10 Tips to Completely Transform How You Use Your Day Planner

***This post may contain affiliate links. See my "Disclaimer" link for additional details.***

On Sundays, I remind you of a classic Giftie post that you might have missed.

context codes, monthly, planner, ring bound planner, weekly, flashback,

You might want to take notes for this lesson. It's a good one.

Get out your pen and paper. I'll wait.

(Isn't that pen gorgeous?)


Back in 2013, I gave some tips that will completely transform how you use your planner.

After reading them, come back here and find out how I've changed things since then!

(We won't even pretend I sang it even slightly in tune. We will, however, pretend that I'm younger than my musical tastes would suggest!)

Oh, good. You're back.

Mostly, these 2013 tips are still serving me well. I no longer use a highlight color, so FYIs are just marked as such.

For example: "FYI - School Holiday"

The fact that these tips still work is good evidence that you should consider adopting some or all of them. They will give you more space, better entries, and superior records in your planner.

Hi Giftie! Just wanted to let you know that the link to the original post isn't working. =(

Thank you! I fixed it! :)

Wow. That is a pretty intense system! I would forget all those abbreviations lol. So I bought a bigger day planner and use that.

I think I could learn a TON from you! I am not detailed in my planning and I wish I were more so. Going back to study your original post now. Thank you!!

I keep a lesson planner for school. Not for personal. I use my google calendar. Great idea here though. Another great share today on Tuesday Talk.

A bigger day planning is the solution for lots of people. :)
