I know, that I know, that I know, that I know...I'm a functional planner. I don't have the inclination to spend hours creating beautiful, color-coded spreads, and I get a little anxious thinking that I need to buy all the pens and all the stickers. However, I do love looking at these spreads and when I do, I start thinking, "maybe..."
I finally figured out what that is all about. I like to doodle and I like to write. I like to use a perfect sticker for whatever the occasion is, but I quickly get tired of doing the same thing for very long. I believe that is why I am always trying out different inserts, and why I like switching out my planner covers - I need a little change in my life.
I bought a Stalogy bullet journal last spring to help accommodate this change. My planning system is firmly housed in my rings, but when I'm feeling the need to be creative, I pull out the journal and do my daily planning there. I refer to my weekly page to create the daily pages and keep the binder close in case I need to access any other information. After a few days, I'm usually planing in my rings again.
Here are a few of my favorite spreads:
