Organization is my middle name. Well, actually, my name would be waaaay too long if it was Cassandra Organization Mikkonen, but it really should be. I love to organize, sort, plan, list, alphabetize, prioritize, colorize, label – EVERYTHING.
I just bought this planner from Michaels with this calendar insert. I already had one that I really liked from Target (black fabric with gold lines), but found that the gold lines faded way too fast, and the color began to fade very quickly. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that it’s small enough to fit in my purse, but not too small that I can’t write actual plans in it. The calendar pages are not pre-dated, so I was able to put all of the unused, prior months of this year at the back, so that the inserts will last longer than a pre-printed calendar. They also have these cute books, like this Inspiration book that you can add to your planner. I haven’t yet purchased any of these but may in the future.
With the invention of the ever-evolving SmartPhone, I really tried to jump on the app-tracking calendar and to-do list trend, but I couldn’t find any app that quite gave me the satisfaction a planner with handwritten to-do’s and appointments does. I’m also not a devoted planner planner-er, like making my own printables and such, so this was the perfect compromise!
*Disclaimer -I am in NO WAY affiliated with Michael’s (other than the fact that I frequent it far too often) and am not receiving anything for linking their products. I just wanted to share a recent find with you guys!
