Stigu Planner Review

Hi, my name is Catherine and I have an addiction to planners. There, I’ve finally admitted it. If there was a ‘Planner Adicts Anonymous’ group, with its own twelve step programme I most likely would be attending on a weekly basis. I have planners that come in all shapes and forms – from the standard day-to-day diary, bullet journals and wall planners right through to planning apps on my phone and laptop. I have tried them all and while they all have their merits none of them are fulfilling the role I currently need my planner to do. Enter the Stigu planner.

Stigu-Planner-Review-the planner

I have a system I use for organising my day to day life, and that works quite well for me at the moment, but where I am struggling is with my work life – this blog and my freelance work. I require a planner that will show everything I have going on work wise that week, be it what blog posts are scheduled for the week, the social media I need to schedule, posts I need to write for next week, work I am doing for my freelance clients. I need to have it all laid out on one page for ease of reference. 


And this is what the Stigu planner does perfectly. Each week on the Stigu planner is split into five columns, so you can use each column for a separate task or person. This makes it not just ideal for me as a work planner, it would also be really useful for busy families with each member having their own column. We are currently not at that ‘busy family’ stage with kiddies going to multiple after school clubs, but I know it will be happening at some point and when it does I will start using a Stigu planner for home life organisation.


There is so much to love about the Stigu planner. Aside from being very pretty and unique – each page is different in style – it is also filled with handy tips and tricks to help you rest and recharge during your busy days, as well as little quotes that make you stop and think. All the usual national holidays are included, along with a few you may not be familiar with, for instance, did you know that this coming Sunday (January 22nd) is International Pyjamas Day? It’s not as if I really need an excuse to spend my day in my pyjamas, but thanks to the Stigu planner I now have one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

One of the other things I really like about the planner is the amount of space available to write notes. Each weekly spread has a page for notes and 30 sheets of blank paper at the back for notetaking. This is something that other planners fail at I have found in the past.


I finally feel as if I have found the perfect planner for my work. It has made such a difference in how organised my day is in the short time I have been using it. And where in the past I would invariably feel myself getting stressed and anxious because I didn’t have a grasp on my basic day-to-day tasks, now I don’t get those feelings at all. 


I am really excited to be able to offer one reader the chance to win a spiral bound Stigu planner, like the one I have. All you need to do is complete the requirements as found within the rafflecopter widget below!

    I have never used a planner and that should be part of my goal to be more organised for 2017. It is definitely my goal to spend more defined time with my 2 kids with pre planned outdoor activities, crafts and baking. I’m sometimes not quite ready enough to bake a cake after realising I’ve no self-raising flour left. (Queue googling can i use plain flour instead?)
