I ordered an expensive packed out planner last year and hardly used it, there was too much going on and I realised too late that it just wasn't functional or suitable for my needs. I came across Busy B through someone's post on Twitter and thought the Busy Life Diary sounded good, and the price would make it okay if I didn't go on to use it later. Once it arrived, I was pleased to see how simple yet functional and organised the planner is. With two schedules available per week, I can plan for my blog on one side and my personal life on the other, it makes things a lot easier to track and keep up with. I love that all the monthly calendars are viewable at the front of the diary, so I can flick through those easily, and each month has its own 'Reminders' section with pockets - I've taken to storing my monthly stickers in these. I can already see myself using this diary frequently, it's the perfect size to keep in your handbag and the cover material seems sturdy enough for it to be chucked into a backpack or in the car without resulting in damage. It's a beautiful planner, the quality is amazing (and I'm surprised at the price!), I'm glad I purchased this and will happily come back for another one for 2018.
This is the 2nd year I have bought this diary. There are 2 facing pages for each week which is fantastic - can keep my diary on one side & hubby's on the other. Plenty room to write in appointments & meetings with a handy notes section for reminders. The month to view is great as you can see at a glance everything for the month. Handy pen loop which is a must for a diary. You can keep tickets & notes you need in the pockets throughout the diary and with the elastic to keep it closed in your handbag no fear of losing anything. Love the classy & simple colours of this. Plus the sticky notes are great for a visual reminder that you have something urgent to do. Five star plus. *Please note that this customer has purchased the mini sticky notes separately for their diary*
Every year I look for my ideal diary and every year I seem to fail. Until now that is. Someone recommended the Busy Life Diary to me and I am so glad they did. For too long I have been trying to balance a work, guiding and personal diary and now I can do it all in one. Having the week over two pages means I have plenty of room to capture all of my appointments and the month to view at the front will allow me to plan out my blogs. At work we split the year into quarters so the reminder and pocket pages every three months will be perfect for planning work tasks. I also love the fact that there isn't loads of extra information like with most diaries. Simply beautiful!
I like the new addition at the beginning where you've done a month in view page. Best diary on the market!
I have just ordered my busy life diary for the third year running!! The two weeks side by side mean I can keep work and home plans completely separate, including any reminders. It just makes it so easy to see what I am doing and when! I did look at the To Do Diary this year as it was a bit smaller so would fit in my handbag but it doesn't have a slot for the sticky notes at the back and I use these ALL the time too so I can't do without them. If lots more products had a slot for the sticky notes it would encourage me to buy those too ;)
I bought this diary last year and I can honestly say it is my life saver! For a busy teaching life along with planning, meetings and a hungry family and kids to cook for it has helped me so much. I can't thank you enough busy b! I love how cute it looks, how affordable it is and how much information you can squeeze in there. I even bought the sticky notes to go on the back of the diary for just £3.99 and they are amazing. It has room for appointment letters/important documents so I always remember when I have an appointment to go to now. I couldn't live without it. I will definitely be purchasing another one again for 2016 :)
I have been using the Busy Life diary for a few years now and cannot imagine life without it - neither can my best friend, who now receives one too as part of her birthday present from me. We always laugh when we are together and pull out the same diary to organise our next catch up! The size and layout covers all the things that you need to keep track of family life and the handy pockets mean that important notes are always safe.
I was very pleased with the design and quality of the diary when it arrived. The layout is perfect and the storage areas really useful. I perhaps would have liked it a bit smaller, but I should have paid more attention to that, although I prefer this layout so wouldn't swap if for the smaller one. My only one wish, is that it had a plastic cover - removable perhaps for those who don't wish it - but a wipe clean diary is a really handy as I've had them before as they collect scuffs and marks in my bag. Otherwise delighted. Great deal with the calendar .
I have bought this Diary for years and I'm so glad it is back to the usual K TWO quality this year, as I was a little disappointed last year (the elastic wasn't as strong and the label stuck to the front). But this year the quality is back to normal and the label doens't stick on anymore. The dual schedule is the best feature, but the pen loop and storage pockets are great too!!
I just wanted to say how useful your busy b diary is. The diary has been a life saver as I am a teacher and have two school age children. Being able to have a home page and a school page has transformed my life. I have only just discovered your website and will be making a big order before Christmas. Thank you very much for saving the organisation of my family!!!
