New to Me Planner: RAIKA 6 ring wallet planner

I participate in a planner swap group, and recently found a planner I was ready to trade for. It was a RAIKA 6 ring wallet planner. The planner I traded for this beauty was my DayTimer Avalon in the desk size.

Some facts about my RAIKA:

  • 6 rings, in the 3-3 format
  • Color: Bone
  • Cash envelope sleeve that runs along the back
  • Dual secretarial pockets, back & front
  • Insert size: 3.75 x 6.75 or Size 3
  • Zipper pocket in front
  • Credit card slots

It came with inserts, that I have since decorated (fall leaves & woodland creatures, and Lisa Frank). I’m using the To Do inserts for keeping track of blog posts, and the Project inserts for some book ideas.

The zipper pocket contains washi tape samples and the note from the person I swapped with.The original plan for this style of planner was to make it into a cash envelope wallet, but received another wallet for my birthday [this is an upcoming post]. So I carried it around with me and waiting for it to speak to me. (Fellow planner addicts will understand what I’m talking about.)

What I’m using it for is holding my blog posting chart and calendar, book ideas, and I do have calendar inserts in here for advanced planning.

    I love the gorgeous color of it, so pretty!! It seems a lot like the format of my planner, except I don’t have that awesome cash slot along the back , and I could really use it!!

    That’s such a nice planner. I recently just got the Erin Condren, but since I homeschool and I’m following Dave Ramsey’s financial plan, I’ve been thinking of getting a smaller one. This seems perfect, and I like that it’s a wallet too! Thanks for sharing.

    Love this planner/wallet! I had the Filofax pocket sized and it got stolen :-(. I now have a different one the same size as yours. I just love the area where you can fit cash! If you are looking for more printables, I made a free printable for recording transactions if you are interested :-). Would you put a wrist strap on yours to make bringing it in stores easier?

    I HAD to drop by when I saw your post on Together We Blog BECAUSE I am sort of a Planner/Journal whacko.
    Really nice planner. Best wishes as you use it to plan all the things! Smiles from a fellow planner lover.

    Size 3 is just about right. I usually wouldn’t like a pale planner, but this one looks wonderfully creamy.
