There are some things that I have realized have become must-have items when it comes to blogging. Here are 10 of them:
Emily Ley’s simplified planner:
I love This planner! Trust me, I have been through ALOT of different planners in my life, but once I found this one I have stuck with it for the last 4 years! Read my 10 Reasons you need a simplified planner for more.
2. Lara Casey’s Power Sheets and Make it Happen Book:
Lara Casey is one heck of an amazing woman. She came up with these amazing power sheets that are the only reason I meet my goals in life. With her amazing tending lists and the steps she takes you through to realize and achieve your goals, she makes it impossible not to reach your goals. Her webinars are always so helpful and inspiring. Her AMAZING book Make it Happen is a must read.
Ok, So I will admit I am a bit of a coffee drinker. Well, that is a lie, I am a coffee fanatic. Like really I can not get enough. Luckily my Keurig is ALWAYS there to get me through in less time than any other coffee brewer I have ever owned. I love that it also comes with this amazing refillable K-Cup that you can put any coffee into. If you seriously don’t have a Keurig yet, get one. They don’t just make coffee, you can have tea, hot chocolate, and any of their amazing brews over Ice drinks.
4. 31 Bag:
This bag is amazing it is big enough to hold everything I could ever want to put in it and take with me. I have several of them and use them for all kinds of things. One holds all my blogging stuff, one is in my trunk with all my emergency Items, and one I use to carry all my groceries up 3 flights of stairs to our home. Seriously, you will ALWAYS find a use for one. It is a must have!
5. Photo booth:
Ever wonder how bloggers that are doing really well get such great photos? Well, some buy them, and others take them themselves. This Photo booth gives you an easy way to have a clean looking photo. Just put your item on it and fill it with props. Make sure you try your best to take your photos in natural light.
6. Editorial Calendar:
I have had my eye on this editorial calendar for almost a year now and will be asking for it for Christmas. It makes it so easy to plan out your posts and always have some idea of that to write.
Many bloggers take their photos off their phones now with how amazing the camera’s are on them. What is great about getting a camera like the one below is not only that it is cheap, but see how the screen can flip up like that for you to see yourself? Makes it very easy to take a video of yourself. Video Blogging is taking off right now and it is always great if you can add a video to your blog post.
8. Notepad and pen
These I keep on me at all times so I can quickly jot down an Idea for a post, something fun that happened to share on social media, or a great idea for an ebook or course I could sell. I love these pens. I have 3 sets and use them multiple times a day. They are the best pens I have ever paid for.

10. The perfect to-do list:
Blogging puts a lot of things on your to-do list. It is great to have something nearby to jot it all down. I also use this list to jot down other non blogging related things that come to mind while I am working on blogging stuff so that I don’t forget. I love this list and it is the one I use every day.
