First a recap: I first tried the Franklin Covey 2PPD back in September, which you can read about here. I loved the format and the writing space, but it quickly failed because I wasn't using it in conjunction with a weekly planner (which I absolutely must do! No wonder it failed.).
In November I realized the cause of the previous fail and tried the 2PPD again, this time in my new Malden, which you can read about here. But after awhile the impermanence of the looseleaf pages really bothered me and I didn't trust myself to archive properly without losing pages, so I went back to a bound daily book.
Then a couple of days ago I was inspired yet again by Patty at Homemaker's Daily, with her excellent post on how she's been using her Franklin Covey binder to track her finances for the past 10 + years. Patty has achieved a level of funtionality and permanence with her FC that I can only dream of! I was previously inspired by her post on how she diligently archives her pages, which you can see here.
Also I discovered I needed more to my daily book than just the daily pages. I needed a place for categorized lists, timelines (lists of things that need to happen in chronological order) and other info. So back to my Filofax and 2PPD I went!
Here's the 2PPD setup, this is the Franklin Covey Seasons insert, I like the seasonally-changing images. I have this in my Aston (orchid color) now, I like how the winter pages look with the cool dark mauve cover.
Veronica Franklin Covey binder (Latte color, Compact size) with bigger rings, so these pages will fit much better in that.
For the first time, I have a Home tab. I realized I needed a place to keep lists of things I need to buy for the house, DIY projects, maintenance lists, cleaning lists etc. Here's what the first page looks like:
In my Home section I also have lists of monthly and annually recurring expenses/ bills, gift lists, and this form that I got from one of the Filofax Lifestyle packs. It has spaces to write contact info for utility companies, handyman, car repair, etc. Here it is blank, I have filled in the other side:
In the back I have A-Z tabs, and a couple of business card holders which I find very handy for popping those cards into.
Plannerisms planner for all forward planning, goals etc. I'm going into my third year now of using a weekly planner for planning and a daily planner for recording. This system works so well for me!
