Are you a planner, list maker; someone that is very organised? I envy you because I am terrible. Don’t get me wrong, I’m actually an avid list maker but my organising and planning just never seem to happen. In the past, I have purchased so many diaries and planners, which have just gathered dust as I never used them. As a blogger, I really need to be more organised and I especially need to plan ahead more. I’m very much a last-minute person. So, consequently, everything becomes a mad rush in the end. I really want to make a concerted effort in 2022 to actually plan and schedule not only my blog posts but the social media side of things too. Especially as my memory is just terrible these days, thanks to fibro fog, meds and menopause. I swear I’m lucky I remember my own name these days. I’m finding I’m forgetting deadlines way too often as well. Coming to my rescue is Dodo Pad.
What is a Dodo Pad?
As I previously mentioned, I have used many different planners and diaries trying to find one that suits my needs. Whilst all the previous ones I’ve bought have been good, they’ve just not suited me. I often come up with ideas late at night and I really wanted something I could grab and scribble ideas down in.
This is why Dodo Pad is perfect for me. You see, it’s a week to view diary on the right page and the left page is where you can doodle, scribble ideas, jot notes down; basically space for you to use as creatively as you want to. I love that there’s a whole page I can just use for things that pop into my mind. I don’t have to have a separate notebook or pad, which I inevitably lose at some point. There’s a very handy pocket at the back of the Pad so you can keep things like the stickers in there.
There are no hard and fast rules with the Dodo Pad. No constraints on how you use it; just use it however you want to. Which is why I already love it so much. I can use it to suit my exact needs.
Created and designed by eminent scribbler, enthusiastic adventurer, and impeccable organiser Lord Dodo of the Doodle Empire, this colourfully illustrated week-to-view diary is here to save you and your family from being made extinct by modern life’s stresses.
Creative, Colourful and Whimiscal
The colourful and whimsical Dodo Pad also has lot’s of unique illustrations, dates of interest, quotes and something humorous on every page. It always makes me smile when using it, that much I know. It definitely allows you to be very much your authentic self when using it. It’s a very quirky diary and I love that about it. I think it actually inspires creativity because it does things outside of the box. There is nothing remotely boring or ordinary about the Dodo Pad!
Along with the Dodo Pad, you can also buy Save the Day stickers separately. Or you can purchase the Dodo Pad and stickers together. The stickers are so cute. All the illustrations were done by Sir John Verney, aka Lord Dodo, who created the Dodo Pad in 1965.
Dodo Pad is working to push individuality, personality and sustainability to the forefront.
Distinctly Against Extinction
Another reason to invest in a Dodo Pad for next year is that they are improving their green credentials. What does that mean? Well, they are under new management and they are evolving in the care of new owner Mafalda Spinola. So now the entire Pad is 100% PLASTIC FREE, Sustainable and Vegan-Friendly!
- 120 gsm, FSC certified, sustainable, acid-free paper
- Vegetable inks for printing
- Wiro binding
- Vegetable-based, biodegradable cover lamination
So, you get a diary that won’t be harming the environment, plus it’s pretty neat to write in too because the paper is just so smooth.
How Much Do They Cost?
The Dodo Pad Original Desk Diary retails for £17.95 and includes free save the day stickers worth £3.95. There are other versions available such as an A5 size, mini, wall planner. So there’s bound to be one size that fits your needs.
