How to use a planner and stay organized

When you have so much things to do, places to go, people to see, a planner is a must.
And since 2016 it's almost over, we are all looking for a planner that can satisfy our 2017 needs. I am so lucky because I found 'Tropical Escape Planner' by Sweet plans that has everything that I need. Plus, they are made in Slovenia.
Honestly, I can't imagine my life without my little to-do lists, to-buy lists, little notes... Everything would probably be so chaotic. So, I am sharing 3 simple tricks that help me stay organized, for everyone that is starting with planning from January.

1. Choose a planner that you love
Choose a planner that matches your expectations and your style - size, shape, paper quality, color. You have to buy the planner that is perfect to you, so you'll actually use it.
I found mine, cute & functional, with fun colors, lots of space for notes, section for celebrations and super cute details throughout the whole planner.

 2. Personalize it 
Make it a place where you write everything. From daily tasks, appointments, events, class schedule, grades, bills, shopping lists, to ideas, dreams, movies to watch, books to read, habits, places to visit, or how you felt that day.
Write down your goals for the year, month, or even week. Stick some photos and add your favorite motivational quotes.

3. Decorate it
My guilty pleasure. I make my planner prettier with using washi tape, stickers, sticky notes and colorful pens. I just enjoy decorating and that makes me use the planner even more.
Let's get crazy with the Sweet plans sticker book, that has over 700 college, summer, christmas & birthday themed stickers, combined with fun words and cute illustrations.
