10+ Reasons to Love Your Planner!

1.  Organization:  I’ll be the first to admit that I’m a bit squirrely and spacey.  And with good reason.  I’m usually spinning at least a few plates at a time with homeschooling five boys, two blogs, and serving as a domestic engineer (or whatever the new hip term is to describe all the tasks that a stay-at-home mom does!).

2.  Sanity Saving:  See above for my reasons for needing multiple planners.  My planners are my go-to places to brain dump, create to-do lists, and basically keep my brain from exploding.

3.  Feminine:  I need something that’s just for me, you know?  As the only female in a house filled with testosterone (hubby, five boys, male dog, male bird, male fish), I must have something that represents being a woman.  My planners can be as girly, frilly, and pink as I want them to be!

4.  Creative Outlet:  My planners provide a place to let my creative juices flow.  I get to recharge and replenish.  Planners help me feel like a human being again after a long day.

5.  Portable:  It feels like we are constantly on-the-go.  I must have a way to carry around my 553 checklists and reminders!  I don’t care for online planning systems.  Bleh!  Give me pretty paper and pens any day!

6.  Variety:  It’s the spice of life, right?  So many beautiful supplies!  So many gorgeous layouts and spreads!

7.  Dependable:  My planners are always there for me.  Well, at least when I remember to bring them along for the car ride 😉  But, no matter what, my planners are there for me when I return home and need some relaxation time by myself.

8.  Fashionable:  I am not known for my trendy styles or being a fashionista.  Tomboy or casual are my favorites.  My planners, however, are always looking snazzy with their decorative clips, washi tape, and stickers.

9.  Flexible:  I mentioned my busy life.  Yeah, it gets cray-cray.  And, sadly, that means that my planning time is not always what I’d like it to be every week.  I love how I can adjust the amount I decorate my planners according to what time is available.  What’s that famous planning saying?  “The rules are there ain’t no rules.”  And if that’s not a saying, it should be!

10.  My Brain:  On days when an insidious fog descends upon my brain, I can turn to my trusted planners to back me up.  It’s quite lovely to know that all of our schedules, appointments, errands, and other tasks are all right there, even if my brain is not.

It’s your turn!  Share all the reasons that you love your planner in the comments below.

    I love my planner for all of the reasons you listed above! It’s great for my both my physical health, as I use mine to track symptoms for my chronic health conditions, and my mental health! Using my planner is a great way for me to stay centered!

    Reasons I love my planners is that it keeps me sane. I have my journal/diary, whenever something made me sad or happy, I write. Sometime letters or anything I want off my chest. Then I have my other planner book where I put all those things I need to remember like my monthly bills (fixed amounts) I need to pay every 15 days or monthly, those beauty regimens I need to remember among other things. I also got my financial tracker and my gratitude planner and so forth. Even the tv shows I always watch are listed in my everyday planner. So as you can see, my whole life depends on it… lol it organizes my thoughts, my schedules, helps me remember important dates and other stuff. And of course, I enjoy decorating it with my washis and stickers too. I just need to practice my creativity and let it all out to make my planners really pretty like the ones I see here.

    Ohhhh! I forgot to add, it pacifies my emotions like there was a time I was so depressed I just took out my planners, started decorating each page for about an hour or so and I felt good and normal again. So it’s like a companion and friend to me. It lifts me up when I’m down. so to speak.

    I love my planner because it is mine! There’s no rules, no standard to uphold, no guidelines to follow. It can be anything and everything I want it to be and when I get bored or just need a change it’s not hard or expensive to do that either!! I love the flexibility of it all and the down time I enjoy by just sitting and creating or decorating or organizing or rearranging it!! PLUS, it makes me appear like the SUPERMOM of organization (which I am SO NOT) in all areas of my life from mom-life to personal to work to ministry. Whatever it is all together in one adorably washi taped, sticker invaded, masterpiece!!! Next to Jesus ain’t nothing better for me!!!
