I love my iPhone. It's awesome. So convenient. Couldn't live without it. But for me, there is something about sitting down and using a planner that just makes me a much more organized and productive person. It's fun to put pen to paper. And I just love using stickers and washi tape and colorful pens and post-it notes etc. So every night I sit down with my planner and my supplies and figure out what comes next.
These are my tools:
Pencil CaseSomewhere along the line I had stopped using a pencil case. I now have homes, and desks, with drawers. Why would I need a pencil case? But then all of a sudden I had all of these supplies that I wanted to use with my planner. Not only did I need a pencil case but I needed a big pencil case. I use the middle bag from this set by Carolina Herrera. At 8x11 it's a little larger than my Erin Condren planner. Perfect!
My planner supplies include:
Scissors * Tape Measure * Calculator * 5x8 lined Post-it notes * 4x6 grid Post-it notes * Russell and Hazel Sticky To Do notes * Star shaped Post-it notes * Square Post-it notes * Banner sticky notes * Washi tape * Custom Pencils * Set of 5 Sharpie retractable highlighters * Set of 12 Paper Mate Flair colored pens * Stationary and Stamps
Washi TapeI love this tape so much. There are so many colors and designs to chose from and it's a perfect way to make something really stand out in my planner. (I use this to flag school breaks on my monthly pages)
Sticky NotesI keep several different kinds in my pencil case.
Star shaped for 3 in 30 goals
Banners and Pointers from K and Company
To do lists from Russell and Hazel
Custom PencilsOne of my daughter's favorite t-shirts has the slogan "Dress Like Lilly, Act Like Audrey, Think Like Jackie" on the back. I bought it here.
I liked the saying so much that I ordered three sets of custom pencils from here.
Pink - Dress Like Lilly
Green - Act Like Audrey
Silver - Thinks Like Jackie
Why don't you pick a favorite quote and order your own pencils? Custom pencils - they're not just for kids!
What supplies do you keep with your planner?
