2020 Planner

I am SO ready to start using the 2020 planner! I did decide to go a size up in planner size. For 2019, I used B6 stalogy along with rustic traveler’s notebook (LOVE IT!). After reviewing the last few months; I realized I needed to go a size up in planner.

I have included supply list and where it was purchased from. Hopefully this will give you some ideas on what may work for you! It was a hit and miss with the planner system; I think I’ve found my planner peace! The thing with the planner world is that it is always changing so it’s very fluid. You change things up as you go when you realize certain part isn’t working for you. There is NO right or wrong way of how you plan!

For 2020 planner; I have chose to go with those following

Hobonichi Cousin 2020 (in Japanese version and it is A5).

Planner cover is Rustic Wanderer Traveler’s Notebook from Etsy. I highly recommend this lady. The wait is about 3-4 weeks, but WORTH IT!

Personalized Purse for Women Planner Pouch A5 – there are tons of fabric/design to pick from!

Thin Blue Hobonichi Notebook – I can’t remember where I got it from 🙁 I wanted to say JetPens or Amazon but neither are showing up in my orders list. This notebook is planned for “morning journaling” but that MAY change. I’m not so sure on this yet!

White Idea Book (B6 Slim) I actually took that from the Jibun Techno planner (it’s a 3 part and the other wasn’t working for me so I took the idea book and stuck it in this cover). My plan for this notebook is to write down when I’m on an important calls where I need to write down names, time/dates and what it is related to.

Benefits of Time-Blocking

Keeping a planner is one of those good idea because it also give you the benefit of time-blocking your schedule. It does not only maximize your time, but applies for productivity. Also, so you’re not having tons of tasks running all over your mind and trying to keep track of it. I currently have quite several planners (6 to this date and each has their own agendas).

How to make your planner work; you will need to recognize the time you need to complete your specific task. Mark your time and give yourself some wiggle room for unexpected task or appointments. Don’t pack all into allotted time so you can focus on specific tasks without error.

Time-blocking does help you meet your personal and business goals and still have time for your family, friends and fun – times. It has help me a lot due to the fact that I manage 7-8 different schedules in this household and one is my husband’s 94 years old grandmother. 🙂 . It has been a huge help being able to schedule my time around everything and still get things done within reasonable time. Although, there has been quite a few times where I have moved specific tasks to the next day as the allotted time wasn’t enough to complete that.
