    Hey! While we try to keep our posts updated as much as we can, this post is actually from 2018, so we can't guarantee that the pricing and/or availability of the products featured are accurate. For our most up-to-date recommendations, check out the 2019 version of this post!

    1. A set of super-fine pens perfect for bullet journaling, color coding, and giving your endless lists a little more ~pizazz~.

    2. An adhesive dry erase calendar to map out your week or month and let you keep track of your meticulously crafted plans at a glance.

    3. Slippers that double as dusters, because why do one thing when you could be doing two?!

    4. The planner of your dreams, with daily, weekly, and monthly pages to log everything from tasks to goals to what you're grateful for.

    5. A waterproof notepad for recording all of your vitally important shower thoughts.

    6. Tantalizingly transparent thinking putty to fidget with when you're feeling stressed or impatient (so, like...always).

    7. Melatonin chocolates that are a sweet way to help you get some darn sleep instead of of lying awake and obsessing about what you have to do tomorrow.

    8. A subscription to The Planner Addict, which'll deliver a box of stationery, stickers, and other goodies to make your planner pop every single month.

    9. A very wise unisex T-shirt paying homage to the queen of type A folks everywhere, Hermione Jean Granger.

    10. And some quill-like pens so you can further channel your bushy-haired heroine while jotting down your plans (which are set in ink, not pencil, duh).

    11. An document organizer able to accommodate your seemingly endless pile of papers and look cute doing it, too.

    12. The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, the bestselling book that will take even the most organized people to the next level of neatness.

    13. Or The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving A F*ck, if your goal is to actually become less obsessed with the little things.

    14. Jumbo divider sticky tabs for notes that are so beautiful, you'll cry tears of joy.

    15. A mug declaring your personal motto. Go ahead, treat yo' self to it.

    16. A wake-up light so you can feel more rested even if you got way too little sleep...again.

    17. A water bottle with a storage compartment that can hold your phone, because you hate to miss an important notification even when you're on the go.

    18. A page-holding thumb ring so it's way easier to read while eating or taking notes. Using two hands to read is a waste of resources, amirite?

    19. A multipurpose organizer to hang by your front door so you never have to worry about forgetting anything ever again.

    20. A budget book with space to record all the money you have coming in and out, plus pockets for stashing important bills and reciepts.

    21. A handy little gadget designed to ensure you never accidentally forget about your furry friend.

    22. A cheeky-yet-practical meal planner pad for the most important list of all: what to eat.

    23. A mini USB fan to cool you down whenever you've been frantically running around between errands and meetings.

    24. A tear-off notepad for a to-do list that maps out every aspect of your hella productive day.

    25. Incredibly relatable socks to celebrate your reliance on caffeine and declare your dominance over the world.

    26. A divided laundry hamper to save you precious time that would otherwise be spent sorting. It'll also rescue you from a roommate who — *shudder* — just tosses everything in the washer willy-nilly.

    27. A desktop punching bag for releasing the rage you feel when someone tells you to "relax."

    28. Noise-cancelling bluetooth headphones that make it easy to — as my first grade teacher used to say — hocus pocus focus.

    29. A blow dry accelerator spray, because you want great hair without the wait. You've got places to go, people to see.

    30. Cable clips so you won't get your wires crossed. That kind of clutter is for type B people.

    31. A folding lap desk that'll allow you to get shit done from the comfort of your bed.

    32. A phone case with a built-in squish toy, for those times when you show up somewhere wayyyy too early and need to entertain yourself without draining your phone battery. We've all been there.

    33. A swear-y coloring book, which will live up to its name and help you calm the fuck down, while putting your incredibly detail-oriented nature to good use.

    34. A mini emergency kit to keep on hand, because Scar may have been evil and all, but he had a point — you should always BE PREPARED.

    35. Or an 11-function pocket tool for an edgier way to be ready for anything.

    36. Mr. Clean Magic Erasers, for those of you who get a huge thrill out of running around the house removing every scuff and speck of grime with a miraculous little sponge.

    37. Very Good Lives, a transcript of J.K. Rowling's iconic speech on the importance of failure, to remind you that's it's okay not to be perfect all the time.

    38. The Nifty Journal, which is part planner, part diary, and part all-around guide to life.

    40. A classic watch so you'll look extra cute while being extra early to every event.

    41. And some stress-relieving honey lavender tea for unwinding after a long day of being you.

    Yes, you may get stressed easily and others may tell you to chill, but never forget:
