I have been a planner girl since I was old enough to hold a pen, I can remember making very important plans in elementary and middle school. You know things like “write in diary” and “watch Beauty and the Beast.” To be fair I think I’ve planned both of those activities in the last year!
Either way you get what I mean!

When I went to college I used the same pink leather planner for four years: color coding each subject with my fancy gel pens but only using the occasional sticker. Planner stickers just weren’t available then like they are now! Of course, when I saw my first Happy Planner on YouTube I immediately knew this was it. This was what I was waiting for!
It was love at first sight and even though everyone told me I’d never stick with it I knew I was a planner girl through and through. I’d been planning for years after all! I went out the next day and bought both of the Happy Planners I use today.
I bought my first Happy Planner last December (yes it’s the one I currently use) and have been faithfully planning every week. It makes life soooo much easier to have a dedicated planning system that works for me.
I currently have two Happy Planners: one for home and the blog and another for 9-5 at the paint store. Of course, with all my Instagram shots I eventually started getting requests for plan with me videos and how to’s on planning.
I have made a few posts about using my wedding binder but this will be my very first plan with me in my actual Happy Planner! So now the chitter chatter is over and we’ll move on to the actual plan with me part of today’s episode! My little plan with me July 31 – August 6!
I plan each and every week… mainly with stickers from my MAMBI Sticker Books! I love etsy stickers but they’re so expensive compared to the sticker books that I rarely get them. A Sticker Book like this color story book has 725 pieces and you can use coupons on it to make it even cheaper! I think I have three of them now from last year’s sale… they were only $8 a piece at the time.
As far as Etsy Stickers go I do have a couple that I’ve picked up… I mean I needed rose gold icons y’all! Mainly for specific things like grocery shopping, feeding the animals, taking pictures etc. The poop emoji was from a mystery pack I grabbed for $5! I had no idea where to use it so I’ve been holding onto it for months.
My stupid toilet overflowing was the perfect excuse to use it!
