It has been asked many times over in the planner community, “How do you use your monthly spread?” It seems the month-at-a-glance is often overlooked as we plan our weeks. As well, most stickers are made for the weekly layouts which often leaves us wondering how to decorate our monthly pages.
One way to ensure you don’t ignore your monthly view -jack it up! I admittedly didn’t use my Happy Planner monthly view mainly because after decorating my week(s), the monthly view was boring! Then, I found the monthly view sticker kits from Jump to It Designs Inc! I absolutely love their kits, themes and functional stickers. I’ve been shopping with Jump to It Designs Inc since June 2016 and not only do they have superb customer service, I have been happy with every.single.sticker I’ve purchased from them.
My first monthly view sticker kit was for September and since then I’ve actively used my monthly spreads (they are too beautiful not to use!). Shown below is the November (cornnucopia) kit. One of the features I really like about their monthly kits is the sidebar “notes” section. I use this area to jot down a few short-term monthly goals I’d like to accomplish.
Here are some of the ways I effectively use my monthly view:
- When bills are due (great for budgeting!)
- Pay dates (or work schedule)
- Family events
Shown above is another November monthly kit available at Jump to It Designs Inc. Although November is most recognized for the Thanksgiving holiday, this woodland scene is too adorable to ignore! The quality of the color and images is just amazing.
I invite you to check out Jump to It Designs Inc. I promise -you will not be disappointed with any purchase you make from them! The best part is you can now save 20% on your purchase using the code: BTD20!
Recently, Me and My Big Ideas (MAMBI) has introduced a mini planner. It’s all the rage right now as the perfect size to carry in your purse. In the next blog post, I’ll show you how you can use your existing stickers (and even ‘non-mini’ stickers) to decorate your Mini Happy Planner. Until then….

I was not compensated for this post, however I did receive planner stickers for my review. All opinions expressed are my own, based on my own experience having used these products and not influenced in any way.
