A New Planner for A New Year!

If you’ve been reading my blog for more than a few months, you probably already know how much I love my Personal Planner.

I’ve used the A5 version of the Personal Planner for the last several years — and thanks to the many different customizable options, I’ve crafted it to perfectly fit my needs year after year.

The A5 has always been a great size for me — big enough, but not too big. However, many of you with bigger families, more to-dos, and more lists have asked if Personal Planner offers larger sizes….

And now… they do!

Personal Planner launched the new A4 size for their 2017 planners, and as you can see by the photos below, it’s quite a bit larger than my A5 planner.

The A4 is 8.2″ x 11.6″

The A5 is 5.8″ x 8.1″

.

The A4 planner would be ideal for keeping track of many different schedules and multiple to-do lists — there is ample room for “extras” too!

It’s the perfect size to fit inside a binder, briefcase, or laptop bag, and since the spiral binding allows it to fold in half, it still fits nicely on your desk, next to your computer.

Dave is very excited about the A4 planner as it’s almost the exact size he likes to use for school planning. He currently makes his own planners every summer, but he has already requested my help to customize an A4 planner next summer! (You can set up your Personal Planner to start in any month of the year, so we’ll make his school planner from August to August).

I’m still planning to use my A5 planner this year, but it’s nice to know I have options if I want a larger planner in the future.

If you’d like to know exactly how I set my planner up, you can read those details towards the bottom of this post.

And here’s a post I wrote last year about how I use my planner to simplify my days, weeks, months, and years.

    I have never looked at these planners before – i HAVE looked at othercompanies with more pricy products. This planner is amazing. I can see why you like it – it’s functional, economical and fun! If I don’t win the give-away, I believe I will be placing an order. Thanks for recommending a great product. This will be a nice upgrade from the free planner I picked up at my son’s orthodontist’s office 🙂

    The code isn’t working for me either. It’s 2:55 pm pst, so I realize that this may not be resolved today, but I’ll try again later. Thanks for sharing about these planners and arranging a deal for us!

    I purchased a planner the last time you posted about them in December with your promotional code. I also bought one for my mom for Christmas. We both love our planners!

    When I tried the code, it comes up “incorrect value code.” I am not sure why but am wondering if anyone knows how to remedy this?
