Today & To Do by Whitney English Review & Giveaway
Disclosure: Belle and Blush sent me a copy of the Today & To Do in exchange for writing a review on my blog. Opinions expressed here are my own.
About a month ago, I received this lovely Today & To Do in the mail! I had contemplated purchasing one when they were announced on the Day Designer Instagram, but as I already have the flagship January 2015 edition, I felt it was unnecessary. I was so delighted when Merry from Belle & Blush contacted me, that I gladly accepted her offer to write this review!
The major difference between the Today & To Do and the regular Day Designer is that the Today & To Do is much smaller, and it also has undated pages. This is great if you’re on the run, and you may not need your daily planner or don’t feel like carrying it around. Also, if you have a weekly planner but find yourself needing more room on certain days, the Today & To Do is a great option for those hectic days!

The Today & To Do has over 300 sheets of daily planning pages, and unlike a dated planner, it can be used anytime! These daily pages are the same as those in the regular Day Designer. They include the Top 3, the 4 D’s (Due, Dinner, Dollars, and Don’t Forget), a schedule from 7am-7pm, a to-do list, and the download box, and the daily gratitude box. All of these help you have a well designed day!
After using the Today & To Do for a couple months, I have noticed little chips in the words, but that is me being really picky. You can hardly notice it, and the cover is still in great shape!
The first pages of the Today & To Do explain what how to make your own Well Designed Day and includes worksheets for “Important Things” and a “Victory List.” I love the Victory List because it reminds you to focus on the positive in your life, even if they are small!
The Today & To Do has reference calendars for 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. These are great when you need to plan ahead!
This is the dated “Quick Planner” for 2015. This is a great overview for the year, and I use this for birthdays in my Day Designer.
This is an example of the daily planning page. I usually divide my to-do list into two sections: business & personal. This helps me keep things separate because I like to break my day up into blocks like this. I definitely get more done that way!
Quotes are featured on each page, and I enjoy reading a new one every day!
It is worth noting that the Today & To Do is not a daily planner in the traditional sense. Many times while using it I would want to reference my monthly view like in my Day Designer, but I would then remember this doesn’t have one! This made me thankful for the download section, where I can note important dates, and add them to my Day Designer later.
The blush Today & To Do can be purchased from Belle & Blush or the Day Designer website for $57. The regular Day Designer is only $2 more, so I feel like the Today & To Do could have a lower price making it more affordable.
