Snapshots | Getting Set Up for Success in 2013

I live in a world of organized chaos. Everything has a place, whether it makes sense to anyone else or not, it’s a place that works for me. I’m not a neat and tidy kinda girl but I try to be … and usually fail. But this year I NEED to get more organized especially when it comes my life as a professional blogger and just as much in my home & personal life. I started by purchasing The Blogging Planner (which should be here soon I hope).

And then I went digging through the Walmart home office department to get stocked up on stickies and Sharpies. Wish me luck!

    I am excited to see how your planner works for you! I had the first version earlier this year and I like it, I just am never really busy enough to need a planner. LOL I need more business to have something to write in it!

    I start off with planners and never follow through with them. I love new office supplies but find that just the sticky notes on my laptop are the best thing that works for me.

    I’m not a blogger but really need to get more organized this year.

        Well I did get one at Brandcation.. I actually have like 3 planners. But I don’t use it. I keep a doc on Drive with the blog posts I need to do… and then fill in my calender with deadlines or put them on the doc I make. I’m more of a digital girl. But maybe I’ll try to use the planner. :)

    I have been debating on getting that planner. I would love to hear your thoughts. I also need to get organized this year.

    so glad it’s working for you. Since I have a blog “partner” working on paper doesn’t work. I do use a notebook for my own ideas and lists but most of our stuff needs to be online. I’m so proud of this crazy smart and creative bunch of girls.

      I could definitely see how that would be tough. One of the reasons hubs and I don’t share a checkbook is because I can’t stand other people writing on my stuff. I’m knitpicky about handwriting. :P

    I have a calendar I use. I need to started on 2013 so we can stay on track!
    Good luck to being organized!

    What a great way to start the New Year! I love being able to make a fresh start with my calendars/organizers/etc. in January. Here’s to 2013!

    You are doing JUST what I need to be doing! Im curious to see how the planner works out for you, I need something like that to get myself organized.

    I love planners. I know they are old school but I just love being able to write things down. It sticks in my head that way. Hope you enjoy yours.

    I am totally trying to get organized for 2013. I used to use the BusyBody planner that isn’t published anymore so I am really thinking of ordering The Blogging Planner too! :)
