I'm yet to meet anybody who doesn't like stationary.. granted some aren't quite as obsessed with it as others but I think we all appreciate a nice diary don't we?! Being organised is definitely easier when you're using tools that not only function well, but that look good too.
When I found That Lame Company (who aren't lame at all by the way) I instantly saw that they have got both function and looks down perfectly! They are an online store, with lots of fun designs, run by Chloe and Charlie. It was founded in 2014 in Charlie's kitchen (where all the best ideas happen I'm sure you'll agree). Chloe does most of the design work and handles social media, whilst Charlie according to their website is "an ideas man" and handles the financial side of things. Judging by their products they seem to have a great partnership going!
There is a great range of products in the That Lame Company store from art prints to notebooks, deskpads to phone cases... and at great prices there's no reason not to treat yourself.
Above you can see some of the art prints included in the 4 pack of Insulting Incentives, which I absolutely adore! The twitter one describes me far more closely tha I would like so it got pinned above my desk straight away.. and the other two are also quite accurate too (oops)! As I said there are 4 A6 prints in the pack which are hand designed and then digitally coloured.. they cost £4.99 and I think they're just brilliant! Perfect either to give yourself a kick up the bum or as a gift to someone else who you know struggles to stay focused!
Another product from That Lame Company that I was instantly drawn to was the deskpad you can see below. I am always writing lists, and then losing them, so writing another one and then losing that as well! I tried a to-do list app on my phone, but it's just not the same.. I forget to check it! So this A5 Weekly Calendar Deskpad is perfect for me... I can plan out the week with things that I already know about and then just add things as I go! There are 50 pages so almost enough to get you through the year.. and wouldn't be without mine now, it is my most important organisational tool! It's another great value piece at just £6.99, and as it does the job of both a diary and a notepad you can't go wrong. Add to that the fact that the rose design is simply gorgeous and this is a winner in my book!
Overall, I'm really impressed with all the products that That Lame Company offer, and I'm going to repeat what I said earlier.. they're definitely not lame! Everything that I've seen has been top quality, really well made and unique! I've got my eye on a couple of their gold A5 prints at the moment, so don't be too surprised if you see one pop up on my instagram!
I'd love to know how you stay organised.. do you use a deskpad like mine or have you gone digital? Drop me a comment with your thoughts!
Stay safe, x
