If you know me at all then you will know that I love nothing more than to be organised and I like to achieve this by writing endless amounts of lists and using calendars and diaries. I have lists of my lists. I am a huge stationary hoarder so the more planners etc I have, the better.
I was asked if I would like to review a new planner by Stick To Stigu. Obviously I jumped at the chance. At the moment I write ideas and schedules for my blog in a notepad or on various scraps of paper, so I thought this planner could be used as my blog planner. I think when juggling a personal life and a blogging life, it's easier to have two separate planners to remain more organised.
When the planner arrived I instantly liked it. I really liked the fact that it was a paperback as hardback planners are often too heavy and don't mould well in to a handbag etc. I loved the size of the planner too. I have rather large teddy bear writing so I need a bigger planner to accommodate that. You can also tear the corner off the bottom of the page. This is great as it'll act as a sort of page marker as you can instantly get to the page you require.
I love the quirkiness of this planner, which is what I think makes it stand out from others. It's a few different things in one. It's a planner, a calendar, a notebook, a diary and a to do list maker. It also has different themes each month with lots of inspirational facts and quotes.
The layout consists of a blank page on the left hand side (which is a handy place to write a to do list, notes for the week or blog post ideas). On the right hand side is the diary, which consists of grids. I think this is a great feature as for each day of the week you have 5 grids. I could use this to manage my blog and social media for the day. For example one box could be for twitter actions, one for Facebook actions etc. If you were using this as a normal everyday diary the grids could be made into times of the day or you could use one for each member of your family.
Overall, I can't recommend this Planner enough to anyone who is looking to organise their life. The possibilities with it are endless. I was hoping to show you pictures of how I will be using it but at the moment I may be booking a last minute holiday for early January so I don't want to write the wrong things in there (told you I was a little OTT with organising lol).
Do you use a planner or calendar or do you rely on your phone for organising your life?
