Every July I start my new planner for the up coming year, this year I am doing a 15 month calendar.  I decided to go with a bigger format in an effort to keep up with my growing birthday lists and card events.

 I switched from a smaller 5x7 format and went to a big A4 size!

Originally I printed  calander from a microsoft template, and was very excited it when it only took two hours and 70 sheets of 40# paper.  THEN I noticed it was for 2012!  I decided 20.00 for a new pretty one was worth the investment!

I plan how many birthday/occasions cards I need about a month ahead of time, having all the birthdays and occasions marked in the calender makes this easy
my average month averages about 60 birthday cards alone!!

On the Daily pages I note everything I mail out of here, cards, packages, sales, it all; gets logged.
some of this counts at tax time. 

If you participate in swaps and challenges and have pen pals around the world, this type of organization becomes invaluable!!

                        Thanks for stopping by, I've got some terrific freebies coming your way!! Check back tomorrow!

It is a really pretty planner and this is how i used to do my cards, I go through and sort everything out in January and then get my act into gear and start the creation process, like you, trying to stay on top of things. Although now I have minimized my list as it was far too big. I also work on a financial year planner starting and finishing in the middle of the year, I don't like having to deal with 2 planners around Christmas when we tend to be a mid manic.

Thanks for sharing it is always interesting to see how others do too.

Hugs Eliza
