The new year is a time to set goals, and stick to them. There's no better way to start out the year than being organized. There are so many great tools out there, and it’s important that whatever you choose is something you'll actually want to keep using through out the year. That's why I've created a round up of the best organization accessories that are both functional and pretty.
If you're anything like me, you need a visual. I love this desktop weekly planner so I can keep myself on track through out the day. I use my icalendar as my main source of scheduling, but there's nothing like keeping your top priorities on paper. This way it's always right in front of me. I plan out the majority of my office time a week in advance. Being a business owner I wear many hats, so I like to delegate certain days of the week to accounting, social media, and of course actual design time.
How adorable are these pencils? I could see any of these patterns on a cute throw pillow (or maybe even wallpaper!) and that makes me want to use them that much more. I love a good old school pencil.
I currently use the Blush Mini 3 Ring Binder, but I’m making the switch the new leather one for the new year! I love size of these, they easily fit in my tote. The organizational inserts that you can purchase to go with them make them super customizable. I use my planner insert along with a mini notebook so I always have paper handy to take notes. Whenever I get a new binder, I typically can use the other one for something else- just by purchasing a few new inserts. I currently have three Mini 3 Ring Binders. I use one for my daily/monthly planner, one for business cards, and the other for wedding planning. If you purchase in store, they also offer free engraving services. Last time I checked, they weren’t offering engraving for online orders. One downside to these planners is that they don’t work well if you want to add full size papers with standard hole punches.
I hope you love these tools to stay organized this year. Let us know your tips and tricks to a productive and organized year, in the comments below!
