2. Planner Setup 2016-17
My "planner setup" post is always a fun one for me because to me, my planner is a craft- I put it together myself with lots of little DIY's and cheap hacks, and it's always fun to come up with new ways to make my planner both pretty and functional without buying more stuff ;) If you're looking for some simple and budget-friendly ways to get your planner set up for success, this is a great place to start.
3. Planner Supplies and Organization

I absolutely love this system (and the supplies I have!).
