I love pretty note pads, paper and anything stationery based. I'm a complete sucker for this sort of thing, but more recently I have come to an understanding that if I actually put these things to good use they would be able to help me; a naturally disorganised person to become a more organised person and would be able to help me keep my life in check.
I have discovered that I need to micro manage everything or else I just let things slip and won't get them done. So with that being said I took a little trip to Wilko and Paperchase to buy some things, this is just scratching the surface of my wish list but I don't have a never ending piggy bank to fund my habit!
I picked up the cute little sticky notes on offer from Wilko for £1.25, I think they are adorable and can't wait to start using them. The beautiful A5 clipboard and pad is from Paperchase for £6, I think it's really pretty and will be really handy for writing my to do lists because it has the little tick boxes down the side for marking things off when they are done to keep me motivated! It also has a magnet on the back so you can keep it on your fridge for writing down your shopping lists!
This gorgeous weekly desk planner is something I am in love with, purple is my favourite colour so this is perfect for me. I need all the help I can get when it comes to being organised and this is going to be great for jotting down things I need to do in the week and writing down little notes when I'm surfing the net. I'm a massive sucker for pretty colour pens too and I thought that keeping things looking as cute as possible will make planning more fun.
Not as exciting as the rest of the stuff but I got 2 little zip up folders because I am hoping that I will be stocking up on lots of stickers to go in a planner I am yet to choose. They were so cheap at only 30p for the little one and 50p for the larger folder from Wilko. I want to take some steps towards getting everything in check and if spending a little money and investing in some planning materials will help me then I am all aboard. I am super excited to hop on the planner bandwagon for 2016 as well and have been researching the best ones available so if you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments below.
Happy planning everyone!
