Okay so the last time I did a BDJ Planner full feature was 2014. What I have now is the Belle De Jour 2021 Planner, so that’s 7 years ago! I’m curious as to what changed, especially as we are not really living in normal times right now. We’re still in the middle of a pandemic. I remember BDJ as a thick hardbound planner with a truckload of discount and freebie coupons from different brands and establishments.
So are we ready? Let’s meet the Belle De Jour 2021 Planner. Hardbound and thick? Yup, still is.
My daughter has been using the Starbucks Planner for school during the last few years. This year, I asked her to check out the Belle De Jour 2021 Planner. What do you know, she said she wanted to use it instead of her usual! She said BDJ makes it easy to organize what she needs to do (mostly schoolwork) because of the array of pages available for her to use. There are columnar pages arranged by date and time, grid-type pages, as well as freestyle blank pages.
There’s a magnetic bookmark included too. The planner is also equipped with all sorts of trackers — budget tracker, menstrual tracker, vacation planner, etc.
Pages are decorated simply, although the monthly dividers have more intricate artwork.
Of course, what’s a BDJ Planner without the coupons? They come in a separate Perks of a Bella booklet which fits nicely into the planner’s back pocket.
The Perks of a Bella booklet contains a membership card (with a QR code you can scan for member perks) and a whopping 64 coupons from different establishments, including online stores! Honestly, I was wondering about this since business is really bad now and there’ve been a lot of closures. I’m pleasantly surprised.
