Welcome to another plan with me here on the blog. I’ve been so obsessed with the Plan As I Go style that I haven’t done a plan with me, which is essentially pre-planning, in quite some time. I have a lot of content coming this month of August from PLANdemonium to my back to school week!

I’ll be going on vacation in the middle of August and I wanted to do something fun to my monthly spread. I decided to use the Poolside Pops Darice sticker book, which I used in a spread previously. I love the stickers and the spread really screams Summer.
When I’m planning my monthly spread, it’s really just to put in bills, the weekends I have my nephews, when I get gas, and the occasional PPVs. This month I added not just WWE’s SummerSlam, but the Steelers pre-season games. I also forgot to add the Olympics beginning and ending so I went back and added that (not pictured). I added another pink circular sticker for the opening games and I made an arrow to the 21st to recognize the closing ceremony on the 21st.
I wanted the sidebar to be fun so I took some old packaging from the Target Dollar Spot and cut it to fit the sidebar. Being that I had to cut it there was a line in between so to cover that I took a card and marked in when Grad School would be over and voila. At the top I added a Happy Planner quote. To cover the unmarked days I used the fashion duct tape from Dollar Tree which is by far my favorite.
I used the labels I had purchased from Target and to make these work in the spread I had to cut them, but not my much. The rainbow design really worked well with the sticker book. When writing on these I used a Sharpie Fine Point opposed to my Pilot G2. I really want the PaperMate Ink Joy gel pens. I love the Pilot G2, I’m just not a fan of the smudging.
Being that I don’t have something happening every single day, I used the stickers to fill the empty space. Some may enjoy a clean look in their spread, but I wanted to try something different for the end of Summer. I usually don’t crowd my spread, well I haven’t lately, but I wanted to make use of these stickers.
PLANNER TIP: To save stickers in your stash when you have an event longer than one day, place the sticker the day it begins and use washi to mark the rest.
