I bought the Bloom Daily Planner in late August 2015 and started using it in September 2015. This planner runs as per the academic year from August 2015 through July 2016. There are actually 19 colorful designs to choose from. I decided to choose this pattern, the Poppy Picnic because it is such a cheerful color.
Check out my video for the insides of the Bloom Daily Planner 2015-2016 Academic Year!
Some things about the planner to take note off:
• Size: 5.25″ wide x 8.25″ tall x .4″ thick, 8.6 oz.
• 2 Page Monthly Spreads followed by Spacious Weekly Views with Monthly Tabs
• Plastic Coil Binding
• 2 Inspirational Quotes and 1 To Do List on each Monthly View
• Shaded Weekends, Special Icons on Select Holidays
• 1 – Personal Info Page, 1 – Yearly Goals Page, 1 – Reasons for a Party List, 2 – Address Book Pages, 3 – Class Scheduling Pages, 3 – Things To Do Lists, 5 – Notes Pages
• 2015 & 2016 Yearly Views Printed on Front and Back Inside Covers
My verdict on the Bloom Daily Planner 2015-2016 Academic Year:
- Turning the pages in the Bloom Planner is pretty smooth and the pages does not catch on the coils.
- Planner covers are rather sturdy however it will be great if it is laminated. I’ve used it for 2 months and the cover is already showing some signs of wear, maybe because I throw the planner in my bag a lot. Depends on how you care for your planners I guess.
- I fully utilize the monthly and weekly layout for appointments and draft lists. I love the simplicity of the layout. Lined weekly layout helps a bit. It would be better if they add on more Note pages. I imagine students will need more Note and Things to Do pages.
- The quality of the paper is pretty good.I used a Staedtler Fineliner pen to write and does not bleed through much.
- I bought this planner because I was looking for something that is compact, light and has a simple layout. This planner serves its purpose as my sync-ing planner. I call it the sync-ing because I have multiple planners so I need a “middle-man” of sort to help me sync all the appointments / events / lists / ideas, etc. It is working so far and I love it.
- I think it will be great for drafting lists for the week or jotting down ideas or plans without being too wary about how “ugly” your planner layout will look like. This planner doesn’t judge you.
- For just USD11.95 and a shipping fee of USD3.99 to US addresses, I think it is really affordable for quick daily planning or students or those who wants to get a head start on planning.
Will i buy it again?
- Yes! I love using it so much to sync my other planners that I pre-ordered a 2016 Calendar Year Daily Planner and the 2016 Calendar Year Vision Planner as well!
- Bloom Daily Planner will be shipping their 2016 planners next week so order yours now!
