Life Goals! 5 Cute and Creative Planner Ideas You’ll Love

*Collaborative post.

Do you depend on planners to achieve your life goals? Add a splash of colour and creativity with these five fun planner ideas for your goal-oriented life.

When you have everything planned out well, everything runs like clockwork! Things would fall apart if you try to go against the plan. If this sounds like you, you might have a type-A personality. People with a type-A personality (who benefit the most from keeping a planner) are very organized and competitive.

In a ground breaking personality study done in 1976, of the 3154 people studied, a little more than 50% qualified as type-A personalities, so there’s a ton of type-As running around!

To help you spice up your personal planner, we have hunted for the cutest planner ideas to add function and flair to your favourite book. If you are looking for some awesome planner personalization inspiration, keep reading!

Stickers

One of the easiest things to add to a planner is a bunch of adorable little stickers. Put them on the front cover, back cover, all the pages, and anywhere else you can get them to stick!

The variety of stickers to choose from is mind-boggling. There are even stickers made for personal planners! Add little cake slice stickers to represent someone’s birthday or a stethoscope for an appointment with your doctor.

 

Customize a Bookmark

To make finding the current date a breeze, add a super cute bookmark that fits the exact size of your planner. You can use anything flat to make a bookmark too!

For instance, if you have a washi tape design that calls to you, stick a piece of the tape to a piece of white paper or cardstock then cut it out. Then stick it in your planner pages and trim to fit!

 

Custom Planner Pages

It’s hard to find a pre-printed planner that has all the elements you want in one book. A way to thwart this is to find a planner that needs a couple of tweaks. Add a page for notes if you need to or repurpose a superfluous section into something you will use more.

You can even start from scratch for custom planners that are everything you want and need in a planner without any of the extra stuff you don’t need!

 

Planner Ideas for Water Intake Tracking

Many of us have a hard time remembering to drink enough water. With a schedule that is hectic from sun up to sundown, who could blame you?

Try tracking your water intake in your planner (since you always have that in your bag). Add little water cups to each day and cross them out as you finish the cup of water. Now a quick glance can tell you how much water you have had and remind you to stay hydrated!

Free Summer Activities for Kids

School is shutting for summer in about 4 weeks, so it makes sense to have plans for the 6 weeks summer break. Money can be tight for many of us and let’s face, we all need free summer activities to keep the kids busy, regardless of how rich we may be. You can’t be on a beach or in a theme park every day for 6 weeks, so you have to think ahead of how to keep the little ones engaged.

I have lots planned for the summer holidays. As a work from home mum, working at home with the kids can be hard.  I will be planning lots of different activities and be fitting in work around our schedule, so everyone is happy.

Here are some free summer activities for kids we will be making the most of –

 

Go for walks

We love to go for walks. The kids enjoy being outdoors so we will be going for lots of long walks in our area.  There is something so refreshing about being outdoors especially when the weather is nice. It is a good way to get those steps in and stay fit. Plus, fresh air and sunshine does wonders for our state of mind so make the most of this free activity with the kids this summer.

Make the most of your garden space

Now I know I am so guilty of not making the most of our garden. We don’t use our garden as much as we should and that is going to change this summer. I am going to get fun stuff for the kids to play with and make the garden as child-friendly as possible. It is amazing how running around and playing can keep the kids so busy for hours.

Riding bicycles and scooters

We have spots in our estate where kids can ride their scooters and bicycles safely away from the road and cars. We are going to be visiting the spot quite regularly. I like being able to sit on a bench and watch the kids ride safely. It is another exciting activity for them to do outside the house, and it is free once you have the bike/scooter and safely accessories!

 

Visit your local playground

I will be visiting the local playground with the kids. Luckily for us, it is not far away from where we live, so we will be making the most of it. The kids enjoying playing on the slides, swings and the other rides. We can easily spend an hour there. A good spot to spend an afternoon.

Baking

For days when the weather is not playing nice, we will be baking indoors. The twins are very into baking now and are interested in the whole process. So, we will be doing a lot of baking this summer. It is a fun educative activity for the whole family.

 

Camping in the garden

Camping in the garden is on our list this summer. It is something we have never done but want to do, and I think the right time is the summer. We will be getting a tiny camping tent and all the necessary camping gear to make it as much fun as possible.

 

These are just some examples of free summer activities we will be doing this summer holiday. Of course, we will be doing other paid activities like soft play, theme park, visiting a farm, and the likes. But more of free activities, so a lot of thinking outside the box.

 

What plans do you have for the summer holiday? Please share them in the comments section below.

Thanks for reading.
