Inexpensive Container Store Planner Finds

I was excited when I first discovered The Container Store, but I wasn’t excited about the prices. While I love organization and all sorts of containers, there were cheaper alternatives to what the store was selling. The closest one to me was nearly an hour away, but recently one opened that’s just 20 minutes away. The store layout is amazing, categorized (as it should be), and there’s some inexpensive finds that are worth looking into. Check out my inexpensive planner favs below!

Bedroom Revamp | Nightstand Reorganization

Welcome to another edition of my bedroom revamp series. The first installment was my dresser trash to treasure. We come across pieces that are inexpensive at the time, yet break down, but there’s no sense in throwing it away if you can make it work. I revamped my dresser and made it work for me since I don’t have a budget to buy a new one. Click HERE to read more on that revamp.

In this edition I’ll be sharing how I reorganized an old nightstand. Keep reading for my top organization tips.

Plan With Me: February 2016

It’s FEBRUARY! January is over and my anniversary month has arrived. I wanted to have fun with this layout and play with the washi that I had along with stickers from the Target One Spot. Despite wanting to make the spread pretty, I wanted to  find a balance between decorative and functional.

First up I grabbed my January spread so that it’d be easier for me to mark my bills. I wasn’t a fan of my January spread and when I’m not a fan I don’t use it. The only thing I added were my gas trackers. I usually just put bills, birthdays, and when I’m babysitting in my monthly spread. Adding decorative stickers can easily overcrowd the calendar.

I had a lot of fun placing the stickers and due to the way that my bills fell this month, I tried something different in my sidebar. I go to the chiropractor on a weekly basis and I marked my appointments in the sidebar opposed to the month view. The wadi was fun to play with and I added just about all the Valentine washi that I had. Aside from washi tapes, I used washi samples from Heidi Swapp that I can’t wait to continue to use throughout the month.

The newest addition to this spread was a card. I had received it in a planner swap and I had recently just opened the set when I created my spread for the week of January 25th-31st. I took the card and I added an Erin Condren quote sticker along with stickers from a Heid Swapp sheet. Sometimes when you don’t plan you get great results and I just placed the stickers without much thought. Thankfully it worked.

I also decorated my divider as usual, which I’m not a huge fan of. I didn’t have scrapbook paper to match for the month so I used photo paper. It didn’t adhere all that well, but I’ll leave it as is. I did decorate my ‘This Month Currently’ sheet which I will use to mark goals of the month and as they’re completed I’ll put a heart next to them. I love the way it turned out and I’ll definitely be decorating from now on.
