March Madness (part 2)

Now that I’ve confessed to all of the insanity of my March planning, I thought it was only fair that I share with you the flip-throughs of the planners I used.

You’ll see in this video the evolution (or de-evolution?) of my planning through the month, which I think was influenced by some vacation time and a busy work schedule. I’m still getting used to the empty nest mama life, too.

For April, I’m hoping to settle back into my beloved Matilda. (fingers crossed)

Stay tuned for a video of my April setup!

My Weekly Reset Process

I thought I’d share my weekly process as I set up my planner for a new week. I’ve got a checklist I created that was inspired by some of my favorite YouTube channels – Planning Annie & Brandy Michelle Plans.

This helps me to feel like I’ve got a good handle on things as I start a new week. I can stay focused on the most important things and (try to) not get distracted by whatever pops up during the week.

How do you start your week? Do you do a reset?

March Madness

March was a hot mess in my planner world. I have so many thoughts (and so many planners!)

Do you find yourself suffering from “planner ennui” from time to time?

I’ve been trying to figure out if it’s a seasonal thing, driven by life changes, or is it just FOMO from social media.

I shared this on my video – and I shared it last fall on Instagram – and I’m going to try to stick to this manifesto for the future.

We’ll see if it works 🤓

I managed to stay in my A6 rings for almost a year in 2021. I really want to get back to that point again. Where I’m just using my planner and not thinking about it. Just USING it.

Know what I mean?

How about you?
