Pens, Pencils, & Planners = Perfection

The obsession with office supplies is real

Just writing this article made me smile ear to ear thinking about all of the amazing office supplies I own. It also made me a little sad thinking about all of the office supplies I still haven't bought!!

Buying office supplies is the most relaxing and perfect thing you can do, I am sure of it.

I love when I find a new pen that writes smooth, a new pencil that glides perfectly, or a new planner that has all the good vibes flowing!

I hate to admit that I buy more than one planner a year, that sounds crazy when I think about it, but I can not be the only one that will stumble past a planner that is just slightly better than my current one for one or more reasons and I just have to have it. I spend an hour or so copying all of my important dates, birthdays, and info into the new planner. That being said- I think I finally hit the jackpot with the Erin Condren planner I got as a gift for Christmas, I may never switch again.

If I took all of the money I've spend on new pens, pencils, highlighters, and markers and invest it somewhere, I would be so well off. Instead I have a pencil bag in my purse, a container on my home desk, a huge container on my work desk, and plenty scattered around my car.

I've also developed a bad habit of liking a certain brand of pen or marker and having to have the newest ones when they release them. There is never a target trip that doesn't involve looking at the latest and greatest pens and such....... Now this being said, there really is a difference in pens, do not argue with me on this. A good pen and a great pen are totally different. It is all about the glide and slide in a pen, and when you find that pen you have to buy it in every color it comes in.

Does having this obsession mean I am the most organized and planned person ever? Well I would love for that to be true. I do love plans and having my appointments, to-dos, and birthdays planned out and planned for, but sometimes life gets a little messy.

Please tell me I am not the only person obsessed with pens, pencils, and planners?

A Trip To A Beautiful Red And White Mansion Called Target

The most magical place on earth besides Disney World.

Target. The most magical place on earth besides Disney World. I am not even exaggerating. Target is my go to store. I go there for groceries(only sometimes though because we all know Walmart and Food Lion is cheaper), health and beauty products, clothes, and most importantly random things. The little dollar section is my favorite. This beautiful red and white mansion has literally everything you could possibly need. Especially if it has a Starbucks as well!

When it comes to target I am always in the mood. It makes my life a little better. Sometimes I plan to go there ahead of time or it could be an impulse trip that was not planned. Those are the best. Now I am going to walk you through my typical target trip experience.

First parking.

I tend to try my best to park in the same area. Usually around the same parking spot near where you put the shopping carts outside. I take a huge sip from my water bottle before getting out of my car and into the adventure I am about to start. I never carry my pocketbook in. Just my keys, wallet, and phone. I don't need something hanging on my shoulder while I'm roaming the aisles.

The entrance.

As the big glass doors slide open I feel like a queen walking to her throne. Kinda. I grab a basket to carry for the planned or unplanned items that I will place in it. The dollar section is definitely the first spot I hit up. Depending on the month I will try to find the holiday socks that they have for almost every holiday. I currently have more than twenty pairs of the dollar holiday socks. This section is also great to find little notebooks, planners, notepads, pens, and other organizing essentials. Just the other day I found a planner, calendar, some pens, and a pair of socks and I felt like I had hit the jackpot. I really hit the jackpot even before December with the Christmas socks. I seriously bought ten different pairs for myself.


After finally spending too much time at the dollar section I make my way around the store. Depending on how I feel or if I am in a hurry I will go to multiple sections or just straight to what I came for. Mainly I browse through the clothes, sleepwear, and activewear first. I work my way towards the books and movies. But not before I take a look at the men's clothes as well. Their t-shirts are SO much better. It's not fair. Then, it's to the seasonal section. I love looking at all of the decorations or stuff for the seasons.

To the food area, I go. I love the food choices at Target. There isn't much in produce, just some basics but there is a lot of snacks choices, oatmeals, peanut butter, etc. It's great. After finding random somewhat healthy foods I go to home and decor. One day when I have my own home this will be my go to area. I like looking at all of the mugs and kitchen stuff while making notes in my mind that I would like those things in my future home. The throw pillows and blankets that will be in my bedroom and the little wall decor that will hang up on the walls. Wow, I daydream about target decor.

After, all of my roaming and self check-outing I decide whether or not I need Starbucks before I leave. Usually, the answer is yes! Of course! Even though, lately I have been trying to cut out getting coffee as much because of all the caffeine. Also, I have a lot of K-cups so I need to stop spending so much on coffee. Ha.


An hour and a half after arriving I am finally exiting the wonderful store happy and not ashamed of how much money I spent. It's unhealthy I know. But what can I say, I am a mom trapped in a nineteen-year-olds body I guess?
