Planner Organization

Ok, I admit...I am a planner addict. In this busy life of Mom, Wife, Nurse, Thirty-One Consultant and Volunteer; I really need to stay organized. I just switched planners this past week, because on my morning stop to Staples, I fell in love. I am a very visual person, and LOVE color!  (Almost colored the cover on this  I went from this very large planner 8-1/2 x 11

To this adorable, colorful, perfect size 7-1/2 x 9 planner, that will fit much better in my purse :)

This planner is one of the Martha Stewart Home Office products. And, oh my gracious, I have to say that I was so excited when I saw this line of products become available. They are so adorable, and yet functional. This picture shows the inside cover, which has a nice pocket to hold my colorful tear-drop shaped color coding labels, as well as the colorful tab labels. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that this is a 3 ring binder style, because this way I can add all my own favorite areas throughout the planner.

For instance, here are the colorful tabs that I used to label my months across the top for easy viewing.

And, a view of the full month. I love that Martha has included helpful tips on various days throughout the months. (And FYI, Martha is on a first name basis with me now. Unknowingly to her, we have bonded)

Here is another great product from Martha's Home Office line. The business card sheet protectors. I have so many cards from all of the various doctor's that my family has to see, that it is nice to keep them organized in here. I even used my label maker and each family member has their name along the side of the page with their particular doctor's business card information. This makes it very quick and easy for me to access, when needing to contact them.

I still need to make another stop back to the store and pick up Martha's zipper pouch to hold my colored pens. Yes, each family member has a color, which makes my planner even more fun....and understandable 'at a glance'. Oh happy me!
