Happy Stationery Day 2021!
If like me, you love stationery, then, SMILE as this is your special day today!
As a child, August was my favourite time of year, as it meant my mum would be getting all our school uniform and equipment ready for the September start.
Alongside the new school shoes etc… my main concern would be my school pencil case and stationery – who doesn’t to get a love of a fresh stationery haul?
As an adult, I’m very much the same, but with 2 major changes;
- I don’t have school – so stationery buying is a year-around activity
- I have my own money – so don’t have to demonstrate some self-control on the year-around stationery buying!
So, I have compiled a list of my new favourite stationery items, as if I did them all, it would be way too long!
THE POSITIVE PLANNER
As a productivity nerd, it would be hard to start my list without a planner, journal or diary, but after the year we’ve all had, we could do with a little more self-care.
So let me introduce you to The Positive Planner – which is more than just a planner for staying organised, but also has sections to keep us motivated, sane and in touch with our feelings.
This planner is so good for organising the various parts of your life whilst staying on top of your emotions and self-care intentions.
Above (pictured) is the planner, but there is a range of comprising of a Gratitude Journal and Bullet Journal and more resources.
They even put on events and the company are great at making products that assist in looking after our mental health and wellbeing.
I hope to be reviewing one very soon, but in the meantime, you can check out their full range on their website.
