Lifestyle | How I Stay Organized Using my Pocket Size Covey Franklin Planner

Pocket Covey Franklin Planner
I would like to ask... are there any Covey Franklin Planner users in the house?  I have been a Covey Franklin Planner girl for about 20 years.  Over the years I've had about 5 different binders ranging from the largest to the smallest. Since I've been retired I've settled for the Pocket size.  I absolutely love the pocket size because it can fit into any purse that I decide to carry. I sometimes just leave my house with my key chain that has a small zip pouch that I can stuff my license and debit card into if need be.... but I really like carrying purses because I love having all my 'stuff' with me.

So.... lets talk about the version that I have which is the Pocket Size.  I have the open snap version in leather, now they only carry the simulated leather version. The binder measures 4.3"W x 6.5"H x 1"D.  Take a ruler and measure 6.5"H x 6.5"W and you can get an idea of the size of the binder.  The pocket version comes with Two-page Monthly Calendar inserts which  measures 3.75"W x 6"H x 0.18"D.  In the photo above you can get a good look at the size of the inserts. These inserts nestle right into the binder without spilling out over the sizes.  There's a wide selection of Pocket size accessories for you to choose from if this is the size that you're interest in.

With the pocket version you'll want to purchase the Lined Pages to go behind each of the monthly tabs.  Having lined pages behind the tabs allows you to go into more details about your appointments and what-nots as well jotting down ideas while you're out and about running errands.

You'll also want to have Page Dividers in your binder so that you can flip it open right to the calendar page or monthly tab that you're interested in finding. I can't live without my page dividers. They come in such fun colors that I find myself changing them out each month.

Now there's quite a bit more accessories that you can purchase for your Covey Franklin Planner but I've listed the basic ones that you'll need just to get stared.  As a Blogger, I've found that traveling with my planner has been so rewarding at times.  There has been so many times that I've had to write things down and having my planner accessible has been just ideal for me.

In the back of the planner is a slot where I can slip my checkbook into... yes I'm a checkbook girl and I still write checks occasionally. But the main purpose that I carry my checkbook is for the ledger. I'm very particular in that I always like to have my checking account balanced at all times.  There's also a business card slot and room to insert other things like a plastic zip insert.  I also have one that I stuff coupons in if I'm headed out grocery shopping or what-not. This has been the ideal planner that serves every portion of my organized life.
