Personal Planner

We’ve only just become a family of six and I can already tell life is pretty busy with such a ‘big’ family. Daddy at work, twins at kindy on some days yet not on others, hospital appointments and post-natal checkups, immunisations and much more, it is hard to keep track of it all. My memory could really use a hand so a new diary/planner was in order, perfect timing with the year only just starting. Instead of settling for a mass produced planner that is full of stuff that doesn’t apply to our family I created my very own customised Personal Planner.

Personal PlannerThe Personal Planner concept is super simple and very clever at the same time. Just visit the Personal Planner website and use the easy design tool to put together your ideal planner, full of all the stuff you want and without all the useless bits you never use anyway. You can choose from different sizes (from handbag size to desk size), colours, covers, layout, components and much more, so that you end up with a planner that suits you and your family perfectly.

I designed my Personal Planner to start in January but you can start any month you like (Yay, no more wasted months!) and you can even pre-fill all your special dates and birthdays to be printed in your new planner. I decided on the smallest size so I can stick it in my nappy bag and it turned out great. With one week on 2 pages I can easily see what’s on for everyone which is very handy. I love all the extra options for the final pages, eg. colouring-in pages, Sudoku puzzles, sheet music, addresses, how cool is that?

Personal PlannersFrom start to finish it took me maybe 10 minutes to create my own design and place my order, but if I hadn’t been so indecisive about all the colours and cover options it would have been a lot quicker. I really enjoyed putting it together and I think it makes a great gift idea with a personal touch. Usually it takes around 3 weeks for your Personal Planner to be printed and delivered and shipping is included in the price.

Planner prices range from $35 for the smallest size up to $45 for the biggest size (A5).
