Pip Tip Tuesday & Grand Prize Planner Giveaway

If you’re like me, your handbag (or tote) contains at least three of the following in addition to the standard phone, wallet, keys combo:

  • dirty sock
  • half bottle of water
  • crumpled receipts
  • a remote control (to something)
  • ziplock with snack crumbs
  • a battery
  • a charger cord
  • napkins
    …you get the idea (and I literally just threw my son’s dirty sock at Jenna!).

Its because of this sort of chaos that I find particular solace and joy in a clean, organized planner!

That said, I’m often at a stoplight, out and about, or at Target with the mother-of-all-shopping-carts loaded down with the kids and 1,249 rolls of toilet paper when I think of something that I want to add to my calendar or to-do list. This week’s tip…

Keep a little planner side-kick!

Rather than haul my planner on day-to-day errands, I keep a smallish white leather pouch (I’d buy this one now) with a little journal where I can jot down notes and things that come to mind, a pen, and planner clips to clip together post its, business cards, and other stuff people give me that I want to hold on to.

This island of organization floats in the abyss of my bag and I know that the essentials are there where and when I need them (the kids also know that this pouch is OFF LIMITS). I also put it next to my bed at night (because inevitably, that’s when my most creative ideas come!).

Then when I have the chance, I transcribe any additions to my planner. Easy as pie. And totally organized (if I do say so myself!).

Now let’s get to the reason you REALLY came here today…


CONGRATS Melissa Tamer!!!

This GRAND PRIZE is rad and I had SO much fun putting it together! Not only do you get this beautiful Paper Source planner (that I kinda want to put on my wall instead of in my sidekick), you also get a bunch of awesome goodies + a $20 Pipsticks gift card to use in our Sticker Shop!

Packed Party Confetti Pouch: OK, so Jenna may not let this leave the office. It’s been sitting pretty on her desk all day and she’s more than a little obsessed with it. But, let’s be honest, who wouldn’t be?! The confetti is sandwiched in the lining so it won’t fall out. Revolutionary!!

Kate Spade Notepad: I think if I kept these, I wouldn’t be able to bring myself to use them! This super fancy telegram notepad is the perfect addition to your desk and will keep you looking extra classy, even when things are a mess!

Cori (AKA @theresetgirl) was all heart eyes when she saw it at Alt Summit last week too 🙂

    1. Confetti pouch is gorgeous -love! And Washi tape is a mistake in my house.
      My daughter in kindergarten, who I subscribed to get your stickers each month, has problems getting the straw from her drink box out of the plastic at lunch, so I use Washi tape to add an unwrapped straw to her drink box which makes it easy to detach and stick in the box. And I’m presently out of tape! 🙂

    2. I love all the products and spreading them on my table will ignite and inspire great artistic journaling entries into the planner!

  1. I LOVE IT ALL !!!!! I’M DROOLING !!!!! Can I also say I have only seen a confetti bag in dreams and you just brought it to life. WOW….. Thanks for the chance to win something this awesome Mo and sticker staffers. I love being on board. YAAASSS

  4. OMG!
    Where to start?! The planner is so vibrant I don’t think a dull day could be possible, that’s super cute! And as so many have mentioned that glitter pouch… are we really only meant to choose one as a fave?!

    And thank you for giving the opportunity for non social media individuals to enter!

  5. This is absolutely THE most rad assortment of get sh*t done swag in the history of ever. I would sit on a bee hive for that confetti bag alone-failing to be an organized adult for the 44th year in a row? Who cares! Have you seen these gold clips!?! I’m going to be the cutest hot mess in the staff meeting. 🎉✨🎊💕

  6. That’s such a beautiful prize package! Everything looks so yummy! I’ve never had a planner, and this package would be a great way to start the journey!

  7. The Packed Party Confetti Pouch is so pretty! It’s my favourite item in the Grand Prize. But I pretty much love all the items. I started planning only this year, so I really don’t have many things. This giveaway would be perfect for me. 😉

  8. OH MY!!!!! You have no idea how much I NEEEEED that confetti pouch. It’s perfefct, sparkly and well….sparkly….love love love it!!!!!

