Lifestyle Planning

My New, Unplanned Planner for 2017!

Kikki-K Tangerine Personal Planner

I used to own a dark pink Webster’s Pages Colour Crush planner.

Well, I still own it. However, I cannot use it because I accidentally damaged it when I deposited Job’s salary into his bank account — long story, but I’m gonna tell it anyway haha.  There’s a BDO (Job’s bank) in Riyadh but it’s too far from where he lives and, according to him, it’s much cheaper to send his money here for me to deposit than for him to travel all the way to BDO. Very well, then!

I wrote his bank account number in my planner and also saved it in my phone for back up. When I was in the bank, I referred to the bank account number saved in my phone. If you know me, you would also know that I had to cross-check the number with the number that was written in my planner (and then double check it, thrice).

Because I was trying to do everything quickly before the line gets longer, I also  quickly opened my planner… and broke the snap. Huhu!

I tried to get it repaired at Mr. Quickie; apparently, they don’t repair broken snaps. And I don’t know where else to look, so I strategically bemoaned my loss at Job. I especially emphasised the part where I accidentally broke the snap while running an errand for him. He, of course, volunteered to replace my planner. Yay!

(Disclaimer: I am usually not like this. I just really need to use a planner! My friend, George, can testify to this. During the days when I was planner-less, I kept forgetting the things I needed to do.)

I was planning to replace my Colour Crush with another Colour Crush (I function best with refillable binder planners), but changed my mind due to two reasons.

First, I was afraid I’d just break the snap again — the snap had always seemed a little bit too fragile. It’s safer to assume that all Colour Crush planners are made the same way rather than assume I just had a lemon.

Second, I wasn’t planning on buying a new planner at all. In fact, since binder planners are refillable, I was planning to use my Colour Crush until it gives up on me. Well, it did give up on me ahead of schedule. Since I was buying a new one anyway, and since I’m planning to use it for a long time, I figured why not upgrade?

So behold, my new planner, a tangerine Medium Leather Personal Kikki.K planner!

I bought it secondhand, so the price is roughly the same as a brand new Webster’s Pages Colour Crush. Job actually wondered why it costs lower than he expected, so I told him I didn’t order a brand new one. He was happy, lol!
