The Sunday Post #83 (9.6.15)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It’s a chance to share news. A post to recap the past week, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead. I'm also going to link this up with Sheila's It's Monday post over at Book Journey.  
It was a quiet week, for which I'm so glad. I'm slowly getting back to my regular schedule and now am on a major organization spree. I bought an Erin Condren planner back in March (from Staples) to use for my blog/fitness planning and have only just dabbled in using it. This month I am determined to really use it to keep me organized. I also have another planner for work - I had picked it up at Target to see if it would be better for my blog planning than the EC planner (and cheaper - only $15 as opposed to $40 (again I got mine at Staples)) but I like that it's a July to June calendar. That's our fiscal year at work and the layout seems to work so far for what I need. We'll see if I can keep myself organized! Just think - this is all just for myself - I don't even have kids...I don't know how you all do it with kids, blogging and work! So my mantra for the rest of this year is #stayorganized!!!

Have a great week everyone!!!

  1. I use a June-July calendar as well and really like it. I find the simplest is best for organizing or I end up forgetting or not having time. Hopefully your new calendar will keep you all nicely organized. I'm curious about the Sheila Roberts. I read one of hers and enjoyed it but haven't read any since then. I need to give her another try. Have a great week!

  2. Good luck with your planners and staying organized! It's a good goal, one I rarely accomplish. :D I might need to check out that Sheila Roberts book, not that I need another Christmas book, lol.

    Happy reading!

  3. Hope all those organizers keep you all organized. I don't know how workers do it all plus children as well. I could only admire those who did when I was working. I noticed the new Sally Hepworth book on NetGalley but decided against a request as I have so many books on my own shelves. If only I could stop buying!

  4. Best of luck on the organization goal! Looking forward to If You Only Knew.

  5. I need to pick up the Sheila Roberts book at NetGalley. I've enjoyed the series. I'm also hoping to get The Admissions. Have a great week, Kristin!

  6. So good if you stay organized. I never seem to be able to do it! I hope you enjoy the Paris Key as much as I did.

  7. Looks like a good haul! I need to get more organized as well.
