Planners and Journals – The mid-2017 review

It’s that time of the year. 6 months have flown by and we are all half a year older, some with a lot to show for it, some (like me) with nothing to account for.  I say this every year, but this half year has been exceptionally tough for me, due to the job change. My journals, planners, and this blog, have unfortunately, suffered from lack of attention.

Still, it’s time to invest some TLC back into what I have been using, if any changes are needed for the second bit of 2017, and how that is going to affect what I will be using in 2018!

Because of the sore lack of use of the Moleskine Daily planner, I am now cheating and using several pages in it to plan for this series of blog posts.  Work is still crazy, so this may take some time.

But in the meantime, if you can’t wait, take a step back and look at how I started planner planning (oy vey) in my Planning for 2016 blog series.

Planner Setup for 2016

After all that talk about planner setups for 2016, it’s finally at a stage where I like, but be warned, the setup is still in flux (ha!)

Planning for 2016 (Part 3) – Tracking Your LIfe

After getting into the Bullet Journal and daily journaling habit this year (and watching too many planner and journal-related Youtube videos), I now also feel a keen need to track my life and habits. Some find it pointless or useless, others might say use an app. I find it helpful to be able to look back and know how much you I spent on stationery, or how many times you I ate unhealthy fried chicken last month.
