The Geek In Me

By Heather

There are a few things that totally geek me out. And most of them revolve around office supplies. I can spend hours in a supply store. Hours. I never minded school shopping for the kids, and when I need printer paper or ink, I’m more than happy to toddle off to the store to buy some. And ten other things. Ooh, funky paperclips. Notebooks galore. And heaven help me, the pens. Oh, the pens.

But even more than pens (I know this is going to be hard to believe), I geek out over day planners. That’s right. I live and breathe by my planner. I’m still old-school, so I use a paper planner, not an electronic one. It’s the biggest tool that keeps my days organized and therefore keeps me sane (I'm all for sanity these days).

Because I use an academic day planner (July-July), this is the season for me to pick out a new one at my local Staples. Oh, the choices. Sometimes it comes down to eenie meenie miny moe to choose one, but this year I went by the inside pages. They have adorable flowers on them. 

This is the outside. Isn’t it cute (you can't tell by the pic, but the purple flowers are iridescent)?



What do you geek out over?
