Unique Planners by Pirongs (Review)

I absolutely loved my Unique Planners by Pirongs last year so much so I told EVERYONE about how great they were. Meaning by mid March I noticed a lot of Unique Planners by Pirongs on tables at Lemur Linkup!

Made by Me Craft Parties Unique Planners by Pirongs

“I absolutely love this planner, I really like the way you can choose the layout to suit your needs and personalise the sections at the back. I chose pages such as the business planning pages and the travel and party planning pages. Perfect for my life and work. The tabs make it easy to find the month you want and the monthly layout at the start of each month is helpful too. I’d really recommend this planner!” Lexy, Made By Me Craft Parties

I’d already designed a planner for 2018 with TOAD Diaries and as I’m trying to declutter and go paperless it didn’t make much sense to have a second personalised diary. Luckily the Lemur Linkup crew were keen to grab one.

Illana, Hari Hari I got my Unique Planners by Pirongs for 2018! Using the website was easy to navigate and pretty straight forward to use. You do have to make sure you have the right size images and good quality pictures to ensure they fit the way you want them too. The cover page was a little trickier for me this year and I did have to contact customer service, who took a day to get back to me, about how to stretch a picture to fit the way I wanted. Sadly it still didn’t work and I had to use a second choice photo for the diary cover. I personalised the diary a little further by adding photos on to each page heading and added in birthdays and anniversaries into the relevant dates. It probably would be quicker to do this by hand but you would not get the professional finish like I have by having the dates printed in.

I was a little disappointed with the extra pages that you can add at the end of the diary. In 2017 there was quite a large selection of business pages that could be added including business goals, plans etc etc. None of these were available for 2018. They still however had a large selection of blogging template pages which is always great to have.” This for me was a huge selling point last year. However, taking into consideration my word of the year is “action” I’ve actually just removed a load of these pages which I didn’t use last year to scrapbook style into my 2018 planner. These extras are great if you actually use them!

“I love this diary due to the fact that it can be so tailored to your own requirements. The only criticism I would have is that if you are looking to use this diary as an all purpose, work, kids school and home diary then don’t. The sections per day are very small and with me having 3 kids it leaves very little room for me to add everything. An option of a page a day would have been perfect for my uses. The extra stickers are sweet but there are an awful lot of working out ones maybe a few more options detailing training courses, school holidays etc would be more useful but then it does depend on how you plan to use this diary. I have a very specific requirement that crossed over to 3 uses – maybe I am expecting too much. Overall however, I think this is a great diary. It would make a fantastic present for someone and if you are only using for 1 purpose, i.e. school, home or work then it is ideal and I would highly recommend it. Delivery was super fast and all the added extra of being able to choose the colour of the spiral binder, book mark and number of sleeves in the diary was perfect!

“I’m really looking forward to hopefully getting organised. It was also very well packaged and it felt a little like opening a Christmas present when unwrapping it all!!”

    I’d keep it and use it all the time as I have four children and a huge family so lots of dates, parties and appointments etc to remember! I alsolike to do a weekly meal plan and write shopping lists so this would be a great planner to have as I could keep all my notes and lists in one place!

    I am a bit of a planner addict but at the same time I got so bogged down in that aspect that I was feeling less and less like I was actually being organised and more and more stressed by it all. I guess I’d use it for blog planning. I have my diary for appointments and to do etc already
