Your girl is here to help you destress on top of this hectic semester she’s been going through. I’ve always wanted to start making calmer and more productive videos so here’s my first take on it.
- Put your contact info in ASAP, if you ever lose your planner aka your life, wouldn’t you want someone to let you know they’ve found it?
- Create designated “planning” time, like Sunday mornings to relax and prepare for the upcoming week.
- Get a master list of all the events/exams/projects/etc that you have to take on. Or you can just gather all of your syllabuses together.
- INVEST IN STICKERS. Or at least colored pens and markers. I swear they’ll make becoming productive more enjoyable. And I mean, the more you spend money on something, the more you’ll feel the need to get use out of it, right?
Past planner-related video:
If you want the Kate Spade look on a budget, this is the planner for you! It’s a Sugar Paper planner 2016-2017 available at Target, $10.99. I’m a very picky person when it comes to planners & stationery and finding this was a pleasant surprise. (Even though I caved a few days later and ordered a Ban.do agenda for $28, I’ll be doing a review on it later compared to the Lilly Pulitzer one.)
- dates to remember 2016-2019
- contacts (7 pages/3.5 sheets)
- July 2016-June 2017 weekly & monthly calendars
- notes in the back (19 pages/9.5 sheets)
- the cover is fun to touch/feel, it’s smooth
- the paper is good quality
- weekly layout has no lines, perfect for decorating
- it is pretty thin since it’s a 12 month planner so it fits easily into a bag/backpack
- the paper has a slightly funky smell (like dried shrimp) if you sniff it but fades a bit
- doesn’t have a small folder or elastic band to hold it, but that’s just a personal preference for me
