When a person with a planner talks about ink, he or she is probably not covered in colorful tattoos.
Instead, their paper planner uses all the ink.
I use at least two colors of ink in my planner all the time.
Whether a planner is color-coded, my reverse highlight technique is in use, or planning is simply happening in many colors, planners can only accommodate so many ink pens or pencils.
To expand the number of ink pens carried in a planner, consider:
1. placing ink pens slotted into the side pockets of the planner (shown here with an orange highlighter) or, as in the above picture,
2. tuck an ink pen within the rings.
Caution: If you tuck the ink pen into the rings, always open the rings to remove the pen without damage to your planner.
Of course, there are other things that you can do.
3. Consider a multi-pen.
The downside is that these pens are thick.
4. Add your own loops.
These come in stick-on, pocket slide, or wrap-around styles.
5. As a last resort, carry a cute pencil bag.
Let me know how many pens you carry in your planner. Purists, I can respect the number one. :)
