So I have a love of stickers, and organization, but like most girls, I hate carrying a planner around with me as much as I hate carrying a coat, so I'd rather freeze/forget things than be burdened with carrying something around with me at all times.
So i meshed the two, Yes, very important things I need to remember I set on my phone, but there is almost something theraputic about putting stickers on things in an organized fashion. I couldn't find these pre-made anywhere, so I made some, magnets are just as fun as stickers, and you can even write on these!!
Step 1: Acquire Stickers.
Either go to your local craft store and get very carried away with purchasing planner stickers, or just print out your own on regular paper, I got ones that say things like "pay day" "treat yo self'" (parks and rec, anyone?), "bills due", etc.
Step 2: Supplies
- You will need the following:
- A show to binge watch, but not one you have to pay too much attention too, or music
- Magnetic strips/sheets, preferably with adhesive on them (You do not need to know how they work, do not seek out a scientist to ask them.)
- Clear tape, or, if you are an over achiever, contact paper.
Step 3: Putting Your Stickers Onto the Magnets
- Peel sticker
- Apply directly to the forehea-magnet strip
- Cut Strip
Step 4: Redneck Rig Up a Laminate
so you can write on them with your dry erase markers! Whoo!
I just used packing tape and stuck the magnet onto it, then I cut the excess tape off. Now it is writeable!
Step 5: T-t-that's All, Folks!
You are finished! If you even wanted to go a step further, you could actually laminate some of the planner pages and make them into a giant planner magnet board, like a house keeping one, a chore one, etc. Or, like me, you can use your wall calendar and let your sad planner sit in the dust, abandoned, because it is too much of a burden to carry from one place to another.
