Here at I Heart Planners, you’ll often hear us saying “planning is personal” – and I think that’s part of the beauty of it. There is no right or wrong way to do it, and you can completely make it your own. Let’s talk about some ways to customize your planner to make it even more you (and to help put an even bigger smile on your face every time you use your planner). Sound good? Let’s get started.
Oh, and you can watch my video all about how to customize your planner here:
This is my favorite way to customize – get a planner cover sheet that looks exactly like you. Right now through Thursday, May 17, everyone who joins the Sweet Life Society gets to request a cover that looks like them! You can choose your hairstyle, hair color, skin tone, shirt style, desk accessories, and more!
4) Use a Flexible Binding System (so you can add your own pages)
If you really want to make your planner your own, a flexible binding system is a must! If you get a planner with traditional binding (like spiral binding or Wire-O), then you really can’t move pages around, or add anything.When you use a flexible binding system like the discbound system, you can rearrange pages, remove them, or add your own!!! I love printing my own pages to add to my planner. I add meal planning pages, master lists, and notes pages right into my planner.If you don’t know how the discbound system works, watch the video below where I show you. It’s super easy and totally customizable!
One of my favorite ways to quickly customize my planner pages is to use editable files that allow me to change things. If you have used editable PDF downloads in the past, you probably know that you can’t truly edit to your heart’s content. Often you can simply fill them out but you can’t change, colors, fonts, and alter text & headings that are already there. However, with our monthly google sheets & excel packs in the Sweet Life Society that is no longer the case!! You can truly edit quickly and easily to your heart’s content. Here’s a very short video that shows you how you can do that.
I hope that helps you create a planner that is absolutely perfect for you!
