Pip Tip Tuesdays & January Planner Giveaways

You didn't think the giveaways ended just because the holidays were over did you? I know I've said this a few times, but I'm bound and determined to get SUPER organized this year (if I keep saying it, it will happen, right?). Now, just because my organization game could use a little love, don't think that I'm not well prepared! I've had a small planner addiction for quite some time and am here to pass that addiction on to you this month (for those of you fellow addicts, consider me your personal enabler!). We're giving away some of my favorite planners all month long... Welcome to January's giveaways and the start of Pip Tip Tuesdays! Every Tuesday look for a post with some fun tips and the giveaway of an awesome planner. Follow along all month for a chance to win the January Grand Prize (keep your eyes on social media for the reveal later this month)!

Today's #PipTipTuesday

I'm gonna start with a basic one here, but it's one that I think is super important and if you actually DO IT, you're half way there...and then the fun part comes.
 Make time to plan.
Whether you are planning your day-to-day, setting goals, trying to cut down on sugar, planning an event, or just doing your best to make good use of that super cute new planner you bought (lol), setting one time of the week to do it is important. With everything that I've got going on, this totally won't happen unless it's ingrained in my schedule. So, just like my Saturday afternoon nap (which is set in stone and everyone who knows me KNOWS not to call between 2-4pm!), I set 30 minutes every Sunday night after the kids are down, and plan out my week. A nice cup of tea, glass of wine, or sparkly beverage definitely helps too (maybe that's it's own tip, haha)!

Today's Giveaway: ban.do Planner

I'm in love with this green planner from ban.do - much like all of the other bando planners! The swirly design with hints of pink, white, & silver make me swoon and feel really classy all at the same time. It's good, right? Well, today it can be yours!

Post it notes and stickers are everything for keeping organized. I live to plan ahead using multiple calendars for each person I the house.

Love to add splashes of color on my planner squares, and a sticker of course. It brings focus to the week’s, day’s or month’s highlights, and is just plain fun!!

I list my to-dos on a post-it stuck to my current weekly planner spread. That way a realistically sized list of things I need to handle is always right in front of me, but I’m not pressuring myself to tie each and every task to a specific day.

I’m a planner addict, scrapbooker, paper crafter, mixed media artist and wanna be Journaler so my Close to my Heart timewithtally.ctmh.com and mini Happy planners are a combination of all of those combined. I do planner goodie swaps on swap-bot.com and have a nice fun stash of stickers, Washi, pens, Die cuts, pocket journaling cards, post it papers, flags, and paper clips. I do all of my appointments on my phone and transfer to my planners. Its a fun memory keeping and kind of a bullet journal combined.

Like most people, I’m a devotee to using the “to do list” in my planner. However, occasionally I’ll have a very busy, productive day where NOTHING on my list gets done. Often I’d get to the end of such a day and say, in despair, “I got nothing done today!” To counter this I’ve started keeping a “things I did” list alongside my “to do” list. It gives me a sense of achievement for a day of hard work even when the “to do” list has nothing crossed off. Give it a try!
