You may remember when I posted a little while back about the dilemma I was having with digital vs. written planning. If not CLICK HERE and you can read about it!
Well, I finally made a decision: back to an actual write-in-this planner.
This is a hard-cover At-A-Glance Planner, measuring 8.5 inches long, 5.25 inches wide and is just over a half an inch wide. The cover is a soft leather, in a lovely shade of pink. It fits easily into my purse, which is exactly what I needed.
I placed this label inside the front cover for extra safety measures!
Hopefully no one ever needs to use it!
The front holds 2013-2015 calendars like this…
…and a list of holidays.
Each month starts like this…
…and finishes like this.
I’m really trying to keep it simple. Normally I’m a pretty big fan of color-coding, Post-It Note sticking, etc. But I’m gonna try to contain myself this time, ha! I HAVE thought about getting some washi tape and distinguishing events with that, though!
There’s also a great event-planning section in the back…
…as well as a nifty lil’ pocket.
So far, so good. (Although in trying to book a dinner date with a friend earlier this week, my heart WAS a little sad as she broke out her iPhone calendar, and I pulled this one out.) Perhaps I’ll find something digital that works for me in the future, but until then, this works. After all, I just need to be able to quickly see what’s going on, and have that knowledge with me all the time. (And it works for that! My husband and I were looking at it last night and decided we have FAR too much stuff going on…)
Thanks to everyone who gave input and help me make a decision!
