How to make your Starbucks Planner worth keeping?

I have been using planners for a long time now.  I always want to record important events in my life.  I also often forget appointments and birthdays that’s why it really helps to have them listed in my planner.  For the past two years, I’ve been using Starbucks Planners and I just love them.  I think Starbucks Philippines has the best designed planners.  I also love the idea that you get it for free just by drinking coffee.  And I love coffee that’s why it’s easier for me to collect the necessary number of stickers to avail a free planner.😉

When I got my 2014 Starbucks planner late last year, I realized that I should do something different with it.  I had so many planners before and after using them I just threw them away.  I don’t want to do that this year. I want to keep my planner and make it as memorable as possible.  That is when I decided to make it a PHOTO DIARY PLANNER.

I love taking pictures and having them printed.  It is time to incorporate my love for taking pictures and writing in a Starbucks planner.  Here is the outcome:

That’s my Starbucks Planner 2014, and it has become a photo diary / album which i will keep for the rest of my life.😉

Now that I am in another country, these pictures help me ease the loneliness that I feel here.  It was really a great decision to have this photo diary/ album / PLANNER.😀😛  ;)

And Starbucks has just started their 2015 planner tradition. I am just envious now coz’ I am not in the Philippines and I won’t be able to get a planner this year.  How I wish Starbucks UAE would also have planners to give to their customers.  But I think that’s impossible considering that UAE doesn’t celebrate Christmas.

I just hope that some of my friends would send me a planner or I could find someone who would sell his/her planner to me. hahaha

This is how 2015 Starbucks Planners look like:

  1. i perfectly feel you.. ive been using starbucks planners for years.. except for next year.. coz im also here in UAE.. =( that’s how i came upon your blog actually.. was trying to find “starbucks planner in UAE”.. my heart skipped.. i thought youre the answer.. then i read your blog.. i got sad even more.. waaaaaa..!!

  2. you can buy planner then have it ship there. SB P2015 is being sold for only 2000pesos below. Funny kasi mabibili mo sya ng 7K using your SB Card eh ang mura lang niya sa OLX. i already got 3 planners and my 4th one is about to finish. Since you guys are abroad then have someone you trust to buy it online. rather than buying 18 drinks. then have it ship there.

    goodluck!!! keep safe there.

    • Thanks Jimbo… For an sb coffee drinker like me… yung 18 kasi kayang kaya na. hehehe… so free na xa kung tutuuusin. with or without the planner, nagcocoffee naman. kaya sayang talaga…

      I mhoping na one of my friends would give me a planner. hahaha

      Thanks for dropping by… Pag wala talaga, baka sundin ko advise mo. hehehe
