Mixing Things up on My Planner

I know, I know - my post image is a bit flashy, right?!  :)  I was having fun so I just went with it.  I've had some ideas rumbling around in my head and today I decided to try them out and share them with you.

The first thing I did was go through my "Files" section.  I have A-Z files in my old planner where I have been archiving some things.  I decided to archive everything that I didn't need to have close to me.  I also went through my "Project " section and did the same thing.  Now, in my current planner, I only have a Files section of current and frequently used pages.  

I still have an index as the first page in the files section but I now just use A-Z tabs and only the occasional sticky page tab.  We'll see how that goes - I can always change my mind!  Since eliminating my project section, I now have an extra divider that I am using to keep up with my blog

The dashboard has been changed up as well.  Now it is a single piece of paper with some sticky notes.  I've printed my tab names down the right side as an index for my tabs.  I like the way it looks but I am thinking about printing it on cardstock - it would hold up much better that way.

Lastly, I ran out of my weekly pages and decided to use another one of the formats that I created some time back.  I tweaked them a bit and added new categories:  scheduled, today's tasks, blog, misc., and finances.

It's been a long time since I've made several changes at one time so I am looking forward to seeing how these work for me.

  1. That's the great thing about planners, you can always change your mind. The down side is that you have to remember to go through the sections once in a while to check what you have and take out stuff not need. But hey its funny, individual and what works for you.
