Getting Organised | ERIN CONDREN PLANNER

Yesterday was my work day at my carer's job. I work all day Sunday in the community and the rest of the week i work from home. Now, working both jobs, cooking,cleaning,seeing to the children and baby,bath times, homework...you see what i am getting at here?. There really doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day and i am guilty of missing appointments, or forgetting to pay dinner money on time because my head feels like it is going to explode with all the stuff i have to remember.



I asked for an Erin Condren planner for Christmas. I had been browsing planners and after looking at the reviews,i had my heart set on the Erin Condren. I got one and was over the moon!. Have i used it much? in a word no. I have had no time for myself, and it really is taking it's toll.

Yesterday i had an hour and a half break at work- instead of going back home and no doubt doing housework!, i thought i am going to use this time for me.So i packed my planner in my work bag and was going to get my life organised! :)


Break started, and it snowed all day- literally!. I was so cold, so could not wait to get to the cafe and get warm. I sat with my lunch and my pens and got stuck in.The time just flew by!. I meal planned for this week, i scheduled all my blog content and you tube videos,i wrote ideas down and even got some of next weeks schedule sorted. 

I have sectioned my planner off into three parts - Home,Work and then other - so home is cleaning and chores, i know! how exciting :), work is blog work and you tube, and other is anything else like Alessia's brownie's fee are due, or deliveries i need to wait in for.

I am so happy i have finally put my planner to use! and i am going to plan the following week every Sunday on my break and hopefully get my life organised! 

If you have any tips on getting organised or have a routine that works around home and work, i would love to hear them :)

  3. A good planner is essential. I rely on mine so much. Without it my life as a blogger, mum, business owner, PTA chairperson, and general errand runner would be a mess! I also like to use mine to plan meals too. It's basically my daily Bible, Haha!

  8. A good planner is absolutely essential for me, especially one that allows you to split up days into different sections for different things. This is so pretty as well!

  9. I've heard amazing things about these planners - but I've never used one myself. I tend to do all my planning on my phone and using my Outlook calendar at work... Maybe I should invest in a planner though x
