Prepping My Passion Planner Daily Pages

Well, when I originally received my whole year’s worth of Passion Planner Daily planners, the first thing I did was add in the monthly tabs to each journal.  Then I added a monthly sticker to the first page of each month.  Next, I wrote in the date (January 3, March 21, October 17, and so on – all in proper order, of course).  After that, I put the January to March journal into a cover and set them all on the shelf where I could find them when I need them. (Each journal covers three months.)

Now that I am using these planners on a daily basis…I needed a tiny bit of customization.

All I did in January was take a super thin washi tape and cover up the MTWTFSS, the days of the week.  And the same washi to cover up the time schedule…because I do not use that—ever.

The ultra-thin washi didn’t completely cover every number, but it did cover enough that I wasn’t distracted by the numbers or anything.

So, this month, I chose to use the wicked thin washi tape on the days of the week again—and a regular width washi (what else should I call it?) for the time schedule.  This way all the times are covered…and I feel better about it. 

Also, because I had written the date (August 12, etc.) in on each spread (each day is a two-page spread—which is mandatory for me), I had some trouble keeping up with what day is what when in January.  I started to write the entire date (Monday, September 16, 2021, whatever, etc.) on the top of the right-hand page (as the first time I wrote it was the top of the left page).  Ever since I started doing that, I have kept up with the day of the week much better.  Thankfully.

For February, I also added a piece of scrapbook paper, tipped in, on every Monday, so I will have some sort of visual to instantly know when the week starts, how long until the new week, all of that.

The pictures show the pages right after I tipped them in and trimmed the edges.  I still need to round the corners out properly, but that is coming.

I thought about putting the washi tape and the scrapbooking pages into the March part of the planner—to be honest, January has plumped up enormously and I was a bit afraid of not being able to shove in more tape and paper once we reach March.

I ended up not doing anything for/in March because…what if I change my mind?  What if the scrapbooking paper drives me nuts?  What if I decide to do something else?  I decided to wait and to take my chances when March comes.

And yes, I will be posting my February set-up in my hybrid bujo in the next few days.

How is your planning coming for February?
