Home Organization Notebook/ Planner!

First of all, congrats to my cousin Abbi on her engagement!! She is going to be a beautiful bride!
I also have been Considering selling Scentsy! I know, I am So undecisive. It is such a big decision and I am
So afraid to fail that I always give up. Maybe this time I will actually go though with it. I hope to at least!
On to the fun stuff!
I have been dreaming if an Erin Condren planner. I never ended up buying one because I felt to guilty. So i started researching solutions to help get me organized! I am proud to say thag FINALLY ( a year later) I am organized and have a good schedule going that works great for my family! This binder has been a LIFESAVER! seriously, I am not always stressed anymore, everything is organized and has a home, and I am Having lots of time to play with lexi, craft, and just relax! Such a big difference it has made in a week. I hand made everything, so I am very happy with how it turned out. There are 5 sections- weeky planner, budget, meal Planning, calender, and misc.
The weekly planner section has 2 pages for every day of the week. It has a section for responsibilities, extras, chores, and meal planning for the day: it feels so nice to cross stuff off the list everyday!
The budget section is great! It is making us very accountable for whay we spend. I have one page lableled budget whuch has 4 sticky notes on the page: gas, food, bills, and etc. On the next page is a daily total of what we spent, the next page is weekly, and finally yearly! I am aleays scared to write on it so it stops me From Spending money! Ha! Whatever works right?!
The meal Planning section is really nice as well. I have a weekly plan, monthly, grocery list section. And a pocket for coupons. This has been amazing! The whole next week is full of new recipes.
The misc section has a list of weekly chores. And the calender section is pretty self explanatory. It really has been so amazing. I just wish I had done it sooner! I am Including a few pics to show ya :)
