Hello!! This is Jennifer, and today I’d like to share how to make a reusable shopping list for your planner using Popfizzpaper checklist box stickers. This is very handy because you can use it over and over, and because we’ll be using wet-erase markers, you can put it in your planner without worrying about your list smudging. You can even take the list out of your planner and throw it in your bag for on the go.

Either a laminator or a self-laminating pouch
Wet-erase markers (I used Expo Vis-a-Vis)
I made my shopping list for the Happy Planner, but this can easily be adapted for any sized planner, as I will mention below. First, trim your cardstock to about 2 1/2 inches wide. The length will be determined by what type of planner you’re using. Since I made mine for the Happy Planner, I did not need to trim the length. Next, take your Popfizzpaper checklist box stickers and lay them down along the right edge of the cardstock. I had an extra grocery cart icon sticker that coordinated with my checklist boxes, so I laid that down on the top of my list. You can make your list double-sided by adding more stickers to the back, lining them up along the left edge of the cardstock.
Before laminating, I added coordinating washi to both sides and rounded the corners. #washiallthethings #teamroundedcorners Now it’s time to either run your list through the laminator or use a self-laminating pouch.
After you’ve trimmed off the excess lamination, it’s time to hole-punch your list. If you have a Happy Planner and a disc punch that will go through lamination, you’re all set! If you don’t, simply use your cover as a template for the holes, mark them with your wet-erase marker, then punch with a regular hole-punch and cut a small slit on the side. For an Erin Condren Life Planner, use the same technique, but punch the holes with a 1/8 inch round hole punch. For a personal or A5 sized list, use a dashboard or divider as your template and punch.
There you have it! A durable shopping list for your planner. Wet-erase markers are easily erased with a damp paper towel and make this project more practical for on-the-go than dry-erase markers, but dry-erase markers can be used as well. Just be careful because dry-erase markers will rub-off very easily. I used the checklist box stickers from the Sunrise Palette kit to match my weekly spread, but these colors are so pretty, that I’m sure I’ll be moving this list around in my planner from week to week. Popfizzpaper has many colors of checklist box stickers to choose from, so you’ll be sure to find some that will be perfect for this project.
