Why I love paper planners, let’s get organized

I love the calendar on my phone.That is when I remember that I have one. Usually, i am fumbling through my purse trying to find a piece of paper to write an important date. Even though I have a Samsung note 8. Which has a note taking software and apps.

I love my paper planners, and for the life of me can not understand why I stopped using them. Was it the pressure of trying to go all tech? Probably, since I was made fun of for my archaic use of a paper planner as opposed to using the phone’s calendar.

Getting organized is easy with a paper planner. I keep better track of my to do list, my groceries, my finances, and time with a paper planner. Yes, the calendar app has a lot of uses, but there is something to be said about physically writing it down vs just typing it.

So, originally years ago when Franklin Covey was more available, I had several of their planners. And loved them. And Franklin Covey is how I learned how to organize my day to day better.

Example: list things you need to do order them in a, b,and c etc. As you complete each task do a check mark and circle it done. For the tasks you dont complete move to the next day and put as A.

These are the kinds of things I did all the time. But I have let it slack, just like everything else. And honestly I feel scattered brain. I use my phone, but I feel so out of it when it comes to organization.

So, when I saw the above planner at Walmart during a school supply run, I felt compelled to get it. To get this planner and get my organized life back!

Getting organized doesn’t have to be a pain, And ย it is truly about what makes you feel more comfortable. Whether it is through your phone, you iPad, or a good old fashioned paper planner. You can get organized you can remember dates. And you will find yourself feeling better about it. Just be sure to get some cute and Instagram worthy stationary.

    I used to be way to lazy to organise things in a planner, but these days I finally begun to and it really has helped me to learn to prioritise certain things and actually not be so lazy! Planning is now something I couldn’t live without haha

    I love using a paper planner. I am not a tech type person and I like how on paper it never runs out of charge when I’m in the middle of writing down an appointment.

      I like it because writing it down puts it more into memory
