Join Planner Squad at the 2016 Midwest Planner Con!

I have a HUGE announcement! I’m so excited, and oh-so-nervous at the same time. This is the first time I’ve ever done anything like this, and I’m not sure if the fact that I can’t sit still is because I’m scared to death, or so stoked that I can’t wait for it to get here!

I can hear you now.. “Okay Jenn, get on with it already!” Okay, so here it goes! What is my big announcement? Well…

midwest planner con 16

I am officially going to be a speaker at the 2016 Midwest Planner Con!

Yep! That’s right! If you are going to this event you will be able to throw popcorn at me as I talk about myself.. Ha!! No but seriously, I am so super excited about this opportunity!

I’ve never been to a planner convention before,so this will be my first one! Of course in my own true fashion I jumped in head first and went straight to speaker! I know, I might be crazy.

I’m not one that likes to get up in front of big crowds, so don’t judge me if I start nervously rambling or talk super fast and my entire talk is over in 15 minutes (ha!! just kidding!)

Midwest Planner Con 2016

What is Midwest Planner Con 2016? Well, its a day full of meeting other planner girls, learning and being inspired from different speakers, and a whole lot of SWAG! (Can you say FREE planner goodies?!) There’s also going to be vendors, shopping, giveaways, and lunch! So basically, the perfect day! What planner girl wouldn’t want to get in on this deal?!

My Journey as a Planner Girl

I will be speaking about my journey as a planner girl! As a homeschooling  mom, blogger, small business owner and virtual assistant – my life is generally a chaotic hot mess! I’m going to share about how being a planner girl has helped me keep everything in check!

I’m also going to talk about how planning helps me with my anxiety. Planning is super therapeutic for me, so I’ll be sharing about how I use planning as a creative outlet to reduce stress and anxiety.

If you are a busy person like I am, you will definitely want to make sure you are in attendance!


There will be other amazing speakers there as well with plenty of valuable information to share! It’s going to be a day full of inspiration, building new friendships, creativity, and FUN! Oh yeah, did I mention FREE SWAG?!  (I’m just a little to excited about this stuff!)

So, what are you waiting for?! Go get those tickets now while you still can! There are a limited number of tickets available and will sell out fast – so hurry so you don’t miss out!

Are you planning on attending Midwest Planner Con 2016? We’d love to hear about it! At the conference make sure you stop me and say hi!

I can’t wait, it’s going to be a blast!

Planner Squad Swap – Sign up for July 2016

Do you like to get planner related goodies in your mail box? If so, the Planner Squad Swap is for you! Each month our Squadettes like to participate in a monthly swap that brings the happiness of planner related goodies straight to your mailbox! Want to know how you can participate in the next swap? Keep reading for more information!

Planner Squad Swap July 2016

How does the Planner Squad Swap work?

Basically, you fill out the form at the bottom of this page to send an email to our Swap leader (the infamous Sarita!) and she will pair you with your swap buddy. Then you and your swap buddy will each shop for and/or create planner related goodies to be packaged up and shipped to your partner! Swap partners are paired together – so whoever you are sending to, will be sending something to you in return.

Who can participate in the swaps?

Our swaps are only open to our awesome Squadettes (US ONLY!!). Want to be a Squadette too? Come join us in our awesome facebook group! [Yes – we will check if you are a member or not! If you’re not, then your email will go to the virtual trash can and you will not be allowed to participate. So make sure you join our fb group!]

What is the monthly limit we should spend on our swap partner?

Your swap package should be valued at $15. That may or may not including shipping, that is up to you. You are more than welcome to spend more on your swap partner if you would like, however that does not guarantee you will get the same amount in return. Do NOT send a package worth less than $15! (again, that can include shipping if you would like).

When is the deadline to sign up?

The swap signup deadline for the July 2016 swap is June 30th.

Okay, I signed up! When will I be assigned a swap partner?

Emails are generally sent out with your swap partners information around the 1st of every month. Check the facebook group for updates from Sarita, because she will share a list of who she has signed up for the swap. If you did not get an email, check your spam folder. If you still can’t find your email, contact Sarita to let her know.

