Monthly Spread of Feb. 2014

Hello, everyone! I'm sorry I wasn't able to get this done at the beginning of Febuary, but I have my weekends off so I usually spend them with Derek (my wonderful boyfriend)! So I am now getting a chance to catch up on my planning life and updating the blog. This post is going to be all about how I organize my monthly spread.

 The month section is just as important to me as the weekly. I use it to monitor things like when bills needed to be paid, birthdays, no school days, or other important events. This is usually the first place I go when I'm making plans with someone. By this, I will be able to determine when I have time free and whether or not I have another event planned that day. I usually put in my work schedule but I haven't gotten that far yet. What I love about the EC planner, is that the monthly spreads are large enough to put a lot of imformation on. I love the two page layout!!!!

I love that the EC planner carries over the last few days of the last month: not that I use them though ;) . That's where you'll find my washi tape. I like that I am able to put my own touch to each month, and put a color or pattern that I know will make me happy. This month I choose a blue vintage floral print I got from Michaels (I'm sorry I don't remember the name :/). I also carry that washi over to mark when bills are due!

The cat was just a gift from a friend, because she knows how much I love kitties :) 

When the month is over, this section looks like a complete mess. I cross things out, write tons of things down, and mark when the day is over by a big X. This helps me feel a sense of accomplishment.

I hope this helps you in coming up with ideas to organize your month and get you all set from the month of Love <3
