2018 Planner Lineup

Let the planning commence! I am officially back on my game (after a depressing loss for my Steelers). Well, I haven’t stopped planning, but I haven’t been sharing much on the blog since my Christmas set up in my traveler’s notebook. We’re halfway through January so what better time to share my planning systems for 2018. 2017 I had a lot of planners that I was planning to use, but ultimately I didn’t end the year with any of them. I feel like I’ve finally found planner peace with my current planner. Enough rambling, let’s get to it.

Plan With Me: B6 Traveler’s Notebook

November already? I wanted to share a spread of how I’m currently planning. I’m using a B6 traveler’s notebook filled with 3 mini journals (lined/dot grid/grid) and other goodies. The one I use for weekly planning is a lined journal that can be found anywhere. With stickers, washi, and my handy dandy pens, I turned bland into grand (cheesy, I know).

B6 Traveler’s Notebook Flip Through

I’ve cheated on my Happy Planner and I’ve officially switched to a traveler’s notebook. I still love the discbound system, but the size of the classic Happy Planner does not work for daily use. I needed something compact and something that works for everything. I wanted a central location to plan and journal. I am no traveler’s notebook guru, but I’ve finally found a system that works. Forget the pretty planning. I’ve found functional planner peace.

Dashboards for Any Planner

Cheers to the weekend and another post on the blog. I am no stranger to sharing my planner obsession. I am a strong believer in writing things down and most importantly, getting them done. I use stickers, colorful pens, etc. to draw attention to certain moments of a day. Of course, that’s not needed. I will say that the more decorative my planner is the more I use it. This post is all about making inexpensive dashboards for your planner with materials you may already have.
