Truth be told, I am actually a very lazy writer. That is, I am not much for handwriting. If it can be typed or photographed, then I am not breaking out pen and paper for it. Still, that does not stop me from liking and acquiring numerous planners throughout the years. For 2014, I got this planner (as planned in one of my prior posts) a few weeks back:

Everything Is Possible planner

I got it from National Bookstore for P598. A bit expensive if you ask me, but still not quite as expensive as a Starbucks planner. πŸ˜‰ Anywho, it’s worth it with the colorful hardbound cover, decent quality paper and all the extra features. It’s really geared for the goal-setter–or at least those wanting or trying to be one. Aside from the requisite calendar and itinerary pages, there’s a slew of goal-setting stuff at the beginning. I like that it makes even humongous goals seem easier by guiding you through the process of realistically attaining it and even working around perceived hindrances. The planner as a whole is just brimming with positivity and possibility. It makes me look forward to the coming year with a smile, knowing that Everything Is Possible. πŸ™‚

Still, much as I love this planner I am also collecting stickers for the 2014 Starbucks planner. Which, coincidentally, was also on my -BER Wishlist. πŸ˜‰ As of today, I have 13 stickers. Just 5 more to go: 1 core drink and 4 Christmas drinks (all of which would most probably be Peppermint Mocha Frappe). Plenty of time left before Christmas to complete them, and hopefully I won’t have to sprig for all the remaining drinks. *fingers crossed*

How about you, do you like planners too? Have you already got one (or more) for 2014? Do let me know! πŸ™‚

  1. I don’t usually buy expensive planners as I am quite stingy, i just use old notebooks. I think its high time i start one to manage my time and goals better, yes may be with inspiring quotes too para I won’t get lazy din, hehe. Mahanap nga yan.

    1. Go sis! πŸ™‚ Madali naubos to (along with the BDJ and Navi planner) sa National dito sa Batangas. Surprised me actually, akala ko ako lang nag-iinarte sa mga planner chu-chu dito sa probinsya. πŸ˜› Haha. Anywho, it’s got lots more features for goal-setting, tamad lang ako mag-enumerate but you can fine them here:

      Hope that helps! πŸ™‚ Oh, and since you’re in the metro, baka mas magustuhan mo yung original BDJ planner because of the included coupons (for products and services) worth almost P40k daw. πŸ˜€

  2. Belle de jour planners are really nice even if they are expensive. It’s worth the price! Especially this “Everything is possible” planner. Good luck to your 2014 planning sis! πŸ™‚

  3. Ohhh, I never saw this at National Bookstore here. Sana pala I requested this nalang from my Secret Santa. But I’m not complaining kasi I got a planner pa rin… the generic Executive Planner type pero I requested for the big one. Hehe! Time to organize myself since I tend to mix up deadlines lately. πŸ™‚ Merry Christmas, Nathalie!
