Coffee Brain Plans Etsy shop will be offering 30% off everything in the shop and I’ve been adding so many new things leading up to the sale and will continue to add more!

Let me know if you’ll be visiting any shops during the sale!!
One of the biggest tips I can give when trying to better your life is to find a life role model. Someone you can relate to that seems to have the same goals as you do. Even better if this person has accomplished these goals.
This is where my role model comes in.
A couple of nights ago, I was watching a Plan With Me video and you know how YouTube will automatically play a video that is related? Well somehow I ended up on this video about The Simplest Budgeting Method EVER and I haven’t stopped watching videos by these people.
She is “a Family Finance and Frugal Living expert”, as quoted from her website. She is a blogger that talks about budgeting, meal planning, family, etc. Everything I’ve been wanting to improve at. She has a voice and talking style that just draws me. She’s hilarious. I am loving it so much.
I am for real so inspired.
So far besides the budgeting video I’ve mentioned above, I’ve found such helpful and inspiring information in other videos.
I’m a mom to two young girls (6 and 1) and my nephew has recently started living with us (age 9). I work a very busy full-time job as the front desk supervisor for a seasonal resort. My drive to and from work is 45 minutes each way.
I opened my Etsy shop about a year ago. At the time I had a newborn baby and was returning to work in a few months. But I was so in love with all things planner related that my shop wasn’t work. I enjoyed finding adorable washi and pens to add to my shop. I love designing stickers. There were days where I had to force myself to go down to my office and work, but often I was excited about it.
My shop is still relatively small and doesn’t bring in any big money, but it brings in enough to make it worth it for me.
Things I’ve done this weekend to help my Etsy shop along:
Printed 50 Christmas sticker samples that I’m donating to another shop’s holiday box.
Printed 20 hand drawn sticker samples that I’m swapping with another shop as part of the Great Canadian Planner Sale Fall Spooktacular.
Got some happy mail ready for some of my planner buddies.
Organized some of my washi stock.
Browsed Instagram for planner inspiration & happiness
