Hey there Lovies!! Guess who just went on her very first Big Happy Planner Shopping Haul? This girl! I went with my pal Kelly from KellySeeks.com to Hobby Lobby and Michael’s this weekend and boy did I get some great stuff BUT before you check out the Haul Videos I wanted to give you a few tips I learned on my very first Planner Shopping Spree.
Get ALL The Apps!
That’s right – all of them! You guys know I’m all about the Apps. They help me do everything from posting to editing yet I don’t know how I’ve been missing out on how they can help with the saving too! The morning of our shopping trip I went online to get an idea of what I wanted to get and noticed that the store Apps seemed to have Exclusive coupons – so of course I downloaded them!
Can I just tell you?!?! I received not only the weekly email subscribers 40% coupon codes but a few App Exclusive ones as well. Not to mention scanning your coupon from the App is way easier and takes a lot less time then trying to find one in an email. I mean you don’t wanna miss out on any savings – do you?
You Can REPurpose!
The other thing I learned this weekend about Planner Shopping is that you don’t always need to go for the Planner Brand products and accessories. There are quite a few things you can have for your planner that may not have started out as something for your planner. It’s All About The REPurpose!
Looking for the perfect Elastic Band to help keep your planner neat and closed?
Try a headband instead. It’s the exact same thing and costs way less especially if you check a store like Hobby Lobby or Michael’s!
Want those really cute and unique Paperclips with the fun ribbons on the end?
Grab a few small rolls of ribbons in the craft section (some as cheap as 25 cents!) and your hot glue gun and Make Your Own!
Kelly is chock full (is that how that saying goes? you know what I mean) of great tips just like this and I’ll be sharing them as I learn them! In the meantime, be sure to check out her Planners 101 Post to help get you started or excited – it will do both!
Know Your Options
Now I truly loved every single minute of roaming the Planner, Sticker and Pen aisles of Hobby Lobby and Michael’s BUT I also know my options. There were a few things I saw that I just knew I could find a bit cheaper. So as I stood there Kelly and I put our smartphones to good use checking and comparing prices on our Amazon App and guess who placed a few orders when she got home? THIS Girl!
