Deciding on the LifePlanner™ layout that’s right for you can be a difficult task! With all three signature layouts on sale (at 40% off!!!!), now is the time to try one out and discover what the buzz is all about!
Our friends over at Bloguettes helped us out by explaining how each layout works for their unique personalities and preferences based on their job. All three agreed that with busy days filled with meetings, events and miscellaneous office duties, keeping a planner is essential to staying on track and mapping out the week ahead. How they approached their planning was totally varied, however. Read on to see how the different layouts can be utilized and get inspired to get organized!
Lorena (Co-Founder): Horizontal LifePlanner™
As one of the cofounders of Bloguettes, every day is different! I chose this particular layout because it’s very open and doesn’t restrict my writing as there is ample room to write any add-ins that may come up within the day, as is always the case. The color of the planner is really what caught my eye. It’s visually appealing and let’s be honest, no one likes to stare at a boring planner! I was able to use my Erin Condren stickers to highlight my daily to-dos on the sides of my weekly view pages, adding another pretty visual to what needed to be accomplished within the day. I also used colorful EC pens to further systemize my week and categorize my appointments with color coding. I am so excited to confidently take on 2016 with my Erin Condren plannee! Sakura (Co-Founder & Brand Director): Hourly LifePlanner™
My role at Bloguettes is Creative Brand Director (as well as a Co-Founder). That means everything & anything that is being published by the company must reflect our brand aesthetic and look visually pleasing. My days are always jam-packed with meetings with different company department teams. If I’m not in a meeting, I’m busy shooting YouTube videos, stock photos, you name it! That’s why I need a planner that has a time slot for every 30 minutes. Every planner works differently for everyone, but this specific Erin Condren planner works perfectly with my crazy day-to-day schedule!
Shanna (Editor): Vertical LifePlanner™
As an editor, I handle everything related to the blog. We have at least one blog post going live every day, which means keeping track of the posting schedule is super important. My particular layout was incredibly helpful for my type of work! Each day is split into three separate chunks. I used the top segment for blog posts, the middle for work (meetings, to-do items, reminders…etc), and the last portion for my personal agenda. It made things a lot more organized and having three specific sections allowed me to quickly glance at it throughout the day and know exactly what to do. There were also lined sections on the sides and bottom of the planner that let me write additional to-do lists or add motivational quotes when I need a spark of inspiration.
My number one trick when using the planner was sticky notes! Blog posts have a tendency to get switched around so writing blog post titles on sticky notes makes it easier to lift & stick items wherever I need to. It’s a lot better than having to erase, or worse, scratch out, entries. Basically, using sticky notes keeps my planner from looking like a hot mess!
