I’m not really one for New Years Resolutions or anything like that. I am in a constant battle with myself to get the basics done, ain’t nobody got time for adding more things to the to-do list! This year however, I happened to have taken a course about Stress and Coping, and using a journal/planner was one suggested tool in managing our stress levels. I decided a few months back that I would start one and I finally have! I know many people have migrated to using computers, smartphones and tablets as daily planners but I could never get in the groove of things using one, and nothing ever flawlessly syncs for me, ever.
I did some research and I was really hoping to find a pre-printed and binded planner that would suit my needs. I purchased this one from Tools4Wisdom on Amazon, I ended up loving the cover and nothing else. It’s not that quality was bad – it just wasn’t what I needed.
I ended up going the blogging route, looking for something that would work as a blogging planner.which was something I was looking for blog specific pages in these pre-made planners and I just wasn’t finding something that called to me.
Eventually, I stumbled over to Etsy to see what was available in hand-made items and came across printable kits. I did all the math and while printing out these kits can be a bit more expensive than just buying a blank planner, they are CUTE, really cute. Outside of being aesthetically pleasing, they are also chock-full of really specific pages pertaining to blogging.
Initially I fell in love with iHEARTOrganizing’s selections, however, her blog planner was no longer updated yearly and all that was in stock was past years or a blank edition and I absolutely hate having to fill out every single page with the date by hand.
Continuing on with my search I finally came across MamasGotItTogether‘s shop and I fell in LOVE!

Here’s what I’ve done with my purchase from MamasGotItTogether
I’m using both the A5 and Full Page layouts in two seperate binders, one for on-the-go and one for my desk at home where I do most of my work. There’s literally a planner for everything in this shop and I plan on eventually buying the full-set as a home-binder to her the whole family organized!
