My Current Daily Planners

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
– notes

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:

– 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
– notes

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.

      The personal is more a creative outlet and the pocket my main daily planner. I don’t find it confusing but it does take a bit more effort to use two planners.

    I like the layout of your blog planner pages wayyyy more than what I’m using, ha! I have some of it in a binder, some in my real planner, and some in a journal. I’ve gotten lazy with my organization of it all, and it’s a bit crazy with knowing what’s where!
    I love the Willow, though, the colors are great (and the pink inside!!).
