Gorgeous purse-size planner

I have a hefty planner that I use for lesson planning and family appointments. Start Where You Are is just what I was looking for to use as a blog planner. It has enough room for my editorial calendar and essential information, while still fitting nicely into my tote bag. Start Where You Are makes planning a breeze when inspiration strikes.

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can. –Arthur Ashe” 

The illustrations and quotes are lovely and motivating. As a working mom, I need all the encouragement I can get, and the quotes from people like E. B. White, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Maurice Sendak, and Antoine de Saint Exupery are some of my favorites. Each month includes a pretty full-page illustrated quote with a section to record goals for the month.

  • Year at a glance planning pages
  • Weekly planning pages
  • Inspiring illustrated quotes
  • Monthly goals
  • Important dates
  • Monthly notes section
