Welcome back to my page!
Before we start, you can obviously see that I have my own domain name now! I changed my name to Creatively Organized. Do you guys like it? I wanted something a little different, something a little more vague. I didn't really like using my name for everything either so here we are!
Today's post is on the insides of my Kikki.K!
I've always been a spiral bound kind of girl. I've used so many different ones, from Walmart brands all the way to my favorites, Erin Condren and Limelife Planners.
Recently, Limelife Planners has come out with an a5 version of their planner. It comes punched and ready to go. They had a sale for their birthday celebration, and I knew it was the perfect time to test it out. As this semester comes, I wanted a planner that I could use for multiple things. I needed something that I could have my regular day planner, my internship and school calendar, and a wedding journal.
So here it is!
I bought this planner off Instagram because it was sold out when I was looking for one. And let me tell you, I am LOVING this color. It's stunning.
In the inside pocket, I put the clear flags that I use to mark future dates (you'll see in the future pictures), weather stickers, and an assortment of miscellaneous Etsy stickers from some wonderful shops!

I have two different types in my planner. I have the dividers that come with the Limelife Planner which are the cardstock monthly dividers, and I have the pastel covered Kikki.K dividers that come with the planner.
I love using my monthly planner to mark important things from the month. I'll usually mark things like days I need to give my Kitten her medicine, appointments, Arizona Cardinals games, and important details for the wedding.
Before Decorated Monthly
This is how my monthly looks before the month begins. I mark my important dates using the page flags that I showed before in this post. About 3-4 days before the month starts, I'll sit down and permanently put them into the planner. I usually don't put washi down yet, but I found this washi at Target and I'm obsessed with it.
***head on over to my IG for those***
I have January-July binder clipped shut so that it's a little more organized. I don't like not having a full years worth of planning in here but I do take out the weeklies so it's not jam packed.
~~NEXT AFTER SCHEDULE~~
This is where I'm tracking all of my internship hours and the day I have classes. I used to have a separate planner for this, but I like having both schedules together so I don't have to carry two separate ones everywhere. Once I get my class schedules, I will also record when assignments are due, and when breaks are (that's most important right?) :)
These inserts are the ones that come with the Kikki.K planner.
I just use post it tabs to mark the different pages in each section so that they are easy to reference.
I put a LOT of notepaper in here to jot down ideas and inspiration I get throughout the day.
I got calendar inserts to mark when I wanted to have blog posts, but I haven't used them.
But I am writing down inspirations as I go.
These notes are to my last blog post on DIY stickers.
Here I am marking phone numbers, companies, date of deposits, and when final payments need to be due. I have been so busy planning and organizing for the wedding, it's been nice to have everything all together. The perks of a binder planner.
I did a homemade bill payment schedule and this allows to make sure all the payments are being paid on time! I couldn't find one that met my needs, so I made my own.
Behind this page, I have a username and password page that links up with all the payments.
Since my boyfriend is leaving for the Army, I wanted a space that I could write down funny memories, important details, etc., that I really want to tell him. These are just Target Dollar Spot notepads that I've stamped on! I think they're adorable!
And in this section, is just a bunch of random note type pages. I use both Target dollar spot pages, and Kikki.K notepad sheets as well. I really love being able to utilize all of the notepads I've accumulated over the years! ;)
Okay, so that's my planner. I really love this planner and all that it stands for. In this binder planner, I am able to have all aspects of my life. I don't need to carry around 3 different planners to make sure I have everything I need. I am able to be organized, yet look sophisticated when I go into work, my internship, my classes, or a wedding event.
Life can throw you twists, and plans can change. It's nice to have a binder system that works for me, that allows me to hang on tight, and get through each day.
I hope this helps you when planning, and gives you some ideas.
