Planner Tool Kit

Years ago I bought my husbtoolbox frontand the black version of this craftsman tool kit for him to use for everyday tools. A few days ago I saw someone using the adorable pink one for their planner supplies and knew I had to have it. For around $13 I acquired the very handy, beautifully bright Craftsman Planner Kit. It easily fits my purple Day Timer, 4 Moleskine notebooks (waiting on their Postdori which is on the way), a medium size pencil case with lots of room to grow. I especially like the outside pockets which can hold lots of pens, pencils, highlighters and markers.

Grumpy Cat is a silly surprise for the grumpy hubs.

One of my obsessions is planning and anything related to binders, paper, markets, pens, stickers. How to arrange my binder and most importantly which binder should I use??? I am considering a pretty binder cover from woodlandcottagefarm on esty.com If the three-ring binder works out I might have to buy this cover.

I follow a few groups and everyone throws around names like Franklin Covey, Kate Spade, Filofax…. I have some of these planners but it’s not because of the name, I think. I have very specific wants when it comes to my planner and when my life situations change, so does my planner. Do I consider the adorable Kate Spade because it is a Kate Spade or do I really love it?

Shana from Simplified Organized Style speaks to my own heart when she talks about the affliction known as Planneritis in her post, Perfect Planner Does Not Mean Perfect Plans . You know when you are obsessed with finding the perfect planner knowing that the perfect planner will bring you the perfect life, right? We know life doesn’t really work this way but deep down inside I feel a spark of hope that the more perfect my planner the better my plans will be and I will be more likely to follow my plans. Do you agree?
