I have a problem.
I recently purchased not one, not two, but FOUR planners for 2018! And this isn’t even counting the 18-month ban.do planner I purchased this summer. Let me try to explain my madness.
Earlier this fall I purchased a 2018 Day Designer. This is the planner that I have lived by for years. It features goal-setting worksheets and even charts to help you sketch out your ideal week and your ideal month. The daily planning pages include space for you to write your to-do list and an area for you to plan when you will do each task. It’s this feature that makes the Day Designer my lifeline. If I don’t plan when I’m going to do something, it most likely won’t get done. The daily planning pages also include inspirational quotes, space for you to write down what you’re grateful for that day, and other features. You can learn more about the Day Designer here.
I bought my 2018 Day Designer as soon as it went on sale and I was all set for the new year. Until Carrie Green launched the Perfectly Planned 2018 planner.
Perfectly Planned 2018 Planner
Carrie Green is the founder of the Female Entrepreneur Association and if you’ve been following me for a long time you know that I’m kind of obsessed with her because I want See Jane Write to be for female content creators what FEA is for female business owners. I try to follow every move Carrie makes so when she launched a planner, of course, I had to buy it immediately. And it’s a good thing I decided to act fast. The planner is currently sold out! (But you can join the waitlist to be notified of other products to be released.)
I justified buying this planner saying that my Day Designer would help me plan my day-to-day life and I’d use Carrie’s planner to manage my business. Then my friend Christina Renteria decided to release a planner, too!
The Wardrobe Planner
Fashion and beauty guru Christina Renteria of Pink Lux is a personal stylist, a huge supporter of See Jane Write and the makeup artist behind the beat face you see me flaunting in any professional photos. Her new product, The Wardrobe Planner, promises to help me have my most stylish year yet by allowing me to not only plan my day but also my outfits. So, I can slay my goals and look fabulous while doing so? Yes, please! You can learn more about The Wardrobe Planner here.
The Content Planner
In addition to needing a planner to help me plan my day and plan my wardrobe, I also need a planner to help me plan my content. See Jane Write is a top priority for me. So Jane needs her own planner! And that’s exactly what The Content Planner is. This planner helps you strategize your blog and social media content and set goals for both. In the past I’ve used my ban.do planner for this, but The Content Planner is actually designed for this so I can’t wait to start using it! You can order your Content Planner here.
Now, I am not recommending that you buy 4 different planners for 2018. As I stated, I have a problem. But I do believe everyone should have at least one.
I’m not sure if I will use all four of these planners next year. I plan to figure that out in December after they have all arrived and any planner that I think I won’t use I will give away. But I’m certain I’ll keep at least one to plan out my day-to-day life and I’m sure I’ll keep The Content Planner to plan my blog and social media content.
If you’re thinking of sliding in my DMs or the comments section to tell me that I can just use a spreadsheet for all of these things, don’t. I’m fully aware that I can use spreadsheets, apps, blah, blah, blah, etc., to plan my days, my blog content, and even my wardrobe. But who wants to do that!? There is nothing cute or exciting about a spreadsheet! But an adorable new planner that I can hold in my hands always makes me feel as if I can conquer the world!
What planner are you using in 2018?
