A few posts down, I talked about the things I want to get done this year. A big part of getting somewhere when it comes to this is accountability, and a way to be accountable, and stay accountable, is to keep a journal or planner. Every year I have one, but this time around I will push myself to keeping using and utilizing it. This is my 2017 planner, and sort-of set up. ๐Ÿ˜Š

img_3329So I start looking at planners around August, because that’s when the new designs come out. After a couple of months of looking at the different designs and layouts, I decided on this simple but adorable baby blue planner from Ban.do. After checking as I write this, the exact one I have isn’t available anymore, but this one has the same interior layout and an equally adorable cover, if not more. ๐Ÿ˜†

After getting the planner, I thought thatย it would be nice to have some consistent markers for some stuff, so I decided to go on Etsy to see what they have. I looked for quite a while and decided on stickers from these three sellers: itsplanningtime, twiceasnicelettering, and PrettyCraftyStickers. Aside from these though, I got heart stickers from Ban.do, and eye stickers (which don’t seem to be available anymore) and a sticker folderย from Ikea. These are what I got. ๐Ÿ˜Šimg_3328

First, from itsplanning time, got four sticker sheets. I got these dollar sign stickers to track my paychecks, these PC monitor stickers to track my blog, these pastel mail stickers to track shipments/mail I sent to other people, and these console remote stickers to track gaming sessions. ๐Ÿ˜† So from this seller I delved more into cute but functional stickers.img_3339

Next, from twiceasnicelettering, I got three sticker sheets. I got this sheet of washing machine stickers to track laundry, this sheet of popcorn stickers to track movies, and this sheet of really cute woodland critter stickers.ย Here, I got the stickers that are still functional and cute, and couldn’t resist the animal sheet.ย ๐Ÿ˜…img_3335

And last for Etsy, from PrettyCraftyStickers, I got three sticker sheets. I got this red droplet sticker sheet to track my period, and these perfect match date night and bunny love sheets because they’re adorable and also romance. I was looking for for just the right period stickers, and then I couldn’t resist the other two sheets. ๐Ÿ˜†img_3337

Last for the stickers, I got these from Ban.do and Ikea. Alongside the planner, from Ban.do I got these cute pale pinkย heart stickersย to mark romantic landmarks, and then I got this sticker bookletย with stickers to use as labels or to secure bits and pieces to the planner, and this sheet of quirky eye stickers that really fascinated me.ย ๐Ÿ˜†img_3331img_3332
Lastly, because I have this quirk about me that prefers that my writing materials are consistent throughout, I went over to Amazon and got this pack of five Pilot G-Tec-C4 in assorted colors. I’ve loved these pens for a long time and finally got my hands on a bunch of colors. They write really smoothly and neatly which is why they are a favorite.ย ๐Ÿ˜Šimg_3342

Those are the things I got together to hopefully keep me organized this year. This is how I use them. Each ink corresponds to a certain thing I write down (e.g. green for money related things and red for scheduled tasks/appointments), andย wherever I can use stickers, I do. ๐Ÿ˜„

Then everyday I use the bottom to write down a summary of the day, and whenever I have random bits that I want as keepsakes, I just use tape or stickers to adhere them to their corresponding day. ๐Ÿ˜Š

So that’s my setup. This way I’m able to keep track of the past, present, and future. It’s nowhere near perfect, but for this year, I think it should work out. I wanna look into bullet journalism, but I want to make the use of what I have now. So yeah, how do you plan to keep track of your resolutions and days? And also, what do you think of bullet journals and do you think I should try it out? That’s it for me for now.ย ๐Ÿ˜„

โ€™til next time,
