2010 Starbucks Planner
Posted on: 14th of December 2009 | Under: Geek Talk, Palate Pleaser

The Starbucks holiday treat is something that I anticipate every single year. For me, the very first day the red cups are available is an indication that the Christmas Season has officially started. I get really excited upon seeing the red menu boards, because it only means that I can finally have my favorite Toffee Nut Latte!

Toffee Nut Latte! :)

The Red Cup Season is also an excuse to collect those stickers for the unlimited Starbucks Planners. With my favorite drink being only available during the holiday season, filling up the promo cards (17 stickers for the 2010 planner) has never been that difficult for me. (Yeah, I really do tend to put on weight during the last two months of the year, because of this! HAHA! Maybe it’s time to resort to some weight loss pills? Maybe not. =P)

I finally got my planner last week.

I got it a little late considering that by the start of December I’m usually onto collecting stickers for a second planner. But I’m somehow not too thrilled about the design this year. Not only do I find the whole design a little too simple for my liking, but the vertical orientation of the writing space for each day seems a bit impractical for a planner.

Vertical spaces?

I do, however, like the graphics and illustrations found inside. At least those reminded me why I used to like the Starbucks planners.

I guess another plus to this year’s planner is that they brought back the discount coupons! It’s not as big (or as many) as the set of coupons that came with the very first planner a few years ago where a discount could be used almost every month of the year, but it’s better than nothing. =P

So yeah, because of tradition and my love for Toffee Nut Latte, I got my 2010 Starbucks Planner. Unfortunately, I really don’t think I’ll be using it, so I’m giving it to my mom instead. =P

    The Starbucks planners they have here in Jakarta are hard leather bound, and I am still way off from acquiring one. I have like three stickers in my own booklet! Haha!

    I managed to get a planner in the year 2008, but I never ended up using it. There’s something about the way it’s made and the numerous graphics that keep me from wanting to write in it. Like I’d taint it or something. Because they’re so freaking pretty. I would have preferred if it’s more blank. But that’s just the obsessive-compulsive one in me talking. =)

    Either way, I hope that your mother enjoyed the planner. =D

    Maria Celina: Ooh, I didn’t know Jakarta had Starbucks planners too. What do they look like? :) Oh, I know what you mean! From past experiences, I’ve always been more careful when writing in my old Starbucks planners. It was as if I had to make anything I write in it as pretty as the graphics! HAHA! =P

    ooh. toffee nut latte, sounds yummy. :) haha… my new fave is a holiday one too. it’s caramel brule. i don’t think that’ll be out again once the holidays are over.

    this year’s featured sbux planner you got reminds me of a yearbook. hehe… could be the cover or maybe even the pages inside. writing plans inside will be just like signing a yearbook. hehe… well, it is for the whole year, so yeah, it literally is a year book. like what marz said though, i think it’s better off blank. it’s too pretty to write on. especially that page with all the beverages in it.

    i’m sure your mother will love the planner. :)

    Ate Janz: Wow, caramel brule??? The sound of that just makes me want to drool! LOL! Too bad we don’t have that here, I’m sure I’d love it too! :)

    Zel: Hi there! :) Yeah, Starbucks in some countries (like Philippines, Malaysia, etc..) have yearly planners. They’re definitely something to look forward to during the Christmas season. :)
