Can you believe it’s the end of 2017 already? I feel this year has flown by. I haven’t been as active on here over the last few months but I have never been so busy.
Like many people I suffer from twitchy fingers and I have an inability to relax meaning I take on far too much, which for me came crashing down when I got very sick in November.
However, things are on the mend and I’ve really taken stock of 2017 and what I aim to do going forward. Tomorrow there will be a post as part of the Planner Girls Collective where I will share my goals for 2018 so for today let’s reflect over what I’ve changed.
When 2017 began I was in a pocket size TN and enjoying it. About March I swapped back to a ring planner but it didn’t last more than 2 months. Since then I have been in a TN just in various sizes. I have tried personal, micro, A6 and now I’m in B6.
I have cut back a lot on decoration and find I am rarely using washi at all and stickers are more for function and mild decor.
I really have homed in on what I need from a planner and the purpose it should serve. I no longer seek to have that ultimate pretty planner and lust after everyone else’s, it’s simply not for me.
My 2018 set-up is pretty much the same as how I’ve finished 2017 which the exception of one Planner which I’ve introduced.
So what am I using?
For my everyday carry – do everything planner which houses a weekly diary, monthly overview, book reviews insert, to-do insert and 2 notebooks (dot and lined). This will be my B6 Cinnamon Stick Nayadori.
I am also using the beautiful B6 meadowgate for my business which has a simple incoming order tracker, outgoing order tracker and notebook in.
My new addition which is stunning is the Recollections horizontal planner with the Galaxy cover. I am using this for my studies. I learnt at the end of this year I need to plan my studies out much better than I am as my Masters is getting so much focus my diploma has fallen to the wayside.
So there we have it my 2018 set-up. I would love to know what you’ll be using in the new year so feel free to pop me a comment below:)
