Can you believe we are 5 months into the year already #wheredidthetimego?
As I am almost halfway through my 3rd Hello Time Planner I was wondering if I could make it even easier to use, are there any tools out there that would make planning my time more efficient or fun?
So, over the past 5 months, I’ve been on the look-out for some useful gadgets, cool finds and smart accessories for my Hello Time Planner.
Things to make scheduling my time easier, to help me find what I’m looking for in my planner quicker, a way to highlight sections and so on.
So, I thought as it’s National Stationery Week, there is no better time to share my finds with you posting an idea every day for a week on our @hellotimeplanner Instagram & Facebook pages.
If you’ve not had the chance to catch them, I’ve created a round-up of my favourite five ideas with details of where to buy.
Please note that I have not been sponsored to mention these products and ideas, they are just as you find them – nice ideas.
What we'll be covering
DAY 1 – GOT YOUR NUMBER
First up and Monday’s find are these super cool brass number paperclips from design legend Ton Dixon.
Numbered 0-9 we bought these from his store in Bicester Village, but you can also purchase from Amara Living, Wallpaper Mag Store, Liberty London & Selfridges.
We love the retro font styling and the detailed laser-cut pattern on each one.
I use them to identify the day of the week or a special day in my calendar, such as my hubby’s birthday or our wedding anniversary, bless!

DAY 2 – POM, POM, POM
Tuesday’s DIY offering are these cute Pom Pom, page markers. A little project for all you creative bods out there.
I love pom poms & tassels (who doesn’t) so I jumped at the challenge when I found these beautifully coloured woollen beauties in my favourite shop in Leamington Spa, Berylune. I bought the black elastic on eBay.
Watch the video below, I’ll show you how to make them in minutes. I can’t wait to see your creations.

DAY 3 – PENCIL IT IN
Wednesday gadget is this smart Alice Scott brass & leather pen/pencil clip. We bought it at John Lewis.
I love the minimalist tab that neatly keeps your favourite pen to hand at all times when that light bulb moment lands.
Sketch, journal, scribble, plan & schedule at a moment’s notice.

DAY 4 – SWAG BAG
Thursday’s accessory is a keeper, graphic cloth bag, a perfect fit for your Hello Time Planner.
So many people have asked me where I got this. It was on my last trip to see my Brother in Leamington Spa. Bought from Berylune.
It keeps my planner clean and protects it when I am travelling.
