My Calendar

September 11, 2019

I don't know about you but September is one of my favorite fall months. It's still warm but the nights are cool, perfect for open windows. I also feel like there's still a lot going on, especially with all the fall events coming up.

I've kept a calendar for years. Whether it was a wall, desk, or physical planner, I've had a system in place. While this year I still have a paper planner, I've been leaning more and more on my Gmail calendar, for a multitude of reasons. One of the main being that the manner in which I like to keep a paper planner {pretty planning} has stopped being fun and I just don't want to do it anymore.

Here's a look at this month's calendar.

It looks hectic and crazy but it's so organized and straight forward.

Blue: this is my general calendar. Everything goes here, unless it's one of the below categories.

Coral: these are reminders about upcoming bills or tasks to complete

Lime: birthdays

Navy: NYG schedule - This is an add-on from the Giants website. You can do this with any sports team. I'm looking forward to seeing what they do this season!

Purple: travel

Green: payday - it's the same every month but I like to keep it on there.

Teal: this is anything fitness related. I like to keep my classes in my calendar because if it's scheduled, I'm much more likely to go than if I just say 'I want to go to the gym today'.

Yellow: this is blog related stuff - linkups I like to participate in or post titles that will be published.
This month has a bit of everything going on but with just a glance I'm on top of everything.
