Let's get the ball rolling in this community!

This is the post where we can all introduce ourselves and talk about what sort of journals and planners we're into. Remember, anything related to journals and planners is on topic here.

[personal profile] independence1776 and I will make monthly posts to keep the comm active, but we hope you'll also post regularly. Don't forget that pictures are encouraged!

I don't have pictures, but I am addicted to my desk calendar + whiteboard combo. The desk calendar is just a regular 8 1/2 x 11 from whatever charity sent me a free calendar with the nicest pictures. The first of every month, I transfer all my work deadlines there, and add my regular Shaw Club and Shakespeare reading dates. I almost never have work appointments, but I also put Resistance events and social dates.

The whiteboard is for one week--I repeat deadlines there, and put things that don't need to be memorialized for the ages, like what time to take the bread out of the oven!

I also have a pocket planner from the dollar store--it has a cheerful multi-colored stripe cover that goes with my tangerine-colored fake Birkin bag. (It's REALLY fake, it's made out of rubber.) That's where I put info that I'll need when I'm out of the house--eg if the meeting is at Suzanne's house, I'll put Suzanne, 419 Elm Place apt 2, and Suzanne's phone number in case I have to call.

I have an adorable leather cover for a pocket Filofax,but they still make pages the right size but the holes are in the wrong place!

I downloaded Volt's planner from last year (if you haven't seen it, it's there as an example of how the thing looks), but haven't looked at it closely yet. I think there're some things in there that look useful to me, though.

I have two A4 printer paper boxes of unused notebooks and post-its, plus bags of stationery, so I'm trying to use up what I have in the house. I'm the crafts hoarder, stationery style.

Using my notebooks has made me more organised though! Right now I'm using a journal and planner setup. The journal has my habit trackers and daily logs. And my electronic planner in Evernote has my appointments and long term tracking of membership cards.

Here is my journal:

And here is my electronic planner for selected days with some long term planning. Zoomed in so you can see the text.

Ha ha! *high fives* What's your favourite type of stationery?

The way I see it, tech is for reminding you to get shit done, and the journal is for celebrating that the shit got done :)

Awwwww sure quote away!

It does sound like you have a lovely card collection. Plus it's useful to have a variety in case you need to send to the same person again. Thank you cards are a lovely concept but simply just aren't practised here - I get strange looks when I send thank you emails already =\

On an island in Asia! I guess it's because if it's work, it's expected to be done, and if it's not work, a written thank you is reserved for people that outrank me :)

I'm a paper journaler, of the reflect-by-writing type. I prefer journals that lie flat while I'm writing, which are harder to find than you'd expect, and I love the ones that have a magnetic flap to hold the journals closed. I also have a tendency to collect them, so I have several blank journals with no idea of when I'm going to use them.

I use stickers a lot, to the point where I had to buy an accordian folder for them.

I actually tend to avoid spiral bound because I've had too many pages ripped out of school notebooks just from simple wear and tear. But then, you seem to like that ability. :) I really do aim for keeps.

Stickers! I felt like such a little kid at first when I began buying them, but they make me happy so I quickly got over the feeling.

I mostly use Sticko brand because they're generally flat, but I'll use other brands if I can find them. Most scrapbooking stickers are 3-d or puffed up so they're fairly pointless for journaling, if only because they make it hard to write on subsequent pages and keeping the book closed. Sad thing is, the scrapbook stickers are some of the most interesting.

I do have a single sheet of puffy stickers, but I don't use them often. My current journal doesn't have magnetic lock, but most of mine do, so I have to be judicious in order to make the journal does close. It's why I needed to a giant file folder thing for my stickers; the pocket in the back of my first journal got too full!

Ooh, I'll have to check out Happy Planner; I haven't heard of the brand before.

I have a small date planner in my purse for personal things, like doctors appointments, but because I moderate so many fandom communities, many years ago I realized that I needed a calendar to keep track of all the things I had to do, and so my 'fandom calendar' was born. This is a picture of this past January, color-coded by community/challenge. (I use a Kris Allen calendar so I have pretty pictures to look at each month, though in the past I've also used the calendar Avon gives away because they had some nice pictures, too.)

For the future, I have personal goals that revolve around eating better and getting more exercise, so I was wondering if there's a specific journal (or journaling-type) that would work best for that sort of thing? (When I first started eating low-carb, I just kept notes in a ring binder, and that worked very well for me, but I'm thinking that I might want something that allows me to make goals and look back, reassess, that sort of thing.)

Here via a comment on the most recent DW news post. I'm somewhat inactive on DW, but hoping that finding a couple comms will help me become more active again.

Last month I decided that using electronic planners/to-do lists only wasn't keeping me on track, so I picked up a Rhodia notebook to try bullet journaling. I'm also a fan of fountain pens and own a couple Lamys, which are my primary pens to write with in the Rhodia.
