One of my big goals for 2019 is to stay organized. A few months ago, Erin Condren sent me the cutest personalized planner in the mail! I have been waiting patiently for January to arrive, so I can start the year with a fresh new planner and an organized outlook. In addition to receiving the new planner, I just recently went to Austin, Texas to attend the Erin Condren event at her flagship store with the rest of the #ECsquad. If I was in the organized state of mind before, it was taken to a whole new level when I got home! The whole event was full of amazing Erin Condren products and tips to stay organized. I left feeling so inspired to plan and excited to get creative. I’ve listed my top 3 tips to stay organized in 2019 below. I’m using these to organize not only my planner, but life in general!
3 TIPS TO STAY ORGANIZED
- Make to-do lists: This has been a life saver for me at work, and with the blog. Every morning, I jot down a list of things I need to do. I write down everything from scheduling of appointments, grocery store runs, outfits to shoot, and even instagram posts to schedule. There is something so satisfying about marking out a completed task!
- Color code: This is also so helpful when writing my schedule into my planner! It’s easy to choose a color for each category of events I have going on. For example, blog events, photoshoots, or meetings are written in orange. Fun plans like dinner dates with friends, concerts, family events, or road trips are written in purple. Important reminders such as doctor’s appointments, or Tillie’s vet appointments are written in red, and miscellaneous tasks that come up are written in green.
- Write down your goals: Erin Condren has created such a great planner with space to write down not only your schedule, but your goals for the year. It’s one thing to think about your goals, but I think it goes to the next level when you write it down and look at it every day. It’s a great daily reminder at exactly what I am wanting to achieve long term and short term.

If you are still looking for a great planner to kick off your year of organization, I highly recommend you check out Erin Condren! All throughout college, my friends have always been obsessed with her planners and notebooks. When I received mine, I instantly could see what all the fuss was about.
I love that it is completely customizable! They have different types of planners for teachers, students, brides, and just your everyday life. You can also customize the front and back covers. Add your name, a photo, a pretty design etc. I love the fun prints and quotes you can choose from. At the #ECsquad event, we received front covers that have our photos on them. They also added cute little star doodles that made the planner even more perfect!
