When I first had a planner (way back when I started my first full time job) I used the pages that came with it to record all my appointments and important information (week on one page) which was fine at the time as I’d transitioned from a teeny pocket diary the previous year. Once the year was out though, I had to buy new diary pages and got, well, a wee bit overwhelmed by the choice of formats out there. When deciding on the format and running of this years posts I decided it would be fun to explore the different types of diary inserts out there and hopefully save a lot of others being baffled to! So, today I’m going to talk about Day to a Page (or D2AP) inserts.
Day to a page diary inserts are literally that, one day covers one page. And this format is available in all sizes for your planner. I used to use day to a page inserts when I was running between 2 jobs, college and university as I had enough space to write down all my plans and other notes too, such as shopping lists, reminders and meal plans. The space was enough to record each part of my day and any homeworks I was given as well. And, I could see at a glance my plans for the following day.
This type of insert is brilliant if you are busy, have a lot of things to do or reminders or if you have a family and need the extra space to write any family reminders down.
There are several other uses for Day to a Page inserts such as for using as a diary or journal, a day to day scrapbook or art journal, daily story writing, poems, the list goes on and on, the only limits are your mind and creativity!
Filofax do a range of day to a page inserts which I love for their simple design. The paper quality is ok but you may get some shadowing of ink through the page if you are not careful.
Paperchase is another favourite for inserts. The paper quality seems a bit better than Filofax which is surprising to me.
And a hunt around on Etsy will come up with some lovely, well designed day to a page inserts for you to purchase and print yourself at home.
Let me know if you use Day to a Page inserts and what you use them for in the comments section below!!! I’m really interested in hearing about new ways of using your diary pages!
Hope you are having a good Bank Holiday!!!
