As any planner addict knows, a planner addict is also a stsrionery addict. And what better excuse to use your stationery than in your planner, right?
In this post, I will show you my favorite and most-used.
This is a smattering of all the different supplies we all use. And we use it to make our planners functional, beautiful, and some may even say, a work of art. Why? Because for some, their planning system is also a creative outlet.
I don't decorate as much as some, but I still want my supplies to reflect my personality. In this case, I like pink! Duh! And I like pastels. And my choices tend to gravitate towards those colors.
Here's a rundown of the supplies I use and in some cases, photos of how I use them.
Pens, of course. I have preferred multi pens for a while now because of their convenience, and Pilot Coleto and Uni Style Fit are my favorites. I also have a pencil component most of the time, and I like a pencil eraser to erase (the black one in the photo below).
Like I said, I don't decorate much. When I do, it's for special occasions or to highlight a special day. Washi tapes come in handy and can make my pages pretty.
And I particularly love label washi tapes! I used one here to label my folder of supplies.
Highlighters aren't a necessity for me but I do use them sometimes. I also use them to color in my doodles which I've been enjoying to do lately. I'm a doodle novice so please forgive the amateurish doodles.
Stickers always come in handy when you need a quick pop of color. I don't use them much but I do have a few I like to play around with. The transparent ones are great for highlighting important dates.
And I think that's it. Stationery just makes planning much more fun. Doesn't it make paying a bill just a little less painful when it's written in a different color (green, in my case), or you have a sticker to remind you to pay it?
If I missed anything you think I need, do let me know. And I would love to hear how you all use your own stash of goodies to plan.
PS: I was lucky to find a local leather crafter who was willing to work with me to create the exact planner I wanted. She added the pockets here, her first time doing it, and I am so grateful to her. Lots of other leather makers do this but I didn't want to wait a month for it to be sent to me from overseas. (She made the hot pink one in this photo too.)
Thanks for visiting! Till next time!
