QUICK TIP: Planner For The Non-Planner

Today I wanted to share with you a quick tip.  I truly love my planners.  They keep me on top of things and I really enjoy using them.  Not everyone enjoys pre-planning and keeping calendars etc.  Then there are individuals who want to keep a planner, but struggle with being dedicated to maintaining one.  Today I share with you a wonderful way to resolve that issue if you are not a person who likes to use a planner or calendar.  I hope you enjoy the video and find it helpful.  



The Video


I am giving away the planning pad that was featured in the above video.  You can simply enter below.  Good luck to everyone!

  1. Jahaira says:

    This is an awesome tip. I’ve been having a really hard time keeping up with a planner. I’ve actually have started to do bullet journaling. It’s been okay this past few weeks but we’ll see how that goes. I think this is simple and to the point which sounds more like me! Thank you! 🙂

  2. Lou Ann says:

    I prefer a regular planner generally, but I can totally see the benefit in a pad like this. For when you are feeling unmotivated or overwhelmed.

  3. Dorothy Holland says:

    I love both a planner and an organizer/filofax and note pads. I have that same one I got from Tueday Mornings about a month ago.

  4. I absolutely love this! Hope I win! woot woot!

  5. Kathy says:

    Great giveaway…….. Please enter me😊

  6. Sandie says:

    I love it! I use my planner but I’ll try this with my husband … I have tried all sorts to get him organised!!

  7. Joanna says:

    Thanks for the great tip Nikki!! I didn’t know there was such a thing. I love how it is laid out in different sections. I have never been used a planner, but I would certainly use one of these. I love all your ideas and your great taste.

  8. Dawn Thomas says:

    I like the planning pad. I usually use an organizer but on some days I think this would work too. I’m a visual person and I like how you can see everything on the same page.

  9. Cjay says:

    Great giveaway. Count me in please.

  10. Dottie says:

    Great idea ! I have my own planner but I think this would be perfect to have sitting out for the family to jot their daily plans on so we can plan on if we will have dinner together or on our own.

  11. Kamani Velez says:

    I’ve never used a planner pad but it looks like a good idea.

  12. KraftyScorpio says:

    I have a planner, but have never used a planner pad. Looks very handy and helpful.

  13. Mandy says:

    I really am a planner, but I would love either a non-planner planner or a regular planner. I am not picky, lol.
    Also, I adore your youtube channels and blog. I have been following you for about a year now and I am glad I found you on YouTube! Thank you for being such a great influence on my organizing skills at home, lol!

  14. Tammy Ford says:

    I really love this pad. I am a Planner but i could see this to be very useful with the family to hang on the frig each day! Love It Nikki.

  15. DAAIMAH says:

    This is a great suggestion. I would love to be more organized but I just haven’t found the right setup that would work for me. This is simple and easy. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Britty says:

    I’m looking for a good planner that my hubby and I can use. Both of us don’t use planners so I think this is a great way to start. Thanks Nikki!

  17. Sarah says:

    I love the concept of planners but find I don’t end up using mine as often as I should, which defeats the purpose. I’m keen to try a planner pad instead so that the important points for that day are within view 🙂

  18. Natasha says:

    Great tip for people how dont like calendars, planners or people with ADD.I think both.But this is a easy way to get organize.

  19. Sandy LeBatard says:

    I love all of your tips thanks for all you do.

  20. Liana Hanson says:

    Love this idea. I mostly use the computer’s calendar, notes and projects app as I’m always losing my notebooks and so a notebook planner would sometimes be forgotten at home. I do like this idea of planning my day of to do’s. Seems like if you write it down, you are more apt to do it. With the computer app sometimes you have to remember what you named the file and which app it was in!

  21. Michelle says:

    I prefer the planner pad. I like the idea of a full planner but I know me. It can sometimes be overwhelming for m

  22. michele says:

    this planner is great for me as i dont have so much going on but love to remind my self of things to do and add in bible quotes for the day as a spiritual reminder

  23. Samantha says:

    I actually use a planner but didn’t know that awesome pad existed and could totally use it for my office it’s a great way to have your day planned out at a glance. 🙂 Thanks for the video!!

