The Paper Files | 2 - ban.do

Today I'm sharing the new beauty in my life, a 17-month ban.do planner. I know the year isn't over and I still have many more months on the Kate Spade planner but I couldn't help myself. The plan is to use the KS planner until the end of the year and start the ban.do planner next year but I doubt i'll be able to contain myself haha! I like the idea of 12+ months added to planners but I think that only works for people who aren't obsessed with paper/planners. For those of us who are obsessed, it kind of breaks our heart that so many pages go to waste entersadfacehere This will be a heavy picture post and I cannot apologize for it because PAPER! Haha!

Let's break this planner down a bit.. it's 17 months, starting Aug. 2015 to Dec. 2016. This year they are carrying the small planner (5.5 in. x 8.5 in.) like before and a new large spiral-bound planner (8 in. x 10 in.) with a beautiful floral print similar to the small planner. The small planner comes in three colors.. White & Gold, a beautiful floral print and a pink one with the words 'I am very busy' on the cover. The first thing that caught my attention with this planner was that it has a pocket in the back. I like the idea of putting random notes or snail mail stamps in there and knowing that it's safe. There are random inspirational quotes and funny compliments that will definitely put a smile on your face. Another thing that caught my eye is how colorful the pages are. The first page of every month is so colorful and creative that I'm sure they would work perfectly in some scrap pages once I'm done with it. Every month also has two pages of notes for those things you just have to remember. Stickers, did I mention these yet? Yes, stickers are included & they are freaking awesome! I'll probably end up hoarding & never using them because that's what you're supposed to do, right? Haha! Color coded monthly tabs, elastic band closure, really cool holidays, a secret girl code and even great tips for weekend activities.

Now you know I love Kate Spade but ban.do suits me better. It's colorful, loud, hilarious and in the perfect price range for me! $20 for the small and $28 for the large. Not to mention all the other goodies they have for sale like pens, sticky notes, greeting cards, pencil pouches and so much more.

Alright, let's move on to what you came for..
