Hello and welcome to my post about Getting Organised ~ My New Planner! I have just purchased a new planner from Personal Planner. Just as an aside, I purchased this with my own money and I haven’t been sponsored to write this post, I just LOVE their products.
I actually had one of these planners for 2016 and I loved it! I used their custom graphics and had the gold spot and then just had my initials and the year on the front cover and I loved it. It kept me super organised last year. At the end of last year I fell in love with a Kikki K planner. It was just so pretty! I loved it because it looked so nice, but in the end it just didn’t cut it for me personally – it just wasn’t organised enough! If you’ve read any of my previous blog posts about budgeting and saving you’ll know how organised I like to be!
So I decided that I would get another one from Personal Planner and then tell you all about it! So here is my post on Getting Organised ~ My New Planner!

PP have lots of cool graphics to chose from but this year I am now the proud owner of Adobe Photoshop so I designed my own cover using a pack of graphics that I bought from Creative Market*. I used the floral graphics and different fonts and colours to create a front and back which I love. Personally I think it looks pretty good, but I’m probably biased!
There is a clear front cover and then the front and back are smooth sheen card. The pages are also a really nice thick paper. You can chose the start month of your planner to suit you, so mine is 12 months from August 2017.
As you go through PP you pick your size, mine is A5. Then you can pick your front and back cover and type on the front and the colour of your elastic closure. Then you get to the part where you design your pages- this is the bit that really appealed to me. I chose layout 1 with the timetable. I have a professional job so it’s really good for me to book in meetings etc… I then have the lines underneath and I use that for my ‘to do’ of the day. In this section you can also change the colour and or pattern of the header. You can also add in personal dates here as well which I find handy as they are all saved for next time you buy a planner- i.e. birthdays and anniversaries. You then add in your boxes at the bottom and there are lots to chose from- I like the dinners, things to do and workouts- I thought it might encourage me to actually work out if I schedule it in!
Once you’ve done all of that then you can pick your back pages. In this planner you have 48 pages that you can have at the back, I chose the year calendars, the lined pages and the world maps. Again, there are lots to chose from here including a class planner if you are a teacher!
Finally you can amend your opening page and that’s it! You’re good to go! They also come with a clear plastic wallet, ruler and stickers! Bonus!
I first got one of these planners when the big planning phase started and I looked in to getting a Kate Spade one or an Erin Condren planner which are super popular bt most of the time you have to import them and they end up costing a fortune! One of the great things about these planners is that they are really reasonably priced. This one cost £22.90 delievered. Check out Personal Planner here.
