Heya Aspiring Gurus!
I am sorry for skipping my July Favorites, but I didn’t really love anything that month and I was going to upload it. It became too late to do one, so I sincerely apologize to anyone that was looking forward to it. I decided to buy a planner to keep my hectic life organized, but I did not want to break the bank while doing so. Amazon is a great alternative from buying from the actual site. Their return policy is so much better ad they are faster for processing orders. Amazon gave me the shipping estimate as September 1 through the 19th, but after my order was process, they gave me the shipping estimate of August 11th to the 15th. I got the planner on August 13th by FedEx. They also offer free shipping, which you all know that shipping costs are my kryptonite. Am I spelling that right? Anyways, here is everything that I bought for a grand total of 52.19 USD.
Filofax 2015 A5 Organizer, Saffiano Raspberry, 39.94 USD
I absolutely love my Filofax! I know it is too early to rave about it, but I really love the look of it and the way the layout is. The leather is so plush like a little pillow. I love that it has pockets to slip little post-its in it or mini note pads and it even has a side pocket to slip a skinny notebook or larger items. The little pockets are supposed to be for credit cards, but I wouldn’t keep my cards with my Filofax. I like my wallet for that, plus it seems weird to keep them in there. I like that it came with a few surprises that wasn’t supposed to be in there like a 2014 spread, including 2015, and a 100 page notebook pad. I won’t go into detail online, but if you’re my friend, odds are that I will be showing you it.
Sharpie Pen Fine Point Pen, 4 Colored Pens, 4 USD
These were a really great buy at 1 USD a pen. The pack also came with a bonus neon orange Sharpie, which is always nice to get stuff for free. I bought these pens, because they do not bleed or smudge. It will be perfect for color coding my planner, these pens that is. The Sharpie would probably bleed through the pages. I always really loved these pens in high school and I am just now coming back to it. It was definitely an oldie but a goodie. I don’t ever really see these in stores anymore.
AllyDrew Colorful Lines Japanese Washi Masking Tape, set of 3, 5.50 USD
I bought the tape to decorate my planner and to symbolize certain events like vacation, holidays, and date nights. Plus, they are super cute and see through, so you can write over the tape or underneath in it. I like the versatility of using the tape.
So, that is everything that I bought! Have you hauled anything lately?
