Budget Conscious Journaling And Planning

As I disclosed in my previous post, I am not that rich but digital planning and journaling can be costly. Kits, templates, pre-made journals and stickers can cost a lot of money and rightly so because they are very time consuming as well as being oh so gorgeous. I am lucky enough to have a flair for graphic design so I make the majority of my materials myself and if I can’t make it, I find an alternative.

I recently purchased my first lot of materials from Etsy, digital binder rings from Jenny Gollan, a Sydney based artist. I felt so good, I finally was helping a designer instead of imitating. I definitely feel very bad that I have to make nearly everything that I don’t have the money to buy. I know it’s wrong to take ideas from other people but I love the digital craze and I want to keep up with the Jones’.

My monthly, weekly and daily planners are nothing special, they are extremely bland compared to the spreads I see on social media. I use black and white because let’s face it, it goes with everything and I can use any colour I want to type with as well as use decorations of any colour.

Here is a short list of YouTube channels that I learn techniques from:

Everyday Awesome TV

The Mom Behind The Computer

Boho Berry

Life Is Messy And Brilliant

Jenny Gollan Designs

All these channels use different apps and I hope to touch on some of my personal favourites in a future post.
