We still have over a month to go until the new year, but we are already eager to plan our affairs for 2012 (think: buying tickets for promo flights for our summer trips, yes?). So, as early as now, you should decide what kind of planner you need next year and snag it ASAP, so you can start jotting down your plans, trips, birthdays, anniversaries, parties, and eventually appointments, meetings, deadlines, and more--as early as now.
Different brands have released special planners for our various purposes and tastes. For instance, your favorite coffee places Starbucks, Seattle's Best Coffee, and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf offer free planners and journals after completing a certain number of drink purchases, making your daily caffeine fix more rewarding. They also help you celebrate the season of giving by promoting generosity and donating portions of their profits to admirable children's causes.
Meanwhile, kikay girls will love the books offered by Beauty Bar and Belle de Jour, which are tailored to the needs of stylish and empowered women. Filed and Navi also offer very practical planners for both students and jetsetters who have jam-packed schedules to manage.
Still can't decide which one is for you? Launch the gallery to see and read about each of these 2012 planners we've mentioned and more!

BDJ planner is perfect for me. super affordable in our age group, young professionals. I also like the whole look and feel, very feminine and everything is organized from expense tracker, to-do's, menstrual tracker, etc. Plus it's packed with amazing gift certificates/coupons from local partners. :)

43. Oooh.. coffee moments are great for almost everyone of us who's always on the go and it makes it even greater and maybe even more convenient with a planner that goes well with the coffee and all those busy schedules just like the Starbucks planner, the Seattle's Best planner, or even the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf planner.

While my GF loves the BDJ planner, I go for the Navi. Perfect for guys on the go. A great way to track your day to day activities, goals and adventures.

BDJ is every kikay girl's perfect planner. My first one was way back in 2009 when I was still in college. I love the colorful layout and the coupons! I love this year's BDJ cover - Paris. It's one of my dream destinations. BDJ will help me achieve my dreams one step at a time. :)

Sorry, number 38's mine. I got too excited and didn't see I was logged in my sister's account... I like the BDJ Planner. I think I'm starting to become more of a lady now (especially since I've just turned 20), so it's perfect! XD

I am torn between BDJ or Paulo Coelho Moments Agenda. I want the BDJ; it's really THE planner for girls. However, Moments Agenda interests me, since I love Paulo Coelho's books so much! :D hmmm.

36. I loooovee the Belle de Jour planner because it's really useful for a lady like me who gots lots of things in line for my schedule. Having a planner of BDJ helps keep my feminine touch in every note I can put on it and keeps everything organized the lady way. I also love the coupons it comes with it making every shopping moment a great one. :) I also like its extra pages like the portion where I could monitor my menstruation cycle which is very helpful for me, and the habit tracker which help a lady keep track the good side of her personality,, :D

I super love this article, where I can choose from over 9 planners which all of them are efficacious. These planners will help me so much on planning all the things I want to be done. It will help me to compose thoughts of mine into reality. My friend gave me a BDJ planner last year, from then on it was my favorite and it helped me so much on planning and scheduling when to meet my friends from time to time. My favorite planners are BDJ , Filed, CBTL, Paulo Coelho Moments Agenda, and Seattle's Best Coffee Dream Journal. Ahwww almost all of the planners are my favorites and has extraordinary designs on it. I want to have one of these planners. I hope to have one. :)

My favorite planner is Navi because I could write all my important meetings and reflections during the day. Aside from that I find the coupons worth to use because I was able to save budget and at least the items were not that expensive. I would like to have the Belle De Jour Planner 2012 so that I can give it to my one and only love in my life as the greatest gift.

Power of Angel
Belle De Jour Planner is my bestfriend wherein I am writing all my plans and agendas. It helps me to remember on what to do everyday. It helps me a lot especially in terms of tracking down the personal expenses, gift items, events, and other period. More so the coupons were really useful to me because of that we were able to save our budget when my boyfriend and I are dating. That is why I am looking forward to have this Belle De Jour planner 2012 so that I can continue writing my plans. My other bet here are Starbucks, Seattle's Best Coffee, and The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf because we are really a coffee lover and coupons are very useful to us. Same with the coupons of BDJ planner we were able to save budget during our date. Even if I have 3 or more planners I can use them all everyday. Because in the starbucks planner I am writing my reflections while in CBTL journal I am listing down the plans and summary of what to do especially the job interviews.
