I know! I thought people were lying about that, too. But they were telling the truth.
(My sincerest apologies for thinking all of you were lying liars. Trust issues, you know.)
I found this beautiful, pre-loved classic sized ring bound "Franklin Covey full grain nappa leather" (according to the stamp on the lower right hand pocket) planner at a local thrift store.
TIP: Shop the thrift stores near the business areas of town or near the upscale neighborhoods for higher chances of finding real leather.
It has a full length pocket starting on the left inside edge, along with an older style cell phone pocket (making me think this planner is from the very late 1990s or early 2000s, based on the shape of pre-smart phone cell phones). It also has a half-pocket that strikes me as completely useless.
On the right, the 1.25" rings are completely removable by just sliding them out. There is also a small pocket with business card holder on top, a lovely and tight pen loop, and a full length top to bottom pocket for memo pads.
This planner has the smallest footprint that I have ever seen in a Franklin Covey classic. If someone was looking for a perfect travel planner, for a busy commute, this is it. Big enough and small enough and tough enough, all at once. Plus, it only costs $2.95 (in American dollars).
If this mythical Planner of the World of Lore exists, maybe your unicorn planner does, too. One can dream!
P.S. A unicorn planner is the one that one dreams about, but probably does not exist.
