How to use Blog Page & Notes Page in a Planner

Hello, good morning! ^__^ 

I'm Halak and today we're going to be specifically talking about :

1. My Blog Posts Page and,
2. Notes Pages

Now, I'm working with the Color Splash planner, but please do remember that this information is equally applicable to the Retro Chic planner.

So let's get on with it!

My Blog Posts Page

Here's a picture of what the page looks like in the planner :

As you can see, it consists of 8 sections with 5 checklist boxes in each.

It's a whole lotta space actually which is meant for the entire month. So, if you have fewer blog posts, use each section for each post reminder, and if you have a lot of blog posts, write them under one another in the sections.

I like to have a record of all my DT commitments in one page, so I turned this into a blog post reminder for all my assignments.

Check it out :

I have removed the page from the planner to help you have a better look at what I did.

Kept it fairly simple, using few embellishments as I didn't want to go overboard and lose track of my main aim : all information in one page.

Added a few flowers, butterfly punch-outs, stickers by Papericious. (To do & Party, sheet included in planner kit.)
The happy sentiment card in pink that you see on bottom right hand side is also by Papericious. (Included in planner kit.)
The heart stickers at the bottom left is a local buy.
As usual, I keep ticking off the items that I am done with and I took some pink ribbon + red tacky tape and created a tab for quick access.

Notes Pages

Ah yes... the notes pages... what do we need these for... do we need these? If we plan for every day... why are these in the planner? Stay with me, you are about to know what it's all about.

This is what the notes pages look like in Color Splash, and there are three pages allotted for each month.

Now, some people do not feel the need to use the notes pages and what they do is, remove them from the planner to reduce planner weight, but I truly feel that the notes pages can come in really handy. How?

What notes pages can be used for :

1. These can be used to store your favorite accessories.
Have a favorite sticker and fear that it will get misplaced? Or, have some favorite quote that you would love to read frequently? Favorite image stamp? Slap them on here! There is ample of space and you can view the things you like the most every day! What better way to start the day than with a healthy dose of positivity!

2. Important Contacts
You can use the notes pages to jot down important contacts, addresses etc.
Example : Doctor's phone number, Child's teacher's phone number.

Also, you can use it to pen down stuff like medicines and vitamins that are needed on a monthly basis, especially for senior members of the family.

3. Goals
Yes! Write down the goals for the month! I tell you, finishing and ticking off the goal from the list? Happiest moment ever!

4. Budget
The details for the budget and savings of each month can be jotted down in the notes section.

5. Monthly expenses
Yeah, those expenses that occur every month.... electricity, insurance, gas, water etc.
Use this page to note down the complete list of expenses along with the due-dates for ease of access and to also help you plan your month better!

And there you have it! Notes pages, demystified.

Alas, my notes consist of a boring list of meds for my granny + doctor's number so I am going to avoid sharing that, but I do hope you enjoyed reading this and learnt something new!

Till next time dear friends, have a lovely friday and an awesome weekend! *Big Panda Hugs* <3
