Hello there! Today I would like to share a simple set up of one of my work planner using Daisy Day Planner kit. I am in love with the peachy pink colour in the October kit so I decided to use a pink planner to go with it. And October is alsoBreast Cancer Awareness month, so I am all for PINK this month.
Some of the must haves when it comes to my day-to-day planning:
1- A 6-ring binders in A5 sized
2- Sticky notes and memo pad (from October kit)
3- Multi pens (Pilot Coleto, Zebra Prefill and UniStyle Fit, Muji)
4- Stickers (nothing fancy or decorative here, just mainly for colour coding or to draw my attention to the important dates)
5- Roller date stamps (from October kit oo)
6- Paper clips, page marker and binder clip as bookmarks
7- Planner Charms – I just swapped out the Today Charm from OCtober kit to this deer charm because I am a tad obsessed with deer recently.
I am keeping my work planner fairly simple as I am just using this to record work related to-do, daily expenses and also ideas for blog post, blog & video schedule etc. I just want it to be practical and simple, plus I am using a faux leather planner here as I do bring my planner when I go out and about. I do not want to ‘baby’ my work planner as it will be keep in my bag risk being scratched by other keys and pouches. I keep two pens – a black gel ink pen and a multi colour pens from Uni-Style Fit. Can’t live without colour pens, seriously. Then I also keep some sticky notes, basic stickers and paper clips on the cover. I didn’t overstuff this planner as I want to keep it compact and lightweight to bring out most of the time.
I also added a vellum pockets to hold some stickers and masking stickers that I use for color-coding. I only keep about 1/2 stack of the memo pad that came with October kit to reduce the bulk. I am in love with this month memo pad, pretty yet super roomy to jot down my notes and thoughts.
And this is the first dividers that I put my month on 2 pages, mainly putting down my blog and assignment schedule and some dates that I need to take note of for my social medias, such as videos, giveaways, blog hop, online classes etc.
I have already set up my monthly pages using my own inserts when I started using this binder. But you get the idea – page flags from Target is to mark the blog schedule and the neon dot stickers are reminder of my to-do. You could also download Cocoas Daisy planner printables here to set up your monthly section.
I also use the memo pad to write down my assignment deadlines by manufacturers / design teams. I like that the little dots on the memo pad could act as guideline for me write straighter 😉
I have also laminated the cover page of the October planner kit to make it sturdier (so sorry for the glare).
I love that the back of the OCtober cover page is an OCtober calendar that it comes in really handy when I am planning my weeks. I also added a grateful for tag (from Elle’s Studio) to write down things that I am grateful for, and will move the information to my Thankful Mini Album whenever I have time.
I group my weekly and daily pages by week – mainly to record daily to-do such as emails, calls, schedule, to-do and reminder.I put a piece of weekly page then follow by5-7 pieces of daily pages so I could look at weekly and daily at a glance.
I use a 3×4 Project Life card to use as my daily apge marker. I punched 3 holes with my Rakuten punch and stamp a monthly calandar with Waffle Flower Calendar stamp set.
The next tab will be my social medias tab – blog post contents and ideas will all be dumped into this section. Sometimes I will sit in front of my desk for 30 minutes, browsing Pinterest, blogs or Instagram then jot down ideas that I have for my assignments or social medias. I also print out information about blog hops or guest post in A5 sized paper to add under this tab.
Thenext tab will be my expenses tab: I added a vellum envelope to keep loose receipts before filing them.
I am using a vertical week-on-2-pages inserts from DIY Fish (Free printables, Yay!) to record my daily expenses. I am showing a blank page here as the previous pages are all filled up with my financial details.
I am keeping it fairly simple to keep up with my daily expenses – black pen for shop expenses and blue pen for personal expenses. Then I will total up the amount by grouping them into shop & personal by the end of the week. To be honest, I am never consistent in tracking my expenses and this format has been keeping me up-to-date so far.
The last section will be notes section. I take out pages from one of my Kikki.K journal and punch holes to slot into my planner. I also punch holes on the shipping tag that hold the sticky memo (from Daisy October kit) to use it as marker for the notes section.
This is just a very simple set up of work-related planner that I always bring it with me when I am out and about. I do have another work-related binder (much thicker and heavier) that stays on my work desk only. Do comment and let me know what are the planner-related blog post or how-tos that you would like to see in the future. And do remember to share your planner pages with us in our Planner gallery 😉
Thanks for dropping by and reading up on my long blog post. Have an awesome day ahead!
