Horizontal Planner For Business

I am using an Erin Condren Horizontal Planner this year for our business. I’ve been getting it set up and thought I’d share a peek of it here. 

The basic setup for the monthly view will include doggie birthdays and ages of puppies. I also used my paw print Washi tape to mark off the extra days on the monthly view. I often have to count ahead by weeks and having duplicate dates has messed me up a few times. I think covering the dates that are not for the specific month in view will help me avoid that mistake in the future. 

This one includes a bit more info. I also used a fun doggie related sticker to decorate each month. 


The days will be pretty basic with a to-do list on them. The goal of course is to complete all the tasks!  Last year I put this info on the bottom lines in the vertical view. As you can imagine, the space was not adequate for listing all the things that needed to be done each day. 

I have some cute doggie stickers that I may use for an embellishment here and there, but this planner will probably just serve to keep us on track so we don’t forget anything!

If you also want to peek at our puppies, you can visit our other blog at http://www.silverpawcavachons.com.   Enjoy!

Setting Up My New Planner (Planner Hack #3)

This is not exactly a planner hack…I don’t think!

The next thing I did to set up my planner was put my name and phone number on the cover page. 

I absolutely love the vellum cover and think it looks so classy over the name page.  This is a change that I adore and I’m so glad even a normal planner gets this fun touch!

Did anyone else imagine coloring these pencil looking drawings with colored pencils?  I feel tempted to do that. 

I also set up the inside front cover as my dashboard. 


Do you think I have enough sticky notes?  I use them a lot so I don’t mind having such an abundant variety. I was a little hesitant to put them on the cover simply because this is the temporary cover, but I LOVE the inside of this cover, so I’m going to stick with it for a few weeks at least. 

I love the process of setting up my new planner and I plan to share every detail in this blog!!
