10 Unique Ways You May Love Using Your Planner

1.  Track your Mood

Tracking your mood daily.  With a simple emoticon, like a happy face, sad face, grumpy face, pissy face.  So, when your family says “You’ve been crabby lately,” you can flip open your planner, point out those happy faces, and reply, “Nope, I don’t thiiiiiiink so!”

 

2.  Gratitude 

I fail here a lot.  It’s not that I’m not thankful, but I need to be more disciplined in taking note of it. Go back over your past weeks and find what you were thankful for. Set a reminder for the next week ahead to send a card, email, or call someone just to thank them. It will go a long way for both of you.

 

3.  Health & Symptoms

I have Hashimotos and complicated migraines.  I can tell when my levels are off,  just by glancing in my planner.  Track your meds and symptoms. No, this has nothing to do with tracking my mood…grumble…see happy faces in my planner…(sticking out tongue).

 

4.  Volunteer Work & Donations

Everyone can help a little more. You’ve been meaning to…well, write it dow! Plan it. If you plan it, you will do it.  I have a monthly plan to donate things around the house.  I need to continually downsize and it’s a perfect time to share clothes, appliances, and toys not being used.

 

5.  Memories

Go back and note memories of the day in empty spaces in your planner. Those little tid bits that made you smile. This turns your planner into more than a planner.  It’s like a brief history of life’s little journeys. So, when your child asks, “Can we get a kitten?” and you reply, “I’m allergic, we can’t be in the same house.” and they reply back, “That’s ok you can sleep outside.” Yeah…priceless.

 

6.  Yard, Garden, & Indoor Plants

Time to spray? Water? Yep, it’s all in my planner! My cactus truly believed it lived in a desert until I started to water regularly.

 

7.  Household maintenance 

We know you schedule your cleaning and laundry, but how about changing air filters, washing outside windows, air-conditioning/heater maintenance, and cleaning out those house vents?  You can actually save your families lives by scheduling to clean your dryer vents and to change fire alarm batteries to help to prevent potential fires.

 

8.  Crafts 

I could collect Pinterest pictures until the cows come home but I’m on craft picture overload. I list the projects I plan to do, the materials required, and check them off the list. Typically, I will use the sidebar in my planner for this if I only plan one project for the week.  Yeah right!  Insert more sidebars here;)

 

9.  No Spend Goals

Do you find yourself a collector of crafting supplies, an Amazon junkie or a Target $1 bin dumpster diver? Me too. I have a huge tendency to overspend. Putting spend limits in my planner or no spend weekly goals in my calendar helps me keep some control.  Except when buying stickers from Planner Squad…it’s ok to get stickers from Planner Squad…I’m just saying…some things just shouldn’t be banned…

 

10.  Blog Stats, Posts, & Social Media

Are you a blogger, a pinner, or a socialite spinner? Use your planner for Blog stats,  Blog Posts, and Social media posts!  I have started using my Blog Planner Insert—designed especially for my planner for blog tracking.  It’s a tad easier if you track it in your planner or better yet if you try the Blog Planner Inserts  because there is more room for writing and tracking your posts.

The Blog Planner Insert set comes with adorable tracking stickers and a dashboard, too! You can punch and add them anywhere you want into your planner.

Why Every Tomboy Needs A Planner

Find out why every tomboy needs a planner! Planners don't have to be girly or cute. Includes an awesome FREE printable pack of Tomboy-themed planner resources!

Planner Squad is happy to share this contribution from Lady T, an artist and graphic design specialist.  Find out why Lady T believes every tomboy needs a planner and check out these awesome free planner printables.


Hi! I am honored to share some insight with you today.  A planner is the perfect addition to every female’s life even if she can be found at a local bar, watching Monday Night Football with her brothers.

But, planners are dumb, right? It’s just a glorified diary, isn’t it? Only girly girls keep a diary! As a girl who likes to live life on the fly, forgets everything including her own

As a girl who likes to live life on the fly, forgets everything including her own birthday, and barely has time to slide mules on her UN-manicured feet while flying out the door…how can a planner help her?

Why Every Tomboy Needs A Planner

1. Planners come in fun designs to fit HER personality.

First, let’s start with the fact that there are so many planners out there! There is bound to be one that will fit the Tomboy personality. No PINK  and FLOWERS here, please!  Thanks to the

Thanks to the ever-growing planner craze, planners are available in so many patterns, colors, sizes and shapes. One type of planner will surely appeal to our tree climbing hero. Even Wonder Woman wears lipstick!

If you do not like the covers on your planners, make one yourself and change it. Yes, you can do that!

There are not enough Tomboy and masculine-themed Planner stickers out there. To remedy that situation, you will find a free Tomboy Hero printable pack that includes a planner sticker set and a new cover.

Just print the covers, place them back to back, laminate, trim and punch for your specific planner. This free Tomboy Hero printable pack works for a variety of planner types and sizes. More information is included with the set for printing options.

2. You can deck your planner out with stickers!

Remember the days of decorating your locker, three ring binder, and textbooks? Decorating my planner takes me back to my middle school days. I put hundreds of stickers on the cover! I would then take a marker and trace around them several thousand times. Oh and doodling! The Tomboy can do all of that if she wishes! Nothing like stepping back in time to childhood and making the planner process fun and inviting to use. Go crazy let your inner Garbage Pail Kid out! There is no wrong or right way to decorate your planner. It’s not a diary per se-more like a detailed journey of your life or a time capsule, if you will.

3.  Secretly you have been dying to get control of your life.

One day, this Tomboy even beat up a male classmate who was picking on her brother. Though she became more “girly” in college, buying makeup, jewelry, and an occasional dress (where is that anyway?), she grew up and continually tried to put organizational practices in place to no avail.

That was until she came upon a planner that had places for notes, birthdays, a week view, a month view, and structure. It was editable, it was fun, and it was supported by a community of amazing and passionate people—where life could be shared one sticker at a time.

Set aside ten minutes a day to use your planner.  In a busy Tomboy’s life, this small amount of time will help you learn to organize a little bit better and a little bit smarter.

How do I know using a planner can help you if you are a Tomboy? Because I am a one and I can’t live without it! Try it!

Born in the Chicagoland area―titled by land ownership in Scotland, she took to art as soon as she was able to hold a crayon. Throughout her childhood, she developed an appreciation for her majestic surroundings. “I would often sit in trees for hours with pencils and pad, or sit in a meadow with watercolor and canvas.”  Years of artistic expression made it clear that LadyT’s life would be centered upon her passion for art.  After high school;  where she participated in three years of extensive extracurricular graphic-design programs, she attended Graphic Art College where she got her degree and discovered more advanced graphics, illustration, writing and printmaking.
