Creating Your Own Everyday Carry Kit
Need a travel companion in lieu of your full planner? Of course you do! We have curated a guide on how to create your very own everyday carry kit for all of your planning needs on-the-go.
First, you will need a holder or pouch to hold all of your planning goodies. The Essentials Pouch | Large is perfect because it is transparent, so you can easily see your supplies, and it is the perfect size to hold travel-sized notebooks and planners. Our go-to notebook is the brand new CP Petite size, which will require a Cover, Discs, and note-taking Inserts. If you would like something that is already assembled when you receive it, the Pocket Plus size Everyday Carry Notebook is ideal!
Next, you will need reliable yet non bulky writing utensils. Choose the Zebra Sarasa Speedy as a main pen, as this pen is quick-drying for on-the-go use. If you need to keep a highlighter on you as well, the Monami Essenti Soft Highlighter is the perfect size, with a variety of pastel ink options. Add a memo/washi tape for both your tape needs and for covering errors. (We personally love the Yamato Clip Memo Tape also found right on the website).
We can’t forget the must-have accessories! Add your own signature style to your everyday carry accessories by choosing one color to match across your sticky notes and stickers. One luxe and beautiful color available for both the Note Neutrality Sticky Notes and Mini Shape Sticker Set is Verona.
Sometimes, small planners are not ideal for everyone! That is why we also have curated a kit for those that love to keep their larger planners on them, even while traveling.
One of our team members added the following items to their kit to go along with their Beginner Bundle planner:
Note Notepad | Refreshed Layout
Duo Sticky Notes | Blank + Graph
Ellipse Shape Stickers | Avant Garde
Transparent Page Flags | Le Blanc
Uni One Gel Pen | 0.38 mm | Black Barrel
We hope that you will create your very own everyday carry kit with these tips! Post your kit to the Cloth & Paper Insiders Group on Facebook with the hashtag #sharemyclothandpaper, or to Instagram using the hashtag #clothandpapertrail to possibly be featured on our socials!
