Planning :: My Top 7 Planning Must Haves

Today, I wanted to share with you all my top seven planning essentials. These are the items that I use in my everyday planning.

Here is a list of the seven staple items that I use:

1 :: A Craft Mat
It is great when you are cutting and pasting stuff. You can keep your craft table and planner
scratch proof too.  I have a big craft mat and I don't start my planning until I lay the mat for protection. 

2 :: Sticky Notes and Sticky Tabs
I use these all the time for extra notes, making lists and of course for decoration.

3 :: Hole Punch
This tiny little tool comes in handy when the washi tape overlaps the hole and you have to re-punch the pages.

4 :: Adhesive
The sticky notes and sticky tabs don't adhere well at times. Some sort of adhesive is always good to have on hand.

5 :: Pens
We all planner addicts love our pens and I am no exception. For my planning, I use only the pens I bought from Jetpens. These are the Pilot Frixion Erasable Pens 0.7mm, Pilot Frixion Erasable Markers, Pilot Frixion Erasable Ball Slim 0.38mm. Because these pens are all erasable, I don't worry if I make errors. Also they don't bleed. I love these pens! Specially the Pilot Frixion Erasable Markers and Pilot Frixion Erasable Ball Slim 0.38mm.

6 :: Scissors or Cutting Knife
I use small scissors or cutting knife mainly to cut the washi tapes to size. Sometimes I use scissors to cut horizontal sticky notes into a particular shape.

7 :: Washi Tape
Last but not least. My favourite accessory of all times. I am severely addicted to washi tapes. I use washi tapes in every single page of my planner decoration. Its official now, that I cannot plan without Washi Tapes ;D

You would have seen a lot of stickers in my decorated planner pages. Honestly, I can manage quite well without stickers. That is why stickers are not on the list. Here is an example of pages decorated without any stickers.

What are your planning must haves? I would love to hear from you.

Hope you enjoyed this post. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Have a wonderful day!
