Hi! I am honored to share some insight with you today.  A planner is the perfect addition to every female’s life even if she can be found at a local bar, watching Monday Night Football with her brothers.

But, planners are dumb, right? It’s just a glorified diary, isn’t it? Only girly girls keep a diary! As a girl who likes to live life on the fly, forgets everything including her own

As a girl who likes to live life on the fly, forgets everything including her own birthday, and barely has time to slide mules on her UN-manicured feet while flying out the door…how can a planner help her?

Why Every Tomboy Needs A Planner

1. Planners come in fun designs to fit HER personality.

First, let’s start with the fact that there are so many planners out there! There is bound to be one that will fit the Tomboy personality. No PINK  and FLOWERS here, please!  Thanks to the

Thanks to the ever-growing planner craze, planners are available in so many patterns, colors, sizes and shapes. One type of planner will surely appeal to our tree climbing hero. Even Wonder Woman wears lipstick!

If you do not like the covers on your planners, make one yourself and change it. Yes, you can do that!

There are not enough Tomboy and masculine-themed Planner stickers out there. To remedy that situation, you will find a free Tomboy Hero printable pack that includes a planner sticker set and a new cover.

Just print the covers, place them back to back, laminate, trim and punch for your specific planner. This free Tomboy Hero printable pack works for a variety of planner types and sizes. More information is included with the set for printing options.

2. You can deck your planner out with stickers!

Remember the days of decorating your locker, three ring binder, and textbooks? Decorating my planner takes me back to my middle school days. I put hundreds of stickers on the cover! I would then take a marker and trace around them several thousand times. Oh and doodling! The Tomboy can do all of that if she wishes! Nothing like stepping back in time to childhood and making the planner process fun and inviting to use. Go crazy let your inner Garbage Pail Kid out! There is no wrong or right way to decorate your planner. It’s not a diary per se-more like a detailed journey of your life or a time capsule, if you will.

3.  Secretly you have been dying to get control of your life.

One day, this Tomboy even beat up a male classmate who was picking on her brother. Though she became more “girly” in college, buying makeup, jewelry, and an occasional dress (where is that anyway?), she grew up and continually tried to put organizational practices in place to no avail.

That was until she came upon a planner that had places for notes, birthdays, a week view, a month view, and structure. It was editable, it was fun, and it was supported by a community of amazing and passionate people—where life could be shared one sticker at a time.

Set aside ten minutes a day to use your planner.  In a busy Tomboy’s life, this small amount of time will help you learn to organize a little bit better and a little bit smarter.

How do I know using a planner can help you if you are a Tomboy? Because I am a one and I can’t live without it! Try it!

Oh my gosh, who is ready for Fall to be here?

How I Used Fall Weekly Layout For Happy Planners

dsc_0315

 

I simply love the colors and patterns in this layout. They are just the perfect representation of Fall.

I normally  decorate my Happy Planner at least a couple weeks ahead of the week that we are on.  If I need to write down something that is coming up, I can write in there without having to erase it or cover it up with pretty printables. I was super excited that I could use this weekly layout for my first full week in October!

I loved how it turned out. I got a little creative and cut up some washi to make like a checklist sticker for my boxes.

This printable comes with the usual decorative boxes, half boxes, tags and hexagons. I added in some small boxes that are kind of like the header boxes but a little bit thicker, to add a little pretty to your boxes if you don’t want to use washi tape or you need a little something extra.

I love having my little Weekly Menu box over there in the notes section of the layout because then I can look ahead at what we’re having for supper this week and plan our meals around our events for that week.

Free Printable Special Dates Planner Insert

Get your free printable Special Dates planner insert! Perfect way to add a functional touch of adorable to your planners!

In my last post I shared the free printable academic calendar which seems to have been a big hit with you Squadettes. Today, I am sharing a free printable Special Dates insert to follow on with the functional planning theme.

Get these free Special Dates planner printables! Functional yet adorable!

Functional Planning…

Functional planning is my thing. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE all the fun stuff too but my planner HAS to be functional for it to work for me and that is why I am a “white space” planner girl. I do use the odd sticker here and there but I need white space in order for my planning system to work for me.

In the last few weeks, I have seen my planning system evolve. I think this is mainly due to the fact my son will be starting school in September and that I need to keep on top of other certain things in my life. I have always had a Special Dates calendar in my planner but I never really used it. It was one of those pages that I never had time to complete and so it has been blank for most of this year.

These Special Dates printables are free & a fantastic way to jazz up your planners.

Time to take note….

This week, my husband and I sat down together to do some finance planning. It wasn’t finance planning of the serious kind but planning for things such as holidays, projects around the house, Christmas and so on. At this point, it dawned on us just how many birthdays in the family we had missed. We have had a very busy year this year with getting used to being a parent of two babies, shift changes with my husbands work and the set up of my Etsy business. It was time to fill out the Special Dates insert to try and get to grips with all the important dates that we have to remember. Now that I have everything written in one place, I’m hoping I can get to grips with remembering things a little better.

Free Printable Special Dates Insert

Since I know that some religions and faiths don’t celebrate events, I thought it would be more ideal to have a Special Dates insert rather than a Celebrations Calendar. This makes the free printable Special Dates Insert accessible to everyone. As usual, I have included an A5 version and personal size version. Please check out a my recent post with printing tips if you are new to printables or if you need some help with the printing process. You can also tag me over in the Planner Squad Facebook group. 

Use these free Special Date planner printables for cute & functional ways to stay on top of special times.

I love seeing how the freebies are being used so feel free to share your photos in the group, spread some inspiration, and let me know how you are your free printable Special Dates insert.

FREE Daily & Weekly Planner Inserts For A5 & Personal Size Planners

Get your free daily & weekly planner inserts for A5 & personal planner sizes. Functional and cute, these inserts will help you stay organized while you rock your planners!

Time has flown by since I last blogged for the Planner Squad. I am back with more free printable planner inserts.

I don’t know about you but my planning system is constantly evolving with my ever changing needs to stay organized and on top of things. Last month I quit my corporate job to focus on my planning business, Little Chiqui Paperie, on a full time basis and since then things have been a little crazy.

Getting organized and staying on track with free planner inserts

The traditional week on two pages just isn’t cutting it anymore. Although I use my planner daily I am failing to plan every day which is leaving me feeling very unorganized. My weekly spread just doesn’t allow me to plan daily. I therefore need a daily planner to keep me functional.  I was inspired to design a daily/weekly planner to share with you all. I have to tell you-I LOVE the design and set up.

Get your free functional planner inserts for A5 & personal size planners.

The daily planner inserts

It has two days to a page in vertical format which means you can print a whole week to one sheet of A4/letter sized paper (when printed duplex). Each day allows you to track your important water intake, your top 3 goals for the day, your workouts and appointments. There is also a section for you to meal plan. Whats more, these free planner inserts are available in both A5 and personal size. The personal size is really tempting me to abandon my A5 Kikki K. I love just about anything in miniature set up and these pages are just so cute.

How will I be using my daily planner inserts with weekly set up?

I have designed a similar set up customized to my own needs and I plan to use them alongside my weekly spread. I need a weekly spread to see where I am at a glance. I mainly use my weekly spread to note appointments, errands, household chores and anything related to my husband, children and household. My daily pages will be used to note the things I NEED to do on any particular day and will most likely be work related.

Check out these free daily & weekly planner inserts for A5 & personal size planners. Functional & cute, these Planner Squad inserts will help you get & stay organized.
