It's about the size of a typical college binder.

Cards, ruler, back to back compartments, and stickers!

The stickers are so cute I wish they would add more!

Other Functions

2013 summary planner, budget tracker, pages for notes & doodles and "contacts section".

If you have seen my earlier 2012 planner post, you’ve probably noticed that I’m a sucker for colorful designs. I just can’t resist the attractiveness! πŸ™‚

This 2012 planner is very functional, attractive and unleashes your creativity! I love that they made different designs for each month, week, etc. Each design is well thought of, colorful, cute and very functional. It’s so me! πŸ˜€

I’m just not that convinced about the price. Other planners within the same price range already have discount coupons (Like Stradmore’s which is 499.75php.). I wish they would lower the price a little or add discount coupons too.

Rating: 9.5 out of 10!

    So the owners were able to read this entry and they replied:

    Design Your Life Planner
    Thank you so much for the kind words, Valerie! πŸ™‚ With regards to the price, well..we worked really hard on the designs (and sometimes even sleeping late because of it, we’re just 2 students :o) and the fluorescent ink is much more expensive than the normal ones. DYLP is one unique planner that you will be using for a whole year (or even more!). It’s a planner/scrapbook/photo diary in one πŸ™‚ We’re not sure about including coupons in our planner, but we’re thinking about it. We wanted it to be a unique planner, since every other planner was doing it already. Haha nonetheless, we hope you think it’s worth it and that it will inspire you to Design Your Life! πŸ™‚ We really appreciate your blog entry and suggestions β™₯ Cheers to 2012!

    So we all now understand why the price tag, ey? Get yours now and design your life YOUR WAY… πŸ™‚
