5 Weeks of Celebrating 5 Years: Week 4

We are at week four of celebrating my 5-year blogging anniversary!

I don’t decorate my planner pages.  While I like the look of some decorated pages, I find it too distracting to use myself.  However, I am all about the color-coding so that topics for all of my entries jump out at me, even before I read what I have written down.

Currently my color-coding system is:
  • Red – work schedule and notes
  • Aqua – personal appointments
  • Purple – food tracking
  •  Light Green – exercise tracking
  • Dark Green – due dates
  • Orange – random general notes, including blog information
  • Brown – weather tracking and unimportant notations (like the New York Giants)
  • Pink – important notations such as medicine and birthdays/anniversaries

General blue is used for all personal tasks and writing; general black is used for all work tasks and writing.

This system allows me a quick visual of what area(s) need attention on a certain day.

My pen(s) of choice for my color-coding is the Pilot High Tec C Coleto, 4 barrel.  I love that I can have an array of ink colors in only 2 pens.  (Well, those two plus my favorite general pens for my blue and black inks, the Uniball JetStream.)

In any event, I know a lot of people would like to try the Coleto pen.  So, this week’s give-away is one four-barrel pen and 6 inks: one aqua, one brown, one red, and one pink, plus 2 black inks that I will no longer use (one ink was used slightly and the other is unused; the package was cut to fit into my pen bag but both ink barrels are in good condition).


This is a great opportunity for someone to try out this pen before investing money into the system.

To Enter: Be sure to leave a comment below, as that’s the only way to enter the give-away.  Entries are open to everyone, worldwide.  Only one entry per person; any additional entries will be deleted.  (I do approve comments, and sometimes it takes me a while to get to them.  Don’t be alarmed if your comment doesn’t show up immediately.)

All decisions are final.

Good luck and thanks for reading!

  4. Lovely giveaway! I have yet to try the Coleto but it does sound appealing to have 8 colors in only two pens. . . . Congrats again on your 5 year blog - versary!

  5. Well I just came by Iris' Blog Filomaniac following her link here...
    I have to admit that I love writing in several colours but since I'm a fountain pen addict I very seldom have the chance to do so... try carrying 4 fountain pens in one planner ;-)
    And congrats on 5 years of blogging and escaping me :)
