Planners are very important books in so many of our lives.
I say books, but there are just so many different ways to keep track of life now. You can use a phone hooked up to the cloud sharing with your computer, tablet and every other electronic device you own. You can use pieces of paper from your kid’s school, that maybe aren’t the best choice, but you know where to find them. Or you can use a traditional planner.
One of the reasons that I love a traditional planner is that I like to make lists, lists about things to do, to get, to make. I need to be able to put my stickies somewhere, or my entire desk would look like a patchwork of chaos! Also, as a goal setter, it is proven that writing your goals down are better ways to visualize them happening. So I use stickies and sharpies in my planners to make sure that I see them regularly. And finding the best planner for my networking marketing business is hard.
I remember just a few years ago, the only option you had was the basic day-timer from the office supply store. It was sturdy, did its job and everyone was happy, but were they? In the last 3 or 4 years more and more pretty planners have come onto the market. From Erin Condren, Plum Paper, Heidi Swapp, My Big Ideas, it seems that everyone has a planner now-a-days. And all have great parts about them. I have bought many many of them, and have currently been using one from Blue Sky. And while it works, it isn’t perfect.
So, when this baby hit the market on December 1st, I was super excited. Have a quick watch
Lisa Bearnson is the creative mind behind Anthology, and does a beautiful job creating beautiful items, and this one is no exception. The price point is amazing. ($39US/$52CND) And what you get with it is absolutely mind blowing

Things I love about this planner: I love how easy it is to use. It comes undated, so you can start whatever month you want. But you have the pretty date stamp to fill in the dates. I love the size of the planner. It is substantial enough to feel like it isn’t going to get lost, but small enough to take it with you. I LOVE that I can add and move pages around. (see below for a great offer).
What I don’t love – the amount of space on weekends – but that is just me. Some weekends feel super busy for me, so I need a bit more space. But there are stickies for that.
In the world of planning, this is a great addition to the marketplace, and I am personally hoping to see the line expand.
PS – For every $75 you purchase, you can receive an additional item for 50% off!
PPS – anyone who purchases a planner from me in December 2016, will receive a complimentary download to print and use. A choice between a “mom’s on the go” kit or a “direct sellers business on the go kit”. Both have 10 great sheets to use with your planner!
So exciting to get 2017 off to a great start. Keep in touch and I will be sharing other tips to wrap up 2016 and make 2017 awesome!
