Weekend Giveaway: 2012 Planner {10 winners!}

posted by Andrea | 11/25/2011

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed.

Remember a couple weeks ago when we had a REALLY fun giveaway from Invite L.? I gave away some of their amazing Bag-in-Bags, yearly planners, and other accessories…

Well today, I’m back with another fantastic giveaway from the same company!

Since the New Year is just FIVE weeks away {yes 5}, you probably should be thinking about purchasing a new planner, or a refill for the planner you already have — you DO have a planner, right?

However, since I know many of you are way too busy doing your holiday shopping and recovering from a huge Thanksgiving meal; I thought I would make it really easy on you and give you an opportunity to win one of the best planners I’ve ever used.

Sound good?

I am currently using the Invite L. Agenda — and absolutely LOVE everything about it!

  • I love the size {not too small, but not too big}.
  • I love the bright yellow color.
  • I love the clean, simple lines.
  • I love that there are no preset dates so I can start the year whenever it’s convenient for me.
  • I love the daily list of times so I can quickly and easily schedule meetings or other appointments.
  • I love ALL the blank space below the daily list of  times where I can put to-dos or reminders for each day.
  • I love the monthly at-a-glance calendars for each month.
  • I love the large “notes” section in the back.

I could go on and on — but after using this planner for a while now, and realizing how top-quality all the Invite L. products are, I’m simply thrilled to be hosting today’s giveaway!

Oh, and you should seriously take a look at their new 2012 planner… gorgeous!

    I like you on facebook and follow you on pinterest. I could use a nice planner and keep all my “junk” in one spot. Right now I scribble on various calendars and sometimes use my phone memo pad. It is not all in one spot.

    On paper, I use your blank daily planner printable (love it!) and a very plain, basic, printable monthly calendar. (I keep meaning to laminate them or put them in frames so I can reuse them with dry-erase markers, but I never seem to get around to it, so I just reprint on both sides of the paper.) Anything beyond that month gets scribbled in the margins of the monthly calendar and transferred when I switch months. I also put things in Outlook so I can set pop-up reminders on the computer.

  8. Najwa


    I usually use my phone’s calendar

  9. Michelle Kornoelej


    I use my phone & a main calendar on a magnetic board in the back entry….think I’ve posted everywhere now!

    This planner looks great!

  12. Stacey


    I just use a little notebook planner and a wall calendar.

    Because my husband is in retail sales and I am visually impaired we use a large dry erase calendar that I made myself, but gluing florist tape to our existing 2 x 3 white board with a glue stick. It allows us to look at 5 weeks at a time. For events that are further off, I write them on a regular wall calendar and transfer them to the white board when the time comes.

    I used to use a filofax type of notebook ALL the time ever since I was 12! This year I went digital with my ipod touch calendar, but I really miss writing things with different color pens. I’m kind of office supply obsessed!!

  15. Mindy Chorn-Howland


    I use a white board and it is not very organized! Ugh!!

  16. Heather


    I use my head, but since I have pregnancy brain, it’s not working too well. I need something to write everything down!

  19. Julie H.


    I use a small 2-year pocket calendar to keep track of things right now, but these planners look waaaay better. Thanks for the great giveaway!

    Right now I use Google Calendar and A Home Organization Binder. Both work pretty well for me, but I’m always looking for ways to better keep track of our daily life.

  21. Sara Christner


    I’m already a Simple Organized Living “liker” on FB. I would love a sweet new planner for 2012…who doesn’t love a new planner? Hope you are doing well today…just take it one day at a time, especially early on.

  22. Raquel


    I use a combination of a written planner and a smart phone app. I love that there is room for notes, accomplishments and lists n the planner. Congrats on the arrival of your precious baby!

    I have a planner now but these look great!
