My 2015 Planner Setup

I have been in my 2015 setup for almost a month and archived my 2014 planner book yesterday. In 2014, I have tried many different sizes from pocket, A6, Personal to Midori Standard. It's fun to explore different sizes and see if they fit. But when I have to archive them, it became a kind of pain because they are uneven. So I decided I have to stick to one size in 2015 which is personal size.  Other than the size, there are several changes of my 2015 planning too. First, I bought a Van der Speck Touch Me Standard in Jan with 30mm rings. It has soft and robust leather and functional...

VOTE NOW I received an email from Nike from Filofax UK on July 8 and asked me if I would like to take part in the Monthly Blogger Challenge of Filofax through which Filofax would like to see what makes my Filofax Organizer stand out from the rest.

Doodle with Month-On-1-Page

Week 5 – Planning & Searching – Life Mapping Weekly Chit Chat

In Week 5 of 2014, I've started planning my Feb ~ Here is the pre-planed Feb Monthly Calendar~ You may noticed that I was no longer using MarkIt Dots but draw Squares to mark my events. This is because, Draw squares are more easier and time saving than locate the MarkIt Dots with the color I want, peel it off and stick it on my calendar; I worried that the MarkIt dots will drop after years. Who knows. Another thing I would like to feature in this week's Chit Chat is how I make my records searchable. I did quite a lot of testings and found that the method below suits me quite...

Week 3– Color Coding & Index – Life Mapping Weekly Chit Chat

My January Calendar is now very crowded . I plan, I record, but these do not mean I wanna everything to be searchable in future. Normally I would like only my important events, kids' milestones, book/movie reviews to be searchable.  So I use color coding & Index Page Marker , with which I am able to write wherever I like on the inserts. Then I will put my color code beside those special notes/to-dos/journal, and fill that color code in the side bar. Purple in my color code stands for my hobbies. I watched "Awakening" on 17 Jan. To make this searchable, I draw a purple icon...
