For more than a year now I've been using my A5 Boston Filofax for everything: monthly and weekly planning, personal and work. I absolutely love this binder and I never want to give it up. But I've been struggling to plan my busy weeks in the A5 pages. So for 2017 I have decided to bust out of my binder into a bound planner book with a larger page size for my weekly planning.
I hear you: If I need more planning space, why not just use daily pages in my binder? Unfotunately I have to plan with a week view, it's the only way I function. Actually there are several reasons why I'm happy about changing out to a bound weekly planner: I can get a larger page size for planning, and my beautiful binder (with all my monthly, future-planning, holidays and birthdays planning, and all my work stuff) can stay at home where I don't have to worry about it getting damaged, lost or stolen. Win-win!
I've seen many other people do the same: they use their Filofax (whichever size) for everything except planning, and use a book with a larger page size for planning. Or, more commonly now, they use an app for planning and use their Filofax for other things.
Do you plan outside your Filofax?
And as always on Fridays, feel free to discuss/ ask anything ring-binder related!
