[Giveaway] Simply Plan 2014 Organizer Review


There is something almost therapeutic about sitting down with pen to paper to plan your week.  A quiet Sunday evening with a tea and my favorite recipe books, the laptop, my best pen and a stack of papers.  Planning the dinners and lunches for the week and creating the grocery list.  Having a plan for the week in place, in writing.  This is my idea of a great start to the week.

The new star when I am prepping for the week with my tea is my new Simply Plan Organizer.

The planner has everything I need to stay organized.  Every month has a one page full month calendar, a page for goals and projects for the month, a page for weekly meal planning, a page for a weekly budget, and then a double page layout for every week (Monday to Sunday).


At the back of the planner has six categories to help you get organized even further.  Household, My Family, Goals, Keeping Track, Contacts and Notes are all perfect for keeping all the family information organized and in one spot.

The size of the organizer is perfect.  It fits in happily with my recipe books or on my desk at the ready.

The quality and care that is taken to make the organizer is evident the moment I had it in my hands.  Thick crisp paper, a heavy cover and the coil ensure a years of use will not leave this organizer in tatters.

Oh and that colour.  You KNOW I had to mention that, right.  It is almost like it was made special for me.

In the all new Simply Plan 2014, you’ll find:

  • - Full month overview preceding that months weekly pages
  • - Extra space for monthly To Do’s, Projects, Goals & Notes
  • - Weekly Meal Plan & Budget
  • - Whole week at glance incl. To Do’s, Goals and Notes/Memorable Moments
  • - Colored tabs for each month & special categories
  • - Printed on crisp, thick white paper
  • - All Canadian & US public holidays noted

  • - Durable silver-colored wire o-spiral binding
  • - Size: 21cmx 24.5cm (8.3 x 9.7 inches) including spiral binding
  • - Weight: 0.940 kg (2lb)

I am so in love with this organizer that I will be putting in my order for the 2015 version as soon as I can.

You can find out more about the Simply Plan Organizer by checking out their website.  The facebook page also has some photos of the organizer.  You can even follow on twitter.
