Planner Appeal

I always knew that my ideal planner set up would involve a monthly calendar and a To Do pad or notebook. I’ve used this set up in some way my whole life. Wall calendar and notepad was my go to until I was in high school. At which time, my mother bought me my first official planner. (I recently refound this binder, and it will have its own post.)

Throughout every containment unit, whatever iteration of planner I’ve been using, or even combination of systems I’m using at the time two things remained constant: I needed a calendar to see how busy I was, and a To Do area to jot down whatever popped into my head.

I don’t know if anyone remembers the old Lisa Frank planners (not the ringed, zippered organizer). The tri-fold, with a calculator, memo pad, notebook, and calendar. I’m pretty sure I had this when I was younger.

And while the rings were great for moving things around, I have found planner peace with traveler’s notebooks. There is something very satisfying about filling up a notebook until of replacing individual pages. A traveler’s notebook gives me a nice nostalgic feeling.

So at the end of the day, Calendar + To Do list = keeping Cori organized (or at least gives that impression!)

  1. So I have to wonder this: how many different planners do you have going at any given time?

      True planners? Just the one, not including the Wall Calendar for husband. Everything else is just a notebook or filled with notebooks.

    Calendar and to do list is my kind of thing. It keeps me very organized.

    Yes I want to know how many planners you have and journals. What’s realistic?

      True journal and planners? Only one going at a time. Everything else is a notebook or notebook containment unit.
