If you are a recent convert to paper planning (not just ring bound organisers) there are so many different sizes to choose from, even more so in bound planners.
So how can you pick one that will work for you? Where do you start?
Here are two simple rules.
1. Do not buy an organiser until you have tried out the page size for that size of organiser you ..have to/need to/would love to buy... Now I know the temptation is often too great.
2. Use loose paper of the size you are considering to evaluate it for at least a week.
What are the sizes?
|Size||H x W (mm)||Rings|
|A4||297 x 210||4|
|Deskfax||250 x 176||3 x 3|
|A5||210 x 148||2 x 3|
|Slimline/Compact||171 x 95||2 x 3|
|Personal (Medium/Standard)||171 x 95||2 x 3|
|A6 (Senior)||148 x 105||2 x 3|
|Pocket (Junior)||120 x 81||2 x 3|
|Pocket Slimline||120 x 81||2 x 3|
|Mini||105 x 67||5|
|M2||64 x 103||3|
They are all 'portrait' format with the exception of the M2 which is 'landscape' format.
