Happy New Year! I hope the start of 2017 has been well for everyone. Well today, I am featuring three free planners which are great means to help everyone optimize the year ahead. But first, let me address this question: why even consider a paper planner when digital planners are conveniently available?
Personally, a paper and a pen give me the freedom to create a system that works for me. And in this day and age, where we are all glued on our phones and computers, it’s refreshing to be able to actually write on paper. I am a very forgetful person, and the process of writing with a pen and paper, kinda’ makes it easier for me to remember things. This results to consistently staying organized. You feel the same way? Read on then. 😉 iLuvCebu, iLuvCebu.com, I Love Cebu, We Love Cebu, Cebu, Cebu Philippines, Mactan Cebu, Mandaue Cebu, Metro Cebu, Best Blog in Cebu, Cebu Best Blog, Cebu best blogger, Cebu best events blog, Cebu Best fashion Blog, Doyzkie best male blogger in cebu, Andrew Doyzkie Buenaviaje, Andrew Buenaviaje, Cebu Top blog, top blogs in the Philippines, Visayas Best blogs, Best food blog in cebu, best fashion blog in cebu, best gadget review in cebu, cebu best blogger, cebu top blogger, cebu famous blog, cebu influencers, cebu online influencers, doyzkie buenaviaje, travel blogger, cebu travel blogge, Cebu fashion bloggers, cebu style bloggers, cebu male fashion bloggers, where to eat in cebu, where to go in cebu, Cebu Fashion Bloggers, Cebu Bloggers, Men fashion bloggers in cebu.

——–Three Awesome 2017 Planners that you can get for Free——
The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf’s The Giving Journal 2017, Starbucks 2017 Planner and Serenitea’s A Year to Rejuvenate Journal 2017 are planners I scored for FREE, and they are all awesome. Each of these planners have different characteristics. No one size fits all, so first thing is to find the right planner that works for you.

Planners have a singular purpose and that is providing us with space to remind us of what needs to be done on a daily basis. Starbucks and Serenitea’s 2017 Planners would be perfect for people who want that straight to the point kind of planner. The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf’s the Giving Journal on the other hand, has added inspirational themes and quotes on every page; perfect for those who needs a little more push of motivation on a daily basis.

So how do we get our hands on these planners? 

1. The Limited Edition Starbucks Planner 2017 
Patrons need the Starbucks Traditions Promo Card  which they can get for free with a beverage purchase. And for every Starbucks Handcrafted beverage purchased, a sticker is awarded.
