I am preparing for several “Back to School” themed posts next week, but I had to tell y’all about these new Day Designer by Whitney English calendars at Target in case they sell out. Blue Sky sent me some calendars to try out for y’all so I spent all last weekend getting organized with post it notes and washi tape!
Whitney English Day Designers have been popular among moms and entrepreneurs for several years. She was really one of the first to modernize the day planners (now there are several companies, as you know!). I have never used a Day Designer but I have many friends who are loyal followers and continue to buy one year after year.
Well, Blue Sky, the company that makes a lot of the calendars in the “calendar aisle” at Target, brought Whitney English on board to design a line for them – meaning you get a version of the Day Designer at a much lower price!
A normal Whitney English calendar runs between $57-$59. The Blue Sky Whitney English calendars are all under $20! (Yes, even the hardback black/white stripe ones!).
I had already filled out my day planner from another company but, I have to say, I really liked playing around with the weekly/monthly 8 x 10 Day Designer ($19.99). Seeing the entire week before you is very nice and, with the Day Designer weekly, you can still fill in appointment/meeting times. I also like that there is an inspiration quote and “top 3” things to do each day.
This is what the month pages look like. (I am loving my washi tape to help me visually get an idea of when we are getting overbooked!)
Over the past few months I have been trying to figure out how to best organize my blog posts. Up until this point, I haven’t done much planning. But I realize that – like anything – planning ahead of time is wise and avoids a lot of stress.
I have to say, I really like this planning method! Now I have the flexibility of being able to change post ideas at the last minute without the annoying pencil markings. This way I can also make sure I have a nice balance of what to say, what to do, and what to give posts. (The mini post-it notes are ideas for Instagram posts!). Even if you aren’t a blogger, you might like this Post It note idea for your business or family calendar!
I am going to keep my blog planner right on my (recently organized!) desk so it’s ready to go when I have a random blog thought or idea!
And here is a fun FREE thing for y’all: Blue Sky’s website has several fun printables! For the soft planners like mine, you can print different patterns for the cover (there’s a cute black and white one!). And there are also fun grocery, travel checklist, and summer bucket list printables.
You can get Day Designers by Whitney English at Target (in store only). But here’s a little tip: If for some reason they sell out at Target – which I am sure they will! – they are all online on Blue Sky’s website!
I am going to give away this pink pocket mini Day Designer (below) to one of my readers. Comment below for a chance to win. Giveaway ends Saturday at 10 pm CST.
