Alright, I’m back! I’m keeping the other post up, but I’ll include the link up to this post too in case you still want to share a planning/scrapbooking/memory keeping post. As always, thanks to my co-host, Alexandra!
My 2019 Planner
It took me awhile to finally get a 2019 planner. I know, I know, it’s shocking! I went to Michael’s last weekend though and grabbed a Happy Planner. I’ve been using Happy Planners for a few years now and I really do love them, and they aren’t too expensive, so it was a good choice for my 2019 planner.
Unfortunately, there weren’t a ton of options left. I wanted to get the Classic size, but they only had Large. I’m not too upset though – I had a Large last year and it worked fine. Also, it was an undated planner. That means you have to go through and add in all the dates for the months, etc. because it allows you to start the planner whenever you want.
This photo is for my January page. None of these little inserts that start each month are terribly month or season specific because, of course, they don’t know where you’re going to start the months. Some are just designs and others have little sayings like this one: You Got This. My planner came with monthly stickers (two for each month) so that I could put them on the tabs and for the next page, which shows the whole month.
Here is a look at the monthly pages. I use these monthly pages for work/life happenings. I like that it has a Top Events and Notes page over on the left hand side. I’ve already filled out some of the Notes for the first couple months. It’s handy!
These are the weekly pages, which are set up the same as my planner last year. Sometimes there is a quote at the bottom, which is fun. I use these pages for my blog stuff. Obviously there are three little sections for each day, so I could add more information about a life/work event if I needed more room than what the monthly page gave me.
Finally, this is what the start of each month includes. It’s on the left hand side of the monthly insert I talked about above. My planner last year didn’t have a Currently section, and I missed it from 2017, so I’m really happy my 2019 planner has one again. I like to fill these out each month and share on Instagram. This page also includes a place for Notes, Birthdays, a Celebrate This Month area, and even a Remember This section. I like that there are various areas to put down important to-dos so it doesn’t all run together. I like to use my planner as a memory keeping device- I keep all of my old planners to look back on- so it’s nice to have an area to really highlight things I want to remember.
Do you have a 2019 planner yet? What do you think of mine?
