Today we're starting a new "series" on the blog! I'm super excited for this- it's called 'Friday Favorites'! Every now and then on a Friday, I'll post about a few of my favorite things. These lists will usually have a theme. Today, for the very first Friday Favorites post, the theme is planner accessories!
New year, new planner. This year I'm using the Create 365 The Happy Planner, by 'Me & My Big Ideas'. I absolutely love this planner, it works great for me! Today I'm going to share with y'all my favorite planner "accessories" I use. Here we go!
Sticky Notes I love using sticky notes in my planner. They add a lot of color, and a colorful planner is way funner to use in my opinion. And what good does a planner do you if you don't use it?! :) Sticky notes also make something pop out on a page. Plus you can easily move them around, so if I'm not sure what day something's going to happen, I'll write it on a sticky note instead of writing it directly onto the paper. (Though it's easy to erase something and move it to another day with my erasable pen, I'd still prefer not to, if I have the option)
Washi-Tape I use washi-tape every chance I get. And I do mean every chance. Who doesn't love colorful tape that is easy to decorate anything with?! I find my planner as a great chance to use washi-tape! (It's also helpful. :D) A few ways I use it in my planner are...
• To mark a birthday, or holiday.
• To mark a vacation, or longer than one day event. Its great for this because you can just roll it along multiple days. (As in the picture above)
You can find washi-tape cheaper online than in craft stores. Here are a few Etsy shops to check out if your looking into buying some!
Magnetic Bookmarks With my happy planner, came two magnetic bookmarks (As well as a few pages of stickers, and a page of sticky notes). I have to admit I had never seen magnetic bookmarks before, but I fell in love at first sight! Bookmarks can be super helpful, but also kind of annoying! At least most bookmarks that I've used. But as you can see in the picture above, magnetic bookmarks are pretty small, and just fit at the top of the page, so you don't have to take them out cause they're in the way, thus you don't forget about them! You can buy them off of amazon here. They also come in most happy planner kits, which is where I got mine.
