filofax_domino_blue

I have been thinking about what planners I am going to buy for 2018 with some new releases coming very soon. Like POWERSHEETS releases on October 25th, 2017. Inkwell Press new planners release coming real soon too. So exciting. What system of planning shall I choose?

I know I am interested again in the bound Powersheets from Cultivate What Matters.com.

I know I want the A5 inserts from Inkwell Press for my Filofax. On that note I am sincerely finally considering a Large kikki-k planner. Just don’t know what color to choose. So many beautiful choices. Gray or Black or Felt?? Hmmm…

more Inkwell Press planner goodies…

I bought a few more planner goodies from Inkwell Press this week.

I love their daily docket and daily download pads to help you plan your day and end your day with! See picture above. I find myself planning my day in the morning before I begin anything and the night before to wrap things up and move forward anything I might have left hanging.

I also bought their latest fitness planner. See pictures below. It’s a great 12 week planner designed to help you achieve your fitness goals. Log your meals too. I plan on using this right after my mini-vacation June 1st. I want to uplevel my fitness a bit and this planner is fabulous for daily tracking.

Can you tell I am a big fan of Inkwell Press, their items are top quality, thought out well, and function beautifully.

The other day I ordered their Weekly Kickstart planner pad too. See image below. All things to help keep me on track. I still use a bound planner to keep my schedule in but I like the flexibility of these pads to use daily. I keep this kickstart pad on my desk to have an overview of my week.
