The Happy Planner ♥ First Impression

The Happy Planner First Impressions
In the beginning of the month I went out and bought a new planner for the new year. There are various types of planners out there but I choose The Happy Planner because it's similar to the Erin Condren but much more affordable. I've been using the Happy Planner for a few weeks now so I thought it would be appropriate to share my first impressions on this planner. Let me know if you would like to see a full review and planner spreads in the future!

I originally bought the gold polka dot planner but I bought the set of planner covers and changed my cover to this floral wooden cover. What I love about the Happy Planner is that you can personalize it however you want! They sell many accessories online and in stores such as calendar extensions, pocket folders, planner covers, etc.

Before you flip to the monthly calendar you have this sheet where you can jot down special events, birthdays, important dates and other goals.

Another thing I love about this planner is that it doesn't waste paper. It only has one sheet of paper as part of the notes section, for the whole planner! I never use the notes section so I'm perfectly fine with this instead of having a planner with tons of blank sheets.

Speaking of paper, let's talk about the paper in this planner! The paper in the planner is thicker then your average planner paper. Because of the thick paper it doesn't rip easily and most inky pens don't bleed through to the other side!

This is what the center disks look like. They're hearts, isn't that cute! You can buy different colors and different sizes too! You can easily pull out sheets of paper through these disks without ruining the pieces of paper.

  2. Thanks for sharing your current planner! I love planners and am always curious how other people stay organized. This one looks really cute. I'd be really keen to see how you keep up with your planner (and I can't figure out what those disks are for--are they bookmarks?)!

    1. I'm still trying to set up a weekly spread that I'm pleased with. But once I do I will post pictures of them!

      Those disks are the rings in the center of the planner that keep everything intact (I currently have the gold ones on my planner). You can buy different colors and changed them out. I bought the black ones because I found them on sale. I wanted to show you a close up of what the disks look like when they're not attached. Since the paper in The Happy Planner is thicker and the holes have slits so you can easily attach the paper to the disks and changed them out as you please. I love this concept which is one of the reasons why I decided to purchase this planner. <3

    2. Ohh I think I see...they help you swap out or keep pages in place? Interesting. I'm such a klutz I'm sure I would drop the pages everywhere anyway lol.

      And please do! I'm looking forward to it!
