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

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! 🙂

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! 😀

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!

Thank you!

Just a few weeks before 2012! Are you already equipped with a 2012 planner? I am! 😀

For the past 3 years, I’ve been loyal to my Belle De Jour Power Planner. The layouts and designs are very pretty (and girly)! Every page is very useful. Belle De Jour Power Planner is definitely made for girls and women alike who wants to have a more productive and organized year.

For 2012, I won’t be using a Belle De Jour Power Planner. Don’t get me wrong, I love Belle De Jour! The only problem is its size and weight. The size is big enough to write everything you need but I always bring my planner with me wherever I go and Belle De Jour gets heavier the longer I carry it. It also eats too much space in my bag. So I searched high and low to find a smaller planner.

The search is over!

Tada! My Toread 2012 Planner!



It comes with free stickers!

With a 2010 and 2011 calendar

You can put daily notes for 2010 and 2011

category dividers!

monthly pages

weekly pages

full colored pages (for notes)

pages for notes

Other cute characters!

So I only posted SOME of the really cute things of my 2012 planner to be. It has so many pictures! It has monthly and weekly pages. It also has a couple of pages for some notes for 2010 and 2011. No dates or months are written so you can use it any year! It also comes in different cover designs and sizes.

One thing I don’t like (others may see it as a good thing): It has too many pages for writing notes. Actually, half of the planner are pages for notes which made it thick.


  • 4 1/4 inches wide
  • 5 1/2 inches long
  • 3/4 of an inch thick

I bought this at FUNctional at their Trinoma branch, ground level near Mendrez, Plains and Prints and Kamiseta.

How much, you ask? Only 195php!!!
