Planner Setup for 2023

Another year in my Planners Anon Melodies. Hopefully I might add a third to the line-up this year and have a dedicated Christmas planner (hello Christmas at Home). Maybe even splurge and buy myself a Melody for Spring or Autumn – possibly Sakura for Spring and All for Fall for Autumn. It depends on what Sami brings out this year.

This year I’m shaking things up a bit. I’m using both the strings and rings in the Melody. On the front string I’ve got a B6 TN Undated Monthly Glance from Lights Planner Action for all my monthlies, monthly goals, important dates
On the rings I have 4 dividers set up. The first is Yearly which contains my Master Birthday & Anniversary list and my 23 goals for 2023. I’ll be adding moon phases, yearly oracle reading, yearly numerology & corresponding Tarot in here too.
Next is my weeklies. I printed a bunch of dot grid paper which I downloaded. There is a blank page and the front and back of each month so I can decorate the front and do a monthly roundup on the back.
Third divider houses my trackers – mood, sleep and period. I have a master habit tracker on my Google Drive that I purchased from Thyme is Honey. I’m thinking I’ll add a paper habit tracker to this section and just transfer the data at the end of each month.
The forth, and last divider, is my Misc section. Movies to watch & have watched. Books to read and have read. TV shows and Podcasts
On the back string I have a planner pocket from Planners Anon I’m using to store the stickers I use every week (like my rubbish bin stickers from Luscious Labels)

Here’s a quick flick through (& sneak peak of some of my January pages)

You can see my previous setups in these posts – 2022 | 2021

Catching up – the rest of 2022 in my planner

September sees me move into my Spring/Summer planner which is a Planners Anonymous B6 melody from the Note to Self range.
I changed up my planner inserts a bit for the remainder of the year – a mix of boxed, bullet journal and even had a go at designing my own.

September was the boxed Masquerade insert from Planners Anonymous, October was the insert I designed using the Planners Anon For the Boos digital creative kit, November was Planners Anon Dream Chaser luxe bujo insert and December was another bujo insert from Planners Anon (I can’t remember which one). I have to admit I am really loving playing with bullet journal spreads again.

Catching up – My Winter planner 2022

July and August were still in my Planner Anonymous Northern Lights melody cover. Inserts are from Planners Anonymous as well with
July being a bujo insert (I can’t remember which one) and August was Dream Chaser.

September sees me move back into my Spring/Summer planner – the Planners Anonymous Note to Self melody.

In my planner – May & June 2022

Back into my planner for the next two months – May & June.

May was the Planners Anonymous Chapter 3 Luxe B6 wide insert. June was the new Bujo layout of inserts for Planners Anonymous, this one is for Planner Love. It’s been fun playing with bujo layouts again.

Stickers used come from Planners Anonymous, Luscious Labels, The Printable Collection, Victoria Thatcher, KHD Stickers and my personal junk journal supplies

In my planner – March & April 2022

I’ve moved into my Planners Anonymous Northern Lights melody for the Autumn/Winter period. I love the watercolour images and the purples in this planner.

Inserts are from Planners Anonymous. March was Tropicanna luxe (holding on to summer as long as I can) and April was Hygge Life luxe.
Stickers and washi from Planners Anonymous, Luscious Labels, KHD Studios, Min Van Dreams, The Printable Collection, Victoria Thatcher & Pink Pixel Graphics

In my planner–January & February 2022

This year I thought I’d share my planner spreads each quarter. Hopefully it might give someone some inspiration for how they can use planner kits – the majority of my pages are created using the subscription boxes from Planners Anonymous.

January and February rounded out Summer in my Note to Self melody. January I used the Planners Anonymous Masquerade luxe B6 wide insert and February I used an older luxe B6 insert from the Planners Anonymous kit Love Bug.

Stickers are from Planners Anonymous, Luscious Labels, Mom Envy and Pink Pixel Graphics.

For Autumn & Winter (March through August) I’m moving into my Northern Lights melody from Planners Anon.

My planner set up in 2022

Not much is really changing this year in my planner (you can read my 2021 setup post here). I’ll still be using my combo of the Planners Anonymous Note to Self B6 Melody for Spring/Summer and Northern Lights B6 Melody for Autumn/Winter…… unless I get a new cover for my birthday at the end of January, or through the year *fingers crossed*


Inside I’ve got my B6 pocket in Water droplets (blue) from DesleyJane Plans to house my most used weekly stickers. At the moment they are stickers from Luscious Labels, KHD Stickers, Moby & Co and Kmart monthly planner stickers (sadly these are no longer available)


Page lifters at each end of the planner made by me using the Planners Anon Note to Self digital kit. Printed on 200gsm paper and glued to some cardstock.
Dashboards by DesleyJane Plans. I currently have Pink Petals and Water Droplets (blue). Dark Romance is in my Northern Lights planner.067

and finally – Planners Anon luxe B6 inserts. January is Masquerade. I’m hoping Planner Love will be available soon so I can use that for February.

My planner setup for 2021

Well, wasn’t 2020 an interesting year. Stuck at home. Schooling from home. Endless Zoom calls. Not a real lot to put in the planner….

If you read my post from this time last year (thanks for sticking around and if you are new, Welcome!) I was in the Planners Anonymous Planner Babe TN. Well Sami did not disappoint and released the gorgeous Northern Lights Melody (more about that in a bit), as well as another 7 Melody planners.

What is a Melody Planner? To quote Planners Anon….

“The concept behind the melody is simple. We wanted to create a planner that is flexible and able to grow and change as you do. Inspired by life and music, this planner is composed from the ground up. The cover has the unique ability to segue between rings, strings, discs, booklets and book bound inserts.

How will you use your Melody?”


I bought the Northern Lights one as soon as it was released but decided not to go with the rings bundle, cause I was not really a rings girl (been there done that) but after a few months caved and ended up going rings & strings. Fast forward another few months and they released the Note to Self Melody.


I bought this one and the rings bundle as well. So I currently have a Spring/Summer planner (Note to Self) and an Autumn/Winter (Northern Lights) AND I’ve gone back to rings for my inserts.

After all that, here’s my setup for 2021 (at this stage anyway)

  • Cover – Planners Anonymous Melody Planner with rings and strings
  • 2021 B6 Single Page Monthly + Tracker Printable Insert from Annie Plans Printables
  • Dashboards by DesleyJane Plans. I currently have Pink Petals, Dark Romance and Water Droplets (blue)
  • Pocket also by DesleyJane Plans in Water Droplets (blue) for the stickers I use every week
  • Monthly inserts from Planners Anonymous that came with the rings bundle. They are hoping to have them as a separate purchase soon.
  • Custom made dot grid TN insert in the back for collections & notes. I just made this myself by cutting down some A4 dot grid paper to B6 and made a cover from the Planners Anonymous Planner Babe freebie (which you can grab, along with other freebies, here)


So that’s my planner for 2021 in a nutshell. How are you planning this year?

YouTubing it

My little channel on YouTube is slowly growing. I’ve now got three Planners Anon unboxings up as well as my first Chasing Planner Peace on. I have a new CPP one I’m editing and a couple of Planners Anon ones planned (when my parcels arrive). I may even do a voice over on one of the Planners Anon ones, who knows Winking smile

Anyway,  would love it if you popped over and checked out my vids, maybe Subbed to my channel and gave me a thumbs up
