“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.”
― Albert Einstein
Hey guys! If you watched the “Why I Love HP” video, linked above, you know one of my fave features of the Happy Planner is the flexibility of their disc system. You might hear the term “rings” and that’s referring to the same thing. Some people like to call them “rings” even though on the MAMBI website it is technically calls them “discs” but to me they’re the same thing so I never bother to correct people because at the end of the day it’s just not worth it.
Speaking of the MAMBI website, as you can see, they have a TON of choices to choose from!!!
How is a Happy Planner supposed to choose?
Well, that’s what this post is for! The ultimate guide to Happy Planner discs. So stay tuned to the end to see them all! Because I mean them ALL! And don’t forget to hit subscribe to join Claire’s Club and hit the bell so you don’t miss one of my new videos posted M-F!
Before we get to the discs, and oh are we going to get to the discs! Let’s first cover the SIZES of the PLANNERS themselves. Because that will help everything make more sense.
So there’s a few different sizes to choose from:
1. Micro (new in 2019) –> 4 mini discs
FEW that's a LOT of choices right there! Begs the question ... how is a #HappyPlanner to choose? Click To Tweet
2. Mini –> 7 mini discs (but you can use the regular discs to expand your planner!)
3. Classic –> 9 regular or expander size discs
4. BIG –> 11 regular or expander size discs
The same sizes apply to the “Happy Notes” too.
Well, I suggest by asking what size planner you want. That depends on what you’re going to use it for!
Some people like the smaller sizes for travelling. The BIG Happy Planner is great for teachers or people with very busy schedules. Me? I’m still obsessed with the Classic Happy Planner with the EXPANDER rings because I love a CHUNKY planner!
I also have a mini that I keep in the car to track my miles as an Uber driver. Or I do when I remember to do so!
So the possibilities are truly endless!
Here’s a close up of each of the discs! I’m 99.999999% sure the mini discs fit the “micro” planner too. As I don’t personally yet own a “micro” planner, I can’t say for certain! But I’m pretty sure because on the shop, they do not have a page for the Micro discs!
So here we go! Onto the discs!
1. Mini Metal (Micro + Mini)
2. Medium Metal (Classic + BIG)
3. Medium Expander Metal (Chunky Classic + BIG Chunky)
4. Mini Plastic Discs (Micro + Mini)
5. Medium Plastic Discs (Classic + BIG)
6. Medium Expander Plastic Discs (Classic Chunky + BIG Chunky)
As mentioned, what size to choose from depends on what you PLAN on using the PLANNER for. See what I did there?
