My Summer Planner

Summer Planner


The weather is beautiful, the sun is shining, and the kids are finally out of school. Summertime schedules are usually less hectic but true planner addicts (like me) will still keep track of and use our planners on a daily basis. Seasonally, I like to spruce up my planner to make planning more fun. I’ll add a new dashboard, dividers, and even a new pen.

I have several planners that I switch out of every once in a while.  I just swap out the inserts into the new planner. Right now, I’m using my A6 Mulberry Agenda. Of all of the planners I own, Mulberrys quality and craftsmanship is the best (IMO). However, it’s hard to find inserts for the A6 size since they are European.

I was ecstatic when I found this watermelon planner kit from Craftin’ Chaos on Etsy. Deb makes the cutest custom paperclips and planner dividers. She will reopen her shop on Monday, so be sure to check her out. Her dividers are by far my favorite. They are well made and look fabulous. Deb is so talented and super sweet.

I use Franklin Covey compact size inserts in my Mulberry. I have to trim down the bottom a little and add 3 new holes to fit my planner but I don’t mind since I love Franklin Coveys inserts so much.

To keep track of my life, I created a simple printable kit made specifically for my A6 planner. My A6 printable kit includes: a monthly customizable checklist, bank balance sheet, online orders, taxes, college expenses, income, blog income, prescription tracker, doctor visits, medical expenses, gifts and passwords.  I created it to fit the width of my Franklin Covey compact inserts (just a tad wider than A6) so if you use the normal A6 size, you can decrease the percentage when you print.

Have a blessed day,

    I would love to see/know what you do with your inserts after the months have passed/already filled in? Do you save them in a file or throw them away? If you save them, would you share how you do that? 🙂

    I’ve just finished revamping my planner for the summer. Completely by accident, the tabs and dividers are reminiscent of the color scheme of my dream VDS. Helloooo summer.

    Who makes your handbag?

    I think I need a class in this. I love looking at your planner, but I feel like I wouldn’t “do it right”. I love the important part the planner plays in the old movie “Working Girl.”

  8. What a lovely summer planner, so colorfull!

    I love this post. I seriously have a planner addiction. I’m always looking for a better planner. Last December I bought three because I couldn’t decide. Thank you for your recommendations.

  10. Yes, the A6 size paper and accessories are hard to find. But, that watermelon planner kit IS adorable!! One of my many planners is a Filofax Malden and I LOVE its’ quality. I just can’t personalize it much unless I make the tabs, etc myself. 🙂

    Can you suggest a comparable alternative since the Mulberry planner is $425?
