I have 4 planners for 2019. I’ll say it again…I have 4 planners for 2019.Yup! Still sounds crazy to me but I’m okay with that. Let me explain by sharing my 2019 planner lineup…
I’ve been an avid planner user for years, probably almost 20 years if I did the math. So I have a firm handle on the planner style that is best for me. Before the year began, I realized that stuffing all the things I was used to tracking into one planner was starting to feel a bit overwhelming for my 2019 planner lineup.
Why am I using 4 planners?
Tracking the family budget, my business, church stuff, and everyday life were a bit too much for one planner. That’s when I decided to compartmentalize, if you will. I decided to use a separate planner for each of those 4 functions. I can dedicate one book for each of these 4 areas of my life instead of having everything feel like a jumbled mess. This actually helps my sanity in so many ways. I’m no longer stressed out looking at the long list of research or editing I need to do for my Youtube channel when I have my daily planner open. And vice versa – I don’t need to see that there’s a dentist appointment coming up next Tuesday if I’m solely focused on scheduling appointments for church. I can shut off the part of life I’m not working on until I’m ready to see it again.

Here’s a video outlining each of the 4 planners in my 2019 planner lineup, some with a bit more detail than others. I hope you enjoy it. Also, please don’t forget to like the video, leave a comment, and subscribe to my channel for content like this.
Are you a planner? If so, what do you think about using multiple to corral all of life’s “stuff”? If you’re not a planner, why the heck not?! Seriously, I want to know. 🙂