Make sure to add plannersquadswap@gmail.com to your contacts and/or create a filter so your email will go to your inbox!

Is there a shipping deadline?

Yes. All swap packages MUST be shipped by July 15th. That gives everyone about two weeks to shop for their partner and put together a package, which is plenty of time. If for some reason you cannot get to the post office in time to ship your partners package, you MUST let Sarita and your swap partner know. Once you ship your package, please send your buddy the tracking number so they can look out for it!

Other things you should know as a Swap Participant

If you flake out on your partner and do not send a swap gift – you will be forever banned from the Planner Squad facebook group and no longer be allowed to participate in future swaps. Also, since partners are paired in groups of two – your swapper will know who their flaky swap partner was, which could ultimately end up in a bad reputation for yourself.

If you sign up – follow through. Zero tolerance for flaky swappers!

Also, do not wait to receive a package before sending yours. That’s not how it works! If everyone waited to receive a package before sending one in return – no one would ever get any packages! If you sign up – follow through!

If you still are unsure of what’s expected of you, watch this video in the group.


**Disclaimer: Planner Squad and Facebook is not responsible for any wrong doings that may happen during a swap. When you sign up – keep in mind that you are taking a risk. We have no way to force anyone to send packages. That means, if someone doesn’t follow through on their end of the deal – you may not end up with a package that month. While that really stinks and we try to avoid that as much as possible, we’re ultimately not responsible if you do not get a gift in return. By signing up you are telling us that you understand there is a possibility that you may not receive anything in return. If you do not receive a package by the end of the month – contact Sarita immediately to report it. We will not be chasing down your swap partner for you – that is your responsibility. 


Sign Up for the July 2016 Swap

*If you are returning from last month’s swap, you MUST still fill out the form below!

The sign up is closed for the July swap! Sign ups for the August swap will begin July 17, 2016!

Happy Swapping!

Recollections Planner Giveaway

You Guys! There’s a new planner in town! Yep, that’s right. Michael’s has come out with their own Recollections Planner and I can’t wait to show it off to you!

Recollections Planner Giveaway

Introducing the Recollections Planner

These planners are so cute! They are personal sized 6-ring leather binders with different insert options, including themed booklets. Some of the themed booklets help you plan everything from your budget and meal plan, to your to-do lists and other important information.

The Recollections planner is so versatile that you can literally plan anything and everything in it! Here’s a picture of what it looks like on the inside:

Recollections Planner Giveaway

The leather binder has pockets on the left hand side (one big one, and 4 little ones) and on the right hand side there is a big pocket and a pocket to insert a list pad. There is also a leather pen holder as well.

Each planner comes with three decorative tab dividers, to-do inserts, and both graph and lined paper inserts. You can also choose from a variety of different 12 month calendar packs that are super cute too!

Recollections Planner Giveaway

If you want to give your planner a little flair, there are plenty of super cute tassels to choose from as well! Check out this super cute pink tassel with a gold pineapple charm! (I’m seriously obsessed with pineapples these days!)

Recollections Planner Giveaway

The best part though is the cost of these planners. They are so inexpensive! Everything is priced at $20 or less, and that’s before coupon! Talk about a great deal! You can buy the binder, inserts, and a charm and still pay less than  you would for the Carpe Diem, or the Color Crush Binders. Crazy affordable option when you want the look and feel of a leather binder without breaking the bank!

Enter to WIN!

As soon as I saw this in store the last time I went on a Michael’s run, I immediately thought of our Squadettes and knew we had to get one for a giveaway! Yep – you got that right – it’s time for another Planner Squad giveaway!

One lucky Squadette will win one Recollections planner, 12 Month Calendar Pack (with both monthly and weekly views) and matching planner charm with tassel! Basically, the giveaway includes everything in the picture below:

Recollections Planner Giveaway

Awesome right?! Go ahead, I know you’re dying to enter! Fill out the form below to enter to win this amazing giveaway! We will choose a winner on June 30, 2016 and announce the winner in the newsletter! Good luck to everyone who enters!
