One Book July: Final Thoughts

I’m back! I didn’t blog about One Book July last week as I felt that I didn’t have anything to really elaborate on. My post would’ve been more photos than written content, and while that’s great, it just seemed like a pointless post. This week, however,  I do have a few things to comment on. I will also wrap up my thoughts on how my One Book July experience went.

I am still really enjoying my A5 rings set-up. I still haven’t really been using my B6 as much as I thought I would, but next week my kids are back in school, so that will more than likely be changing. I have made some changes to my A5 planner since my last blog post, but nothing too drastic.

One Book July: Week 2

So, I have survived week 2! Not that I struggled with my planner. Life happened this week and threw us a HUGE curve ball – why yes.. that was a baseball pun – that we didn’t see coming and shook our week up just a little. My planner was still functioning, as it should, and I found that tasks and due dates were easily met.

Last week I mentioned that I needed to stop using the boxes on the weekly spread as a check list. Well I did that this week, and it was MUCH easier to see the important information I needed for shop business this week. I did also include a couple of meal planning stickers to this week’s spread, as I needed to make sure I had certain things started, or remembered what we were having for dinner that day so I could prep ahead.

One Book July: Week 1

One week down for One Book July and I can’t say I hate my new planner! I’m actually going to report that my new set-up, might actually be working out! I will admit that I did not use the full system, my B6 is not an identical copy this week, as I had already pre-planned out this week in my old weekly insert, so I finished out that week. However, the set-up in my A5 ring planner worked out well.

I am really glad that I planned out what I wanted from my planner before starting One Book July this month. I think that’s had a lot to do with my success so far. The ability to see everything we had going on this week – big or small – on one page has been great. I have learnt a bit along the way, and I’ll discuss that below.
