Hopefully More Than A Doodle Book

Notebook- Chapters, Planner- Chapters 

Last week I went out and bought myself these cute little things; a planner and a notebook.

I needed something to help me feel more organized because the notes in my phone or the to-do lists that are floating around in my head or the random sticky notes that are at the bottom of my purse are just not cutting it for me anymore.

As much as I really wanted the mother of all planners, the Erin Condren one, I really didn't want to spend that much money on something that I'm not even sure how much I will actually use.  Plus, I didn't want to wait for it to be shipped, because when I get something in my head, I want it now.  Like, yesterday.

But these work just as good, and I love that they're small so they fit perfectly in my purse.

I have to say, every time I use them, I can't help but be brought back to those school days when you were given a planner on your very first day.  Remember how organized you thought you were going to be at the beginning of the school year? You would start off writing every little piece of homework you had, only for it later to be used as a place where you and your friends would write letters back and forth in class.

I'm hoping this time will be different, though.  Should I just go ahead and doodle RB + TD on the front cover now?

Now I just actually need to start booking some appointments or something so I can put these babies to good use.

There is one thing that I don't need a reminder of, though, but I can't help flipping the pages just to see this.

One month from today I will be flying to Toronto to spend Christmas with my family and, by then, the two week old addition to our family.  Can you say excited?  EXCITED!!!

That reminds me, how does one pack everything into one suitcase when Christmas presents are also thrown into the mix?  I think I'm going to have a big, big problem on my hands.  

I guess I better start planning...and I have just the place to do so now!

  3. First of all I adore that planner. Thank you for sharing, because I too wanted the Erin Condren one, but just can't choke down the price. And I remember that first day when I was all cute and organized...and then by the first week I had usually lost my planner. Oh well - I made it!
