Happy Mail – The Planner Society & Thoughts on Subscriptions

I can’t believe I managed to wait so long to open it! During the last few days of February, I received my very first full kit subscription shipment from The Planner Society. I had to wait a couple days to open it and boy was I happy when I did. This kit is full of all sorts of things to help you decorate your planner – any planner! You can also use the contents to make dashboards, dividers, booklets, clips and anything you would like to give your planner a little style. There are papers, vellum, clips, notepads, stamps, die cuts and more. Stay tuned to my planner Instagram account @juliechatsplans to see what I make with the kit.

Watch the video to see all the little gems inside the box! The color scheme is to die for!

I had previously only subscribed to the sticker kit from TPS. Now that I received this awesome box of goodies, I’m kind of wishing I had all 4 subscriptions, the full kit, sticker kit, boxes sticker kit and washi kit. But I’m sure all manage, it’s probably just my FOMO (fear of missing out) talking. We’ll see how much time I have to craft with this this before I think about adding any more subscriptions to my list!

I recently canceled my Project Life Kit sub from Studio Calico. Now, I’d like to say that it’s solely because the kit doesn’t seem to be as great as it used to. But that wouldn’t be fair, since I have almost two years of kits in boxes, waiting for me to have time to use them. And I don’t think it’s right to judge without actually USING the product! I can say I got less and less excited to open the kits when they came, if that makes any sense.

Since opening my Etsy shop, I have been trying to cut back on expenses and concentrate on spending time and money gathering supplies I need for the plans I have for my shop. I really don’t want to, but I may end up canceling my Kelly Purkey kit sub too. I love Kelly’s kits and they always make me want to pull out photos and create with them, but then that darn time thing happens. Opening my own shop has taken so much time lately, that I don’t have time to make the things I really want to make. And, even though, I hate the thought of not supporting Kelly, buying things I don’t use is not a good use of my resources. We’ll see… I also have a monthly subscription to Big Picture Classes that I’m thinking of canceling. I signed up to take Cara Vincens’ course last year. It was fun! But I haven’t had time to create, much less take classes…this is what I was thinking when I saw that fellow Oregon Planner Society member, Haley Pettit, is going to be teaching a class for BPC. So I’ll hold on to my subscription, at least until I take Haley’s class, the March installment of BPC’s Plan It Out series.

Do you subscribe to any kits or membership sites? What do you think of them? Are they a good value? Let’s chat in the comments.

Thanks for stopping by!
