I’ve been surprisingly strict with buying planner stickers since I started this hobby a few years ago, but the last month or so I kind of just let myself go wild and I don’t know if this is the start of something terrible or a one off but I guess we see lol. Either way, I love all the stickers and I have no regrets.

My First Weekly Sticker Spread! | Erin Condren Planner

 

 

This is something that I’ve wanted to do since I got my Erin Condren planner. A weekly sticker spread!

When I first got into the whole world of planning I discovered that some people like to do no whitespace sticker planning and I loved it. I thought it was so pretty and fun but I knew I could never afford to do it every week.

But I knew when I got my Erin Condren planner that I wanted to try it out, so I have been looking at weekly sticker kits a lot on Etsy and I have purchased some of them to use. I decided that I would use them for special occasions because it would make the week a lot more special.

There wasn’t anything particularly special about last week but I got my first weekly sticker kit from Etsy and decided to try it out.

I actually really love it. I think that they are perfect for someone like me who doesn’t fill all their boxes in their planner but wants to have something decorative. It just adds something more to the planner and it actually was the week I’ve been using the planner the most because of the checkboxes I added every day. I normally don’t do that much in a day and I was determined to fill those checklists with things.

So I guess it does make me more productive when you really think about it.

But yeah, like I said before as much as I would love to do this every single week I know I couldn’t, the reason being that sticker kits are expensive. I have already considered buying my own sticker printer etc to make my own if it would be cheaper but I think I’m getting ahead of myself as a newbie sticker planner lol.

So, for now, I think I will stick to buying stickers on Etsy but keeping weekly sticker spreads to a minimum (for now). If you have any advice on sticker making though, please let me know because it may be something I look into in the future. 🙂

My First Erin Condren Planner!

20190315_233013.jpg

After debating it for a while I decided to treat myself and get an Erin Condren planner!

I have wanted one of these ever since I first found the planning community on YouTube. But the price of them has always put me off. It’s expensive, and was I really going to use it once I got it?

That’s why for my first planner I decided to go a bit smaller and cheaper – a Kikki K planner. I found inserts that had the same size boxes as the Erin Condren so I could still buy stickers and used it as a trial run.

In the end, I actually really enjoyed using my Kikki K planner, it was super cute and it was great to keep track of things. And once I found that the inserts were running out, I did think about just buying more – but before I looked for new inserts I visited the Erin Condren site.

The fact that they were having a sale and I got my planner for half the price sealed the deal. It made up for the fact I did have to pay shipping costs (which is gross, because who likes to pay for shipping?). But aside from that, I was super excited to get my planner!

I have been using the planner for about a week now and it’s been fabulous before in my Kikki K I feel like I didn’t have enough space to always write things down but with the Erin Condren I have more than enough space. It also came with a ziplock bag and an inner pouch which is great for storing my stickers.

Of course, I would love to get stuck in making full sticker spreads and things like that now that I have the right planner for it but I still can’t justify the price of sticker kits. Sure it’s one thing to splash out money on a fancy planner that will last a year, but to spend £10 a week on a sheet of stickers that will be used in minutes? Eh…not so sure.

So I will stick with mostly writing things done but adding a sticker or two to make it slightly more decorative. But that being said I could very easily go sticker crazy lol I guess we see what happens over time.

But I’m really glad that I made the choice to get one so I could experience having one otherwise, I guess I would have wondered what it would be like. So now I have the experience I can decide if I want to continue with this planner or use another one in the future.

The price is definitely one of those things that is throwing me off ever buying another one. But they are so pretty and I think that the layout and quality are great, but the shipping costs are just too much. Like you have to pay $55 for the planner to begin with, so adding on the other costs it’s definitely way too much…but you can get them on Amazon, which I don’t know if you still have to pay customs but at least it would shave off the shipping price. Though they definitely don’t have the same range as the original website. So…yeah I guess I will have to decide if this is the planner I want to continue to use. But I have most of a year to think about it in the meantime, I think I will enjoy the planner as it is.

If you want to see my full unboxing and comparing it to my previous planner, a Kikki K filofax planner then check out the video below:

Planner and Etsy Sticker Haul!

After falling in love with the planner community and talking myself out of it numerous times, I finally decided to get my own planner! I thought it was the perfect time to get one as I head into my final year of university. And I was super excited to be able to finally get myself some pretty stickers!

Here’s hoping this makes me a little bit more organised or at least make it look like I am 😉
