Do you think an expensive journal or planner is worthy to purchase?

Rachel Z.
I depends I like one that prompts what type of stuff and where to write it. It helps organize my thoughts and keep that space for the correct purpose.

When you write in a nicer planner it does help with the feeling that your writing something important. The downside of its expensive you can get a little anxious about choosing to write in it. I personally choose a nicer looking planner on the cheap side because it reduces anxiety

Try bullet journaling .just a dotted journal medium price and your thoughts and feelings and a new hobby as you can be as creative as you want.look on Pinterest for some ideas to inspire

Najoua R.
No !!! Definitely not ! A simple one is great !! Why would choose an expensive one ? You won’t show it to anyone right ? I mean it’s supposed to be personal .. I do like beautiful things I picked up a very nicely designed journal but it does not have to be expensive …

Merry F.
I think it depends on if the planner is good. Personally I don't have a planner, I don't think it's necessary because you can do pretty much all planner things on your phone. You can even download a planner app.

Brandon C.
I don’t really think that an expensive journal or planner does so much a difference. Journaling is more like when you feel it. But if this could help you to remind you to journaling yes why not. But it’s not necessary.

Merry F.
It depends on the features of the journal and your own understanding of yourself. Noting down your thoughts and your plans is definitely helpful. However, if you don't like it, or are uncomfortable with writing random thoughts in an expensive journal, it's not a good purchase. If it's a big journal that you have to keep at home, while often spending your time away, you won't be seeing it much. If it's a small pocket thing and you like to write a lot, it'll be full before you know it. Investing in a journal is always a good idea, but think smart about what you're investing in and what you want out of it. For me, a small free memo app on my phone works ideally to keep track of my thoughts. For you, a large beautiful book might do the same=)

Lily F.
I think so, best go for a pretty one that’s a mid range price because you’ll be more likely to use it and the good quality will make you feel more productive and put together

Lynne Q.
I thought about that same question when buying mine. I decided that if it had the features I would gladly use it daily. I wanted a soft leather with larger pages to write & one that I could organize in sections. I did pay a little more, but, I treasure & use daily. I love reading & writing all my things into it.

Bonnie N.
If you already journal and it is part of your routine then sure, go for it
But if you’re just starting don’t risk the chances of leaving empty a pretty, expensive and new journal

Valia N.
From my experience – no. I have bought quite a number of expensive notebooks and journals for the purpose of planning and I have never used them consistently and for a long time. What is important is the practice. The practice of setting time for yourself – to think about where you are and where you are going. To reflect on the journey. A cheap notebook would do just fine 🙂

Duarte Y.
Yes because if it’s some that you buy or are in love with you’re more likely going to use it. I love a bargain but you have to add value where you want to create value.

Bonnie N.
Nope. There are a lot of free sources available. It would be worth if included in the premium package , a personal journal, with the possibility to share the content or not .

Meli N.
I would suggest you go for a planner or a journal that cheers you up and stand out among other notebooks. Whenever you look at it, you want to hold it in your hands, and you trust sharing your deepest feelings with. Hope it helps 🙂

Merry F.
It depends! Sometimes the cheeper ones are the ones I need. Get the journal or planner that fits your needs!
Pro tip: getting a journal or planner that you like and is cute is one of the best ways to be consistent in journaling or planning in my opinion!!

Much love! MJ💕

Merry F.
I am partial to a lovely journal. I would highly recommend d that anyone find a journal that speaks to them. This way, writing in it regularly will be a pleasure. There are so many different kinds and styles to choose from that there is no real reason that if someone wants to begin Journaling they can start a great habit.

Hilda Z.
Since you are determined in what you gonna do to rebuild yourself, there is no need for expensive and luxury planners or other stuff

Talytha Z.
No. I think any journal is fine as long as it’s lined. An expensive journal is better for work. Any paper is better to write down thoughts – even scrap paper.

Madina N.
If you like the color or quality of the diary, it’s better to spend some money and enjoy the purchase! Cause every time it will give you joy to write and carry this diary, as it’s already has been purchased with positive vibe!

Anna S.
Well it depends. I buy expensive notebooks because I have some money to spare and I notice that I feel better writing in something with a cover I really like. That being said, I journal a lot, so I think it’s worth it for me. If you want to see if it’s worth it for you, maybe try journal in both a cheap and an expensive one and see if you notice the difference much

Maggie Z.
Not too expensive but it depends. I love to write a book that calls to me that invites me to journal so that’s a little more expensive than an exercise book. I also love learning from my entries so keeping it is an option for me so I spend a little more money to hold on to it. It feels better in my hands too. So if it’s in the budget I go for one that’s a little more solid and won’t fall apart down the road.

