If you know me, you’ll know that I’m super organised (well, try to be). I feel much better when I know what I’m doing, when I’m doing it and when everything is in order. I work better under organised conditions and being an active blogger and small business owner, it’s really important to me that I stay organised.
Last week, I realised that my current notebook and method for keeping myself and my business organised wasn’t working anymore. It was too messy, there wasn’t enough room to write everything down in a neat fashion and it didn’t make things easier for me. My mum picked me up a planner when we went to Tesco at the weekend – I said if she can find just any old cheap one that’ll do me until the end of the year, it would be fine. But what she came back with was the planner of my dreams. Cheap, yes. ‘Any old thing’, definitely not.
Firstly, I absolutely love the cover and the style of the whole thing. Whilst the inside is relatively plain; which is what I would want to give you the maximum amount of room to write in without there being any distractions, the outside is gorgeous; the exact colour and style I love. It’s pretty but simplistic and I love that.
Now, the reason for me wanting a planner was simply so I have enough room to write down everything I need to write, on the days I need to write it without cramming anything in. I can very easily do that with this because each day has a whole page dedicated to it but as I was flicking through, I found that there was so much more. From notable dates, travel information and useful websites. A tube map, currency conversion charts and personal information there is almost anything you’ll need.
Now like I said, my mum purchased this for me from Tesco but upon first glance, if I didn’t know it was from Tesco, I would have assumed it was from somewhere more like Cath Kidston or a company that specialises in planners or office supplies. I would have also assumed it was quite pricy – considering how much is included and how thick it is (slightly smaller than Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire!) £15? Maybe even £20. But this was five freaking quid. I literally couldn’t have asked for anything better value and of such good quality. Although I can’t find this specific planner on the Tesco website, if you’re after something of good value that’ll last you, it’s worth having a browse yourself or popping into your local shop!
