If you’re anything like I am, you are always on the lookout for the next best thing when it comes to planning. Whether it is for my business, blog, kids, or personal life, a new planner always piques my interest. The ladies over at Bailey Craft Planners were kind enough to send me over a Simply Yours Day Planner to test drive. And what a smooth ride it was!
I’d first heard about the Simply Yours Day Planner from another blogger. She was doting on about how well-constructed it was – top on my list of planner attribute must haves. I’ve had my share of planners where after a few months the binding busts or the covers peel and damage too easily. My planner is my best friend. I take it with me everywhere (“it traveled with me to Hong Kong” everywhere).
When my planner arrived at my doorstep, I was so excited!
I examined the covers and binding inside and out and they look pretty tough. The covers’ corners are reinforced with metal, so as to not ding up easily – nice! The binding is hard core…it isn’t bending.
The first interior page can be personalized – so cute 🙂
And then we get into the meat and potatoes of the planner. What’s nice is that you can start the planner from any month you’d like – you aren’t stuck to the traditional January – December calendar. I started mine in April and it runs all the way through March 2017. Here are some of the interior pages:
Now you may think that my planner pages look a bit blah compared to all of the washi tape and sticker planner lovers out there. I love the whole washi movement with the colorful patterns and such but I have ZERO time to get involved – and I know that if I get started with it, it will be like my scrapbooking phase where I had to have every embellishment, paper, and Cricut machine with cartridges. It wasn’t normal.
I love my markers – Le Pen and the erasable Frixion from Pilot – and I like that I can write with practically any marker and it doesn’t bleed onto the back of the page. The markers give me just the right amount of color I need on the pages – and it keeps them neat and clean.
What’s even nicer is that Bailey Craft Planners is allowing me to give away one of their super fabulous Simply Yours planners!!
