When you delve into the planner obsessed world you realize there are a few things that planners consider a necessity: pens, washi tape, stickers. Lots and lots of stickers. Some people use their planners more like scrapbooks. The pages are filled with stickers, washi tape and fancy writing. Me? I need my planner to be functional. Yes, I do have some pens and washi tape I like to use. But I have so many commitments between myself, daughter, husband and family I need as much space as possible to write everything down. If I do not write it down, there is a good chance it won’t get done.
I do use the calendar on my phone. Specifically I use the Google Calendar. That is mostly for when I am out and about. It is to convenient to check when the next event is happening to help me keep track of time better.
I do put some stickers on my pages. I like some seasonal ones like colored leaves, acorns, pumpkins, and Christmas trees just to dress up the page a bit. I have ordered personalized stickers from Erin Condren and I am just phanatic about a Etsy shop called Planner Penny. They are removable! She designs Monthly sets to match the color schemes of the Erin Condren Life Planner. They are imaginative and useful. I have a new shipment on the way. I cannot wait for them to arrive. I will post pictures soon.
Above is an example of a layout of a week in my planner.
How do you decorate your calendar/planner?
