Why is it so perfect? To get it that way, I had to design it myself. After trial and error for the past several months, I finally have it set up in a way that I feel confident enough to share on here. This is my 2014 DIY planner.
The cover of my planner is a Graphic Image Saffiano Refillable Spiral Notebook. Inside, the notebook I’m using is different from what comes with the cover initially. This is the refill I’m using.
This is how my planner looks from the top. The great thing about this system is that I can switch the covers whenever I want to change things up. When I took the above photo I had a pink leather cover on, obviously.
My monthly calendars are clipped inside one of the first pages in the notebook. I only use the monthlies for future planning and to have a big picture view of my month. Aren’t they cute? The fabulous Sara from This Southern Mom designed them for me. She did a great job.
My daily pages are what I use the most. Every Sunday, I make a page for each day of the coming week. I love having so much room to write notes and lists every day. I can change the format of what I write depending on what I need that day.
After the daily pages for the week, I have the rest of the notebook available for whatever I need. I can write all kinds of lists and notes. I keep my work to do lists, master to do lists, goals, meeting notes, and anything else I want to keep track of in my planner. I love being able to have everything in one notebook!
The best part about my planner is the flexibility and space to write everything I need. Once the notebook runs out, I can just replace it with a new refill.
I keep this Rifle Paper Co. notebook stashed inside the back cover as a place to record ideas and inspiration for blog posts and all my other projects.
I really think I will be able to use this planner for a long time. It’s pretty, flexible, and has plenty of space. I love it!
