Planner Update (January 2018)

Here’s a quick little 2018 planner update!

Basically, everything is the same as before, though there are some slight changes, which I will cover in separate posts going forward.  I have been using my two Van der Spek binders--Cappuccino and Daisy--rotating them depending on the seasons.

Currently I’m using my Cappuccino binder (for fall and winter).




Upon opening, I still have a fall picture of Vermont with a quote I love: “Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”


On the back side of the that, I have my Vermont “Love” sticker.


For this year, I also stuck a sticky note there with a quote for 2018:


Then, I have my quick little dashboard with a few stickies.


The first section is a small smattering of note pages.


I have been keeping all general lists, and some detailed lists, in digital format, mainly because it’s easier for me to access them on the go and around the house.  I have switched from Wunderlist, which I will write in detail about soon.  However, for items that need to get done on a specific day, or if I need to see them in my planner, they will get written down there.

Next, I have a Filofax transparent flyleaf (which they apparently no longer offer in the US) to show where the monthly inserts start.


Then, I have 8 months worth of monthly inserts--the previous month, the current month, and 6 months ahead.


This is a rolling calendar; at the end of each month, I remove the earliest month and add in the next month to round out my 6 future months.

Following that, I have 3 months worth of daily inserts--the previous month, the current month, and the next month.


My daily inserts keep track of my work schedule, items that have to get done on a particular day, and tasks pertaining to my side job, as well as any additional information that I want to keep track of.


So there you have it--a quick rundown of how I’m planning out my 2018.  There will more detailed posts in the near future, as well as an exciting update to my Life Books.  I can’t wait to share that with you!

  1. I'm surprised you can fit that much in those narrow rings. 15mm?

    1. Van der Spek "compacts" are actually 13 mm. I did a count once for someone, and it came to approximately 75 sheets, which includes some thicker tabs.
