New Year, New Memories

It’s 2015 and a blank canvas is in front of you! There’s a year full of opportunities to fill your AT-A-GLANCE with outstanding memories you’ll never forget. Every time you write something in your planner, you’re documenting your day. Once the month is done, you’ll be able to look back and see everything you’ve accomplished and all the fun you had doing it!

AT-A-GLANCE Collection

Goals/Resolutions:

What are your big goals for 2015? Are you working toward a promotion at work? Running a half marathon? Starting your own blog? No matter what you’re aspiring toward, track your goals for 2015 with your AT-A-GLANCE planner. Break down your big goals into smaller weekly or monthly accomplishments for you to check off, and write these steps on each monthly tab or at the top of each week. After all, it’s easier to conquer big goals with baby steps, plus you’ll see you’re closer to reaching your objectives!

Big Events:

What big events do you have coming up in 2015? Going on any big vacations? Start looking, booking, and getting ready for an exciting trip ahead of time. Don’t let the time slip away before your vacation—figure out the details ahead of time so you can relax and enjoy your trip once the date arrives. Have a special date planned for a wedding this year? No matter if it’s yours or if you’re attending, use your AT-A-GLANCE to schedule what you need to do before the big date; whether it’s a reminder to buy a gift, attend a bridal shower, or book a hotel for the reception. Even if an event is as little as your kid jumping from elementary to middle school, make it a big deal! Plan something special to celebrate the day, like going out for pizza and doing one of their favorite activities such as playing games at the arcade. After all, time flies and sooner than later they’ll be in high school.

Sharing A Memory

Making Memories

Great memories, our lives are filled with them. There are endless memories that we look back on, they’re what make our lives worth living. From the first day of school, when you were so nervous; your first speeding ticket; your first job; additions to the family whether, they be furry or not — these are all memories that you will never forget.

Now you’re a big kid, always juggling so many to-do lists and appointments that you have to write in your planner the next time you have a double date. From where do so many memories originate? Where do they start? Your planner. Plans for Dinner

What’s coming up this week? Happy hour plans? Dinner outing with a friend? You never know which plans you’ll remember forever but once they happen, you know. When you have a friend over just to catch up, and suddenly you are both laughing hysterically from sharing stories. It’s a time like that you’ll treasure and the memory all began with “Sarah over for dinner” in your planner.

 

Your AT-A-GLANCE® is a place to plan your future memories and a place to look back and reminisce about the old ones. You can flip back in your planner to a few months ago and see “Work Outing.” Little did you know, that would be the night when your boss first told you that you received the promotion you’ve been working so hard to get. Or you can flip back to the “Conference” you had early in the year where you met someone that would later become your fiancé.

You never know where your plans are going to take you, or what memories they will hold, but they all started somewhere and that place is your AT-A-GLANCE. Your AT-A-GLANCE is like your own personal memoir holding all your memories from each day in the year. It’s a place where every day and every moment is yours.

It's Your Day

Eco-Friendly Planners

Recycle

Every year there is one thing that should always be scheduled in your planner – buying a new one.  When choosing a new planner you might want to use the same format, or you may want to try something new! But when looking for a new planner have you ever considered how much of the planner is made from recycled content? It is time for you to consider recycled planners, since not all planners are made the same!

Recycled Planner

Here at AT-A-GLANCE we love to recycle, after all we are a paper company! When choosing our paper we think about how conscious you are of the environment; that’s why all of our planners are made from at least 30% recyclable materials. So no matter which AT-A-GLANCE planner you are looking at, it’s a green product!

We even offer a few planners that are made of 100% recycled paper! In these recycled planners there is an eco-friendly tip on each page to give you new ideas on how to be green in all areas of your life!

 
Buying a new planner also brings up another issue – what do you do with your old one?

If your planner is wire bound, check wGreen Tip1ith your local recycling facility if you need to remove the wire before recycling!

Did you know that, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, your paper planner could become over 5,000 different paper products once it’s recycled like coffee filters, bandages, masking tape, hospital gowns, and much more?

So the next time you’re ordering your new AT-A-GLANCE planner consider if you want a recycled planner, and don’t forget to recycle your old one when you’re finished!

What’s So Special About Academic Planners?

An academic planner starts in July and ends in June. But what’s the purpose of having a planner that starts in July? There’s no difference in the format between planners, so what’s the big deal? Well, here’s what we know:

Students Love Academic PlannersAcademic Planner

When you’re a student and your planner aligns with your school year, it’s nice. Everything aligns well between your school work and your planner.  Plus as a student, you’re taking notes, remembering readings, and scheduling assignments for classes. An academic planner helps you prioritize what needs to be done!

Teachers Love Academic Planners

As a teacher, you’re always thinking in the school year schedule. Once you associate all your plans and to-do lists with the school season, it’s likely you’ll prefer an academic planner. After all, teachers have a lot to keep track of so they need a planner that fits their lifestyle!

Parents Love Academic Planners

Parents, like teachers, tend to compare everything to the school season and schedule. So when the kids have sports or music practice, parents simply like their planners to align with their kids schedules.

Overall, people like their academic planner so when their year starts in July, they have a fresh start. Plus, the process of writing things down helps you remember, and what better place to write down things to remember than in your AT-A-GLANCE planner.

So if you’re a student, teacher or parent you may prefer an academic planner over a regular planner that starts in January. We give you lots of options to choose from, like starting your planner in July, so you can find the planner that’s perfect for you!

You can find our academic planners at Staples, Office Depot, Office Max, or online here.

Summer

Organizing Your Summer

Summer is a big deal! Even though summer officially begins June 21, life is starting to get crazy now.   There are so many events and plans that occur in the summer, and it’s easy to get overwhelmed.  You have holiday plans, weddings, vacations, kids to keep track of, and more. All these things will keep you busy – but what’s the best way to keep track of the summer without adding any extra stress to your plate? At-A-Glance planners and calendars can help keep your summer organized.

AT-A-GLANCE Appointment BookFor an organized summer we recommend a few products to keep you on track everywhere you go.   First, an appointment book is necessary. Depending on your needs, your appointment book could be daily, weekly, or monthly and could have time increments in your days if you prefer. In a planner, it’s easy to flip through the pages to see exactly what you’re doing and when.  Appointment books are also great for taking notes that apply to your schedule so you have all the information you need in one place. An appointment book is all about what works best for you to help you manage your schedule.

AT-A-GLANCE Wall CalendarNext, it’s great to have a calendar at home to compliment your personal and mobile calendars.  An erasable wall calendar is a great way to keep your family up to date with all the ever changing family plans. Because the calendar is erasable, it is easy to make changes without making a big mess.

AT-A-GLANCE Calendar

 

Lastly, if your kids are busy bees you might need a calendar dedicated to their schedules only.  You can write down the times of soccer games, work schedules, project due dates, and more. Kids, no matter what age, always have a lot of activities going on, and a calendar dedicated solely to their schedule can help keep everyone organized.

 

Summer is almost here and usually that means plans get hectic, but this year your schedule doesn’t need to be crazy.  It’s much easier to stay organized when you have the right tools to plan your summer. Use At-A-Glance to help organize and plan your summer. Now you can enjoy your down time and know where you need to be.  Be the boss of your schedule rather than letting your schedule be the boss of you.
