Plum Paper Planner Review + Giveaway!!

**This was not a paid post. The products mentioned below have been provided by Plum Paper for the review & giveaway free of charge however my honest opinions were used. The opinions expressed below are solely my own & they may vary from others.**


I like to keep organized lists because I am not a person who is able to remember all of the important dates, appointments, etc that I have through out the month off the top of my head. When looking for new planners to use I like to look for planners that offer a great layout and plenty of space to create to do lists, write out event information and notes. I recently came upon a company called Plum Paper who offers a selection of planners, notebooks and more that can all be customized.



I was offered the chance to review one of their twelve month planners and was able to use their website to create the perfect planner for me. The website is very simple to navigate, the first step is just deciding on which size & layout you'd like, I went with the 7" x 9" planner with the notes and dates layout. If you are unsure about any of the options they have it to where you can preview everything before making your final decision which is a fantastic site feature. Next you'll pick out the cover design you want, they offer nine different sections such as floral and repeat shapes with over seventy designs to select from. The front cover can be customized several different ways, you can add a photo or text. For my cover I went with the turquoise butterfly pattern with the year in the top corner and added a Disney quote to the bottom.




Next up in the process is customizing the interior of your planner! You'll be able to adjust the layout of the pages, select the month you'd like your planner to start/end in and select the binding you want. The last step in the creating process is to select add-on pages if you'd like them, they offer a large variety of extra pages including to do lists, wedding planning pages, meal plan pages, budget planner and tons more. I opted for the to do list pages and a blog pages section for my planner.

 


My planner arrived significantly quicker than I expected, considering that several aspects of the planner were customized.The cover is pretty sturdy on it's own being both water proof and tear proof, but to add an extra level of insurance they also included a clear plastic cover on the front and the back of the planner to protect it from harm. For being a pretty hefty planner (about two inches thick due to the add-ons I selected) it is surprisingly light and easy to bring with me on a day to day basis. Each month starts off with a section to write goals, birthdays,events, and things to remember followed by a lined page for notes. It also includes a calendar for the month, plus each week has it's own section of pages for more notes and reminders. I do wish I had selected a different add-on instead of picking the blogging section because although it is extremely helpful I have a separate book I like keeping my blogging notes in and I don't see myself using this section as much, but that was my own mistake not Plum Paper. For the planner I selected and the add-ons I selected the total of my planner came out to $47.50, the planner itself is a base price of $32 and the add-on's range in price from $3 to $12.50. I've had several planners in the past but they usually end up torn up or dirty because I am constantly carrying it around with me, but I don't see that happening with this planner because of how well made everything is. I am very happy with this planner and I look forward to using it over the next year.
