Happy Planner box kit (Summer 2016) review

July 18

Hey everyone, I just got my hands on one of the new planner box kits by Me and My Big Ideas, the creators of the Happy Planner.  This summer they released several kits for teachers, students, fitness lovers, and everyone else. The student planner kits are dated, however the rest are undated which means they can be used right away or stored for future use.  Perfect for gifting! These kits are currently available at Michael’s stores and the mambi shop.  They retail for $34.99


The planner I chose is titled “Best Year Ever” and includes monthly and weekly spreads for twelve months.  It also includes stickers for date labels as well as month labels.  An added bonus are decorative and motivational stickers, sticky notes, and magnetic bookmarks.



The monthly layout for this planner is fairly simple, each month has a color and so the weekends in the monthly view and the sections in the weekly view with both carry through this color.  The color of the month can also be found in little embellishments throughout the month as well as the divider.





One of the things I love about this planner is the “Currently page” This is the page at the beginning of the month where you can document current events, favorites, goals, birthdays, and other important notes.  This is a great page to work on as you start to form your month, as well as one to look at at the end of the month to see how you have progressed.




Oh, and this title page is just adorable, isn’t it?

  1. I have the Chevron Student Edition of the Happy Planner and I love it! I wanted to start using mine right away so I decided to purchase a six month extender also and used one month for July 2016 and plan to use the others for August 2017 through December 2016. It’ll work out perfectly! 🙂

    I bought this exact kit and can’t wait to use it. I’m thinking of using it as my gratitude journal. The only thing I don’t love is the “Best Year Ever” phrase on the cover, but that was easily remedied by flipping the cover and making the inside the new outside.
