I hope that by posting my weeks, you are able to see whatever trend I use for the week. I do plan my weeks ahead of time. I like to coordinate things and I sort of have a different theme going for each week. As you can see in some of the previous weeks, one week was "polka dots". The washi tape is polka dot. The hello kitty post-it tabs have polka dots. I like to also coordinate the colors. If some of the washi tape has purple in it, then I would choose a sticky flag or an arrow flag in that same color. For me, this makes it pleasing to the eye.
For example, another week was stripes. This gives the look of the pages more fluidity. Not just a mish mash of a bunch of things. I try not to make it look too chaotic. I know we all strive to pretty up our pages so that our weeks don't look so boring. I still like to keep some structure. After all, it is a planner. It's supposed to help us stay organized with our lives. Do what works for you. If you like using mark it dots, stickers, washi tape, highlighters, etc. As long as it gives you that inspiration and motivation to follow through with what is in your planner, then do it.
I'm no planner expert, but I hope that my advice helps you to better your planner.
