Erin Condren and Hobonichi Techo

I'm a vertical planner, I love lists and days that run top to bottom and it suits the way I plan. But I've just had a week where nothing has worked for me and I need a refresh. So armed with 2 planners that are not in my normal comfort zone I thought I would try something different for a week. I've chosen an Erin Condren Horizontal for my weekly overview and my Hobonichi Techo which is normally for recording my gratitude for my daily pages. This will be where my to dos, lists and notes go.

Erin Condren, Passion Planner and the evolution of my monthly layout

If there is one part of a planner that I have struggled with more than any other, it is the monthly spread. Starting with a bullet journal, I never had enough space to record everything that was going on and I just couldn’t make it work for a while.

The first planner I go was my Erin Condren Vertical – I say first… I’d already got the teacher planner. I was in limbo for a long time and was adding stickers for personal things that were going on – guides each week, then a few stickers for other events. It was always just a bit empty.

Hobonichi, Erin Condren and Penguin Joe help Sophie organise her business

Hello Planners & Stickeraters!

Today’s post is about how I use stickers to help with my business and my business planner.  I have my Hobonichi and my EC Hourly for my everyday planning. Then I also have a Hobonichi weeks. This planner doesn’t get photographed or shown on social media. Mainly because it’s messy with lots of scribble and not many stickers. So I don’t usually bother showing it. But this is one my most important planners – it’s for my Cake Business. So I’ve decided to share how my planners help me organise myself and my business and make sure I don’t forget anyone’s orders! And what stickers I use to do this.
