Plum Paper Planner

...Say that 5 times fast. Ready? GO.

If you actually tried, we should be friends.

I'm a little late to the game with this post since the year has already begun, but I'm so totally in love with my newest Etsy purchase that it'd be a crime not to share.

As you've learned by now if you've paid any attention to my previous posts, I am a planner. To-do lists make me smile, checklists make me giddy and calendars are my BFF. #nerdalert.

In college, I couldn't live without my planner. It held meetings, classes, homework, notes, special dates, even cocktail ideas. I loved it for its functionality but it was U-G-L-Y. Once I graduated, I drifted away from my DayMinder, but always missed the appeal of having everything laid out for me. I tried to go back a few times, but was never successful in the long run and was bored with the layout and features.

This year, in my attempt to prioritize and de-stress my life a bit, I was determined to find the perfect planner. Enter: Plum Paper Designs on Etsy.

After browsing a few other options, Plum Paper won me over. I chose this 2013 planner. Its playful yet simple design is drool-worthy and its functionality is wonderful.

My apologies for the crappy quality photos, I promise the colors
are amazing in real life.

Here are a handful of my favorite features:
  • 2013 and 2014 full calendar snapshot at the front and back
  • Plenty of "Notes" pages for those top-of-mind thoughts, blog ideas, workouts, etc.
  • Monthly calendar snapshot
  • Weekly layout pages
  • Size - not too big and not too small (7.5" x 9")
They are a bit pricey ($30 ea. + $10 shipping), but not by much in comparison to your generic alternative. I think that it's worth it to go with something that you'll love and love to use.

  1. This might just rival your planner and I cannot wait until 2014 to get my hands on this one. You can do all the customization for the exterior and take it one step further - upload photos for personalized stickers!
