Isn’t it funny how we can be about something so every day as pens and paper?
And by ‘we’ I totally mean me.
As much as I love my gadgets, I am a paper planner person. This year I had a Plum Paper Planner created. So many pages & sections! Love, love, love how I could customize it to fit me! months, weeks (I used the ME format – love the custom sections!), blog, fitness, sales and to-do. A pretty cover… Love it.
And the paper in it is a nice weight – not too thin, but not cardstock.
And this is where the pens come in…
I am a color-coder. Everything in my planner has a color…
Ireland Family Vacations is light blue
Family Rambling is orange
My kids are purple
Freelance is green (for money!)
Coaching is light green (also for money)
Sales of Thirty-one are pink
And I like my calendar writing to be BOLD. I want to see it jump out at me.
So, of course, I love Sharpies. But they bled through.
Local office supply stores didn’t have many options, so I purchased Paper Mate InkJoy . Which was nice, but just not the BOLD I was looking for. (these are not the drones you are looking for) Ahem…. anyway….
It was luck that placed me in a Facebook group of others like me – who love a great planner and the perfect pen. And there I found out about Paper Mate Flair . It’s BOLD. It’s colorful. And it doesn’t bleed through the paged of my planner!
Does anyone else feel this kind of joy at finding the perfect planner pen?
