Confessions of a Planner Junkie

I’m–er, I mean, Kaye’s at it again.  In the planner community, people have been chattering about these cool new Recollections planner inserts that you can get at Michaels.  Well, we live about 90 miles from the nearest Michaels, but i managed to find them on a trip out of town a month ago.  They didn’t have two of the options (Budget and Fitness) but I got the rest to check out.  Okay, wait.  That’s not totally true.  There was one Budget booklet, but I had promised it to someone, so I don’t have one now.

These booklets are only 4.00 each.  And, they’re not year specific, so if you have trouble adjusting to it, you can make them work!  It’s genius.

One thing I love about these is that you can EASILY cut the spines off and have them coil bound.  Wouldn’t be very expensive to do and it WOULD be a perfect solution for the one thing I do NOT like about the system.  That binder.  Oh, my.  They sell covers for it.  I didn’t like any that they had.  So, I decided not to buy one.  If I was keeping this and planned to use the binder, I’d absolutely decoupage the cover with cool scrapbook paper or something.  Maybe something that looks like newsprint or leather.  coolio.

They sell all kinds of accessories to go with them.  Stickers, magnetic clips, notepads–the works.  The only accessory I didn’t like was the magnetic clip.  It’s pretty pathetic.  They sell adorable stamps to go with them, but I’ve heard they come out like a blob.  I didn’t buy them, so I can’t verify that.

So, if you’ve wanted to try out a planner system, just leave a comment and let me know which one you’ve been most interested in trying.  If you don’t know one, then tell me if you think you’d prefer a page a day or a week on two pages.  😀  Winner will receive everything shown above.  🙂

I’ll try to draw sometime within the week. 🙂  Feel free to comment again and let me know that you shared on Facebook, tweeted, or pinned this giveaway.  I’ll give an extra entry for each.  🙂
