Within the planner community there are a lot of planners that work for people. The most common ones are daily or monthly/weekly spreads. There’s even a monthly planner alone and don’t even get me started on the digital planners available. You would think that with all the planners out there I would find one that benefits me.
I have viewed every planner available and tried a few, in the process of being in school, but nothing seems to work. I need something that could cater to my brain dumping, like a bullet journal but already have everything I want.
My ideal planner will have:
A Monthly and Daily Spread (with a lot of space to write)
I need the monthly so that I can write down the minimalists of things like when an event or a doctor’s appointment is. If they so happened to be in the same day I don’t want to have to prioritize one over the other in my calendar. So a spacious calendar would suffice.
A daily spread would be great (with the day/date) so that I could do some forward planning. If it so happens that I don’t use a day I could use it as a note or quote page. That’s actually a really good idea.
I am trying to track where my money goes so this would be ideal. If I could have it in the daily pages that would be so beneficial. I could also add this myself but having it already there would be a reminder and I won’t have to rely on my scattered brain.
This would be the most IMPORTANT part of my planner. As a journalist/ blogger I get a lot of writing ideas. So I need a place where I can write all those ideas in. This would also be the largest section of my planner but having daily pages might make it bulky and…
The lighter the better and I want a decent size that I could carry it in my purse and still fit comfortably in my hand. Like I have been saying throughout this post, I need A LOT OF SPACE. I am constantly writing. But I also don’t want something heavy.
After everything I’ve said I want in a planner I think I will get a pocket size daily Moleskine planner. Unfortunately, I will have to wait until January 2017 to buy it/ start using it so at the moment I am using the weekly and monthly calendars planner from Sugar Paper L.A. Not bad but not what I want.
If you know of any planners that fit this description please sent them my way via social media @pamithecity (FB, Twitter and Instagram). It would be highly appreciated it.
