I picked up a new calendar/planner at Paper Source on Monday (they're 50% off right now!) and a pack of LePens in a renewed attempt to get organized. I have tried this before with other calendars that I didn't like using and inevitably, reverted back to my "system" of post-it notes and to-do lists scattered all over my desk. Living in paper-strewn chaos is not ideal, obviously, so I'm hoping these pretty things will motivate me to stay on track with projects and be a little tidier too.
I have to admit, writing my first "to dos" yesterday was pretty satisfying and crossing them off even more so. (That little jotter is from Caren Barry; her Etsy shop is filled with all manner of pretty floral things, check it out!)
I also picked up some washi tape at IKEA on our last trip. We were there to buy some plant pots, a stool, and other practical things, but you know how cute things have a way of slipping into your cart. ;)
By the way, if anyone has any tips about getting organized, sticking to a schedule, or sorting out life in general, please feel free to leave me a comment. xo, Mary
