Messy Haul Planning Shopping

Messy Haul: Craft Supplies Haul from Daiso and Gaisano Mall

Craft Supplies Davao

Sooo… aside from getting into makeup (here’s my drugstore makeup haul!), I’m also getting into crafting now!

I’m not into all forms of crafting (yet), just creative planning since I’ve always used planners so I’m basically just levelling it up. And wadda you know? It can be very addictive!

As you may know, I operate on a limited budget so bargain finds are a must! I am not claiming to have an extensive smorgasbord of supplies — like what I said, I’m a beginner — and I don’t know the first thing about creative planning so basically I’m experimenting. Okay, more like groping in the dark. Haha! Seriously, though, the stuff I am about to show you are good enough for beginners like me but I’m sure crafting/creative planning experts know a lot more about the brands to buy and avoid.

Anyway, here we go! These are just some of the finds I added to my ~ hopefully ~ growing craft supplies. First up, my craft supplies haul from Daiso. I went into Daiso planning on just buying tissue and paper towels. I went out of the store with some craft supplies, a heart-shaped baking pan (not for crafting but too cute to pass up!) and, yeah, tissue and paper towels.

The Planner Dilemma

I am a little late to the planner game this year.

Scratch that: very late!

The truth is I wasn’t planning on buying a planner this year because my planner from last year is still good as new. This wasn’t the case during the previous years as I’ve been using planners since 2012. But because I barely used my 2015 planner, I thought that buying another planner this year would just be a waste of money.

Certified Positive Planner

This was my planner last year. I loved it but I was too busy to update it.

So what I did was buy a desktop calendar for the planning and a small leather notebook for my journaling. It  almost worked except that the calendar had too little space for all of my agenda and the notebook was a little bit cumbersome to use.

I guess it’s safe to say I’m covered for the year? 😁 #wahm #wahmlife #planner #journal #homeoffice

While I still love the pretty calendar and notebook to bits (the desktop calendar shall be a mainstay in my, well, desk while I converted my notebook into a devotional notebook, A Line A Day style), I later on admitted that I wanted a proper planner for 2016.
