I’m a bit of a planner addict, and I always love getting a fresh new agenda from my favorite companies. Ban.do was the first planner brand that really got me hooked. Ever since buying my first book from them a couple years ago, I’ve been obsessed with planning out my days and months, as well as decorating each page for the week. I was so excited when I found out about their new designs for 2016-2017, and they were sweet enough to contact me to see if I wanted to review one for you guys (of course I answered with an enthusiastic “yes!”). Without further ado, let’s dive on in to the new Ban.do Large Agenda*!
This is definitely the best batch of planners Ban.do has made, in my opinion. They come in 3 different sizes, several cute designs, and either spiral bound or hardcover bound, so you’re really able to find the right one for your style. One improvement that I’ve noticed from last year’s design is that the monthly tabs are now laminated, so you don’t have to worry about them getting bent or ripped from use. You get 2 pages of stickers in this edition, plus all new artwork from talented indie artists. One of my favorite things about these planners is that after you’re done with the month, you can cut out the artwork and hang it up around your home or workplace. That “When In Doubt, Make Out” print is totally going in my living room.
Along with Ban.do’s new agenda shop, they also carry a ton of cute planner accessories and stationery! I’m a huge fan of their adorable stickers (where were these when I was growing up?!), and love that the new Even More sticker book* includes designs like “To Do”, “Appointment”, and “Checklist” – so handy! Some other goodies they offer are highlighters*, sticky notes*, washi tapes*, and if you can’t decide? Check out their Agenda Starter Pack* for a little bit of everything to help you start decorating and organizing to your heart’s content. Ban.do agendas and accessories are currently available for purchase in select stores and through their online shop, and the planners start August 2016 – just a few weeks away! I’m so excited to start using this and taking it everywhere with me. It’s like scrapbooking and planning all in one, so it’s a fun little creative outlet and never feels boring or like “work”.
