Please note I received samples of some of these items in order to facilitate writing this review. My opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way. I only bring you things I love.
I chronically don’t drink enough water. I fill a water bottle, put it on my desk and then get so busy the day flies by around me. I’m a visual person so I was looking for way to track my water consumption that would stare me in the face. I found these adorable printable stickers from Farye Plans on Etsy. Each sheet contains 150 stickers that you print yourself. I cut them out and put them into a small plastic pouch and tucked it into the back of my planner. I attach a sticker to each day of the week and fill it in as I hydrate. I already have my planner open on my desk so this doesn’t add any clutter to my workspace. Farye Plans has lots of other useful printables too! Check them out and use code JOYFULORGANIZING for 15% off!
Busy Bee Shop
The Busy Bee Shop has some awesome planner stickers…she has a vast assortment of honeycombs in a rainbow of colors and small bubbles to write down anything you need to remember. These are useful to make notes for all of those small items you can’t forget…like picking the kids up from school or remembering to return your rented movies. However, my favorites are her specialty stickers.
The alarm clock stickers are perfect to help you plan your wake up times for the week. I love doing this so I understand my sleep schedule and so I can plan accordingly.
The coffee stickers are my FAVORITES. They are perfect for a coffee date or, if you’re self employed like I am, for days you want to go work at the coffee shop. If you love coffee as much as I do, you’ll want to put them on every single day of the week!
Busy Bee’s inspirational quotes are just plain fun. Give yourself a pep talk every day. They are adorable and quite honestly, can add whimsy even to a Monday morning.
I’m warning you now, you’re going to get a little lost in Plannertopia’s store and I mean in a good way. It’s a place where you’ll find something you want at ever click of your mouse. While they have amazing practical items, they also have some of the only motivational and inspirational planner specific stickers I’d found. If you’re looking for motivation Plannertopia has some awesome motivational stickers. They offer multiple sets but these are my favorites. I love that you can write on them if you want, however, you could also reposition them! ALL of Plannertopia’s stickers are able to be repositioned. You can keep track of lots of things with these custom stickers; daily hydration, school work, shopping, and lots more. I also love the blank colored boxes. They fit perfectly in the Erin Condren planner and allow you to make notes, reminders, and even doodles that stand out from the rest of the page. These colors are my favorites….pretty and soothing at the same time.
I’m so excited for this giveaway….you can win a prize package of Plannertopia stickers…this has everything from whimsical stickers to hydration trackers to motivational mantras. This is one you don’t want to miss. Hurry, you only have a week to win!
Twice As Nice Lettering
Twice As Nice Lettering is what you need to make sure you get everything done. Their planner stickers are specific and they allow you to visually represent your to do list. When keeping a lengthy to do list (and aren’t all of our to do lists long?), it’s easy to lose things in the shuffle. Lots of writing makes your planner appear cluttered and doesn’t allow you to pick something out easily and quickly. Twice As Nice stickers allow you to do just that. Their stickers range from mini shopping carts to crockpots to weights. There’s a visual representation for just about anything you need to tackle. I love using these to help me plan out my week and to hold myself accountable. If I put a sneaker on the calendar, I’d better go out for a run! You can use these stickers anyway you’d like. You’ll be more organized and your planner will be the cutest around.
If you’re looking for variety, check out Polished Patterns. Their Etsy store has SO many options you will get carried away…and when you do, you’re going to get super organized. Her stickers are not only functional, they are beautiful and feel and look amazing on your planner. They come in both glossy and matte options too! Some of my favorite from Polished Patterns:
This week checklist-This is perfect for everything you want to accomplish in a week. These are great for meal planning, workouts, or pick up plans. They fit into the side bar of your planner and can easily be written on.
I also love the versatility of the checklist series of stickers. Available in hydration (water drops), circles, stars, and hearts, they can help you count anything. I suggest using them to count miles walked, vitamins taken, or phone calls returned. The options are endless and the best part is that they are so petite, they still allow you to use the rest of the space in your planner for that particular day.
These blank boxes are a lifesaver. If you’re like me, you have a lengthy to do list. Sometimes things fall between the cracks and it’s difficult to make sure the important things get done. Use these stickers to highlight those critical tasks by making sure they stand out on your planner. These are also great on lists, for kids, and wall calendars.
