Thank you Cheryl and keep the submissions coming! I’d also loooooove anyone who is excited about their 2023 system to share — Prospective Planner Stack Peace?

Q&A: Email backlog AND twin baby book backlog?!
Yep, the same listener with both! 1000% understand how one might get behind on email with twin babies or toddlers, but I think the same principles apply – you CAN clean up both of these loose ends if it matters to you.
Email – I advised to bulk archive old stuff to declare partial email bankruptcy and just go through the most recent month or so in more detail. If it’s on page 352 it’s essentially invisible to you anyway, right?!
Baby book – think about what your goals are. Preserving the memories? Having a fun process? If it’s the former, maybe throwing together a photobook (which can be done imperfectly in one afternoon) would suffice. If it’s the latter, maybe think about how you could catch up 3 months at a time and how you might plan things out to make it fun and low-pressure.
2023 Goal Planner!
I opted for a rather open ended option — the Erin Condren 2023 monthly planner! This has just enough structure for me plus the luscious paper I love from EC. Each monthly section has a tabbed dashboard page, monthly calendar layout, and then 5 sheets (10 pages) of blank notes, plus there are 20 blank sheets in the back.
I plan on including annual, quintile and monthly goals in here, plus keeping track of bigger projects.
