Chic Sparrow, Erin Condren, Hobonichi 2020

This was a hard one for me as longterm planning isn’t something I really take a look at. I store all my future appointments and events in my Google calendar & for the last 19 years my planning has been neatly 3 term driven each year with nursery and then school. But we’re in the last year of school now and things will change for me where University will be less about me keeping track of educational events. I’m pleased to say my Daughter already has a planner of her own for that! So, I am starting to look towards other projects and events and have been deciding what I want to use for my planners next year. Yes, I did say planners….. one just isn’t an option and I’m fine with that – it give me space and it allows me to try new things too.

My EDC Carry Story

It took me a while to settle in a long-term EDC planner largely because when I first started seriously planning about 18 months ago, I wanted ALL THE PLANNERS! I have to say, I was a little dazed and confused by all the brands, sizes and styles available and therefore trying out a few didn’t seem unreasonable. And then there were stickers! So many stickers to choose from but …. would they fit in the planner I was using? Buy ALL THE STICKERS and see! Oops. Straight down the rabbit hole.

Hobonichi and Happy Planner EDC

This week the Design Team are talking about their EDCs (EveryDay Carry planners). For a more detailed look at the evolving nature of her EDC watch for Tracy Macheta's blog post on Wednesday.

I kind of have two everyday carry planners! My main EDC at the moment is (possibly controversially) a classic happy planner! It has the hard cover to add a bit more stability and it is frankenplanned to include my wellness planning and bullet journaling in one place. I've now also got a section for work notes. It goes everywhere with me. I do also have a Hobonichi weeks in my travel wallet with all the gumph from my purse that I don't use everyday. It goes with me sometimes and is the one goes with me if I'm travelling light.
