Video: Inside My Personal Planner | Agendio Custom Planner Inserts Review

I've been paper planning in earnest for several years now. I was an avid paper planner/Filofax gal 20 years ago when there were no smartphones or calendar apps. I was so happy when I rediscovered my love of paper planning with an Erin Condren Life Planner I got in 2012. But finding that perfect planner has been a work in progress. I followed my Erin Condren with a Plum Paper ring-bound planner because it offered more customization options. But it still fell short of my needs. At first, I LOVED my Inkwell Press A5 inserts, not only because they were so well-designed, with great color schemes and thoughtful mission boards, but because they allowed me to put the inserts in an assortment of gorgeous A5 binders. 

But the A5 size started feeling a little too big for me. I never took out my planner on the weekends. The only light of day it saw was when I pulled it out of my work/mom bag at the office. But I never thought a personal size planner would ever work. Surely there'd never be enough space to include my schedule and to do lists!

I was wrong. While searching online for some customizable personal planner inserts, I discovered Agendio. It's a company that makes custom inserts for an assortment of planner sizes. I had so much fun creating my personal inserts (you can check out my design at the link below), which then took Agendio a few weeks to print and send to me. In this video I walk through the things I love about my inserts and the few forgivable flaws with them. 

The bottom line is that I love these inserts and I'm surprised by how much I love my personal size planner! I can't believe how well this system is working for me. Watch the video for more details, including a peek at the dividers, pocket and dashboard I made for my planner with some adorable scrapbook paper and ephemera! Thanks for watching!
