I love planners and making lists. But my handbag can only hold so much. With the calendar and notes features on my phone, I don't need anything else. So I'll stick to painting on junk mail, which is my medium of choice lately. Talk about no risk!

It almost seems like a reaction to the tech trend of the past 20 years-people want something more tangible than an electronic device. My "planner" has always been a simple 5 by 7 3 ring binder with a month per page calendar, old birthday and phone lists that I keep editing and several page protectors of business cards. My cell phone is a 9 year old flip phone with no camera- but it only costs me $23 a month. I use it for phone calls only since it's calculator and address book, etc. are laughably outdated and clumsy to use!
I prefer paper to electronic too and I don't want a bulky planner full of non- essential stuff. I keep my handbag lightweight and carry only essentials.

Despite the fact that I have an IPhone I like to see things written down and I am a list maker from way back - I normally have 4-5 going around subject matter at all times. I am definitely jumping on the planner bandwagon. I looked at Simple Stories, Webster's Pages, Erin Condren, etc. I went with PlumPaper Designs on Etsy - it's closer to Erin Condren than the others I mentioned. I had to wait on funds so I didn't get it ordered until January so I won't have it until a couple of weeks but you had the option of what month to start so I chose February. I'm all geeked up about it - like some others have mentioned I want to limit my "techie" time this year so I'm thinking this will help with that also. But mostly I want it as a daily planner to help me get a bit more organized as well as act as a journal. I am planning on doing Documented Faith this year using tip in pages for it also.

Made mine out of a Smashbook with the help (calendars) from a blogging friend at From Chaos Comes Happiness. I absolutely love it and this is my 2nd year using one. Bye bye, dull calendars. I've got my own personalized lovely one with room to doodle!

I love planners. I converted to digital a few years ago and had everything in my iPhone. Then... my phone crashed. Of course I hadn't backed it up because I always forget. Lost everything! I love knowing that when I write it down, it's there and I can see the entire month in front me at a glance. Thanks for this thread! It's so interesting seeing the different options.

I don't use a paper planner, but I really don't have much to plan, so I just go with the flow and put appointments in my iPhone.

Webster's pages also has a stunning set up. I wish I had the need, but I'm afraid it would sit unused if I bought one.

Oh my gosh.... I didn't know SNAP had one! I love the look at it. This year I ended up with A Simple Plan from Mardel, because I needed a planner with a big homeschool planning section. Next school year, I am going with a more out of the box curriculum so I will have to look at this.

For me, I have to put pen to paper, and I love making things pretty.

This looks like fun, I think it will be / is a new trend. Personal thoughts - I think it looks like fun to decorate a plain planner, but I also know that there is great potential for me to not have the time to devote to it and keep it up - leading to frustration.
Me, too! I must have my clutch-size planner with me. I bought the leather cover, so I use it as my wallet, as well. It fits in even my smallest purses, or goes on it's own---especially if I'm not driving and don't need car keys. I have had this Franklin Covey system for at least 20 years! I am a list maker and also have to keep track of appointments, trips, and meetings. I don't need a bunch of decoration to take up space or interfere with what I need to see at a glance.

Has anyone seen the simples stories planner in one off the big craft stores? I am thinking it may be too out control expensive if I can buy it with 40% off coupons.

I used a promo code for 20% off with A Cherry On Top.

I cannot find Simple Stories ANYWHERE any more, now that Archiver's is gone.

My biggest problem is that I need one, like, yesterday. And I had to place a pre-order for the Simple Stories planner stuff because it's not yet available, apparently. If I don't get it soon, I may have to cancel order and come up with a new system on my own.

Do any of you use the Punctuate planners from Barnes and Noble? I got mine last year, and I love it! It's small enough to fit in my purse, but still gives me some room to write in. It comes with stickers, a bookmark, notepad, and a plastic pouch to hold the extras. Six ring binder, too, so it can be customized. And the best part? This week, I think they cost about five bucks!

I may need to do this if all else fails: free planner downloads! Pretty darn cute, too! I think I could make this all fit into my SNAP book.

Okay, sweet Gina, you need to develop a planner line NOW! Maybe you could debut it for the summer back-to-school crowd! The teachers and moms would LOVE you for it! I am envisioning stamps, clippies, bookmark diecuts. So many possibilities!

