While I normally bullet journal, sometimes I find it time-consuming to set up and like a to have a pre-dated planner on hand as a backup. Since I didn’t have a backup yet for 2019, I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to try out the Inkberry Planner.
The planner is exactly the same size as my normal bullet journal so I found it easy to transition into. The monthly spread has enough space to plan out all my appointments, bills and blog content. There is a nice little space for notes right on the monthly spread where I was able to plan out the books I want to read this month, as well as list out my blog goals for March as well.
I did miss having a habit tracker immediately next to my monthly set-up, so decided to tip one into the planner, using washi tape.
The weekly spread is set up horizontally, which allows plenty of space for each day’s plans and appointments. I decided to split each day down the center with a line so that I could track what I eat on one side, and plan out my day on the other. There is a space at the top of each weekly spread where you can list out your goals for the week. You will also find an inspirational quote at the top of each weekly spread too.
I found it a bit awkward to have all the monthly spreads together, and then all 53 weekly spreads following them. I personally prefer to have my weeklies follow immediately after my monthlies, thankfully there are 2 ribbon bookmarks so I was able to use one to mark my current month and the other to mark my current week which has helped.
I am however really impressed with the quality of the paper in this planner. According to the description, the paper is fountain pen friendly. Now I don’t own a fountain pen so can’t attest to that fact, but I can tell you that there is absolutely no ghosting when I use my darkest black ink pen. I have also used my mildliners and have experienced zero bleed-through.
The gracious folks at Inkberry have generously offered my visitors the opportunity to win one of these functional planners.
