Personal-Planner Review

I’m still firmly a paper and pen kinda gal when it comes to planning and diary keeping. I’ve tried using calendar/diary apps but they just don’t work for me. I like something physical I can see in front of me, where I can jot notes and reminders, and flick through the pages to see what is coming up. I’ve used a Personal Planner for the past couple of years, and it is honestly the best planner I’ve ever used.

What I love most about Personal Planners is that you can fully customise it so it suits your needs. From size {they offer planners in Mini, Square, Wide, A5 and A4}, to the cover design {you can upload your own photo or use one of their gorgeous designs}, the inlay design, extra pages and even the colour of the elastic closure! At just £18.90 for the mini, and £39.99 for the A4 they are excellent value for money.

I usually go for the wide size, I like the layout of this size, there is plenty of space for me to add in appointments, kids clubs, work commitments, days out, holidays, birthdays, reminders etc yet it is still small enough to throw in my handbag if I need to take it out with me. You can also have dates pre-printed in if you like, for example, birthdays and anniversaries. along the bottom, I chose lines to give me space to add notes – but you could also pick other options such as lists, dinners, ideas, workouts etc. You also get a ruler, a clear plastic sleeve and a sheet of stickers with your planner. You can also choose the month your planner starts on – so no waiting for January to get a new planner anymore!

I also ordered one of their Wall Planners. It’s the first time I’ve had a wall calendar in a couple of years. We have a monthly chalkboard calendar on our kitchen wall which is amazing as it’s so big I can’t fail to miss appointments! Yet, lately, I’ve been finding that we could use a wall calendar so that the kids can look at things coming up in the next few months without having to go through my personal diary.

Again, the wall planners are customisable. You can use your own image for the cover, or choose one of their designs, adding any text you like to the cover as well. you can pick different design themes for the inside, add columns for each family member, add pre-printed dates if you wish, and modules at the bottom – such as to-do lists, shopping lists, squares, lines, or leave it blank.

I’m hoping this will keep the five of us organised – my four kiddos have so many commitments it can get complicated organising everything! I love that we each have a separate column on the calendar – making it easy to see at a glance what each of us are up to {and hopefully will mean I don’t mess up – like waking my teenager at 9am on a Sunday for her art class….. a week early!}
