WEEK(s) in Review: 09.01.14 - 09.21.14

It's been awhile since I posted one of these. I've been busy. It doesn't really show in my planner pages. Basically, my subscriptions started and that takes up a LOT of time and once they slowed down; I had a sale. And I was busy again.

PLANNER: Filofax Finsbury (Personal) in Electric Blue
INSERTS: diyFish LMI V3 printed on ivory paper

I'm kind of cheating in this post. Two days ago I was still using my Van der Spek custom "Senior" sized planner and using inserts I made. But, I got sick of them (the inserts) and since diyFish inserts don't come in A6 (yet)... I decided to whip out my beautiful Finsbury

When printing out these inserts; I had to print out all the pages (btw, this is just a month trial: September) because some of the earlier dates were on the back of the later dates. Since it looked weird empty, I just copied all the things I wrote on my own inserts onto these inserts. 

Looking at these inserts, I'm wondering if I could just stick to a WO2P setup... As you can see, very minimal decorating! Nothing is color coded. I just used different inks to differentiate tasks.

09.11.14 - Filofax Clipbook


When I first saw/heard/read about the Filofax Clipbook; I didn't think much of it. I liked how it looked and wasn't sure if it was a notebook or a planner or whatnot. Then, I saw a few reviews on Youtube on it. It looked okay. I really liked the inserts...

A month ago, I saw a video on someone's planner setups and she mentioned her Clipbook and after that... O_O; I had the major "WANTIES". 

Unfortunately, the only place it was selling was in the UK. Waffling about for a few weeks afterwards, I finally decided to purchase it from Filofax UK. I couldn't decide which to get either. The different versions were both reasonably priced; the shipping is what kills it....

09.09.14 - Restless Planner Syndrome

Have a billion different planners? Are you having a hard time choosing which planner to use? Which inserts to use? Which... ANYTHING? 

You probably have Restless Planner Syndrome.
