Good morning and Happy Friday! After several months of talking about it, I am FINALLY getting to share my planner cart with you guys. The Ikea Raskog cart was originally purchased for my daughter to use in her closet for her books. Then, we moved and the home we purchased had a nice size closet in the playroom, so she didn’t need the cart anymore for books.
So, momma kinda snatched it up to use for herself.
I have gradually worked all summer getting the cart organized in the most beneficial way for me. When it isn’t being used, it sits behind my craft station (I will share that too when it is completely finished). Sometimes, I will do my planning at the kitchen table, so all I have to do is wheel my planner cart beside my chair and I have everything I need.
The first shelf of my planner cart contains 3 small bins (mint, white, and hot pink) that I purchased at the Target Dollar Spot for a dollar each.
The mint one contains all of my stamps.
The white one contains all of my May Designs books. I have a nice collection that is waiting for a good use.
The hot pink bin contains all of my list pads. Most of them came from Target.
In front of those bins, I have a clear acrylic organizer that I purchased from Target online. I couldn’t find it anymore (I have had it for awhile), but you can purchase it at Wal-Mart too and that link is at the bottom of this post.
On the sides of the top shelf, I have 3 Ikea Bygel cups. These cups can not be purchased at Ikea online, so I purchased them for a little more at Amazon. I got all 3 for around $8.00. I plan on purchasing another set because it is driving me nuts being off balanced with one on a side and two on the other.
One cup contains my Staedtler pens, another holds my thick markers, scissors, and hole punch, and the last one stores my wite-out runners and Elmer’s tape runners.
The second shelf holds a variety of items. The left white Target Dollar Spot bin holds my sticky notes and page flags.
In the middle Target Dollar Spot accordion files, I have all of my stickers organized by type or maker. I made sure to purchase different colors. I still have a few more to purchase, so if I am at Target and they have a new shade, I will pick another one or two up.
The last white bin on the right contains The Reset Girl photo albums, some random stickers that are waiting for an accordion file, and a small scrapbook paper pad. I plan to keep my smaller paper pads in my planner cart.
The last shelf contains my punch collection. I try to pick up one every month or two to add to my collection. I purchase most of them at Hobby Lobby when they are on sale. I use them weekly in my planner and in my #listersgottalist daily challenge prompts.
And, that is all for my Ikea Raskog planner cart. You may notice that my ink pads are not in the cart. After some asking around, I was told that ink should not be stored sideways and that is the only way the ArtBin container they are stored in would fit in the cart. So, my ink pads are in my craft station.
So, how do you store all of your planner supplies? I would love to hear all about it.
