How To Organize And Decorate Your Planner

Organizing and decorating a planner can be one of my favorite things to do. Organizing by color, name, and event, can be really satisfying to do but also the relief you feel after is a godsend. Having an organized planner can leave you feeling like you have a much more organized and beautiful mind. From grocery lists to your daily goals we’re here to tell you how you can organize and decorate your planner to your heart’s content.

1. Choose a planner that fits your needs

Ohh Deer Marble Planner available here.

Start with a blank page, or choose a planner that has sections clearly marked for you. There are hundreds of variations, from daily planners to weekly, monthly and yearly options. So it depends just how creative you want to get!

2. Color code

Use color coding to help you organize your daily and monthly schedules. But also the use of the color will help to decorate and make your planner look pretty.  Try using softer highlighters in pastel tones to make your planner less offensive than the typical neon yellows. You can also use different color page flags which direct you to certain key points and emphasize the need of certain topics. Color coding can help to organize conflicting work and leisure activities, making your planner much more visually effective.

3.  Motivational stickers

Girl Gang Stickers available here.

Grab some stickers to help motivate you to stay on task. If you are having a bad day or you are suddenly hit with the urge to procrastinate. You can look down and stay motivated to stay on task. This can also help to emphasize certain bullet points and draw your attention to upcoming birthdays in your calendar!

4. Accessorize

To make sure you are on track in your planner, use helpful accessories such as clip on’s and bookmarks. You can get some really beautiful accessories for your planner. Beautiful bookmarks will help you to instantly flick to just the right page. Printed tapes to help border all your points.

5. Use printable inserts

Crossbow Printables Planner Inserts available here.

Go online and find some really cute small inserts to print off, or purchase some with the ring holes punched already. You can add them in per week, day or month in your planner, depending on what you want to write on them. I use my inserts to keep track of my weekly groceries. I write down everything I need, from hummus to carrots and have the list always at hand in my planner. However, you can use these inserts to make note of daily goals, calls to make, priority lists or simply to divide your planner up.
