I’ve always been a planner kind of gal. In high school, my planner was filled with notes of my day and homework as well my schedule. I was a busy kid – basketball, work, a boyfriend, friends.

So imagine my surprise when in my late 20s, I found planners to be a thing again. And what a thing they are!

My best friend introduced me to Erin Condren. She’s one of the biggest names in the planner life and offers wedding planners, teacher’s planners, address books, and 3 styles of her Life Planner (horizontal, hourly, vertical).

Personally, I’m an hourly kind of girl but I use it like a vertical (I need the lines or else my handwriting goes sideways) and while I’m trying to find my planner peace, I’d like to share how I’m using my planner.

Stickers (and washi) are some of the most popular ways to use/decorate a planner. While washi isn’t my thing, fun stickers are!

I recently found Korseh’s Kreations through a Facebook group giveaway. Her stickers are so much fun! They’re beautifully decorated, hold ink well (which is important on a planner), and fit my planning style so far!

As I use my planner for both work and home, I seperate my days. At the top of each day, I use a checklist box where I write down my daily meetings and any important notes for work. The boxes you see filling the rest of the day are for decorations or for important things with the kids such as school events, doctor’s appointments, where each kid is that day. I also make notes of our dinner plans at the bottom, which is our version of meal planning.

Weekends find my “To Do” and “Honey Do” boxes as well as weekend events for kids!

Hope you all enjoy checking out Stephanie at Korseh’s Kreations! Don’t forget to find her on Facebook 🙂

  1. I have to admit that I don’t have a planner yet but I really need to get one. Erin Condren planners I will have to check out and Korseh’s Kreations for the stickers. Thanks for sharing the information.

  2. I never really got into planners until I started blogging. I’m actually using one now – yippee! It sure does keep me organized.

  3. I’m definitely a planner girl! I am obsessed with washi tape and stickers and decorating my planner. A lot of my friends just use apps to organize their schedules but I’m an old fashion kind of girl. I prefer to write things down.

  4. I really want an Erin Condren planner, but I don’t know if its worth the price. I was into bullet journaling a couple years ago, but I haven’t kept it up because I keep forgetting.

  5. Even with technology, it’s still nice to use a planner to keep things organized. These one is really colorful and vibrant.

  6. That is an adorable planner. I have a planner…not using it! I seriously need to though. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I cannot live without a planner! With the job that I have I need to write down everything otherwise I will forget what is going to happen on that day. I love this planner.

  8. That. Is. AWESOME! I live by my planner. Without it, I’m not sure I’d ever get through the day. That looks great.

  9. We didn’t have planners when I went to school ages ago. I am big on the planner routine now. I like paper over devices.

  10. My daughter has an Erin Condren planner and is always on the lookout for new stickers to use in hers. These are super cute.

  11. I have a planner myself, but it’s just a plain one. No stickers :(. Lord, we are kids at heart aren’t we lol! I love having that visual stickers provide 🙂

  12. I love a good planner. I used the heck out of my agenda back in High School. Now that I am older I can’t seem to find a planner that fits all that I need it to do. Ill have to look into this one!

  13. Isaak likes washi tape. I haven’t gotten any, but he eyes it every time we go to a craft store.

  14. I am such a list person so my planner is a crucial part of my day. This is such a cute little book, mine is very plain.

  15. I always have my planner with me. I can’t live without it. That one looks really cute! I want one of those!

  16. I am so bad about using a planner. However if my planner was that cute and fun, I think I would actually use it.

  17. I finally got a planner from the dollar section at Target. It’s not the greatest but it’s doing the job so far. I like this one too!

  18. I am flat out addicted to planners. I have untouched planners that I’m keeping just so I can look at them. LOL I love these stickers!

  22. I haven’t kept a paper calendar in years but the one you’re using looks really fun and colorful.

  23. I already got a planner and I really should have. lol Your planner was too colorful and young and I bet teens will love to have this. It is more like a stylish diary planner and you can do a lot of things in it, even decorate it like a scrapbook.

  24. I love my planner. It helps me to keep track of expenses.

  25. I’ve started using a planner this year too to track my fitness stuff… brings me back to when I was a kid when I used to scribble and doodle lots haha..

    Sorry for being a month late but Happy New Year!!

