Kaiserstyle "Oasis" Planner Review

Its the start of a new week and that means setting goals, "to do" lists and errands. 
We all need something to use and that has to be sufficient.  
So, upon learning more about the Kaiserstyle Planners, I had to get one (or two). 

In order to give a full review, 
I decided to actually use the beautiful "Oasis" Planner for one full week.

I am going to rate the planner by Looks, Price, Size, Usability, and Overall Feel. 
Scoring 1-5 with 5 being the best. 

 Looks. 5
Its beautiful. 
The leather is thick and durable. The print is beautiful. 
Its right along the lines of stylish and chic. Perfect for the work environment. 
There are 6 rings and they are a nice matte black. 
 It comes with

  • Twelve monthly dividers
  • Sixty week spreads non-dated
  • Twelve note pages
  • One band closure
  •  There is a pocket on the left inside flap. 
    I created this divider using paper and stickers. 
    The right flap doesn't have pockets, but I used it as a surface to write on. 
    It wraps around the front of the planner 
    to protect the tabs from the dividers. I believe.
    I wish it had a pocket as well. 

    Price. 4
    The price is perfect for what you get. Retail $25.00 
    I got mine at Scrapbook.com for $23.00 on sale. 
    I would say a good Retail price could be around $23.00. 
    However, it is made by an Australian based company,
     so I'm sure shipping and getting it to the states had play in that.
    So, I'll be fine with paying $25 to get something
    not native to the US. 

    Size. 4
    It measures, 4.75" x 7.5" x 1.25"
    The binder rings  measure .5" in diameter.  
    I think the size is great for jotting regular daily tasks. 
    If you have more to write down, you need a bigger space LOL 
    It was a great size for me. 
    I do wish the rings were a bit bigger so you can add in more pages
     if you needed. 
    This planner will get thick really quick.
    Usability 5
    I love the small size. Its not intermediating. And I felt like 
    Id use all the page without wasting space. Like I do with larger planners. 
    But with that being said, there aren't any monthly pages.
    By Thursday I desperately needed monthly pages.
     I had keep to glancing at the month from another source. 
    So, quick tip
    Print or write in a monthly calendar.

     The perfect place for that is on the front of the 
    monthly dividers provided in the planner already.
    I decorated mine to jazz it up of course.

    The Overall Feel 5
    With this planner I felt more like a business woman
    even though I added stickers to make it look less plain.
    I still felt like I had things to do, and not just a papercrafter decorating a planner. 
    This week, I filled my planner pages up and wasted no space. 
    I also checked off more boxes than I normally do and that's a great thing. 

    Final Thoughts
    I would recommend this planner to anyone.  
    Its perfect for jotting down your tasks.
    The weekly pages are clean and simple and the pattern is so current 
    with fashion, home decor and upscale stationery trends. 
    I think its a strong contender for pricier options, for people on a budget.  
    If you'd like to plan many different area's of your life...gym, kids, menus etc....then 
    try the larger A5 options that KaiserStyle has to offer. 

    Well there you have it. I hope you enjoyed this review.
