I am 100% a personal size planner girl. In total I have seven personal size binders in my collection, Why? because I can change out the ‘guts’ of the planner, to me its like changing bags, once you grow tried of one, you move into another. My current planner is the perforated mint Kikki K.
This is my view when I open up my planner.
I keep a selection of sticky notes in the front so I always have somewhere to quickly jot down things before they are written in my planner. I’m not going to lie and say that my pockets look like this all the time, they don’t. When I am taking my planner with me, which isn’t very often, the cute clips stay at home.
Next is my monthly section, this is a sneak peak at May’s layout which is not finished yet. I use the inserts that came with this planner, bacause it seemed like a waste not to. The paper is really thin, but the pen I use doesn’t bleed or shadow, so they are perfect.
My weekly inserts are from Webster Pages, I started my personal size journey with a color crush planner, and I adore the inserts, the paper quality is fab, and I love the layout of them.
Next up is my to do section, again, the Kikkik planner came with an abudance of to-do and meeting notes paper. It seemed silly to me not to use it, after all, this is where I brain dump, and write general appointments/things to remember before I transfer the information to my weekly and monthly sections. I also made this folder to store stickers and receipts.
On all my dividers, I have sticky notes, they are laminated so its the perfect place to keep them, because who doesnt have plenty of cute sticky notes. I use them to pre-plan my week by writing appointments, birthdays etc, before my planning process starts.
Completely random, but I have cut down a few sheets of thick pink paper. I was going to try a weekly layout on these but haven’t gotten around to it yet. If you have any ideas on what to do with these, please leave a comment below.
My list section speaks for itself. This is where I keep my favourite Etsy shops, shopping lists, wish lists, happy mail etc. Again, I have used the Kikkik paper and added different types of washi to brighten it up a little.
In addition to the kikkik paper, I have also trimmed down a few of my favourite list pads. These are always the pefect width for a personal size planner, all you have to do is trim a small section off the bottom.
My final section is where I keep information about my kids. I have all the important contact information and holidays.
I have already planned for this week but my next post will be a plan with me. Make sure you subscribe so you don’t miss it! Thank you for stopping by.
