I’m so excited to be continuing with the next installment of the Planner Peek series! I don’t know about you, but I just LOVE being able to sneak a peek inside other people’s planners. I love to see how they use them, how they decorate them, what type of planner they use, etc. I have asked my readers to submit photos of their planners and to tell us a bit about how they use their planning system. (You can submit your planner by filling out this really short and easy form. If you’re selected, you’ll get a free copy of the digital Sweet Life Planner worth $35!)
Today's planner is from Kailee. She uses the Arc system by Staples (which also happens to be one of my favorites). If you're not familiar with how a discbound system like Arc works, take a look at my post and video about how they work. She decorated her cover with a beautiful monogram decal:
Here's what Kailee has to say about the first section of her planner: I am a college student and have a busy schedule between work, class, babysitting, and events with my sorority. I chose the Arc System by Staples in the junior size, but I needed to personalize my front to keep me excited about using my planner each time. My decal is a Lilly Pulitzer print vinyl decal that I purchased from A Girl and Her Dog. I needed something that was simple basic and allowed for me to track the important events in my day to day. I wanted to have a large space for each day so I could record as much detail as I needed. I currently have 12 months worth of Monthly layouts and the weekly set up as well to write more details. This is the first part of my planner.
Here's what she has to say about the next section of her planner: As I am about to enter into my senior year of college, I will be moving into my own place with a few friends. I will be student teaching my last semester of college and we are not allowed to work during these 4 months. So it is important that I am saving and watching my spending now, rather than stressing later. Since I am in the process of becoming more financially responsible for myself, I needed something to keep track of my progress, my spending and my responsibilities monthly. I created a few printables to track my paychecks and how I would divide my money between my checking, savings, church, and my apartment fund.
As well as my finance printables, I have a section for notes and for keeping family and babysitting contact information with me at all times. I started this due to the chance of my phone dying and me needing to have family or babysitting contacts information.
Here's what she has to say about her pens: Since my schedule can change from day to day, I wanted an erasable pen that came in a variety of colors. I chose the Pilot FriXion Erasable pens. You can purchase them here on Amazon: Pilot FriXion Clicker Retractable Erasable Gel Pens, Fine Point, Assorted Colors, 7 Pack (31472). These pens have great pigmentation and write fluidly without bleeding through the paper. One of the best things is that they erase completely when I need to change dates for events. Along with my erasable pens, I use a highlighter to highlight the event when it has been completed. This helps me with my assignments and to make sure I am moving through my day.
I’m definitely impressed with her beautiful planner. Here’s one more composite graphic if you want to pin it:
