A look inside my Happy Planner mini (vertical) and Budget Planner sidekick – 1 month review.
I also have a review of the full-size Happy Planner [Girl] + other planners I used in 2018.
In the video, I say I’m using the “Jordan Sparks” method, what I really mean is the Jordan PAGE method. Whether or not Jordan Sparks has a budgeting method, I dunno.
You can learn more about her method here.
Have you used a vertical planner? How have you made it work? Let me know!
In case you’re wondering, I bought my planners at Michael’s.
I started a cash budget and managed to stick to it. I also learned that I needed to be more realistic and budget for expenses beyond groceries and outings. The result is a much better sense of where my money is going.
I was insanely busy! Between work commitments, writing goals, working out, and making time for blogging, podcasting, and going out, it’s a miracle I had any time to myself.
I read. A lot. Mostly because all my library books came in at the same time and I had a review to write.
I started documenting my outfits in an effort to get a better sense of my closet and find new ways to pair my clothes. Follow me @lifeingminor (this is the most curated I will ever be)
I started wearing eye shadow again. There is something my skin does not like, but I think I’m closer to finding the culprit after nearly a year without eye product.
How was your January?
If you want to learn more about any of these projects/goals/etc. and how I manage them, let me know.
While I wouldn’t call myself a planner addict, I’m definitely a planner aficionado. I used three different methods in 2018: the Happy Planner Girl (standard size), Bloom Planner (academic), and a (non-Midori) Traveler’s Notebook.
Here’s what worked, what didn’t, and what I’m using in 2019.
After nearly a year using a Moleskine Bullet Journal, I’m taking a step back and returning to a more traditional planner format. Watch the video to find out why I made the switch.
It’s time for another bujo spread! Keeping it simple this month; just some slight changes to last month’s layout, but definitely one that is working for me.
Better late than never… a look at my current bullet journal spread (already thinking of some changes for February).
And I’m off to Disney for a friend’s wedding 🙂 so pictures of my adventures to come.
