Hello, as you know we love a Personal Planner. Since I was gifted one at “BritMums Live” many years ago I’ve treated myself to one every year (along with their Wall Planner). The older kids are so used to me using mine to organise our lives, so now they love them too. Last year Danny reviewed his new Personal Planner for college so it was Rebecca’s turn this year as she returns to school and a “new normal”. Read on to find out her thoughts and for a chance to win a Personal Planner voucher so you can treat yourself to a Personal Planner of your own!
Personal Planner Review
Choosing a Cover
Rebecca’s favourite thing about Personal Planners are the way you get to use your own photographs on the design. She has such happy memories of her school trip to France and Disneyland Paris, so she had no problem choosing a photograph for her front cover. Personal Planner also have lots of pretty cover designs to choose from if you don’t have a photograph in mind.
Choosing the Layout
Once she’d designed her cover, she loved the whole customising process. I love the layout she has chosen and may copy it for my next planner. I usually have the week spread over two weeks, but I love this layout having the “week on one page” and the opposite page free for a big “Make a List” section. I love my lists as does Rebecca so this is a great idea for us.
Each Personal Planner comes with a plastic ruler and an elastic closure. You can choose from a variety of colours. I save my old plastic rulers and use a few in my current planner. You can buy extra ones too. I like to have at least one to mark the current week and month. They are so handy as it means you always have a ruler on you too!
Rebecca also has a “Colour-in” module to doodle in when she’s got spare time, a space for “Tests of the Week” and a blank section. I love the quote of the week option too.
Every Personal Planner comes with lovely stickers. Rebecca loved sitting down personalising and organising her planner with her stickers. As you can see her sister, Caitlyn’s birthday is coming up!
Make a List
As I mentioned above, I love this “Make a List” section and am going to plan my own planner this way next time. If you love making lists there are lots of opportunities to add lists to your Personal Planner. In addition to this section, you can add list Modules and List pages at the end.
The Monthly Overview section is one of the most useful parts of the Personal Planner. Add this when you’re customising the back pages, but they’re slotted in at the beginning of each month. I love this section to plan my month and blog planner. It’s a great way for Rebecca to look at her month ahead too.
Customising The Back Pages
Blank Music Paper
Rebecca chose blank music paper to jot down guitar tunes as they come to her.
She also chose blank pages to draw and doodle.
She chose lined paper for taking notes and making more lists if needed!
Lastly, she chose map pages. These are lovely to plan travel and also just to dream or learn about other countries. If you love travelling, they do lots more travel-themed pages, such as “Travel: Landmark & Trips” and “Prepare”, “Journal” and “Memories” sections.
Every Personal Planner comes with a plastic pocket to keep your accessories in.
Talking of accessories, Personal Planner sell them too. Rebecca chose some pens and sticky notes to help with her organisation.
