Hello friends! I’m Ce Ce and you can find me over on Instagram at @plancreaterepeat. This is where I share my love for all things planner related. It is also a great place to get inspiration for your planner set up.
Blog Name: Plan Create Repeat
1. When did you start blogging and what made you want to start?
I started blogging about 8 years ago. I’ve had a couple of different blogs. One of which had a little success, it was called A Chicago Mom. With ACM, I was able to work with tons of brands and I even had the pleasure of meeting Steve Harvey and sitting in his studio audience for The Steve Harvey Show (that was a highlight :)! I started blogging so many years ago because I had recently become a new stay at home mom. I have an active mind and I could not just stay at home every day and not do anything, that would have drove me crazy.
2. When did you first start using a paper planner?
I have been a planner and stationery fan since I was a child. My first planner related toy was one of those little electronic diaries where you can put all your friends info in. Ever since I can remember, I have always had a notebook or planner (even when I didn’t have plans)!
3. What planner are you using for the new year?
OK, so this is a hard question for me, since I tend to switch planners often in a month. Sometimes I feel like I want a small planner, then I realize there’s not enough space in it for me. So to answer this question “lightly” (but don’t hold me to it, because you may visit my IG and see something totally different) I’m currently using the classic size Happy Planner. And I’m also looking into setting up a Travelers Notebook.
4. How many planners do you own?
A LOT!! But, I really only plan to use 2, both Happy Planners
5. If more than one, what do you use each one for?
One is for my everyday stuff and I have the mini Happy Planner for social media and blogging (work in progress).
6. What is your favorite pen to write with?
I love all Mommy Lhey pens, they write so smooth.
7. Do you have a planning routine? If so, please share.
Every Sunday I sit down and plan for the upcoming week, that way during the week I just follow my schedule.
8. Favorite store to shop for planner goodies?
Michael’s and Blitsy
9. Any recommendations / advice for someone who is just starting out in the planner community?
If you are going to set your planner up monthly, don’t write anything in, use sticky notes. That way if you change planners it will be easier to transfer. I made this mistake so many times 🙁