  24. Bre says:

    Awesome giveaway, Nikki! I absolutely love this!!! I wish I had a Tuesday Morning close to me! I would SOO go & get myself one! Please enter me in the giveaway! Appreciate it (: (: <3 <3

  25. Tea says:

    I love this pad, even if I dont win this pad,do have the name of the pad maybe i can find one online.

  26. shernell says:

    Hi Nikki,
    I prefer a regular planner, but I love this idea of a planner pad. This is a great idea to keep on my desk during the day so I will not forget a task. I would love to win it. Thanks for the opportunity.

  27. Carolyn Saunders says:

    I just love this idea I hope I win!!!!

  28. Heidi martinez says:

    I use a regular planner now for work but those pads look cool for personal

  29. Lakeysha Webb says:

    I like the planer pad. Every year I pick up a new planer by march I’m over it! LOL

  30. Diann Evans says:

    I have never used this type of planner, this might be a better option for me. Thanks for sharing!

  31. Tab says:

    I think this would be a wonderful gift for my mother to help her remember different things she needs to get done during the day. She is not like me (scheduling every single hour of the day!) but she does like a list of things to accomplish. This would help her keep everything organized. Hope to win this pad, its quite pretty and quite girlie feminine. I love the things you pick up. You have such wonderful taste!

  32. Rosalyn Stadler says:

    I would prefer a regular planner and planner pad because I have a lot of things going on. LOL.

  33. Tae says:

    I really like the pad and the colors……i hope I when if not I gotta find a Tuesday morning

  34. Mary Sovie says:

    I love a planner, but this pad is excellent for capturing all the essentials of the day!!

  35. Tara Evilsizer says:

    I absolutely love this!!!

  36. dawn says:

    i think i would benefit more from the planner pad, i try and write down to do list but i tend to set them down and lose them. the planner pad would be an easy thing i could put a magnet on and stick to my fridge so i could keep up with it

  37. Sam Schaefer says:

    This is the cutest little note pad that I’ve seen in a long time! Where can I get one?

  38. Iyshwarya says:

    I use a Filofax and always end up with little bits of info written on random notepads and paper! That notepad is perfect, covers all the todos! Wish it was available in Ireland! 🙂

  39. Morag says:

    I have seen one of those before and I thought it was a great idea so you can everything in mind right in front of you – that way I won’t forget anything. Thanks for having the giveaway.

  40. Corina B. says:

    Great idea! We don’t have those where I live, but I think it’s an easy DIY project – maybe not as colorful, it will empty my cartridges in no time :))

  41. Chantal says:

    What a great idea Nikki! I find it difficult to stick with a planner (a little intimidating too for the novice I am) and I’m totally enthousiastic with this little easy to do pad 🙂

  42. Clara says:

    Great idea, i wish i can find something like this here. Have a wonderful day!

  43. Clara says:

    Ah, great idea is this planner pad 🙂

  44. Jessica says:

    I love this idea, I use to be a fanatic about planning and keeping a planner but I just got tired of carrying that bulky leather planner in my purse. This is a great way of keeping up, keeping it simple and still do everything I need to do. Great Idea… congrats to the winner I am not and if I am not I am going to make my own pages. Thanks for the idea and God Bless.

  45. Lisa says:

    I LOVE this note pad. Do you think Target or Wlamart would have them? I live in Niagara Falls Canada and we do not have Tuesday morning. Right now I use a lined notepad to jot my ideas/info down. and I use a calendar to remember certain dates. I would LOVE to win this..Thank you so much for posting this, I will be on the look out for one, wish me luck 🙂

  46. Candy Centeno says:

    I love this planning idea! I usually write on sticky notes and leave them all over the place. I think this all in one note pad, keeps it together and neatly organized.
    Pleas enter me in the giveaway!
    Thanks, Candy

  47. Kersten says:

    With 4 children and one on the way, I need quick organization! Great idea!

  48. Audrey N says:

    I love the idea of a planner and I have one but I don’t fully use it. This notepad is right up my alley.

