Start Planner, Plus a Giveaway

This post is being sponsored by Start Planner, all opinions are my own. 

Hello my name is Beth and I am a planner. I’m pretty sure it all started as a young girl who loved to make lists. Hand in the air if you too are guilty of writing something down (possibly something that you have already done) just so you can cross it off?! I know there is absolutely no way in the world this one is just me

My love for lists and organization has more recently turned into a love for planners. It took me a little while to get to used to the idea of having my brain outside of my body. But after taking the leap, I will never go back. However, there are a couple of things that I have learned  about planners over the past couple of years. 

#1 Planners can be a great asset if you use them consistently and to their greatest potential.
#2 Not all planners are the same. (This one is worth repeating.)

I was recently introduced to Start Planner and it was love at first sight. Besides the fact that their planners are beautiful, just look at that gold binding, they offer everything I could ever want in a planner. I’m talking goals, finances, gifts, addresses, grocery list as well as my schedule and more! I may never miss a birthday or deadline again, as long as I remember to write them down ;).

I cant wait to organize our life and my blog business in this amazing planner in 2017! Something tells me I am going to need more organization than ever in the coming year and life is always full of goals to crush.

2017, I am ready!
Find out more about my planner here!

    My goal is actually pretty funny. I want to actually use my planner correctly. I get started and then fizzle out. Ha ha!

    • Love it! I used to be the exact same way friend.

  • Amy Smith

    Planners make me so happy, too! We all have colors. haha! Like Jess, I’d actually like to use it correctly & stick with with. Another goal I have is to have more of a consistent work out routine.

    • LOVE the color idea. I have thought A LOT about planning more with colors and/ or stickers! You can do it Amy!

  • Love me some planners! This one looks absolutely awesome

  • Yup, I’m the same: I love me a good list. Plans are my jam. I may have bought a planner for next year just for le blog.

    • That is exactly what I am planning on using this one for!

  • Meghan Flinn

    I’m such a list maker and used to love a physical planner, but now I seem to prefer digital. I bought a beautiful planner for 2016 and never used it. I was so bummed to find it in a pile last week and see that it was wasted. This post tempted me again… It’s seriously looks awesome! But I’m trying to be more realistic and not buy stuff I won’t use. So hard for me 😉

    • It is funny to me how it really is just a preference. I can’t even imagine using a digital planner. I like to have something physical. The only thing I would like about digital would be the reminders.

  • I think one day I’ll make the transition to digital planning but for now, I need a planner. I need to see it in writing. The process of planning our week out, writing it all down helps it stick in my mind. I’m a very visual person. Once I write it, read it or see it, I’m more likely to recall it. Hence why I will forever love having a paper planner.

    • Oh man, I just don’t think I ever could do that for all of the reasons you just listed.

  • Lizzie Simantz

    I always use a planner, I cannot do the whole online, phone calendar thing, it has to be on paper. This planner looks awesome! I have goals to be more organized at our house in 2017 and not accumulate so much crap!!

    • YES! I would HATE a digital planner. I want something I can see and touch for sure. I could definitely benefit from a goal like that too!

  • Nichole H

    My goal is to be more organized so I am not rushing around from place to place and not being able to enjoy the little things.

    • Oh man soaking up the little things. SO importanty. Love that goal.

  • I have a planner and I love it. I actually chose a new type for 2017 and I have to get used to it!

    • That is how I am with this one right now. Definitely adjusting a bit.

  • One of my goals is to start doing a little homeschooling with my son each week.

    • The homeschool mom in me is BEAMING right now :).

  • The Gilded Wife

    This planner is everything! Looks so professional and I love that its filled with checklists for just about anything 🙂 even has tabs! #winning

    • My thoughts exactly. It is pretty much amazing.

  • I want to be better with planning my days…possibly by time-blocking? So I can focus on just one task at a time.

    I would also like to create more printables for my blog. And lose the pregnancy weight. 🙂

    • I would love to better at time blocking too. I feel like our days are pretty consistent, but giving myself x amount of time and just moving on would be refreshing.

