Getting Organised With My Personal Planner – Review and Competition

I have never been the most organised person but that’s something I wanted to change so I have been looking for a diary. I am quite fussy and couldn’t find anything I liked locally. Thankfully I came across something better than a diary! I found Personal Planners and have completely fallen in love with their planners.

The online ordering process is simple and pain free…

To make an order head to www.personal-planner.co.uk and click the ‘create your own’ button to get started. A new page will open where you can choose which size planner you would like. You can also see the price for each size – I love clear pricing.

Once you have chosen your planner size you can then design the front and back cover of your planner. You can choose to have a solid colour, upload your own picture or you can choose from several design templates. There is also the option to add two lines of text to the front page of your planner, I chose to have my name and the year. You can also choose which month and year you would like your diary to start and the colour of the elastic which is used to keep the planner together.

The next step is to create the inside of your planner. There is a lot of options available so take your time and make sure you choose what is right for you. You can have lined paper, striped, or timetabled. You can also add a weather, workout or work chart into your planner among others. You can also choose a colour and design for the header inside your planner.

You also have the option of what to have on the pages at the back of your planner. You can choose to have blank pages, sheets of music, colouring pages, notes, addresses, maps, sudoku pages, or an overview of the year. The possibilities are almost endless!

The last step is to enter your contact details into your planner in case it gets lost. Once you have confirmed everything is correct and you are happy with your planner you can place your order.

In total it took me around 20 minutes to create my Personal Planner. I chose a lovely design available on the website and chose a pink theme. I chose not to have birthdays printed in my planner but it is possible for this to be done for you – at no extra cost!

The planners take around 2 weeks from ordering to delivery, slight delays may be experienced during public holidays.


I decided to create my planner primarily as a blog planner to keep track of posts and deadlines etc. When my planner arrived I was instantly impressed by the look and quality of it. The planner looks smart and surpassed my expectations.

My planner is now with me all the time and I find myself constantly using it to keep track of blog projects, it has proved invaluable and I would be lost without it. I am already thinking about what design I would like for my 2014 planner!

The planners are very reasonably priced starting at £14.95 for a small planner through to £21.95 for a large planner. I would highly recommend Personal Planners to anyone who is looking for a diary/planner the quality, personalisation and price is phenomenal.

I am really excited to be able to offer one of my lovely readers the chance to win a Personal Planner in any size. A huge Thank You to Personal Planner for providing the prize!

Good Luck!

    A boring, cliche answer – Christmas Eve! For a very cliche reason – just find it so completely brilliantly exciting getting everything set up for my little ones to wake up to! 🙂
