Memory keeping in your Happy Planner™ can be as easy as printing out a few 1.5 x 1.5 inch favorite photos of the month, adhering them in the monthly squares representing the day in which they took place, and filling your blank days with washi or stickers or handwritten notes. That's what mambi Social Media Coordinator Amanda Zampelli (blog | IG) has done since the beginning of this year.

About these monthly pages, Amanda writes:
"I have stuck to the same system that has worked for me so nicely since the beginning of the year. I do NOT to fill in the squares ahead of time, but instead include a photo after the day has passed. At the end of the month, those days that don't have a photo - I will usually include a sticker or a jot in that box.
I love how flipping from monthly tab to monthly tab will give you a quick overview of my year, and flipping through the weekly pages will give you a more in depth version of what you see in the monthly. THAT'S the beauty of memory keeping in a planner: it's formatted on a established dated template."
"You can see my June monthly spread so far below. It's exciting to see how each month follows the same protocol, yet looks uniquely its own. I think that's what's rooted in mambi's message of 'make it work for you'. Experiment with ways to fill your Happy Planner™, and when you tap into a process that's fun or relaxing or makes you more productive, REPEAT. Repeat and hone it. THAT'S what makes your Happy Planner™ work for you, and helps you develop your own planner style."
