the belle de jour craze

I really tried making my own 2009 planner. I even had a few pages done, complete with inspiring quotes to get me through the coming days. However, after much contemplating on the expenses I'll have with a customized planner (printing and binding fees), I realized it will take some amount off my thin wallet. With the Belle De Jour craze present in the blogosphere, I decided to join the fad instead! It was less expensive too than having a planner customized.

Shown above is my Belle De Jour 2009 planner which I bought last Sunday at Powerbooks Megamall. The minute I took it's protective plastic cover off it, I scanned every page of the planner, making sure I made the right decision. After seeing how much of a treasure I was holding, the guilt feeling of not finishing my customized planner left me.

It's funny how obsessed I am with it. I can't wait to write on it and use the discount coupons!

*I am half-way done with my 2009 desktop calendar. That one will go to the printing shop next month, promise. Will be posting it here soon!

I am actually to frugal (cheap?) to buy a planner, so I just ask for one from our Sunlife rep. This year's was very nice, and I didn't have to spend anything for it. I don't know about next year though.

I wanted to make my own planner too, but I just never got around to it....
