Organising

Personal-Planner Review & Giveaway!

August 2, 2016

4

This is not a sponsored post. I purchased this planner to use and review and the giveaway is self-funded. All opinions expressed are my own.

Earlier this year, I wrote about my BASICS notebook and how I intended to use it to organise for 2016. While I love the notebook’s features, several things just didn’t work for me and I began to look for other options. I still intend to use the BASICS planner for work-related planning, so I was on the hunt for a more personal planner. Which is when I found Personal-Planner (thank you Google!)

Personal-Planner allow you to personalise nearly every aspect of your planner, from the cover, to the colour of the tie bind, to the layout, the content, the starting month, and lots of other things in between. There are a variety of sizes to choose from – the mini, square, wide and A5. I went with the A5 as that is the size I like to use and the size that fits most of my bags.

The customisation tool is by far the simplest I’ve seen. I compared it with other personalised planner websites and it really is far superior to other options. 1

When you login, you are asked to choose the size of your planner, followed by a cover design and the options are endless. You could use a photograph, a collage of photographs, just text, plain colour, one of their patterns or designs or upload your own design. I found one on Etsy that I absolutely loved so I purchased it and used it as a cover design. I could then crop and move it to fit the way I wanted it to. You also have the option of choosing a back cover and I cropped part of the design from the front cover and added it to the bottom, which I thought was a nice touch. I didn’t want to replicate the same design on the back – I thought that would be overkill.

There are options to choose the colour of your elastic closure and the month you’d like your planner to start from. I picked a colour to complement the design on the front and opted for August as my start month. You can also enter custom text for the front cover which I didn’t do as I don’t particularly like the font option they have.

Coloured tabs

Moving on to the inlay, you have four options for your weekly layout and I picked the horizontal version that has Saturday and Sunday side by side – very similar to the Moleskine layout which I really enjoy using. You can also choose to have ruled or striped pages – I opted for ruled as wonky handwriting drives me crazy, and you can also choose the colour of your detachable ruler. I opted for the transparent option.

There is also a daily details section where you can choose to have weather (I must admit I’m a little stumped as to why you’d want this on a planner!), work, and workout details. I chose work – to help me keep track of my work hours and workout details to help keep me accountable! It’s at this point that you also have the option to enter personal dates – my absolute favourite thing about this planner. It takes a little while to enter all the dates, depending on how many details you want to add, but I chose to input birthdays, anniversaries, bank holidays, Eids and Ramadan dates along with little icons. I love that I can just add to this calendar and order a reprint next year and it’s all saved without me having to re-enter everything again! The top bar is also customisable and they have several design theme options. If you’re indecisive, you may want to dedicate an afternoon to this!

Month overview

The modules are another feature I really enjoy – these are printed along the bottom of the page and there are various options: preschool, dinners, exams, to do, graphs, list, ideas etc. I chose dinners because it’s excellent for meal planning and great to keep a record of what we’ve been eating week after week. I also chose a To Do module and a List of the Week module. There is a little monthly calendar that comes as standard and a little empty box for notes.

2

The back pages have a multitude of options – overview of the year, Sudoku, colouring pages, ruled pages, maps – you can even choose how many pages you want, and there are handy teacher pages that teachers would find really useful. I opted for an overview of the year which includes the whole of 2017 so if I wanted to do any forward planning past August 2017, this would be handy. On reflection, I wish I had included a few colouring pages – but there’s always next year insha’Allah!

The rest of the pages are all ruled and I’ve labelled these with the stickers that came with the planner to use for:

Eid prep & gift lists

Ramadan prep & gifts

Measurements (I like to have the kids’ measurements, our measurements, room dimensions, etc. on hand when I’m out and about so if I see something we might like I’m making an informed purchasing decision)

Dinner ideas (this will have a list of absolutely everything we’ve ever made and recipes I want to try so when I’m meal planning, it’s an easy reference)

Gift ideas (I find this really useful as I will sometimes come across something for someone that I think is perfect and now I can just make a quick note of it until I’m able to purchase it)

Reading wishlist (I keep coming across recommendations for various books and can never remember the titles when I want to make a purchase so this will be helpful!)

The last customisation screen is the owner info page where they recommend you put in your contact information in the event that you leave the planner somewhere. I chose to have the translation of a Quranic verse that I would like to see on a daily basis and my name, email and phone number. I preferred not to print my home address in it.

And you’re done! You then get a little order summary page where they confirm you will receive your planner, an elastic enclosure, a ruler, a plastic sleeve and full page of stickers all within the price of your planner.

IMG_0098

I’ve had the chance to use mine and I really enjoy using something that feels quite personal to me with features that I will actually make use of and benefit from. I like it so much that I think one of you should have it too! I’m giving away a gift card for a planner (any size) between now and the end of August – You’ll find entry details and terms and conditions below.

If you’d prefer not to enter or just want to place your order asap – Personal-Planner is offering 15% off all orders between now and 21 August as part of their Back to School drive. The code is P-LANN-ER16.

    With a family of 3, a planner is essential. I feel really disconcerted if I don’t have one available. I would want my planner to have space to record special dates, contact details, to do lists, and meal planners (to motivate me to start). Space for notes and doodles would be great, too.

He has a long way to go as it was recently a revelation for him to be shown how to write a basic daily To Do List and work through it (he had never done this before)! So my planner would be split into sections and the Post-Its would be really useful for writing “Remind Darius to…” on lots of them LOL! Oh, and I too favour the A5 format, and my favourite cover picture shown could be either the Great Things Take Time slogan or the black and white Stag Beetle image, which is very different.

  • Reply Miss Tracy Hanson August 29, 2016 at 4:17 pm

    I need a planner for work. We have to do everything by hand (not on the computer) and have to keep checking the diary to see what slots we have left for collections and deliveries. As we only have ONE diary for ALL collections and deliveries it’s hard when someone is doing one and you need to check whether there’s a slot left or if there’s enough room for a large collection/delivery, meaning some customers can get a bit “stroppy” if they have to wait a couple of minutes until the diary is free.

    I love organisation and everything is so much easier when things are planned – meals, appointments, important dates etc (especially helpful when i have multiple hospital appointments per month). The Mini one looks so cute and small enough to fit in a bag too, perfect! I really like how its so customisable – so much better than a filofax or basic date planner you’d get in a shop (which are pretty boring!)

    Any tips on bullet journaling?

    This planner sounds perfect but I’m torn between buying this and attempting to bullet journal for the flexibility that it offers. This planner seems to take the hard work out of what bullet journaling would entail.
