I use my planner over an Academic Year. This means I begin in July and end in June. As the end of June is around the corner, I am busy setting up my new planner so it will be ready for me to use in July. There are a few things I do to get it ready.
The first thing I do is tear out pages. Yep, you read that correctly. Pages get torn out.
Doing this accomplishes 2 things. First, it removes bulk I don’t need. Second, it allows for future planning on my monthly spread, which is perfect because I generally don’t need a lot of detail for future events, I only need basic dates and times.
Below is September weekly 2016 pages torn out.
This is so quick and easy to do. I will admit it was a little hard to tear out perfectly good pages the first time I did it, but now that I’ve done this before, it isn’t so painful.
Next, I’ll show you how I am using my planner now, even before July begins, using some of those pages I just tore out!
