I am a list maker. Oh how I love that little check mark or line through that completed task. The feeling of accomplishment brings me pure joy. Because I am a list maker, the best part of each day is opening my day planner to see what task lie ahead of me. Now, finding a day planner to suite my particular style is quite a task. I am super picky. It has to be vertical, customizable, functional and above all else, it must be pretty!! I can’t walk around with a brown day planner.
2015 I bought the Erin Condren planner for the first time. I just remember thinking, “This is too much money for a day planner.” But I bought it anyway. After the first 6 weeks I just did not enjoy it. The coil always got in my way on Wednesday. This year I ordered from a different company. I am not going to name them because I had to get the Better Business Bureau involved before I received my products. Bad taste in my mouth. As well as the same problem with Wednesday. Stupid Coil! I went to the local office supply store and got a different planner. “Hated It!”
Finally I decided to do my research. In the process I came across the website me & my BIG ideas. First off, that name is hilarious! It is something I always say about myself. I also watched a few YouTube videos on how versatile this planner was. I new this was the planner for me. The planner is disk bound instead of coil. This would seem like a big problem, but it is not. You can remove the pages without tearing them. What?! The covers are also interchangeable and you can add pockets and/or folders. This planner can be whatever you want it to be. It is freaking awesome! I choose the Botanical Garden design. I got to use a 40% off coupon at my local Hobby Lobby. Score!!!
I love my planner.
