TinyChange 2021 Pro Planner Review
I am a huge sucker of stationery products. Is it sensical if I say that I have tons of planners? Well, I guess so, what else can you expect from a stationery lover? Today, I will be reviewing the TinyChange 2021 ProPlanner Review. I’ve been using the TinyChange Planner since a long time. I have their dated and undated planner and I had to lay my hand on the new TinyChange 2021 ProPlanner. I placed its order way back in November because I had to start planning in advance. No points for guessing that I’m a huge planner.
Without further ado, let’ me give you a detailed review of the product.
The planner arrived in a wonderful black box with the quote., “Big Ideas Have Small Beginning”. The golden quote appears bright against the black background with golden dots. The very first look of the product wows you and you get the feeling that you are about to conquer the universe! Trust me, if you use the planner properly, you might actually conquer the universe!
The cover of the planner is plain black. The logo and the name of the planner is embossed in golden color against the black cover. Nothing fascinating there. It looks good but not great. The entire planner is in the shade of black, brown and grey, which might give both classy and dull look depending upon your taste.
For me, personally, I would have preferred the planner a bit colourful. There’s space for coloring in all the monthly dividers, you can use it to make your planner a bit colorful. Also, you can glam it up with stickers and colorful pens!
The TinyChange 2021 ProPlanner is a huge planner. It doesn’t come in the usual A5 size. It’s available in the B5 size which is larger than the classic planner of TinyChange.
For me that’s a relief because the large size of the planner provides you with ample amount of pace to plan your year, month and day. The time block for each day, plus the weekly overview in a single glance is possible because of the size of the planner.
FUNCTIONALITY OF TinyChange 2021 Pro Planner
What’s the point of having a planner if it doesn’t serve its functionality. When it comes to functionality, I will have to give full points to this planner. It has made planning everything so easy! Wondering why? I will tell you!
