What comes to mind when someone says they use a planner or that they plan to buy one?
Many people think that a planner is just a notebook with grids and, well, you lay out your plans for the week/month. Add some doodles if you want and you're done! I didn't really give it much thought either. I started using planners when I was in high school but never took them seriously until college. I just kept a small pocket planner to balance studies, parties, and movie nights. Oh yeah, it was though lol
As an adult, I've always had yearly planners. It didn't mean I was updating them religiously. Back in the Philippines, I made sure I had the annual Starbucks planner - which apparently they do not offer here in the US. Back home (and I don't know if they still do it now), you buy so much drinks and have your punch card filled up and voila! Starbucks Limited Edition Planner.
It's a whole new world!
I got a 2020 planner as a gift last Christmas and I've loved it so far. I was able to maintain it, but nothing fancy. Last week, I was buying some fabric in Joann's but of course, your store visit is not complete until you go to the clearance aisle. I was initially looking for stickers then I stumbled upon this 18th month planner. Looks neat. Not my style but hey it's on sale for $11 so maybe I'll go ahead and take it.
The Happy Planner.
That discovery led me to the paper crafts aisle and of course, I found the rest of the Happy Planners not on clearance but was on sale. Well, I found one that represents ME! I'm no longer that "girlfriends date night" kind of gal, which is what the clearance item was - things have changed and I'm more of let's work, travel, eat, and walk my dog with my husband person now. Amid all that - I'm a child at heart, not some sassy chic (although I know I can be).
Hey, it's me!
I've always loved to write. Not saying I'm good at it, but hey this is the story of my life!
