So often we get a sheet of stickers that we have trouble using, or just want to look for other ways of using.
Today, I am going to show you how I am currently using the Day and Date sticker sheet that you get in the Cocoa Daisy Planner kit.
Because of course I am well into the month of March planning, I have used most of this sheet, but this gives you an idea of what the sheet we are going to be talking about looks like.
So lets go through all the stickers on the sheet
- 8 tiny arrows
- 4 bullet vertical flags
- 8 tear drops
- 16 small solid circles
- 6 large 1/2 split circles
- 6 small 1/2 split circles
- 6 house shape arrows
- 8 small 2 colored arrows
- 4 large 2 colored arrows
- 31 numbered banners, and 1 shape banner
- 13 word banners
Thats 110 stickers all on one little sheet! Amazing!!
The date/numbered banners are easy, I use them each month to date my days in my planner, I usually do this during my initial planner set up at the end of the month previous. This way if I have planning to do before the month I am currently in is done, I at least can put sticky notes in the right place in my new dori. As you can see I didn’t use the last date banner, but you could use it and write a previous months date on it if your week doesn’t begin on Monday or Sunday.
The tiny arrows I used to mark how much the trip to the mechanic was, but they could be used for work hours, or cleaning zones, or even to point to something you need to pay attention to.
The tear drop I used to signify a shopping excursion, but they could be used for pretty much anything that you want to ad a “bullet” to. for ladies, you could used them as your personal trackers as well, if you like to track that sort of stuff, or need to :).
The small solid circles could also be used for “bullets” on your lists, you could also use them on your monthly calendar to signify something is happening on that day if you don’t wish to write tiny on the front calendar in the dori’s.
The bullet vertical flags align perfectly with the grid on the front section of the dori’s. I use them for daily to do’s sometimes if there are a few things that just need to be done without going anywhere. You can also use the word banners here to signify to do’s, they fit right inside the grids as well!
I also use the word banners to separate my important tasks on my tip out page, I find it very easy to categorize my tasks with them, and again there is grid on this page, and the banners fit quite nicely within the grid!
I’ve decided that on the days that I want to track the weather that I would use the split circle stickers, and write the highs on the top half of the circle and the lows on the bottom half of the circle. (these temps are all in Celsius in case you were wondering) You could also use them turned the other way so the split is up and down as well, or even wrap them on the edge of your page to signify something important just by glancing at the edges of your dori.
The tiny little houses, I have been using to signify household bill dates, you could either write in the amount of the bill due, but I found it was easier to write in just an abbreviation of the bill on each little house, if you have more then 6 household bills, you could use the large or the small 2 colored arrows as well for tracking.
To keep things neat and tidy on your planner you could fit the 2 colored arrows in the bottom of the date flags as well if you wanted to keep things in the same spot each day. This is something that is best set up when you do your first planning in your dori, decide where things are going and to keep things cohesive, put them in that spot on each day, so that you know where to look if you are just quickly glancing over your pages.
I really hope you have enjoyed my post about this sticker sheet! There is no right or wrong way to use any of the stickers on any of the sheets, what ever they do for you, is what you should use them for. I hope my take on them was inspirational to you!
