Planner Time

I've always been a big fan of using a planner to jot down notes and events. In high school and college, I used a planner for everything from keeping track of tests, my work schedule and special occasions, but I never considered the planner a 'fun' thing. It was strictly to stay organized. That mentality changed a few months back.
Before I started my job, I knew I wanted to purchase a planner to use for work and my personal life. I searched for some time before I stumbled on the Ban.do agenda at Barnes & Noble. As soon as I opened it and saw the adorable drawings, I knew I had found the perfect planning partner.
Shortly after purchasing my Ban.do journal, I became more intrigued by how people used and decorated their planners. I have been a long time YouTube follower of Elle Fowler, aka AllThatGlitters21. Anyone who followers Elle knows she is an agenda junkie. She was sharing who she  utilizes and decorates her agenda, and I just had to get my hands on some adorable stickers.
Fun fact: When I was about 12, I created a Lisa Frank Sticker Club in my neighborhood. Every week my friends and I would meet under the willow tree in my front yard to show off our newest stickers and make very calculated trades. My love of stickers started from a very young age.
Over the past two months, I have ordered my fair share of planner stickers and have really enjoyed planning out my week and giving my agenda a weekly makeover. I worked on next week's spread last night and it was very soothing. Organization and planning is therapeutic for me.
Here's a look at this week's layout and my small but growing sticker collection:








My sticker collection is made mostly of stickers I use daily or weekly, aside from the macaroon stickers which were too cute to pass up. I love the Hydrate stickers to help me drink 8 glasses of water a day and the to-do flags. Here are links to my favorite Etsy shops for finding planner stickers;
