Today kicks off a two week long planner review series. I just posted a huge, epic video reviewing tweleve different planners to help you decide which one will work best for you in 2017. First up is the Ashley Shelly Planner.
This planner screams student. It's set up perfectly to help guide routines and habits while providing plenty of room for class schedules and to do lists. The weekly spread is perfect to write down homework assignments and upcoming events. The monthly view is lined which makes writing in overview information super simple and easy.
One of the most interesting features of this planner is the page before each month. It gives you a space to write your ideas, negative things you want to avoid, a monthly bucket list, and ultimately helps you figure out how you want the next month to go. It reminds me a lot of how bullet journals operate without having to make the page yourself. Always nice for us artistically un-inclinded.
Another awesome feature is the perferated bottom right corner that you can tear off after the week is over. It works as a handy built in bookmark as you use the planner. Plus the planners come with stickers which is always a bonus.
My biggest complaint is the price. At $50 it doesn't seem very price friendly for an audience that it seems perfect for. It's really hard to rationalize spending so much up front for a planner and definitely if you're in school trying to save money. But I'll say this for every expensive planner, if you really break it down it's pennies a day for the entire year to use something that works wonders for your organization. If it's going to make things easier for you in the long run and save you time and money, it's worthwhile.
I'm giving away this lovely planner to one of you! Be sure to enter the giveaway if you think this planner would work well for you or someone you know.
