Friday Favorites // Favorite Planner Accessories

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!


Erasable Pens  I use erasable pens for basically everything I write. I'm so glad I discovered them. The pens I use are called 'Pilot FriXion' erasable pens. You can find them on Amazon here. I also found them at my local Walmart, but I'm not sure that all Walmarts carry them. 'Pilot FriXion' also sells erasable highlighters. I use these a lot when I'm memorizing scripture. It's helpful to highlight were I messed up every time I review a verse, and that way when I read it over again, it stands out, making it easier for me to remember the next time I try to recite it!


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.

  2. I love this post, Katie!! PLANNERS SAVE LIVES HONESTLY. I use mine so much it's crazy. I always love adding quotes and doodling in them, and it's interesting to look back on old planners and see what was kind of going on in my mind.

    AND THIS IS RANDOM but do you play volleyball? I saw you had a bunch of pins about it. That is so cool! Volleyball is absolutely amazing.

    1. Thanks Autumn, I'm glad you liked it! Yes! Planners are such a life saver! Mine often turns into more of a scrapbook, or journal also. :)

      Yes, I do! I love playing volleyball with my family and friends, and this year I joined my home school co-op's v-ball team for the first time. I absolutely love it! Volleyball is the best sport ever! :D

      I love your blog, and thanks for stopping by mine!

  3. I love this post! I've been looking for a new planner all month and haven't found one I love yet. I'm gonna look into the one you mentioned above! I use SO many sticky notes for everything. I write assignments and due dates and reminders on them and leave them everywhere!

    1. I'm glad you liked it, Jessica! I would highly recommend the happy planner. This is my first year using it, and it's been great so far! Aaah, sticky notes are so wonderful!! I usually have several on my mirror at once. :D I'm so glad they were invented!

      Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  4. Hey Katie! I'm so glad you love your happy planner! I was actually looking at it for this year, but I didn't get one. I might have to look into it for next year - you make it looks so fun! (And I'm totally checking out the erasable highlighters for my *sob* last year in BB!!!)

    You have a great blog and my sister (Julia) made your biscuits a few weeks ago...those are hands down the best biscuits I've ever had!

    1. Yes, you should! I love how it's set up, I have room to write everything in it!

      Your last year in BB?!?! Aw, man! That's SO sad!! :/ Hey- well you'll just have to volunteer at nats in 2018 and you can bring your sister and stay at our house while your here. ;)

      Thank you so much! Wow seriously?! Thanks a ton! I'm glad y'all enjoyed them!! :)
