Sisterhood of the traveling Planner Supplies

Sitting under a palm tree soaking up the sun having a little sippy sippy doesn't mean I don't want to play with my planning supplies. Traveling and vacationing to some means letting go of all the normal routine things you do you can just relax. For me, planning and sitting down to decorate my planner is relaxing. Its very therapeutic.

Since I am retired I can be gone anywhere from one week to almost 2 months. So I am going to share some packing solutions for when you travel and want to take planner supplies with you.

Short trip packing: Cosmetic bag
For the shorter trips I purchased a cosmetic bag that my planner fits perfectly in the zippered area and it has plastic material to keep it clean. There are several compartments within the bag that are perfect for stickers, stamps, washi tape and more.





All of it folds up nicely and has a handle. I found mine at Target. My local target doesn't have a large selection like some who grab the Orla Kiely cosmetic bags but there is some nicer ones I recently found by Sonja (don't remember the last name but it is by the makeup). Thirty one would also be a good place to shop for them and get some cute fabrics.

Extended trip packing:
If I am going to be gone a long time (more than a few weeks) I like to pack a lot of planning supplies because I cannot commit to what I may want to use as my theme. I bought a great plastic storage container at Walmart that has a locking lid so it is perfect for traveling. Its not too big to lug around from place to place or take outside when I am relaxing. I can fit loads of stickers, stamps, inks and even my planner in this container. Sometimes I even put my cosmetic bag that I mentioned above in there. FYI these also fit perfectly in a Ikea expedite cube storage I have at home.




A second extended option is the Grab N Go Rack system tote from joann Fabric. I have seen the same thing in a few crafty stores. Mine is the larger one so you could easily grab the smaller one cause it would still hold a lot. This is so nice, plenty of room for my planner and many other things in the top and 3 drawers with diverted to house all my stickers, washi tape, stamps and more.
