Freebie Friday – Write It Designs

Write It Designs

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker
Happy Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful week. This week I would like to tell you all about a cool company called Write It Designs. This blog post will feature their planners. Next month I will tell you all about their fully customizable planner pads and notebooks. So let’s get started.

When you visit the Write It Designs website, you can choose from a number of different planners. All the planners have the same content, but you get to choose the cover pattern which in turn determines the colours of the inside content. I chose the Hello Today Teal Dot planner. These planners have one of my favourite features. They are coil bound! I learned many years ago that because of the way I read and write in my notebooks and planners, that I need everything to be coil bound.

Hello Today Planner


Given that it is the beginning of January, I knew that I would use this planner for the 2016 calendar year. As soon as my daughter saw the planner, she grabbed it and said that it would be perfect for school because the planner is not dated so you can start it on any day and month that works for you. Too bad for her, as this one is for me. I can see ordering a planner for her in my future though!

When you open the planner, there is a full 12 month foldout spread housed behind this fabulous quote. I like how each time you peel back the cover this is what you are going to see, something positive and lively!

Next up in the planner are three years worth of mini calendars. It is always helpful to be able to look both forward and backwards from the current date. For each month you will then find a full month view as well as a week by week view.

I have been sick this week so I don’t have a lot of tasks listed each day, but on a normal week, these checklists would be filled with organization!

Write It Designs Planner

The open space at the bottom is perfect for making notes that are not day specific. I like to jot down things I need to buy and places I need to go sometime during the week.

Each month also has a to do list for the month. I quickly added reminders for things I want to accomplish this month. Having them written down here will give me a bit more pressure to actually finish them.

At the end of the planner, there is a plastic envelope to hold loose items. For now, I have tucked in the extra stickers I ordered for adding the dates to the planner and for marking special events and occasions.

    I would like to win a planner because I make cards for one group and other crafty items for another, plus challenge cards. It is really hard to keep track of everything and this would help immensely.

  3. barb macaskill says:

    Unfortunately I have tons of doctor appointments and keeping track of them is a full time job! This planner would be perfect to keep track of my appointments and my medicines. I would be able to write when each prescription is due and wouldn’t run out of any of my meds again! I would also be able to keep track of medicine changes so I can be sure the medicines are doing what they are supposed to since we sometimes change prescriptions in the hopes that they will be a better fit and it can get kind of confusing trying to remember when the change took place and when I am due to have blood taken to see what effect the new meds have had on my issues.Thanks for the chance to win a planner that seems to be the one that will really be a good fit for my needs! Off to check off Write It Designs website!!

    If this would get me more organized! I retired a few years ago, and have never been busier. I find that I have commitments for the same day and time, because I don’t have my calendar with me. I think this would help me.

  24. Gail A says:

    This planner looks easy to use. I would love to win it because I substitute teach and need to carry a planner in case I get asked for another job. This one looks like the perfect size for that.

  25. Jean Carlson says:

    I got planners for my two daughters for Christmas but these look really tempting for tracking all the new projects and ideas for writing my first book since my retirement! My one little word for 2016 (Ali Edwards) is Dream so having this planner would make my dream list a hopeful reality ?

    I, like all the rest, would love to win a planner. I finally settled on a weekly planner because I could not find a monthly planner as yours is. I am retired and I don’t need all the extra pages to keep myself organized. I love the available extras to compliment my personal planner. I love the the choices available and, rest assured, I am book-marking your site so next year I can buy a monthly planner from you. If I do not win, I will be back to your site. Wishing you great sales in 2016 and thereafter.

  38. Cindy Murray says:

    I made it my new year’s resolution to start a new planner/daily smashbook to help track my daily life. My daughter uses a planner and loves it. I am just getting started, so I haven’t really bought much product, so I can’t wait to try out some of these products in mine!

  39. Judy says:

    2015 was a little rough so I’m going to make 2016 a totally scrappable year! A planner would be the perfect instrument to help me track all of those daily moments to appreciate!

  40. Karla Maharjan says:

  48. Suzanne Vaughan says:

    I would love to win a planner but not for me , my oldest daughter is so unorganized and having OCD myself it drives me bonkers! I think having a planner and showing her all the great ways to use one would help her become more organized and way less stressed (I know I would be waaayyyy less stressed lol)

  49. Kathy says:

    Would love to try out this planner! I’m a super busy SAHM to twin boys who are 7 and a 3 year old daughter. I work part time, I’m on our town Board of Education, PTO treasurer and on Board of Directors for the boys wrestling club. To say that I need to stay organized is an understated. This would be a wonderful way to do so!

  58. April Trevena says:

    Between a full time job at the Post Office, a part time job selling Younique makeup products and school, I sometimes don’t know if I am coming or going. An organizer can help keep me and my schedule straight. Thanks for reading this.

  59. Mindy S says:

    I would love to win a planner. I have never used a planner in the past but now with all the different things and appointments I have I need something to keep track of them all. Post-it’s don’t cut it anymore unless I want my whole wall covered.

  60. Lori Littlefield says:

    Would love this planner! Getting ready for our expo in February at the Gaylord Hotel in Grapevine, TX

  61. Michelle A says:

    I am a planner fanatic and between my planners and organizing I’m sure I drive everyone around me crazy. I would love to win this planner as it is so cool.

  62. Jeanne Volmer says:

    I would love win a planner because I like to keep track of all the scrapbook crops and Scrapbook Expos I attend.

  63. Jaime Sunshine says:

    I would absolutely love to win a planner, because I have never used 1 previously & I want it for many different reasons. Not only will it be beneficial to keep track of my crafting related stuff that I swap & trade with other crafters, but this year my resolution was positivity. So, I would like to write a positive thought every day of the year to help bring more cheer & happiness to my life. I also think by doing so, this will help lead my 13 year old daughter by example. I can’t wait to check out the web & my fingers are crossed that I’m the lucky winner!

  64. Sheri says:

    I would like to win the Write It Designs Planner so I can create a custom calendar for my daughter-in-law.

  65. Joan K says:

    I would like to win the Write It Designs Planner so I could give it to Sheri who posted above and touched my heart with her comment. I don’t know Sheri, but what a wonderful gift to share with her daughter-in-law who undoubtably had many challenges in her life!

  66. Katherine Buchanan says:

    I have major memory issues. I’m hoping to try using a planner to help me remember the important things i always forget about!

    • Jen Walker says:

      Hi Joann! I am not quite sure what you are asking. Are you looking to enter the giveaway or attend a Scrapbook Expo?

  67. Maryann says:

    New to this. This looks wonderful. Getting older and need to keep ahead of the game. Thx fir sharing.

  68. Jenifer McDonald says:

    I am a list person, so having a spot for a To-Do list for every day is perfect! The layout is something I have been looking for. It seems to be a giant step towards planner peace for me!

  69. Shara Sheard says:

    LOVE this planner. Love the colors and especially the 3-year look ahead. People always ask me why I have a paper planner and I’m such a visual person, if I write the info down, I’m so much more apt to actually remember it. Plus, there is just something about the feel of paper and seeing your entire schedule at a glance. Sooo much better than online calendars!

  70. Stephanie Ferrill says:

    This planner from Write It Designs includes every possible way to help us remember everything going on in our busy lives.

  71. Sarahy Cruz-Perez says:

    I love planners! I do my digital planner on my phone but still keep a a traditional one as well. I’ve actually not purchased this year’s planner and would love to win this one instead! It would be so helpful in my scrapbookin since I tend to leave journaling until the end.
