How To Use A Planner To Become Super Organized

There’s nothing better than using a planner to stay organized. We fully believe in the power of a great planner, so for the past few months, we’ve been working on a planner of our very own. We wanted to create the kind of planner we were dreaming of, and we are so excited to finally reveal it!

The Getting Things Done planner is the easiest way to stay on top of your life. So you can finally get things done! The good news is, it will be launching soon in the CGD shop. Good news, we’ll be giving one away! All you have to do is let us know your favorite design out of the three and sign up at the bottom of this article! The secret’s out – so let us tell you a bit more about it…

 

 

1. Every career girl needs a great planner 

Every career girl needs a planner or a notebook. We need something to write down our goals and to-dos for the day! And while everyone wants to be incredibly organized, not everyone has a system, and not everyone has a planner. We designed our first planner to be the kind of book that will actually help you get sh*t done. It has a soft pink leather cover and over 360 pages to plan your life with. If you’ve been feeling a bit chaotic recently (we’ve all been there), the one thing that helps get back on track is a great plan!

2. Plan out your day, your way

On the left-hand side of the page, you can write notes and today’s plan, while on the right you can plan everything from meals to expenses. Whether you’re the kind of girl who bullet journals her day or the kind of girl who usually scribbles on the first piece of paper she can find. It’s never been easier to plan your day!

3. Finally get your life together 

While you’re planning your day you’ll be prompted to fill in the sections on the right-hand side. You can start with your meals for the day, tick the boxes to make sure you’re getting enough water. Fill out your planned self-care activity from a face mask to a hair appointment, write personal notes and appointments and make notes on your exercise for the day. Plus you can track your expenses, so you know you’ll be on top of every single thing! Sound good? Don’t forget to enter the giveaway by leaving a comment about your fave design and sign below to enter the giveaway!

4. Write it down 

Over the past few years, we’ve learned about the power of writing it down. Not only does it help you remember appointments, but it’ll make you more likely to commit to eating healthy and working out if it’s all there on the page! So we designed the planner to be just like your very own personal assistant. We’ve thought about every area of a career girl’s life so you don’t have to remember everything and rely on so many different channels. Just write it down and get ready to start getting things done!

Let us know your favorite design (1, 2, or 3 in the first photo) and sign up below to win a copy of this dream planner! We’ll announce the winner on the 11th August!

    I love planning and writing things down, it helps me to remember then. And cute organizer is a successful girls’ must-have! I really like the pink one in the middle, cause it’s so girly, just like me :)

  • Dani Cateley

    I absolutely adore the 2nd one! It’s beautiful and oh so handy! I was just diagnosed with General and Social Anxiety and it makes it extremely difficult to keep on top of even simple every day tasks, I love writing down notes during the day but because they aren’t all in one place I tend to lose them :( – This would be a lifesaver! :) Thank you for this opportunity!!! xxx

  • Gunbritt Dahlin

    Hi there! I really like number 2 planner och would be so lucky if it will find itΒ΄s way to me. Really need it so I can get my life more organized.

  • Raven Avery

    Number 3 would be my choice, love the subtle shade. This would be so handy because I am that girl with lots of little scrappy notes that I find everywhere and never when I need them ☺️

  • Taylor

    I like the colour of the 2nd planner the best! Would definitely help me along in my job search.

  • Sven Journal

    Number 3 is, hands down, my favourite!

I always need different planners for different things (birthdays and events, shopping lists, diaries, creative ideas) so another planner would make my life even more efficient! X
