Link Love: Planners & Printables

I forgot how hectic back-to-school can be. The past two weeks have been exhausting, but I was able to find some quality time to rejuvenate. My grandma and I even made homemade sourdough bread, but more on that recipe another day!

As dorky as this is going to sound, my new "life planner" has been instrumental in getting me through the busy days. When I started looking for a new day planner, I knew I needed a larger size for work as I have to keep up with numerous 8.5 x 11 papers between multiple locations. When I found Crystal Wilkerson's Life Planner, I feel in love.

A few pictures of my Life Planner taken by Rebecca Cooper! :)  My life planner challenge starts tomorrow...January 15th...on my blog!  Come join me!

Not only do I love all the options her planner provides, I also love that I am not limited to using just her pages. Using a three-ring binder, you can mix-and-match free printables from online and get exactly what you are looking for when it comes to "life planning" and organization. Pinterest is a good place to start for finding free printables online.

For work and at home, here a few more links to free or inexpensive printables you may enjoy:

For those who just can't embrace the binder (I know I couldn't for a while), I absolutely love this company out of Korea. They pay close attention to design details as well as the practicalities of everyday usage. Invite.L is breath of fresh air when it comes to day planners as you usually get utility or aesthetics - rarely both. Their "agenda" is hands-down the greatest planner I've ever used.

Another design-worthy planner by Little OTSU was in my OliveBox this month as well! I can't wait to start using it come January. Until next time, good luck getting (and staying) organized!
