I’ve been using a planner daily and consistently in the last 3 months and thought of doing an update on my current planners.
I got three pocket sized planners last year and kept the Willow as a Christmas gift (from le hubby). I interchange between them depending on my mood but have more or less settled on the Willow due to the squishy-ness factor. I initially thought of using it as a supplementary planner to the personal/A6 but I think it’s holding up quite well on its own.
What I use the pocket for:
– daily reminders / tasks
– monthly events / important dates
– housework tracker
– cooking / menu tracker
– expenses tracker
The pocket goes everywhere with me. I’ve been using it since late last year and it’s been great. I use generic Week on Two Pages (WO2P) inserts and may switch to a really pretty Midori refill set but on particularly busy days, I will add sticky to-do notes or a full day’s insert. I didn’t think that a pocket size will work out but it has.
The personal/A6 size planner is now a blogging/project planner and journal. This is where all things blogging (and in the future, YouTube!) resides. I’m also attempting to journal in here as a creative outlet. I tried using the Midori Date Book but I can’t seem to work with the page layout and prefer my ring binder.
What I use the personal/A6 for:
– editorial calendar << click to view how I use one on paper
– blogging ideas
– social media tracker (section not created yet)
– blogging/project tasks / journal (recorded in the daily pages)
– personal goal tracker
– future income / tax tracker (I’m not currently earning from blogging)
– PR / important contacts
I will cover the setup of each individual planner separately as this post is meant to be a quick update on how I’m using my planners today.
What are your daily planners and how do you use them? Please share your thoughts as I’d love to know.
