Readers Favourite Organiser - Rianne

Thank you to Rianne for sharing with us her favourite organiser. 

1. What is your favourite organiser (Make/model/size)?

My favorite planner is my beautifully red planner. It's a A5 size from Lugano. It's my external brain.

Sadly I do not know more about it. The store I bought it didn't have more information, only a few different sizes and colours they had for a few years. I know my planner had been in the shop for at least more than a year, because the agenda inserts were taken out. More information would be welcome.

2. How long have you owned it?

I have had this planner since August 2014.

3. What is it that you like about it so much?

The color and the flexibility that the ring system gives me. The colour because it's really my color, I own a lot in this color. The rings help me to change my inserts and lay-out when needed. And since I bought the planner, that happens a lot! At this moment I have MO2P, DO1P, weekly checklists and GTD systempages. (inbox, next actions by context, meeting agenda and projects.)

4. Do you use it all the time? 

I have used it most of the time. The most recent time it wasn't my main planner and my external mind was when I tried out a bullet journal in a bound notebook. I still use part of that system, but now in the rings. But beside the time that I tried a different system, I use it every day for almost everything.

5. Do you think the design could be improved in any way? How? 

The design could be improved by adding some more card slots in the front (now there are 3) and in the back a top loading pocket instead of the one with the opening on the side, so I can put in a notepad. Maybe bigger rings, but that will end in more paper even more weight to carry around....

And here are some photographs of my favourite organiser

Thank you Rianne

  1. I'm interested to know more about the gtd pages you're using!

  2. This planner has a beautiful shad of red and I love how the texture looks to be from these photos. I loved reading thru the list on the last page. Is this from a blog you have?

  3. Hi, it's me, Rianne. @imwellpreserved I found the design for the GTD pages online and made them to find my own needs. I am planning to do a post about them ion my blog. @michele which list do you mean? The one with the tree on it? That is from the plan with me challenge. (Google and you will find it)
    I hope you enjoyed seeing me planner!

  4. What a beautiful planner, I am trying to find some diary pages that I can get along with. Need to keep looking! Yours look great :)
