Target Dollar Spot planner review

February 8

Target Dollar Spor planner review. This budget planner is a great start to monthly and weekly planning. It has a ringed binder similar to filofax, kate spade, kikki k, and others.

If you’ve been to target lately then you know about the wonderful section known as the Dollar Spot, or more recently, Spot’s Playground. This glorious part of the store is where you can snag super cute goodies for one, three, and sometimes five dollars.  The contents change seasonally, and lately they have had tons of cute paper goodies.  After the removal of the Christmas products, the stores started carrying calendars and planners for the new year.  Lovers of adorable office supplies and planners were enamored with these items and I was too.  I purchased the three ring binder and inserts to test out. The binder was $3.00 and the inserts pack (Monthly and weekly undated with dividers) were $3.00 as well.

Are these not the cutest ever?

I made this into a blog planner where I can write down my to dos, planned posts, contacts, and other information; so that it is all in one place.

These are the weekly inserts

Overall for $6.00 this is a great basic planner.  The paper quality isn’t amazing, but I don’t think it can be for $3.00.  I find using pencil is best to avoid bleed-through.  My binder does not like to stay closed when I have it set on a table; I am not sure if this is an issue with all of them or just mine.  Of course this item does not have pockets or pen loops, but I don’t think anyone expected it to.

 The inserts in this binder are half sheet inserts with three rings.  This means that you can easily print out your own inserts at home, but the binder would not work with purchased A5 or A6 inserts.

I created my own notes paper for this planner to do with as a please. I’ll add this as a free printable in the near future.

Overall I think this is a great planner for people like me who are considering a ringed planner. I think my next purchase will be a a5 planner but I wanted to make sure I would like the rings. (They can be hard for lefties like myself.) I also think this would be a great choice for kids as teens.
Do you have this planner or one of their other planners and calendars?  What do you think of it?

    I think you should do a video on how you did everything. If you would like watching this youtube video. She showes many helpful ways for it to be useful and very beneficial. (Pockets, dashboards, and etc)
