7 Reasons why you need a planner

I love to be organized. I love to know where everything is. No my house is not super super clean, it is comfortably clean that I don't mind if someone stops by for a visit (just don't look to long at my carpet, I do have two boys).

I am a planner. I love to plan events ahead of time. I love to write it down. Remember it. In the past I have tried to use a wall calendar and it just didn't work for me. I would have a wall calendar with events, a memo pad with to-do's and a notebook with my goals for the week. Frustrating to carry it back and forth and also never being able to take it with me when I left my home.

Then I got a smartphone and I marked it on my calendar and wrote my to-dos on my notes in the phone. That worked for awhile but I always love to write stuff down and not always type it in.

That is when I found this planner - The Day Designer. Don't be scared off by the price, you honestly get your money for it.
So today I want to share with you:


1. Keep yourself somewhat organized. Even if you are a little organized it helps! Have you ever noticed if your bed is made and there are no dishes in the sink how much less stressed you feel? That is what a planner can do for you. Keep you organized and take stress out of your life.

2. Remember! I have the post-momma brain. I forget things, doctor appts, play-dates, lunch dates! When I have a planner I write it down and it helps me remember.

3. On the go. If you have a planner and not a wall calendar or a notebook with dates scribbled all over, you can take it with you. Place it in your diaper bag or purse and go!

4. Make plans right then. Ever been talking to a friend and trying to plan an event for the future together? Well if you have a planner with you, you can! You won't need to "check your calendar" or anything. (I still check with my husband but I will know if I am free that day).

5. Never forget where to go. Ever forget your list at home and are running errands? I did before I got my planner. I would forget what I meant to pick up or where I needed to go. Now I don't:)

6. Review Goals. Write your goals for the year in your planner and review them from time to time. You always have them right with you.

7. They are so cute! There are so many planners out there that are so adorable! I loved looking at all the different ones when I was looking this past summer.

Here is a list of planners I have found that are definitely worth it to try and get!
