Planner Organization: Passion Planner

I apologize for the delay of this blog post! Life has been a little bit crazy lately. Anyways, I am really excited to introduce this planner, the Passion Planner! It is probably one of the best planners I have ever used. First a quick disclaimer. Passion Planner was kind enough to send me two planners (one small and one large) for me to review, but I am not receiving monetary compensation for this blog post. I will not benefit from you clicking any of the links in this post.

Plum Paper planner

Planner Organization: Plum Paper Planner

Hello! I’m so excited to release this review on the Plum Paper Planner. Plum Paper is often compared to Erin Condren as a more budget friendly planner. First off, a disclaimer, I did not receive this planner for free. However I did receive it at a discount and they threw in one of their small perfect bound notebooks for free. I do not benefit from writing this post for the company. All opinions are my own. Continue reading “Planner Organization: Plum Paper Planner”

Disclaimer: I was sent this planner for free, but all thoughts are my own, honest, opinion. I do not benefit if you decide to purchase this planner.

Woo hoo! Are you ready for the first planner organization post of the season?! Well, here goes.

First off, one of the best things about this planner company is that some of their proceeds go to A21. A21 is a campaign against human trafficking.

Further Review of the Horacio Printing Planner

Quality

The Horacio Printing Planner is good quality overall. The paper is thick so your pen doesn’t bleed through. I’d say it is about a cardstock thickness. The cover is beautiful, however, the gold foil is easily scratched, and the black stays smudgey. This isn’t a huge turn off for me, but for those of you who like to keep a really clean and beautiful planner, it might bug you some. My thought is that you could probably put clear contact paper over the cover to protect it. Let’s talk about the coil…this is not the kind of coil that Plum Paper and Erin Condren. It’s one of those ones that has a piece the pages can’t go past. I hope they are able to change this to the coils on the EC and Plum Paper. But again, the quality overall is pretty good.

Usability

The coil does make the usability of the planner a little difficult. However, the simplicity of the pages allows a lot of flexibility in the way you can plan, which makes it more user friendly.

Little Touches

I love the attention to detail put into this planner. The bible verses in the corner. Area for weekly intentions… and several pages that encourage spiritual growth. This is the perfect planner for a new Christian college student that is going off on their own for the first time.

 

How I Used the Horacio Printing Planner

As you can see in the image above (and below), this planner is more for the minimalist planner. I included my work schedule and a to do list when I needed to. I loved the weekly intentions area for general tasks, things that didn’t need to be done on a specific day. The simplicity of the planner allows the use of various kinds of washi tape, sticky notes, and stickers if you want to!

Thanks again Horacio Printing for sending me your planner!
