My Day Runner inserts have arrived! Before I write about how I’m using them and post pictures of them in use, I’m going to write about whether or not I will use them. Here’s the problem:
I love the layout of these inserts. There’s plenty of room for everything I want to record in a day—appointments, to-dos, notes, exercise, food and water intake, plus anything else that I want to remember. The flowers are a bit girly for me, but they’ll do (at least for now) – the colors and prints are light enough that the pages don’t scream pink-powder-puff-girl-power.
However, in doing a test-run, you can see that the lines on the inserts are very close together and that my writing overlaps from one line to the next. This is a problem for me. I like to have ample space for my writing, especially considering that I don’t write all that big (though not tiny, either). Compare that with how my writing sits very nicely on the Filofax lines.
So, readers, I need your help. Do I adjust my writing to fit the DayRunner pages, or do I stick with the Filofax pages? As I’ve said, there’s nothing wrong with the Filofax pages, but the layout of the DayRunner pages is better for the items I tend to keep track of in terms of which section I write in most often during the day in relation to the rings of the binder (such problems, I know). Do I choose writing ease over layout? Or layout over nice writing? Layout is a wonderful thing but being happy with the over look is just as important.
Maybe I should give up altogether, start from scratch…
Is it just me, or am I losing my mind a little?
