Hey y’all! Most of y’all know how I feel about life organization and planners. In the past I have used many different products (some homemade) and currently I’m back to bullet journaling for life things, and the Erin Condren Teacher Planner for work. With that, I was given The Happy Planner and thought I would review it if you’re interested. So yes, going into this you should know that it’s not what I would choose for myself but everyone has individual preferences!
The official Happy Planner website has them priced at $32. It is an 18 month planner from July 2019 to December 2020. The front and back cover are a sturdy laminated plastic type thing. All the weekly spreads are in the vertical format.
The Monthly Spread
Each month starts with a bullet journal like page with a grid space, the left hand side of the page has a calendar for the month, and a designated space for “Things To Do” list. The next page is a full look at the month with boxes that you can fill in. Again, on the left hand side you can fill in your “Top 3” things for the months and a small space for Notes.
The Weekly Spread
This part of the planner is where my desire to use this planner drops off, but its totally personal preference! The weekly spreads are in the vertical format. The days of the week are labeled on top and there are 3 rectangular boxes underneath each day with space for you to write. If you like writing things by time of day maybe you could use the 3 rectangles for Morning, Afternoon, and Evening? Just an idea!
The Happy Planner is a really cute, simple planner. It doesn’t include all the bells and whistles like some others do. There are no included stickers, only one notes page in the back, and no folders in the covers. If you aren’t looking for a lot of extra things, but what something cute, aesthetically pleasing, and in a vertical format, then this is for you!
