This beauty arrived yesterday. It is my new Gillio A6 Compagna in Croco Honey Mat. And it is gorgeous. I have the Lava Red in Croco, but it has a shiny look to it. I am really loving this matte finish. And it feels good to the touch. Very smooth. But the big news is that I have made a HUGE change in my calendar set up. For years I have used a day per page layout. It has been necessary because I have quite a few appointments each day, and I keep a running task list each day. So this layout gave me adequate space for everything. However, the day per page layout means I have almost 365 pages devoted to my calendar. And that makes for a thick planner.
As I've gotten older, I also realize that keeping a task list for each week is preferable to moving a task from one day to the next if it doesn't get done. That becomes tedious. And, honestly, I'm just ready for a change. Change is always exciting. And who knows...I may like this new set up.
But look at how much less space I have! These two pages are for the entire week. I do have slots for my appointments, but I am keeping my task list on a separate page. I've dated it May 13-19 and the todos represent everything that needs to be done this week. However, if I don't finish some of the tasks, those will be moved to a new task list for the following week.
What format do you use for your planner calendar layout? Do you think I'm crazy? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
