What to do with your Stationery Collections
This week as I was going through my stationery, I realized I accumulated quite a
collection! I was getting ready to reorganize everything and placed it on my bed.
Like you, I love stickers, pens, sticky notes, highlighters, planners, and all things
While I have always loved stationery since I was a child, it was back in 2015 that I regained my love for planning and using my planners. I purchased stationery items from all kinds of different places that I could get my hands on. It was so much fun to mix and match different patterned washi tapes with stickers and sticky notes, (because yes, my washi tape just had to match the color scheme/theme I was going for). I dedicated so much time into making my weekly and monthly spreads look put together.
And, since I love stationery so much, I have separate collections within my stationery collection. Hello, we need options, and we can never have enough stationery stuff, right?
Let me explain – so, my main collection can be called a “stationery collection,” but within that I have a collection of my most used pens; a collection of stickers that include deco stickers, word transcript stickers, dots/drops/heart stickers; a collection of my favorite sticky notes (I keep my “special” ones separate from other sticky notes; a collection of planners (in different sizes); a collection of notebooks, a collection of washi tapes, notepads, page flags etc.
Sometimes I just like to go through the different items I have and see how beautiful they are. I truly appreciate each and every item I own. I especially love going through my sticker books to see all of the different kinds of stickers I have. (There are some that are just too cute to use, so I leave them in the sticker book).
When I was looking through my pen collection, I found some Hello Kitty ones dated from 1998! And yes, some of them still work lol. I keep these pens because it’s a bit of nostalgia and also because they are cute.
It’s also fun to take a look at the different ways that we plan in our planners. I enjoy going through IG to see how you use our products. I like to think that our products, like the sub boxes for example, are a collection of their own. They are special products that we have curated just for you. And, I also like how no two planners are ever alike because we each have our own different styles.
I know what you’re thinking, “do you even use all of the items you own?” – and yes, I do, well as much as I can anyway. There are days where its busy, and a notepad and pen suffice, but I like to make it pretty with a few stickers too. I try to use everything I have in different ways. For example, not only do I use stickers in my planner, I use them in notebooks too.
Tag us on IG with your stationery collections. We’d love to see them and feature them on our IG stories.
Until next time,
