Put it in your diary!

Personalised H is for Home Toad diary

Hey, it’s October – the new school year has begun, many universities get under way next week. And, yes, Christmas and the new year are just around the corner. Good thing we’ve been super efficient and already have our personalised 2018 H is for Home diary to hand!

We can’t take all the credit for being organised though; TOAD got in touch with us to collaborate on a review and give-away for our readers. TOADยฎ, which stands for TodayOrAnyDay, is giving someone the opportunity to design their very own personalised, customised, hand-made diary.

Personalised H is for Home Toad diary

Need a diary that starts at the beginning of the school term? Want one that commences on the day you embark on a year-long trip around the world? What about a diary that begins on your birthday?

You can not only select the start date; you can choose the page layout, cover theme, colour & design, even the type of binding.

Even though I have a calender app on my laptop, nothing beats good old pen & paper. I find the act of writing something down genuinely helps me remember it! Call me old fashioned, I also think it’s often so much easier to retrieve information by quickly flipping through pages than tapping on an app.

With the help of a personalised TOADยฎ diary, you’ll have your life going according to plan in no time!
