one-starI have been doing various forms of journaling over the years and used various planners until I finally found planner peace with the Always Fully Booked planner. This will be my 4th year using AFB.

With that being said I am sort of creative and I am always looking for ideas and inspiration to use in my planner so when I found this on Book Outlet I quickly added it to my cart. I thought this would be perfect and inspirational but sadly it wasn’t. I really wish I would have done more research on this book before buying it.

I think this is probably perfect for someone who wants to make their own planner and accessories but to be honest you can find all this stuff online. I am thankful that I didn’t pay full price for this.

The Planner Book is very heavy on making accessories for your planner rather than how to decorate your spreads which I was actually hoping for. I guess that I found the photo to be misleading and the text as well. When you read it you think one thing until you open up the book and discover the opposite.
