Please don't think I'm crazy. There is a good chance that you will after reading this. My slight OCD is definitely going to shine through on this post. Just hang with me for a second. It won't be as painful as you think.
So, if you've been following for a while, you may remember a post a few weeks back about a wonderful paper planner that I found. Many of you even bought it. It is really that cool. If you need a refresher as to what I'm talking about or if you weren't around then, click here.
I really do like that planner. I promise. But the same time that I was introduced to the Erin Condren planner, I was also introduced to the Much Ado About You planner. I ordered both.
I know...I told you I have a problem....at least I'm well aware of it.
I got both of them in the mail around the same time, and the Erin Condren planner was so pretty! So it won me over at first, but I knew there was something about the Much Ado About You Planner that I LOVED.
Eventually, I realized that the layout of the Erin Condren planner was just not working for me. (There is a chance that it was making me more crazy than I naturally am.) Even though I love it! I really do! (And if you ordered one, I know you'll love yours. I'm just crazy, remember?!)
I had to try the Much Ado planner. So I transfered over all my info, and I was in LOVE. So here's why:
First of all, the overall weight of the Much Ado planner is much lighter than the Erin Condren planner. It's easier to carry around (which makes me happy since I carry mine everywhere).
And of course you can personalize it!
The monthly layout is a full 2 page layout as opposed to the Life Planner's 1 page layout.
There is more space to write in the daily spaces plus there's a notes section at the bottom of each day. The days have space for hourly planning from 7:00 a.m.- 11:00 p.m.
Sorry about my bad pics. But I wanted you to see mine. This format has helped me map out my crazy days so much more efficiently. It makes it easier for me to see how much time I have available and when at a single glance.
There is also a built-in folder in the back for holding your essentials (like your Scentsy catalog).
and you can add on a personalized notebook (lined or unlined) and a pen/pencil holder
Oh, and don't overlook the pen/pencil holder. It's one of my favorite parts!
Other things I really love about the Much Ado planner:
- The tabs are thicker and much sturdier than the tabs on the Life Planner. The tabs on my Life Planner were already starting to show signs of wear. The tabs on the Much Ado planner are protected by the length of the cover and are thicker to begin with.
- There is ample space in the back for notes.
- The layout of every week is exactly the same. (The Life Planner can vary week to week depending on how the month falls. So Monday may be the first day one week and Sunday may be the first day the next....it confused me.)
And I must not forget to tell you that the Much Ado About You planner comes in three sizes. (I personally LOVE the medium size.)
And just look at all these styles to choose from, and the prices are incredibly reasonable.
Much Ado About You also carries:
- Desk/Wall Calendars
- Journals and Idea Books
- Appointment Books
- Teacher Lesson Planners
- Student Academic Planners
- Address Books
I love it all. You'll have to go check it out for yourself. Head over to http://maay-products.blogspot.com/ and have a look around. You won't be disappointed.