  9. WOWOWOW, I love them all, this giveaway is a perfect combination of everything!! Hard to decide, but maybe I’d pick the C.R. Gibson Binder Clips as my favorite.. AND the Kusama bag.. AND the planner..ahhh!! xD

  10. Wow! This could really come in handy. I use to be on top of everything. Now with a 1 and 2 year old I’m struggling to keep up. My goal is to get organized before baby number 3 arrives. A little sticker flare could go a long way too.

  11. I love everything but boy! Those pens in those rainbow colors. SWOON! This girl could never have too many pens, pencils, crayons, markers!

  12. My favorite item is the C.R Gibson binder clips. But I like the confetti pouch too. Thanks for the great giveaway.

  15. This is so fun! Hard to choose what I love the most! I have a “thing” for paper supply stuff!😍 I think my favorite thing might be the tote‼️ Or maybe the “telegraph pad?” The sparkly washi tape? The planner? The pens? The stickers? I can’t decide! Lol! So cute! Thanks for a chance to win this fun giveaway!

  16. Glittery pouch! Gotta get me one 😍😍😍😍
    Thanks Mo☮️👸🏻🦄😇👸🏼❤️❤️❤️❤️🤓

  17. I am in LOVE with that confetti pouch! Confetti is kind of my thing for some reason! I often say *tosses confetti* and it became my thing online, and in real life! I’m always finding ways to toss confetti at my friends long distance too. 😉 I hope I win for that and for ALL the other amazing things!

  18. How do I pick just one favorite? Sparkle pouch is way up there. But the planner? So amazing! And check out those clips. Super handy by far.

  19. I might be turning 40 this summer, but my teenage heart is obsessed with that Packed Party Confetti Pouch. Love it and love Pipsticks! Thanks for the amazing work you do!

  20. This grand prize is absolutely gorgeous! I am in love with the confetti pouch! As a career woman, Mother and wife I always need more ways to stay organized!

  21. I love the flags! A great fun and colorful way to easily turn to the page (or pages) you want in your planner. I also love the washi, which adds some sparkle and personalization to your planner. And who doesn’t need sparkle in their day? Thank you!

  22. As a former elementary school teacher I may have had/still have a slight (large) obsession with office supplies. I love all of this, but the confetti pouch is super awesome!

  23. I love the idea of a small journal to jot down ideas and dates on the go, and a clutch to keep loose papers organized until you can add everything in to your planner! That has been a big reason I’ve failed to keep a paper planner updated in the past, and then stopped using one for everyday life. Thanks for the tips!

  24. The confetti pouch is my favorite. Love using different pouches in my everyday work tote to keep things organized and easily accessible. Thanks for this wonderful giveaway opportunity!

  25. I definitely want those binder clips!!! I feel like binder clips are so underrated but I realized that they are very very useful in organizing my messy piles of paper.

  26. Love everything!! What a super fun assortment! The planner is my favorite. Thank you for putting this together.

  27. The whole prize is so amazing it is hard to choose, But I really like the telegram notepad and the planner. Both would help me stay organized.

  28. I love everything in this giveaway but my fav has to be the clips! I love the things written on them, so cute!! Thanks for the giveaway pipsticks!

  29. Totally in love with the glittered wash I tape BUT I’m dying for the ¡¡Packed Party Confetti Pouch!! Indeed that SO BAD!!!!😱😍 Where did you get that beauty anyway?!?! A bit obsessed, but not in a creepy way!! Lol!!

  30. Every. Single. Thing. I keep thinking I need this in my life and it would be just the thing to help my business stay organized. Thanks so much!

  31. For favorite item I am torn between the MOMA tote and the confetti pouch.

    I really appreciate the small pouch idea in your article. I am trying my best to stay organized and not forgot things. With all of the errands, appointments, etc. we have going on and the fact that it seems like someone needs me right-this-second every moment of the day; I am a little scrambled eggs brain over here. I am going to try this tip out. If I remember… 😉

  32. As a cihld masquerading as a grownup, I find it impossible to choose a favorite. So my fave is the collective – MAGICAL giveaway!

