Organising my planner

Buying new planners is one of the little joys in life, or at least for a stationary-lover like me. Whenever I was in Taiwan for the summer, I’d always studiously hunt for beautiful planners to take with me for the next school year (Taiwan has the cutest stationary ;)).

Two years ago, instead of buying a structured planner, I decided to go with a blank, gridded notebook, and structure it myself. As much as I like beautiful planners, gridded notebooks are now my favourite way to go. (Though Paper Source is a temptress.)

At the beginning of my notebook, I have monthly calendars, where I write in events and meetings, but the rest of my pages are organised weekly like this. I’ve found that a weekly planner has worked best for me in college, as that is how the syllabi for most classes–or at least of the ones that I’ve taken–are structured. (In high school, a daily planner worked better for me.)

Do you use a paper planner or do you go with electronic calendars? How do you organise yours?
