Do you pin bullet journals on Pinterest, watch sticker unboxing videos or watch other planners create new layouts on Youtube? If so, you might be a planner addict. It takes one to know one, and I've been one since my first planner at age 16. Of course, I never dreamed that it would become such a fad to decorate your planner as a "keepsake item," as some call it. I always doodled or put stickers on mine, but it's much more than that for me. A place to keep everything from work deadlines to appointments, passwords to goal lists and so much more, it's where a lot of my life takes place. It's also a creative outlet that helps keep my anxiety at bay.
I see so many people use their planners as scrapbooks lately and I'm torn. As much as I think it's great to foster creativity as much as possible, why bother to get the planner if you're just going to glue over everything anyway? Why not use a blank book instead, or even a cheaper planner if you don't need all it offers? For someone who needs every box and line and page, I couldn't glue over pages (although I do sticker over text already included!).
Do you use your planner as a crafting outlet? If so, how do you do it?
