If you’ve been around for a while then you know I am planner freakin’ obsessed! I’ve tried multiple planners, different planning styles, and I never leave home without whatever planner I’m using at the time. Today on my YouTube channel I’m sharing all of my current must-haves with you! Click here or click the video at the end of the post to check it out!
I’ve used several different types of planners over the past few years, but two of my all times favorite planners are the Erin Condren Life Planner in the hourly layout and the Bloom Daily Planners Vision Planner. The Erin Condren planners are customizable, so you can choose between a hourly, horizontal, or vertical layout with a colorful or neutral theme. I love that you can buy interchangeable covers as well! Next is the Bloom Daily Planners Vision Planner. It is super goal oriented and has pages for your yearly goals and bucket list, your vision board for the year, and before each monthly layout you have a place to collect all of your short term goals for the month. I loveee both of these planners so much!
I love a good pen, like, really love a good pen. I have tons of them in all different colors, and I use them all for different things. The Pilot FriXion Clicker Erasable Gel Pens are the ones that I use in my Bloom Daily Planners Vision Planner. The paper isn’t super thick so most pens bleed though, but these don’t. And the fact that they’re erasable makes me love them even more! The paper in the Erin Condren Life Planners is a bit thicker, so I can use pretty much any pen I want to. I love the Paper Mate Inkjoy Gel Pens, the Paper Mate Flair Felt Tip Pens, the Le Pen .03 Point pens, the Staedtler Triplus Fineliner Pens, and the classic Erin Condren Colorful Dual-Tip Markers. Like I said, I love a good pen.
Stickers are huge in the planner world and have been for quite some time. I used tons of sticker kits when I first started planning, but now my style is more deco-functional with a few seasonal stickers thrown in! Some of my favorite places to get planner stickers are Michaels, Hobby Lobby, Paper & Glam, The Paperly Bowtique, Bloom Daily Planners, Sweet Ava’s Paper, and tons more Etsy shops – click here to see all of my favorite sticker shops on Etsy!
Dashboards & More
Now for all the random extras! I love adding dashboards to my planner for running to-do lists, keeping track of videos I need to film, grocery shopping, and more. I currently have the Snap-In To-Do List Dashboard and the Snap-In Grocery List Dashboard in my planner. I also use planner pouches to help me carry my pens, stickers, and more. The Planny Pack and my planner pouch from Etsy (see similar ones here) are the two I use the most! I also always carry a Sharpie for my dashboards, sticky notes, and washi tape!
