Planner Packs Subscription Box Review December 2015 and Coupon Code

Planner Packs is just the thing a planner addict needs in their life! What could be better than getting a box that will give you a supply of stickers, washi tape, pens, and all kinds of other cool stuff to fill your planner days?!

Since I just got my first planner, I'm really excited about getting creative and decorating it to my hearts content. I think something like Planner Packs is fun because it gets you out of a possible creative rut but also provides SO MUCH stuff that you'll never run out of ideas or things to do with what arrives.

The Cost: $23.48/month ($17.99 plus $5.49 shipping)

What You Get: Every Planner Packs monthly box will include some recurring items such as pens, washi tape, and stickers. There are also extra special items found on Etsy or from other suppliers.
Stickers, Stickers and More Stickers! Squares, rectangles, triangles, oh my! Every shape I could possibly need! Plus banners, notes, inspirational quotes and a set of weekly schedule sticky notes. Totally using those. I'm going to stick as much of this as I can into my planner! Mine doesn't start til January but I've already started decorating!
Washi Tape! Four purple and pink, patterned washi tape rolls. These are so cute and I can't wait to decide what to do with them. I read this article and got some unusual ideas. For now it's going to be for notating vacation days. Or I might also decorate my planner cover.

I actually needed one of the penholder planner bands, too. It's stretchy (maybe too stretchy since my planner isn't packed yet) and I love the metallic dots.
Card inserts, masking stickers and sticky note tags. I am happy to see these masking stickers. I didn't even know they were a thing! Now I can prettily cover up my mistakes and write over them. I can add pops of color to boring pages or whatever I want! I love the bright colors. Plus there are circles, fat rectangle shapes, skinny rectangles, and solid sheets so you can cut whatever shape you want.

Also included are cardstock cards that can be used as bookmarks, stuck in as notes or lists, or reminders. I think my favorite thing might be the sticky note tags though. They're already one of my favorite things to use in everyday life and now I have a new stash of them!
Two Gelly Roll pens- one black and one silver metallic. They both write beautifully, too. There is a double sided card with daisies included, too. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet but I'll find something.
These must be some "special extras" included for fun. One is a hardbound, lined notebook and the other is a cloth zip pouch for pencils. It's not made very well and the typos on the little label are pretty hardcore. It didn't find anything that specifically said "made in China" but it's my best guess since it says "What sunshine to is flowers, Smiles to are humanity." It did make me smile and it's a pretty cute pencil pouch either way. I'm just surprised it made it in the box. :D
Becky Higgins Rotating Stamp- I love this! It's a fun, motivational stamp for all kinds of things. I have a stamp pad so I can use this as soon as I decide where I want to start. I'm thinking a fun card for my husband to find on his desk.

VERDICT: This is such a fun subscription if you are looking for an easy way to get new goodies to decorate your planner along with some extra, more substantial products. I'm glad to know they'll always include things like pens because I'm constantly losing mine. I'm going to try really hard not to lose this pretty silver one, though. I'm not super familiar with values on these products since I have only just been getting into it but it seems to me that this comes out to be worth right around the price paid for it. There's such a variety and I love that! Sometimes it's nice not to have to buy a whole package of the same thing when you only want a couple.

If you would like to sign up for Planner Packs, you can do that right here. Use coupon code BITS15 or CRATE15 for 15% off! You'll start with the January 2015 box (unless it's sold out).

Do you love your planner and decorate it? There's a huge community of planner lovers out there who make it an art form!
