Day One: Don’t Want to Run Out
I feel so stupid about today’s challenge. I use sticky notes A LOT. So I buy a lot of them. I like to buy cute ones. But sometimes, I know that they’ll only be available for a limited time, and I don’t want to run out because I love them so much. so, I just hoard them.
But it doesn’t just end with sticky notes. I do it with a lot of other planner supplies, too. Like washi, pens/markers with a specific color or type of ink, scrapbook paper, page flags, etc.
It’s crazy, because I buy it with the intent of using it, but ultimately these things almost always find them in the Museum of Planner Stuff Too Cute to Use. 😂 It’s hard, but I’m really challenging myself to use this stuff instead of just hoarding it. I’ll ask myself “Which brings me more joy: using it, or hoarding it?” If I answer “hoarding it”, then uh, something is terribly wrong. 😂
Does anybody else do this with planner supplies? Share with me in the comments below, or join the conversation in our Facebook Group!