MaryRose, ahhh....I'm waiting for mine as well (not very patiently) Every time I write a note in my current calendar I wish for the new one, LOL. I found the following quote, I printed it and plan to put it in my new planner

I've still yet to look for stamps that would go with my planner ... that would be fun

I also wouldn't use a Planner and don't really understand why you would want to decorate something like that (?). I have a diary for my loved one's hospital appointments because there are so many of them but that is out of necessity - it certainly isn't for social engagements for myself as I am an Introvert and I am not social at all. I have learned to say "no" at the time when I am asked to go to something or I will stress about it in the same way as you Sophie. I guess now that I am over 50, I have reached a point in my life where I feel that I can say no instead of feeling "obligated" to go to something and spending the whole time wishing I wasn't there and reading a book instead. Slightly off topic but I wanted Sophie to know that I totally get it

That quote was too funny!

Last night, while doing a little searching on the internet, I found a post explaining the delay of this release. Apparently, there was a trade dispute with labor in port in California that has caused the delay. Simple Stories issued an update that said they hoped to have the line shipping to wholesalers by the last week of December. So let's keep our fingers crossed that it's on its way!

The funny thing is that I've been looking at other planners and downloadables in the meantime. And every time I find one, I go back to the SS line and think "Yep, I like that one better." Lol! I'm just glad that I've ordered it and secured my purchase, so to speak. Simple Stories has a bad habit of selling out of product and then retiring it. Case in point: the papers from Sweater Weather collection that I was never able to get my hands on.

Has anyone seen any Simple Stories products in Michael's? Just curious.

I don't have enough going on in my life - socially or otherwise - to need a planner of any kind, but I can see the appeal of "prettying" up this item if I did need one. I guess the idea is to take something boring and make it not-so-much... As I said before - if I was going to do this, it would be for a perpetual reminder-type that would carry over year to year for birthdays and anniversaries and such. Meanwhile, I'll hang with my husband and do something - or nothing - and be just fine... (so I get you and Sophie, too )

I know I got some stuff at Joanns of Michael's little less than a year ago, but it was sale stuff so they might have been clearance get out.

Resisting the urge to get the simple stories now when I won't need a new planner till May. Their pages are just exactly what I have been looking for!

Funny, I bought a whole bunch of the Sweater Weather line from my LSS right before she closed up shop. Was going to use it for a banner swap but couldn't bear to cut it because it was the 'last' Simple Stories I could find locally....

I got an email yesterday with a FedEx Tracking number, my Planner is on the way I'm very excited. I work full time in consulting/sales so I'm constantly using my planner and I feel like having it decorated but functional will make the process much more enjoyable

Yes, please tell us! Who did you order from? I ordered from A Cherry On Top. Keeping my fingers crossed that it will come soon, but have still not received any info. I was worried that everything would get held up by CHA.

On another note, did you see the personal size planners from Webster's Pages? Be still my heart! they are lovely! Only problem...they will not be available until March! But it looks like the inserts may be available next month. I love the personal size...it is what I currently use with my Punctuate planner.

Just thought I'd share that my Simple Stories Life Documented planner and accessories has finally shipped! Woo hoo! I read on the SS facebook page that the stuff had finally made it through customs last week. I ordered from A Cherry on Top. I'll let you know when my stuff comes, and I've had a chamce to play with the system.

In the meantime, I am also in LOVE with the personal size planners from Webster's Pages! SO pretty! Might have to get one for my purse.

Last year I was lucky enough to find the Project Life 6x8 weekly planner pages at Michael's along with all the stickers and cards. It's undated so, I can start it whenever I like. Problem is, I haven't had the time to set it up. However, I can certainly see how this would appeal to us crafters (decorating your planner and adding special touches to it). It's just one more way for us to be creative. I luv the idea and will be happy when I can put it to work. I have not seen any videos or posts on setting this particular version up.

Maple Leaf Do they make a digital planner

I have to use outlook for work, it would be so cool if they made a digital type calendar and contacts.

ive been a fan of planners and cute stickers and things since i was a kid. Ive never kept up with one for long. In college though there were many cute shops selling kawaii planners and stickers etc on my bus route (Flushing Queens for any NYers out there) So if I found myself waiting for a bus I would go shopping. So I had a cute planner for a little while....and now I have tons of things ive collected, mostly cute asian paper sets. Most are Sanrio, hello kitty brand, and other asian brands mixed in. When I noticed the Filofax craze last year I wanted a planner...again. So I went through my stuff and made one. Now that the craze has grown and scrapbooking companies have planners I decided to pre-order the color crush one from websters pages. I like that it is binder style so pages can be replaced instead of having to get a whole new planner every year. I should add I dont have much planning to do so I use my planner (when i have one active) to write about my mood, sleep, etc. I took out the used pages from my old planner that I failed to keep up with last year and found it interesting. I dont even write much, a few words and maybe a sticker is all I need. Since I suffer from depression/anxiety and now insomnia, I think keeping track of my moods is important and can be helpful. It helped me remember some happy moments and times when I was creative. I have tried keeping info on my phone but I cant use my cute stickers on the screen =)

