My Life | Plum Paper Planner Review


Anyone who knows me knows that I love to be organised. I write things down everywhere. I have lists for absolutely everything and I will make records of things wherever I can. All of this meaning my planner is essential. It comes with me everywhere I go.

For 2016, I really wanted to upgrade and treat myself by splashing out on a planner! For the last few years I've used cheaper ones and whilst they've done the job, I wanted more! The Plum Paper Planners had caught my eye as far back as April and I couldn't wait to get my hands on one.


Toted as a cheaper alternative to the Erin Condren planner (which is relatively difficult to get hold of in the UK), the Plum Paper Planner's caught my eye because of their cute covers, personalisable options, add ons and their rave reviews! The fact they are readily available on Etsy also really helped me out because it meant I knew I could get it shipped over here!
My front cover, complete with monogram and name!
I decided I wanted to order one months ago and I finally allowed myself to at the beginning of November, just after my birthday. In all honesty it has taken me months to choose a cover design. Even then I changed my mind at the last minute! I'm very specific when it comes to layouts I like so choosing that aspect out of the 4 options Plum Paper offer was no issue. I also ordered the fitness add-on pages to [hopefully!] keep me motivated throughout 2016.

One of the things I was most impressed with was that my planner arrived in the UK within two weeks of me ordering it. Considering each design is personalised, it needs to be printed and put together and shipped thousands of miles, I couldn't believe it! I was expecting it to take up to 4 weeks.
Monthly Pages
The planner itself is beautiful. It feels really sturdy and the pages are easy to right on. The different months are colour coded and I LOVE the opening page of each month where you can list birthdays, special events and things to remember, as well as space to set 3 goals for the month. Then there is a monthly view before turning the page to your weekly views. I chose the layout set out in hourly increments. The only complaint about the whole planner that I have is that the times only go up to 8pm - I would have liked them to go a little bit further in to the evening!

There are spaces all throughout the planner for making notes. At the back there is a section for contacts, passwords, important dates and two folders for keepsakes. The dimensions also mean Erin Condren stickers (which are a really popular feature) fit perfectly in to the Plum Paper planner - should you want that option! There is so much room for writing different things - you could never run out!

Week view (Option 2: Hourly Increments)

The Fitness planner is brilliant. It's got 12 monthly pages to track weight loss, measurements, fitness goals, highs and lows as well as notes of any rewards you give yourself! You can also track the specific exercise you do on a day-to-day basis as well as your water intake. For an extra £3 - it was a no brainer.

At the back of the planner
The planner itself was £20 ($31) and Etsy charged £12 for shipping to the UK which is quite steep in comparison to other places but given the time and condition it arrived in I'll take it.

Fitness Add - On
They are worth Every.Single.Penny!!! I honestly cannot wait to start using it every day. If you are looking for a 2016 planner, I cannot recommend Plum Paper enough.
