Irma's Planner Picks for 2015

There's no denying it, I love planners. Even in this smartphone era, I still use planners. In fact, I don't only have one but three or four in a year for different purposes. 

For 2015, I picked out these planners or calendars or journals. 

Three planners for 2015

I finally graduated from years of using Starbucks planners. I used the Philippine Starbucks planner this year as my prayer journal. But it was so distracting with all the literature on coffee. And it is not easy to customize with washi tapes because of its design. 

I decided then to find simpler and plain ones for next year. I have too many washi tapes and I would like put them in use. 

My first pick is the kikki.K Weekly Planner to serve as my main planner for 2015 to keep track of schedules, to-dos, important dates, etc. 

I love this brand which I learned from Fat Mum Slim's post. Yes, I had to order it from Australia. But it's just perfect as I want a weekly VERTICAL planner to organize my daily schedule. There are not many weekly vertical planners in Bangkok thus the need to source abroad. 

A big mistake though is the size. Lesson learned: Do not simply click on A5 thinking it is smaller than A4. I was surprised to see this large planner. It won't be easy to bring everywhere so the planner stays at home. 

My kikki.K weekly planner

My second pick is the Muji planner which will be my prayer journal. 

I love how basic it looks. And I like how the days are all on one side. That leaves with one page free for whatever I want to write. I'm thinking I'll put down my weekly verses here and list of prayer requests. 

Our family calendar

A dear friend gave me this kikki.K family calendar. When she saw it in the store, she knew I was meant to have it.

We are a family of four and our schedules are becoming crazy. Our eldest son's activities are just coming up one by one. Pretty soon our little Caleb will have schedules of his own. It is nice to see a large enough calendar with all our activities so we can sort our schedules out.  Love the stickers and the dinner planner. The menu planner is so me as I only cook one dish a day which is for dinner. 

And there you have it, my attempt at organizing our family life. Take note that I wrote down "organize" instead of plan. 

My biggest lesson this year is that I am not in control but God is. It's not about what I want for my life but what He wants. So whatever it is that He thinks is right for my family, I will write them down on these planners/calendars. 

How do you organize your year? What planners do you use if you ever use one?
