The Mailbox Post April 18th – 23rd

Its hard to believe its that time of the week for another mailbox post.
The hosts of the mailbox memes are:


Tynga’s Reviews is the host of Stacking the Shelves and the other host is Mailbox Monday which now has its own blog.

Mailbox Monday will no longer be hosted monthly by different bloggers.


I am also going to be taking part in the Bought, Borrowed and Bagged (BB&B) that is hosted by Frankie AKA Braine over at . This is a weekly meme where you share what books you have bought, borrowed or bagged (this would be books you won or that were gifted to you).


Good Saturday morning everyone. I hope you are all having a good start to the weekend. Its a beautiful sunny day here in my neck of the woods. The sun is out and its gradually starting to warm up, finally after this long cold winter we had, spring is finally here.

This week I only have one book to share with you and its this one:

Its No Where But Here by Katie McGarry. I got this with my harlequin reward pointsThis is my 5th free book since I started doing the Harlequin Rewards.

Another thing I got this week that is somewhat related to my blog is this:

Its my very first Erin Condren planner. I have been wanting one for quite some time but in all honesty I just couldn’t justify spending all the money on one because I have to factor in the exchange rate and duties. That was until now, Erin Condren is currently having a 50% sale on all their life planners. They are currently on sale from $22.50 to $32.50 USA. You can customize it to your liking.

Another thing that sweetened the deal for me was Jennifer from Jenn’s Bookshelves shared her referral code for $10 off and I am going to share mine with you in case you are interested in getting one for yourself. You can click HERE and it will take you there to get your $10 off. You must be a first time customer I believe in order for this to apply.

I should let you know that if you are in Canada and are planning on ordering it and having it shipped to Canada you will have to pay duties on it. Its shipped via UPS.

I am super excited to start working with this planner and decorating it. I have order a few decorating kits and as soon as they start arriving I will share that in a weekly post (probably Sundays) and I also plan on doing a weekly look at the planner spread I decorated for the week.

If you decorate your planner and have a favorite shop please leave it in the comments below so I can go and check them out.


  1. I’m going to check out those planner deals. Thanks, Cindy!

  2. Nice Planner. I hope you enjoy it a lot. Plus Katie McGarry’s books are so good. Have a wonderful weekend.

    • Thanks Grace. I wasn’t sure what I wanted my planner to look like but I think I have an idea for next year’s one when I order it at this time again next year. What is nice is that you can buy date covers on etsy so Jan/Feb/March and probably April won’t go to waste as I can use that next year until the new one comes in LOL

      I have been hearing great things about her books so excited to try her out, have a good weekend as well

  3. That planner looks really good. I will check out the website. I know several people who would really get into these planners.

  4. That planner looks fantastic, so of course I’m going to have to check it out, thanks for sharing, Cindy!
    I hope you’ll enjoy Nowhere But Here, I really did.
    Have a wonderful week ahead and happy reading.

  5. I sometimes wish I could get into hardcopy planners. I will pick one up every once in a while but I end up going back to my Google calendar in the end. Hope you enjoy yours!

  6. So cool although why do you have to pay for duties regardless of the cost? Hmmm

    • Braine, since I live in Canada and I bought something from the USA online I have to pay taxes, duty/tarrif and a brokerage fee. The Canada Customs calculates the tax from the declared value on the parcel so if they listed at the price I paid I have to pay the tax on that. The duty is a special kind of tax that you pay to the Canadian government when you import goods and the brokerage fee is imposed by the carrier such as UPS and they are charging you for providing customs service: being your agent when “clearing” your parcel across the border. So yea that explains why I don’t order alot online from the USA
