Planner has been a big help with my time management. Adding a few planner accessories makes it easier for me to plan on weekly basis.
As I mentioned on my previous post, I’ve been using The Happy Planner from Me and My Big Ideas. I usually get my planner from Michael’s on the days when they offer coupons. Usually they give a discount of 20-50%. But what makes planning a lot more fun are the accessories. Here are 5 planner accessories that you might find helpful. (These are not necessary to start with Planners but they definitely add more fun into doing weekly planning.)
This is usually for students who love to bring their planners with them to school or for entrepreneurs who prefer to have their planner in hand when going for business meeting. Storage case is a good place to put your planners and planner accessories in to keep them all in one place.
I love decorating my planner with stickers. Since I’m using Me and My Big Ideas, I also use their stickers to fit my planner’s weekly spread. My favorite sticker is their Productivity Value Pack Stickers. It helps me set my goals and manage my tasks while making my planner look fun. They also have the Life Quotes Stickers that surprisingly helps motivate me on days when I get discouraged from blogging. Another sticker that I use is the Fitness Value Pack Stickers to help me keep track of my weight loss program.
I love my Staedtler Marker pens because of its fine tip and it has different colors to help me color code my tasks.
If you are like me who always loses my pens, you can get one of the pen cases that you can snap into your planner to keep them from getting lost.
The Happy Planner has extension packs that you can add to your planner. I personally use Budget Edition extension pack to help me manage my finances. I also have the Fitness extension pack to help me keep track of the weight loss program I created for myself.
For most of these planner accessories, you can create your own or pick something else that you are more comfortable using. However, I find that getting them as ready made are much more convenient than creating my own. After all, I usually don’t get them at full price. Michael’s always has coupons available on their website that could give you a big discount.
