Do I really need anything else to obsess over?

So, I went and became obsessed with yet another organizational "tool". It's big. It's expensive. But it's soooo worth it. Or so I'm told. Mine isn't even here yet! -insert 'are you crazy' face-

Erin Condren Life Planners.

Yes, a planner.
I really try at the end of every year to find a planner for the next year that doesn't suck as bad as the year before. But none of them ever have enough SPACE. Well, enough space and still manage to fit in my purse. So, I found these amazing pieces of organizational heaven and wasted no time.

Once I sat down to research a little more, I realized there is a never ending stream of youtube videos, pinterest tutorials/examples, and ways to use your EC planner. I knew I wanted to utilize mine as a way to keep track of my weight loss progress for 2015. So I spent a little bit of down time that I had to make something to put into the back of my planner to serve as a diary and reminder at the same time. 

I took the images I put together to Office Depot and had them laminated in 5 mm. Cost me...barely $5 for both sheets? You can't beat it. I will use stickers on the jars to represent the pounds I want to lose, and hopefully continue to move them over week by week!

For the second sheet, I will just use permanent marker to write down my current weight each Monday.

The bottom sheet, I actually will turn into a sticker. The sticker will go right in my Monday slot of my weekly spread in my planner. I have a horrible memory and honestly forget to do what I need to, even something that I will be doing every Monday. So the sticker will help, not only remind me to take my stats, but to be able to see week by week how they have hopefully changed!

Have you thought about owning your own Erin Condren planner? I was so iffy about it, but even without it being here (I looked through a LOT of examples!) I'm in love. Use the referral code to sign up and you'll get an email for $10 off your first order!

I can't wait to share my new obsession with the rest of you :)

Pardon my dust!

I'm in the process of redoing the blog. But I'm not fancy enough to pay someone to do it for me. So it may take a while, but I will figure it out eventually! So just ignore all the random things in places that they probably don't belong :)
