The Planner Addict Tag

  1. What planner are you currently using?

A bullet journal system housed in a Mead Shopping OrganizHer notebook.

  1. What planner(s) have given you planner peace?

This bullet journal system is the closest I’ve come to planner peace. My ability to manipulate the contents like a binder and the flexibility of a spiral notebook are my two big concerns.

  1. Filofax, Midori, or Erin Condrin?

None of the above. Mead.

  1. Pocket, Personal, A5, or binder size?

Personal size.

  1. Where do you get inspired the most? Instagram? YouTube? Pinterest?

Don’t have an IG account. But I watch a lot of YouTube videos and I have a Pintrest account, so I get my inspiration from those two sites.

  1. What’s your go-to pen?

Sharpie Fine Tip pens. I love the way they write and don’t bleed through paper.

  1. What are your favorite inserts?

I don’t use traditional inserts in my bujo. I did repunch my FC Blooms monthly pages to but in my bujo.

  1. Stickers, post-its, or page flags?

Post-its.

  1. Keep it simple or decorate it out?

I’m not one to keep my pages of To Do lists, so I don’t decorate that much. I prefer to decorate my journal.

  1. How many sections do you have in your planner?

6: shopping lists, calendar inserts w/ daily pages in between, shopping tabbed divider to hold coupons when shopping, categorized To Do lists in alphabetical order, coupon tabbed divider that holds random pieces of paper not coupons, brain dump section.

  1. Did you use a planner for school?

Yes, I used At a Glance planners as assignment books during school.

  1. Rings, spiral bound, disc bound, other? Why?

Rings. I like that I can rearrange things on a whim.

  1. Do you use a Dashboard? How?

Sort of. I use the laminated cardboard that came in the OrganizHer to stick post-its too.

    I keep a simple calendar, but have considered a planner … I found this post really interesting! Lots of things to think about with planners and planning.

    This is such perfect timing since I have been recently struggling with finding planner peace! I think I have found a system that works for me and will be blogging about it soon.

    I would literally die without my planner. My life is in there!

      You’re not the first person to say that. I’ve also heard planners referred to as “my brain.”

    I am currently using an empty journal as a planner/list holder. No one would understand how it works except for me!

    What a fun tag! I am absolutely planner-obsessed, but recently had to purchase a “big-girl” planner with appointment slots in it for my new job. I still enjoy using it, but it doesn’t have a pretty cover, ha!

    I love my planner so much! I totally agree, rings all the way! I have used Franklin Xivey for years.

    I usually us ring binders or journals. I like to check off something when I am finished that task. Like a good sturdy ink pin. Still want it to look pretty.
