The Planner Girl’s Guide to Black Friday

Hi everyone! Are you super excited for Black Friday this year? I’m super excited to buy way more planner things than I need! πŸ™ˆ I’m basically gonna share my wishlist with you guys, along with some other deals and general shopping tips. πŸ‘ I used to be into extreme couponing, and Black Friday gets me so excited! Even if I’m not planning to buy a lot of stuff… I just love a good deal!! πŸ’Έ

Before shopping, please make it a point to read and understand each store or website’s coupon policies that way you don’t feel disappointed or cheated if a coupon doesn’t work. On the other hand, if you know the policy, you can stand your ground politely if a store associate tries to decline your coupon. Just have the coupon policy on hand, stay calm, and PLEASE be nice to the sales associate. Even if they’re rude to you! Imagine how it feels to have to work in a chaotic environment like Black Friday!! You don’t know how early they had to wake up, how far they had to commute, what atrociously rude customers they had to deal with before you… These same employees might have had to miss Thanksgiving with their family because they had to work to keep their jobs! Remember what the holiday season is all about and try to spread some of this holiday cheer while you’re out shopping! It’s all about love, gratitude, kindness, etc.

Ahem… anyways…

Personally, I don’t plan to go into any stores on Black Friday. I’m going to do as much shopping online as possible because I don’t particularly enjoy going into stores on Black Friday. Too chaotic for me. πŸ˜… Amazon is my favorite and since I have Prime (which includes free shipping!!) I’m planning on making most of my purchases there. However… I did research other stores and sites because I’m all about finding the best deal out there!

I’ll go over some of the sales and deals that stood out to me from some of my favorite places to shop: Amazon, Silhouette America, Etsy, Michael’s, Jo-Ann Fabrics, Me & My Big Ideas (Happy Planner), and Erin Condren. I’ll update deals as they expire and as I discover new ones!

November 6-12 Weekly Spread

I just LOVE how this week turned out!! 😍 The colors and the artwork are just so fall-y and PERFECT! πŸ‚πŸ It’s finally starting to feel like fall here in Southern California! It isn’t 100 degrees every day anymore!! πŸ™Œ I was able to bust out my riding boots and best of all… my sweaters!!! 😍

If there’s one thing I love as much as… maybe even more than sweaters… it’s ponchos! My boyfriend always asks me why I’m wearing a blanket out of the house whenever I wear a poncho. πŸ˜‚ I mean… I guess they are kinda blanket-like. But that’s what makes them so awesome! That and scarves. Especially blanket scarves. 😍

Aaaaanyways. Back to my weekly spread. πŸ˜…

October 30- November 5 Weekly Spread

I can’t believe October is already over! It feels like my birthday month just started! πŸŽ‚πŸ’–

Anyways, Halloween is this week but that holiday is just okay so I’ll probably write in “Halloween” and I may or may not mark it with a sticker. I instead decided to focus on DΓ­a de los Muertos! If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a beautiful holiday that takes place over the course of a few days where we celebrate and honor the deceased.

Free Planner Printable: November

How is October almost already over?! Where did it go?! At any rate, fall is most definitely in the air.

Come on Fall, any time now!!! πŸπŸ‚πŸπŸ‚

Well, I guess I can just pretend it’s getting cooler, and nothing helps more than this warm and cozy color scheme in this week’s free printable. 😍 I even snuck a little bit of Hello Kitty and Molang in there. I just couldn’t help it! Everything is better with a little touch of kawaii! πŸ˜πŸ’– Continue reading “Free Planner Printable: November”

Washi Wednesday [10.11.17]

Hello, lovelies! Now that birthday/giveaway week is over, we’re going back right back to autumn/fall stuff! Because fall is the best, duh!! πŸ‚πŸπŸ‚πŸ

I found these washi tapes in a washi tube at Jo-Ann Fabrics! I haven’t been able to find a lot of fall-themed stuff at Michael’s, and to be perfectly honest I haven’t searched very hard at Hobby Lobby. So… when I saw this super adorable tube at Jo-Ann’s, I had to get it! These aren’t the only rolls that came in the tube… there are more! 😍 I just decided to save those for another photo shoot… like… maybe next week’s Washi Wednesday.