Emma Y.
tummy fat. idk. body sculpting which means working supporting muscles it changes the shape of your torso. as a woman I dont want to loose bf because the first place it goes from is your chest. well to loose a certain amount of bf depends on your personal goals also some people find tummies attractive. its personal preference. I've been attracted to men because they do have a bit of a tummy. it's a strange one.

after I had the twins I was left with what my midwife gf called a matrons apron. basically the tummy hangs. I had a c section. but I also know at the Tim I managed through body sculpting to get rid of it so I know it is possible. but its weighing up weather it's worth you time and effort. I learnt the shape of my body made no difference to how I was treated by my then partner so.. it is what it is. protein rich breakfast ? what do you fancy? I've just had five baklava and a black coffee. that's fairly protein Rick 😏

Sabina E.
I absolutely think it's worth the investment, as long as it's the right one for you. Investments of time in finding the right one for you can include understanding why previous planners may not have worked – sometimes the right planner is one you design yourself, either by hand in bullet journaling or with custom printing.

Elizabeth B.
The choice is really up to you, but I would say no. This is only because you could get an single piece of paper, write or draw questions, charts or whatever you want and do it on there. You don’t need to waste your money, but it is easier to write things on the journals or planners- again, all up to you!

Robin W.
If it helps you to stick to journaling, sure. For me it was just important that my journal (and pen) look nice so when they're lying around in my room and I look at them it makes me feel good

Timeo E.
No
I really don't think an expensive journal is needed
Cause what is needed is pages to be filled
With yr planning
And anything you want to put on paper
So even if you take a small diary or even some pages
It will do the work

Anya N.
For me, I use whatever journal I have, it takes a long time to get through it. For planners, yes! I love the Moleskin weekly journals from Chapters/Indigo, with the week on one side to schedule events, and lined paper on the right side for my To-do lists.

Merry F.
I don't really think like you have to buy an expensive one.Well, even you can take just a notebook and you can use it as a planner. But if you say"it needs to be expensive and brand new" than you can. But not necessary.

Tim E.
I think an expensive journal can be important. It depends on what one is journaling. I have several journals. Some are for very private thoughts. A gratitude journal should be worthy. A regular hole punch basic spiral notebook. Is not a good option for me. They will fall apart or pages will become missing. A journal should have a good spine with strong pages. I like to look back on my journaling. I have beautiful journals with different covers some are leather some are cloth some are cardboard. It's important to have something to mark your page like a ribbon built in the book. That's my feelings on journals.

Gris N.
Only if it’s something you really want. Probably give it a couple weeks to think about. If you still want it after that time frame go for it.

Merry F.
If it hleps to start journaling and make you more motivated to write in it i think it's worthy but if it doesn't help then there is no need for buying it

Merry F.
I actually don't use planners so to me, it's just an unnecessary expense in itself, but if that's something that you do and enjoy doing, go for it. It might be nice for you.

Mylan T.
Read the part of the book a view times and just keep trying until you can read it out loud bjt not go 2 fast bc they need time to hear the story!📖

Merry F.
No I don’t think that buying a expensive planner is worth it cause you could get a cheap planner to do the same thing but then again it does depend on what you want to use it for so if you are really dedicated to doing something and you know you will use the planner and/ or journal than by all means go and buy it.

Hallie W.
If it’s going to motivate you to use it, yes. I tried that and it didn’t work for me. I actually use an app that reminds me every day. I would love to be the kind of person who can sit down with a lovely journal and a nice pen and drink some tea and write each day. But it just wasn’t what worked for me.

Baptiste N.
If you want my answer, I honestly think it’s up to you. I know you’re asking me because you want a quick, easy decision, but it depends on how you feel. I simply use an old composition notebook for my journal, but if you think you’ll journal better if you have a nice one, feel free to buy one! Most people aren’t going to judge you based on how your journal looks.

August P.
No I don't, I think journaling is personal. A blank book to doodle if that's your way. A book with questions to inspire your thoughts. Or just a lined composition notebook. I have one of each, haven't decided what I like as yet

Christopher Z.
Not really, unless it is designed in a way that is just what you're looking for or will motivate you to use it. Many notebooks are expensive but I find almost anything will do, even free ones. What I think is important is building the habit. Once you've done that then you can invest in a nice notebook that you can continue to build your habit with.

Melaine S.
Purchasing an expensive journal depends on a person's preference. I'd really suggest you purchase a good quality journal that serves it's purpose because that's all that matters most (the quality & not the price tag)

Marie Z.
yes! i think an expensive journal/planner will really help you with getting your life back on track and i believe that it is worth it for your mental health:)

Lucy T.
I think that, if you are going to be using it a lot and if having an expensive journal will be beneficial to you (for example if you want a more expensive journal with thicker paper so you can paint into it), then yes i think investing in a nice journal may be a good idea. However, to create a ‘successful’ journal you do not need expensive equipment, it is how you make use of said tools.
Hope this helps 👍

Martin Z.
I thought about that too, but then i bought quite basic one and i am happy using it 🙂 after all it is about writting in it, so if you feel like it would be nice to get the expensive one, which will motivate you to write in it, then go ahead 🙂 But as i have said – i have the basic journal and i have never missed a day in almost a year.

Bonnie N.
I am almost always on screen. However, when i do not procrastinate in the morning, my day begins and goes one more productively and calm. Same if before sleep i take a book to read instead of watching series or movie

Michelle O.
I like to treat myself to a fancy journal, it helps get the creative juices flowing 🙂 and makes me want to write in it more.

