It’s that time of year — when all of those pretty calendars and planners for the coming year are in stores all over the place. I am most certainly a planner girl, and I have quite the collection of planners from The Happy Planner to Traveler’s Notebooks to Webster’s Pages. I have at least four different planners going at the same time for the different areas of my life. It’s just too much for me. As much as I adore all of the planner goodies & bling, I desperately need to scale back and declutter my planning sessions to be a bit more productive in reality. This coming year I am going to try something a bit different. I am going to be digital planning on my iPad Pro, the Noteshelf 2 app, and Google Drive & Calendar.

Perhaps it seems a little odd that someone who lives off-grid would choose to go to digital planning. The truth of the matter is, I am also a techie. I adore my electronic devices as much as I love the planner bling! However, I do not have space in our off-grid home to accommodate the oodles & oodles of planner goodies that have accumulated so far. Change and downsizing are necessary.
Digital Planning with Noteshelf 2
With digital planning, I can keep all of the areas of my life – personal, work, family, farm, etc. – in separate “planners,” but they will all be in one place on my iPad. Also, I do plan to carry a small calendar planner in my purse for on the go planning of appointments and activities.
I have categories in the Noteshelf 2 app for the different areas of my life that I plan for on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. Above you can see the Home & Farm category with the notebooks that I have so far. I also have categories for Homeschooling, Bible Study, and Blogging & VA Work.
With digital planning, there is no more wasted paper or printer ink. I have accumulated a plethora of planner page downloads that I can upload or import to Noteshelf, I will never run out of planner pages or design choices. I can also add images, emoji stickers, and even audio to my planner. So I still get all of the “bling!”
Plan of Action Digital Planning Pages
But of course, I had to create my own pages. It’s what I do. I created these Plan of Action Daily Planning Pages for my day to day personal planning.
