planning with paper issues...

Today the Paper Issues blog has a post that makes me heart beat faster...a Planner Spotlight! I'm sharing my Plum Paper planner pages for this week and there is plenty of other inspiration as well. Hop on over to check it out!

The weekly spread here is how my week takes shape. During the weekend, I add my thin washi lines and write in events and to-do items that are unlikely to change. Things that are not set in stone get added on a post it note and then written in pen once I know (more or less) for sure they will happen.

This week I decided to work with aqua, yellow and bright green for my main colors. I marked off my sections as such:
  1. Top: daily schedule, events, school/work, play dates, etc.
  2. Middle (under the yellow line): daily tasks
  3. Third (under striped washi): dinner plans
  4. Bottom: FitBit step count, Listers Gotta List daily prompt
My left side bar checklist is for tasks that need to be accomplished but, not necessarily on a specific day of the week.

Decorating with themes/fun stickers comes in after I have a basic plan for the week outlined and I prefer my decor to be minimal. Keeping it simple allows me to see what is happening or what needs to be done with just a quick scan. Pretty is nice but, this is a working planner!

Most of my stickers this week came from the Paper Issues shop and include: Crate Paper Poolside, Simple Stories Summer Vibes and Life Documented, Me and My Big Idea Happy Planner and bits from the Swag Bags. Need a supply stock up? Take 20% off any order in the Paper Issues shop with code: JENBOOM

Thanks for planning along with me this week!

Love seeing your work! Can you share where you found the post-it notes? Are they from Paper Issues or an office supply store? I have been searching for something similar to use for planning my Project Life pages.

Thank you Jac!
The post-it notes here were a Target One Spot find sometime last year. Now that I'm using them, I wish I'd grabbed several packs!
