One of my favorite things about the new year is cracking open a brand new planner. For the past two years, I’ve used an Inkwell Press planner and absolutely loved them. This year, I was actually on the fence about which planner to use. In my stash of office supplies, I have a couple of undated planners that are super cute. They’re a bit smaller than the Inkwell Press ones, so I was worried that about having enough room to write.
In the end, I decided to purchase the coil free Inkwell Press planner this year. I’m so used to this planner now, it’s hard to imagine using something different at this time. My undated planners will wait until I’m ready to use them!
Today, I wanted to share the pages of my planner so you can get an idea of how I use the Inkwell Press Coil Free Planner.
The first few pages are all about the new year. You have two pages for big events each month. I use these pages to remember birthdays and anniversaries. At the beginning of each month, I check these pages and purchase cards to put in the mail for any events happening.
The next two pages are all about yearly goals. There are a few categories for goals, and on the second page you can check in on a quarterly basis. I loved using these pages last year, because they really helped me see progress with my goals.
Finally, the next two page are a calendar for 2020 and a quote.
At the beginning of each month, there are two 2-page spreads to help you plan your month ahead. The first pages are the month’s calendar. There is a side bar for notes.
The following two pages are for your monthly goals, daily habit trackers, and a couple small areas to jot down any things you want to focus on. Each month, I use the daily habit trackers to track my water intake, my reading, and my knitting. My goals are to drink a lot of water and read and knit a little bit each day. I love filling in the hexagons, and it’s really great seeing progress with my reading and knitting as the months go on.
The coil free planner has the Inkwell Press Flex layout, which is easily my favorite. Each day has a large block plus three small sections on the sidebar. I love this layout, because I notate a few daily activities on the sidebar while still having a large block to jot down really important daily activities.
At the end of each month, there are two dot pages for extra notes. I use these pages to keep a running list of knitting projects that I want to remember.
The last few pages of the planner are some of my least used, but I still wanted to share them because it might be useful to you! The pages include project planning pages, budget pages, gifting pages, and travel planning pages. At the very end, there are a few pages of graph paper along with a 2020 calendar and space to write notes for the following year.
