Pre-planning Routine.

I only started pre-planning this year actually and I wonder why I didn’t do it sooner. Pre-planning saves my messy a** big time and my planner looks neat now that I almost don’t have to erase any mistakes or stick too many sticky notes to mark events and stuff.

I use this printable weekly sheets from The Planner Spot to pre-plan my week.

The sheet is blank so it’s easy to set it according to your personal preference. For me, I dedicated those four sections to DUE, WORK, PERSONAL and FINANCE.

I can move my events all I want because this sheet is not a permanent insert in my planner.

As soon as I done transferring all the events into my actual weekly inserts, I change the pre-planning sheet to a new one.

Another way I pre-plan is using this convenient weekly desk planner I got from Typo. I mainly use this to pre-plan my big events or projects because it’s huge and has plenty of space to write on.

By the way, this is my current planner setup. I’m loving it so far.IMG_6514.JPG

2017 Planner Setup

Hi. Long time no see.

For the year 2017, I’ll be using the same planner I use this year which is the gorgeous Kate Spade Wellesley in black.

The only thing that is going to be different is the inserts, of course.

It’s hard to find good personal size planner inserts where I live. I tried Typo, Harris and other major bookstores in Johor Bahru but to no avail. So I decided to go online and I found this website called Paperdorable.com.

Thank god they carry personal size inserts! I’m so glad that I made the purchase and when it came in the mail a few day ago, the quality is good! Better than the Kate Spade ones that I’ve been using.

I believe this is the Dream Planner inserts from Paperdorable.com

The inserts do come with beautiful dividers but they’re just too colorful to my liking so I decided to make my own. I went ahead and used the pages from New York at Night, a photobook that’s been sitting on my nightstand for so long, collecting dust. It turned out great after I laminated them!

The dividers that I’m going to be utilized next years are HOME, MONTHLY, WEEKLY, EXPENSES and an unlabeled one to house random stuff.

I also made my own dashboard from the same book and a couple other inserts like my Bucket List insert, When I Did Last, Month at a Glance, cash envelopes as well as my Cash Flow Inserts. They are all in black and white. I am going for the minimalistic and simple planning routine next year so there won’t be any crazy colored spread.

I also made the page marker from a pvc sheet that I am so proud of because it is so cute.

Other than that, all the inserts are from Paperdorable.
