Purple Trail Planner |Review|

Hey guys, gals and everyone else!

I was recently approached by Purple Trail Planners to see if I wanted to review one of their products. After poking around on their site a little bit (http://www.purpletrail.com/planners) I decided that I’d be interested in trying out their products! To be honest, the fact that they are MUCH more customizable than EC was a selling point for me. I’ve been dying to try an hourly layout, so here was my chance! If you’re looking for a new planner, this might just be the one for you!

   The holiday season is upon us, and if you’re like me, your pocket book may not be completely ready for it!

That being said, being able to give gifts to loved ones that are inexpensive AND that you know they will love is a great feeling! These tips work for any one and any holiday, so don’t feel left out!

How to become more productive

Hey guys, gals, and everyone else!

I don’t know about you, but as soon as day light savings time hits (or doesn’t as is our case in good ole’ Arizona) I get so unmotivated. I’m not sure if it’s the shorter days, or the stress of the holidays coming, but I just don’t feel like doing anything. It seems the longer my to-do list gets, the longer my naps become. BUT a lot of times, when I write here on staywithmeonthis, I’m learning along with you guys. So here’s some tips I’m going to try out, plus a few that I found to help a lot when I’m unmotivated to get stuff done!

Why I'm breaking up with Erin Condren Life plannersHey guys, gals, and everyone else!

This may come as quite a shock to my planner friends…but I’m just not feeling my Erin Condren Life Planner (Vertical). In fact, I’m tearing our the  months I’ve used in my 18 month planner and sending it to Melissa of blissandbirds! I love the brand ( I even wrote about my plan for two planners, and a brand review here), but I find that it doesn’t fit my style of planning.

Hey guys, gals and everyone else!

Remember my year in review post? I put how I have goals just to be a generally good adult for awhile? Well I’ve put together a 5 year plan (I’m trying to get my guy to do one as well). So I thought I’d share it with you! I have a somewhat specific timeline to mine, but many people just use it as a kind of general 5 year life to do list! You can do whatever strikes your fancy!