ABSOLUTELY .... I LOVE It! I made the right choice for me with the EC one. It works perfectly for work and personal. I ordered the Frixion Erasable Pens and they are awesome. I did just a little decorating (washi tape - I have lots) and I did order some stickers for some specific things I want to track "at a glance" which has worked out wonderfully. I also added my Documented Faith verses to some pages in the back and some Personal Goal Pages. I couldn't be happier as I also have my list paper clipped in which is so easy for finding and using my list. I also ordered the Food/Exercise Tracker which is really nice.

I do have to tell you, when I pull it out in a meeting, I have it in a little zip bag, in my briefcase, even my clients smile. "It fits my style"

MaryRose, did yours arrive yet?

I am so a paper and pen girl! Or even paper and pencil when I am sketching! Every year - new planner! This year I completely splurged and bought a Kate Spade planner than zips around so I can hold everything in. My original intent was to purchase on good one in order to buy refills every year... The truth of the matter, it is totally more RED than I hoped for and will be my mommas come 2016 as she loves red...

Anyways, my planner has prolly always been junked up, as I sketch card ideas, write down color combos, highlight, add paperclips to attach papers in and have a combination of my schedule, my hubbys,our daughter's, church events, and of course paper crafting fun!

On the lookout for hot pink that zips around for next year!

My Simple Stories Life Documented planner and supplies arrived last week! Yippee! I LOVE it! It's so much fun. I think it's the color palette that completely appeals to me. That, and the fact that the accessories are so stinkin' cute. I, too, am a paper and pen list maker (ugh, I HATE using my phone for that! lol!), and this system really combines paper crafting and organizing. I like that I can customize it for my needs at any given time. Right now, just working on one month spread and daily/weekly pages.

I put some photos up on my blog today!

I also ordered the Websters Pages Color Crush planner because it is a very portable personal size. I am hoping that one will come this week. I probably went a little planner overboard, but hey, you can never be too organized, right?

What's better than ONE awesome planner? TWO awesome planners! I got the Websters Pages Caramel Color Crush planner last week! You can see it, and how I modified it to use Simple Stories Life Documented elements, here:

To add to the different companies making planners - Papertrey Ink has announced their planner line this morning, Moments Inked Memory Planner System. With a Promotional Team of (in my opinion) some well-known bloggers, monthly, weekly and daily pages, and stamps and dies to customize, it seems that they have thought of more details than I ever would have.

{capture the moment}

There's even a stamp for Post-It brand notes, and a set geared toward bloggers. I'll need to do some more thinking before I jump on a planner bandwagon, but the idea of a combined planner/memory maker is intriguing.

I don't want to spend a lot of $$$ for this kind of thing, I pay almost $10 for the monthly calendar every year and that's more than enough! Tried to find a download but haven't had much luck. When my 5 by 7 inch 3 ring binder finally falls apart I'll have to do some searching since I haven't seen those in stores here for years.

Edited to add: I checked out the new PTI planner qnd accessories. I like the rainbow tabs and the colors but it's way too big, complex and spendy for my needs. I guess I'm just lazier now that we're retired!

Based on the preview, PaperTrey's has features that I like (as far as the content and design of pages).

I like the fact that the daily list does not have times listed - I don't usually have a lot of things that are scheduled for a specific time. Being able to use the 3 sections would allow me to list things for work, home, evening...that kind of thing.

The stamps & dies look interesting. Ready made sets of stickers often have a lot of events that I don't need, so being able to pick and choose is a nice feature.

The life planning pages (3 most important things for the day, meal planning, etc) are creatively designed, making them appealing to use.

But...

The pages are bound with a large coil and not removable - meaning if I want to carry it, I need to carry the whole year at all times. (1 1/2 inches thick)

I think that large coil (2") might get in the way, making writing difficult.

Plus, it starts with January of this year, just being released now.

I carry mine in my briefcase so the binding hasn't been an issue, I was worried about that.

I will stay with my EC this year but definitely watch the posts and pictures about the PaperTrey one. It does have some fun ideas
