Happy New Years! I feel like New Years is a time of reflection and goal setting. The holidays have been crazy and I’m ready to get back on the grind. Some of my goals for the new year is to make more consistent blog posts and YouTube videos. Believe it or not, a lot of behind the scenes prep happens before content gets released…and I’m a 1 woman show. I do all my own planning, research, shopping for supplies, filming, photography, editing, marketing, I manage all my social media accounts, etc…As my business continues to grow-more things get added onto the list and I am finding a greater need to keep my home, business, family, and personal life organized so that I can be productive, and essentially, the best me that I can be. So today I am sharing some of the things I am doing to make 2017 less stressful, more organized, and more productive.
KIDS CALENDAR “CHORE CHART”
I’m always looking for ways to let Jayli feel independent and motivated. found this calendar at Dollar Tree and Jayli picked out the design. Jayli’s goal is to fill the whole month up with stickers. She will get a sticker a day if she does good at school, completes her chores (without me having to nag), and has a good attitude.
I’ll more than likely get her a beanie boo at the end of the month if she fills the whole month up wit stickers. Hey, bribery works around here. If you have any tips/tricks that you use for your kids that work around your house, send them my way! I need to know! I’ll keep you all updated on this method and if it works the way we intend it to.
Smiley stickers / Dollar Tree Calendar
Where my 90 girls at!? I found this caboodle at Goodwill for $1.99! I plan on using it for my makeup. I plan on cleaning it out, deckin’ it out with stickers, and gluing a peace sign emblem onto the opening tab. It’s gonna be so dope. I had a purple caboodle with glitter on it in elementary. So nostalgic.

I might even try to hunt down more of them so I can store my tools, fabric, stickers, etc..!
Burlington and TJ MAXX seems to have these clear acrylics organizers in stock all the time. As my makeup brush collection has grown, I needed to get a new organizer. I picked this up for $9.99 and my makeup brushes fit perfectly in here. You can use these not only for brushes but art supplies, tools, etc…
This appears to be the holy grail for organizing. I received this planner from Personal-Planner and I got to customize the size, layout, colors, tasks, front and back covers, front and back pages, the colors, etc…I was never big into planners, but I realize how important it is to be organized the more responsibilities I take on.
It came with these perfect little stickers,too!
I am not a fan of those calendars that only give you a small box to write in. I chose this layout with time stamps (optional) so that I would have more room to write everything I need to complete within the day/week.
At the bottom of the planner, I picked which tasks I wanted to include. I love how they have boxes to check after you have completed them = more motivation! Even the colors of the boxes can be customized.
Me and this planner are gonna make good memories.
Again, I got to customize the bottom of this planner. I love that I could add a workout task to the planner. As mothers, we sometimes forget to put ourselves first and this is a good reminder to take care of the things that are most important.
I can’t tell you if this has made me productive yet, but I can tell you the quality is amazing. It’s also a lot of fun to create your own planner.

Remember, you can start your calendar at any month of the year and have it go for a year. So, if you order it now, you can start it in February and go through February of 2018. Because these planners are custom made to order, and they ship from Sweden, allow up to 3 weeks for shipping to the states.
