I think we've all made planner compromises at some point. Maybe the format wasn't quite what you wanted, but you couldn't find the perfect one for you. Most of us who have ever used a Filofax or other ring binder have had to compromise with the big book/ small page situation. Maybe the planner with your perfect weekly format doesn't have the monthly pages you need so you tape them in or create a monthly booklet. Or maybe you got fed up and ended up drawing your own version in a notebook or creating printables.
I've done all of the above. My entire planner journey has been a series of compromises. So many planners are close to what I want, but there's something they're lacking: wrong size, not enough space for lists. Many have certain components I want, but are lacking other features I need.
What planner compromises have you made?
