I’ve been looking to get a new planner for a while now. I love them! I might have a touch of an obsession.
The first place I started looking for a new planner was on Youtube. When it comes to the perfect one, video reviews are top notch. You can see a lot more and experience it more than just regular review or pictures on the company site.
In the past, I have tried many different ones including the biggies. I’ve had an Erin Condren before, and it just didn’t work for me. This past year I’ve been using the Plum Planner which I loved but unfortunately, a cup of coffee got spilled on it, and I can’t work with it anymore. Okay let me be honest I probably could, but it was the perfect reason to get something new.
While watching tons of youtube videos, I initially had decided I was going to get a Fruitful planner until I came across a video discussing the changes for the layout and decided they were changing a lot of things I loved about it. So I continued to search, and I came across the Personal Planner.
I love my new planner. It is 99% customizable. It is precisely what I wanted and needed cause I designed it. Personal Planner is a Swedish company so I figured they would ship to Norway and they did. They have free shipping for all of their planners. Isn’t that amazing?
Customizing Your Planner
Let’s talk about all customizations you can do with this fabulous planner starting with size. They currently offer four sizes starting with a mini (4.1 x 5.6″) up to an A5 (5.8 x 8.1″). I chose to go with the A5. Once you pick your size, you move on to customize your covers. There is a wide range of choices, or you can upload your front and back cover. I chose to create my covers in Picmonkey and then upload them. Another customization I love is the fact you can upload a list of birthdays and anniversaries, and they print those for you. Your planner can come in just about any language you want. I got my planner published in Norwegian. When in Norway, right?
There are several layouts you can choose from. So pick what works for you. You can add a meal plan section, lines, to do list, idea box, and much more. The personal planner site is straightforward to navigate, and it walks you through every single step of designing your perfect planner.
Now on to my thoughts after receiving my product, as I already mentioned I am in love. The quality is amazing. The individual pages are high-quality thick paper. The cover is a high-grade photo type paper but a bit thicker. The cover is then topped with a textured plastic cover. Included is a ruler (you get to pick your color) which is thick and will stand up to the abuse mine receives typically.
I honestly can’t wait to get planning! I’m thrilled with my new Personal Planner and look forward to using it all year long. It truly is personalized to fit my needs and expectations, and I know it will do the same for you, too!
