I’m always joking about my addiction to planners. I’ll get a new one the beginning of the season and all is well with the world… until….I’m not satisfied with the one I have any longer.
The beginning of the year I created a Home Management Binder, Takeout Binder & Recipe Binder using binders from the Martha Stewart collection at Staples.
Here’s a peak into the Takeout Binder
After putting these binders together, I was going to get another one and assemble a planner from The Martha Stewart Collection. However, the collection is cute, stylish, but the durability and quality isn’t good to use for an everyday planner.
While checking out reviews on YouTube, I came across a community of people that are INTO planners. I mean seriously, serious about their planners. SERIOUS! They use the Filo Fax brand. I’d never heard of them until now. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of Franklin Covey? That was the brand I’ve used for years. The Filo Fax appears to come in more colors, purple, pinks, blues, yellows and so on.
And again they remind me of my Franklin. After getting bored with the planner I purchased the beginning of the year, I went back to my Franklin.
My binder is black, largest rings, no closing clasp so I use a large rubberband and it is stuffed. I did get some Martha Stewart dividers. Her accessories are cute!
When I decided to use my Franklin again I recovered all of my old pocket folders with scrapbooking paper.
Just when I thought I was planner crazy…I found many more people like me. I would love to use desktop size that I have, but I would have a hard time carrying it around. Who knows, maybe next year I’ll use the desktop. Until then, I’ll be using my old baby again.
