Monthly Review in Erin Condren by Sophie Ball

One of my biggest planner fails is stickerating a section of my planner and never going back and updating it. Mainly the monthly pages! Oops! I’ll buy a new monthly kit, set it all up for the month so any appointments, birthdays, recycling/bin collections and any other regular events for the month. These don’t tend to be my neatest, tidiest pages as they’re my planning my planner pages. Then completely forget to go back and update it over the month. So what can I do to not forget to do this? It certainly feels like a waste of stickers and my time if it gets neglected.

Erin Condren and Hobonichi and Tracy's favourite stickers

Before I joined the wonderful planner community early in 2018, I had always kept a “home diary” in the kitchen, and jotted things down so that my husband and I would have a rough idea of what we were supposed to be doing, and when. These diaries were usually A5 and in all honesty rather dull, messy and uninspiring. In fact, it was rare that I kept one going for more than a few months because I lost interest.

New 2019/2020 EC Planner and Hobonichi Avec

I thought that my first week in my new 2019/2020 EC would set up like any other week .....besides the squealing over the smell of new paper, new stickies, new layouts....you get the drift. But actually although the changes this year appear subtle they made me think about some of the things I normally do.
