    Has anyone heard of Passion Planner? I just started using one, and I really like it. It's more goal oriented, rather than appointment oriented. At the beginning and halfway thru the year, you list out your goals, and what's important to you. This helps with focus. I bought a preprinted one, but they also have undated ones. There's monthly and weekly pages, and there's places to note your weekly focus, good things that happened, ideas you have, and personal/work to do's. On their website you can download sample pages, so you can try it before you buy it, or make your own planner using their pages.

    I had a Passion Planner a few years ago and really liked the way it was set up. I'm horrible at planners so I didn't really use it, but I think I bought an undated one and I still have it so I may use it eventually. I'm hoping to become better at using my planner this year.

    I’m on my fourth Erin Condren vertical. I tried the hourly format one year and didn’t care for it. I was listening to a vlogger talk about her idea to have different journals for budgeting, menus, to do lists and how she found it just too much work. I would too. I use my Erin Condren for everything and there is plenty of room for appointments, goals, menus, to-dos, etc. I am a little addicted to stickers but they look so pretty.

    I was at Aldi a few days ago and there was 1 planner there. I picked it up and it seemed perfect for what I need. It has all the pages that I use, the only problem is that the cover is not that attractive. Oh well. the price was right so it found its way into my basket.

    Katrina, I did a collage on one of my dividers of inspirational words and I love it! I used Modge Podge. Could you do something like that? I know it seems silly, but if the outside isn't attractive to me, it doesn't inspire me to use it. :confused:

    I totally agree that if it is not attractive I am less inspired. The sheets in the new planner are the exact same size and layout as my current planner so I can just move everything over. I also thought of adding changing the cover with fabric or some other form.

    Isn't it funny how a cover could make or break a purchase? I have been buying a plain cover for years. However, I often thought if I found another planner that I liked but has a decorative cover that I didn't like, then I'd use scrapbook paper or material to cover it. I tend to keep my planner open all the time so I don't even see the front cover any way.

    Mary, we are a fickle lot lol but planners are serious business, they have to be just so.
