Planners on Vacation: Yes or No?

The week before last, I had many questions regarding whether or not I would need to bring my planner on vacation.  I also inquired of other planners did they think I should leave it at home or bring it with me.

I used it up until the last minute before I left and then stuck it in my suitcase.  I thought it was better to be safe than sorry  When we got to our rental house for the week, I unpacked it and laid it on my beside table.  You know what?  My planner stayed there, unopened, for the rest of the week.

My planning was done beforehand and then, while I was with my sisters, all the planning was done by others and I followed along.  As a matter of fact, even though I got back late Thursday night, I am just now unpacking it (yes, I am one of those people)!

Despite all of this, I would still take it with me on vacation again.  If I needed to look up a date, event, phone number, or other details - having it with me is much more convenient to me than having to find the information without it.


  1. Welcome back! Sounds like you had a good time. If you didn’t take your planner, you’d be worrying about everything you think you left undone at home. Just having it there and available, put your mind into relax mode.

  2. Mine will be going on vacation with me. It belongs in my purse. I don't know how much I will do with it while on vacation but it will be with me. This will be our first really "lax" vacation since getting married almost 2 years ago. But I need to be prepared for the week after lol

  3. I always take mine- just in case. During the vacation, it is unlikely to be needed, but on the way & the way back. We often fly, and then there is sure to be something you need. We usually combine vacation with other things, so I"m likely to need it at some point. :)
