2016 is my year! oh yes! my ORGANIZING year!
Let’s start off with my must-haves to get organized.
First off, I need my planner.
Every year, I usually buy my planner at a Target or Office Max. But this year, I decided to treat myself to the beauty of the Erin Condren Life Planner!! And I really do mean treat myself because my past planners have usually ranged from $12-$15 and the Erin Condren Life Planner is $50 plus shipping and handling. My co-worker had one last year and I thought it was super cute so of course I got one this year.
My 2016 Planner
I really love the colorful cover! I also am loving all the cool features inside the planner and the way its organized is super helpful.
(Maybe I’ll do a review on it one of these days!)
These are my planners from the last couple of years
As you can tell, I really like those eye-catching colorful covers!
Second, I need my Flair Pens.
They have such a variety of colors which is perfect for writing in your planner. I prefer my planner to look like a rainbow threw up all over it. (Look at the picture below to see what I mean…) Each different task, appt, etc. for the day is written in a different color because that’s the way I like it and it makes me happy! 🙂
The most important reason I love Flair Pens so much (besides the colors) is because they won’t bleed through the page, which of course is a MUST!
Thirdly, I need a cute pouch to keep my pens in.
This year, I have my pens in an aqua and gold pencil pouch I got at Office Max.
Fourthly, I need post-it notes (or sticky notes).
These I keep inside my planner or in my pen pouch. I like having the standard post-it note size and the smaller square size as well. The ones I am currently using, I got at the dollar section at Target.
These are my planner organizing essentials! Ain’t they pretty! I’m loving 2016 so far!