  33. You had me at the C.R. Gibson Binder Clips! LOL I truly love the whole package that you created — great choices, as always! Thanks for giving folks several chances to win really SWEET stuff. <3

  34. I’m obsessed with those page flags! My love of planners is a little bit out of control (I may or may not have a semi-ripped Target bag with washi in it floating around in my work bag right now), but I’ve never been able to commit to page flags that aren’t from the dollar bin/that actually stick to pages and look pretty at the same time. These page flags are my planner dream!

  35. This is a really nice give away, I think my favorites are the page tags – I like to put tags on everything, just ask my family… lol

  36. Of course I love it all !!! I am so new to this that it all looks like Christmas to me ! 🙂 I have been looking for a bag to carry my planner and everyday necessities so the bag definitely brought on a “hmmmmm :)” moment for me. I haven’t found a great set of pens yet either so those were the next to bring a smile to my face.
    Thank you for the chance ! 🙂

  37. I don’t think I have a favorite. I’m obsessed with it all!😍 I’m a bit of a stationery-holic.😁 No shame😉

  38. That Kate spade telegram notepad has been on my self reward list for 3 months. But honestly those gold clips are my favorite ever.

  39. I love the variety of stickers, the packaging it comes in, and the fun newsletter. I would love the raffle tickets even more if I ever won 😊!!

  40. WELL, I love it all, but the Kate Spade telegram notepad is just too cute, AND the Moma Tote Bag would be just the best. You can’t have too many tote bags. Right?

  41. Where in the world do you get that sparkle pouch? I’m in love!! Even if I don’t win, I neeeeed to know where I can get one. You folks here are so generous!!

  42. I just learned of this site and I’m grateful I did. The stuff is all so beautiful. Love the wasbi tape is my favorite as I’m obsessed with was I tape. Your stickers are amazing and I’m looking so forward to shop in PIPSTICKS. Such a generous offer. I love the confetti pouch. So bright and so many happy colours. Thanks for letting us enter a beautiful giveaway.

  43. I say eveything is my favorite, but the confetti pouch I am loving. I’m a pen lover so those pens are rad. God, I want this so bad.

  44. Love this and Pipsticks!!! We have been getting out sticker on in my Music Therapy classroom and my students and their love of earning the stickers has brought me back to my childhood. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for putting smiles on some great kids faces:-)

  45. How could I pick one favorite thing? I’m torn between the two pouches, but I think I would need the gold one more as my pen collection keeps growing!

  46. This is too cute! I just love it and I’m looking forward to more. Cannot live without my Pipsticks and all the great ideas.

  47. Omgarsh! You’re a real classy dame for giving away all this sparkly goodness. I’m in love with it all and could never choose one thing… it all needs to come live at my house.

  48. The confetti pouch is just too cute! Everything is amazing and y’all did a great job putting it all together! Thanks for doing stuff like this for us!

  49. What an awesome giveaway. So fun! I did want to mention that I follow you on Pinterest, but it wasn’t giving me credit. Also, I shared on Facebook for the last one and it wasn’t giving me an entry for that either. 🙁

  50. Love the gel pens, I’m always leaving sweet notes all around for my kids and they love when it’s colorful and pretty.

  51. The binder clips are fun, the confetti pouch stunning, the shiny pencil case is pretty awesome too… Hard to choose really… Nice that the winner gets it all! Good luck everyone!

  54. Oh my gosh…!!!! As a teacher who plans all the time this would so brighten my days!!! Thank you for the opportunity!!! The tote, the Washi tape….can you tell I’m excited????❤❤❤😀😀😀

  57. Thank you! 🤔 Too many fun pieces to choose just ONE favorite! But if I have to pick just one…… I’m going to say the planner. 🙂

  58. Love the colored markers – Ok I’ll fess up I have a marker fetish. I just love looking at them like Midas and his gold. I also love the pouch and washi tape (my new fetish is washi tape – I again I collect and just survey all that is mine.) It’s fun to be me. 🙂
