Craft Sales

I love a good bargain and most of my planners have been bought of sale. I look around on the internet at some different sites. I have ordered from these sites and have not had any problems. I make  my own dividers from scrapbooking card and laminate them. These are a few things I have my eye on!

WHSmith

I always have a look at Filofax and stationary on this site. It’s a Filofax Original A5 Organiser Patent Purple Leather Was £80 now £40.

An Organized Space

I was on eBay UK sometime ago and found this amazing desk! I wanted something that was not to big for my space available and also something that could help me be a bit more organized in this area. I have confessed many times (as a would be writer) but I’m also a planner girl, like making my own stationery items for my planners and crafts. So storage was a must and the shelves help me arrange my most needed items close by so I can have some space to work on the desk.

  I love this wall organization from Pottery Barn!

This is a great idea! I would set it up, a little different and instead of 2 monthly calendars :

A whiteboard (for a today list of important items on my to do list)

I would have the letter rack lower (top Left) and have a post coming in and letters that needed posting (to remind myself as I do not post many items now)

I like the pin-board(top left) a you could use this for invitations and special items you would to display.

Writing bureau with a drop leaf

I am going to upcycle my bureau, I have bought some new knobs with letters on them.

S =Stationary, M=Mail, & (x 2), J= Junk and Spelt Cabinet with a k as it is our surname to add a little personal touch.  I will post a picture of the finished Bureau. (My youngest son pointed out it’s also our initials for our names)

Make your office area, your own with things you love, don’t forget personal style but most of all storage for all your office needs. If you need some inspiration, remember Pinterest for some ideas.

Have a great day organizing!

 

 

Paper, Book & Inkwell

This Blog is for all my love of planning! I can’t do without my planners, I have many sizes and brands. I have #Filofax, #WebsterPages,#Paperchase and a few more. I love being organized with my planners and binders. I have a few #HappyPlanners I made into planners for certain things, I want to keep track of a Household Planner, Beauty Planner and a #HappyPlanner  for using when I am researching and shopping on the internet. The problem with me is I want to be a writer and us writers (well me!) I like paper & pens! My stationery and craft supplies were everywhere until I organized into binders and storage boxes. I put information into my #Happy planners, #Filofaxes, I feel so less stressed! I know many like to have everything in one place but for me, it works better to have things separate.  I still need to sort out my filing cabinet but as I am reorganizing my bedroom at the moment.

I was going to start decorating but when I thought about it, my bedroom is so disorganized and wanted everything in its place. I will start decorating next spring, I’m doing everything on a budget.  I have been sorting things out and instead of buying new, I have been doing crafts, I covered these boxes. I have Still got a lot to do but I am getting there? The next thing I want to do is sort out getting some #Elfashelving which will be the main spend for me, I found a great desk off of #Ebay I will share that in my next post. So when doing anything like this plan! It can save you money and you can get crafty too. Happy Planning!
