|Top 3 stationery favorites starting from|
Number 3: Files
|My Power Productivity Program folder (find out more about the program here http://www.alejandra.tv)|
that also contains magazine articles etc that inspire me to stay organized!
I have always been and always will be a "FILER".
When I don't have papers in a file it stresses me out.
My favorite folder that I can find in Japan at the moment is the Muji one above.
I like it because the rings are not attached to the spine, which makes opening and moving the papers around much easier....if that makes sense...
I have also started filing my "point cards"(Japanese "alphabet" order) in a business card holder. This one holds up to 60 cards.
I got this idea from:
Number 2: sticky notes and tabs
|Sticky notes for to-do-lists and tabs for notebooks and files!|
Before we get to Number 1...here's an honorable mention:
Last year I started using the Franklin Planner Organizer 2012.4~
I couldn't find a cover that I liked from the same company so I am using one from Ashford.
It has pockets in the front and back that store extra business cards (that I store in a mini ziplock bag so they don't get cruddy), a mini notebook (Moleskine) my favorite tabs from Avery and other sticky notes like the Green Marker (they look like grass blades)!
Number 1: Bags of all sorts! (Mostly Ziplock type bags)
the above bag holds the following office supplies that I carry with me mostly when I am working
|stamps, tabs, pens, Muji case that holds paper clips and staples (underneath that is y Muji portable stapler)|
a red ink pad, my date stamp, my name stamp, a ruler I received from a friend, mini cards and post cards, glue tape
Now, for what I am looking forward to using this year!
Last year I went through so many different kinds of notebooks that it got soooo confusing.
(for work and studying I still like the Cornell style notebooks but I am mixing things up a bit now.)
I am going to use the Moleskine Star Wars edition for my private journal and a regular Moleskine for my private notes.
In the back pocket of my Moleskine notebook I have some sticky note tabs. I made a cover with a small greeting card for extra protection...I'm a bit obsessive in that way!

It doesn't matter where you live and what brand you use...but it is a nice thing, I think, to stay organized and feel less stressed. I hope the year 2013 is filled with fun projects and joyful journal entries for all of us! May the force be with you!!!
