2017 Customized Planner (Under PHP200)

Happy 2017! Posting a quick entry to show my customized planner for the year.

I customized again this year since my 2016 Moleskine became so lumpy; I really do need a spring one. I also wanted to try a grid layout for the year, so when I chanced on this planner one day, I immediately got it.

Here’s a quick view of my 2016 Moleskine.

I bought a Harmony Planner from UP Town Center (you can find it in the tiangge for P100, or inside the Department Store for P189. You can also get it at Fully Booked for P275).

The planner is open dated.

The original layout had

  • (16-month) Monthly Grid View spread
  • Weekly Grid View (half the notebook)
  • Grid Pages (2nd half)

I wanted the weekly grid view on one side, while the other side had a blank/grid page–which obviously wasn’t the original arrangement of the notebook.

It was easy enough to bring the planner to U.P. Blessings to get it wire-bound* for only P43. They took the planner apart, cut the spine, and before they began the punching and binding, I re-arranged the pages to the layout I wanted–Monthly Grid View Spread, Weekly Grid+Grid Page spread. I also changed the cover by getting a photo printed (I resized the photo ahead of time and availed of U.P.’s printing services as well).

Here’s the result:

How vain am I? USING MY OWN PHOTO AS A PLANNER COVER LEVELS OF VAIN, APPARENTLY.

2017 To Read and Have Watched List

Total Expenses: P262

  • Planner – P189 (I found the department store planner first, before I saw it out in the tiangge. 😦 It’s still cheap though!)
  • Binding – P43
  • Front cover printing – P30 (You can do this at home as well! Just bring the print-out when you get your planner bound so they can include it)

If you manage to buy the P100 planner, your total will only be P173 (including front cover printing) or P143 (re-using the original front cover or bringing your own print-out).

*They don’t call it wire-binding anymore; I forgot the specific word they used. They will recommend it though, when you ask for a wire-binding.

What’s your planner for the year? Hope this post gave you some ideas!
