Win! A Paperchase ‘Get things done’ Planner

0901

If you’re a regular reader to my blog, you’ll know that I’m quite ‘big’ on being organised, and living in a (fairly) organised home. This past month or so, I’ve been decluttering (you can see more of this here, and here), and generally spending January house-wise pottering about and deciding what can be done to keep our lives running smoothly. 

Don’t get me wrong, I love my home to be fun, filled with people and am happy for the kids to enjoy it and get messy. But when it comes to making sure the bills are paid, my work is done, emails are answered, and everyone has everything they need and is in the right place, then I need to be on the ball!

  1. Oh my, I need one of these so badly. I currently have just been using notebooks, but this would make it so much easier and neater, Thank you!

  2. Oh this is beautiful! I love a pretty planner me. I use a planner to keep myself on track although I go through periods of not using it, then I get flustered and stressed before I start using it again.

  3. Well this planner is just great because my tip for getting things done is kind of doing what this planner does. If I’m feeling overwhelmed I write out a list of things I need to do while I’m having breakfast and have different rows of today, tomorrow, this week.

  4. I love having a physical list and being able to tick things off as I go! I have been known to start the list with something I’ve already finished so it feels like I’ve achieved more!

  5. Lists lists lists! Every little tiny thing I need to do goes on my list for the day. I just love the satisfaction of ticking things off!

  6. Buy a few concertina files and and keep all receipts, documents, warranties etc in order and lable appropriately.

  7. Sort out post as soon as it arrives rather than putting it on a pile for later on – I am also an avid list maker so this would be a dream prize!!

  8. Making sure I write down everything I want to get done and making a plan to achieve it in a reasonable time.

  9. Always think ahead – know what you have to get done today, next week and next month.

    Have a book with all the special dates you need to remember written in for each month and heck twice a month so you can buy , write and post cards in time.

    Work out what meals you will have each day before you go shopping so you know exactly what you need to buy.

    Write lists of things you need to do and check the lists every day – this book looks perfect to help with that!

  10. I have a wall planner and make lots of lists. I love the clock pictogram, would probably waste my day colouring it in for different activties/tasks

  11. I’m a big list writer and like to stick bright coloured post it notes on things as reminders! Would love to win this beautiful planner πŸ™‚

  12. I find writing lists really useful. Whatever your method you need to make sure you put aside time every day or week to plan.

  13. For me, my fiancΓ©e reminds me of events, appointments etc. We do use a calander to assist memory, organisation etc. But I certainly could do with assistance, I do lists sometimes.

  14. i have a calender with plenty of room for each day have 4 kids! i keep my calender on the back of my downstairs loo door its the one place i can guarantee it will be read every day xxx

  15. Get up half an hour earlier each day and say that 6 times aday you are going to give yourself an extra 5 mins back to catch up on outstanding jobs or 30 mins slot somewhere else x

  16. As somebody who has always been disorganised, I learned when planning our wedding and then the birth of our baby, that making lists and sticking to them is the only way to be completely organised.

  17. So Cute! I’m definitely a list maker and that’s how I stay organised! Nothing more satisfying that ticking everything ogg your list!

  18. I use my white board to write important dates and things to do for the day, as its on the wall and easy to see. Also post it notes are handy fab giveaway thanks for the chance x

  19. I try to stay organised by writing EVERYTHING down.
    Then I end up losing all my notes and become even more confused πŸ˜‰

  20. Put things away as you go and don’t be tempted to leave things in a heap for later. If you need better storage, invest in some.

  21. Don’t overload yourself with tasks. Do a little every day. You can only do so much and if you have a massive list it will become overwhelming.

  22. Handle any piece of paper ONCE. Either file it or deal with it, do not put it down on a pile, also waiting to be dealt with!

  23. I have a list that is for everything that I need to do which constantly gets updated, but then will write out the top few that need ding that day to prioritise things. It helps to not be so daunted by a massive list too. I find this works at both home and when I was working as a PA.

  24. I like to have a big calendar on the wall with clearly marked important dates to have things done by. It really helps give you a visual reminder of what you have to do for particular days.

  25. My head works at 100 miles a minute – when i think of something that needs doing (anything from a bill needing paid to birthday card sent) i write it down there and then. So it might be that i have a list on my computer, on my phone, on the back of an envelope and on our calendar. I just need to remember to check those lists!!!!

  26. We rely on a shared Google calendar so we can both access from our phones and add reminders to – but sometimes you can’t beat writing things down, this planner looks great!

  27. When you think of something that needs doing write it down and check your list regularly adding notes as the task progresses along with contact details and so on.

  28. Keep a diary (or use the planner on your phone), AND use a calendar that everyone in the family can see. Make sure they tally up so everyone knows and can see what’s going on.

  29. I am inveterate list maker and aim to get about 80% completed. I don’t beat myself up for not getting everything done as it’s always tonnes more than if I don’t start out with a list in the first place!

  30. Lists, lists and more lists! On the fridge, in my diary and on my desk. If it’s not written down I forget it.

  31. Mine is to right my to do list before bed for the following day not only do I have my list I’ve also got all my thoughts onto paper and therefore have a better nights sleep!

  32. If you haven’t used it for 6 months get rid of it, make lists to keep on track, use a file system for paperwork and documents x

  33. I use my Paperchase e-co notebook to make lists and put my own dates in but love the design of the giveaway, perfect organisation for me.

  34. Always have a to do list for the week and spend time filling in what you are doing on each day , i tend to compete with myself then to get the jobs done that are due at the end of the week done at the beginning so i can have some me time !!

  35. Write everything down, jobs at home to be done, appointments, things I keep forgetting to buy…….birthdays…

  36. we have a board and my whole family contributes and looks at it to remind eachother. or more mum (me) keeps the organisation!

  37. Use your ‘spare minutes’ to get little tasks done i.e. while you’re waiting for the toast to pop up put in a load of washing or empty the dishwasher. Do mundane things when watching TV like folding the washing so you’re still productive even though it’s leisure time πŸ™‚

  38. Utilising sticky notes to make lists and put them somewhere that you look at first thing in the morning i.e. the mirror. πŸ™‚

  39. At the moment I use a paper diary and write everything down that I need to do then tick off each thing once its done, I can’t get used to the organised apps on my phone
