I'm definetly a planner.  And to help keep me organized, I love my planner.  In fact, I would call myself a planner snob.  I'm embarrased to say how much money I've spent on planners.  And although I am very frugal, I will throw away a planner that I used only a couple of months into a year if it's not working for me.  After all, a missed deadline or appointment can cost me way more than a planner.

My planner is my guide.  It has everything in it from birthdays to Sunday sermon notes to projects I'm working on, orders I've placed,  and of course appointments.  Through the years I've tried dozens of different brands, and the one that I keep going back to is the Happy Planner, Create 365 by Me & My Big Ideas.  

The Happy Planner comes in 3 different sizes and is by far the most customizable.  I've had the mini, the Big and the Classic.  It also comes in many different themes.  Such as weight loss, financial, and faith.  Then you can add inserts for notes, folders, project goals, and more.

This year I decided to go with the new Homebody with Dashboard style weekly inserts.  I love it so much that I couldn't wait to get rid of my 2020 planner and start using it.

So..... another great feature of the 365 Collection is that they have a special hole punch that allows you to add whatever you want into your planner.  I whipped up a calendar in Canva for November and December 2020, and added it to the front of my 2021 Planner.  This also helps as we get closer to the new year, I can put in any new appointments, and not miss any like my January 4th doctor's appointment...  I can't be the only one that has missed something because I didn't flip the calendar????

Another great advantage of having the hole punch is that I can also add other things like bulletins, flyers, grocery list, the possibilities are endless. You can find the Happy Planners in many different places. But if you'd like to order online, I recommend HERE and if you order soon you can use the promo code EXTRA10 and receive an extra 10% off your whole order.  A Cherry On Top* is located in Saginaw, Michigan, so you can also pick up your order if you don't want to wait for it to be shipped.

I'm ready to start planning my new year, and making it the best year yet, aren't you?
