  13. I use a paper planner and it's my absolute favorite way of doing it! I used to be a die-hard Palm Pilot girl and one day....the battery died. Not good. Since then I've been doing it "old school" and writing everything down. :)

  17. I am totally addicted to Erin Condren ever since I discovered her a few months back!

    I have an EC planner which I use religiously, but I also have an iPhone and use that for other things like budgets, contact information, and quick notes. Plus, I am a newbie to Pinterest (tatabex) and love scouring that site for organization ideas!

  18. I plan my life mostly using my iPhone, especially Cozi.

  19. I've tried to use the technology planners, but they never seem to work! While I teach, I think that the general Life Planner would suit me really well. I've been looking at my options to buy one and if I won the prize, that would rock!

  26. I am a nursing student, army wife and mommy to 1. I'm definitely a paper planner... I have a cheap planner from OfficeMax and a wall calendar to help keep my life straight. I've been looking at the Erin Condren Life Planner, and this is certainly something that would help me out. Between nursing school, clinical, daughter's activities, husband's training schedule, etc... I NEED something to help me out.

  48. With today's crazy world, and the many responsibilities we, as women, have in our lives, if I am not careful, I am very forgetful. That is why I use a calendar (a lot for work dates), an ongoing list, the calendar on my phone so it will beep at me to tell me to do something lol, and as an effort to keep my family's schedules organized, I have a desk calendar on the side of the refrigerator with appointments, practices, work dates, sthletic game times, etc. There are so many I have to use a large one. The entries are done in a different color felt pen so each individual entry can be seen easier. Thanks for your consideration. Gift certificate would be well used.

  55. Great Giveaway!! I just discovered the Erin Condren thanks to your blog! I have put off ordering one until after Christmas, but I dream about getting organized with the LifePlanner.
    I have used several different planners - I've tried just using my iPhone but always go back to the paper planner! I just like having the pages to flip through.

  56. I use a planner and I just started using those little sticky tabs to put what bill is due on each date. Once I pay it I move it to the next month so I know I have paid it - these student loans are out of control :).

  58. I use TONS of lists to stay organized. Many of which I create on half sheets so I can keep them in my planner which keeps me on track as well. I used to use an online calendar but it's much easier for me to write things as I go.

  59. I have so many ways to stay organized...wall calendars (3 to be exact), Day Planner, phone calendar, notes, etc. If I didn't have several ways to keep my days planned I would probably lose one of my seven kids. :oP

  63. I plan my life and my families life by using my calender on my Samsung galaxy phone. This calender is synced to my work calender. To keep me on track during the day my calender will remind me 15 min before I am to be some where so I never miss a meeting, and track my most important things to do for the day. To keep my family on track I write all activities on the fridge calender so they can see what the week brings. I also track all activity, food and water intake on my phone cause I am an avid WW fan. tuhanae@gmail.com

  64. I "try" to stay organized using a wall calendar. Just found this blog so am looking forward to keeping organized in the new year with my wall calendar and the downloads from your blog!! :)

  66. Paper all the way! I tried using my iPhone and Google calendar, but nothing beats pen to paper. I'm always so picky about my planners and I tried creating my own, but I can't get it to look cute enough. I recently have fallen in love with Erin Condren planners after reading dozens of reviews, this is the perfect planner for me!

    I use my Google calendar and an errands app all on my phone, but I know there has to be a better way. I love the portability, it's all the jumping around in pages and apps that gets me.

    ReplyDelete
  72. I use a combination of a planner and sticky notes. The planner stays in one location and I use sticky notes to jot things down through out the day so I can enter them into my planner all at once. I would just carry my planner around but the sticky notes fit so much better in some of my smaller purses.

  73. I already have a EC life planner, but it really gets overwhelming when all filled up with my school stuff! I think I'd like to add in another planner (EC weekly schedule pad!) for just my desk so that I can keep a better idea of JUST the current week!
    I wish I could go electronic...but there is something to be said for being able to color code!

  74. I already have an Erin Condren Life Planner but would really like to have a teacher planner. My planner is quickly being filled up between my personal life and teaching. I tried putting everything into my blackberry but that didn't work to well. I like the fact that everything is written down and color coded to make life just a bit easier!
