I’ve been anxiously awaiting the arrival of my MAMBI (Me & My Big Ideas) “Happy Planner” over the past week. I finally have it and I’ve decided to review it and give my take on whether it’s worth the purchase or not. Let’s get into the basics:
- Planner: $25
- 6-Month Extension Pack & Home Planner: $9.95
- Planner Stickers: $4.99
- Interchangeable Covers: $4.99
- Standard Shipping: $7.95
I purchased the “Good Things Are Going to Happen” planner along with the 6-month extension pack. The planner begins in July of this year and ends in December of 2016. Compared to the Erin Condren Life Planner which is $50, I got 2 years worth of planning, including shipping, for a little over $40. I was torn between purchasing this planner opposed to the Erin Condren, but what sold me was the disc bound system. The Erin Condren has a coil binding and with the MAMBI planner I can take what I do not want to use.
I created a video that shows more in depth of how I use the planner, but I am pleased so far. I also discuss the pros and cons of the planner, from my perspective, so be sure to check the video below. If you are looking for a smaller planner, then no, this planner is not for you. If you have commitment issues to planner, then this planner isn’t for you either. I will say that although the planner is huge there’s not much I don’t like about it. The question is, will I really be using this until December of next year? Also there’s been issues from other reviews I’ve seen that there was trouble turning the pages. I haven’t had any trouble even flipping chunks of the planner back and forth.
Here’s what I’ve decided to keep in my planner. It’s nice to have stickers with the planner that I do not have to fish out. No the post-it pocket does not add any additional bulk to the planner. Items were purchased from either Target or Dollar tree. I purchased the post-it pocket from Staples. Click HERE to purchase.