  26. What a great looking planner!! I know my wife is obsessed with her planners and keeping everything written down!

  27. I need to get back on track with being more organized. This would be very useful for me. And it’s cute so that’s a plus!

  28. I ADORE my planner. As a special education teacher, I’m in and out of so many different classrooms. People tell me things I need to remember or I’ll see a teacher in the hallway who requests something from me so it’s in my hands at all times. It’s my to-do list and my thought catcher all in one!

  29. I swore this is the year I get organized and this might be just the ticket! So cute!!

  30. Love the look of this planner – and the stickers! Gotta make it appealing and fun, otherwise I will never-ever use it!

  31. That looks like a great planner. I really should start using one so I can stay better organized.

  32. I always love the idea and look of a fresh new planner, but I’ve never been a good planner type of girl. I know, it seems anti-blogger almost 😉 good luck with yours, it looks very pretty!

  33. I collect planners and notebooks but i rarely use it because of their cuteness. what a waste, right? Lol!

  34. I heart planners! I’m not as good as inputting information though since I seem to have so much more going on! Yours look great!

  35. I don’t have a planner yet. I really need to get one.. I have just been slacking and can’t decide on one

  36. I love my planner and agree that they are just so popular now. I belong to a few Facebook planner groups and get so much inspiration from there. I also love YouTube for planner ideas.

  37. I am obsessed with planners, they are so great to organize with! I love how fun and colorful yours is!

  38. I have always been such a planner too! I love decorating my notebooks and planners with doodles and little stickers. I need to get these in my life!

  39. What beautiful stickers – I love the way you set out your planner. I’ve just recently got into using a planner and I couldn’t be without it now!

  40. I love the look of your planner, it’s beautiful. I personally use a bullet journal, I like the freedom of it.

  41. That design is beautiful. I have never seen a planner like that, I would love to have one.

  42. I’m not sure what I’d do without mine! Though I’m using a Simplified Planner this year but really want to check out the Erin Condren planners at some point, too! Thanks for sharing–love those stickers 🙂

  43. I am obsessed with planners!! With three kids and a business I have to be organized, I love the lay out of this one!

  44. Way to stay organized! I have friends that swear by Erin Condren planners, I will have to get one next year!

  45. I already have a planner but I really want to get a separate one for blogging. I’d love to add some stickers to it too. I have a pretty big sticker collection already but nowhere to stick them haha x

  46. I love the versatility of Erin Condren planners, but haven’t tried one yet myself. I hate being locked into a certain thing, so I tend to make and create my own planners – that way I can change them easily without feeling like I’m “doing it wrong” or that I’ve wasted money by buying a planner that has whole sections I know I won’t use. Bullet journaling has been a great thing for me personally.

  47. Oh, they look so pretty! I’ll have to check out Erin Condren’s planners – thanks for posting this.

  48. These are so so cute. I started bullet journaling about a year ago and my planner and journal are my life. I don’t use Erin Condren I have found a much cheaper and honestly better alternative but I don’t want to promote a business on your comments. However, I love these stickers. SO SO cute and easy. Thanks for sharing.

  49. I have a few friends that are into fun planners like these. I am not sure that I would have the time to keep one updated, but the bright colorful stickers are definitely my style.

  50. Hey Shaun! Your son shares my birthday!! I am a big planner as well. I love fun planners like these. It makes it even more fun to be organized!

  51. Such a cute planner. I’d love to use one, but the columns are so tiny. I write too big and have way more to do in a day. Love an online version with all of the pretties on it!

  52. I love planners too!! I’m not into Erin’s planners, but they are pretty awesome. I use one, broken down daily with lot’s of lines for the day. I mark it off as I go, it makes me feel so accomplished!

  53. I’m definitely a planner person too! I like the idea of decorating and organizing with stickers! I use my planner a ton so they would add a nice touch.

  54. I used to love Erin Condren so much I had 4 planners, but then I stopped using them for some unknown reason. It makes me sad. Love this I think I will order a new one!

  55. I am not a good planner… I think i need to start using a planner. A great way to track my goals.

  56. I love to stay organized and a planner is wonderful to help that goal. I don’t know what I would be without one.

  57. Oh I’ve had ink rub off of the past 2 sets of planner stickers I’ve bought (and they were FOR planners!) so I’m excited to check out the Korseh brand.

