  1. I love how you have your purse organized. I’m a university student so I just tend to throw all my stuff in a big backpack, but that leads me to forget things if I move the essentials to my barely used purse for the weekend when I want to go out with friends. Probably time to permanently keep it in a purse.

    I started following people who post stuff about organizers. I wish I could afford such a nice one like the one you have displayed here, they all seem to be out of my price range.. I want to save up for a Malden (A5 or personal, not sure yet) from Filofax, but it’s hard to convince myself it’s worth the money. I bought a cheap $10 organizer from the store the other day to see if I’ll stick to planning things out. Maybe if it works I’ll treat myself Christmas time.

    1. To be honest, the price of the planner has no impact on how well it works to organize your life. They all work the same way no matter how much they cost. The most important thing is that you like it enough to want to use it. There are lovely leather binders like the Richmond which cost about $16. And my favorite at the moment is a pocket which I bought on sale for about $12. Good luck!

    I love that 5-year diary, and the Mulberry pouch, and the bag… 🙂
