Personal-Planner: A Review & A Giveaway

Are you an organisation freak? I am. I like to plan every aspect of my days, to make sure that everything gets done when its supposed to. For me this even means scheduling time to do nothing. Otherwise I never get any time to do nothing much less everything else I have to do.

So I was intrigued when the lovely people at Personal-Planner approached me. They've just launched in the Australian market, and they want to give one of my readers one of their fabulous products!

After having a little play with their planner creator, I am hooked. The level of detail available for customisation is awesome. No matter what planner I've bought before, there are always things I don't use, and features I want that I kind of work around. 

With this planner creator, you can factor in x4 different features that you want included each week. My sister who will be starting her first full time teachers role this year loved that she could customise this to use for her classes, although she would have liked to have fit more than 4 on the week to allow for all her classes. The gym junkie next door liked that she could include her workout schedule.

Me personally, I like that I can include a graph, as well as the more standard To Do and List features, because I would use it at work to track my daily results.


Every aspect of the picture above was customisable. The header colour, the lining and colour of the week, the features down the bottom, EVEN the colour of the ruler! This will end up being a completely personal planner, suited to my tastes and needs. Love it.

My favourite feature over all is that I could insert colouring pages or sheet music at the end of the planner. I never use the addresses book feature in my planners - that's what phones are for. But with this planner I can add some colouring in pages to keep Lolly busy if we are out and about. Brilliant!

Want to know what's even better? It doesn't have to start January 2013. And since we are already part way through the month, you could start your planner for February 2013, or even just set up a 2014 planner. So no wastage.

So who wants to win their very own planner? Personal-Planner will be giving one lucky reader a voucher for $45, which will get you the BIGGEST planner with postage included!

Let's be 100% clear. I will receive a planner along with my reader for hosting this giveaway. My opinions are my own, and I wouldn't bother to waste blog space on it if I didn't think it was a cool product.

  14. I love that I could choose whatever I liked for the cover, rather then settling for something that's just "ok".
    And Sudoku, who doesn't want Sudoku in their planner, right?!

  15. As boring as this is I love the fact that through planning my own planner I can leave ruled lined pages at the back. Perfect for a teacher to take notes at meetings and on student's progress. russellcathryn at yahoo dot com.au

  23. I love the little modules you can alter at the bottom of each page.

  24. I love the To Do lists because I always have so much 'to do'!
    However, I think being able to design my own personalised front cover would be the feature I'd love the most. The Peronalised Planner would allow me to express my individuality :)