  58. I have Lisa Frank to thank for my planner obsession! Love this grown-up way to still get my planner fix. So cute!

  60. Cool! It looks so cute! I definitely need to decorate my planner now!

  61. I love planners as well, they’re a weakness that I can’t really beat. This one’s nice, I love the stickers! It’s awesome that there are so many things that you can add to personalize your planner more.

  62. I totally need to get into this whole planner thing. I can barely stick to a workout schedule though without feeling guilty if I miss a day so I don’t know how I’d feel if I didn’t complete what I’d planned for every day!

  63. I make sure that I jot every plan and idea and schedule that I have in my planner, it keeps my life organized and I love adding memories too! I think this is a lovely planner and the stickers are so adorable!

  64. Your planner is so cute! I love writing on my planner and list all my goals for the week. I think I’ll be more inspired if I have these cute planners!

  65. I love my planner! I personalize mine with stickers and pictures I cut out of magazines! Like a goal board. But on the blank pages of my planner. It helps me focus on my goals every month!

  66. When I was in college, I lived by my planner. Now as an adult I love them again too!!

  67. I love the stickers!!!! I didn’t buy a planner this year I am trying to do less paper because living full time in our RV has made me notice how much paper I throw away on a daily basis! LOL but I will keep this planner in mind jic I find myself needing one again <3 ty for sharing!

  68. I love how you decorated your planner spread! Stickers definitely add a lot to planners : )

  69. This is so cute! I am addicted to my planner and slowly starting to decorate it and make it look all pretty. I would be lost without my planner!

  70. Oh this is too cute. I love planners but this one is so awesome! Thanks for sharing.

  71. I know stickers and planners are all the rage right now. I’m trying to get my life back on track w/ keeping my planner handy so I can document my to-dos.

  72. I have a weird fascination with planners. Seriously, I have more planners than I do plans! I find the most random purposes for them (like tracking what TV shows I want to watch, lol). This one is really cute and fun!

  73. Your journal is SO CUTE! I wish mine was this cute haha! Mine’s all scribbles and things crossed out and I’m one of those that carries on writing off the pages across the margins and all. It’s so so messy. Sigh x

  74. Im a big planner girl now too! I am going to go all out in Feb since its my birthday month and so many cute Valentine themed items too!

  75. That planner is super cute! And it reminds me that I need to go get my new one out of the wrapping! EEEK!

  76. I am an organization research junkie. You’ve totally inspired me to go on a new planner search! Love the colors in yours!

  77. I can’t leave without my planner. I like to decorate it with stickers too. The stickers looks cute. I’m heading over to check it out. Thanks for sharing!

  78. As a military wife who could barely handle her busy schedule I am truly glad I came across your post. Even when I was a kid, I love collecting stationary and planner like this! I always jot down important notes or dates so I won’t forget. Helps me with organizing my schedule too!

  79. I love paper planners, too! Very much prefer them to digital ones. Same way I’d generally prefer a book to a kindle 🙂

  80. I have never thought to use stickers with my planner. I think it would be a great way to keep motivated and encouraged.

  81. What a cute planner!!!! I’m
    Obsessed with mine!! I don’t know what I would do without it!

  82. I received my first Erin Condren planner for Hanukkah this year. I love the smaller size, but sometimes feel like I don’t have enough room to write everything. It is such a handy tool and really does help me keep track of what needs to be done when.

  83. I used to have one but it never looked so pretty as the one’s I see now. and I just end up scribbling here and there and then I cannot even read my own scribble. I WANT to be a planner girl because they are so pretty now and so much better, but I just know in 2 weeks I will start forgetting to use it and once again have scribbles on paper all over the house. Like I am in my 40s, when will I adult?

  84. Once a planner gal, always a planner gal! Me too. Love this thank you!

  85. Oh your worksheet is so cute! Have you tried bullet journal?

  86. These planners are cute and I love that they are of full size.

  87. Planners make me go crazy as well! It’s a great way to organize your daily life as well as document what’s going on! It’s always more fun when you add stickers and colored pens!

  88. I use the calendar on my phone, by my hardcover planner is my base. It’s the main one that I use for everything. I never leave home without it.

  89. I haven’t gotten into using a paper planner yet but there are so many cute things out there now for them. I will have to look into her.

  90. I love planners with a passion! My first paper planner was an Erin Condren. It’s a great planner.
