School starts this week and while I'm not personally in school, I'm responsible for my son && Jess's schedules. The kiddo is in band and happens to be veryyy busy during the school year with it. Jess not only works 2 jobs, but is going back to school this semester. I tend to be the taxi for everyone, along with my own "household duties". I'm only 31, but my memory is crap. Fo real. I have to write everyyyything down. I love LOVE bullet journaling to keep my head on. I find that is the most productive way for me to complete everything && stay on task. This year I'm incorporating the Moleskine Turntable planner into my planning regimen. With regular bullet journaling in a plain notebook, I found I was spending too much time laying out everything on the page. The Turntable planner has everything setup, but in a veryyy close to bullet journaling layout. I'll show you how I do it once I get it all going.
I was stoked to find 4-packs of washi tape at Office Depot for 73 cents! I'll admit, when it comes to the planner world I'm not a HUGE washi user. I do like using washi to map out long events over several days. Plus, it's a fun way to add a little color. I also found a Le Pen stand at my local Books-A-Million. I wasn't aware we had these pens locally anywhere! I haaad to pick one up. My favorite pens to use for planning is the Pilot Frixion pens. They're erasable. Honest! Not like the crappy Paper-Mate erasable pens from the 90s that left crap all over the page. These legit erase everything cleanly. I grabbed Frixion highlighters while I was at it too.
Here's a little example I tried to put together for you guys of the erasing Frixion Pens ahah! I wrote "Hello" 3 times with the pink, purple, and light blue pens. Then I erased the middle. I also did the same with the highlighters. I hope it helps! <33

There's the washi's all out && pretty! These are a great quality too. I did some writing on them with my Le Pen and it wrote beautifully. No streaking && dried well onto the tape. NOTE: I usually use Paper-Mate Flair pens for my washi tape. They write beautifully & have the ink similar to a pointed Sharpie.
I can't wait to get started on my journal for this year. I'll do posts regularly showing you what I do && how I do it. I know that the planner community is huge and I want to contribute! <33
