Day 25, 26 & 27 Planner Addicts Challenge

We're coming down to the end of the photo-a-day challenge for Planner Addicts Facebook Group.
Today I wanted to share three days in order to finish up the challenge tomorrow.
In October, I'll be concentrating on my Smash book and a birthday banner!

25: Pockets
Inside my Filofax pocket is a space to hold credit cards, gift cards but I use these
pockets to hold clips and some smash post it notes. One thing for sure, this can change weekly depending on what I want to work on while at work.

26: Pen Case
I use this Hello Kitty to tote my pens to work., the little pencil case came from Michaels craft store, I think I paid $2. But I also have a more expensive organizer that I got from Mochi Things and it cost $30.95!
 27: Planner Charms
The hubby and I were in Las Vegas in March for a spring vacation and I picked up a couple of charms. This is the perfect size for my Filofax and I remember our trip every day!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great week!

Day 24 Planner Addicts Challenge - Brand NEW!

Day 24: Brand New!
This might be my favorite photo-a-day of the challenge!
I just received in the mail some super cute washi tape!

I got this set of thin washi tape from the web site, Jane. It's a great site that has daily deals and while this deal is over, you can check out her Etsy store, Sage K and Co.

I don't have much Christmas washi tape and I found this on another website that features daily deals, Crafty Steals, and always super fast delivery!
And my last washi purchase is from Cute Tape, and they have so many washi tapes to pick from.
With all this new washi tape, this is leading me to another purchase,
masking tape case! $15.99 and a great way to see your washi tape!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Day 22 & 23 Planner Addicts Challenge

Day 22: Post It Notes and Flags
It was fun to pull out my collection of post it notes!
Did you know that Target has so many to pick from in the $1 section?

Day 23: To Do
One of the reasons I have a Filofax is to help me remember what I want to get done.
This to do list is for this weekend.
While some people spend their weekends working on projects around the home such as cleaning,
I try to get my cleaning done during the week so my weekends are for doing my own projects.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Day 20 Planner Addicts Challenge - Handwriting

Day 20: Handwriting
These days we don't spend much time handwriting things, most things are done on the computer.
I used to really like my handwriting but not so much anymore.
It's probably because I'm in a hurry and don't take the time to make it pretty.
I have a section in my Filofax - Quotes,
and while my handwriting is far from pretty, it's me!
Let me show you a few quotes that I really like.

Do you write down quotes that you like or how do you remember them?
If you have a favorite quote, please leave me a comment, I'd love to see what inspires you!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a wonderful day!

Day 16, 17, 18 & 19 Planners Addict Challenge

I am so behind in posting my photos for this challenge.
In order to get caught up, I'll combine several days in this post.
Day 16: Supplies
I have become obsessed with Hello Kitty stationary items and have them
store in the hot pink nylon zippered pouch I picked up for a dollar at Target.
And would you believe this is only half of what I have?
I bought this whole bunch of Hello Kitty stuff off a You Tube video and it was offered at a great price. If you haven't thought of You Tube videos as a place to pick up great deals, there are lots of
people selling their unwanted things at great discounted prices.
I have more Hello Kitty things that I'll ever use but I'll give some away and also
lots will be for my little granddaughter.
Also included with the items I bought, were these cute Hello Kitty paperclips and post it notes.
I'm in love with tiny post it notes for my Filofax.
After this challenge is over, I'll be sharing my two Filofaxes and how I'll be decorating them using  post it notes.
Day 17: Creative
I'm just in the beginning stages of organizing my second Filofax and
added to the front, my laminated name divider.

Day 18: By My Drink
After I have my coffee, I will sit down to the computer with my glass of orange juice.

Day 19: Planner Caddy
I bought my caddy at Joanns and keep all my Filofax supplies here.
Makes for easy finding what I need and also I can see that I have a little
room for more things!!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Day 15 Planner Addicts Challenge

Day 15: Leaning tower of planners.
I keep my planners on the desk for easy referencing.
I've used binders that I've gotten from my kids when the school year was finished.
But I've also found great binders and file dividers at garage sales for pennies on the dollar.

In the first binder on the left, this binder is holding Christmas Planner that I bought from The Organised Housewife. Which I'll be starting to work on Christmas items very soon!

The second binder holds my scrapbooking things, separated by printouts of projects and
the True Scraps that I've attended.

The third binder holds the 20 Days to Organise and Clean Your Home Challenge printouts.

The fourth binder is a Martha Stewart binder I picked up at Staples and I don't use it but love the color!

And then on the end if a photo album I tucked in also because I love turquoise/aqua!

On the other side of my computer is where I keep my 2 Filofaxes when I'm home.
So as you can see, not really a leaning tower of planners but I do have several planners on my desk.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Working on making dividers for my purple Filofax and should get it all put together this weekend
and start using it!
For more inspiration, be sure to head over to Planner Addicts on Facebook.
Have a great weekend!

Day 13 & 14 Planners Addict Challenge

Back today to share day 13 and 14 for the planner addict challenge.
I wasn't able to participate in Day 12 which is Month at a Glance as my planner
isn't set up with a month snapshot.

