How is it the third Thursday of the month already? I really am in awe that September ends next week. Ah well, one step closer to October which is my favorite month – and has my favorite holiday! Today though, I’m back with Keep It Together, a monthly scrapbooking/planning/Project Life link-up that I host with the lovely Alexandra.
Alright, so I’m totally failing at decorating my planner and updating my Entertainment Bullet Journal. But I’m getting there! It’s just kind of been a bit crazy lately. I’m almost up to date on my Bujo though. If you don’t know, I started a bullet journal this year but instead of using it as a day-to-day planner, I decided to use it to keep track of entertainment things – books read, monthly playlists, and movies I saw. It’s fun to be able to look back at each month and see what I did or enjoyed. So yeah, I wanted to share more of those pages but I’m not up to date and I didn’t get anything photographed, so that’s a no go.
As for my planner, I decorate after the fact, so my most recent pages aren’t all that exciting beyond being written in lots of fun colors! So that’s another future post I’ll be showing you – how I’m decorating and having fun with my daily planner.It's time to talk planners - when do you get a new one? Any tried and true favorites? #ontheblog #planning Click To Tweet
BUT – I don’t want to leave you with nothing, so today, let’s talk about new planners.
When do you buy a new planner?
I’ve been seeing people on social media – especially Instagram – showing off their new planners. I know some planners don’t start in January, but I kind of like the typical January-December calendar in a planner so those are the ones that I get. However, I’m sure I could get that type of planner calendar even now…I just need to start looking around more.
What do you do though? Have you gotten a new planner recently? When do you buy a planner for the new year?
For 2018, I bought my planner during some Black Friday sales. I might do that this year, but I’m not sure. I kind of like the idea of getting a planner soon so I can go ahead and get it set up for the new year and add in future dates that I already have. It would give me more time to get everything ready to go and I like that idea. Plus, if you like decorating things beforehand, you’d have more than enough time to do that!
I think I’m going to start looking. These past two years I got The Happy Planner and I love those, so I’ll probably go that route, but I might try something new. We’ll see! What type of planner do you get? Do you like trying new planners or do you have a tried and true favorite?
Let me know!!
