Maybe I exaggerate. Maybe. But my life would definitely be more disorganized!
Everyone seems to have their own way to set up their planner, from what weekly sheets they use to how they keep track of tasks, and rightfully so! I can’t imagine the same set up working universally, since everyone has their own unique schedules, goals, priorities, and ways of keeping organized! I don’t even have my layout figured out yet! The minute I think I do, I find a better way of writing things down or stashing my to-do lists, so my Filofax is in a constant state of colorful flux.
However, here are some general guidelines I follow:
♥ My go to weekly layout is the week on one page, which gives me enough room to write down any appointments and schedule-related things, as well as jot down some memos and lists. This layout also lets me have the whole right-hand side of the page blank for longer notes, crazy to-do lists, and other miscellany.
I’m still looking for the perfect set of pens that writes on washi tape and doesn’t bleed through as much, but these Stabilo 88’s are great for my color coding needs so far!
♥ Don’t forget to pretty it up! It’s much more motivating to use your planner and get those tasks done when your week literally looks fabulous! I’ve got some motivational quotes, pictures, and hockey cards in the front, and purikura and stickers adorning the cover to really make me want to open my planner on a regular basis.
