Competition – take control of your life and win a Unique Planner from Pirongs

Today’s post has not one but THREE parts to it! First up, I have a review from Bee of her planner from Unique Planner from Pirongs. Then we have a competition so you can win your own, PLUS we have a discount code, in case you just can’t wait. Woohoo!

First up, Bee..

Hey Youtubers!!!! 

Welcome to my new blog post all about plannerzzzzz. 

So recently I absolutely totally am OBSESSED with planners! Like seriously oh my god guys. 

No but in all seriousness, I did get a new planner and it is really good. I got it quite a while ago but then I went on holiday and then I moved house so I haven’t got round to writing about it but basically it’s a great planner and especially useful for me because I am a freelancer so I have to make sure I’m planning my time and remembering to do everything. 

Sure, you might be thinking, planners, yeah, great. But what is really special about this Unique Planner from Pirongs is that you get to completely design it yourself! Here’s a little video to get you in the mood before I show you mine:

They have loads of front cover and back cover designs that you can mix and match. I went for a white background with multicoloured pictures representing different seasons on which I really like because it means the design is timeless all year round, which is what you want really if you’re always showing people your awesome planner.

Another cool feature is that you get to choose the layout of the weekly planner pages. I went for a morning/afternoon/evening split going vertically down the page because I like to try and make sure that I leave room there for socialising and doing other things, so I try and leave the evening row for the fun. It’s also useful because if I’m doing something in the morning, I can put work in the evening row to make sure I’m not missing out on time I could be using. Unique custom panner Pirongs design your own planner

In the back, you can also put your own mix and match of customisable pages that you think you will use. I have a meal planning one, budgeting, birthday list, christmas present list and more. You can basically include as many as you want. I then also have a large notes section at the back because I’m always making lists and writing things down.

I don’t know how I would survive life without this planner. Since I have had it it has taken all of the stress out of planning my time and trying to get that work life balance. I just fill up the spaces with tasks to make sure my work is evenly distributed and then once I’m finished for the day, I can kick back with a puzzle knowing that tomorrow I will see everything I need to do right there in front of me. Sure, you can do that on your phone or your laptop, but there is something really satisfying about being able to physically tick something off on a page once you’ve done it.

P.S. from Bee: This is a little bit about me – if you would like to have your name featured in my planner, you should totally hire me to write something for you, or to manage your social media. I have a first class degree in creative writing so you know I’m good, and I charge way less than the owner of this blog who has a degree in economics(?!) so it just makes sense really doesn’t it. Go on. You know you want to be in the planner. 

We were sent Bee’s planner for the purposes of this review. UK competitions at ThePrizeFinder

    I think I need to get a daily spends section in my planner. That way I can keep track of those cheeky purchases and see how it adds up at the end of the week. Maybe the fact that I don’t do this is because I don’t want to see the reality lol.

    The life planner looks brilliant. I have some big changes to make in my life right now due to some health issues that have arisen that are going to require me planning so many things over the coming months.

  38. 27 July, 2016 / 11:29 am

    OK so you know when you don’t get involved with something because you know if you do, your life will be sucked away? That’s how I feel about planners. I know if I succumb, I’ll become obsessed. See also: Pokemon Go.

    But if I *did* have one, I’d include a wine tally, so I know how many glasses *cough* bottles I drink each week.

  39. Tracey Gwynne
    27 July, 2016 / 7:08 pm
