I recently bought myself a Happy Planner, I know I know I already own one too many!
Attested to in my previous post
But bear with me, Grrrrrr (get it?)
The reason I like this one so far is that it seems so customisable. The pages are easily removed and added back with the discs that it has.
I am hoping to make it a bit more functional for myself rather than just decorative, but that all depends on the effort I put in.
So far I’m using a classic sized planner, with a vertical layout. Got mine from Amazon UK (smile for the added Crohns charity donation bonus) but shop around. You can buy from happy planner directly, or FB groups, ebay etc.
I think I need to determine exactly what I want to get out of this planner, besides the pure joy of adding stickers. I think I’m going to have to do lists, finance and mood and symptom tracking at a glance where I can see it in my vertical layouts week on week.
I may purchase an extension pack as they call them which is like an add on specifically designed for a category like wellness or budget planning. But this would then mean flipping to these sections separately.
The fab news is I can jiggle it all around easily and when the need arises (not talking about my wobbly bits, and there’s a few)
I am very excited about my foray into this type of planner and hope I keep using it regularly.
Here are my first few layouts. This is mainly before I have added lots of extra written things in and cute stickers as the week has gone on
Downside, the planner doesn’t have a pen holder on it, so I improvised and made my own using glue dots and some elastic off a sticker book. I’m sure I have seen covers that the planner goes inside that have pen holders but it will do in the meantime.
Well I could waffle all day about this but I don’t want to bore you too much or scare you off.
Happy Planning, Trotter over and out.
