Hey planner friends! Today I wanted to share a few of my tips for getting the most for your planner money, and how to save money on planner supplies.
Now, I do want to say, I don’t like to perpetuate the need for shop owners to always have to have sales to get customers, but let’s be honest, we buy from our favorite shops with or without a coupon, right? Shop sales are a great way to try a new shop that you wouldn’t normally be able to. If you have a shop that you love, make an effort to buy whether they hold a sale or not, and use sales as a time to stock up on things you need.
Another way that you can get cash back on planner supply purchases is through Ebates. I love Ebates because they literally do cash back deals for everything, from Amazon to Michaels, to Etsy! All you do is go through the Ebates site and click on the place you are looking to shop from. Your Ebates account will be noted and you will receive cash back on purchases, the amount depends on what the percentage is for that retailer. You can also refer your friends to Ebates to earn some extra money.
The original collective sale was Planner Boss Collective, but there are several that run throughout the year. Here are a few you can check out-
I’m adding to this list as I find more, to submit your group sale, leave me a comment below and I’ll get it added to the list.
Don’t forget your coupon!
When shopping for Happy Planner and other supplies at Michaels, Hobby Lobby, or Joanns, be sure you grab the coupon for the week. All three stores typically have a 40-50% off one item coupon that comes out every single week!
DIY your planner
I have several tutorials on my site here, and over on my Youtube channel. DIY’ing things for your planner can be a great way to save money if you have things on hand. My Silhouette Portrait was probably one of my best planner investments, ever. I use it to make my own planner stickers, dividers, and more.
That is it, do you have any more tips for saving money on your planner supplies, or any questions? Leave them in the comments below!
