Plan With Me: January 4th-10th

Welcome to my first official plan with me of 2016. I’m adding a lot of content to the blog this year with the goal of monthly themes. This month is all about focusing on cleansing the mind, body, and spirit. I’m decluttering areas around me and getting focused and back on track. I’ve started my declutter series and my Motivational Monday series will be starting back next monday which I can’t wait to share. Thanks in advance to all the readers/followers. I really hope you enjoy the content coming your way.

Last week was New Years week and I used printables for my spread. I added in some sticky notes that I purchased from Target along with a few icon stickers. If you are beginning to plan, Target has really stepped up their game as far as catering to the ever growing planner community. Check out my full spread from last week below:

As for this week I didn’t really have a theme. I just filled out the middle section with pre-cut scrapbook paper. The brown really worked well with the bottom. I then went into my sticker binder to see what stickers I could use to make this layout work. I knew there were things I wanted to get done this week from a general list to daily tasks.

For 2016 I plan on using my planner in three general sections, but the middle section switches up depending on the week. Sometimes its to do while other times it marks appointments I may have. It could switch up, but I definitely enjoy the three different sections. Take a closer look at my layout, before the ink, below:

Aside from the checklists, football stickers, weekend banner, and trash cans, everything else is a sticky note. I incorporated a lot of the sticky notes from Target this week to mark my blog posts and Monday/Tuesday marks my TV shows. I’ve been enjoying the simplicity of the post-it notes. They’re great if you don’t have headers and you can layer any type of sticker on top.

This layout is definitely one of my simpler layouts, but this layout shows that you don’t necessarily need Etsy stickers to make the planner work. You can use different colored pens and sticky notes to create a spread. I used fewer Etsy stickers in this spread then I have previously, but I’ve been enjoying using the sticky notes I’ve been hoarding from Target.

I plan in future months to have more themes especially with Summer coming I plan to incorporate more floral designs and for football season expect to see Steeler overload! For this month I kept it pretty simple as I am new to decorating planners with stickers which make it not only pretty, and at times busy, but it also gives it a scrapbook feel. Below is a pic of the stickers that I frequently have used this month. Majority are from Michaels 0516151016_2 Be sure to check out the video below for an in depth view of how I plan.

Planner Haul Featuring Target, Michaels, & AC Moore

I’m officially PLANNER OBSESSED! Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been purchasing items to decorate my planner and keep it organized from Target, Dollar Tree, and Michaels. I LOVE Michaels way more than I love AC Moore AC Moore just isn’t appealing to me anymore. As for Michaels I love the coupons that they offer constantly and every single one in my area that I’ve been to has more of a variety. Below are close up pictures of the items of purchased from each store:
