Multiple Planner Set Up

Hi my name is Lakia and I use more than one planner. Do I need to use more than one planner? Of course not. Why not consolidate everything into one location. Well, maybe next year I will.

Work Planner Set Up

Welcome to another post here on the blog. I wanted to share with you all how I merged together two planners to create my work planer. Another planner added to my 2017 planner rotation? Yup. Well for good reason. Instead of going out and buying a 6 ring planner from Michaels, which I really wanted, I took a planner I wasn’t using and added leftovers from a system I previously used.

Planning for 2017: Happy Planner

I am no stranger to the Happy Planner. The Happy Planner is what got me into the planner craze to begin with. As a brand evolves, of course their product evolves as well. The Happy Planner line has done just that. From deluxe to hardcover covers, 3 sizes of planners, box kits, and let’s not forget, tickers galore.

My Planning for 2017 series would not be complete without a Happy Planner review. I did a review of the seasonal box kit, but then the ‘This Is Your Year’ neutral planner was released and I’m in love! I got it on Black Friday when it was $10. Awesome score.