  49. evangelina alcoser says:

    I am addicted to planning.. I have planners for everything.. this idea here would be totally for my children and husband.. Love it!

  50. Ramya says:

    Iam a non planner as you mentiooned 🙂 so love to recieve this give away and start my planning 🙂

  51. Laura says:

    Never used a planner pad before, great idea! Have a nice day!

  52. Cathy says:

    I love that idea. I have never noticed these pads before but I’ll be sure to be on the look out for them now.

  53. Kimberley Danzey says:

    Every January I purchase a planner but I never look at it everyday. Thank you for the tips. I would like to try the pad maybe that will work out better. Thank you for another great tip.

  54. Paula Sellers says:

    I actually like both ideas. I would use them in different ways. My planner I would use on-the-go and the pad I would leave at home in my office so that I can do more home management. I will look for the pad for my husband, though. He is not a planner by any stretch of the word! I have tried but he says he has everything in his head. However, the problem is that being a pastor, sometimes he has too much in his head and begins to ask me what he was suppose to do! LOL!!! But I guess that is why we are together…thank God. LOL!

  55. Brenda says:

    I love planners, but don’t always keep up with them. I am loving this idea though. Love that it has many sheets to it and love the simplicity of it, but can keep one organized.

  56. Radi says:

    Loved the planner……so pretty, looks very functional, and something simple enough that I can use it everyday.

  57. Freda says:

    I tried to make my own about a year ago but didn’t have a computer software that would please me. I had no idea this was already invented! LOL! Very clever idea…if I do say so myself, lol.

  58. Kay says:

    Though I keep a planner for my family, my youngest daughter homeschooling and myself…I always make to do lists for the children and myself each day. 🙂 I love the beauty of the one you are sharing!! So orderly!! 😉 I order my planner with these divisions…but now my daily lists. LOVE IT!! Thanks Nikki!! k

  59. Melanie says:

    Great giveaway! We don’t have “Tuesday Morning” in Canada. I have just recently started to use a planner, but I absolutely would love to win the desk pad planner! Thanks for doing this contest!

  60. Kathleen says:

    I’m not a planner person – much to carry with me – so think this planner is a great idea! It would be easier to tuck a planner page in my purse or pocket. Thanks for such a great idea!

  61. Dana H. says:

    I’m more of a notepad kind of girl. Thanks for the great find.

  62. Benne says:

    What a neat tool!

  63. Evelyn says:

    It’s so nice of you to offer this cute way to get a little more organized or a nice addition to those seasoned planner-types.

  64. Evelyn says:

    Ooops, I commented before I entered so I’ll have to double post in order to follow your directions properly. I’ve been a Franklin Covey planner person for a couple of decades and wouldn’t know where I’m supposed to be without my planner!

  65. Sonya Howard says:

    I really need these planner and pads. I am a work at home mom of 2 91 with Down Syndrome). I also run 2 businesses. My life is so hectic and it is hard to keep my life in order. I admire you so much! You are a great role model to young business women!

  66. Lisa says:

    I prefer to use small journals to keep my to-do lists. I try to use a calendar/planner every year, but for some reason it never quite works out! 🙂

  67. Jeanene Crowley says:

    Love your website and Youtube channel! I tried to leave a comment on the giveaway site and I must have done something wrong. Oh well, as long as you know I entered! Thank you!

  68. Jennifer says:

    Hi Nikki, You have been a Huge inspiration to me. I just showed my mother some of your video’s today, to help her out as well. Neither of us currently use planners ( though I have in the past) this pad would be great to get me back in the swing of things.

  69. Margaret says:

    I like both, but use a regular planner more for work purposes.

  70. Hope says:

    Great idea. Simply and easy!

  71. Alison Zappia says:

    Thank you for all your wonderful posts, You bring a great blessing to my life with your beautiful organisational ideas. I prefer an Organisational Pad, it is easy to view at at glance.

  72. Kathy says:

    I am not a very organized person so this would be great sitting beside my computer. I usually take a cup of coffee and go through my emails first thing in the morning and this would be a great help to organize my day.

