I finally decided that I will use a Starbucks 2011 planner after all simply because it’s the first one that became available to me.
I did not intend to get this one even if I participated in the sticker promo. For weeks, my choices were limited down to either a Moleskine 12-month weekly planner or The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s “The Giving Planner”. Thanks to my friends who snatched me to a Starbucks one midnight, I surrendered and got the metal colored planner.
For 2010, I’ve been using an orange faux croc skin planner I got from Marshalls two Thanksgivings ago. I looked it up online, in hopes of getting the same one for 2011, but it’s priced at $22 and it doesn’t include shipping yet, so I let go of the idea even though I really love the planner. I bought the one I’m using now for $4.99 only 😉
So now, I’m all set to plan my days for 2011 with yet another Starbucks planner. I’ve used theirs since 2005, with the exception of 2010. I didn’t regret it because this year’s didn’t appeal to me as it’s not lined and the vertical divisions per day wasn’t suitable for my wordy way of jotting down appointments.
What about you, do you keep a planner? What do you prefer to use next year?
