How would you describe your planning style? Decorative? Fun? Minimal? Functional? I’m a minimalist and functional planner. I love trying new inserts and new shops, but I use a few “staple” items to plan that keep me organized and leveled. Here are 3 must-have products from Cloth & Paper that are staples in my planning style.

I love this notepad for its versatility. You can use it for anything: meal planning, schedule planning, habit tracker, etc. The possibilities are endless. I like to use the notepad to map out my month: priorities, meetings, and appointments. What you may not see on Instagram is me using the notepad to track my health journey!
I prefer the notepad to monthly inserts because I can post the sheet on my wall near my desk whereas the monthly insets stay in my planner.
These inserts are my favorite right now. I’ve used them every week for nearly one month. (Yes, that’s a record for me!)
I create to-do lists every week and spread out tasks throughout the week. You can use these inserts for your career, home life, or school. So far, I only use these inserts for weekly tasks to prepare content, complete projects, and prepare for meetings. In the future, I’d love to use these inserts for long-term house projects like spring/fall cleaning!
This insert is a game-changer. (It definitely was for me!) I can write down all of the tasks I want to complete during a period of time. But I then have to identify and organize the tasks based on whether they are a priority or not. I used to think that most, if not all, of the tasks I wrote down on a to-do list were important. But adding the tasks to the right side of the insert helps me to understand what tasks are truly important!
Everyone needs a little razzle dazzle every now and then.
I’m a minimalist and functional planner, but I love using neutral colors on my planner spreads and layouts. The transparent sticky notes are perfect for adding a small and understated pop of color! I use them to highlights meetings and important events on my daily and monthly layouts.
You can use these sticky notes for anything though: meal planning, workouts, or an affirmation.
Honorable mention: Uni Pin
I get questions all the time about the pen I use to write on transparent sticky notes that won’t smear.
It’s the Uni Pin!
It’s oil-based, which I assume works best on the transparent sticky note material. I use the 02 Pin (which is listed as having a .55mm felt tip). So if you like a finer point, try 01 (.49mm) when it’s restocked! Of course, the 03 Pin (.64mm) is for everyone who prefers a thicker nib!
