New Year Binder Planner

How do you prepare for the New Year?

I thought I’d share some of my favorite ways I get my planner, household binder ready for the New Year since 2018 is coming up quick!

Also, I’d love to share how I prepare my heart and our family’s goals for the coming year, so read on if you are already thinking on into January! ūüôā

I know EVERYTHING is turning to technology and it really is amazing.

We use a calendar app on our phones that links my husband and I together, which is so helpful when we aren’t at home. But I am still very old school when it comes to how much I LOVE binders and to do lists and such.

I’ve had a master house hold binder for a few years and every year it changes a bit. You really want to personalize it the way you need it to work for you. And those needs change as your family grows and changes.

A couple years ago I had a section dedicated to pre-school and what I wanted to accomplish with the boys. That isn’t really necessary now that we are in a charter school and it is all kept either online or included in our curriculum.

There are lot of beautiful planners out there, ready-made and some customization if you are wanting to just order something. But building my own with printables here at home has really worked for me!

You really need to think about what you want to use your binder for.. what are some of the goals you want it to help you reach… and what areas do you need to stay organized in?

Designerblogs.com is seriously the best of both worlds in that you can get a complete and pretty extensive planner BUT you still print at home for the best customization possible, you only print what you want to use, so you aren’t left with a binder that doesn’t work for you! Isn’t that great? and just look at how beautiful these pages are??!!!

Check out all the pages included in the Ultimate Life Planner! 

Here’s the description for the ultimate life planner:

“Using the My Life Planner is the best way to declutter your mind, develop rock solid habits, and crush your goals! The planner includes everything you need to stay organized throughout the entire year! Mix and match these planner pages with the pages in¬†The Ultimate Blog Planner¬†and you‚Äôll be nothing but unstoppable this year! “

Look at what all is included in the advanced package of the ultimate Life Planner:

The planner includes 50 meticulously designed pages of organizational goodness! Here’s a look at what you’ll receive:  

  • CELEBRATIONS

¬†This really has everything and more that I’m looking for in a planner.¬†

 I would have never thought about tracking things like my workouts in a designated area.. how motivating will it be to see it all filling up!??!

First thing in my binder is always the monthly calendar pages!

I find that even though I have a calendar updated on my phone all the time.. it is nice to just see a whole month in front of me!

There’s also some weekly reminder pages, to do lists.. etc.

Usually every year I will print a couple of something new like a to do list or weekly schedule or something and give it a test run before I print very  many of them.

Cleaning schedules are helpful too and you can have an entire section dedicated to it. Things like those chores that need only to be done once a month or twice a year…

This year I’m adding a blog planner section to my binder ( I tried a seperate binder last year but I think it will work better to have it all in one) I am really trying to make 2018 be a great year for Loveandscribbles and I know I need to be more organized and scheduled.¬† I love how the pages on designblogs.com fit right in with the Life Planner!

2018 Blog Planner - DesignerBlogs.com 

planner 2018

Binders, printables, and accessories are the simple things that help me feel like I can tackle the New Year!  And in complete nerd fashion.. Office supplies are some of my favorite things! 

It’s funny how a nice pen or pretty binder can motivate me to stay organzed or at least try!¬†

If you are still with me in this long blog post, thanks for sticking around! I hope some of these ideas and resources can be helpful for you as you head into 2018! 

Remember I said there was one more thing that I hoped to share about coming into the New Year. 

 

  I love to journal and I really love looking back at what we were doing on any given day a year, two, or even three years ago. 

One thing I’ve found to be super fun and motivating is to list our goals of the new year.. Both individually for each of us and as a whole family!¬†¬†

I just found last years and really enjoyed looking at how much of the list we had actually accomplished.

Sometimes indivually goals are pretty practical (coming of age) sort of things. Like a boy needs to be potty trained or we need to say goodbye to pacifiers or something similar. I also like to try to think of fun goals too.. like maybe investing in an interest that we’ve noticed etc.¬†

Ryan and I might set goals regarding our budget or a goal to go on more dates, 

For family goals they tend to be mostly practical as well.. items we want to do to our home or adventures/trips we hope to have, 

Writing it all down on one sheet of paper,¬†can really be fun to look at throughout the year to remind yourself of the big pictures. And if your kids are old enough you could even set these goals during a family meeting! And don’t worry if 2018 has already started when you are reading this.. It’s not to late to have a great year!¬†

 

Thanks for sticking with me on this long post.. I hope you have an awesome New Year and that 2018 is full of Hope, Joy, Love, and Peace,

Deanna Grace
