Keep Track of the New Year with Day Planners from Minted - Review

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

I must write appointments and dates down or I'm liable to forget.  I also work midnight shift with rotating nights off so I keep track of that throughout the year with a planner.  In other words, I have to "write my life down".  

Minted, a company that's known for unique art, stationery and home decor, has come through with providing day planners to help stay organized.  You may have heard of Minted over the Christmas season.  Several bloggers used their services for holiday and Christmas cards.  I personally used Minted to create day planners for myself and others.

It is almost the beginning of the year and it's a great time to consider purchasing a day planner.  Minted offers personalizable notebooks that can be customized with unique cover designs, photos, and text.  The notebooks can be turned into an address book, planner, or journal based upon choice.  

Although you can use a picture for the front cover, I chose to use designs from the many options.  I created day planners for myself and a couple for my teenage kids.  I know Logan's will come in great use when he's writing down his college schedule and Shelby will use hers to keep track of when she has to work.

After I chose which design I wanted on the front cover, I was able to add each person's name for a personalized effect.   On each inside cover, I included a photo that was special to that person and used a quote that was already suggested.  

The monthly planners are 20 pages and slim in size.  It includes a two-year overview and undated month spreads.  This means you can write in the months and dates yourself.  You don't have to start with the beginning of the year if you'd rather not.  There's also a paper pocket for bills and receipts, and stickers to mark important dates.  Extra pages are available to write notes, and a clear protective cover keeps the front of the book smudge-free.  You can choose spiral binding (which I did) or grommets.

The process to create the monthly planners was simple, and I love that each planner is individualized to each person.  I'm ready to tackle 2018!
