This free eBook is here to help make your life easier – How to use a Planner for Beginners!
I’ve been a “planner girl” myself for as long as I can remember. What started with an obsession for making lists became a hobby which progressed to a business creating and selling planner stickers.
My most visited website is Etsy!
Planning has become quite trendy recently – with more and more people choosing paper planners over online ones.
I love everything about planning and the benefits of planning are endless – but it can be a bit overwhelming to know how to start planning or how to start using a planner.
I can help you! And I want to help – I want to share my passion for planning with you.

This eBook includes how to use a planner effectively and I know you’ll find it super informative and helpful too.
How you should be using your Paper Planner
You will learn:
Why I use a Planner
Every Sunday morning, I plan for the week to come using my Erin Condren LifePlanner.
In the fifteen minutes or so it takes me to decorate my planner, it’s my “me time”. It’s a little bit of time for creativity that also serves the purpose of keeping me accountable and productive.
I plan for everything that I need to do for the next seven days. It includes my plans for work, the family and the personal things I need to do.
Why do other people use a Planner?
For a million and one reasons! They might like to plan their work week, their family events, their wedding, a blog planner, as an event planner, a party planner, for a specific project or more.
Without my planner, I would be SO disorganised. It’s just impossible to remember everything that needs to be done, when it needs to be done.
Since I started using a paper planner, my productivity has soared!
How a beginner planner can start to plan
It can be a bit overwhelming when you first start planning – I didn’t find much help online on planning for beginners. I wondered:
What is the best planner for beginner like me? A paper planner, online planner, a diary, a bullet journal or a personal planner? What are the best planners for beginners?
How do I decorate my planner? Do I even have to do planner decoration?
Where do I start planning?
What are the rules of Planner 101?
I remember sitting down with my brand new planner for the first time and feeling a bit lost! I’d watched a lot of YouTube planner organization videos (and even make my own here sometimes) but I didn’t want to mess up!
Over the years, I’ve found a planning style that works for me and I want to help you how to start using a planner too.
