Review: 2012 Filed! Planner

I'm so happy today. Elated. Pleased. Satisfied. I always feel like this whenever I acquire something I feel proud of. Today, it was this planner I got from Fully Booked, made by Filed! Cooperative.

Two days ago, a Facebook friend posted a photo of a certain "pen bandolier" which apparently is a belt that holds a dozen of pens strapped onto a notebook. I thought the idea was amazing. Why? Because I've always been annoyed of constantly rummaging through my bag for pens just so I can write on my planner.

So anyways, I closely examined the photo and found out the bandolier's sold together with a planner. I had no intentions of buying one actually. Because I'll be going to Korea next month and I'm sure I'll be able to find a really cute planner there. But hell, that'll be next month. January.

So I visited and started ordering online. Turned out they were out of stock and can only replenish today. I just decided to visit Fully Booked BHS to personally get one. Sinong atat? Kekeke.

So... here you go! My 2012 planner courtesy of Filed! I love love love it. It's perfect. It's artsy. It's complete. Well, for me, it is. I actually started coloring already. I bought 6 colored pencils. Will just add more. I can buy color pens in Korea. Haha.

1. the pen slots on the bandolier are quite small? i spent about an hour looking for the best-fitting colored pens and pencils and ended up with Dong-A twistable colored pencils
