A year ago I found the planner community. I fell in love with the colors, stickers, and organization. I began my search on Instagram by searching #planner. I quickly found a wide variety of planners.
I have used an agenda since middle school. I love color coding subjects and events. I especially loved if the school agenda came with stickers!
One of the first planners I found on my search was Plum Paper. I like how you can customize the front of the planner as well as buy add on inserts i.e. for your direct sales business.
The most popular planner I found was the Erin Condren. I love the layout of her planner along with the monogram covers. However, the price point was too high for me.
Then I found me and my Big Ideas Happy Planner. I fell in love with the disc system and bright colors. The layout is very similar to the Erin Condren life planner. I like how you can easily add new pages or take out months you aren’t using.
Happy Planners are 18 months and can be found at Hobby Lobby or Michaels. They have tons of unique accessories like stickers, a specific hole punch for the discs, and washi tapes that match the planner’s theme.
Last Fall I bought my first Happy Planner from Hobby Lobby. I was able to use the 40% off coupon and bought it for $15! Next I needed stickers. I took my search back to Instagram and used the #planner and #stickerobessed. Several planner girls tag the sticker shops in their photos.
I buy most of my planner stickers from Etsy shops. Here are a few of my favorite sticker shops.
I usually sit down Sunday evenings to plan for the week ahead and decorate. It’s calming for me to listening to music or a YouTube video while planning my week.
I have posted each weekly spread on my Instragram over the past year. Check those out at MsAmandaSmith11
