Hi guys! I have a really fun un-boxing of sorts to share with you all today. As some of you know if you follow me on Instagram, I recently had the honor of becoming the photographer for the Planner Addict Box. The Planner Addict Box team is full of some amazing and inspiring ladies, and I highly recommend you go check them out (they are all linked on Instagram here).
I recently received my very first Planner Addict Box, which happened to be the October box, and I thought I’d share with you guys what came in it! In case you don’t know, the Planner Addict Box is a monthly subscription service that delivers a box of planner goodies to you each month. While the contents of the box changes each month, this post will give you a good idea of the type of items you can expect to see in a regular box.
Since this month’s box was October, it was clearly designed with a fall theme in mind. With lots of pretty neutrals and a few fun pops of pink and orange, the colors definitely make me want to curl up with a hot cup of apple cider while I plan!

The first thing I saw in my box was this little burlap wristlet. I thought this would be perfect to use as a pencil case. While the outside black and tan stripe is cute, I fell really hard for the multi-toned pink heart patterned interior! I just love that fun surprise pop of color that is seen throughout this whole kit!
Next up is a bunch of Project Life cards. These particular cards come from the Midnight Edition core kit, one of my favorites. The black and white cards with the pops of orangey yellow are perfect for Halloween inspired layouts. And I am always a sucker for geometric and graphic prints.
I will probably hole punch these and add them into my planner layouts for decoration, maybe adding a quote or a pretty design on the card. Another option would be using the card for your to do list, meal plan or shopping list.
These teeny sticker sheets from MareBear Crafts are just too stinkin’ adorable, and are perfect for autumn monthly planning. The quality is great on these little cuties, and I love the variety of functional and decorative stickers. While I’m normally not a planner girl who uses too much cutesy decoration, I completely fell in love with the little candy corn and caramel apple faces… I mean come on! <3
The next item in this month’s box is a set of sticky notes design by The Planner Addict Box, which I’m assuming means they are exclusive to this box. If you watched my desk tour video, then you guys know how much of a sticky note lover I am. I think it’s especially fun that these are designed specifically for planner lovers!
These beauties ended up being my favorite item in this entire box. These ribbon paper clips are by Dear Lola Planner Studio and oh my gosh they have my heart! The three clips that came in the Planner Addict Box are exclusive designs and won’t be available anywhere else. Each clip come with the most gorgeous gold foil lettering, and the unique ribbon style of the clips is unlike any other I’ve seen in the planner community. I will definitely be adding more of these cuties to my ‘to buy’ list!
Next up is another planner sticker sheet, this one by Wendaful Designs. This sheet is another sampler with a nice mix of functional and decorative stickers. This sheet brings some purples into the color palette, and has a fun watercolor feel to a few of the designs.
Each box also came with a roll of washi tape. From what I’ve seen there are two different designs that could come in the October box. This plain tan washi or a striped tan pattern. I think this plain washi will be really useful for layering, and for adding a natural feel to my layouts when I want it.
Next up is a full sheet of chipboard heart stickers from Studio Calico. I really love the colors in these embellishments, especially that pretty coral! While I think they’re a bit thick to use in a regular planner spread, I think they would be really fun to jazz up a dashboard, or even the cover of your planner if you’re feeling crazy!
Finally, each box came with a pen, again with two color options – black or orange. This ballpoint pen has a really nice even ink flow, and even comes with a stylus of the top to use with your phone or tablet! I super love the crystals at the top of the barrel, so fun and fancy.
And that finishes up all the awesome goodies that came in the October Planner Addict Box! I hope you guys like this little review of sorts. This particular box is all sold out, but if you hurry, you can win one over on their Facebook page! (Don’t forget to ‘like’ Label Me Merrit while you’re over there 😉 ). Or you can sign up to be added to December’s wait list (November is already sold out… these things go fast!) here. Good luck and happy planning!!
