Brand New Recollections Hourly Planner!

Hello! Today I wanted to share my newest planner… the newest Recollections Hourly Planner, from Michaels. This planner starts in July and runs through all of 2019. I think I’m going to start using it in July and retire my current hourly planner because I love the subtle changes that were made to this year’s edition.Recollections Hourly Planner | JM Creates BlogI bought this Everyday Magic Hourly Planner because of its cuteness- and silver foil!

The Return of the Recollections Planner…

Hello! I wanted to share part of my daily planning routine with you today. I use my Happy Planner all the time, of course, but I also love using the Hourly Recollections Spiral Planner every night. The Erin Condren hourly planner first caught my attention last spring, and then Michaels came out with their own version last summer- so I had to try it!

I used it regularly from July-October, then I took a break for November & December. I started to miss it early this year, so I picked it up again, personalized it a bit more, and I am still hooked in May!Recollection Hourly Planner Update | JM Creates Blog

Recollection Hourly Planner Update | JM Creates BlogMy cover is from Erin Condren, but the guts of the planner is Recollections. It was the first way I customized this planner. I added this vellum sheet from The Planner Society to the inside front sheet. Instant personalization!Recollection Hourly Planner Update | JM Creates BlogI use this planner as a way to see how I spent my day, to track habits, work, dinners, weather, and more. I don’t decorate a lot… just stickers or washi here & there. I also use the hours literally- I’ve seen a lot of planners who use the hourly like a vertical and they just ignore the hours… but I actually like seeing the hours & how I spent them!

A peek at how I use it…Recollection Hourly Planner Update | JM Creates Blog

Update on the Recollections Hourly Planner

Last summer, when Recollections introduced their take on the hourly planner, I jumped on the bandwagon and purchased one. And, I loved it! I actually used it faithfully from July through October. And when the holidays came, I put it aside to try to make my planning life a little simpler. I don’t really need to use, like, 5 daily planners, right?

Well, times are a little slower now in the winter time, so I dug this planner back out and I remembered how much I actually enjoyed using it! I like to record how I spent my day. Plus, I spent a little time decorating and personalizing this planner some more… and I love looking at this planner sooo much now!

Update on the Hourly Recollections Planner

Hello there!

Just wanted to give an update on my Hourly Recollections planner, as I’m almost a month into it already! So far, I love it! I figured out earlier this year that I really like the whole tracking what-I-do-by-hour setup.This is the planner I fill out each evening as a record of what I did that day. I also track the weather and my social media for the day. At the end of the month on the lined page, I use that as a daily tracker for tasks and my mood.
