How to Start a New Planner for 2022
Want to Start Fresh?
If you’re excited to start a new planner, we’ve got the perfect set-up for you! The 2022 Spiral Bound Planner includes a beginner-friendly starting layout, and is easily portable. Featuring Monday Start calendars and a Vertical Weekly spread, this luxe and convenient design is ready to be picked up and used immediately! I love to pair my Spiral Planner with a comfortable grip pen like the Pentel EnerGel RXT and the Blank Tab Sticky Note Set in a neutral color like Sand so that I can create my own dividers and add notes. To write on the sticky note set’s transparent material, use an oil-based pen like the Uni Pin Marking Pen.
Alternatively, pick up our Basics Bundle, which includes a full planner system set-up for beginners! Check out our YouTube video How To Build A Dream Planner At Any Budget: The Functional | Cloth & Paper for tips on using a new functional planner.
Switching Planner Systems
Curious about starting a new planner system, but don’t know how to take the plunge? Start by evaluating the inserts and accessories that you use in your current system, and if you would like to include them in the new one. We at Cloth & Paper offer inserts for a variety of planner sizes, so you can easily start a new planner system with your favorite inserts. For more information on different planner systems and how to begin your new planner, take a look at our YouTube video Planner Sizes and Systems and our blog post How To Build A Dream Planner At Any Budget.
Switching Planning Methods
If you’re like me, you consider switching to different planning methods frequently. The start of a new year is the perfect time to commit to a new planning method! If you’re interested in bullet journaling, you can start testing the method with our Bullet Journal Dot Grid Planner Inserts or the Executive Note Inserts | Dot Grid | 2nd Edition. Read our blog post Cloth & Paper’s Guide to Bullet Journaling for more information about starting Bullet Journaling! These inserts are easy to add to your current planner so that you don’t need to commit to an entire bullet journal, and can instead experiment with the layout in your current set-up.
Our fresh 2022 Dated Planner Inserts | Vertical Weekly Lined and 2022 Dated Planner Inserts | Horizontal Weekly are great starting points for those that are looking for a weekly overview in their planning. If you have a busy schedule and would rather start digging into your daily tasks, the 2022 Dated Planner Inserts | Daily | 2 Days Per Page are ideal for this planning method. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, use a combination of 2022 inserts, such as the Horizontal Weekly paired with the Daily Inserts.
