1. Use the Plannerisms planner as a Goals Workbook/ Journal and your Filofax as your planner/ diary. Recently on Plannerisms I wrote a long and detailed post on how to use your Plannerisms planner as your Goals Workbook/ Journal (which you can click here to see). In that post I show you all the different types of Goals pages and give you suggestions and ideas on how to use them. I designed the Plannerisms planners with lots of pages for your Annual, Quarterly, Monthly and Daily goals. You can easily use it as a designated workbook/ journal for all your goals, separate from your actual planner if you like. You can click here to see a video I made showing all the Goals pages and more ideas on different ways to use them.
2. Use the Plannerisms planner as your weekly planner and your Filofax as your daily planner/ diary and/ or information book (as I do). I use 2 pages per day Franklin Covey inserts in my personal Malden Filofax to plan and record today only (click here for more details on how I use these). This gives me a thorough record of each day. I use my Plannerisms planner (currently self-drawn, switching to the new printed ones in January!) for all future planning and goal setting.
I've been using a weekly planner plus a day per page planner for nearly two years now. This system works great for me as an excellent combination of planning overviews and plenty of space for daily recording. I did a detailed post on different ways to use the Plannerisms weekly pages, which you can click here to see.
So what's it like to carry two books? The Plannerisms planner pages are approximately A5 size, 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 inches but the book itself is much (much!) slimmer (at only 1/2 inch thick) and lighter than an A5 Filofax binder. When I use my Plannerisms planner along with a smaller Filofax as my information book and daily diary, the two books together are smaller and lighter than one A5 Filofax, yet I get the nice big weekly pages. Plus I like to be able to see my week in my Plannerisms planner open alongside my day in my Filofax for the daily details with the weekly overview to see what's coming up.
3. Use the Plannerisms planner as your household routines/ cleaning/ maintenance/ finances book. This is a great use for the Plannerisms planner if you want it to stay home. Use the monthly and weekly pages for your housecleaning rountines, FlyLady Zone work, home maintenance schedules, gardening, and anything else that needs done around the house.
It's also great as a financial/ bills tracker. Use the Monthly calendars to track bills due and paid, write financial details and totals in the lined pages between each month, and tuck unpaid bills in to the back pocket so they don't get lost.
