My Craft Smith Planner

For several years I've always wanted a Filofax type of planner and by that, I mean a 6 ring binder planner no matter what brand as long as I'm happy with it. Every year I would watch other people's planners and 90% of them would be this kind of planner. For some reason, I've always wanted to have one and clearly, I've had a while to decide before purchasing my first so I was pretty sure about this new way of planning. Believe it or not, I have never had so much done quicker since I started using this.

Now I ain't saying that everyone should use this because we all work differently. I must add that I envy those who can remember most things just in their heads! But most of us needs a planner to get things done. Some only use technology and it works fine for them. I've tried that and it's not perfectly suited for me. My phone dies and sometimes I miss the alarms for doctor appointments and such. That's a big no-no for me. Writing something down physically works better for me and my phone becomes a plus instead (just in case). But the difference (in my opinion) between a regular planner and a ring binder is that regular ones are limited. Maybe you're a sports type of person and you only want a planner specifically for that or just a regular one where you simply write down what you're supposed to do that day.
A ring binder is more of an unlimited type of planner. You can add whatever you want. Keep track on dates like a regular planner and add dividers for maybe meals, training or exams.



My Craft Smith planner isn't completed yet but for now, it contains:
» Regular Calendar where I write down my appointments when to publish a blog post and some post-its (the regular stuff).
» Task pages specifically for future blog posts
» Notes pages where I write down how I edit my photos and my own templates for Instagram and more.
» Regular task pages for random things I have to get done.
» Some notes pages for dayly+monthly+ weekly dues.
» A tiny note in the back for rules on how I organize things.
» Sticky-notes sits in the front pockets
» Important letter/s in the back.

» burde* Refill Calendar Kit Regent 2017

Bought a refill to replace the weekly sheets from the Craft Smith Calendar pack. This is because it already has the dates filled and I can't trust to do that myself without making a mistake and without knowing about it. It also includes all the national holidays which is important for me.


We've finally reached the end of this post! I must say it took me a while to keep this as simple but informative as possible. However, I enjoyed writing this post and I hope you liked it too! Let me know your thoughts in the comments. HUGS!
