Plum Paper Planner Review + discount code for you!
I was just talking to some friends this morning about being unorganized so far this summer and having a hard time getting motivated. Then planners came up and it reminded me that I have been meaning to share all of this with you! I need help being motivated. Im an incredibly lazy person and having things written out and planned helps me. (also getting up early + getting something done right away helps too)
Anyway, I am so excited because its that time of year where I get to order a new planner! I love having all the big things written out in front of me and knowing whats coming. I also just got the boys school calendar in the mail and the crazy person inside me was so excited to already be able to write down the first day of school, spring break and even the end of the year parties! Back in the day I used to color code it all and make it super pretty.. I dont have time for that now so I just enjoy having a planner thats pretty instead!
This isnt the first time Ive written about planners. So you all know this already. I also know so many of you are the same too! Ive gone through a handful of planners and love them all for different reasons. If you want a huge crazy organized and pretty one, Erin Condren is great. If you want a tiny compact one the the May Planner is great - it goes straight in your purse easily. But if you want one that is a mix of all of them without the price of an Erin Condren planner .. I think I found the one for you!
This is the regular life planner from Plum Paper. Their store is on Etsy. They have a handful of designs: family planners, teacher planners, meal planners, wedding & fitness planners. They also have a ton of different options for the way you can do your weekly view.
The covers are a great quality. It will definitely hold up without bending! There are so many options to customize them.
The options are endless. For example on mine, I took the monogram off and changed the font of how my name was written. You can also add a family picture to the cover. It would've taken me years to pick which picture I wanted so I went without one.
Here are some pictures of my cover:
Here you can see how they have a protective cover
here is the back:
For the weekly view there are a lot of options too. You could do it broken down by "morning, afternoon & evening" or broken down in 30 minute increments or broken up with just lines (what I did) or even just lined pages behind the month instead of a weekly view too.
Here are some pictures of the planner inside:
They add lots of little extras in the planner too:
There are also a ton of extra pages to just write down notes are whatever you need.
Plum paper also has lots of great add ons: extra pages, stickers, checklist pages or you could even add extra months.
I like the metal binding and that the month tabs are thick and sturdy and wont bend. I like that the monthly view is on two pages so I have plenty of room to write everything out. And on the weekly view there are so many options and a checklist at the bottom where I can write out our meals. I really like the colors on all their planners too. Its definitely much more my style.
I especially really like that you can start the planner at any month. So I ordered mine in May and had it start in June. Want a new planner but dont need one until August? You can do that! Or want one in January? Again, do it now and take advantage of the discount they offered!
So FOR ALL OF YOU Plum Paper has offered you a discount for the next month! Just use the Plum Paper Coupon Code: BROOKE10 for a 10% off your order. This code is good for one month so hurry up and grab it before its gone! And as always feel free to let me know if you have questions! I'll happily answer whatever I can from my experience!
