My Favorite Things

Wow! This week has been so super busy, but it's been a great week! Guess what this week is!! It' s my birthday week! Hooray! I turn the big 31 on Friday or you could say it's my third annual 29th birthday! :)

Okay enough birthday foolishness, on to my favorite things! A few weeks ago while browsing through Target I found a display of wonderful notepads. The notepads are by Jean Chatzky for Franklin Covey. Jean Chatzky is a financial guru-kind of like Suze Orman. I found the line of products to not only be helpful but super cute!

I purchased a Needs and Wants To Buy List. I love that it has separate columns for needs and wants. It also has a place to write your budget and the amount you actually spent. This little note pad has really helped me cut out a lot of my unnecessary spending. It makes me think before I buy.

I also purchased the meal planning pad. It helps you plan your week of meals and compile your shopping list!


The last little treasure I found was the Worth Noting pad. It is great for multi-tasking! Here's what the Franklin Covey web-site had to say about it.

"Juggling multiple projects? Keep track of them all with this innovative notebook. This small twin wire notebook has four stair-stepped sections (one for each project) that can help you keep your tasks together and get more done. Use each section to organize notes, projects, Family members, and more."

All the notepads are reasonably priced. They are available at Target or on-line at Franklin Covey. The line also offers other products to help with financial matters.

Oh I saw those the other day at Target but I didn't pick any of them up. I wish I had now! I didn't see the meal plan notepad, but I will definitely be going back for that! Thanks for posting this :)

I saw these at Target it too, and I want the budgeting one, since I am so bad at budgeting! Let me know how the rest of them work out for you, I'd love to know if it's worth the investment!
