I. LOVE. PLANNERS.
There’s probably no one reading this who is really surprised by that statement! HA!
I really do love them! Over the years I’ve had a wide variety of planners…hardcover, softcover, no cover. I’ve used my phone, I’ve used my computer, I’ve used my email. I’ve even used a Palm Pilot! Remember those?!
What I’ve learned over the years is that I personally do BEST if I’m actually using a physical planner – putting pen to paper. And I’ve used a few different ones: Erin Condren, Plum Paper, Day Designer, Martha Stewart…one I found at Walmart…) I’ve learned that I like to be able to customize that planner a bit, and that if it’s PRETTY, I use it more. (That sounds ridiculous, but it’s totally true.)
So when Tamese from PurpleTrail contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing one of their planners…UM, YES! Sign me up, please!
Tamese provided me with a lovely little code that allowed me to hit up the PurpleTrail website and design my own planner. How FUN is that!? I must admit, at first I was a tad bit overwhelmed – the options seem endless, and I wasn’t quite sure where to start! But I stopped and wrote a few priorities down, and the next thing I know I had designed this:
I decided to try one a tad bit smaller than I normally use, because I’ve been on a simplification kick these days, so I figured, hey, if I can do a smaller planner, that’s awesome! This one is 6X8, but they also offer a larger one at 8.5X11, and a cute little one that’s only 4X6! You can customize each of these for daily, monthly or weekly uses for moms, students, teachers, brides, or just good ol’ regular people! (We all need some good ol’ regular people in our lives, don’t we?)