  73. Nina O says:

    I love having both. The pad can be so convenient when heading out to the store or when running errands. It keeps all of your to do’s accessible and within reach. I do love the planner as well because it allows even more space to record, and prep for the days ahead

  74. Andrea A. says:

    I love this idea! Fingers crossed!

  75. Boo Songz says:

    Is this called a planning pad? I want to get one if I don’t win.

  76. Kathy Ueoka says:

    I love this idea! I’ve been to one store and didn’t find it but I’m going to keep looking! Each time I start using an organizer, it ends up too heavy in my bag so this may be the solution! Thanks so much!

  77. Sally says:

    Another great tip Nikki. I’ve tried a few of these pads but struggle to find one that covers everything. This ones awesome. I love all the little different areas including the thought if the day. Much nicer than scraps of paper….beautiful colours too

  78. Janice says:

    I do prefer a planner, but currently don’t have the planner of my dreams. I love the idea of this type of pad. I have something similar, but it doesn’t have all the features of this one. Thank you so much for the chance to win this cute pad! 🙂

  79. Cynthia says:

    I would prefer a regular planner but sometimes get lost in time with a heavy work schedule and not much personal time. However, I could see the benefit of this little pad in an attempt to try and stay more focused on other things as well. TYFS Nikki Hugz

  80. Kelly says:

    Love the colors and simplicity of this!

  81. Wendy says:

    I use a calendar religiously but not a planner. Instead I have notes, lists, post-it’s that I use on a daily basis. This planning pad would work perfectly in conjunction with my calendar that does a pretty good job organizing 4 children and 2 adults.

  82. Gina R says:

    Love all your Tips and Recipes Nikki ! Thank you …

  83. Gail Fuhlman says:

    I would love a planner, because I am finding that I need to write things down, and not try to do it in my head. Thank you so much for your tips, and for this giveaway.

  84. Lois says:

    I prefer the pad, I always end up leaving planner in car.

  85. Shalome Westberg says:

    love that planner pad!

  86. Becky C says:

    Love anything that will help keep my day organized and running smoothly! I’ve not disciplined myself to use the wall planner I have filled out, I think this will force me to look at it every morning and make my lists just for today!

  87. Candi says:

    I have always used a regular planned, but find myself wanting to use a pad at work, because I use my iphone for appts now.

  88. Nilaja Whitaker says:

    Hey Nikki! I would love to win this cute pad! I’m a mother of 3 young girls & a busy military husband, but I just can’t keep up with a planner. I just forget about them!! This pad would fit right into my early morning routine though. I could plan out the day before everyone gets up! Thank u so much for the chance to win it 😉

  89. Kristina says:

    Nikki, I appreciate the time you take out of your busy day to make all your videos. They are very informative and I like that you get right to the point of the video and you explain everything so well. Again…thank you and God Bless.

  90. lekesa Hunter says:

    What a fantastic idea!!! I really need this to help me plan .

  91. Krista says:

    I would love either! I love both the pad and the planners. Yay!

  92. Dicksi says:

    Love the planner pad! I have a planner that I use rarely and a calendar that I decorate & keep imp. dates, appt., etc. scheduled. Love the colorfulness of the pad–motivating! Thanks for the chance to win!

  93. Mary R. says:

    I would use this! I like the idea of a planner, but have not actually ever kept one. I like the bright colors and the dedicated areas of this planner paper pad. Great idea.

  94. Dee says:

    I prefer the Planner Pad.

  95. Lisa Foster says:

    I love planners, but I never use them. I think the pad is a great idea!

    good ideas

  98. Janice says:

    Nikki, your the best! Another great idea. I love the planner pad – easy.

  99. Stephanie says:

    Love your tips! I like planners. I could also use this pad like a daily dashboard to kickstart your day. I went to Tuesday Morning to find this pad and found a smaller more expensive version. I am going to keep an eye out for this one!

  100. Dottie says:

    Hi Nikki- I love all of your ideas! You are so inspiring!!! The planning pad is brilliant!!!
