Planner Obsessed

Hi!  My name is Libby Allen and I'm addicted to planners.

I love, love, love planners!  Weird, I know!  But seriously, I can't help it.  Every time I go to Target  I have to go by this aisle and search for the perfect planner.  I'm a lot better now because I think I've finally found it.  Trust me, I've tried them all, but for me, the perfect one is made by Blue Sky. 
I have one requirement for planners.  They must have a monthly view.  No problem, plenty have them, but monthly views that are tabbed...aaaaahhhh, now we're talking!

But, I also need a weekly view, perfect for jotting down practice schedules, school events, dinner menus, and To-Do lists (oh! love lists too, but that's a whole other story). Blue Sky offers a variety of colors and sizes.  You could also start your planner in January or July.

  Which is where lies my dilemma.  I love the the 5x8 size and also the 3.625 x 6.125.  Well, they're reasonably priced, I could keep one at home and one in my purse.  But doesn't it make sense for me, being a teacher, to have the July-June planner also?  Ugh, I know!

My husband, being the awesome guy that he is, doesn't tease me or roll his eyes,
if I find a new planner in July, he justifies it for me and says, well, school is starting right, just give Vanessa the other one to draw in.

This is by far my favorite one for school, I mentioned it here.

Love the Month at a glance!

I use this section for Projects or Brainstorming Ideas.

And while I do have my lesson plans readily available, I love this Week At A Glance to write events/ activities I cannot forget.

I love the size, the color, and the layout!
Thanks for letting me share my little obsession with you :)


  1. I can't live without my planner either! I have an Erin Condren planner and wonder where it's been all my life. It makes life a little more organized! :)
