October’s theme was “Very Busy Planning.” Are we getting a new planner? I sure hope so!
So Very Busy Planner by TF Publishing ($8). Oh yes! A brand new planner! This one is dated September 2017 to December 2018, which is what I prefer, it helps with the overlap between 2017 and 2018. I don’t like when they start in July, that is way too early, so this one is perfect. I love all the little bees on the soft and textured cover.
It’s a monthly planner with each month over two pages and enough room to write down pretty much everything, except your meals! I like seeing a month at a glance, but so few planners have so much room! It’s a 7.5″ x 10.25″, a great size to slip it in a binder, or in a 8.5″ x 11″ notebook. I really like the simplicity of this planner.
Weekly Desk Pad by TF Publishing ($6). But if you really need your weekly spread, this desk pad will be your next best friend! It’s undated, 8.5″ x 8.5″, perfect to be used as a mouse pad, while keeping your to do lists and appointments in sight. I always wanted to have a weekly planner, either desk pad or in a notebook, but most of them have tiny teeny space to write, or have hours already set up. I hate planners with hours, as my day usually starts at 9 and ends at midnight, which NO planner has ever acknowledged! I use the upper half for planning, and the bottom for to-do lists, travel plans, incoming boxes, etc.
An other thing I really like is the column for Sat/Sun. I work 6 days a week, and for once, I can use a full column for the sixth day and not a tiny teeny space like most planners! There’s sixty sheets in the pad, good enough to cover November 2017 to December 2018!
Totally Adorable Sticker Book ($8). 12 pages of cute stickers for different occasions, be it paying your bills, working out, partying or entertainment.
They are fun, colorful, and they have an autumn feel to them.
And it’s always nice to get some cute but functional accessories for our planners!
Gem Stone White Out. Perfect to erase a cancelled appointment! I don’t usually use whiteout, either in liquid or tape form, but this one is cute and the cover doesn’t fall off easily, keeping the tape safe from dust.
Candy Color Highlighter 5pcs set. I really like the case, it’s flat when closed. The flap keeps your pens neatly in, or keeps the case lift up to get a better access to the pens.
This was a fun box from Busy Bee Stationery. I really like that they chose a Planner theme for October, I’m so happy with my new cute Bee Planner! The Desk Pad will hep me stay on track with everything I need to do in my week, and the stickers are fun. My only complaints is that I feel that for the price of the box, one or two items were missing to get the value of the box.
