Today I want to introduce the newest member of my planner family, this cute mint A5 planner! I have just received it, so these are my very first impressions on it, they might change in the future but as always, I'll keep you updated :)
I purchased this planner from this seller on Aliexpress - there are several planners similar to this one and it comes in different colors and sizes . My lilac personal planner was also purchased on Aliexpress (reviewed here).
It was very affordable, at around $20 with free shipping, and took around 18 days to arrive from China, in good condition.
It comes with paper (grid,dots,blank and to-do lists) and a thick clear dashboard. It's great for the price, although the feel of it can't be compared to higher end brands, like Filofax. It has a nice weight, lays flat (a plus!), and the overall look is great. I'd say this is a perfect planner for someone on a budget, just starting out, or if you just can't resist cuteness ^^
The highlight of this planner is the cover design, with adorable doodles and words imprinted on the material. I absolutely LOVE the magnetic clasp - such a nice feature! All the stitching is perfect and the rings are very strong, without any gaps.
The light brown inside has a tiny pattern imprinted all over. The front has 3 pockets and one large secretarial flap, while the back is completely plain - which I like. The only negatives to mention, are the indentations left by the rings, since it didn't come with any ring protection, and the pen loop that is too wide and made of some sort of cheap plastic - I just wished it was small and elastic.
Overall, great planner for the price - I'd recommend it! Can't wait to start planning on it and making it my own :) I hope you find this review helpful and let me know if you have any questions or ideas on A5 planners that you want to share.
Thank you so much for reading!
