Simply Yours Day Planner by Bailey Craft Planners Review


Simply Yours Day Planner by Bailey Craft Planners

Disclosure: Bailey Craft Planners sent me a copy of their Simply Yours Day Planner in exchange for writing a review & giveaway on my blog. Opinions expressed here are my own.


I love hearing about new planners on the market, so when I was contacted by Bailey Craft Planners to do a review on their new planners, I didn’t hesitate to say yes! Yolanda and Katherine, occupational therapists for 12 plus years, created Bailey Craft Planners to provide mothers, wives, and professionals with a system to keep their lives organized and balanced. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, the Simply Yours Day Planner started shipping in January 2016! 


The covers a very well made, and feature great designs: Gold Stripes, Pink/Navy Stripes, Flower Garden (pictured), and Navy Bliss. The coil is thick, and made to last for a year of daily use, and the planner also features gold metal reinforced corners. While it is not attached, each planner also comes with an elastic band to keep it closed when not in use. 


Each title page can be customized to display your name. In this case, I chose my blog’s name, and it looks great! I love the script font they use; it is so lovely and easy to read. 

When you order your planner you can personalize this page, and also select which month you’d like your planner to start. This is a great option because there are no wasted months in your planner!


The Simply Yours Day Planner includes a yearly spread for both 2016 and 2017. This is always handy for planning ahead!


There is also a page that lists important dates by month for the year. This page includes more than national holidays such as Daylight Savings and some notable appreciation days. 

Each month also had sturdy laminated tabs, so the monthly view is easily accessible. 


The Simply Yours Day Planner features Long Term and Short Term goal sheets to help plan out your year. Each month includes a short term goals sheet as well, to keep up with your plan of long term goals.

The monthly view spans two pages with a monthly to-do list as well. Each month boasts a different color which is always a nice change of pace for me. I have noticed that the lines in their planners are a bit harsh for my liking, but still a great planner overall. 


The weekly view is horizontal that also includes a to-do list or shopping list. Again, I feel the lines are dark and sharp, but overall between the paper quality & durable cover, it is a great planner. Monday through Friday spread the full page, but the weekend days split a page. 


For their 2017 edition planner, they are releasing a vertical weekly layout which is very popular amongst planner lovers.


At the end of the planner is a sturdy folder to hold stickers or other essential planner supplies. 


Now, of course, it is time for a fabulous planner giveaway! The lovely ladies behind the Simply Yours Day Planner have offered up this gorgeous gold stripe planner! Use the Rafflecopter entry form below for your chance to win your own Simply Yours Day Planner.
