Hey planner friends! I’m back today with another pretty basic but still really helpful tip for your Happy Planner! One of my most favorite things about the Happy Planner is the ability to add and remove pages whenever I need to. I also like to create sections in my planners, but that can be hard to do without extra dividers. Here’s what I like to do, and how you can add sections to Happy Planners. I also filmed a video for my Youtube Channel on this tutorial, so you can check that out below, too.

Video tutorial to add sections-
To create your sections in your planner, you are going to need dividers! I have seen a couple of divider sets that Happy Planner has released, but they don’t offer a big selection. I like to use expansion packs! Happy Planner expansion packs are just undated sets of 6 months of pages for your planner. I picked up this dashboard expansion pack and just removed the dashboard planning pages, leaving just these really cute dividers.
Now, in my frankenplanner/transformer planner I have my two planners combined, plus six extra sections in the back.
