[Day 9] of 31 Days of Balance: Plan in Advance

 Girl. If you don't have one, go get yourself a planner. Use it. Really, commit to using it for 30 days, or even just until the end of this series, and tell me that it doesn't work. And if you don't find yourself any more organized at the end...then you are either hopeless, or much more talented at keeping everything together than I am. 

It's not real until you write it down.

I have two favorite planners...the one I'm using right now is the Erin Condren "On the Go" Life Planner. I like this one because days are broken down into "morning," "day," and "night," which is how I tend to set time apart to do things. It also has room for to-do lists and weekly goals on every page. It works for me. It also makes it incredibly versatile for any lifestyle. Con? It's large and in charge, and it's pricey. My purse is large enough to qualify as luggage, so it works for me. Plus, I have large handwriting. I also had a coupon, or else I wouldn't have paid $60 for a planner. I'm not crazy. If you are interested...I have more coupons and coupon codes that they sent me! Email me or comment and I'll hook ya up :)

Another planner that I love equally is the Moleskin weekly planner. Again, no time slots you're roped into each day, and it also has entire blank page every week for lists, goals, reminders, etc. I must have room for a list.

My planner goes everywhere with me, literally. My husband and I were discussing what made me interested in Elder Law and Estate Planning to begin with the other day, and after thinking about it for a while...I think I've figured it out. I get to plan for a living.
