Planning Fun Stuff!

I recently started planning that I've been so excited to share what I have been working on. I've seen so many photos of people getting creative with their planners, that I thought I thought I should give it a shot. I have so many unused planners, card stock, wash tape, stickers, and ideas, that I needed to put it towards something and planning was the perfect answer. There are so many benefits of planning (the creativity is just an extra bonus). I always over look events and agree to several plans that clash with one another or do not stick to simple plans (workouts, book goals, good deeds, etc.)
Here's how I set up my planner:
+ I like to plan week by week instead of month by month. So every Wednesday I set aside an hour or so to plan for the upcoming week. 
+ Doodles and stickers give a fun look.
+ Add motivational quotes. Need some sunshine? Just open your planner...and look forward to your upcoming events!
+ Lots of color!! Markers, crayons, pens, you name it. 
+ Highlight your highlights. I love having days off and making it known, or pay day! 
+ I include my work schedule, important dates, holidays, and goals. Even if I already know I have to work, it still gives me an idea of how my day will look. 

My planner is from Target as well as the paper. However, the decorations are from various shops here and the doodles are from yours truly :)
I recently went to Target and saw that they are coming out with new patterns, so I'm perhaps going to purchase a separate one just for school.

Do you plan? Or know of any cute sites that sell planning kits. Feel free to comment any tips :)
