I’ve been using Plum Paper Planners for a couple years now. I love the customizability, the layouts, and the personalization options. (My WordPress or Chrome is telling me that personalization is not a word, but I think it’s wrong, lol) I do sometimes use other planners in addition to the Plum Paper one, but it’s been a constant for awhile now. Last year, I had the Tudor planner, which was really cool, and this year, I’ve also been using Llewellyn’s Witches’ Datebook. I’ll show you the planner I just got, and if you’re interested, at the end of the post, I’ll tell you how to save 10% if you’d like to design your own!
With a Plum Paper Planner, you decide when you want it to start – my new one starts today, May 2020. You pick your planner size, cover design, customization (photo, name, quote, etc.) They have special designs and layouts for both teachers and students. I have the A5 planner (5.8″ x 8.3″) but they also have 7 x 9 and 8.5 x 11 sizes. You can choose horizontal or vertical weekly layouts, monthly layouts, daily layouts, and can have either the standard layout or customize certain headings and areas. You can order it with the spiral binding, or unpunched, so that you can punch it yourself and have it in a binder, or use the planner discs. When I punched my own planner a couple of years ago, I bought an Arc punch, but I don’t see those available on Amazon right now. I think this Happy Planner one is similar, though. You can choose anywhere between 12-18 months for the length of your planner. There are a ton of add-ons, and some you can choose to have dispersed throughout the months, or tabbed in their own section: meal planning, shopping lists, direct sales, fitness, lined/dotted/graph/blank pages, coloring and scrapbook pages. If you are more of a journal person, there are spiral notebooks that you can also personalize, as well as several types of ready-to-ship journals. There are many accessories: stickers, dashboards, folios, desk calendars, desk notepads for daily list makers.
So here is my new planner:
I also got an interchangeable cover for later this year:
There is a matching back cover, also. All you have to do is snap it into the spiral binding.
I have a ton of planner stickers that I’ve collected over the last couple of years, but I’ve found that I don’t really use them to decorate my planner that often anymore. It’s hard enough just to keep track of the things I want to keep track of, much less take the time to decorate, lol. But if you’re the decorating type, check out Etsy – there are sooo many fun planner stickers.
I wanted to get a dotted notebook to try bullet journaling, but that’s just too much for me right now. Someday!
