The Wordsworth Planner
I love planning in a ring bound notebook, and never thought I would do otherwise, until I got my hands on a Passion Planner. It is now a huge part of my everyday planning and memory keeping. So, I thought, why not give other planners a try. You never know when you might find one that perfectly suits your needs at the time. So when Wordsworth planner reached out and asked me if I would like to give their planner a try. I said YES! I was a little hesitant at first, because I am very happy with my current planning system, but I decided to give it a shot.
Here is a peak inside the planner that they sent to me. It is an Undated Weekly Horizontal Planner. They also have a Weekly Vertical Planner and a Daily Planner. The bplannerok is hardcover and comes in several different colors (black, brown, blu and pink).
It has three ribbon dividers and an elastic pen loop…huge plus in my books!
It starts off with a title page and a layout on how to use the planner. I’m pretty sure it came with a card explaining how to use each section and giving examples…but I lost it 🙁
There is a section for travel planning and the different time zones, but I don’t find much use for these.
Then begins the Goals Overview Section, with a quote.
There is a place for Mind Mapping and your Vision Board.
And then the goal planning is broken down into three section: Personal, Family and Professional. I feel like they made the goal planning process very simple too! Just choose a goal and a target date, find your purpose and then create your action steps.
Now, onto the monthly section!
As you can see, I didn’t enter much. While I love that the calendar stretches from top, almost all the way to the bottom, the date boxes are just too small for me. This is when I wish I was a sticker gal, I would have liked to just cover up the boxes that way.
I’m not sure why, but I tried to color code the monthly events and I just didn’t like it. If you follow me on any of my social media, you know I normally gravitate to black…clean and simple. I didn’t like the way it was turning out, so I just gave up.
The page on the left comes before the actual Monthly Calendar, and it’s a space for you to write out your monthly goals in the same format as before.
On the right, we have the page that comes after your month. This is a space for you to reflect and begin planning for the next month.
Although I love the space that this layout provides, it’s just not right for me. I have less appointments and lots of to do items, so I like a bigger space for that. I can see this layout being great for a student!
In the back are dot grid and blank pages for you to use as you please. In my Passion Planner, I use this section as a vision board and to keep my bujo style trackers.
On the back cover is a pocket that you commonly find in these types of planners. The only downside is that it is made of paper, and I imagine it can rip fairly easily.