Kristin F.
If it makes you feel good, then yeah! Go for it! If you don’t feel like you’ll gain from it then no, you don’t have to. For me, the feel of the leather bound tome in my hands, written on with a rose pen dipped in fancy vibrant inks … it does something to my mind and I like it. My sis likes the notebook she bought for 98 cents with a cat on it. It’s all about you!

Terrence J.
When it comes to journals and planners, I believe the more the format fits your needs and personality, the more likely you’ll be to use it consistently and boost your productivity. For some people that means more expensive planners, for some it’s a planner from the dollar store, and for others they create their own.

Olivia U.
No I don’t think it is worth the purchase because all you are doing is spending a lot of money for the cover. Getting a journal isn’t about the cover it’s about what you write in it. I won’t spend more than 20 dollars on a journal or planner cause my words are worth more than the paper is

Bonnie N.
It definitely is. Even if it can sound like a waste of money and you can just use whatever notebook to have a place where everyone is and looks pretty and organize is also helping to pur eyes to read, review and reflect.

So don't hesitate, choose a nice compact motivating one and rock the year

Kesly Z.
I don't really like cheap ones. I've been journaling for several years now. I found I stay motivated with a good journal (quality paper, good model), because remember it's gonna be with you for a long while (hopefully). When looking to purchase one, I just connect with one and I buy it no matter the price, sometimes they're cheap and sometimes a bit pricey but still totally worth it.

Jules O.
Sometimes. If it’s something that will help you stick to your goals by getting you excited or motivated to write in it, then yes.

Bonnie N.
Well, if a nice-looking journal can encourage you to write stories every day,
then it would be worth the money to purchase it. It can be inviting and that's the most important. Getting the energy to write because the book itself is gorgeous. I don't see any problems with that.

Sulfur T.
I would never bother buying a journal more than $15 honestly. The purpose of a journal or a planner is to have something that you can use to vent your thoughts or jot down a schedule – it definitely doesn’t have to look fancy.

Juliana C.
I would only buy something more expensive only when I’m a little more experienced in journaling. When you’re just beginning, it’s better not to put a lot of money into it, you’ll do just fine even with cheaper stuff.

Kacey N.
Yeah, I think so. If it encourages you to write, and makes the ritual more enjoyable, then I say it’s worth it. But I don’t have separate journals, like this app suggests. I use one journal for everything.

Ar S.
No, because I would rather utilize the things I currently have or free things I can find, unless, I am using it constantly for a year and it became part of my routine, and if this planner could cater to most of my planning needs then, I might consider buying it.

Joy P.
It could be sure. I think whatever vision someone has for themselves and they seek out the resources they need to achieve then why not. If you think you will be more motivated to use it because it is expensive or something maybe that will be a motivator. Or maybe just investing in yourself in a way that will help you reach your goals. I think it is always depending on the person buying it but I can see it being useful.

Mikol S.
It not depends on the person and the product. If the product was worth the purchase with journaling prompts or inspirational quotes than it is worth more than just the paper. It also depends on the person. If someone had spent the $ on a quality journal than they know they invested in themselves to record and capture their precious memories and thoughts. While if it was just a blank notebook of plain paper, it might just sit on the shelf, but if it was filled with little treasures of wisdom or prompts, it becomes a journey.

Perhaps having each page still sealed together, and the purchaser will need to use a letter opener to reveal the treasure of wisdom or writing prompt or adventure to experience I know I would absolutely purchase something like that.

Nancy F.
If this is the beginning of a journey that you have tried in the past and failed, I would recommend keeping it simple. You can make it special by what you achieve. You can look forward to purchasing something more rarified when this practice is old hat.

Khalilha U.
Not necessarily, especially if you’re just getting started journaling. I think it’s good to get a cute, simple one that you like and then as you use it you might discover additional features you wished it had, and you can consider treating yourself to a more fancy journal for your next one. I often go for fancy planners then rarely end up using most of the features!

Merry F.
Not really, it depends on who buys it. An expensive planner does give the idea that I'm being serious, but when I do lose interest, it's just a waste of money. I usually go for something simple and practical that isn't too expensive, so I can stay focused without throwing away money

Elizabeth B.
I think it depends. If it's not something you already know you want to do, then I think it's better to go with a cheaper option. However, if it's something you like to do then I see nothing wrong with getting a more expensive journal. I have a little of both, and both is great in it's own way.

Majda E.
I think it depends on the kind of person you are, if your a person who loves keeping memories I would definitely spend more time and money on a journal so it’s not only beautiful on the inside, but also something you can be proud of.

Same for a planner, when you are a busy person I would definitely spend more money on a planner. That way it good organized so you won’t have to mis a thing, and even have some time for yourself.

Majda E.
It depends on your personal finances. If something fancy will make you feel inspired to journal, then by all means get one. However, any journal can suit your needs especially if you do not have the money to splurge on an expensive one. What's important is that you are journaling.
