Today most weekly-format 2011 planners begin!
Today I'm starting my Moleskine Vertical weekly planner with my tweaked week + notes format!
I had the idea to use the vertical format like this back in March, so I've been waiting ever since then to try this experiment. I can't wait to see how it goes!
I was going to start my 2011 WeekDate planner today but realized I should try it in the second half of January instead because until then none of my recurrent weekly events are going on, so to give the WeekDate a fair and realistic trial I need to use it when I have recurrent events. I've been obsessing about WeekDate planners since July so I'm very interested to see how it will work for me!
Below are photos of my two main contenders for Planner Of The Year 2011, my Moleskine vertical weekly and WeekDate planners.
Here they are both open. They both have a weekly layout with the days as columns. These planners are both elegantly simple but in different ways.
Only Write It Once" system means nothing slips through the cracks, and everything is visible at all times. This is fantastic for my out of sight, out of mind tendencies.
The Moleskine vertical weekly has the advantage of being a regular, bound book with a simple layout that I could customize in many ways. I plan to use the top as my daily columns and the space below for my lists.
Are you starting a new weekly planner today? Did you stick with what you used in 2010 or are you using a different planner for 2011? I'd love to hear what everyone is using, and if you don't mind please give some details about how you'll use it too.
Happy Planning everyone! :)
