I have been so extremely excited to share today’s post with you, my Plum Paper Family Planner for 2015-2016 review! It’s taken me awhile to put it all together because I wanted it to be just perfect to share with you! And I wanted to get used to it, since it’s so different from any planner I have used before! Let’s get started shall we… 🙂
Design wise, I chose this orange and lime quatrefoil print cover (which is much softer in color in person than it appears in pictures) for several reasons:
1) I carry my planner in my purse every day, and most other covers had a white background (can you say “dirty”)
2) It has a monogram (I mean… duh)
3) It reminded me of my beloved Florida Gators 🙂
Size-wise, I would compare the planner to the Lilly Pulitzer Medium Size Agenda, just with out the hard cover and slightly lighter weight.
Like most planners, the Plum Paper Planner has a fabulous monthly overview 2-page spread. I adore the size of the spaces- there is so much room to write! There’s also room to jot down birthdays and events in the month. I have a color code for my monthly commitments and then write in my gym class schedule.
Now here is where the selling point for me came in- the weekly spread! You are able to customize all seven of the boxes down the side to what ever you need! Since my to-do list was spiraling out of control, I divided them into the three categories they fall in and made a box for each one (and no, it doesn’t look crazy below because that is not cute for a picture, can we agree on that?? ha! #reallifevsbloglife) I also have a box for my morning and evening schedule, events happening that day/week, and my bills that are due (this is a lifesaver for keeping me organized and on budget)!
So what do you think? I hope that you’ve fallen in love with the Plum Paper Family Planner too! I will admit it’s taken me a few weeks to get used to a vertical vs. a traditional horizontal layout, but now I love it! And I love the level of organization I can achieve with this planner! A++ from me y’all!
What planner do you have and love??
