Another Year with The Happy Planner

Good morning and happy Friday! Last week we got the email from Lily Grace's preschool with her calendar for the year. I went to go add the dates to my calendar and realized "uh oh, my calendar ends in December 2021!" I needed a new calendar and because I am such a creature of habit, it had to be a Happy Planner. I attempted a non-Happy Planner at the beginning of this year, but it just didn't do it for me. I am a Happy Planner person through and through. I know I am not alone on this because so many of you have commented over the years that you are Happy Planner addicts too!

This is the one I went with:

Now, I'll link it on Amazon so you can see it better than my pics (linked here), but mine was 50% off at Michael's this week-- so check there first!

I got the large version this time around, which was probably a little overkill but I liked the cover more than the regular sized options at Michael's. I know they have several different layouts, and I prefer the vertical layout. If you have a Happy Planner, which layout do you prefer?

I also love their stickers. I wish I was artistic and could draw in my planners like Andrea does, this is from her blog:

I love how bright and cheery that looks, but I do not have one single ounce of that artistic ability.. so stickers are more my cup of tea! I used to get the seasonal pack but it looks like they don't do one seasonal pack anymore, they make you buy each season individually (at least that's what they had at Michael's). I do have the essential planning pack :

and the super mom pack:

The super mom pack sounded promising but is only so-so, to be honest I wouldn't recommend it.

My favorite part about the seasonal pack was all the holiday stickers, so I may have to swing by a different Michael's and see if they have the holiday pack on sale:

Luckily we have 4 different Michael's within 15 minutes of our house-- so I can check a few.

Anyway, now I feel prepped and ready heading into fall and the upcoming school year. That is always such a good feeling. Are you a planner person? Which type of planner do you use? If you are a Happy Planner person, which sticker packs do you get? 

Today I am linking up with Andrea and Erika for Friday Favorites. Have a a great weekend!


  1. I have a Happy Planner and I want to do more with stickers in it. I also want to get a new one for after mine ends!

  2. I’m trying the teacher happy planner for this school year. I can to wait to get it all organized:)
