ICYMI: These Drinks Will Help You Organize Your 2019 With These Planners

For all you planner addicts out there


With only a couple more months before 2018 ends, people are starting to look back and reflect on their life choices for the year. Some are even starting to write their New Year’s resolutions as early as now. Which is why November is deemed as the season of collecting stickers for planners, and a couple of establishments are jumping on this train. Here are three cafes that will reward you with a journal in exchange for a few cups of drinks.

The craze over Starbucks Planners dates back over a decade ago. It has been here for awhile now that some people regard it as a Christmas tradition already. From leatherbound to wooden covers, it seems that your favorite coffee shop will never run out of aesthetic gimmicks. This year, they decided to give their patrons not just planners, but also travel organizers. The planner comes in two colors – the espresso (brown) and milk (white), while the latter is available in dark teal or sienna. In order to get one, you need to be able to complete 18 stickers,so go ahead and schedule HOHOLs over coffee!

Every year, CBTL also gives out a planner called The Giving Journal. It’s aptly named because for every planner that a customer claims, proceeds go to the Real LIFE Foundation which gives educational assistance to the less fortunate. The 2019 journal comes in 4 designs – 2 cork covers, 1 blue hardcover, and 1 black hardcover. Inside, you’ll marvel at 12 unique artworks by different local artists. How awesome is that? If you want the journal, you’ll have to collect 12 stamps until January 9, 2019. Isn’t it amazing that just with every simple sip of coffee from CBTL, you’ll get to help our brothers and sisters who are in need?

If you’re not one of those coffeeholics, you can head over to Serenitea for a change. Starting November 14, 2018, you can get your hands on their planners. For their 2019 Diary, they celebrate their 10th year in the industry, and patrons will get to choose between two designs in green and white. The milktea shop has not yet revealed the final mechanics but based on previous years, they put it on sale for around Php500, or you can get it for free for a minimum amount of a purchase. That’s definitely one good reason to obsess over milktea.
