Great choice! You’re going to love the portability and flexibility of the half size, 5.5 x 8.5 planner!
Step 2. Pick Your Weekly Planner
This is where I find some of the strongest opinions. Different structures work better for different people. Do you usually think of your life in one hour increments? Do you prefer to organize by topic or by person?
Pick one of these weekly planners and add it to your cart:
- Hourly Vertical
- This is a traditional calendar that gives one line per half hour with some room for notes at the bottom of each day.
- Hourly Two Column
- This is a traditional calendar that gives one line per hour with some room for notes at the end of each week.
- 4 Sections per Day
- This calendar is designed for those of us who wear multiple hats and need a separate block for each topic. For example, you might have one block for work, one for school, and one for home. Or perhaps you’re keeping track of multiple people’s lives and you need a block for Suzie, a block for Timmy, a block for your hubby, and a block for yourself. Since the file is editable, you can just type in whatever headings make the most sense for you.
- Lines and To Do
- This has a simple lined block and a To Do list section per day. I find this works in simpler seasons when I’m thinking “morning, afternoon, or evening” instead of specific hours of the day.
*Note: My weekly view calendars are all perpetual calendars
Good job picking one of these great planners! Now, let’s move on to picking out a Monthly Planner!
