I’m always impressed with people who can do No Spend months. I’ve never had the discipline to not buy any planner supplies for a whole month. This month was no exception, because without meaning to, I have acquired quite the planner haul this month.
As a quick recap, I’ve basically used every sort of planner. My main planner the few years has been a traveler’s notebook. But, as I’ve been blogging, running and Etsy shop, and I run my household, I realized I needed something more functional and less showy.
Somehow, I ended up with the Happy Planner. I love that I can punch pages in with an arc punch and just stick them into my planner. I added note pages into the back to keep track of all my random ideas, and I have half pages that I use to write down my grocery list. When it’s time to go to the store, I pull them out of my planner and toss the list into my purse. Done!
I also meandered into Target this month. Have I mentioned I list an hour from the nearest Target? It’s not easy to just pop into that store. I have to plan for it. But trust me, I make sure to go up and down every aisle in that store before I leave.
The Dollar Spot is my absolute favorite!
So, here’s a list of what I’ve got this month!
- Glitter Pink Washi Tape (Target)
- Blank Month sticky notes (Target)
- Variety pack of sticky notes (Target)
- Happy Planner (Joann’s and Hobby Lobby – oops I got two haha)
- Happy Planner Note Pages (Michael’s)
- Happy Planner List Pages (Michael’s)
- Tul Disc-bound Punch (Office Depot)
Target always gets me with their sticky notes in their Dollar Spot. Always. I may as well just throw all my money into the Target Dollar Spot haha.
I didn’t mean to get two Happy Planners, honestly. But one I got at Joann’s and then I found a Daydreamer Happy Planner at Hobby Lobby on clearance. Say whaaa? Yeah, it has metal discs. I couldn’t resist.
What ended up happening is I franken-planned my two planners into one planner. I promise I’ll post about that soon. I’m quite pleased with my results of combining both planners.
Do you use a planner? Which one do you use?
