I have to admit, I like organizing in paper format. I like the tactile aspects, and the records that it keeps. I’ve tried organizing electronically, but then I delete the task once I have completed it and there is no record of what I’ve accomplished. There is something about crossing the task off the to-do list that is so satisfying! Plus pretty stickers, colored pens, and washi tape!
Some things are suited for electronic form, such as a list you plan to share with someone else or a list of links that you want to be able to easily click on. However, I find that for my purposes I like the paper versions especially for scheduling, tracking, and gratitude.
I am constantly on the lookout for ways to improve my planner habit and there are always new ones to discover! When life picks back up post-quarantine, I plan to return to using weekly spreads instead of monthly and I love to mix them up based on my new stickers or a specific theme.
I have been stockpiling some of my supplies, waiting for the chance to get to use them!
These beautiful Erin Condren mini monthly tabs are on hold until the end of the year when I start planning out my 2022 layouts. Tabs like these are so awesome for any bullet journal style since they just stick right to your pages. I’ve already been using these beautiful tab stickers this year to divide things out by month and by topic. By the way, do check out Sunshine Sticker Co. for so many wonderful functional stickers and washi tapes! I would place another order today if I didn’t already have so many pretty stickers to use!
Speaking of stickers, I highly encourage you to check out some of these brands that are just waiting for you:
- the Planner Kate shop or the Paper Planner Club on Etsy
- the Coco and Opal subscription kit on CrateJoy
If you are looking for templates and printables to add to your bullet journal, I invite you to take a look at some of my favorites – the One-Page Monthly, several weekly planner page options, and even the Canva Planner Template.
