Everyone who has ever met me for even an hour probably knows that I'm involved in a serious, lifelong love affair with office supplies. On most days, all it really takes to make me happy is a short wander through isles of post-it notes, sharpies, and washi tape. Last year, while watching youtube videos about clever ways to organize all my beautiful supplies (yes, that is really how I spend my days off), I came upon the wonderful world of alternative planners. Even though I use evernote with students, I live and die by my basic paper planner. I had been using the same type of planner for a decade and I hadn't considered the other options until that fateful day that youtube opened my eyes! Although there were so many wonderful options, like Passion Planners and Erin Condren Life Planners, I decided on the beautiful simplicity of the bullet journal.
