Planning is essential for staying on track with plans and goals for the day, week, month, year etc. It’s not always easy to figure a system of what works for you and let me tell you it’s taking me a few trial and errors. After trying a few planners my heart has set with Me and My Big Ideas Happy Planner.
What I was looking for in a planner was a good amount of space to write (I am not naturally a small writer), easy to read, space to allow for some decorating, flexibility and inspirational.
Those were all the qualities I have found in Me and My Big Ideas Happy Planner. This will mark my second year of rocking this planner for my planning needs as well as goal setting.
I was super happy that this year I was able to pick up the peony styled cover as that is one of my favorite flowers. The bright colors of pink and flowers showcased throughout the planner was a must for me.
Let’s chat about some of the features of this planner.

Sold: Online, Michaels, Hobby Lobby plus other online retailers
Those are just some of the features of these planners I definitely recommend checking out the website to see what would fit your preference.
The layout of my planner is vertical and it allows for me to plan throughout the day with options for creativity. There is a monthly overview and also a weekly spread that starts Monday through Sunday. When I am planning I pop the pages in and out so that my writing is not interrupted by the discs’. The pages easily pop in and out and so far I haven’t damaged a page yet.
The part that I enjoy the most about this planner is the ability to easily write and decorate my spreads based on what I would like to be inspired by.
Me and Big Ideas has provided a ton of tools to help you decorate, based on your preferences and they are constantly adding new tools and accessories. You can not help but inspired to plan.
I definitely think this is one of the best planners that is not hugely expensive and is easily accessible. I purchased mines at Hobby Lobby with a savings coupon and so I was able to get it at a discount (which I highly recommend especially if you are going to Michaels which has coupons all the time).