  • Alexa

    Goal for 2017…..
    Put myself out there more. Spend more days going outside and soaking up the sun, make more memories and don’t be afraid to let go of people who are toxic in my life!

    • YES! Take out the trash and get rid of the toxic waste :).

  • Andrea Kay

    Be more organized!!!

    • Which is why you need to win :P.

      • Andrea Kay

        Thank you!

  • Meegan

    My goal is to be more open to new experiences!

    • That is another great one. We could all benefit from being more open.

  • My goal is to knit my first sweater.

    • Aaaahhh, love it! I used to knit A LOT! I made 6 sweaters actually!

  • This planner looks great! One of my goals is to drink more water.

  • Aaaand this is reason number 4,583,505 why I love you. There is nothing better than a crisp new planner just waiting to be written in! I have been a list maker since I was old enough to write and I ADORE notebooks, notepads, planners, office supplies, you name it! A new planner makes January a hundred times more exciting!

    • I was almost nervous to start writing in this one :P. That’s how you know a good planner when you see one!

  • Eeeek! I so want a new planner! I’ll have to enter when I can get to my computer!!

  • goal, getting my blogging stuff organized (hence the need for a better planner) 😉

  • Michelle

    My main goal is to finally start a blog! I’ve been wanting to for years, and I finally put in the hard-core, motivating research recently. Next step: begin!

    • You should totally go for it! Take the leap and don’t look back.

  • My hand is proudly WAVING!! 😉 Planners are my life. And thats not an exaggeration lol. I want to focus on my IG growth next year and some blog updates.

    • IG growth, me too! I would love to hit 5K by this time next year!

  • What a great giveaway! I’m totally a planner girl over there too and have the HARDEST time finding one I love. This one sounds great!

    • This one is way more thorough than anyone I have ever used. I am pretty excited about that too!

  • Penelope W

    My 2017 goal is finish our home renovation!!!

    • I bet finishing that up is going to feel amazing!

  • I want to move!

  • My goal is to blog consistently 2-3 times a week!

  • Ashley Bree Perez

    One goal I have set for 2017 is to get in shape and lose weight. (:

  • I am definitely a “write it down so I can cross it off” girl. No shame in that game! 🙂 One of my goals for 2017 is to continue the healthy eating habits I started this fall.

    • That is a great plan. I need to get back on track myself… after the holidays that is :P.

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    I love a good planner, but a goal would be to find one I truly like and use. I have one that I’ll occasionally remember to use, but most of the time it sits all lonely by the computer.

    • I used to be that way but anymore I keep mine open 24/7. It helps to keep me sane!

  • Kelly M.

    I would love to be more organized in 2017 🙂

    • This would definitely help out with that :).

  • This is a cute planner, definitely would give me all the right feels when trying to stay organized. I am going to try to do that more this year. Here’s to a more organized me 🙂

  • chall1018

    This planner looks awesome! I really want to be more organized in 2017 and do things early instead of the week (or night before)!

    • The struggle is oh so real friend. Here is hoping a little more organization finds its way to you :).

  • That planner is awesome! I bought a planner for 2016 but ended up using it to write one sentence about my day, every day. I love reading back on it now at the end of the year! My goal for next year is blog more and READ more!

    • That is a super cute idea Kaley! Love those goals too!

  • jubi

    i am aiming to get my license by 2017 and a planner would help me organize my time with chores and studying.thanks for the chance

  • Tracie Cooper

    I am hoping to improve my finances and start saving for the future. My email is

  • Heather Bramlett

    I have never heard of this planner! I am going to check it out!
    I am a planner nerd all the way! HA

  • Caroyn Clifton

    one goal I have for the coming year is perseverance. I start things off great, then lose interest or pick up something else until I have more things going than I can handle! I want to learn to finish what I start – for the great give-away!

    • That is a WONDERFUL goal. There is something to be said about really getting done what you set out to do. Best of luck to you!
