That's perfect, Ray. 
I get lots of requests to make an insert that combines a weekly diary and a page per week of notes space. Today's new layout is just that, but I think I've introduced some options to the layout that people will like. I ha...

I just printed this at 80% for a personal midori and it worked GREAT!  Very excited.  Thank you.
The Bullet Journal system seems to be becoming popular in planning circles. First described by Ryder Carroll at www.bulletjournal.com, it constitutes an effective system for organising the notes you make in your daily noteboo...

Ray - I've never been interested in this system but lately I've been wondering if it might be a good solution for me.  However, here's the thing.  I have no idea where to start and really know very little about these notebooks.  I started doing research but it was so overwhelming.  Could you advise me how to get started?  If it's too much trouble or time consuming, just ignore this question.  I'm sure I can figure it out but since you're the expert, I thought you might be able to get me started.
I have seen a few references to 'personal size' traveller's notebook covers. Like the Field Notes size, this isn't a size offered by Midori, but nor is it the size of a standalone notebook. Rather, it is based on the Filofax ...

Great ideas.  I especially like the one that holds dolls.  It makes it really easy to see them.
I was asked to write about life hacks. The first topic that popped into my mind is uses for over-the-door shoe holders. Are they just for shoes? No, not in the least. Mine has some shoes, but it also has a belt, tights, and t...

I played around with the bullet journal technique in my ring bound planner. It's a great system. I ended up going back to my Franklin covey two pages per day because I like the layout - a place for everything. I'll be anxious to see how you like the bullet journal. 
Over the years, I have used a wide variety of planners. Some, I loved so much that I wanted to stick with them only to find they were no longer available in that format. Others, I despised so much that they did not last an en...

That is awesome that you have that record. Thank you for sharing that.

My current calendar/planner is really just a calendar and to-do lists; my journal/diary is personal and I don't write in it as often as I should. My goal with bullet journaling is to do more what you do. I want to combine my to-do lists and my life into one book.

I color code but in a different way. I have a 4-color pen and I use the different colors but in a random way. It helps me remember where things are by the color I used and helps me see different items.

I wish I could do it the way you do but I'm not organized enough. Or maybe I'm lazy. 
I learned that the best thing for me is to keep notes in my planner. This enables me to find them quickly, rather than trying to remember where I put the notebook I wrote a particular note into. (See this post.) There are two...

Thank you for sharing, Elizabeth. That is one thing I like about color coding - each person can make the code that works best for them.

Little things can make such a huge difference.  Makes perfect sense.

Someone told me my blog post titles were boring. But there's a reason for that. Read about it here: http://homemakersdaily.com/why-i-write-boring-blog-post-titles/
Have you ever thought my post titles were boring? Here's why they might actually be.
