Bookish Accessories for your Erin Condren, Filofax, or Day Designer Planners

Last year I realized that planning apps, while great for scheduling, weren’t helping me with bigger goals or daily tasks. I needed a digital-free space to reconnect regularly with not just what I was doing, but why.

I loved getting back into pen and paper, but after a few months of black pen on white planner pages, I dipped a toe into the “planner girl” world on YouTube. These women transform their planners with stickers, washi tape, flags, bookmarks, sticky notes, colored pens, dashboards, and handmade covers. The planners become objets d’art, journals, diaries, or family scrapbooks.

At first I couldn’t understand why someone would buy a perfectly attractive — and often pricey — planner and then cover the entire page (this is called “no white space planning”). But I learned that for some, it’s a hobby, for others a matter of creative expression, and for still others, “Plan With Me” videos or Etsy sticker shops turn planning into a small home-based business.

In case you’re not even sure what I mean by “planner”, I’m thinking Erin Condren Life Planner, Filofax, Day DesignerHappy Planner, and Plum Planner. All of these offer great functionality with great design.

I’m still at the “functional planner” end of the spectrum, as opposed to the “glam planner” end. Too much stuff distracts me. But I definitely appreciate a nice looking accessory. And as an avid reader, I especially love bookish planner accessories.

Ok, this is supposed to be a book clutch purse, but I think it would make an awesome (if way expensive) pen and pencil case:
