If there's one thing I learnt in 2012, it's that 'once a paper person, always a paper person'. I tried to take my planner digital at the beginning of the year and made it 6 months before I was itching to write my appointments on paper. Yes, there are advantages to a digital planner, the one thing I'll miss is the calendar syncing between my devices but it's probably pretty easy to keep my planner next to me all the time.
I was using an 18 month moleskine diary but a friend gave me a Kikki.k diary for christmas and I can't turn down cute graphics so I started using it. It's like a bit of sunshine in my day. I have a habit of sprucing things up so I added a pen holder from MochiThings and a Lamy pen, which I discovered last year and can't put down. I also try to keep other helpful things around, like sticky notes (I currently favour those from Kikki.k and Cloudy apple) and a mini self-inking stamp stack set from Paper market, although I've seen a similar stamp set at Daiso for much cheaper of course.
I would show you the inside of my schedule book, but my handwriting is atrocious but trust that it's being put to good use. Are there any things that are essential to your schedule kit?
