Make Your Favorite Planner Work for You…

So, you bought a new planner. Again.

Congratulations. There is just something about the promise of all those wonderful plans, sticker layouts, and fun pens.

It doesn’t take long and something just doesn’t feel right.

Your interest lagging. The frustration of not knowing how to make your life fit into the pre-printed pages of that cute book.

You are not alone.

Want to know a little secret?

The majority of successful planners have found a way to alter their planner. They move things around, use only the pages they love, and they make their planner pages fit THEM. Not the other way around…

(Not even kidding…I just saw an IG post of a planner who buys 4 (FOUR) planners and mixes and matches them all to make her ultimate planner for the year.)

Why use planner printables

I am in love with the Happy Planner system. That doesn’t mean I don’t need extra planner inserts now and then to put in my planner (that’s why the disc bound system is so great…you can customize it).

As a new planner, I had no idea that there are ways to make your planner work even better.

Ask me how long I struggled to fit my plans into a vertical plan layout before I found the dashboard layout.

This kit includes printable planner pages in different formats, trackers, and resizing tips. As well as a mini-guide that shows you how to be more successful at using a planner.

Bullet journal layouts and planner spreads can be GORGEOUS.

But what if you are not artistic?

Or you just don’t have the time to set up that fun habit tracker the way you like?

Print a few pre-made pages that you can quickly add stickers to. And write in your plans.

Cute and colorful plans. Even when you are pressed for time.

Find planner peace by customizing your current planner with pages that you can print when you need them.

You might not always need a custom planner layout. When you do…you will have a complete planner companion at your fingertips.

Use Your Current Happy planner…Frankenplanner Style

Having a disc bound system (or ring binder) means more flexibility. You can make or buy your weekly and monthly spreads. Add habit trackers and collections that you have downloaded or draw out your own. It is okay to blend it all together.

Sometimes, as a Happy planner, you want to try using a bullet journal spread.

Using a bullet journal is fun when you want to be creative and doodle a little more on your planning pages.

This planner companion makes your disc-bound planner system more of a DIY planner. Frankenplan your weeks by printing different pages. Challenge yourself to try different spreads and styles.

Removable pages, calendars so you can see your schedule at a glance, and a better way to organize your thoughts will make you a more successful planner.

You can still use task and note bullets or habit trackers in a planner. Create collections and divide them with tabbed dividers. Daily to do lists and shopping lists can be moved as needed. Laminate the pages that you can reuse or that you want to set up as a “key” or “index”.

Why would I buy a planner templates when there are so many online for free?

There are a TON of free planners available online. I’ve even downloaded my fair share. What I have found is that because they are free, I forget about them. Download them and then POOF they vanish into the nether regions of my device. The other issue with free templates is they are usually not cohesive. One page has bright fun colors. Another is muted or has a funky font that just doesn’t fit my style. This set of planner templates is designed with a similar style (that you can totally customize with stickers) and cohesive fonts.


I’ve tried to use a planner and I just don’t think they are for me…

You and me both. It took me a loooong time to figure out that it wasn’t my ability to plan that was an issue. It was my planner and the constraints of all those little boxes. You can totally be a “planner person”. It is just a matter of finding the right style and templates for you.


What if I don’t even know where to start with a planner?

That’s why I’m here. To help you get started on redefining the nature of your relationship with your planner. We take it back to basics and discuss what sections are best in your planner, what steps you should start with when using your planner, and how to build your planning into a habit you can continue. You’re going to fall in love with your planner.


Don’t I need to already have a planner?

Nope. You can be a brand spankin’ new planner wannabe. Or you can be a planner collector. This system is set up so you can start where you are (or where you left off) and just get going. Turn a new page and start planning.


Couldn’t you just print one or two templates off Etsy?

Etsy has some AMAZING templates. Not gonna lie. 

The problem with just printing one or two that you buy there is that you don’t get the cohesive planner experience. You get a few pages that get you started but then you are left wondering why your planner is collecting dust again. This DIY Planner kit isn’t just about printing out templates. We can print all the free templates we ever wanted. This system is about breaking down your planning mindset and starting fresh. Challenging yourself to set up a planner you love and then using it. Consistently.


How much time do I need to invest? 

The most time you will spend on your planner is setting it up. There will be an hour of two for printing, hole punching, and organizing the pages. Once you get this done then it is just a matter of planning your schedule and writing up your to-do list for each day. If you want to spend between 30-60 minutes each week decorating your planner, that is entirely up to you and your planning process. Most of us love to use our planner for some creative play time too. There are even coloring pages and mandalas in some people’s planners.


What do I get again? 

You get over 50 printable templates to pick and choose from (you don’t want or need to print them all). Monthly dividers, habit trackers, goal setting pages, and budget planners. You also get guides and how-to instructions that cover resizing your template printables, the best supplies for beginning planners, the difference in planner sizes, how to goal plan, and how to productively use your planner.


How do I get my stuff again?  Do I get anything in the mail?

The DIY Planner Kit is a digital download. Once you hit that buy button you’ll be taken to a link to download your kit. Nothing comes in the mail. No need to wait.


Can I get my money back?

Due to the digital nature of this planner kit, there are no refunds. Sorry.
