(Welcome to the third post in the Planner Awareness Month Blog Series here at Createyou86. Can you believe that April is only a few days away? I can't! The month of March has seemed to fly by. During this blog series i wanted to give some advice, and some insight into the planner community for those of you that may be new, and even seasoned planners.
It seems that within the last couple of months pocket planners have been what everyone has been rushing out to get. The styles are rings like my Duck Egg Filofax Soft Domino, or Filofax Patent Pocket, or a travelers notebook of some kind. I'm not really sure why they have become all the rage, but i have these four. (photo below)
Even though i don't really understand the hype, I did purchase the Duck Egg Domino Soft Filofax, and i have been keeping it in my car for when i feel the need to take notes, or write appointments down (my current back issues mean lots of appointments.) Really everyone seems to love the portability, and i do, but i tried the size for quite a while about 3 years ago, and i just couldn't get into it as a planning system. However, 3 years ago i did setup, and use my pocket patent for a cash envelope system, and it is still setup for that use, but i haven't been using it. I used it for our trip cross country, and it really helped, but after that i decided i would keep it like that in case i ever needed that type of system again.
Although this size is adorable, and small i don't think i'll ever be able to REALLY plan in this size. even with the "perfect inserts" how small the pages are just wouldn't work for me.
I hope that you have enjoyed this post all about the hottest item from the past couple of months in the planner community.
