I’m Ellen and I am a planner addict! Stationary and I have had a long term love affair but I am relatively new to the world of planners. Just before Aidan was born I realised that if I planned to have any sort of order to my life I would need to keep lists and written reminders – thus my planner addiction was born.
BUSY LIFE DIARY
I have had a Busy B planner every year since. Although this years one got savaged my a toddler around May! I love the busy life planners from Busy B. They are a week on two-page diaries but not in the format used by many others. The busy life planner has Monday to Sunday on each page of the two page spread meaning you can use one side for personal and the other for work – or however you choose. I usually put all our personal appointments and to-dos on the left and all my blog and youtube information on the right.
There are also side boxes for reminders. I use these for meal plans, shopping lists and blog post ideas.
Every year quarter has a pocket page to keep any important documents as well as a full grid page for reminders or important dates. Other useful pages included are a month at a glance pages at the beginning, notes and contacts at the back. The planner has an elastic strap and a pen holder to keep it all that little bit neater.
Every year I vow to get a family calendar but I never do so I am so excited to finally have one for 2017. The Busy B family calendar is perfect for a family – obviously! It has columns for 5 different people with a sixth one for birthdays and holidays. Each month has a pocket to keep relevant documents. The calendar also comes with a sticker sheet with cute stickers for birthdays, days off and several other multi-purpose ones.
Busy B has such a wide range of planners, diaries and stationary that you are bound to find something that will suit your lifestyle perfectly. They are a reasonably priced brand whose products are great quality. To see their full range and prices visit busyb.co.uk