Day 13: Selfie with planner.
The red Filofax is the one I carry in my purse and it's a Luxe pocket size planner.
My newest planner is purple and it's saffiano personal size planner.
Day 14: Stuffed Full
My planner does hold a lot of information for me and while
I don't feel it's stuffed, it appears stuffed.
I love with my owl pen,

Day 11 Planners Addict Challenge - Sections

I'm a little behind in sharing my Filofax for the photo-a-day challenge.
Today it's Day 11 - Sections.
Sections can be whatever you want them to be.
Remember in school when you had the subject notebooks and they were
separated by each subject. Well, this is the grown up version of that
and you can add whatever you want your sections to be.
Let me show you a few of my sections.
I've shared a few of my calendar pages, and that's the first section in my Filofax.
My dividers are made from the Heidi Swapp Sugar Chic collection.

One of my sections is "Books to Read", how many times have you heard about a book you want to read, I've got the perfect spot to jot the name down for later referencing.

I also have a section for notes, to do and CTMH.
Having a Filofax aka planner is a great way to keep track of
those everyday things in one compact place.
Thanks for stopping by today!
Wishing you all a great Saturday.

Day 10 Planner Addicts Challenge - Lists

I'm a little behind in sharing my photos each day for the challenge sponsored by Toni from ABFOL.
Today it's time to show Day 10 - Lists.
In my pocket Filofax I have a section that I'll be moving over to my pocket Filofax this weekend.
Does anyone keep lists? I find that lists are a great way to keep track of what you have and also what you need or want, or projects to do. I also keep lists for other items, such as a grocery list, which I'm not going to share today.

For this page, you're probably wondering what this means, it's a list of the copic marker colors that I'd like to get and when I'm out shopping, I can quickly look to make sure I don't buy a duplicate one. These markers cost $4 - $6 each depending where I'm shopping and can be a costly mistake.

This is my list of favorite songs this summer. The plan is to make a Smash page of this very soon.
No reason why I used different colors other than I thought it was fun!

I also put together a list of Smash ideas that I thought would be fun.
It's been a few weeks since I worked on my Smash books,
would you believe I now have 3 of them now?
One is about our puppy, Coco, one is about me and the other one is a surprise!
Anyway, I got off topic.
Thanks for stopping by!
Wishing you all a wonderful day!

Day 9 Planner Addicts Challenge - Favorite Essential

Today for Day 9 for the Planner Addicts Challenge.
 My pick for the favorite essential are my storage items.
I thought I'd share how I organize all my stickers, post it notes, pens, washi...the list continues to grow and it can quickly get very messy.

One of my big splurges was this pocket pouch from Mochi Things.

At $30.95, it is very pricey but they have sales all the time and I'd recommend this for easy
and fast transporting.

I think this pouch could be used for other things too, perhaps makeup or a first aid kit.

While I spent a lot of money on the pouch, I found these plastic accordion envelopes that I store
my stickers in. I paid $1 for each one and they hold the stickers perfectly plus it's easy to find what
I'm looking for.

The hot pink accordion file holds the post it note pads and most of the post it notes
are $1 each. This planning addiction can become expensive but there are so many
great things available, be sure to check out the dollar bins at Target.
Thanks for stopping by!

Day 6 - 8 of the Planner Addicts Challenge

Today I'm sharing day 6 - 8 day of the photo a day for the challenge sponsored by Planner Addicts on FB.
Day 6 On the Go: I carry my Filofax in my purse everywhere I go. On my way to work I pulled it out of my purse and snapped this picture while at a traffic light. I don't know if anyone saw me taking this picture but I thought it was funny!

Day 7 My workspace: I spend most of my Saturday cleaning and reorganizing my craft room and I
am so happy how it's coming together. I hope to get the room completely finished this coming weekend and will share my space as soon as possible!

Day 8 Stickers: So I gathered my Filofax stickers and headed outside to our deck and my hubby is looking at me (doesn't say anything) so I say - don't ask! And I start to pull out my sticker collection
and set them out all pretty to share.
And I started snapping pictures of my stickers, my qualification for stickers to be bought - they must be cute! Don't you just love that little deer and bunny?

I can't remember where I got the black and white people stickers but they are adorable.
Right now I can't imagine using them. Yes, I am a hoarder!

Many of my stickers and post it note sets come from Amazon, this set is called
Hello! Coco Sticky book.
These are all post it notes and super cute!

I love to get post it notes that come in a set, this little set is called Say Hello!
I found this cute office type post it note kit in TJ Maxx!
Love that typewriter and the pencils with all the different colors.
My last stickers that I'll share today (yes, I have more but I don't want to
share how much of a hoarder I am) are these cute Asian girl stickers.
I know there's an official name for them but I need to get going
and get some things done before heading to work.
So that's a glimpse of my stickers.
Are you a part of the Filofax/planner craze?
Please leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you!
Have a wonderful day and thanks for taking time out of your day to stop by!
