On May 25th, 2020 I received an email from our previous partners informing me that they were stepping away from all LBD planner production indefinitely, due to health reasons. You may have seen the announcement sometime later on their social media channels. We continue to respect and support their decision and believe that nothing will ever be as valuable as health and family.

Since the morning after we (unexpectedly) found out the news, I have been working behind the scenes to wrap up the last 4 years of planner production together. The end of the venture agreement was signed and finalised by both parties yesterday. This now allows me to move forward with the LBD planners on my own and have confidence around what I can and cannot do moving forward.

In previous years, by this stage in the year, cover designs and changes to internals would have been released and production was always well and truly underway, but of course, things have been very different this year and that has come with some challenges.

We have reached out to Australian companies (known for their capacity to print large amounts of planners) to get quotes and an indication of printing timeframes for our planners. Unfortunately, due to the volume of planners we are needing to produce and the time of year we are starting the printing, we are unable to have our planners made in Australia.

Whilst we know that many Australian planner companies have their planners made offshore, we wanted to be open and honest about this change with our community so that you are aware of the change before you make a purchase from us. Being upfront and honest is incredibly important to me and I did not want to hide this change from you.

We have spent a great amount of time and energy considering what we, as a business, can do to compensate for this change and are pleased to be leasing a warehouse here in our hometown - Bundaberg, Queensland for packing and dispatch which will open up positions for locals in our future. As always, we will continue to do our bit to give back to the community wherever we can.

We appreciate your support and patience as we make this transition and look forward to sharing what has been happening behind the scenes with you very soon.

With love,
Leanne


FAQS

Q: Will previous years' cover designs be used in LBD planners moving forward?

A: No, I have not been permitted to use any of our previous cover designs moving forward. Nourish, Flourish and any other previous LBD designs will not be featured on LBD planners in 2021 or into the future.
The good news? We have some stunning design covers ready for 2021 and we're head over heels in love with them.

 Q: Will you continue to make the Goal Keeper planners?

A: Yes, but they have had to be designed from scratch and will be renamed. You will notice changes to the internals and of course new cover designs.

We will start with a small, basic range and then build it up from there.

At this stage, we plan to print 3x cover designs that will run from January - December of each year.

Q: Are you doing pre-orders this year?

No pre-orders this year. All planners will be dispatched as soon as they are ordered.

Q: Do you have Afterpay?

Yes, we have an Afterpay account set up.

Q: How much are your planners for 2021?

The Weekly Plan pages are placed after the Monthly Plan pages for each month in 2021. There will be four and sometimes five – one for every week.

 The Weekly Plan can be used for meal plans (all meals and snacks; 1-2 meals per day etc ..) and/or for afterschool activity schedule, map out zone cleaning, fitness plans, affirmations, daily gratitude etc..)

2021 Slimline planner – NEW Product!

About this planner/layout

This new product is a simple weekly planner, which is much slimmer than the LBD Daily and Weekly planners. It is lightweight with a hard cover, and no spiral binding so that it can lay flat, and can carried around in a bag easily.

The 2021 Slimline planner is available in 3 cover designs – Overcome (star), Navigate (navy) and Revive (leaves).

This new product has been designed with a whole lot of thought around making sure it will be simple and universal to appeal to people new to planning, our younger and older community members, and for people who don’t want to carry a heavier planner around with them.

The Slimline planner has a horizontal weekly layout with lots of space for each day. It contains the Monthly overview spread, with notes section down the side, and a habit tracker across the bottom (same as the Daily and Weekly Planners).

 There are goal-setting pages with space for 6 goal areas (without headings/ categories), to allow a versatile application. All 6 boxes could be used for one particular goal area broken into smaller goals, or goals could be listed under a number of areas to focus on for the month.

At the top of each Week’s spread, there is a space for your List of 3 – one per week, so that it is not too overwhelming for people new to planning and younger customers or students.

Notes and ideas pages throughout and also at back of the Slimline planner (for notes, shopping lists, gift lists etc …)
