Monday! And we’re so close to Christmas it’s almost unbelievable… 2016 is almost over.
If you’re in the planner shopping frenzy, good for you! We use the Volt planner, by the way, and really love it. It’s compact, sleek, and also has tons of space for notes, so we don’t have to carry around 2 notebooks at all.
