I’ve been using planners for three years in a row now. I realized I needed it because college work really gets me busy. I don’t fail updating or checking my planner because I don’t want to forget my tasks.
After college, I still kept on using planners for my convenience. The photo you’re seeing is my current planner.
My planner is like a daily assistant that constantly reminds me of activities within the day. When it comes to buying yearly planners, I always have a preference.
Aside from the neat design, I prefer handy but has enough space to write my daily and after-day activities (Yes, I do write my after-day activities).
My current planner is a perfect example. It’s handy. It fits well in my bag. It’s not heavy and it’s a weekly format. It also comes with a garter lock so it’s secure.
In terms of design, classic look is always my greatest bet. The vintage cover of this planner looks really great. I also like that it’s hardbound.
Some friends would ask if I can keep writing on my planner everyday. They would share how keeping a planner don’t always work for them. I understand that keeping a planner can get overwhelming at times. However, for those who keep forgetting things (like me), a planner is a necessity.
In case you’re wondering what I write inside, I always note occasions, holidays and must- do’s for the day. Whether I need to buy something, need to attend something, have to greet someone, I always keep myself reminded.
I also write my after-day happenings and even put doodles to make me remember.
Here’s how my planner looks inside.
I just write activities and add fun stuff to motivate myself better.
I have to admit that most the things I write inside reveals a lot of what I feel during the day.
The front page is where I write my daily and after-day reminders. The back page is for my to-do list.
I like that this planner has a sturdy stand so it looks like a desk calendar. I can easily check something while I’m at my desk.
The brown spiral springs.
My planner is on weekly format which is perfect for my office work, fashion shoots & blog updates.
