Hello everyone! So lately I have definitely jumped on the "Plan with me" blogs and YouTube videos. Watching people plan and create their spreads is so relaxing and therapeutic to me, so I decided to start my own! I am a stationary junkie, so I already had tons of stickers, gel pens, washi tape, and all the other artsy craftsy things! Plus, I will take any excuse to go to Michael's and Hobby Lobby. This is only my second spread, so it isn't the best, but I will show you how I planned my week using the Happy Planner!
So I contemplated between the Happy Planner and the Erin Condren Life Planner for a few weeks. The EC Life Planner is BEAUTIFUL, but the price tag is pretty steep.. So I decided to go with the Happy Planner. The Happy Planner retails for $29.99 at Michael's craft store, but I had a 40% off coupon, so I could definitely justify the price. They also sell the sticker books and planner accessories made specifically for the Happy Planner. Maybe one day I will purchase the EC Life Planner and determine which one I like best! For now, the HP is perfect for me.
As I said earlier, I do have tons of stickers at home. But I did end up purchasing one of the sticker books made for the HP. I believe this was $4.99 and it has about 4 or 5 pages, which is great! I also have sticker printer paper, and have been able to print my own stickers off of Pinterest. Pinterest has TONS of free, printable planner stickers. I use my regular HP printer and fill it with Silhouette printer paper and VIOLA! You have your very own planner stickers. The only downside to this is you have to be pretty good with scissors to cut out the stickers.
I personally like to plan my weeks on Sundays to prepare for the week ahead. This is a great way to stay organized and de-stress for the beginning of a new week. I find myself excited for Sundays plan and cannot wait for more spreads to come!
