Ultimate Planner Supplies List

Here it is! My Ultimate Planner Supplies List. I’ve been using a paper planner since I was a kiddo and decorating since 2015. Trust me – I’ve tried a lot of supplies over the years. Here are my favorites.

Basic pens

  • Paper Mate ball point pen: My go-to, black-ink planner pen! I love how smooth this writes. The ink is non-liquid so no smearing for my fellow lefties. Easy to hold.

Color pens

Fine Sharpies

  • Fine-Point Sharpies: Writes on most washi tape and some glossy stickers (see Slick writers for another option). I use this a lot when I’m turning washi tape into banners or label “stickers”.

Regular Sharpies

Metallic pens/sharpies

Slick writers

White ink pens



  • Fiskars 5 Inch Micro-Tip Scissors: Love how compact these are. Makes them easier to travel with. And the fine point tips make it easy for precise cutting for those adorable page banners and what not.
  • Gold Scissors: Let’s be real, I mostly like the way these look on display or in my planner photos for my blog, Instagram, or even YouTube videos.


Cutting slider

  • Fiskar’s Paper Trimmer (12-inch): This is great for cutting washi tape lengthwise or trimming scrapbook paper for straight-line cuts. Make sure you get a 12-inch size so you can cut most standard scrapbook paper.

Glue squares & strips / glue stick / tape

  • Tombow Repositionable Tape Runner: Use this for adding scrapbook paper or paper cut-outs to your planner, re-setting washi tape / stickers that have lost their stickiness, or glueing sticky notes down. I typically use this on key edges.
  • Elmer’s Repositionable Glue Stick: Same purpose as above. Except you can more easily cover non-straight shapes or entire areas.

Paper clips

  • Silverware stickers (pastel multi-color by It’s Planning Time: Love these for either meal planning or tracking dinner dates, etc.

Fitness tracking

  • Dance stickers (pastel multi-color) by It’s Planning Time: Great for tracking dance/hip hop/jazz funk classes – song notes could be great for instructors to track when they work on choreography


  • TV stickers (pastel multi-color) by It’s Planning Time: Great for tracking your favorite TV shows


  • Airplane icons (pastel multi-color) by It’s Planning Time
  • Car icons (pastel multi-color) by It’s Planning Time

Sticker Books

These books contain multiple pages of stickers in a variety of sizes, shapes, and themes. These are especially great when you’re first starting out. Or if you just love having lots of planner supplies and options.


Page flag sticky notes

  • Post-It Page Markers (Bright): I use these all the time for pre-planning as well as decorating. These are great for adding events and what not to your planner when they may need to move dates. Like scheduling dinner with your flaky friend.

Decorative sticky notes
