Goodbye February and HELLO MARCH! I wanted to share my monthly spread with you all was well as reminding you of my new planning schedule. I will be providing at least two plan with me’s per month not including my monthly layout. This will avoid any redundancy in my monthly recaps. Be sure to check out my February recap HERE. Also be sure to click all links highlighted throughout the post.
For this month I went with an Easter design since Easter falls early this year. The stickers are from a Darice sticker book that I purchased last year from Michaels for just 10 cents. Yes, 10 cents. Try to get the sticker books off season and you’ll get a great deal.
I didn’t want to add too much to my spread simply because I don’t use it throughout the month. It’s a reference, but it’s great to mark off bills, events, appointments at-a-glance. I don’t have much going on this month, but I loved using the Target Up&UP neon Labels to mark my bills. I cut them in half and then another cut to turn them into page flags. I usually used a decorative sticker to mark my bills, but I love this way so much more.
Also instead of marking my pay days with ‘Pay Day’ stickers, I like covering the number with a money sticker to note it. It’s easier and takes up less space. The sidebar features any appointments or events I have for the month. I did this in February and it took away the clutter of marking my chiropractor appointments every single Tuesday. This month I have not only my appointments, but a Wine & Painting date I’ll have with my friends on Good Friday. Again, not taking up space in the monthly spread with a huge sticker.
The only thing that I add throughout the month are gas stickers because I do like to track how much I’m spending in that area.
I love the clean look of this spread. It’s functional and if need be, I have space left throughout the month and the sidebar to add. This is definitely my favorite monthly spread that I’ve done this year. I’ve finally found a system that works and keeps the clutter away. Check out the stickers/washi used below:
