If you follow me on Instagram then you’ve already gotten a sneak peek at this financial planner but if you don’t follow me yet (you should!;) then let me tell you all about it!
For the past few months I’ve been working with Niki and Jenna of Ninj and Ninj to create a super comprehensive and helpful financial planner. When they approached me to collaborate/consult with them on a planner I knew I wanted to be a part of the project. You see, ever since 6th grade I’ve been using a paper planner. Even now that we have access to zillions of digital calendars I still dutifully order my paper calendar every single year. There’s just something about writing things on paper that make them seem more concrete or doable or something. Plus, I like crossing things off, and being able to look back at all the stuff I did over the year. I definitely prefer paper planners over digital planners any day of the week.
The main goal with the planner was to make it easy to use and extremely comprehensive. We didn’t want you to have to jerry-rig anything to make it work for you. Everything you need to have your life and finances organized is in this planner. From dealing with your monthly cash-flow to planning for the future you will be completely covered with this planner!
Oh! And if you happen to be thinking, “Urm… but, it’s kind of almost the middle of the year!” Guess what? With this planner you fill-in your own dates so you can begin your year at any time. No need to wait ’til January to get your shit together. Today is the day.
Let’s talk about the features!
• Goal planning
• 12 Budget-planning spreads that follow each month
• Monthly credit card tracking
• Yearly total pages to track spending, saving, debt pay-off (and more)
• Long term planning pages
• Net worth calculation page
• Contacts and note pages
• Tear-out grocery lists with weekly meal planning on the reverse side of the page
• Cash envelope
Each section is also tabbed for your convenience.
Dimensions: 5.5″ x 8.5″ and about .75″ thick
Cover: 120lb cover stock and thick, clear protective plastic
It’s super cute, includes motivating quotes throughout, and the quality of the planner is top-notch. It was such a pleasure getting to work with Niki and Jenna on this project. They’ve really got it going on, and they couldn’t have been better to work with.
This is the first collab I’ve done like this so I’d love for you to get one, and tell me what you think about it so tweaks can be made for future versions of it.

Also, I have to know… do you say jury-rig, jerry-rig, or jerry-built? It’s gotta be a regional thing, right?
