Franklin Planner recently introduced a new planner – the Studio Wire-Bound Weekly Planner with a start date of July 1, 2014. This planner is a bit different than Franklin’s usual fare. It’s designed for the person who wants to be organized but also wants room for inspiration and memories. The Planner sells for $69.95 with a cover that can be customized in several different ways. In addition, there are multiple add-ons, like pens, washi tape, a pen loop, enamel dots, note pads, etc. that can make it even more fun. Franklin Planner was gracious enough to send me one to try out. So let’s take a look: There are three cover choices and this was my favorite. The front and back covers are sturdy plastic with high-quality spiral binding. The inside is colorful and the paper is high quality but pleasant to write on. The monthly layouts are on heavy card stock with plastic tabs. The planner comes with a page finder. The cover of each monthly section is an inspiration quote. Followed by the two-page monthly spread with each month a different color and design. Between the monthly pages and weekly pages is a lined Monthly Journal Page followed by a blank Inspiration page. And now the weekly pages: Following the calendar pages is an address/phone section: And then two pages of colorful stickers: Two handy pockets – one on the front and one on the back of this page: And a clear pouch. Here are some of the add-ons you can purchase: This planner is similar to Franklin Planner’s classic size at 7.25 by 9.25. For perspective, here it is next to a FC Compact and a Filofax Personal: If you’re wondering if I’m going to use this as my main planner, the answer is no. I prefer a ring-bound planner. But I’ve been playing around with some different ideas for using it and think I’ve decided to use it as a spiritual journal. I made a copy of one set of the weekly pages to try it out. Here’s what I have in mind. So what do you think? Do you think this planner might be something you’d like to use?
