My day to day routine can be quite busy. From emails to school run, copywriting deadlines and household duties. So I like to keep organised and know what I am doing. Otherwise I probably would forget about the kid’s swimming lessons or miss a deadline here and there! I have had a few planners and organisers in my life, my sometimes I just lose motivation with them, or they don’t have enough space in them, or aren’t specific to my needs.
So when you can design your own planner, somewhere like Unique Planners, it makes keeping organised much easier. You can make the planner completely specific to what you want included in it. So that was a big plus from me. You can change the wording on the planner, as well as upload pictures for the cover. You can choose from their designs too, like I have.
You can choose the size, out of A4 or A5, and then the layout for each of the days. You could just have one square for each, or break down the day a little more like I have. As I have deadlines that are time specific, I like to know what I am doing each day quite precisely. A little bit pedantic of me but otherwise I just get stressed out!
I love the fact that some stickers and tabs come with the planner. It helps to just brighten things up little, as well as mark off certain things. You can choose ribbons to come with the planner, to keep you on track of where you are up to in the year. So ease of use is brilliant.
If you are a blogger, you can add pages that are specific to your blog. This is really useful for me, as I am a bit rubbish at keeping on top of things like stats and followers. I really should monitor this kind of thing more closely. There are travel pages you can add, goal lists, Christmas gift lists, notes; the list goes on!
The ring binder is really useful, as the planner is pretty bulky. It means that things keep flat when you are writing on them and pages are easy to find. The prices start from £20 for an A5 planner or £24 for an A4 planner. I don’t think that this is that bad at all. The fact that you can design it yourself is brilliant. The delivery was super quick, particularly as it wasn’t just one that they could send off from the shelf. So I was mega impressed with this.
All in all, I would completely recommend this life planner. If you need to get organised or just like to be organised, then you need this in your life.
