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.

my new Inkwell Press planner 2016-2017…


My new Inkwell Press 2016-2017 planner is here! I bought it in wood chevron cause I love the color blue. Inkwell press has wonderful thick paper to write on. I bought the original layout. I have the flex layout for my A5 Filofax. New planners are in stock at Inkwell Press now. Get yours today. Want more close up photos of my planner? Please let me know in the comments and I will do another post. This planner starts July 1st, 2016 so I won’t have decorated and used it till then.

I also have been buying some wonderful new planner stickers from my favorite etsy shops like Penny Lane Planning. Jessica ships super fast and has great product. I highly recommend her stuff.


See photos of what I bought below.

I also purchased from Inkwell Press a weekly Kickstart notepad. I love to set this on my desk for work related business items that need to be planned out. I also ordered a Fitness Planner and some more planning pads, look for that blog entry soon.

tour of my FiloFax…

P1010715.JPGI recently decided I wanted to try a 6 ring binder system as a planner. I choose a lovely blue A5 Domino FiloFax. I like the ability to change things around as I need to and add/subtract things too. A 6 ring binder system really gives you some room to grow and change. I am currently using this planner for my work/business planner. Housing projects, goals, calendar, notes, and more. I still love my Erin Condren planners but I use them for other record keeping items like my exercise/weight loss planner. See this previous post regarding my Erin Condren planners. (more…)
