It’s a new year, which means I have a 2014 edition of the Take Note notebook by Erin Condren. This time last year, I had noticed that my Life Planner was getting way too crowded with all my blog info, specifically, the deadlines for articles and campaigns through FitFluential. I was squeezing important Twitter post reminders in between workouts, school, and regular life info. I needed a dedicated business calendar and notebook and I got my first Take Note book last year.
I did decided to stick with a tax calendar year of Jan-December so last month, I ordered my 2014 book. This time, I went with the picture collage option and used my pictures from my blog header and my logo. On the back, I included some biggest “pinned” pictures and some favorite details from 2013. I have to say, this is my favorite design yet. The pictures were so clear and the colors were true to my computer resolution.
Here are a few examples from my last notebook and how I used it. I used various colors for campaigns/projects so I could keep up with what was due when.
This is a 1 page of Notes behind the calendar page before the next calendar. After the calendar section, the rest of the notebook consists of lined and blank pages. A lot of them!
In the 2014 edition, EC included TABS for the calendar!! This was a biggie for me. Last year, I bought clear tabbed dividers at the office store and put in my own tabs. I must have calendar tabs! These are the sturdy laminated ones like in the Life Planner.
This is a side view. The front is the calendar pages. The lined and blank pages take up the rest of the notebook.
Don’t forget these stickers. Pre-printed and blank stickers are after the pages.
A 2 sided folder holds copies of all my contracts for projects, tax receipts, ides written on napkins, etc
As with the life planner, a zip close bag with some freebie personalized stickers/labels.
Thank you, Erin Condren, for another wonderful product made just for me! In the next few days, I’ll have another review for my 2013-2014 Life Planner and this current school year Teacher Planner. I adore and use all 3 of these planners/calendars daily!
