The Great Planner Debate is over for 2019 and I've selected my planners. One classic size Happy Planner and one mini Happy Planner. For 2018 I'm using a classic sized Happy Planner and a ringed planner by Jane Davenport (of all that wonderful art supplies fame).
Let's take a look at the 2018 planners I've been using.
This is the small Jane Davenport planner with rings. I bought it because I love Jane Davenport art supplies. The planner is ok but just ok.
The pages are undated and you have to date them yourself which can become tedious. I also am not a big fan of the gray shading on the tops of the date boxes. I do generally like the box format for the weekly layout but after using it for almost a year now I'm ready for a different layout.
The monthly dividers have cool Jane artwork on them and I love that the calendar is not on the back of the divider, There's a quote on the back of each one which means if I ever want to reuse the dividers for something else it will work perfectly.
This is the classic Happy Planner I am using in 2018. I love the classic size! The pink rings are metal and they were not the original ones that came with this style.
This is one of the dividers. The calendar starts on the back so it can not be reused. Most of the dividers in this version are pretty plain and simple.
Each month has an opening page like this except colors vary. As you can see its not a page I use a lot but some people simply adore them.
This is the weekly view (half). It is a vertical version and I like how this layout works in the classic size. The pages are very basic and you add your own washi tape and stickers to create a fun weekly planner page!
Well, I've shared so much about the 2018 planners that I'll have to post pictures of my 2019 ones in another post. I'll be using a mini and classic Happy Planner in 2019 and I'll share pictures next post.
