If you want a weekly spread that requires no set up but still gives you some flexibility, Happy Planner half sheet inserts are one of my favorite planning supplies.
Before the Pen
I wanted to use the Fun Brights mega sticker book, with the colours being a close match for Happy Planner’s ‘Planner Babe’ collection, I chose to pair the stickers with some half sheet inserts from that collection.
These inserts have good quality colour printing. Plus I can erase my Frixion pens multiple times and none of the colour printing on the inserts comes off, only the pen ink.
After the Pen
I used the top 3 section for weekly priorities, the bottom checklist for life admin. My day job has a mandatory 2 week shutdown period over Christmas and new year so I usually spend the 2nd week of holidays / 1st week of the year getting most of my annoying life admin out of the way including: checking my super balance, updating life insurance cover, deep cleaning the apartment, purging clothes etc.

Normally I can’t reposition the Happy Planner stickers but I was able to reposition the clean sticker with the transparent background without tearing the paper underneath.
As for the order of the rainbow colours for the list, I usually just find stickers that are a close color match for whatever colors are already on the planner or pens I’m using, then I typically just follow the order that those colors appear on the page so it coordinates.
I’ve made many printable cleaning checklists over the years but rather than grabbing one of those like I normally do, I wanted to keep the same theme as the rest of the spread. So I plucked cleaning tasks off my master cleaning tasks list (see this post) to do a more colorful and decorative list using stickers.

One of my sister’s got a puppy (maltese x shitzu) in November and this week was it’s first groom!
I used a classic size full box sticker on it’s side as a fitness tracker.
- P = Pilates
- Y = Yoga
- B = Barre
- The time represents how long so 20 = 20 minutes.
Then I can tick off the circle on the sticker once completed.

Would I use these inserts again?
Yes, the half sheet classic inserts are a great size for list making. The color printing on the Happy Planner inserts is really good quality, the paper is smooth to write on. There are plenty of half sheet inserts you can mix and match, and they have different designs on each side of the page too, so there are so many possible layout combinations you can make. I usually pair one of their pre-printed structured templates with a simple checklist or dot grid page. There are plenty of coordinating washi tapes and stickers so if you use their products together, the spreads always look pretty. I frequently use the Happy Planner inserts and recommend them.
The fun brights sticker book is the first mega sticker book I’ve felt has the right mix of functional but also colorful stickers. Usually I only like about half of the stickers in the Happy Planner sticker books, but this one I like about 2/3 of the stickers. It probably also helps that many of the sticker sheets are rainbow themed…
