I ordered my Life Planner on September 26 and was awaiting for its arrival on October 11. I was beyond excited when I got home from work on Tuesday and found it on my doorstep. Yes, I was one of those kids who loved getting new school supplies at the end of the summer.
I loved the packaging and I even received free personalized gift tag stickers and a $10 off coupon for my next order
Lots of fun stickers to use such as birthdays, doctor's appointments, vacation, girls night, etc. as well as blank stickers to create your own
Perhaps one of my favorite parts of the planner is the Keep it Together folder and zippered pouch with extra personalized labels and cards
So here's what I love and don't love about the Life Planner:
Super cute....enough said
The free gift labels were a nice surprise
The outside covers are laminated in hard plastic so they won't bend easily or tear
Lots of space to write down stuff I need to do for work and personal commitments/events I have....there are 3 main sections: special dates, monthly view and the weekly view (Monday-Sunday)
I ordered it at the end of September and the planner included the rest of 2011 (Oct-Dec) as well as all of 2012
My current planner is always stuffed with extra papers and with the folder and zipper pouch, I'll be able to store these more carefully and be more organized
The price....it was $50 and with my 20% discount it brought it down to $40; however, shipping I believe was almost $8 so really my discount only covered the cost of shipping
The planner itself is a bit larger and heavier from what I currently use and more than I expected
The monthly tabs are only made of cardstock and not laminated like the cover and I'm afraid with wear and tear, they will eventually bend and rip....good news though, a lot of people are having this issue and I already found a solution from another blogger!
Even though it was expensive, I think the planner was well worth the money and I can't wait to sit down and switch everything from my old planner into this one.
