July’s was my last kit from The Planner Society after I cancelled at the end of May.
My confession is that I both regret cancelling, and am also relieved.
I regret cancelling because every single kit I’ve received to date has been filled to the brim with well-made and marvellously designed planner goodies.
I’m relieved because each month cost almost £30 (more than $12 of which was for shipping) and I can’t afford to keep doing it.
I have another confession, too: Several of the items from each kit are languishing in my planner bags right now because I have no idea how to use them.
The paper clips, for instance, just don’t work with my planner style. (I leave it open on my bed. Clips go missing regularly. I no longer use clips as a result.) I can’t figure out how to attach the gorgeous charm that came with the May kit to my Happy Planner. There are pens that I love but that are far too thin for me to grip, and there are other bits that, though yummy to look at, are just a waste of space (and money) for me.
I plan (haha!) to put the unused items in my next giveaway. In the meantime, I felt like I was basically flinging money at the US Postal Service (who, along with Royal Mail, seem to be taking longer and longer to actually get my Planner Society goodies to my door).
This was going to be my last review of The Planner Society kit.
Except what can I say that I haven’t said already? Nothing has changed in this month’s kit in terms of quality or value for money: I was excited to receive it and gleeful to open it like a child on Christmas morn. I sit and think about all the ways the stickers and the die-cut pieces and journalling cards will make my planner look good. And even the pieces I won’t use give me joy just to look at them.
And so, I say goodbye to Christy Tomlinson and her team with a heavy and regretful heart — along with a final confession that, as soon as my finances will allow it, I fully intend to sign up once again.
Until that day, enjoy your kits if you’re a Planner Society gal, or join me in envious ogling if you’re not. ;D
