School Planner Essentials

Instagram has been quite the inspiration for our 2014 planners each of us have started using for the new year. If you haven't noticed, everyone who works at Cool Pencil Case is all about the details. With the long list of to-do's each day, tasks look much better with some kawaii tabs, convenient highlighters and pens to color code our lists, and stickers to liven up each plain ol' page. Check out some of our favorites below and get some tips on how to add some fun to your school planner as well!


1) School Planners: Though Cool Pencil Case has its share of 2014 planners, there  are a couple of planners available that allow you to write in the date yourself. So technically, you're able to start the year whenever you want. Hey -- it's never too late to get organized right?

2) Decoration Tape: We all have highlighters to draw attention to important notes or dates in our planners, but how about some decoration tape? It works just like correction tape, and dispenses super kawaii designs to highlight important notes on each page.  

3) Notebook Jackets: A select few of us at Cool Pencil Case are constantly losing our pens; which is completely understandable, since we're all constantly walking from the photography studio to our inventory area, etc. We've started to use notebook jackets, which is really convenient simply because we're able to keep our coveted pens in one place and with us. To attach the notebook jacket, simply slip it into your planner or notebook lengthwise.

4) Tabs: We like to go from the weekly planning pages to the note area, so it's obviously a pet peeve when we don't bookmark the last page we left off at. Luckily, we've got some help from our trusty notetabs.

5) We all need a trusty pen or mechanical pencil to match our planners. We suggest the Milky Mechanical Pencil if you want something simple to complement your school planner!
