It's been a while since I used a paper planner. For the past couple of years, I've mostly kept track of things using this online / on-phone calendar. And it served it's purpose to a certain degree. However, I've come to realize how much I've missed writing things down, having a consolidated place to put little notes to myself. After a long search for the perfect one, I found Julie Kostreva's etsy shop, full of notebooks and planners. I love the cover, but what's more, I love the layout and design of the pages inside. I really like having lots of unlined space for filling in the day-to-day. The pages are a nice weight, creamy, and the text and numbering bold. The only thing I was slightly disappointed by was that the cover is actually a bit glossy and doesn't have the same sort of "expensive" feel as the pages inside.
(while we're on the subject of things to write in / keep organized with: one way to make bill-paying a more pleasant experience; my favorite way to annotate books without permanently marking up all the pages; someday I'd like to learn proper, pretty script-writing; I can't wait until we have a permanent address. more of my favorite paper goods on pinterest.)
What's your preference for keeping track of your schedule?
