I often change my planner layouts and types in my planning routine. Recently, I moved from using a digital planner since November to wanting to switch back to my paper planner. It’s interesting how these changes can happen suddenly. I enjoy the creative process of setting up a new planner, selecting new inserts, and finding the perfect accessories.
When I was homeschooling, I used a half-size planner. However, once my children graduated, I switched to a smaller, compact-sized planner that measures 6.75″ x 4.25.” Although I don’t need a larger planner, I decided to return to using a half-size planner. Technically, my planner is an A5, but I use half-letter paper to reduce the need for cutting paper.
I purchased an A5 planner from Mr. Pen at a fantastic price to test it out. Normally, when you come across a planner priced at $8.99, you may doubt its quality. However, I am happy to report that this planner is exceeding my expectations. It will take some time before I can determine its capacity and durability, but I highly suggest giving it a try. By the way, I am not affiliated with Mr. Pen; I am just genuinely impressed with their product. You can find the binder on their website (linked above) or on Amazon.
