It may be March – a quarter of the way through 2017! – but it’s never too late to get organised. At the beginning of the year I got completely inspired to start up a Planner/Diary. However, I purchased scrapbooking stickers etc. off eBay and from Hong Kong, so they’ve only just arrived! Nevertheless i thought i’d still show you my planner ideas and it may give you some inspiration to get organised!
The planner i have is from Kikki K, this is a rather expensive planner you can get loads for only a few pounds from Wilkos, WHSmith etc. If you sign up to Kikki K, you get a £5 off voucher so it works out at only £1 delivery opposed to £6 which is why i got it! They do have some stores around the UK as well. This particular planner comes with a weekly view and notes section, as well as it’s only little pack off stickers at the back.
The way i begun organising my live via this planner is starting with birthdays! I used the stickers to highlight everyone’s important birthdays (and obviously my own!) as well as add in all uni deadlines, any student loan dates etc. The bit i’m most excited about putting in are my holiday’s – however none are quite booked yet so that exciting time will have to wait.
I also thought i’d share with you the few sticker packs i purchased. These are both off eBay and i think we’re about £2 each so really cheap for the number of stickers you get! You also get a wide variety, some are a bit random but if you want specific types – you can get money icons, airplane icons, particular symbols that relate to different tasks but i just opted for some random selections.
Finally, the reason i actually decided to start a planner was also to remember my year in a pretty and visual way! Next year i’ll be able to look back over it and remember what i did and it’ll just be a nice thing to keep over the years!
