I know many of you are Moms and the kids going back to school means a schedule full of activities, sports, etc. If you’re like me, you sometimes (ok, a lot of times) feel overwhelmed by everything that has to be done in a week and wonder how you’re going to keep it all straight. I’ve tried lots of different approaches to organizing what I need to do each week and I haven’t really been able to come up with a way that works great for me, until I discovered Bubble Planner.
I was sent their Bubbles for Busy Women for review and I am so glad I was given the opportunity to check it out.
I am very visual and am a list maker. I find great satisfaction in crossing things off of my list. However, I tend to get overwhelmed when I look at a long list of things and feel like I don’t know what to do first or how I will ever complete the list. Here is where the Bubble Planner really shines for me. The goal setting bubbles allow me to write down the goals I would like to achieve but that I don’t necessarily have to get done right away. They are there for me to see everyday, but not in a way that is overwhelming. I also like that they suggest highlighting the things you accomplish, rather than crossing them out. I think it’s encouraging to see a page full of highlighted things that you’ve accomplished. They also have the daily task management bubbles that allow me to write in the specific tasks I need to get done that day and if there is room, I write in some things I want to get done that day as well. This makes things much less overwhelming for me and since they are broken up into home tasks, office tasks, phone tasks and computer tasks, they make it easy for me to remember what I’ve got going on and I can plan out which things I am going to attack first. Seriously, this is perfect for me! There are also monthly and weekly calendars, so I can map out what I know is coming up and add in whatever else comes my way. I can keep birthdays and addresses and phone numbers in it too, so everything is all in one place and easily accessible. The planner fits right in my purse and with the “lists” pages in the back I can quickly jot down groceries I need to pick up or any other things I need to run out and get and have it all right in my purse and handy to add things to as I think of them, no matter where I am. What more could you need?
I am thrilled to have this planner and know that it is going to take a lot of the stress of the school year schedule off of me because I will be able to easily map out my days and see exactly what I need to get done each day without there being an overwhelming list to look at and check off. I look forward to seeing all the highlighted things that I get accomplished and to feeling more in control of my schedule. Yay for Bubble Planner!!!
