How I use a virtual planner +++ GIVEAWAY!

I used to love when fall rolled around because that’s when I’d buy a new planner. But I eventually got irritated because I used a paper planner, Google calendar and my phone’s calendar. I had too many agendas! My solution now is to use a virtual planner. Let me show you how I use my iPhone’s calendar to plan my life.


PS, stick around ’til the end of this post for more info about the GIVEAWAY!

The great thing about the iPhone calendar app is that you can view it in different ways.

You can have a yearly view:

You can have a monthly view:img_7333

You can have  daily/weekly view:img_7332

I love that you have all the options right there for you.

I know there are calendar apps you can purchase/download from the app store but I just stick with the good ol’ one that comes with the phone.

My favorite part about this is that you can add your email calendars to it! If you have several email addresses, this is great to keep track of all your events in one place. All you have to do is link your email accounts to your phone’s calendar and you’re set.

TIP: Go into your calendar’s settings and adjust it accordingly. If you don’t, your calendar may just look like this:
img_7330There’s nothing bad about having Columbus Day listed more than once, (because it’s on more than one calendar) however it kind of gets in your way and adds more clutter. And you do not want clutter in your way when you’re trying to plan!

I’m a huge fan of calendar notifications. But if you don’t want notifications, you can check out what you’ve done already and what you’ve got coming up easily:

Does anyone else use a digital planner? I want to your your ways and if you have any tips/tricks!

But now, let’s get to the part you’ve all been waiting for 😉
