I’ve tried a few planner options and styles, but the one I always come back to is a dinky pocket-sized filofax that fits in my backpack and isn’t too heavy to carry.
I struggled to find one in the colour-way that I wanted (you know me and those spots!), so I d.i.y-ed it, adding cute little clips and other embellishments throughout.
I wanted a book that was practical, but really pretty and very ‘me’.
Most of the journalling cards and embellishments are Felicity Jane favourites that make me happy each time I look at them.
I’ve crammed in so many, that it’s actually quite a chunky little thing, but I love to leaf through it in a quiet moment and find it somehow comforting to always have a little scrapbook of sorts with me (goodness, true scrap issues here!)
As you can see, my pages are not in any way pretty or neat, and get thrown away the minute the week has passed, so this isn’t a keepsake by any stretch.
But it’s functional and helps me to remember the things I need to, so I save the prettiness for the pages in between.
I love having a little notebook with me wherever I go and use this planner for sermon notes, cafe thoughts, blog post ideas and every kind of list!
How about you? What planner system are you currently loving? Do you use yours for memory keeping or purely for noting engagements (or somewhere in between)?
