't deviated very far from th e plan since that time.

Guess what!?  Tomorrow Kristy is guest blogging on Planner Fun!  The title of her post is, "The Importance of a System for Successful Planning" and it is awesome!  I can't wait for you to read about the basics of her system - and remember you can read about it in detail on her blog!

So be sure to visit Wednesday, and stay tuned on Thursday when I share with you my favorite Giftie Etcetera blog posts and tips.
