Planner collection pt.2: Kikki K, Webster's Pages, Filofax


Today it's time for part 2 of my planner collection, the refillable binders from A5 to pocket size. In my last post I shared my MAMBI Happy Planners and Heidi Swapp Memory Planner!

When I started my planner journey in 2015 I wanted a A5 format planner soo bad, à la SATC Samantha Jones'. Unfortunately it was nearly impossible for me to find one that I found cute ánd affordable!

 


When I was in Singapore I finally got to see one in real life at the Kikki K store. Unfortunately the available collections were not really my taste. But then I laid my eyes upon the beautiful A5 Wellness Planner (€70). After much contemplation I decided to buy one as an addition to my Happy Habits Box.

Note: The leather A5 planners are around €10-20 higher in price than the synthetic ones.


At Papermarket in Singapore I spotted 1 Webster's Pages Personal Planner Kit (A6) left, but decided to resist temptation because I found it such a waste to pay (€39,50) for 6 months of expired inserts. Unfortunately the separate planner without inserts was already sold out :(

However, in the week before my departure I just couldn't get the planner out of my mind! I told myself yolo. And when I got to the register it unexpectedly ended up being on sale for around €25 :D #positivethinking #lawofattraction


When I just started planning I unfortunately had little knowledge of planner sizes. I was over the moon when I scored this planner (A6) for €5 at Lidl, only to find out at home that A5 inserts of course did not fit inside! #oops #dustyoselfoffandtryagain


This is my latest purchase which I already shared in my Dec/Jan haul, the Filofax patent leather pocket (A7) planner (€41,95) in lavender. After a month of light use the material of the clasp suddenly came loose! For some reason instant glue did not work at all when I tried to fix it. So I improvised using some MT washi as a bandaid...


And last but not least, this pink A7 gem with a Hello Kitty on the front. Out of nowhere I suddenly remembered having a HK binder somewhere in between my old stuff. And apparently I've been an OG planner all this time, because this one dates all the way back to 1999 (last used in 2009)!


Enjoy your week and make something good out of it!
