People don’t believe me when I say I still have a written planner. I work on my computer and often carry my laptop around, I read books on my iPad, and my phone is always within a foot of me. They don’t get why I don’t have a digital calendar that I can access on the go.
Because I like pretty. I like handwriting and stickers and washi tape and colorful pens. It’s my creative outlet. The fun starts with designing my planner. This year I chose to customize my Planner with Purple Trail. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many options!
First, do you want a Daily, Weekly, or Monthly? Or maybe you want one focused on Student, Teacher, or Mom? Or be specific with Wedding or Meal Planning only?
I clicked into Daily and there were 646 cover options! Yes! I narrowed it down to a few favorites and then basically said eeny meany miney mo. hahaha. I chose the All Things Grow With Love. Pretty, right?
Next areas to customize:
Size. 6″ x 8″ or 8.5″ x 11″
Cover. Laminated, Synthetic Cover with Frost Sheet, or Hardcover.
Personalize. See above how I add my name and graphics to the inside cover. Add to the front, front inside, back inside and back.
Color themed pages. Colorful or neutral gray.
Inside page options. Horizontal, Vertical. By the hour? 15 minute increments? Many choices.
Start date. Select the exact month you want to start. Doesn’t have to be January.
Add ons. LOTS – stickers, pocket folder, notes, to do lists, graph paper, fitness tracker, address book, and so much more.
There is a great video you can watch so you can see all the different options up close.
For me it’s all about different colored pens and stickers. I know some people color code by person, but I just choose a new color whenever I add a new event to the page. My favorite pens are the Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pens which you see in my picture, though I do have many types.
I love themed stickers. I sit down in the weekend and add them for the coming week around my events. Pumpkins for Fall, Stockings for Christmas, Flowers for Spring, you get it. Though my favorite are Inspirational Stickers that make me smile and feel good through out my week.
This is the 6″ x 8″ Weekly Planner with Horizontal layout and Laminate cover.
