WeekDate planners in a new format!

I am VERY happy to report that WeekDate planners are back, with a great new format!

The famous and unique Only Write It Once format is the same, don't worry! You still have space to write recurring monthly and weekly events, and see everything all at once.

What's different is now the WeekDate planner fits into a Voyager notebook! (It also fits in a standard size Midori Traveler's Notebook too!) Shown below is the Pink cover but they are also available in Black, Light Blue, Nutmeg Brown, Midnight Blue, and Burgundy. Click here to see all the covers!

The Voyager Notebook comes with notes inserts and storage pockets. You can also buy refills for the notes booklets with graph, lined, dotted, or kraft paper. Note that the WeekDate planners are sold separately from the Voyager Notebook, so you choose your cover color, get your WeekDate insert, and pop it right in for maximum portability and note-taking convenience!

Here's the WeekDate planner folded out, in the Voyager Notebook:

Also new, the WeekDate planners are in 6-month booklets, so you can start with the academic year or the calendar year, whichever fits your needs. Then you can swap booklets in and out as they get filled, add the next 6 month's planner, and completely customize your book however you need!

For those of you who are not already familiar with WeekDate planners, here is how they work: At the top there is a fold-out place in the cover to write your recurring monthly events. This is color coded so you can write, for example, a meeting that's always on the first Monday of the month, the farmer's market that's on the second Saturday of each month, cleaning schedules, or anything else. (If you don't have any recurring monthly events, it's easy to cut off this section if you don't want it there.)

The weekly pages are color coded to go along with the monthly section. So for example in the photo above, you can see by the color coding that they are the fourth Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday in the month, and the fifth Thursday, Friday and Saturday in the month. Sunday Sept 1st is blue to show it's the first Sunday in the month.

The layout allows you to see two weeks at once.

Below the weeks is my favorite part of the WeekDate planner: a fold-out space to write your recurring weekly events. This is where you put your class schedule, your kids' after-school activities, trash/ recycling pickup, carpool schedules, etc. Anything that happens every week goes here, and that's how you Only Write It Once! For things that happen every other week, you can make a note next to it "Even weeks" or "Odd weeks." For example if trash is picked up Wednesdays on even weeks and recycling is picked up Wednesday of odd weeks. If something is only on until a certain date, you can note that too (for example "volleyball Thurs 4-6 pm until end of Nov.")

Then to see what's going on each day, you look up and down the column. Monthly recurring events at the top, weekly recurring events at the bottom, day specific events written in the days.

This means everything is visible all the time, so nothing slips through the cracks. And no more double-booking, yay! 

There are other goodies in the WeekDate planner too: Month overviews and goals/ to-dos:

Tracking and info, and space to write your goals/ must-do tasks/ notes for that six months:

I won't show everything, but there's also a Time Tracker page to track your progress through the year, a year overview page, a place to write your monthly set days (for example Rent Due 1st each month, credit card payment due 15th each month, etc.), monthly review pages, important dates in the next six months, and how-to-use tips. US holidays are printed on the days so you don't have to worry about writing those in. Never miss another date again!

You can either use the WeekDate booklet on its own, which is very slim and light, or you can tuck it into a Voyager's Notebook to keep it with your notes booklets. The Voyager Notebook holds three booklets, so you can either have a full year of WeekDate planners (two six-month booklets) plus a notes booklet, or you can have one six-month WeekDate planner and two notes booklets, whichever suits your needs!

The booklets are the perfect place to keep your never-ending to-do lists, make notes, do journaling or sketching, or keep anything else you need with your planner. So handy!

WeekDate planners are only available at WeekDate.com! July-December 2019 planners are still available, so you can get started with this easy system right away. And January-June 2020 planners are now shipping so you can start planning ahead into next year!
