A Good Mail Day

My new calendar just came!  I love this day.  I've been using the Busy Body Book for 3 years now and I don't think I could ever switch or adapt.

It's cute, it fits in my purse if I need it, I lay it on my kitchen desk and am not embarrassed.
Oh, I love a big, empty, blank calendar!  I love filling all the important dates - I love picturing the year about to come. I also can never throw away the old calendar.  They become journals to me.

It has several columns for every day.  I usually divide it into KIDS, APPOINTMENTS, TO DO, PIANO LESSONS, and MEALS.  But I'm a doodler, so there is plenty of space for notes and doodles on the other side.  There are months-at-a-glance at the beginning, but I just take it a week at a time.

There are pages of tear out to-do lists in the back!  I love these!!

There is a huge pocket on the back cover - I usually stuff coupons in there. or sweet cards from my family.

This is last years calendar - I clip my game plan and my chores to the front.
Guess I have to clean out the fridge and clean the kitchen today - my schedule says so!

Love this! I love that it has the to do spots. I am a list maker for sure!

I love getting my new calender. I always seem to switch styles. Right now I'm going with the monthly one because I was making impossible to-do lists when I had the weekly/daily style.

A few years ago I went completely digitial, I really miss my paper calendar and crossing things off. I think I'll order one of these :)

Vicky said...

Wow, super mom. That is a busy schedule.
Or am I just lazy and disorganised.
Although I could do with a diary / life planner.

Hello! I've bounced around from one calendar/planner style to the next over the years. What I've been needing is a section for my own lists/tasks that's big enough for what I need and a calendar all in one area. Seems that this one might give me what I need! Thanks! I just ordered mine! :)

Isn't it great to feel organized and there is something about this time of the year and school starting that always makes me want to be even more organized!! Going to go check out this calendar, it looks like the perfect design and size :)

Kelli said...

Another blog friend uses this and loves it. She's giving one away...that's how much she loves it. I love the planner that I have too and don't know what I'd do without it. Enjoy filling in your pages.

I didn't order my regular planner this year and have been regretting it! But this one's August - August? I might have to go for it!!!

Emily said...

Oh, and your handwriting is impeccable! Very jealous of that, mine's a nightmare.

Jennifer@SweetSimplicity said...

Oooh! I love this! I'm always on the hunt for a great, pretty organizer- makes me giddy:) I'm like you- a "list" person for sure.

Kelley said...

I have used Busy Boday books too... I love them. It is such a help to see where everyone needs to be.

Lovely blog! I live by my calendar. If I don't write things down, I have a very hard time remembering. I need to make myself a chore list. Maybe it would help me to get somethings accomplished around the house. :) Thanks for checking out my Halloween rag wreath over at A Little Bit of Everything.
