I try to be as organized as I can be in my everyday life. This means having a calendar of some sort sitting on my desk, opened at all times so I can see what needs to be paid or what appointments I may have that week. Here is the cute Yorkshire Terrier calendar my Mom bought me this year. I love Yorkies if you didn’t know.
Until recently I had never heard of Plum Paper Designs. I am a member of several different Facebook groups, one of which a question regarding planner type and brands. After careful consideration for what would be the perfect planner for her, she decided to purchase a Plum Paper Planner. This sparked me to take a peek at the two main planners spoken of in her post. Like her, I feel in love with the layouts and optional add-ons available through Plum Paper Designs.
After a few hours I too purchased a Plum Paper Planner from Plum Paper Designs. If you are wondering, it does not take hours to build your planner. I just couldn’t decide on the add-ons that I wanted. Another hard choice was the many covers to choose from. I narrowed down my likes to three and took my time on deciding the perfect cover for myself.
After selecting my cover, I had to decide when I wanted my planner to start. As you may have noticed it is June and I am ordering a planner. Ideally when you purchase a planner you want to begin using it right away. One of the best options with Plum Paper Planners is selecting your start month and adding extra months to your planner. I chose to start my planner in July and create an 18 month planner. When creating an 18 month planner I was limited to the number of add-ons or pages that I can have built into my planner but that was okay.
Here is what I purchased for my custom made Plum Paper Planner.
My planner is a 12 month regular planner with an extra 6 months added. I was able to select between four different layout options for my pages. I chose option 3, daily lined columns. This should give me plenty of room to keep track of my bills, appointments, and things to do.
My planner is 7.5” x 9” and includes:
- Personalized cover with name and date
- Clear plastic cover
- Monthly laminated tabs
- Week, month, and year-at-a-glance pages
2 Notes pages per month
- Contacts and password page
- Holiday’s for the year page
- 2 Sided pocket folder
My optional add-ons include:
- Home planning section which includes:
- 5 things to remember pages
- 2 monthly bill pages
- 2 cleaning pages
- 2 monthly goals pages
- 1 password page
- 4 shopping list pages
- 2 gift list pages
- 1 two page spread sheet for monthly expenses
- 4 project to do list pages
- 2 important home contact pages
- Blog planning section which includes:
- 12 monthly blog overview pages
- 1 monthly blog stats page
- 1 two page spread for an annual blog planner
- 1 monthly blog task page
- 2 post ideas pages
- Blog to do list page
- 2 giveaway and review contact pages
- 2 advertising and sponsors contact page
- Six additional months
- Extra checklist pages
I also ordered 4 sticker sheets.
Each planner is customized just for you after placing your order. Planners are custom made to order, which can take 3 – 4 weeks. I ordered June 10 and have since begun ordering accessories such as stickers to assist with my daily planning. After searching Etsy for a few days I found a shop that I loved, Paper Loving Mommy. Nearly all her stickers were just right for my daily planning needs to start with. I placed all of the stickers I wanted in my favorites and slowly began selecting the one’s I would need to begin with when my planner arrives.
There are tons of other shops on Etsy that also have a wonderful selection of stickers and accessories for your planner. I have added lots of items from others shops to my favorites to order in the near future. I am so glad I was able to find just enough stickers to get me started from one shop.
It has now been two weeks since I placed my order for my first ever Plum Paper Planner and I am so eager for the “your item has shipped email”. I really do feel like a small child at Christmas. I have always had some type of calendar/ planner but this is seriously a whole new world.
