It’s not a secret that I’m an organization junkie. I love beautifully designed file folders, agendas, lists and stationary… don’t get me started! I’m on a card kick at the moment. Aside from my laptop, the organizational tool that I work with most is my day planner. I’ve blogged about using a Filofax planner, making my own planner from scratch (part one & part two here), and making a planner from a Moleskine notebook (no biding required!). So when 2013 rolled around and I’d already tried so many options I wanted to try the one I hadn’t tackled yet: designing my own planner and have it printed and bound for me.
I went this route rather than buying a planner because I wanted a challenge, and because I wanted a two pages per day layout that gave me space to make lists and track my work time as well as a daily view to plot out appointments and client calls.
