Planner Peace…

I honestly haven’t decided if there is or not, but I am having fun figuring it out and my planner has really helped me out tremendously. I wanted to do a whole post on this because I did abandon my Heidi Swapp. It’s not that I didn’t like it, I just wanted to try something new.

First, I bought a Big Happy Planner. I was going to buy a Teacher Happy Planner but found the regular planner at a really great price and decided I could modify it to meet my teacher needs and so far it’s been great! I am simply using thin pastel washi tape to split the 3 daily sections in to 6 and I added an information section to the front with class lists, meeting notes, parent contact, etc. I haven’t taken any photos recently, but here is one when I was playing with sectioning it off before school started:

It’s really working out well and I am really loving it. Then I started thinking that maybe I needed the smaller one for my home stuff. Again, trying to justify spending the money. And then I realized that I already have some fantastic calendar pages and inserts in Just Jaimee’s Story Planner Kits!! So, I went on a mission to make my own version of the happy planner! I found some great covers and inserts at Planner Addiction, ordered some discs, and a punch, and got to work.

This is the cover:

The full year calendar is a freebie from the MAMBI site and is the inside cover.img_1847

 

The tabs aren’t exactly what I want, but I hope to update them when I have time. This divider is from Just Jaimee’s Story Planner September Kitimg_1848

 

The monthly and weekly calendars are from Just Jaimee’s Story Planner A5 System and these pages are decorated with the September Kit.img_1849img_1850img_1851

 

I added a Grocery List and Menu Planner insert each week and they are both from Jaimee’s A5 Systemimg_1852img_1853

 

I’m also adding a journal card to each week to note any memories that I might not have room for on the pages. Not pictured is the photo pocket, so that I can add a couple of photos for each week. img_1854img_1855

 

I am really loving it so far and printed enough weekly pages to get me through December or January. I’ll try to get some more photos this week of how I have updated things. Happy Planning!! Peace, out…

Quick Planner Update…

Too busy planning to be sharing ha!! I am loving my planner so much. I actually took it to work one day last week to get some photos in better lighting, and left it there. I was lost when I got home! I’ve been updating the gallery, but haven’t come to share on the blog.

This is the end of February and the first week in March, which is still a work in progress. I need to print a couple of journal cards to pop in there, and at the end of the week, I’ll add a couple of photos for the week.

I am still playing around with the format I’m using to see what I like the best, and I may just change it up every month. I really look forward to the weekend so that I have time to work on the next week!! I’m off to fill in some things for the next couple of days and then off to bed. I’m hoping to catch up on PL tomorrow and be back to share those pages. Over the hump and downhill from here. Peace, out…
