Quick Look at My New Erin Condren Life Planner

So excited to fill my new #ECLifePlanner with all of the things going on right now! Especially wedding planning! I got all kinds of goodies from them to make it match my style.

Sunday Prep for a Great Week


Sundays are one of my favorite days of the week!  I make sure to take time out to prepare myself for a great week ahead.  It makes the week just a little bit smoother and as stress-free as it can be! 


I do a LOT online, but I still prefer to have a planner I can write my days out in and keep track of my To Do lists.  I love being able to cross things off once I've completed them! Anyone else?!  I was so excited to receive an Erin Condren Life Planner to try out and share with you all.  I'm only a couple weeks in, but I love how fun it is to customize to my needs and my style.  I even personalized it with my name on the cover!  


I chose the vertical layout when I ordered my Life Planner.  Right now, I am putting anything scheduled in the top boxes, using the middle boxes for MUST DOs for the day, and the bottom boxes for any extra notes.  On Sundays, I take some time to fill in the week.  On the far left, I keep a running TO DO list of anything I want to accomplish before the next Sunday.  Then I make sure to add some fun stickers!  


I try to do at least a little bit of meal prep on Sundays so it's easier to make better choices during the week when I'm short on time.  These containers are perfect for me! They have three sections that I use for protien, veggies, and sometimes grains.  Some of my go-to prep recipes are here: shredded chicken, egg cups, and salads.  You can also check out these meal prep containers and other items that I use in my Amazon Store.  One other tip:  placing a grocery store order online through Walmart and driving to pick it up is kind of amazing and I suggest giving it a shot!


I also take a little time to do some beauty maintenance.  Whether it's going to get my nails done or doing them myself, using a face mask or treatment, or relaxing in a bubble bath it's always nice to just enjoy a little bit of downtime before the new week begins...even if it's just 30 minutes! [These came in my latest FabFitFun Spring Box!]



What are things you do on Sunday to get yourself ready for the upcoming week?
