Default Planners and Organizers!

Any other planner freaks out there?

I am trying a new one this year by Danielle LaPorte and am LOVING her Lifemap series so far:

http://www.daniellelaporte.com/store/?dlap=60711

Her planners are beautiful but I also just love her little soul-prompts to help spark creativity. She's spiritual and I like her way of doing spirit!

Great thread idea! I love using my planner also. Like you, Medusa, I love the ones with words of inspiration, quotes, etc.

I haven't seen them in a very long time, but I used to get those boxed cube calendars with sayings on them...I loved the quotes of the day especially!

The coolest planner I can imagine would be one with Maya Angelou's words of wisdom as I really admire her most!!

I have a planner with me everyday when I go to work...I enjoy planning my week out and trying to stay ahead of things like birthdays and anniversaries...important dates, etc.

I am currently making a planner (bought at Michael's, a blank one where you write in the months, days, etc.) for my best friend for her 50th birthday. It will have all her important dates in it, plus some inspirational quotes, fun stickers, and extra stickers for her to put in as she makes doctor/dentist appointments and other kinds of plans.

This ties into the writing instrument I use as well sometimes...a nice pen or marker, sometimes a mechanical pencil for tentative plans.

I've had so much fun making my friend's planner I've decided to make one for myself.

It's nice if it happens to come with a pocket, if it doesn't I make one on the inside of the back cover to be able to put a supply of postage stamps in it.

Omg, I thought I was the only one that did that! I have a small(ish) notebook that I use daily for documentation, logging info, notes and just personal organization.

On the inside back cover I've added a pocket for little bits of paper and a supply of post it's and flags for books, etc.,... lol...

On the inside front panel I wrote the Serenity Prayer in its entirety because some days (most) I need it...

I can't even tell you how many organizers, calendars and scrap books I own and never used...smh

Default A plum of a planner

For the past few years I have designed my own planner via

https://www.plumpaper.com

When you go to the site you can build your planner from a variety of options, features and sizes. You choose the front cover art, monogram, script, etc. There are 12-18 month planners, student layouts, traditional layouts, monochromatic tabs, color tabs, the choices really do seem endless. They have layouts for party planning, health/fitness goals, several custom add-in pages (budget, project, wedding or baby planning, etc.) They have folder pockets, stickers and yes it is all round spiral so can be opened to fold flat. I like it because I can design just what I want and not have extra pages getting in my way. My daughter liked mine so much she now uses one because high school is no joke. Those kids are crazy busy!

This sounds almost good enough to make me try a different planner! I love the idea of being able to design exactly what you want.

I have been using the same planner for about 10 years. It is the one I have found that comes closest to exactly what I want in terms of contents: it's exactly the right size, there are monthly and weekly pages, enough notes pages to have plenty of places to write extra stuff but not too many, monthly calendars for previous and following months on every weekly page, plus it's just beautiful and a pleasure to work with. There's a pretty satin ribbon to mark my place. The papers are smooth and creamy and easy to write on, and the papers are gilt-edged. The cover is good quality leather and the year is embossed on the front. I get a different color every year, but always the same model:

https://www.galleryleather.com/plann...y-desk-planner

I also always peel off about 20 sticky notes from a pad and stick them in the back of my planner. The Super Sticky ones work best.

I love the idea of a pocket for my stamps!

When I started going to school full-time last year, Logicaly bought me a planner I had been eyeing. His sister, who went to school for the military FT while also working, often used one and loved hers. I love to make lists, use sticky-notes often at work, etc. I don't have an issue remembering, but I like to view tasks to be done and prioritize because it makes me feel GOOD.

So, I used my planner for the year I went full-time, and it has been sitting aside these last six months. I bought a work-out pack to swap from school to health before the summer started but never got around to swapping it out. However, now I sit here with a clean, open binder and four months of health-focused pages to plan out and I am EXCITED!

Thank you for this thread

I just got this planner that I think will serve me well. We'll see.

I've been using some kind of planner since the 90s. I started with Franklin Covey and then just moved on to whatever struck my fancy. This year I started using a basic FRINGE Monthly and Weekly planner. It's okay, but I don't like it as much as the Productivity Planner I just got from Amazon.

A coworker recommended the Productivity Planner, so I'll try it out for awhile to see if it's what I like.

I am without a planner this year for the first time since probably high school. I use a desk blotter to track my appointments during the work day and use the calendar on my phone to note before and after work planned events. I thought I might hate it but I actually find it more simple. Plus my partner and I are able to share a calendar that way and plug in our dates or times when one of us is out of town/working late/etc. When I told my daughter I wasn't using my paper planner anymore she fell on the ground gasping... "but that's your bible!" hysterical.

I also took the plunge and switched over to my phone calendar this year. I am trusting it more and more. I still have to have a paper planner though, even though my calendar isn't in it. It's for all the other stuff I write down - stuff I used to put on sticky notes, my check register, bills, addresses, everything. I have a lot less paper in my life since I started keeping everything in the planner.
