This is a sponsored post. However, while it is sponsored, I personally think all of these planners and accessories are incredible. I highly recommend visiting all of these shops to get all of your planning needs before 2020 comes!

A planner has become a necessity in my life.

Having three kids, and my blog, a planner is a key component in keeping everything running smoothly in my life. So I`ve made made a guide of planners and planner-related resources to help you get the best start possible for 2020.

The Urban Design Co

`The Urban Design Co was born out of my sheer delight in creating things of a digital nature.  I’ve always been a keener when it came to designing things and when I was looking for specific planners for my own use, I just couldn’t find what I wanted. That’s when I decided to create my own and I thought “Hey, maybe others would like these too.”  As they say, “necessity is the mother of invention” and it certainly proved true in this case.

All of my shop items are digital in nature and one of the great things that I personally love about digital products is that they are an instant purchase in that they can be downloaded and used right away – no need to sit and wait for it to arrive in the mail. For my planners, I will either print right at home or simply take to a local printer to print out and coil for me in a matter of minutes for a beautifully finished physical product that I can start to use right away.

2020 will bring lots of new goodies to my Etsy shop so be sure to check back for new items added regularly. Not only will I be featuring plenty of items for bloggers and all my fellow “lady bosses”, but lots of new planners and items for everyone else as well. Stay tuned!`

Katie offers lots of digital options so you can print your journal in your style. Check out her shop to add some flair to your journals!!

The Wheel Of Life

Annette`s journey began with becoming a mom. I was overwhelmed by how much my life changed in an instant! Nothing was more important than taking care of her precious little one. But someday she realised that she was stuck in her day-to-day life and forgot to think about what she wanted in life. She had no visions…

So, Annette decided to start making plans.

She wanted to make a difference for her life and her family. Annette wanted to create a life that she could call her masterpiece. And, she wanted to teach her little ones to pursue their dreams, too.

She began to research how to set herself realistic goals, how to get their finances in order, how to be more productive and even how to meal plan easily. And Annette made up some planner templates for guidance and staying on track.

And now – with her Etsy shop – Annette wants to help other moms and women to dream big for themselves. Plan your life as your masterpiece and do the things you didn’t think you were able to! Just start with a plan!

The WHEEL of LIFE printable is the perfect exercise to figure out what you want in your life.

Figure out ways to improve your satisfaction level and set yourself respective goals. Work on your goals and reach level 10 in all areas of your life.


`I`d been a little lost with my life, like I think almost every young adult is at some point. Then I found planners and got more motivation. It sounds silly, but small things like planners and planner stickers gave me inspiration, productivity and a new point of view. For example, gratitude stickers made me appreciate little things and mood stickers helped me raise my mood day by day.

Using planners and planner stickers is not a big thing, but it can improve or even change your life. It’s exactly the reason I opened Deck Your Desk. I want to give inspiration to other people.`

Some benefits of using a planner:
  • It can make time managing much more manageable and achievable.
  • It can eliminate/reduce feelings of stress.
  • A planner can help you to be more productive.
  • It can help you to reach goals and stay focused on them.
  • A planner can help you work faster, because you have a clear list of things you are planning to do.
  • It can help you see/realise your priorities, and make goal setting more meaningful.

I find using a planner very beneficial and helpful in my personal life along with my blog. I use mine for appointments, prescription refills, things related to my children and more. It helps me to stay on top of everything.

Do you use a planner? Do you find that it`s helpful for you?

Love Always, N
