BDJ Power Planner 2014

Being a Student, Employee and a Blogger – Planner has become my life. It keeps me alive and kicking! Imagine how hectic my schedule: I go to work early in the morning and school at night! If I have extra-time, I do blogging and attend events! 

Time Management is important to make sure that I get to finish everything on or before the deadline. Planner has helped me to keep track of all the appointments, assignments and all those stuff in a daily and monthly basis. 

BDJ Power Planner is one of the best planners I have ever used. It is especially designed to suit every girl’s lifestyle, plus gives me amazing discounts on some of my favorite brands!


BDJ says,
Belle de Jour Power Planner is especially made for the Pinay fashionista achiever. The term Belle de Jour (bel duh zhoor’) is French fashion lingo for “It” girl, we have redefined it to mean the modern day renaissance woman who dares to achieve her goals, lives her dream life, makes a difference in her community, while doing everything in great style.

The power planner includes time-management principles to help BDJ Girls manage their life better, articles and affirmations to inspire them to live life to the fullest and of course, coupons to remind them of work-life balance.


  • Dream Board: Knowing concretely what you want for yourself is one of the few steps to reach your goal.
  • Vacation Planner: Planning ahead of time is needed in order to have a successful vacation. Use this planner to organize the things you need to do before the dreamed vacation.
  • Random Thoughts: Throughout the week, we encounter new ideas, websites, proposals, etc. This section is for these new discoveries that you may want to go back to when you’re chilling out at home, relaxing. Who knows this could be your next big thing?
  • Goals Page: With everything moving fast as lightning it’s easy to lose track of what’s most important to us. Remember—that which matters the most should never give way to that which matters the least. Use these pages to keep focus and keep your life on track. 
  • #choosetoshine: List down your strategies on how you can conquer your fears and track your progress in 21 days.
  • 2014 Checklist: Here’s a BDJ Team certified things to do this 2014, to help you discover new things about yourself, and of course guide you to have a blast.
  • Tapestry Page: Take time to find ways to share your blessings with others. We also include advocacy challenges you can do this year.
  • Gift List/Tracker: For some, planning and categorizing what to give to whom help keep the budget manageable, after all what’s important is not the value but the thought behind it.
  • Events Tracker: For birthdays, anniversaries, conferences, important deadlines and product sales. Just note them down at the start of the year – so you won’t forget!
  • Bills and Cash Flow Tracker: Know your monthly bills. Budget your hard-earned money and keep track of your monthly expenses, shopping splurges included. We’ve added the cash flow tracker to help you see in a page your savings, your target savings, cash source or income and the main bulk of your expenses. Do note that you should tally your bill total from the bills tracker and input it on your cash flow tracker for non-bill items to be included. This way you realize where your money is going.
  • Health Plan: No amount of success or money can replace your health. Make sure you complete you annual check-ups.
  • Menstrual Tracker: BDJ Planner’s most popular feature – well you know what this is. Something to bring along when you visit the gyne.


Frankly, I do prefer “light-weight” planners. I find BDJ Power Planner a bit bulky for my taste. However, you can make it works for you! Here are my tips on how I use my BDJ Planner

  1. BDJ Planners contain 76 plus coupons which I’m sure you don’t want to carry on your planner all the time!! Remove all the coupons from the planner and cut it into pieces. 
  2. For easy retrieval of the coupons, organize it accordingly. I like separating the coupons from the most useful (I will definitely use) to less useful (I might or might not use)
  3. Arranging it according to claiming dates also helps
  4. I keep the coupons at the back pouch of the planner. Most of the time, I don’t take all the coupons with me, only those things that I planned to use or might use during the day. 
  5. I know that BDJ has included tons of Special pages that are really nice, especially the articles. These are very entertaining to read. But, bringing all these articles can sometimes be pain in the arse. So, to lessen the burden, I prefer to remove the pages that I won’t be really using. For instance, an article about BDJ Box subscription. I just read the content of the page then removed it from my planner! 
These are basically my tips to organize your planner to suit your lifestyle! And if there’s one thing I would like to add in next year’s planner: Inspiring Quotes about Life, Success, Beauty and whatnot.

But overall, if you’re looking for a GIRLY planner that will keep you organized, this is the ONE! I would love to get one of these again in the future! Job Well Done, BDJ!
