Project Organize: Paper Coterie Blog Planner & a GIVEAWAY!

Last year about this time I ordered two planners from Paper Coterie. I wasn't sure yet what I was going to use them for but I wanted to try them out and they had a great sale going on so I ordered them. I ended up using one for daily journaling of funny things the kids said or a moment I wanted to remember and the other I turned into my blog planner. It took me a few months to figure out how I wanted to use it but now I have a great system going on where I can keep my ideas and posts organized. I may not always be able to carry out the plan that I have for the blog each month, but my Paper Coterie planner keeps it all together for me. 

My Blog Planner Cover

I purchased the monthly planner and uploaded our latest family pictures to it. The quality of the planner is excellent and its a beautiful planner. The pictures are so crisp and clear in it that I will not be throwing this planner away when I'm done with it. I will figure out a way to use those pictures! It is 60 pages total with monthly  2 page calendar spreads and planning sheets. 

One of the two page spreads of pictures. They printed beautifully! 

Here is the product detail of the planner I purchased and it is spot on! 
"Most planners lack a way to record and archive your day-to-day thoughts, ideas, and unforgettable moments. And most jouranls lack the ability to plan out your day with dated reminders, tasks and action items. Combine the features of a planer and a journal, throw in the ability to add personalized photos and text and ou have the perfect solution for living and loving life, - not just planning it. Our journals and planners help organize your future while perfectly capturing the present. You can't plan for the unexpected, but you can record it."

Ive walked you through mine in this video to show you the details and also how I use a post it note system to keep my blog content organized. hope its helpful!

  1. i love looking at planners and enjoyed learning more about this one. I am a newbie blogger with little direction at the moment. i have heard of blogger planners but not thought about it much in incorporating that in the planner in the one I am building. what did catch my eye about this is that I love to journal (and why i blog even though no one reads) and there are lots of spaces. are those post it notes really the exact same sizes of the monthly day boxes?

  2. My favorite blog posts are about other moms organizing, cleaning, decorating, crafting, and just being wife and mama.

  3. Yey hope I win!! As a mum I love following other mummies blogs and getting ideafor my family
