more Inkwell Press planner goodies…

I bought a few more planner goodies from Inkwell Press this week.

I love their daily docket and daily download pads to help you plan your day and end your day with! See picture above. I find myself planning my day in the morning before I begin anything and the night before to wrap things up and move forward anything I might have left hanging.

I also bought their latest fitness planner. See pictures below. It’s a great 12 week planner designed to help you achieve your fitness goals. Log your meals too. I plan on using this right after my mini-vacation June 1st. I want to uplevel my fitness a bit and this planner is fabulous for daily tracking.

Can you tell I am a big fan of Inkwell Press, their items are top quality, thought out well, and function beautifully.

The other day I ordered their Weekly Kickstart planner pad too. See image below. All things to help keep me on track. I still use a bound planner to keep my schedule in but I like the flexibility of these pads to use daily. I keep this kickstart pad on my desk to have an overview of my week.
