The Great Planner Tab Dilemma

One of the great advantages of a ring bound planner is the ability to use tabs and dividers to organize information. In previous posts, I showed how to make custom tabs for sections of the planner and how to use special planner tabs for frequent access pages in the planner.

I've been using all of these tabs as side tabs, so that they would not block my Today page marker. But all side tabs cluttered up my planner and made my section tabs disappear and become useless.

So I tried the special planner tabs (except for two that are far to the back of my planner and don't get in the way) as top tabs.

I love it.

The tabs don't block my Today or This Week page markers at all, since they are all different heights. (See the arrow above pointing to the Today marker.) And the top tabs don't overhang the bounds of my Franklin Covey Boston compact, probably because a Boston is slightly bigger than most compacts.

Thank you to all who inspired me with their own top tabs. They really do work.

I think my planner is gonna have to have some top tabs too. Did you make yours using paper clips?

I bought them at Office Depot. Real cheap (under $3 for the pack) and they are made with paper clips. They are also available on Amazon.
