I’ve used various styles of planners over the years and can sort them into four distinct planner categories.

I’ve learned a lot over the last several years about what I need in terms of a planner and organizer, a general notebook, and how to work towards my goals. These are the quick links to their respective YouTube Playlists on my channel.

Franklin Covey, DayTimer, and Bullet Journaling are found in the Planner/Organizer YouTube Playlist.

Traveler’s Notebooks YouTube Playlist.

Flex Binders YouTube Playlist.

Passion Planner YouTube Playlist.

If you use a planner, what kind do you use and what’s your system? Please share in the comments!

Alright, people, #onebookJuly2016 is over and I get to play with all of my traveler’s notebooks again! I’ve reset and reorganized them since I have a new one (Foxy Fix LP#5).

From smallest to largest:

20160821_150358

ZLYC Passport: story ideas insert, brain dump insert, and temporary lists insert.

20160821_150431

Fabric Dori: gardening insert, homesteading insert, and book notes insert.

20160821_150457

Foxy Fix Marina Le Petit #5: empty notebook, The Master To Do List, and Projects insert.

20160821_150530 20160821_150538

20160821_150540

ZLYC Narrow: Yellow Paper House’s 2016 Monthly booklet, kraft folder, 31 day journaling booklet, and a daily notebook for my daily set ups.

20160821_150611

Chic Sparrow Maverick: Collections #1, Collections #2, Knitting Notes, blank notebook, and Blogging notebook.

The wonderful things about TNs is that I can change things out and around on a whim, a lot easier than when I was in rings.

I carry the ZLYC passport and narrow with me. The Foxy Fix may come with me occasionally, but it depends on the day. And the Fabric Dori and the Maverick stay at home.

Over the past couple of months, I’ve posted quite a bit about what non-traditional inserts are available out there for Traveler’s Notebooks. I don’t always remember to add the same information, for which I apologize, and I’d like to do another one where I give some quantitative information and measurements, information I like to have myself.

I hope this post was helpful! I know having this information on hand (it’ll be going in my TN) will be handy when looking for more inserts (like I need more!).

I haven’t been using traveler’s notebooks (TN) very long, but I am the type to “Go Big or Go Home.” I’ve been building an insert stash. I’d like to share with you my traveler’s notebook insert haul from April.

I’ve gotten inserts from the following stores: TJ Maxx, Big Lots, and the bookstore at USF. I also recommend looking at Ross, Marshalls, Stein Mart, and Bealls Outlet.

USF Bookstore:

I stocked up on the Piccadilly notebooks. I use them in the Wide and my Husband may start using a TN as well, and this is the size insert he likes. They were on clearance ($5.98 for a 3 pack). I eventually cleared out the Barnes & Noble stock of them!

TJ Maxx:

3 booklet set of notebooks for $4.99. Themes: suitcases, cameras, and lightbulbs.

2 booklet set of Moleskine pocket sized notebooks in purple for $2.99.

3 booklet set of Poppin pocket sized notebooks in Lime Green (Tinker Bell green to me) for $2.99.

Big Lots:

OMG! I hit the mother load here!

3 booklet set of pocket sized notebooks for $1.50 each!!!

I cleared the shelf! I’ve picked some of these up at Big Lots before, but in my experience with Big Lots is I may not always be able to find something I’ve seen there before because the inventory can be random. I’m very happy to have found a stockpile for cheap!

I encourage all those who use Traveler’s Notebooks to give this outlet-type stores a chance. There’s nothing wrong with buying off ETSY or Amazon or other websites, but you may be able to find decent inserts in your area for less money than buying online.

Total # of inserts:             29 booklets

Total cost:                           $21.47

Cost per insert:                 $0.74 per insert!!!

I love cheap inserts!
