Stick To Stigu Planner Review

I’ll admit it I do have a small obsession with stationery and planners. Having tried a wide variety of different ways to keeping my life organised over the years from using a Filofax to a Bullet Journal, I have recently been introduced to the Stick To Stigu planner for 2017.

Not quite A4 in size, the planner comes in either spiral bound or hardback. I like spiral bound planners as I find hardback pages can become lumpy when you reach the centre of the book, however there is an option for everyone.

Inside the planner, the layout is a week to view beginning on a Monday (my week always starts on a Monday) covering one half of your planner layout. The other side is an almost blank page with a small section at the bottom with motivational quotes, hints ant tips or a handy idea. All centering around focusing on you and improving you. I like these little messages and find them handy.

The remainder of the blank page is ample space to write notes for the week that perhaps you need to rememeber. It’s also a good place to write a To Do list which is what I will be using mine for.

The Stick To Stigu planner can be used for anything you wish surrounding your life. For a personal planner, the five columns on each weekly view can help keep each member of the family in check so you know where they all are supposed to be. Perhaps you want to use a column for meal planning.

I aim to use my planner purely to organise my blogging. Five columns over each week is perfect for recording blog posts I need to write, keeping an editorial calendar. I can keep track of Youtube videos I want to record and upload, social sharing reminders and plenty more. My Stick To Stigu planner will be my blog bible for 2017.

The planner itself is well made in terms of quality. The front and back cover is thick and good quality, and each page feels a decent thickness so no worries of pens bleeding through the pages when you’re writing. There is also a handy perforated triangle in the bottom corner of each weekly page to tear off. No more searching through the pages to work out where you are in your planner.

Each weekly page is designed in either squares, hearts, circles and there is even a weekly layout with flowers in June. I prefer the squares or circles for maximum space to keep me organised, however having a variety of designs makes the planner appealing aesthetically.

My only niggle with the planner is finding some pre filled text in one of my columns. Such as the tip you will see above, this is great but means I have lost my daily space for my own notes. A minor niggle and it doesn’t detract from how much I love this planner and can see it working for me in 2017.

    The simple answer is I am not organised and need all the help I can get. I have a family calendar and that has everything on it. A diary is great and I have tried using my phone but forget to fill it in!

    I make lots of lists though I keep loosing the lists so this planner would be great to keep everything all in one place & also would help me not forget any appointments I have coming up 🙂 x

    Lots of lists. Some, like my Christmas card list are on my laptop so I can save them and refer back the next year. Others are in notebooks. I keep a notebook with me at all times so whenever I remember something I can jot it down and we even stick Post-Its around the house to keep us organised.

    I’d love to say I am organised as everything does seem to get done eventually, but the truth is my friends would always claim otherwise and say it’s only down to their constant reminders that I stay on track 😉

    I have a spreadsheet to keep on top of my finances which totals my incoming for the month and lists the bills with dates due to be paid it then takes away the bills amount to leave me an overall amount of whats left over for us to live on.

    I also keep a wall planner with appointments, days out, birthdays highlighted

    I’m a massive stationery geek and have tried every planner under the sun. I’ve also got a bullet journal. My instagram is mostly a planner page lol. I definitely need and recommend a planner. I’ve never forgotten an appointment since I discovered the world of planners. I’m glad you’ve told us about the thickness of the paper. I have a personal planner from personal -planner.com and I love the thickness of their paper so that’s a bonus! I also love that the corners can be torn away so as to find your place easily! Most of all I love the design and the stigu character lol
