Whether you’re using your planner to express your creativity while keeping your family on track, multi-tasking to balance your personal and professional life, or manifesting your goals into actions, Avery planner supplies have you covered.
How to get started on your dream planner
Find your aesthetic. A personal planner should embody the phrase “form and function” because it’s a tool that we have to want to use in order for it to be successful. Take some time to browse organization ideas on Instagram and Pinterest. Take note of the colors and styles that make you feel good.
Choose a type of planner. A traditional planner provides structure based on monthly calendars. If you’ve been planning for a long time, this may be the style that’s most comfortable for you. If you’re just starting out, a traditional planner can give you a good personal organization road map to follow.
If you find there just isn’t enough room on a monthly planner calendar to create detailed to-do lists, a bullet journal may be a better planner style for you. Bullet journal planners are a more flexible type of personal planner that allow you to customize the way your tasks, projects and goals are laid out.
Or you might choose a hybrid version of a traditional planner and bullet journal, similar to the one Amy Tangerine features in her video about getting organized with Ultra Tabs®. You can also use a blank notebook as a free-form planner for organizing and recording your thoughts, feelings and tasks as they come up.
Organize your planner supplies. Keep the bulk of your planner supplies in a dedicated desk drawer, storage box or a beautiful decorative box meant to be displayed. Use pouches, pencil cases, and planner pockets to organize the supplies you use the most and need with you on the go.
Fill in basic planner details. Fill in recurring calendar dates and/or tasks like birth dates for friends and family, yearly checkups, holidays, etc. You can also use this time to decorate your planner cover and add seasonal planner stickers to specific months or projects.
Enjoy your planner and let it inspire you
Once you’ve gotten started with your planner (whether it’s just a new planner, or your very first planner) make it a priority to check in daily. Your personal planner helps you stay organized and get things done, but it also keeps you inspired and motivated.
You deserve a few minutes each day to check in with yourself. No matter how you use your planner to support your goals and dreams, with Avery planner supplies you can create a beautiful plan that’s uniquely you.
