Win! A Paperchase ‘Get things done’ Planner


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!


I’ve always been a sucker for a pretty notebook to write my ‘to do’ lists in, and this brilliant ‘Get Things Done’ planner from Paperchase has really caught my eye! 


With pages to write your priorities for the days ahead, daily hour-by-hour pages, and space to write your notes and general lists, this has definitely made the cut when it comes to keeping myself on top of all life throws at me. No mean feat, what with 2 young children, 2 jobs, an Etsy Store, a home to run and life in general to organise! 

To be in with a chance of winning one of these brilliant planners, simply fill in the Rafflecopter below, and enter using as many options as you’d like.

Good luck!

    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.

    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!

    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!!!!

    Write things down but in bite size pieces so you are not making too big challenge for yourself each time.

    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 🙂

    Once you pick a piece of paper or something similar, deal with it there & then, either recycle or file

    Do something when you remember to do it and don’t put it off.

    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
