Are you a vertical or horizontal Erin Condren user? I started with vertical for my homeschool planner and quickly realized I was not suited to that style. I'm team horizontal now, and it has boosted my motivation and helped me keep the tidy and perfect records I needed for our family homeschool. Even if you are just a planner user (and not a homeschooler) check out this video for tips on how to use the yearly, monthly, weekly, and note sections. Enjoy!
